La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum – Review

Here’s a review of another fantastic product by La Roche-Posay. The formula is pretty straightforward; two types of hyaluronic acid for optimal hydration, panthenol (vitamin B5) soothes and helps to repair the skin, and madecassoside, the active ingredient in Centella Asiatica, is anti-inflammatory and helps to stimulate collagen production.
