free shipping on all australian orders.

Dehydrated and dry skin can feel uncomfortable and display signs of ageing earlier. Proper hydration can make a massive difference in the look and feel of your complexion. The Ordinary has developed one of the best Hyaluronic Acid treatments for an instant hydration boost and easy absorption. Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 has quickly become one of the brand’s most-loved products. Because it benefits all skin types, this serum is a must-have in anyone’s skincare cabinet.


Key benefits of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5


  • Instant hydration for skin
  • Suitable for all skin types, including oily skin, due to its easy absorption and weightless texture
  • Enriched with Vitamin B5 to boost surface hydration
  • Uses multiple molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid for multi-depth hydration
  • Non-comedogenic formulation
  •  30ml


What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule that naturally occurs in the body and is known for its incredible water-retention properties. One single molecule can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. When applied as part of a skincare routine, Hyaluronic Acid provides instant hydration to plump and nourish the skin.


How does The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 work?

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is a water-based formula that blends three different weights of Hyaluronic Acid with a Hyaluronic Acid Crosspolymer to provide multi-depth hydration. This means the serum not only helps to hydrate the deeper layers of the skin but also locks in existing moisture and absorbs easily into the skin. This product is enriched with additional Vitamin B5, which boosts surface hydration and supports the work of the Hyaluronic Acid.


How to use The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5?

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 can easily be incorporated into any skincare routine due to its weightless texture. It should be used both in the morning and at night-time. Apply after other water-based serums and prior to oils and moisturisers.


Who should use The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5?

Due to its lightweight texture, this Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 serum can be beneficial for all skin types, even those with oily but dehydrated skin. This serum from The Ordinary suits anyone who is looking to plump their dry, dehydrated, or damaged complexion.


What is Vitamin B5, and how does it work with Hyaluronic Acid?

Vitamin B5, otherwise known as Pantothenic Acid, is a naturally occurring vitamin that helps to increase the surface hydration levels of the skin. It works as a natural moisturiser, allowing the skin to easily absorb moisture from the air, keeping your face soft and hydrated.


Vitamin B5 works extremely well at supporting the work of Hyaluronic Acid. This vitamin allows the acid to penetrate and moisturise the deeper layers of the skin, ensuring full-thickness hydration. The combination of the two ingredients makes this serum from The Ordinary one of the best moisture-boosting products available.


Is The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 good for acne?

Whilst the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid serum has not been developed specifically to treat or heal acne, it will help hydrate skin during or after a breakout.


Is The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 good for scars/pigmentation?

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 does not treat scarring and pigmentation when used alone. However, it will support a routine to reduce scarring over time and help to plump up the skin for a healthier look and feel.


Is The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 good for rosacea?

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is excellent for helping to hydrate and repair rosacea-prone skin.


Is The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 comedogenic?

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is non-comedogenic.


Is The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 good for wrinkles?

Dehydration and dryness can emphasise the look and depth of fine lines and wrinkles. By using The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, you can make your complexion look plumper and minimise the appearance of facial lines. Whilst this serum will not reverse the signs of premature ageing, it works well in conjunction with other anti-ageing products and helps to rehydrate skin as it becomes older and drier.

Such a good price - 13-07-2018 by

I can feel a really big improvement in my skin since using this, I can definitely see that my skin looks plumper and less texturised, I think this product is great for what you get considering the price and I like this product added with my moisturiser as an intense nighttime hydration.

Great little product for a smoother complexion. - 13-07-2018 by

I’ve been using this product for about two weeks now and I am happy with the results, you don’t need much to cover your entire face and afterwards, you may experience a tightness feeling on your face but it also leaves your face looking so smooth. I always use a moisturiser afterwards because for me, it does make my skin feel quite tight and dry but overall, I am happy with the results I’ve been experiencing since using this product. I have oily/combination skin and this product seems to work well for me!

A good product for the price point. - 13-07-2018 by

This product is great for the price point. I have been using it for about 4 months and have noticed a difference in the smoothness of my skin and the overall hydration. I have tried other brands that are more expensive, and i would say that this is a good alternative if you are price conscious, however, it seemed as though you really do get what you pay for. This is a lovely product, but i will be switching back to my old favourite, despite to price hike.

Pretty good! - 12-07-2018 by

I have dehydrated combination skin and i needed an alternative for the medik8 hyrdra b5 as it was too expensive to keep repurchasing.
This little gem is the best, Leaves skin feeling firm and supple, a little goes a long way! Using this for 3 months now and the hydrating effects are awesome!

Instant effect! - 12-07-2018 by

This is my new staple! I have combination skin starting to show signs of age and this immediately improves the look of my fine lines. Soaks in quickly and my skin feels so lovely after using. Cannot recommend this enough! Should be a must in any The Ordinary regime.

