Hi ya Iv been looking into buying good hydrating serum was thinking either the Jan Marini one or Dermatological seems to have good one! Any recommendations would be great though as am trying to sort out keeping my forehead smooth at all times, if poss! My moisturizers are ok but really suitable for all day moisture to & the skin! Thanks for the help and yes I do drink loads of water!

I use Hydra B5 -- it is a clear liquid -- very moisturizing and soaks into your skin almost immediately. You can read about it on the Cellex C site.

My skin is so oily that--especially in the summer -- this is the only moisturizer I use.

Is Clincial im still a bit 50 about with think there are better products out there like Jan Marini and Roche Posay!

Hey Mari thanks for that sure that was one you mentined to me ages ago il get on the case and see about ordering it tonight, do you use it after your vit c or with this? Then do I put my serum on after this??

Mushi do you have dry skin or Oily skin? if you have dry skin like me im using La Roche toleriane cream is good,and there sun tan lotions are great very moisturizing, Clinique do a nice moisture splurge cream and also there turnaround concentrate mask is great to use for hydrating the skin! Also Elizabeth Arden do some good capsules for hydrationl. www.makeupalley is a good website to look at for the different creams that are out there and reviews on them! As far as evening out fine lines nothing is gauranteed but good Vit C serum can help skin ceuticals do one, Is clinical and cellex c, you could always see by going into your looking pharmacist as far as making up your own vit c! Facial massage and excersisng are always good too!

Just look after yourself and be as fit and healthy as poss, vitamins, minerals, water, good diet etc!

Cellex C and Hydra B5 are meant to be used together .. If you haven't used a high quality Vit C Serum you may experience some stinging at first -- maybe fawnie would know how to dilute the serum. I have very oily skin so that's why I can get by with using only the Hydra B5 -- if your skin is dry -- you simply layer your moisturizer on top.
There are other Vit C serums now that are getting good reviews -- just a few year's ago Cellex C was the only notable serum.

I only use the gel Hydra B 5 -- there are other products in the line -- sometimes I'll use the seline cream; I also like their day cream with SPF 30 for the summer. the high potency Cellex C is just their basic Vit C line. If you have sensitve skin = they have a Vit C line that isn't quite as intense. If you're not used to using a heavy duty Vit C serum I can tell you that it stings when you first apply it. So you might want to start with the serum for sensitive skin. I've mentioned before that their stuff is rather expensive --and really I don't know how much better it is than other Vit C serums on the market. I've been using it for a few years and when I buy it from the Shopping Channel it's always at a good price.

Thanks mari i was just wondering really, unfortuantly though I think any of the products with good active ingredients seem to be more expensive than chemist products that tend to be crap! Im not gonna get their vit c their are cheaper brands around of that that seem to do same thing! Do you know what the difference is the hydra b5 and their hydration fluid! thanks

I use the gel because I have very oily skin -- for deeper hydration I'd be inclined to use one of the creams. GLA or seline.

Hey, NY why don't you try skin doctors or avene hydrating serums. I have read some good reviews on their products and the good thing is they are available in the UK. You can easily buy them from boots or superdrug. Roc must surely make good serums for dry skins. Have a look. If you have dry skin, you should always keep your skin hydrated and drinking lots of water also will help. From what I've learnt so far, the best bet is to go for a product containing hyaluronic acid.
HTH.

Cheers, NY. How much did it cost to download the DVD if you don't mind? The skin resurfacing cream can u apply it both on face and neck? I am going to Brent Cross later today and will have a look. Yes, I have seen their vit c+ serum after I bought my body shop one. Will try it maybe after I have used up mine. Cellex-c seems too pricey for me unfortunately. By the way, if u like chocolates, u can check body shop website. Thanks for giving me ur email add. I appreciate.

Hi IluvNY,

I notice your location is London, and I know for sure that you can buy Cellex C products, including Hydra B5, off the shelf at both Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. I used both products for a few years and really liked them. I only stopped when my financial situation changed.
If you go into those shops you can at least try the products for yourself and they used to give samples too (don't know if they now though).
