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.

All day - 15-01-2019 by

I found it too oily for my skin so I gave to my mum and she absolutely loves it

Lightweight and not sticky - 15-01-2019 by

This serum truly hydrates without being heavy. It feels tacky once applied but quickly absorbs so a great one for layering and use under makeup.

Immediate results - 15-01-2019 by

Because my skin is combination, I didn’t really think it could be dehydrated - but I got a facial recently and was told it was so decided to give this product a go given the low price. I noticed my skin looked and felt more plump (and hydrated) and only a few uses. I have been using morning and night because it is so easy to incorporate into my routine and I’m so pleased with the results.

Great staple - 15-01-2019 by

I always come back to this product. Keeps my skin in check - great hydration, great to use with other The Ordinary products, helps keep skin smooth and refined

Overall - not bad. - 15-01-2019 by

I've given this product 4 stars due to the price, minimal packaging and quality. It loses a star due to the sticky feel it leaves on your skin- you would ideally like for it to dry first before applying any of your other creams, especially in the morning when your in a rush.
If you work in an office where the aircon is blaring constantly and drying on the skin, this is a must to try.

i have noticed I don't have any more dry patches on my skin, so hopefully it has been working!

needling serum - 15-01-2019 by

i bought this specifically to use with my derma roller and it did just that! it soothed my skin as the roller also did its magic and they are a great combination together!

Great for combining with Vitamin C - 14-01-2019 by

I trust The Ordinary and use many of their products. When I recently splurged on a VERY expensive Vitamin C E Ferulic serum I read that I should combine it with B5 to maximise its effects

Wasn't interested in spending heaps of money on an equally expensive B5 product, and I wanted something which would blend and buffer well with the Vitamin C. I already have TO Hyaluronic Acid serum which is one of my favourite products. This product is just as nice and with the added bonus of B5 it helps hydrate my skin very nicely

Great value for money - 14-01-2019 by

This wasn't a 'miracle product' or anything, but it made my skin feel equally as nice as very expensive serums from brands such as Estee Lauder etc. For this reason I would 100% recommend purely based on the amazing value for money. Also, it has lasted me over 3 months and I use it almost every day.

It's pretty good. - 11-01-2019 by

This is the first hyaluronic acid serum that I've tried so I have nothing to compare it to. I use this on my dry skin in the mornings before moisturiser. It sinks in and dries down really fast and can leave my skin feeling a little tight straight away and even though it doesn't feel amazing on application I do believe it helps to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day under my makeup. Prior to using this I had some stubborn dry patches that have since disappeared, however I can't be sure if that was from this product alone or the other The ordinary products that I also started using at the same time. You can't argue with the price with this product. I simply cannot afford to spend $50 or more on one item of skincare so this brand has been a life saver to me. I think once this bottle runs out I might try the marine HA, just to see which one I prefer. Overall, I do recommend this product, especially at such an incredible price point.

Cant live without - 10-01-2019 by

I love this product, my very dry skin cannot live without it. Great value as well worth a try.

Hydration Salvation - 10-01-2019 by

I learnt long ago, just because my skin is oily doesn't mean it can't be dehydrated. I am absolutely loving this, I pop it on Morning and Night - it has a slight stick to it but quickly absorbs. If you haven't already googled the benefits of hyaluronic acid, get onto it. This is for EVERY skin type.

Fave hydrating serum - 09-01-2019 by

Can't get enough of this super hydrating serum. I use morning and night after cleansing and my skin soaks it up straight away. Left feeling hydrated and glowy. Great treatment if your skin is a bit dry or you've been in the sun.

It's not that great for dry skin - 09-01-2019 by

After reading plenty of great reviews I gave it a whirl whist it was in stock and thought it would check the texture of my skin. I love the feeling when it's first applied but it doesn't last more than a couple of minutes. It doesn't keep really dry skin hydrating, the oils in the range are still much more sufficient at this and I will stick to the Marula oil in my routine.