Very Happy - 11-07-2018 by

I mix the hyaluronic acid with aloe vera gel to use on my skin as I have very sensitive skin. It works very well to soften and moisturize my skin without any oilyness or irritation. Very happy with this product and will definitely continue to use it.

Everyone should use - 11-07-2018 by

I did some extensive research on using Hyaluronic Acid and it sounds like a magic product. And it is. After using for a month i can tell my skin has more natural moisture. And i find the Ordinary brand the perfect price point.

So affordable - 11-07-2018 by

I was a bit skeptical about this but it has exceeded my expectations. I have dry sensitive skin and hasn’t given me any rash and gives my skin a nice plump appearance. My skin feels more hydrated and has been a great addition to my skincare routine. I use this then the peptide serum then a moisturiser. I feel it makes my moisturiser sink in more. For the price it’s extremely good value for money. Great it has no fragrance so genuinely think anyone could use this and benefit from it.

Works really well and a great price - 10-07-2018 by

it was recomended to me by a friend and since I have added it into my skin routine, day and night my skin has definitely improved, keeping my skin from being oily, while not over drying it. Also this brand is so affordable and I would definitely recommend it.

Not good for me - 10-07-2018 by

Unfortunately, this product broke me out. I have sensitive, combination, acne-prone and dehydrated skin, and was hoping this would be great for both hydration and blemishes. Unfortunately this broke me out all over my face - including areas that don't usually break out. Might work for some but did not work for me :(

Plumping & good value - 10-07-2018 by

I use this to Hydrate & plump it made my skin feel softer quite quickly. It is a simple product that works well.

Can't complain have tried the Hylamide one which is more hydrating but for me is less plumping.

Amazing hydration!!! - 10-07-2018 by

I have combination skin that gets oily in the t-zone but pretty dry around my cheeks and chin area. I was looking for a product that made my skin feel moisturised and hydrated but without the oily greasy look. This does just that!! My skin feels amazing with it and makeup goes on amazingly. Definitely recommend!!

Great value for money - 10-07-2018 by

This is the most affordable HA serum I have ever used, and I think it is great value for money. It has a light texture (a little sticky but not more than other products), goes on well and absorbs fast and it helps keep the skin hydrated but it's not the most hydrating that I've tried. Since it has gotten an little chilly I've has quite dry cheeks so I bought this based on a friend's recommendation, it has worked without causing breakouts in my oily t zone. Although I prefer other serums I would buy it again because honestly it's very good for the price you pay.

Such a good product - 10-07-2018 by

This product is not only fantastic at moisturizing my oily skin without making it break out but is incredibly inexpensive. Another massive win in my books is the fact that it's vegan!!!

Amazing! - 10-07-2018 by

I have sensitive and dry skin and this hyaluronic acid is incredible. It makes me skin so hydrated and moisturised without making my skin greasy at all. It works perfectly to layer with other serums and I use it day and night and have seen incredible results. It has really evened out my skin tone as well. I would definitely recommend this to everyone!

Staple in my regime - 09-07-2018 by

I have become hooked on the ordinary range and their affordable products. I use the HA every day and night and it has become a staple in my regime. I have oily/combination skin and this helps to provide ultra light hydration during summer, while keeping away any dry flakes during winter.
When I first started using it (and still every now and then after using multiple bottles) I found it to be a bit too sticky. I would recommend using it on a damp face, or using it with a tiny drop of water. Sometimes I also add a drop to this to my usual moisturiser as opposed to applying in different steps.

Great deal - 08-07-2018 by

I used to use hacci (a Japanese beauty brand) to hydrate my skin. This year I find the ordinary, super cheap and, importantly, it works.

Lightweight and hydrating - 06-07-2018 by

This helped hydrate and soothe my sensitive dehydrated skin while absorbing quickly and feeling lightweight. Perfect for wearing under makeup and to help reduce dry patches.

Amazing! - 04-07-2018 by

I recently added this to my morning routine and omg. I usually get really dry, flakey patches in winter but nothing whatsoever for the first time in 6 years.

Very hydrating - 04-07-2018 by

This is a fantastic product for ALL skin types. Especially for dry skin because it makes the skin so supple and smooth because it is so hydrating. This would also work on oily skin to control oil by adding hydration hence preventing the skin from producing oil. Highly recommend

So much hydration - 04-07-2018 by

I have dull skin which is dry and often flakes, but also produces a lot of oil in the t-zone. I started using this product in the morning and evening before moisturising (and especially after doing any kind of mask) and I feel that it has made a huge difference to my skin! My skin doesn't have dry patches anymore, and my skin feels more plump and hydrated. I love it and have repurchased twice already. The packaging is really nice too, and I quite like using the dropper bottles.

