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.

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!

Excellent Skin Hydrator - 17-04-2018 by

I use this product every morning and night, is an excellent skin hydrator. I don't notice any changes so much when using the product, but can definitely tell the difference when I run out of product and my skin feels drier and less absorbent. I think it really helps to plump up the skin and retain moisture. Would recommend

Wonderfully Hydrating - 17-04-2018 by

I am 49 with hormonal acne and combination skin. I also have a small amount of rosacea. This product feels great on my skin, there is no break outs and it hydrates my skin. I use it with other products of the same brand and it works beautifully with them. I cannot rave enough about this brand and I have purchased some for my Mum for Mother’s Day. Worth the purchase.

In Love - 12-04-2018 by

This little gem has started my love affair for The Ordinary. Leaves skin feeling firm and supple, a little goes a long way! Using this for 3 months now and see a difference in my skin clarity and fine lines.

Great product great price - 12-04-2018 by

Ordered my second bottle of this, it's a great introduction to using HA products as part of a skincare routine(probably pointless to use alone). I use it daily morning and evening, underneath the natural moisturising factors + HA. You need to wait to apply anything over it to avoid it pilling or balling up but I think that's expected with HA products.

Perfect hydration serum - 12-04-2018 by

This product is my go to product. I have breakout prone skin and I apply this product every night and I wake up with hydrated beautiful skin! the product is a serum and needs only a minimal amount so it lasts forever! I have recommend this product and the whole Ordinary range to everyone I see!

Good value for money - 12-04-2018 by

In my first foray into serious skincare I think The Ordinary was a brilliant start. The Hyaluronic layers well with Vitamin C and I love the bouncy feeling it gives when I wake up the next morning.
However no matter what hacks I tried, when layering with sunscreen and makeup it has major pilling problems. I was not the only one that happened to. The same happened to my sister.
Lastly, I am unsure about recommending it since it does not suit everyone's skin. My other sister used mine for 2-3 days and she had a major major reaction to this. her skin went all blotchy and red. So if you have extremely sensitive skin I would advice caution.

Great and effective! - 11-04-2018 by

I have oily/dry combination skin, my nose and cheeks get kind of oily but then I get dry patches on my forward and around my nostrils (weird I know). This hyaluronic acid has helped my skin so much, it seems to balance out the oily and then also moisturise the dry parts. And it's so cheap!

Great Hydration Much Skincare - 03-04-2018 by

I have oily acne prone skin, and this makes me feel better when I need some moisture at the end of the day before heading off to bed. I definitely think its worth trying as staying moisturised is a key part to prevent over oilyness

good for derma pen - 02-04-2018 by

Hi, I am very pleased with this product especially the price point and I love the packaging. I hope they don't up their prices in the future.

I use this every day under my sunscreen and moisturiser and my skin is looking great. I have only used it for two weeks and I must say that my jowls around my chin are less noticeable as my skin is more hydrated. I was thinking I needed a S-Lift or something.(not that I can afford it (:

I purchased a derma pen for $50 on ebay and have used the serum with the pen and it works really good...I also add a bit of water to it as I do it, this also has made a difference.

I am looking forward to using their other products...I like the fact they have a payment plan as money if money is tight....which it is and so is my skin (:

Such a good hydrator - 29-03-2018 by

I have very oily but dehydrated skin and was recommended to try hydraluronic acid. I purchased this serum and have been using it for a few weeks twice a day. I have noticed my skin has been better hydrated and less red since using this product. Best of all it has actually reduced my oil production. The only downside is this does leave a slightly sticky feel to the skin, however I use it underneath orpther serums and moisturisers so this hasn’t affected me. I will continue to use this every day and would recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely brilliant, no more dry skin! - 29-03-2018 by

I use this morning and night and have definitely seen an improvement in my skin. I'm normally a bit dry on my forehead but since I started using this product I haven't had any dry skin. It does feel a bit funny on the skin, but since it's usually the first step in my routine that doesn't affect me. Feel like I should re-order now just in case it's out of stock again!

Great - 29-03-2018 by

After a product burnt my skin, my poor skin needed hydration and a beauty group recommended this. It helped a lot to return moisture to my skin and it hasn't set off my sensitive skin. This is great and I'd definitely repurchase ones I run out. The price and range is just too good.

Great at night time - 27-03-2018 by

This is so cheap for a high quality serum. Very hydrating. However - i would recommend putting it on at night only, it balls up and is sticky through the day, and make up does not sit well. Otherwise a great product!

Does what it claims - 27-03-2018 by

I find that the texture of this serum leaves my oily skin feeling sticky and doesn't fully absorb even if I use just a little of it. But it does give my skin a nice boost of hydration and the low price point makes it pretty worth it.

Perfect for oily skin! - 27-03-2018 by

There was too much hype around these products so I thought I will give it a go and I started using it just after the shower and locking with a moisturizer and no kidding it has made my skin so hydrated throughout the day. I am onto my third bottle and its so pocket friendly too. It is a must have for me!!

Happy Skin! - 27-03-2018 by

My skin is usually quite dry and easily irritated. I tried The Ordinary's HA and it's been amazing! It hasn't irritated my skin at all and I've seen results really quickly. It's helped give me back nice, smooth skin and has kept it lovely and glowing.

