Hydrogel Moisturizer

This lightweight yet versatile moisturizer features our proprietary B-SILK™ PROTEIN. This silk protein defends your skin from pollution and environmental aggressors while delivering silky skin with a boost of hydration. B-SILK™ PROTEIN is clinically shown to improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity. The unique gel texture absorbs quickly leaving skin with a satin finish that creates the perfect base for makeup (if that’s your thing).

Formulated without: Fragrance, Silicones, Parabens, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum

We are: EWG Verified, Leaping Bunny Certified, Vegan

Apply generously AM + PM from your forehead to your décolletage. For best results, apply after Firm + Replenish Serum. Don’t forget your SPF if you’re headed out into the daylight. We believe your choice in moisturizer is all about the finish you like your skin to have - this one gives you a satin finish with a silky texture. If you’re not sure what to pick, and want to shop by skin type this is great for normal to oily and combination skin.

Pro Tip: Trying to avoid silicone primers? We have some friends who do makeup and they swear by this multi-tasking moisturizer as a primer for foundation.

Since we created B-SILK™ PROTEIN, we needed to prove that it is really as great as we think it is. In a clinical trial, based on expert grading evaluations:

After 4 weeks

After 8 weeks


Showed a reduction in the appearance of fine lines



Showed improved firmness



Showed improved elasticity


“Eighteen B’s moisturizer has a lab-created protein that mimics one found in spider silk to improve skin elasticity and firmness.”
Wearing a daily moisturizer is critical to skin health. Dry, flaky skin is not only uncomfortable, but more susceptible to inflammation because your skin barrier is compromised. More on this from Dermatologist Dr Tyler Hollmig here.

Moisturizer 101:

  • Moisturizing should be a daily habit. AM + PM. After serum and before SPF or makeup.
  • You should feel an emollient layer of hydration post application, this is important to skin barrier protection.
  • We recommend richer creams for dry or mature skin and gel based moisturizers for oily or combo skin.
  • Yes, use multiple moisturizers. Richer creams where / when you’re dry and lighter moisturizers where / when you’re oily (ex: summer). Layer as needed. You can never be too hydrated.
  • “A little may go a long way”, but be thorough with your application - forehead to décolleté. Thank us later.

Not good for brown skin

Can't recommend. Too politely racist.

Ideal for oily skin

I would recommend this for oily skin only, not dry or combo skin. The consistency is very thin, dries fast, and doesn't hydrate. Just enough moisturizer for someone with oily skin. But definitely not hydrating enough for someone with combo or dry skin. It's similar to Clinique moisture surge. Because of it's marketing as a silky moisturizer, I was hoping for an uber lush finish like Biosill. But, it's just the same effect as any other thin moisturizer. Does the bare minimum of hydration.

Great light moisturiser

I had been searching for a light moisturiser. This is perfect - hydrating, yet light - no glugginess. It also seals in my serum nicely.

Packs a punch

this was a very lightweight moisturizer that I was afraid would be too light for my skin - however it packed a punch when applied - skin was moisturized and there truly felt like there was a protecting layer locking everything in! I use it in the day and would be perfect with summer approaching

I like the way it feels

It feels great on my skin, not greasy at all. I'll be picking up some more when I run out (soon as I use it every day!!)