WOW! - 04-07-2018 by

I have dry and break out prone skin and this has changed the skincare game for me. It is so so hydrating but also ridiculously moisturising. I can't believe how effective this product is, let alone at such a cheap price. I love this so much because it does exactly what it says! I would really recommend this!

Lovely - 04-07-2018 by

Absorbed by my skin easily and minimises lines pretty quickly

I have a new neck!! :) - 04-07-2018 by

I didn’t have enough money to buy my usual serums so I thought I would try this brand. I have always hated my neck, the lines are soo deep & form almost a criss cross pattern. It’s really aging. I tried a drop of this on my neck & face day & night. The criss cross lines on my neck have pretty much disappeared, now I just have the normal sideways lines. My face didn’t have a huge change, but it’s already in good condition. I would definitely recommend this, especially for the neck.

Great at helping your skin absorb moisture - 02-07-2018 by

I have freckled, fair, sensitive skin which is combination.
Mix this with everything you put on your face! I am 29 and started to notice that my skin holds less moisture.

Its great in my mix of moisturiser and rosehip oil I use daily.
Especially good at get your skin to absorb after a scrub once or twice weekly.

I even advise adding to moisture masks.

Wonderful - 02-07-2018 by

I love this product, it helps retain moisture on face. I have been using throughout winter and usually my face breaks out with the cold change and use of the fire place. This product has really helped lock that extra moisture into my skin. LOVE LOVE LOVE

I LOVE this product, but beware - it's no good under makeup - 02-07-2018 by

This is one of the few products I have tried that has given me good results right away and consistently. It makes my skin appear so much more plump and hydrated than anything else I use. I love that it is incredibly versatile and can be used under or mixed into moisturizers and under sheet masks, I have also used it on my hands mixed with hand cream and a little bit layered under lip balm/lip masks and the results have been noticeable every time. I usually mix it in my hand with moisturizer or night cream and apply a sleeping pack over the top to lock it in and I always wake up to hydrated skin! At this price point it's an absolute winner.

But sadly, there are downsides. It has a sticky finish, and it causes my foundation to pill up really badly. I really wish I could use this on my face during the day but I have to restrict myself to using it at night and on my days off when I'm not wearing facial makeup. The texture of it also makes it a little resistant to being mixed with other products - it's workable, but it could be less of a pain.

Hot tip: HA holds many times its own weight in water, so I find applying it to damp skin gives the best results!

Great value HA - 02-07-2018 by

I didn't find this HA as tacky as other reviewers, but it definitely needs a min to soak in. Didn't make my foundation ball up and overall was great value to integrate into my serum routine. You only need one drop for the full face as it spreads well.

Great product and amazing value! - 02-07-2018 by

I have normal to dry skin and was looking for something to help keep my skin more hydrated during winter. This product is so easy to apply and does not require a large amount of product as it spreads quite nicely. For the price I found I’d product to be well worth it, I use morning and night before moisturiser and have found my skin to me much more plump and supple. I love the results.

Good product - 02-07-2018 by

This serum does as much as you can expect a hydrating serum to do. It's probably not going to solve all your problems. So if you need a serum with hydrating qualities this is a good choice, and dirt cheap. I have moved on to Korean products and use a serum similar to this but in a bigger bottle so I don't have to repurchase so frequently. Would recommend.

Wow serum - 28-06-2018 by

I'm 45 of Asian genes, I don't have wrinkles as such, but my skin started to have pigmentation. I used this product every other day - alternating with my AlphaH liquid gold and so far so good. I don't have any breakouts. my skin absorbs the product quite well and it doesn't have sticky residue or make it oily. Will keep trying and monitor results closely.

On my second bottle.. - 28-06-2018 by

I have gone through two bottles of this now and even though I was skeptical at first, I find this great as a hydrator when I use it over my spritz toner. I found the solution too sticky and thick on its own, and didn't do much for my skin, but now when I apply it over my toner, I only need a small drop to cover my whole face and find the product much more effective. After applying this I use the marula oil mixed with my moisturiser and my skin looks great in the morning.

Love this serum - 27-06-2018 by

I am new to The Ordinary range and use this serum after cleansing and toning at night. I only need a few drops for my entire face and I find that my skin feels SO smooth and hydrated in the morning. I would recommend using this product at night because after applying I find that it leaves a slight sticky residue, so I have to wait at least 10 minutes before applying other creams. However that doesn't really bother me because the results speak for themselves. Will definitely be repurchasing!

better than higher priced brands - 27-06-2018 by

I have incredibly dry skin, and this has made a huge difference. it wears incredibly well under makeup, and doesn't leave a sticky feeling that I've noticed with other brands.

