Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel
- "This was my best spring discovery! I absolutely love how hydrating it is! My skin gets very dry around spring because of the seasonal changes but this keeps my skin looking soft and beautiful!" in 98 reviews
- "A great moisturizer for oily skin!!! If you have dry skin as it's suggested use this before an oil and/or in conjunction with a thicker moisturizer that adds oil (while this adds hydration). It has great ingredients but is as lightweight at the Clinique Dramatically Different Gel. " in 60 reviews
- "This is a one of a kind product. I applied this from a tester expecting a whatever hydrating serum. I was pleasantly surprised. I have very dry and sensitive skin. This hydrated without feeling even slightly greasy. And its silicone free so it doesn't have that weird texture either. It just makes your skin feel like super hydrated skin. This wears so well under makeup. I am falling more in love with this line everyday. " in 32 reviews
I got a sample of this with my points from Sephora and was excited to try the product because of my other positive experiences with drunk elephant products. Once trying the product i realized how hydrating it was. It helped smooth my dry skin and keep me feeling moist during the day! After my sample size ran out i repurchased in the large size. I will continue to use this product in my routine!
This is a nice gel form of Hyaluronic Acid and panthenol. It is essentially a booster for your moisturizer. While I think this is a good product, there are WAY less expensive options that perform the same or better. Try Hadalabo; it’s 1/4 of the cost and I honestly think it performs better than B-Hydra. Drunk Elephant makes some products worth the splurge, but save your money for those. B-Hydra isn’t one you need to fork over the $$$$ on.
I really like this added into the polypeptide cream also from drunk elephant. I have very dry at times flaky skin especially in tbe winter. No smell really, good ingredients, and it absorbs quickly into your skin. Those two and the baby facial are the only products I feel like I wluld purchase again. I have the full size of the entire line and have used almost all of the products completely. I feel like this one is worth the investment.
I adore this hydra gel! It has so many great ingredients in it and my skin responds so well to it. I love using this after the vitamin c serum from drunk elephant and topping it off with the marula oil. Those 3 together make my skin look perfectly hydrated, plump and soft. I use the hydra b with other products and it has not given my skin any irritation thus far. I love this gel moisturizer and it is a great product. I highly recommend.

Review for: Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel, Drunk Elephant B Hydra(TM) Intensive Hydration Gel 1.69 oz more...
I purchased this about three months ago and I use it daily I have super dehydrated skin and I feel like after my hydration toner applying this before my moisturizer it has made a huge difference in my skin business and deafly makes a difference in my make up not being patchy or scaly because my skin is dry underneath I would definitely recommend this to anybody with dry skin as just an additive for their skin care routine
Absolutely love this gel for winter time when my skin is dry and needs some extra TLC. I love mixing this with my lala retro whipped cream moisturizer to give me an extra kick of hydration and help lock moisture in! This works phenomenally well for hydrating the skin, even on dry and rough patches after some retinol use. I’m so impressed with this and everything in DE’s line, I couldn’t recommend more!
I wanted to love all of the DE products. Sephora sold me on them. I bought the mini kit to go full in. But. Flash forward a month and my skin is the worst it’s been in my 42 years of life. It is doing things it’s never done. Blackheads. White heads. All over my face. Dry peel, translucent. I’m not under the care of an aesthetician trying to get right. So. This may work great for some but my normalish skin freaked out.
Okay, so this product is really between 3 and 4 stars for me, but since that isn't an option, I'll give it a little more credit than I really feel it's due, because 3 is a little harsh. Positives first; first off, I love the packaging, but DE packaging is all around just pretty great. Secondly, I love the feel of this product: lightweight, non greasy, and generally 'nice.' But here's my struggle with B-Hydra: it's good, but it's not GREAT unless you mix it with another product...which at a $52 price point, I don't feel like I should have to do. I have super dry skin, so it needs all the moisture it can get, and I just don't feel like this delivers it on its own. So if you're not dryer than a desert like me, you might like this, but if your skin is a thirsty monster like mine, you may want to spend your $$$ On something a little more heavy duty. Would I but this again? Doubtful. I will likely be exchanging for something else. Would I recommend it? Yes, but only for people without obnoxiously dry skin.
I like this hydration gel a lot, I layer it under an occlusive moisturizer at nighttime. Deducted 1 star for price, I found it similar enough to a drugstore hydration gel (with hyaloronic acid) that I’m not sure I’d repurchase. If they were the same price I’d grab this one, I do prefer it, but not sure it’s different enough to repurchase at the price point 😬
I have used almost all of drunk elephant’s products I’ve loved every single one of them this on the other hand has done nothing to my skin I didn’t notice a difference didn’t feel a difference and it’s a very light moisturizer so it doesn’t even feel like you’re really moisturizing your skin the three stars is only because of the ingredients
