My observations: Dermaquest Advanced B5 Serum is a deeply hydrating light and refreshing gel-based serum that penetrates the skin quickly, and leaves it visibly hydrated. Fine lines are plumped up, skin is left dewy and luminous, and the effects last throughout the day. I have noticed that this serum beautifully prepares my skin for all of my other treatment products, and it appears to enhance the moisturizing effects of both my day and night creams. It also makes an outstanding base for makeup- so much so that I have even used it in lieu of a primer. My skin is left with an unprecedented glow, and it makes my skin feel and look so good that I can no longer imagine not using it as a part of my AM and PM beauty routine. As with any new product there is always a concern that my combination skin will react and break out, and I am pleased to say that my skin didn't break out or react negatively in any way whatsoever. I also discovered that adding a small pump of this serum to my tinted moisturizer or foundation makes them apply far more smoothly, and radically improves the finish.Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Glycosaminoglycans, Polysorbate 20, Butylene Glycol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Echinacea Purpurea Extract, Methylisothiazolinone, Caprylyl Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Symphytum Officinale Rhizome/Root Extract, Plantago Ovata Seed Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Glutamine, Proline, Leucine, Serine, Carbomer, Plankton Extract, Lecithin, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Leaf/Stem Extract, Parietaria Officinalis Extract, Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil.