Plump it up - 27-06-2018 by

Love love love this product! It truly does make your skin fill with moisture and I have always had dry skin and always wanted to try this product but it can be so expensive, thats till I found The Ordinary, they just know what their doing and do it well and adorably which makes me very happy and my skin very soft and bouncy. I can see that this can be heavy for some skin types but it can be mixed in with other creams etc so I feel this can be adapted to fit in with more skin types and routines.

Hydration in a bottle! - 27-06-2018 by

Wow, no wonder why this has so many amazing reviews! Honestly, this serum has changed my skin! I have normal/dry skin so it is loving all this hydration!! I just repurchased two more bottles as I know how quickly it sells out.

10/10 would repurchase! - 25-06-2018 by

Ever since I started using this prior to my regular moisturizing cream I've noticed my skin's overall complexion improving. It definitely makes my skin feel more hydrated, nourished and glowy!

I love using this under makeup before moisturizer as well for more radiant-looking skin. My skin just drinks this up and it doesn't leave any unpleasant residue after application, it just feels very lightweight and not sticky at all. I highly recommend this if you're looking for an extra boost of hydration!

Very nice simple product - 25-06-2018 by

The ordinary has amazing products that allow customization of skin care rituals at an amazing price, with products that aren’t tested on animals and no pseudo science claims. This is a simple product that provides hydration without any unnecessary and expensive additives. A great product, a little bit of evidence to support its use and at a very affordable price.

Great for moisturising!! - 25-06-2018 by

This product makes my skin feel so plump and hydrated! I apply under makeup and it makes my base go on a lot smoother also! Although my skin does look a little oily at the end of the day

Sticky and thick but thins after application - 25-06-2018 by

This is the first product from The Ordinary that Ive tried. Stumbled upon the brand and thought I'd give it a go as it is a great price! My first impression was that it is so thick and gluggy! The liquid is kinda slimey too so it takes practice not to get all messy especially around the rim of the bottle. Surprisingly after the product touches my skin it dries up quite quickly and I noticed a more dewy look. As I have dry skin and I am in my 40's, I do need to add on an emollient on top for extra moisture. Otherwise it is a good product and I'm happy to finish using it. I'll try the Matrixyl 10% + HA next.

On my 5th bottle and recommended to lots of friends - 25-06-2018 by

I love this stuff. It absorbs really quickly, and you dont need a lot. So the 30ml lasts quite a few months. I use this every second day at minimum before moisturiser. I was using a much more expensive brand and cannot tell any difference. The Ordinary is such a great no fuss brand and have loved everything they have made. I really recommend this.

My favorite! - 25-06-2018 by

Absolutely love this product, it's become a staple.
It has a very smooth texture, it's not messy to use and you only need a tiny bit to cover your whole face

Great for dry skin! - 21-06-2018 by

I bought this product because my skin is fairly sensitive and dry. It worked really well, went on to my skin nicely and a little bit goes a long way! I have read a lot of positive reviews about The Ordinary skincare brand so I was very excited to try this and several of their other products. The only reason why I gave this 4 stars and not 5 is because I found it left my skin feeling hydrated but it didn't mix well with my other moisturisers and makeup. I find I have to leave it on for 15 mins before putting other products on top. But this is a really great product overall and would highly recommend!

Not a good product - 21-06-2018 by

I bought this to help plump and hydrate my sensitive combo/dry skin, that is prone to breakouts with mild rosacea.
It feels lovely when first applied however shortly after it always ended up stinging my skin. Instead of hydrating, I found it left my skin dry and tight feeling.
After a few weeks of using I noticed it had caused small white bumps all over my skin (and this has happened before with other products from The Ordinary).
This did absolutely nothing for my skin, instead made it worse.
I do not recommend.

Great for healing the skin - 21-06-2018 by

I used this when my skin was constantly breaking out and it made my skin more plump. When I would apply at night, I would wake up and my blemishes were visibly reduced and looked like they were healing more than when I hadn't used this product (I was picking at them).

Unremarkable serum - 20-06-2018 by

I managed to get through the whole bottle of this but I'm honestly not sure it did anything at all. I didn't notice any of the 'plumping' that other reviews have mentioned, and it didn't seem to do much at all for hydration. I used it during summertime, layering in between a hydrating mist. The texture is quite sticky - if I applied it onto dry skin it was hard to spread without using almost a full pipette, and even with the mist, it dried to a tacky finish. I've tried using it in dryer winter weather and it's actually very dehydrating - if there's no humidity in the air, the hyaluronic acid pulls moisture from your skin and dries it out.

It's not expensive so not a big deal to experiment with it. I've now moved on to better-quality Japanese hyaluronic acid lotions.