My skin has never felt this soft! - 08-01-2019 by

I use this in conjunction with the Lactic Acid 10% + HA and my skin has never felt better,
I have only been using it for just 5 days and you can see and feel such a significant difference.
I am hooked, so is my boyfriend and now I've got my mother on it!

Love it! - 08-01-2019 by

I use this product after a shower before my tinted moisturiser or after Ive been outside for the day and it instantly hydrates and restores a healthy glow, highly recommend!

amazing serum - 06-01-2019 by

My favourite serum to use every morning and night! I can't get enough of it. I am going purchase one for my daughter as well. LOVE IT !!!

Holy Grail! - 05-01-2019 by

This has been the best purchase I've ever made for my skin. I was always interested in the eve lom serum but couldn't justify the price tag, and thought I'd give this a go instead. I have no regrets! If only it came in litre bottles!!! I smooth it on every morning and evening after using an essence and my dry skin soaks it up. Extremely soothing for eczema, sunburn and dry patches. I've already got three friends addicted as well!

the holy grail of serums - 05-01-2019 by

Makes my skin flawless, young and beautiful.

Affordable Hydrating Serum - 05-01-2019 by

I have normal to dry skin. I find that this serum hydrates my skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and not tight. I love the fact that it is so affordable compared to a lot of other hyaluronic acid serums.

Gets rid of dry patches - 03-01-2019 by

I have combination skin and always end up with a gross dry patch of skin after applying foundation but after using this I don't have that problem anymore. I apply it at night and it lasts for all of the next day. Didn't notice any weird smells.

amazing results! - 02-01-2019 by

My favourite serum to use every morning and night! helps moisturise my skin from the inside and helps prevent breakouts and overall my skin has improved greatly

Must Try - 02-01-2019 by

If you're in need for an affordable hydrating serum for all skin types, this one is a must try. It is light weight and sinks into the skin very quickly. Very good for layering underneath a moisturiser.

My skin really didn't take to this - 01-01-2019 by

I had high hopes for this HA serum but it really didn't give me any results and the smell was rather off putting.
I didn't look forward to using it due to the odd aroma and I found it too runny to be able to apply sparingly.

Lucky it was so cheap because I feel as though I have wasted my money.

Great for the price - 01-01-2019 by

Super hydrating fluid which blends well into the skin under my moisturizer.

Disappointing - 01-01-2019 by

I have oily/combination skin with dry under eye/cheek areas. I bought this to assist with overall hydration to complement my retinol regimen. I’m not sure it can have much of an impact because the pilling is so bad that I can only apply a small amount. Even if used the night before it is problematic the next morning. Overall not a big deal to try because it’s such an affordable product. I’ll use the remainder slowly but probably won’t repurchase.

Amazing, super affordable! - 31-12-2018 by

I use this every night, it leaves my skin feeling really soft and tight.
It’s helping to reduce my pores and fine lines around my mouth

Life saving! - 31-12-2018 by

I feel like the addition of this before oils/moisturisers has cured my eczema & greatly reduced my rosacea! My skin seems so much less red & I have not had a single eczema breakout since I started using it! My skin feels hydrated & actually looks it too. Really improved the way moisturisers & oils work, I don’t need to use as much & my skin seems to absorb them better.

Love this product! - 31-12-2018 by

I started using this along with a few other products from The Ordinary and absolutely love it. I have quite oily skin that worsens if not hydrated but I find a lot of moisturisers too heavy particularly under make up. I apply this product morning and night as a part of my skin care routine and it keeps my skin hydrated, works really well under make up and has helped improve the overall texture of my skin. Can’t recommend this product highly enough.

Great - 31-12-2018 by

This is my 2nd bottle of this product, it is definitely a staple of my night time skin care. I have found my skin is more hydrated since I have started using this product. I use at night because I don't like it under my makeup. It is a great product it just does not play nicely with my foundation. I would highly recommend this product. The price is fantastic for such a great product.

