There might not be a way to turn back time but there is, thankfully, a way to prevent and even reverse the effects of ageing on skin: anti-ageing serums.

Not just any serum, anti-ageing serums are formulated to combat ageing effects like skin’s volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles, and dehydration. Even better than anti-ageing creams, these serums pack a whole lot of active ingredients to really renew your tired skin.

The best news? We’ve stumbled upon an anti-ageing serum that effectively works to re-plump the skin for a radiant, more youthful glow. It’s the La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum, and we invited 11 of our readers to try it out for themselves.

Pssst! Spoiler alert: The reviewers have given the product a glowing four out of five-star rating, with almost all of them experiencing plumper skin!

About La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum

la roche posay anti-ageing serum

Formulated with two pure hyaluronic acids, the La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum is an anti-ageing serum that hydrates and re-plumps the skin. It also contains vitamin B5 to help the skin to repair itself. Yes, that means stronger, healthier skin.

Also, if there’s one thing we dread most about ageing skin, it would be the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. La Roche-Posay knows it, which is why it uses Madecassoside, an extract from the healing herb Centella Asiatica, to help soothe and firm the skin as well as fill in wrinkles.

As if all that hydrating, re-plumping, and repairing benefits aren’t enough, the serum is also infused with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water. The spring water is renowned for soothing the skin and reducing skin irritation – apply the serum onto your face and your skin will feel calmer and more refreshed.

Sounds too good to be true? We thought so too, which is why we put it to the test.

Writer’s review of La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum

Even in my 20s, I have already noticed that my skin has lost some of its elasticity, resulting in fine lines in the areas under my eyes. So, when I was asked to try the La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum, I was more than happy to do so to find out what it would do for my skin.

Upon receiving the La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum, I pumped a generous amount onto my palm and spread the product all over my face. The serum has a gel-like consistency and applied smoothly over the skin, leaving my skin feeling immediately more hydrated.

I changed up my routine a few days later by patting the product into my skin until it was absorbed, as well as following up with a moisturiser. I discovered that the effects I noticed the next morning were much more pronounced, and my skin felt plumper and fresher.

It seemed like my skin also had a healthier glow, though I didn’t manage to observe a huge difference in the fine lines around my eyes. To cover all bases, I also passed the serum to my mother to try, and it worked more noticeably for her: she felt that her skin was firmer and fine lines reduced.

Overall, the La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum works to keep my skin supple, and I’ll definitely be keeping it in my skincare routine.

Summary

Plumper skin was one of the most prominent effects seen on reviewers’ skin after they used the La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum for one week.

91% of our reviewers said that the serum makes the skin look plumper, and all of them noticed that their skin was also more hydrated after a single use.

While the reduction in fine lines or wrinkles was less frequently observed, one of the reviewers said that she already noticed an improvement in the fine lines around her eyes after one use. Another reviewer also noticed that her makeup stopped creasing (due to fine lines) around her eyes, after about three days.

I was worried at first that the serum might be too thick for my skin, but surprisingly, it absorbed easily. My skin felt instantly plumped and hydrated, and I also love the scent because it smells like the ocean.

After just one week of using the serum every day and night, my skin feels healthier and smoother. The fine lines and smile lines around my eyes look reduced. Overall, my skin feels bouncier and more elastic, which is especially noticeable on my hamster cheeks!

This product has worked better for me than other anti-ageing serums that I have used previously. I felt that my skin was plumper and firmer after use, unlike other products that I have used before.

Overall, I really love the scent of the serum. I used just two drops of the serum which I spread all over my face and massaged into the skin under my eyes, and my face now looks more youthful!

I enjoy using La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum as it makes my skin feel plumper and more hydrated after only a few days. It’s also perfect for use in the morning because it gets absorbed easily into the skin. Even though it feels slightly oily, it doesn’t botch my makeup.

I might need to use it for a longer period of time to see anti-ageing effects. As for hydration, it is more effective than the previous hyaluronic serum I was using.

I feel like the Hyalu B5 Serum plumps my skin and makes it looks less dry, even after just one use. I wish the floral scent could be less overpowering, though.

The serum applied smoothly onto my skin and made my skin feel more hydrated. After two uses, I saw a reduction in rough skin texture, and my skin felt plumper after four days.

One of the top things I liked about this product is that it gave quick results and was hydrating for my skin.

Skin concerns: Wrinkles, dull skin

The serum has a fresh fragrance and comes in a decently sized bottle. I applied a full pump on my face and neck twice a day and saw my skin become less rough. My skin felt plumper and firmer after three days!

It’s more hydrating than the anti-ageing serums that I’ve used before. As it absorbs so quickly into the skin, I can put my makeup on quickly after use.

Jia En, 30

Skin type: Combination-dry
Skin concerns: Dehydrated skin, dull skin, textured skin

The serum absorbed quite quickly into my skin and made my skin feel slightly softer after one use. My skin didn’t get oily as easily after that too!

My skin was plumper and more radiant after one day, and it took about two to three days for my skin to become firmer. I also saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles on my face and around my eyes after a week. What I like most is that the serum is lightweight, absorbs easily, and makes my skin plumper.

I really like this serum, and the fact that I can get it from drugstores like Watsons makes it even easier for me to purchase it again!

My skin has a healthy glow after application, and my skin didn’t dry out easily unlike with other hyaluronic serums I have used before. I also like that the serum’s gel-like consistency is easy to spread and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.

After five days, I had plumper skin. Within a week of usage, my skin felt much more hydrated compared to before when I would always experience a tight feeling after washing my face.

I’m surprised by how fast the serum works for my skin concerns. After one use, I saw that my skin was plumper, especially around the under-eye area.

After one week, the fine lines around my eyes have improved and my eyebags are less obvious. The results are fast and impressive.

The serum feels very rich, like I am getting a lot out of one droplet, yet is lightweight on my skin.

As I have fine lines on my skin, especially under my eyes, my makeup tends to crease in that area. However, around the third day of using the serum, I found that there was little to no caking. I am quite certain that it is thanks to the Hyalu B5 Serum because I didn’t change the other parts of my routine!

While the scent is a little strong for me, I had a really positive experience with the serum overall! It is definitely a product that I would keep using after this seven-day trial.

I’ve tried hydrating serums and this one is very lightweight which I like, especially when it’s really hot!

My skin definitely felt smoother and looked more moisturised after one use. Within the week, my skin was also plumper, firmer, and had fewer wrinkles and fine lines. I really enjoyed using this product and will buy it again.