EXCELLENT - 19-06-2018 by

This product really leaves the skin feeling lush and hydrated after applying and really works well with The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA!!!!
It basic but I asked with quality!
It can lave the skin feeling a little sticky but when left to soak in it completely applies flawlessly, it also adds a natural glow to the skin and who doesn't want that!

Not for me :( - 19-06-2018 by

Bought this hoping I could boost or retain my skin’s moisture throughout the day but to what I suspect it made my skin even drier than it was before. Hyaluronic acid acts as a humectant that draws moisture from its environment therefore being from a country that is quite cold and dry, this serum does not do its job too well. And yes I have tried using a facial mist and it does absolutely nothing but if your from a more tropical area this work probably work a lot better

Great Product - 19-06-2018 by

Very good value for money. I have dry skin and this keeps it moisturised under make-up. I've used it in the summer and in the winter. The glass bottle and dropper dispenser keeps it fuss free and easy to use.

Great Product for Price, However... - 18-06-2018 by

Great cost price for a hyaluronic acid - there is not another comparably cheap hyaluronic acid on the market that I enjoy. However, you do get what you pay for. This is a very gooey, wet textured hyaluronic acid that does do a good job hydrating the skin. However, I very much prefer the other Deciem hyaluronic acids (Hylamide, Niod) because the texture and formula is noticeably superior. Don't get me wrong, this does a good job at holding moisture in the skin, so if cost is a priority, please purchase this! If you need a deeper hydration, that goes into the skin quicker, maybe try the other serums?

Brilliant product - 16-06-2018 by

I love this serum, its the perfect AM and PM product. I admit, I don't use this as much as I should (every day!) but I remember to use it when my skin is looking a little dull and dry. I use it AM and PM, and by the second day, it's back to it's normal looking self! Couldn't recommend it more!

A big drink of water for your face - 14-06-2018 by

This is the hydrator that every one needs in their life. Great for all skin types even oily, it's nice and light weight leaving the skin nice and smooth and plump

Plumping and hydrating dehydrated skin - 13-06-2018 by

I put this on my face when it’s still damp from cleansing, only need the tiniest drop and the difference is incredible. Using it in the morning and evening Transformed my dry, dull skin into a plump and moisturized glow! Also great for dry hair too!

Nourishing and hydrating - 13-06-2018 by

I absolutely love this product. I have combination skin and this is great to hydrate my skin without leaving it oily at all. I love adding a few drops of this hyaluronic acid to a sheet mask for extra hydration. This product does exactly what it says and at this price, I would definitely recommend it!

My skincare staple! - 13-06-2018 by

This has been my day and night product for over a year now and I will continue to repurchase. My skin feel hydrated but not greasy after use and I have combination skin that is more on the dry side during Winter. I recommend this product to all my friends and as a beauty therapist would recommend it to clients as well

Made dry skin even DRIER - 13-06-2018 by

I thought this was supposed to hydrate?! It makes my skin so dry and tight....will no purchase again....confused!

Very Afforable Hydration! - 13-06-2018 by

I decided to recently try this product for the first time after reading great reviews about it..and I am so glad I did! It instantly made my skin look and feel super hydrated and made it look plump and glowy. It easily applies and I have noticed a difference in my skin since using it! It is also super affordable! I will continue to re-purchase.

Hydrating boost - 12-06-2018 by

I bought this as I have dry to normal skin and is always in need of a hydrating boost. I mist my face before applying this watery serum. Unfortunately it does leave a bit of a tacky finish which can annoy some however I usually follow with a moisturiser and there are no problems. I have re-purchased this multiple times now however will probably try other HA products.

Not quite right for acne prone skin - 11-06-2018 by

I’ve tried a lot of TO products over the last year or 2. This is one of the first things I purchased along with the previous Niacinamide formula. I didn’t really notice any extra hydration, even if I applied straight after a shower when my skin was still damp and then layered with moisturiser. It dried my skin out over time and caused a bumpy texture to my forehead and cheeks. Took a look at the ingredients and it has hydrogenated castor oil. This I know breaks me out so I will avoid anything with this in it from now on. if You live in Melbourne with dry summers and dry winters than this may not work for you. HA is a molecule that draws in water to your skin so if there is no humidity then it will start drawing the moisture away from skin. Thus giving you DRY Sahara skin lol

AMAZING - 06-06-2018 by

Absolutely love this product - My dry skin has literally vanished!
It has a very smooth texture, it's not messy to use and you only need a tiny bit to cover your whole face. Leaves your skin looking fresh and dewy.

Did not work for me - 05-06-2018 by

I use this before my moisturiser and oil but it dried my face out and made my face feel tight. I have oily/combo skin but have never been this dry before.