Very hydrating - 31-12-2018 by

I apply this serum in the morning to help keep my face hydrated during the day. It goes on very silky and feels lovely on the skin. Always apply moisturiser after as this serum is not too occlusive so it does not seal in moisture. The serum was really hydrating and helped to keep my face soft during the day. It does exactly what it said it would do! For extra effect, I usually apply this onto a damp face after cleansing to hold onto that extra water.

Great addition to my skin routine! - 29-12-2018 by

My partner and I both use this twice a day prior to moisturising with alpha h ultra hydration cream. It’s definitely working to combat my dry feeling skin, and my skin feels so supple and smooth in the mornings after using. It goes quickly in my household but it’s so affordable that it’s not a problem. I’ve not noticed any pilling under my foundation, but it can feel a bit drying after application so I’d recommend always following up with a good moisturiser once it has settled into the skin. Definitely an easy and affordable way to give your skin some extra TLC!

My daily go to! - 29-12-2018 by

I love this serum! I use it morning and night. I just purchased my 3rd bottle. I was using the Medik8 hydration B5 and I feel The Ordinary's version has done a lot more for my skin at a fraction of the price.

Can't Live Without It - 29-12-2018 by

I honestly don't want to think about what my skincare routine was like before I discovered The Ordinary but their products have saved my face. I love this serum and always use it with The Ordinary Buffet and my face absolutely GLOWS.

Excellent product - 27-12-2018 by

This oil surpasses any other i have used, its light non greasy & effective

Love it ! - 27-12-2018 by

A friend told me about this & it has had visible results reducing lines on my face

Finally an affordable HA - 27-12-2018 by

If you've been thinking about getting onto the HA bandwagon do it! My skin is super dry AND acne prone and this little miracle is exactly what it needed that I've been searching for for so long. DECIEM you bloody legends. ❤️

Left skin feeling drier - 26-12-2018 by

I prefer the Buffet to this serum. It leaves my skin feeling drier and also pills when layered with other serums. I have dehydrated skin, but don't see any benefits from this.

Feel super hydrated but it does get a bit flakey. - 26-12-2018 by

I feel really hydrated from this and it makes my skin glow. I would recommend this product, but it does get flakey on my skin sometimes. After reading another review here I've discovered the term is called 'product piling'. I'm going to do a bit more research about how to apply it better to prevent this from happening because I do enjoy using this product.

Nice product! - 26-12-2018 by

Lovely product! I noticed instant results in my skin the next morning. Skin was more plump and had a glow to it! I have really sensitive skin and my skin loved this!

Excellent hydration in a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly - 25-12-2018 by

I have been using this product for 1.5yrs and love the fact that it makes my skin so plump and absorbs within a minute. I apply twice daily after cleansing when my skin is still slightly damp. It plumps the lips too. I have used hyaluronic acid in products made by Neutrogena, but much prefer The Ordinary. I also like the fact that I know exactly what percentage of active ingredient is in the ordinary product, The Ordinary is one of the few companies that are so transparent regarding their ingredients. I am a doctor and I know hyaluronic acid has been proven to increase skin surface hydration. Highly recommend. I have combination skin and I am in my mid thirties.

Will continue to use - 25-12-2018 by

I've been using this for several months in the morning along with the zinc, salicylic acid and lactic acid at night and my very acne prone skin with big pores has never been more clear and smooth. My pores have shrunk hugely, very rarely get any pimples. Its hard for me to say which product has done what, but the result is so good I'm going to keep using them all.

So far, so good! - 24-12-2018 by

Bought this after hearing reviews from YouBeauty podcast. Wasn't expecting anything to happen straight away (as these things take time) but I have already seen some results. My fair skin (with redness and some scarring) appears clearer, brighter and more plump. The price is also very affordable. I like that you only need a few drops, so it should last awhile. The packaging is a classic design and the dropper make it easy to use. I am excited to see what happens in the future. Recommend it for the price!

Super hydrating - 24-12-2018 by

I do love this serum - I have dry, sensitive, and eczema prone skin. It gets your B vitamins into your skin and hydrates as well. Fantastic to use as a buffer serum with acids or retinoids if just starting out. It has had a massive impact on the hydration of my skin. The only reason I took a star off is that it is quite a viscous formula and can be prone to pilling, so be careful with application and don't use too much!

