Today I finally have my Zenmed B5 Hyaluronic Plumping Serum and Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer review to share with you. I tested these products for over 3 months! These products are sold together (as well as separately) as a duo that is supposed to help soothe skin, reduce the visible appearance of aging and boost moisture.

About the Zenmed B5 Hyaluronic Plumping Serum
Vitamin B5 and Hyaluronic Acid help bump up collagen levels by drawing moisture towards the surface of the skin. Plumping skin cells leads to a visible improvement of mature, sun-damaged, and dehydrated skin. Contours appear more enhanced, wrinkles are minimized, and the skin looks visibly thicker and more youthful.
About the Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer
Extreme hydration helps support the natural collagen matrix of the skin resulting in a reduction of enlarged pores, fine lines, and the visibility of broken blood vessels. Neutral base helps skin undergoing laser treatments or utilizing our Reconstructive Skincare serums recover with minimal downtime. Helps counter age-related and troubled skin’s natural moisture loss and restore vitality to the skin.
- Vitamin B5– Naturally anti-inflammatory, hydrating, calms & eases sensitive skin
- Hyaluronic Acid – Holds 1,000 times its weight in water to increase hydration and help skin seal in moisture. Helps plump the skin.
- Seaweed Extract – Boosts regeneration, softens, and reduces skin sensitivity
- Omega 3 Fatty Acids – Calms inflammation and eases the discomfort of irritated skin, while providing a suppleness.
My Experience with the B5 Hyaluronic Plumping Serum
I used the B5 Hyaluronic Plumping Serum 2xs a day (morning and night) before I put on any other skincare product, but after I had cleansed my skin. On the bottle it says “24 hour visible skin tightening and plumping effect. Hydrates and heals.”
This serum was soothing on my skin. It was almost like water, a very thin, runny consistency and it absorbed quickly into my skin. I used it all over my face and eyes and throat. I feel like it did a good job of helping to hydrate my skin, but you cannot wear this product on its own. You must put a moisturizer on top. Sometimes, it didn’t play nice with other products that I had on my skin. For whatever reason, this serum did not work well with my skin and my Mirvaso prescription. I think together it caused a film to form on my skin, perhaps because of how the Mirvaso treats the skin. However it worked fine at night with my night time moisturizer.
I love the packaging for this. I feel like it’s easy to control the amount of product you get with the eye dropper.
My Experience with the Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer
I used the Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer at night, and sometimes during the day if I wanted extra moisture on top of my moisturizer with SPF. This product is incredibly soothing on my skin. I loved how it felt. I could apply it on my eyes as well. I love that it absorbs into the skin and doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind.
I hate hate hate the jar packaging. Seriously hate it.
However, I feel like this moisturizer worked amazingly well for me. I feel like it definitely helped my skin to be more moisturized, soothed it after my IPL treatments (which I’m still doing IPL for my rosacea) and most importantly I feel like it has helped to rebuild some of the collagen lost in my skin.
After having used my prescription for Metrogel Cream for over a year, I felt like my skin was getting extremely thin and the collagen was depleted. I stopped using the Metrogel Cream and instead started relying on my prescription for Oracea to help control my rosacea flare ups. In addition to that, I’ve increased the amount of salmon, tuna, and walnuts that I eat since those contain omega 3, which is supposed to help with collagen. I also eat more tomatoes and beets, which contain lycopene. And of course, lots of spinach.
I do feel that for my skin, both of these products together worked extremely well. I feel like my skin is looking better now than it has in a long time. I’ve had less flare ups – though I think that is attributed to a combination of avoiding triggers, not changing skincare products frequently, using these products, my Oracea pills and my IPL treatments. I think my skin is better hydrated and thicker, less fragile and likely to tear.
While I do recommend both products, I do feel like the Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer is my favorite between the two. I’ve tried it with another serum and it works incredibly well for me.
As I mentioned before, I hate the packaging for Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer but I do love the results. I would be happier if they changed the packaging to an airless pump.
Finally, I want to talk about the price. Buying the duo, of course, is a great deal. But the Omegaceramide+ Recovery Moisturizer on its own is a pretty good deal since you’re paying $45 for 3 oz, and my other favorite night-time non-retinol moisturizer is $29 for 1.7 oz.
If you have sensitive skin or rosacea, I definitely think it’s worth it to check out Zenmed products. Between their Gentle Cleansing Cream (which is pH balanced) which nourishes the skin and this duo, I’m impressed. I feel like they live up to their claims for my skin.