Changing mind a bit but still love! - 04-06-2018 by

Skin type: dry, reactive, acne prone + scarring, redness

I still love this but since using lower HA molecules, I've come to realise it's a lot more superficial plumping over hydration. This is a reason I bought it though.

For the price is worth it. I've had acne in the past and have been left with pitted scarring. I definitely think this helps to "fill" them in immediately! This is the reason I will keep using it!

And the hydration is definitely cumulative. Dries quick & perfect for under foundation.

Overall it hasn't broken me out or had any negatives. I think it does what it says- but that the HA Hylamide upgrade is far more hydrating. But I still use both. Would recommend to others!

Love how my skin feels - 04-06-2018 by

I love how soft this makes my skin feel. My mid 40's skin is starting to look a bit dull but this definitely helps with moisturising and glow. However, it is not like a cream so there is no heaviness. Love it.

It didn't work for me - 01-06-2018 by

I have used about half a bottle of this product and I am sad to say, it didn't agree with my skin. It left it looking very dull and seemed to open my pores up further. I would say I have combination to dry skin. I have continued to use other Ordinary products since discontinuing this one and my skin is now much better, It is more radiant and feels and looks more hydrated now that I have stopped. I am not sure what it is about my skin that disagreed with it.

Affordable and feels great on skin - unfortunately breaks me out. - 30-05-2018 by

I really wanted to love this product as it's so affordable, but unfortunately every time I use it I get pimples without fail. I've tried taking a break and using it again after a couple of days more than once and it doesn't help so I know it's definitely this product, especially as I rarely breakout. Maybe there is something in it that my skin disagrees with.
Apart from that, it's a nice product. Very affordable and a nice texture - gel like and not too sticky, although it does make your skin quite shiny after use so best used at night or with makeup over the top, not on a no makeup day. Unfortunately I didn't use for long enough to tell if it added moisture to my skin.

FIXED MY DRY SKIN - 30-05-2018 by

This product is amazing. I use to have severely dry skin, after using this product my skin has improved greatly. I have already gone through three bottles and I use this along side the ordinary natural moisturising factors. This product is great value for money and I will continue to repurchase.

Great value for money - 23-05-2018 by

This is a solid hyaluronic acid product. I really like this, it definitely keeps my skin moisturised, soft and bouncy. Only downside is that is has a bit of a sticky and shiny finish and can take a bit of time to sink in. However, I do find using an essence or hydrating spray first and then applying this makes a huge difference and helps it to absorb better. I have repurchased this a couple of times and will continue to do so as it is a good quality product that does what it says and is a very affordable price.

Excellent product. Very hydrating. - 22-05-2018 by

I have oily/combination skin and have been using this for a couple of weeks. I have noticed a difference in my skin as it feels and looks softer and more hydrated. A couple of people have commented on how good my skin is looking and have told them to try it. A great product and would highly recommend all skin types to try it,

Ok product - 20-05-2018 by

I don’t mind this but I don’t love it. It does the job and helps skin feel moisturised but the tackiness and pilling factor is a bit annoying. It would be fine if I had lots of time to get ready in the morning but I don’t. Having to wait too long between layers of skincare and applying makeup isn’t always an option so I sometimes have to skip this. The price is amazing but I just need to bite the bullet and pay more for a product that suits my needs.

Great texture - 18-05-2018 by

I find it a bit hard to tell if this is working wonders, since I'm changing up my routine into the drier months and layering more products than normal (too impatient to test products in a vacuum when I'm getting dry). However I love the texture and feeling of this serum right after cleansing, and how it dries a little tight. It gives a really great shiny glow and it improves my skin for makeup, and seeing all these reviews I assume it has to be doing something and that HA is something I need to keep using. Noticed a bit of pilling when layering other products but this seems to be common with TO seeing other reviews (also have the natural moisturising factors) and I probably need to be patient with layering. At this price point I will probably continue to purchase.

Miracle worker - 18-05-2018 by

I am on medication that has dry skin as a side effect, and this has cleared it right up. Life saver!

My favourite skincare product - 16-05-2018 by

I absolutely love this HA! I've gone through a few bottles and will happily replace it (when it gets restocked!). I really did notice a difference in my skin after using this, it looks healthier, plumper and softer, and now I notice a difference when I don't use it (when my bottle runs out and Adore is out of stock!).

Good Serum - 16-05-2018 by

I really like the formulation of this serum as it has a tightening effect once applied. You do need to apply it quite fast and it does dry down tacky but it feels amazing once a moisturiser is applied. I have noticed more hydration from using this product

The building block of the modern skincare routine - 15-05-2018 by

Skin Type: Dehydrated/Occasional Blemishes/Unsensitised Age: 26 Skin Tone: Fair/Caucasian

The Ordinary really did shake up the skincare market. Like everything in the range, this product makes you question the price of most skincare brands who offer something of similar or even (God forbid) lesser quality for up to 6 times the price?