Lightweight and lovely! - 24-12-2018 by

Such a great serum! It’s so lightweight and doesn’t leave my already oily skin more oily. I love this serum and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin! Will definitely continue to buy.

Surprisingly good - 21-12-2018 by

Expect to see subtle results in just a few days. This serum is tightening and moisturising at the same time. My moisuturiser sits beautifully on top of it, and my skin has definitely improved since using.

Great addition to my skincare routine - 21-12-2018 by

Just finished my first bottle and definitely repurchasing ! Has helped my skin stay hydrated and plump, I just mix a few drops in with my moisturiser. The only thing is that sometimes it can leave a slightly tacky feeling depending on how much you use but it doesn't bother me too much

Don't like the feel of this product and didn't see much effect either - 21-12-2018 by

I have fair, sensitive combination skin. Was excited to try this after reading so much about the benefits of hyaluronic acid but I really didn't like its tacky, sticky texture and I can't say I noticed much effect on my skin. Would not repurchase.

Good price and effective - 20-12-2018 by

Easy serum to add into the am and pm routine. After a few days use my skin is more hydrated and healthy looking. Very happy with the results from a little bottle of this.

Great for the price - 20-12-2018 by

A little goes a long way, and nothing beats hyaluronic acid for hydration. I have very dry skin but no longer have flaky patches. For the price fo $12.90, you probably won't regret buying it.

Good cheap alternative - 20-12-2018 by

Bought to try instead of my normal high end b5. Not the most luxury feeling but definitely provides hydration and leaves skin feeling smooth. Just slightly sticky. Good for the price.

Love this product - 20-12-2018 by

Great product! Will definitely buy again.I have combination skin, and on summer i get oily on my tzone. This product really works. Absorbs on my skin and been seeing good changes on my skin. I don’t get too oily after using this product. Im on my 5th bottle. Will buy again.

Fantastic! - 19-12-2018 by

I use this every night after I apply the salicylic acid, retinol emulsion and my essence and it’s so incredibly hydrating! I sometimes get very dry, itchy skin from allergies and this product brings the hydration back as well as soothe and calm down my skin.

Very happy with the results - 19-12-2018 by

Fantastic product!! Instantly plumps & refines skin. I’m in my mid forties and suffer from skin dehydration so this product has been a miracle. Combine with the Buffet and your Favourite face cream for best results.

Love It! - 19-12-2018 by

Only recently did I start caring about my skincare routine so I was looking for something that was easy, relatively budget-friendly, but most importantly something that genuinely made my skin healthier. This ticks all of those boxes. I now have a simple skin routine mixed with a few other Ordinary products and my skin is looking healthy and fresh all the time. I LOVE THIS STUFF

Adds moisture to the skin - 19-12-2018 by

When I first purchased this collection, I was concerned that all the acid products would cause over-drying of my skin, but this solution sorts all of that out and I haven't had any dryness at all! Goes on smooth, absorbs well and no stickiness or oily sensation left behind.

Happy, hydrated skin - 18-12-2018 by

I find this helps my skin stays soft through the day, keeping my dry zones from getting itchy when I can't lather on the oils like I would at night. And it has been great keeping my acne prone areas calm.
I use two drops, spread quickly and lightly - over working it causes little flaky crumbs. DO NOT RUB IN!

Best Hyaluronic serum EVER! - 18-12-2018 by

I normally purchase an expensive version of Hyaluronic acid as my skin agrees with it. Purchased this because of the price now this is my go to morning serum. My dehydrated skin feels supple and my make up sits nicer and lasts longer during the day. Staple product in my morning skin care routine.

Disappointed - 18-12-2018 by

I really wanted to like this as I like the product concept, its price, the fact that it’s pure hydration and gentle for sensitive skin. I don’t mind that it is a bit sticky and tacky as it dries quickly when applied after cleansing and toning. However, it does not feel like it soaks into my skin but just stay as a film on my face. And the worst is it balls up when applied my moisturizers on top (I’ve tried 4 different moisturizers). Too disappointed and will be giving it away.

Affordable and Effective - 18-12-2018 by

My skin absolutely adores this product. It is absorbed so quickly, and leaves a nice finish. Although on dry skin it feels a bit sticky, spritzing my face with a mist prior, helps me to apply it evenly, using less product and avoids that tacky feeling. It is such a plus that the price is friendly on my pocket! Have purchased this atleast 4 times and will continue to :)

A must have stocking filler! - 18-12-2018 by

From the minute I tried this product I knew I was on to a winner. After just one day my skin was hydrated and didn't dry out during the day and after using it overnight my skin felt fresh and hydrated when I woke up in the morning. I can't wait to see how my skin feels after using this product under my moisturizer on a regular basis.

Love it! - 18-12-2018 by

I have only been using this for a couple of days but I have to say that I noticed a difference immediately in the texture and look of my skin which is dry, red and 51 years old and in need of help. I am definitely excited to keep using it and see what happens but if these past 2 days are anything to go by it should be a big improvement.

Hydrates Well - 17-12-2018 by

I have oily and dehydrated skin and this serum works well in helping my regulate my skin.

I use it post cleansing my skin and feel that it does add a bonus point of hydration to my skin without being overly heavy or greasy. I also feel like it helps subsequent products better absorb into my skin.

Would recommend those looking for a hydrating serum at a lower price point as there is more pricier alternatives that I must admit work better such as Medik8.

Yuck! - 17-12-2018 by

This product balls up on my skin, I don’t know if I’m doing it wrong? No matter how little or how much I use it balls up. I have combo skin.. wouldn’t recommend

My dry skin loves this! - 17-12-2018 by

I bought this because my dry skin needed an extra boost and at this price it was hard to go past. I feel instant relief from tightness and it makes my skin look plumper. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing! - 17-12-2018 by

This serum is incredible! I have had dry skin all my life, 36yrs! After using this for over a year now my skin is no longer dry at all! I love layering this serum with other The Ordinary products. I use this daily and will never stop!

Good addition to skin regime, yet not a necessity - 17-12-2018 by

This product feels lovely and cool when applied on skin. I believe it is good for people with dry or combination skin when used in conjunction with another facial moisturiser or serum. Additionally, it could be good for people with oily skin due to being lightweight. For the ones with a more normal and balanced skin type, this product is probably not a skincare necessity.

Top quality product with drug store price - 15-12-2018 by

My skin is oily combination with light set wrinkles. This product moisturises without leaving my skin feeling greasy, it is gorgeously lightweight and leaves my skin looking plump, youthful and glowing. You can not argue with the price, talk about value for money.

Good But Sticky - 15-12-2018 by

I found that even though it hydrated my skin very well and left it soft and plump, that it was very thick and sticky. I wouldn't suggest it during the day or in summer!! But besides that it's nice.

Best Hyaluronic acid ever! - 13-12-2018 by

Skin type: Large pores, oily to dry, non-sensitive

I had neglected my skincare routine for so long and after being frustrated at my dry and dull skin and also at myself for being lazy and neglecting it; I purchased this product amongst many other from the brand and it has changed my life!

It offers immediate results for hydration and plumpness and soothes the dried out skin both on the surface and underneath. I use this daily (usually night time) in my skincare routine now, sometimes twice a day (morning and night) if I've been dehydrated or I notice my skin is a bit dry.

Would 100% recommend this product! Are there better products that are similar to this?- probably yes and also 10x as expensive. For the price of the product to the results, I would choose this over any other brand.

Cult favorite - 13-12-2018 by

This is my favorite product of The Ordinary hydrating range. It is so incredibly rich and I can feel it hydrating my skin as soon as I put it on. I have combination, oily T-zone skin and was a bit worried this might have been too oily for me. However, when I wake up in the morning my skin is so nicely dewy and not oily. Other products make me glisten with oil in the mornings.. But not this one! Its consistency is a bit sticky and tacky when you first pop it on your face but it absorbs very well and after a few minutes my face is fine. My friends who have sensitive skin, use it and have had no issues with breakouts or reactions so I would say its gentle and friendly for sensitive skin. I love it!!!