As everyone who has been enamoured with the DECIEM philosophy and willingness to push the boundaries of the skincare world, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 was on the first shopping list.

I was previously using another brand's hydrating serum, lightweight and lovely but valued at $89 AU! And then this product comes along with no 'extract of random herb' but the addition of the anti-inflammatory B5? Sold purely on the name.

Now the product is a slippery dream on the skin. One thing that The Ordinary does which is a blessing (but learning curve) is because it avoids a lot of fillers for aesthetic purposes the feeling on the skin does have a slightly sticky texture and the formula is quite viscous (a common theme in the humectant formulae of DECIEM's range). But it quickly absorbs and leaves the skin refreshed. I have used this in both day and night before my moisturiser and it is a perfect companion.

NOTE:In drier climates I recommend using this directly after your shower while it is steamy. If not spray some water on the face directly after application and let it settle. Humid climates suit humectant products due to the moisture content in the air. If not it can just draw the water from the lower levels of the skin to the surface...not ideal.

Cabinet staple - 14-05-2018 by

It's like giving your face a drink of water. Your skin will thank you.

Fantastic! - 14-05-2018 by

I bet the high-end, high-cost skin care companies rue the day The Ordinary burst onto the scene! Why spend $100+ for a tiny bottle of hyaluronic acid when this stuff is simply the BEST?!

As someone with both oily but dehydrated skin, I could never slather on moisturisers without clogging my pores and causing an oil slick. This serum I could bathe in, and yet never suffer congestion or zits from it. For the first time, I feel like my skin is getting the moisture that it actually needs. Thank you, The Ordinary!

So afforable and an amazing hydrator - 12-05-2018 by

Smooth and silky, non fragrant. Great hydrator and wonderful under makeup

I love Hyaluronic Acid. - 11-05-2018 by

I've got combination skin that is currently very dry due to a benzoyl peroxide treatment, but this product still works a treat to make my skin soft and bouncy. I feel like it really boosts my hydration beneath the surface, so while I still have some dryness from the benzoyl my face looks glowy. I mainly use this product at night, and will apply a decent layer all over. I even use it on my lips and I swear it makes them fuller through being more hydrated. Love it.

Love it! - 08-05-2018 by

I absolutely adore this product - my skin feels instantly hydrated and supple. Will purchase again.

way too good - 08-05-2018 by

I have always been disappointed everytime I try a new product that would at least do something to my eczema prone face. I have tried the rosehip oil from the same brand, but it did not work on me. So I decided to try on Hyaluronic acid as I have heard alot about it having to keep your face moist. And to my surprise, it did not just keep my face moist, my eczema areas are also recovering like never before. I got to know about hyaluronic acid, when I bought the TOO FACED BORN THIS WAY foundation, and always felt my eczema calms down when i apply the foundation, so I looked up for their key ingredients and yes, thats when I suspected that maybe this acid is doing the magic.

hydrating - 08-05-2018 by

I've shelled out pretty penny for Hyaluronic acid before and since this one was way more affordable, I decided to try it. Its been about a week since. Works pretty well, though it could work better with a good moisturizer after. Pat on skin, it gets absorbed very easily after a while. I have oily skin and I do still wake with a layer of oil on my face. Hope it will get better with time.

Decently priced and worthwhile - 08-05-2018 by

After continuous use, it has left my skin looking plump and hydrated! I apply after cleansing and toning, and use both layering and mixing with other serums techniques in my routine. Doesn't break the bank and has high strength ingredients. Love!

So so worth it - 08-05-2018 by

I bought this product because everytime I applied foundation, my nose looked super flakey and this product made my skin look flawless. No more flaky skin after foundation. Such a life changing product, will definitely repurchase this ! Amazing!

OBSESSED - 08-05-2018 by

It's hydration in a bottle. Brought this about 2 weeks ago and I already want to buy another bottle for back up! I love the texture and absorbecy, leaves a tacky feel but quicklygoes away I love it!

Amazing - 08-05-2018 by

This does wonders for my dry skin and you only need a little bit to cover the whole face!

Does what it says it does! - 08-05-2018 by

I'm 20 years old, have dry-normal skin and prone to breakouts/congestion. This product does exactly what it says it does! You can use it both morning and night, as it looks fresh and glowy under your moisturiser and makeup in the morning, and gives a boost of hydration at night. I started off only using 2 small drops, as directed, but now use 4 large drops and it still fully absorbs within about 15 seconds. In love :)

Game changer - 08-05-2018 by

I'd been using a $100+ 'top name' B5 serum and was reluctant to change as I'd put this serum down to being the cure to the awful psoriasis on my face that had plagued me for years.
Enter this serum. Not only is my psoriasis still non existent, my skin is more moisturised and the texture more refined. At a fraction of the cost.
Pretty sure I'm up to my 6th or so bottle and will never stop. Sits well under make up too.