Great for skin - 13-12-2018 by

I've got really sensitive skin that gets red really easily but this product really helped to moisturize and hydrate it without making me breakout at all. Its an oily liquid but it dries really quickly once applied to the skin. Would definitely recommend.

Purchasing again! - 13-12-2018 by

I bought this when my skin texture changed to combat dryness. After some bad experiences with other brands it was amazing to find something fast acting with no scent or residual texture that I could apply underneath my makeup to hydrate my skin and allow for better foundation application

Very ordinary - 13-12-2018 by

Maybe I have been spoilt with my usual medik8 B5 but thought I would try it for such a crazy price and yup sure enough it is awful. Leaves an awful film on my face that almost lathers up as it’s put on my face. It does not feel like it soaks into my skin but more dries on top and affects the application of makeup. Will be giving it away and will not trust any other products in this brand.

Amazing - 12-12-2018 by

I'm on my third bottle of this now. I really hadn't expected much more than nice hydration, but this makes my skin look truly amazing. I put it on at night and in the morning my skin glows, it's bouncy, silky soft, my cheeks are bright, and my face and neck look incredibly nourished. This works just as well as the Buffet for me, even though I realise Buffet has a lot more in it. For my 37 year old skin, this stuff is the star, no matter how simple the formulation might be. Am going to start using a little bit on my hands at night too.

Great hydration - 12-12-2018 by

Love this and have repurchased twice. So hydrating and light for my skin and just soaks in. Love the price as well of this excellent product.

Best thing ever! - 12-12-2018 by

I absolutely love this product! I have dry, blemish-prone skin with weird mixed textures and this serum helped me to get a smoother and more hydrated face in a matter of days.
I now can't go without hyaluronic acid on a daily basis. I'm in love

smooth and silky - 11-12-2018 by

A skin care essential - 11-12-2018 by

This is one of my favourite products from TO. It is well priced and ensures my skin receives adequate hydration. A little goes a long way, I only use a drop at a time, mixed with TO Buffet with Copper Peptides. Having used this for about a year now I have noticed the skin on my cheeks is plumper.

Incredible - 11-12-2018 by

I have very dry skin and this is just God’s gift to the earth. Not tacky at all, has an amazing consistency and the hydration of it lasts a good 12 hours, even more. I usually put it on after my shower at about 8pm, and then get up at 7 for work and my face is still soooo dewy! Highly recommend!!!

Love ittt!!! - 10-12-2018 by

Loving this serum! I use it in my morning routine when my dry skin needs a pick me up and it works a treat hydrating and smoothing my skin!

Love love love - 10-12-2018 by

Love The Ordinary. Where else can you get a hyaluronic acid serum for $12?! I’m on my third bottle and will keep buying it. I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in skin hydration since using this, and it makes my moisturiser go further.

So good - 10-12-2018 by

I love this and won’t be without it.
It’s a lightweight that absorbs and layers perfectly with other serums and also under foundation. It hydrates well and doesn’t pill. It’s cheap and amazing!
I have combo dry 43 yr old skin.

Love it! - 10-12-2018 by

I love this product. I ran out about a month ago and didn't get around to re-ordering until 1 week ago. I definitely noticed the difference in my skin texture when I wasn't using it. It absorbs quickly and I it fits into my skincare regime easily. My skin looks so much more hydrated!

Very moisturising - 08-12-2018 by

This product is amazing and moisturises from the inside out. In the mornings my skin feels a lot more plump and fresh. definitely recommend for all skin types as everyone can do with more moisture

Light, and hydrating., - 08-12-2018 by

I have oily skin acne prone skin, so I find it hard to find the balance between helping reduce acne, and not hydrating my skin. The consistency is light, and it soaks in really well when applied directly after cleansing. I find it safe to use around my eyes and it doesn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts.

Very absorbant, feels light & great for hydration - 07-12-2018 by

I've been using this product in combination with a moisturiser both AM and PM for one month.
Initially the product didn't absorb well and you could only apply a small amount before piling occurred, however with consistent use and as the hydration of my skin improved I found it would absorb much quicker and a larger volume was required because it absorbed so quickly.
Feels weightless when applied, very easy to apply and creates smooth skin.

Inexpensive quality - 06-12-2018 by

I was looking for something that was well priced for my dry skin, sick of spending my hard earned money on expensive products that didn't deliver and one of my friends suggested I check out this brand. I'm really happy with it, it leaves my skin nice and soft and it has settled into my routine nicely!

Great product for moisture - 05-12-2018 by

I have mixed oily and dry flaky parts of my skin and find this is great across my whole face. It sinks in well and feels light on the skin. Great product!

AMAZING - 05-12-2018 by

Such an amazing product, purchased because of all the good reviews. So hydrating and makes my skin feel so nice and plump

Good product - 05-12-2018 by

I feel like this product has made my skin look more radiant, my tone also has improved. Overall I’m very happy with the product

Lovely product - 30-11-2018 by

I'm in my fifties and had oily skin when younger, now it's normal to dry with a slightly oily nose. I'm concerned about dryness which is why I bought this product. Amazingly I notice a difference straight away, it seems to fill out the wrinkles around my mouth. I use it at night before The Ordinary retinol 1%. I will use it in the morning as well when my rosehip oil runs out. Highly recommended.

Amazing product. - 29-11-2018 by

I put this on every morning before my moisturiser and makeup, and it's amazing. It makes my skin feel and look great, and makes my makeup last longer as well! I've noticed my skin no longer has dry, flakey patches. Will definitely buy again!

Perfect morning base for all day effect - 29-11-2018 by

I purchased this as I was hearing really good things about HA and wanted a cost effective way of mixing up my daily routine. I'm using this in the morning after my shower and will either mix it with the 10% lactic acid or apply it straight followed by a Clinique moisturiser. After using it most days over a week, I've noticed that my face feels more plump after applying and I get that nourished look for the entire day. I quite like the slightly tacky feel to this as it makes applying it really easy and only a very few drops are required.

LOVE - 29-11-2018 by

I love this product, I use it every morning and alternate at night between this and the niacinamide as I have occasional acne. During the day, the hyaluronic acid keeps my skin soft and supple and my make up looks super smooth throughout the entire day. When wearing overnight, I wake up with super soft, "blurred" skin and look really fresh. Will definitely re purchase, my favourite product from The Ordinary.

The Goldylocks of Hyaluronic Acid! - 29-11-2018 by

This is my third time purchasing The Ordinary Hylauronic Acid, and I really couldn't be happier. I have combination skin, with my T-Zone being incredibly oily, but my cheeks and outer forehead getting very dry, and this does wonders to help even it out. In the past I have found other Hyaluronic Acids to make my T-Zone even oiler, but it was not the case here. It isn't scented, which is actually a good thing, and it feels nice and light. However, it can be quite tacky and dries fairly quickly, and I have found that it sometimes doesn't sit well with some other serums; however, it is a bit of trial and error. I have recommended it to all of my friends, and this has become a holy grail for me.

Simple. - 29-11-2018 by

It what it says and does exactly what you would want it to. Not amazing but not terrible. Just, well I guess, Ordinary.

Great night time acid and B5 - 29-11-2018 by

I have combination skin and this Hyaluronic Acid and B5 is perfect after toning my skin at night. It helps to stop oxidisation and the B5 helps renewal. It's light weight and my face looks better in the morning.

Lovely - 29-11-2018 by

This product make my skin hydrated love this product the smell is not nice though but who cares if you get so many benefits

Wonderful product - 29-11-2018 by

I purchased this at the same time as the niacinamide and it is wonderful. My skin looks better than it ever has. My skin seems to glow and I have never been one to wear much make up so I am thrilled with the results. Makes skin feel soft and hydrated