Great! But.... - 08-05-2018 by

I use this product in conjunction with the Vitamin C Suspension serum and The Buffet and I must say, they are GREAT products. However, after 7 days of using the three products at night (post-cleansing + every 3rd night exfoliating), I woke up one morning with random, very noticeable, extra black heads. These blackheads looked different to the ones I normally get and were very easy to extract --after speaking to my dermatologist, she said that this is my skins reaction to a new regime and is completely normal and not to worry.

After 5 weeks of my skin cells rejuvenating and getting used to the new products, I have visibly softer and healthier skin. Definitely recommend!

Great affordable product that works - 08-05-2018 by

I started using this product about six months ago and I believe it has helped with my patchy dry skin. I always add moisturiser once it has absorbed (Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF30+, you have to make sure you wear an SPF cream with these types of products) and I have noticed that when I apply my foundation serum it doesn't seem to 'ball up' on my face anymore.

Give it a shot, it's so cheap!

Love this! - 07-05-2018 by

I use it every morning and night before moisturiser, and love it - my skin has definitely improved since using this. Highly recommend!

LOVE - 07-05-2018 by

Amazing product. I prefer it over the more expensive one by niod.

Ridiculously good, and phenomenal at the price - 30-04-2018 by

Great product. As good, if not better than the more expensive brands.
Use it every morning, and have bought several bottles in succession - which is the best recommendation I can give.

Haven't really noticed a difference but would buy again - 29-04-2018 by

I definitely didn't notice anything bad about this product and I would probably buy again and keep using it. That being said, I'm not sure if I've actually noticed a difference with my skin at all. I don't really have dry skin in the first place so perhaps people with dry skin may benefit from this more.

Believe the hype - 29-04-2018 by

I've used a few other The Ordinary products with varying results but this one definitely lived up to the hype for me. I was going through a bout of unusually dry patches of skin on my face, probably due to the approaching winter, and my usual moisturising routine was not cutting it. I've been using this every morning (and occasionally at night) under my moisturiser/SPF and it has really helped hydrate my skin without making it feel too oily. It absorbs quite quickly and is great for layering under other products. And at that price point, it's a lot easier to give it a go (or restock regularly).

Transformation! - 29-04-2018 by

This stuff is insanely exciting. For the first few days I used it I noticed light peeling around the t-zone, which then led to smooth, glowing and balanced skin. Even my lips are looking plumper as the area surrounding them is smoother and fuller!!! Frown lines and fine lines are disappearing before my eyes and my overall complexion is much less red and less irritable! Will never be without this product, has completely calmed and toned my skin. Far less oily but still completely moisturised. Amazing!

ExtraORDINARY! - 29-04-2018 by

After being told by a few beauticians that my skin was very dehydrated and knowing full well that I hadn’t had a decent skincare routine in years, I was just about ready to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive ‘top of line’ skincare products, when I came across The Ordinary. And how grateful I am that I did! Not only is the brand ridiculously affordable, it instantly (and I’m not exaggerating) made my skin feel hydrated & amazing. I will be spreading the word!!

Must have for your skin care routine! - 29-04-2018 by

My skin has been horribly dry and dehydrated lately so I’ve been doing a big read on skincare and came across a page boosting about this product! Since using it I’ve definitely seen a big improvement and my skin feels much more baby smooth and glowing.

Great for dry skin - 19-04-2018 by

I have really dry skin and have been layering this serum under my moisturiser day and night. It absorbs into my skin really nicely and doesn’t leave a tacky or sticky residue. It has definitely appeared my skin, I no longer have skin so dry that it gets flakey. I am also prone to eczema, but I haven’t had any flares ups whilst using this serum. Will be repurchasing.

Hydrating serum - 19-04-2018 by

I really enjoy this product. It doesn't irritate my combination sensitive skin, and I can use it morning and night for softer, smoother skin. It's perfect for the winter months, and although my skin can appear oily, that isn't the case with this product even in summer. It gives a hydrated feeling, and I'll definitely repurchase when I finish this bottle.

Amazing!! - 17-04-2018 by

I use this product morning and night as my first product after cleansing. In conjunction with The Ordinary 100% squalane in the morning and either granactive retinoid 2% OR lactic acid 5% followed by 100% squalane in the afternoon by skin has never been more amazing! It’s bright, plump, smooth and hydrated!! Highly recommend doing your research and finding a regime from The Ordinary!