Extremely effective, and exceptionally economical - 27-03-2018 by

I have been using this for the last couple of weeks at night, after cleansing and toning and before my night cream, and I can say that I have noticed *such* a difference!
I wake up in the morning with skin that feels like butter, and the texture is much improved. I have also used it on my lips under my treatment balm, each night, and my lips feel so pillowy and soft in the morning.
For the price-point, it's a diamond product. What are you waiting for?

Lucisous! - 26-03-2018 by

This is seriously amazing. It use it in the morning directly after an antioxidant serum by the Ordinary. i allow it to skin in for 10-20 minutes before moisturising. It keeps my skin soft all day and has reduced the amount of oil that I tend to get mid-morning and into the afternoon when wearing makeup all day at work. I love the Ordinary products and will rebuy this. Highly recommended.

Perfect for Oily Skin - 22-03-2018 by

I have oily acne prone skin, and hated using moisturizers because i left as though they made me so oily. Even the "oil free" and "non greasy" varieties. I kept being told you have to persist you have excess oils because your dry!
This is the first and only moisturizing product that has kept my face and make up together all day. 1 drop does your whole face, its weightless, no scent, absorbs quickly. And the price! How can you not buy a few at a time!

Amazing product - 19-03-2018 by

I am a massive fan of the Ordinary products and this one does not disappoint. I use it morning and night and it only takes a few drops. My skin feels fresh and hydrated. The price is fantastic- the only problem I have had with this product is actually getting some, as it was always out of stock when I came looking for it

Hydrating and Smooth Skin - 19-03-2018 by

After using this product a few times, I have already found that my skin is way more smoother than it has ever been before. Although, i have naturally oily skin I still use this product.

Great Product! - 19-03-2018 by

I have oily dehydrated skin and was recommended this product and I absolutely love it, such a great price and my skin has never been so soft.

Best Product I’ve Ever Used!! - 12-03-2018 by

I usually have really dull lifeless skin and suffer from redness. I wear makeup everyday so my skin hardly sees the sun. I’ve only used this product for a week and have already noticed a massive difference. It has evened out my skin tone and helped reduce redness. My skin is so glowy and bright. It’s also really helped the texture aswell, my skin is soo smooth!! I’ve never felt so good about my skin!! Never wasting money on expensive skin care again!!

Great price for what it does! - 06-03-2018 by

I have only just started using this, but its super effective as a makeup primer but also helps radiant and give the skin a glow, after using this for now 2 weeks. I have noticed i am waking up with more softer, fresh and radiant skin, great product easy to use and is not oily at all, a little bit goes a long way and its just as effective as high end brands over $100.

Great product - 06-03-2018 by

This was great for the price but I think I slightly prefer HYLAMIDE LOW-MOLECULAR HA BOOSTER. Would use again though given price but maybe not through a super dry winter period.

Not a fan - 06-03-2018 by

Sadly, this product has not been effective for my skin. Firstly, I don't like how it feels on my skin, it is weirdly globby and like glue and does not go smoothly on my skin, then leaves a sticky residue (although I think many hyaluronic acid products do this anyway). Second, it has had no effect, there has been no plumping effect whatsoever. Disappointed overall. The only upside is that this was inexpensive and so worth trying out.

I wanted to love it! - 06-03-2018 by

I’m not sure if it’s the fault of the hot, dry weather this summer in Australia, but this product dries my skin out so much. I’m 62, with normal/combo skin, no real issues except the usual ageing. I always applied this to damp skin, and put serum/moisturiser on top as recommended. I found it stays quite sticky and doesn’t penetrate very well, and really did nothing beneficial for my skin. I love The Ordinary and use many of their great products, but this one is not for me.

Disappointing - 06-03-2018 by

As I near my 30s, I've become more and more conscious of skin health. I've noticed how majority of my face is dehydrated.

Before purchasing this product, I improved the hydration of my face but was using two different serums and I wanted to reduce to just using one. Big mistake choosing this product! It has taken me back to square one and my face feels more dehydrated than ever!

Disapppointed it didn't work for me.

Absolute winner - 28-02-2018 by

Love this stuff!!! For the price it is even better. I've had acne in tge past and have been left with pitted scarring. I definitely think tgis helps to "fill" them in immediately! And the hydration us definitely cumulative. Dries quick & perfect for under foundation!

Meh. - 27-02-2018 by

It's noticeable, but I would only use it on my lips. The NMF + HA is far better for the rest of your face.

hydrating and plumping base - 25-02-2018 by

This is great for plumping skin and under-eye hollows pre-makeup. Helps primer stay put too.

Helpful - 21-02-2018 by

Makes my skin feel a lot more smooth and moisturised - I've noticed I can apply powder without cream foundation underneath now and it doesn't look cakey and uneven. Previously my combination skin was too flaky and dry for that to look any good - it needed the extra moisture of cream foundation underneath. The product also seems to help redness to a degree.

Must have for everybody - 20-02-2018 by

I have a suffered from adult acne and scarring for the past year. This product has help so much as a daily staple in my night time routine before oils and moisturizing. It started by just hydrating my skin but overtime it brightened my scars and reduced the amount of breakouts on my skin. If I did have breakouts I would mix it with tea tree oil and squaline, which would heal them in a day or two. Love this so much, will continue to use every night.

Brilliant ! - 13-02-2018 by

Finally a no frills product that actually does what it says it will !! I am 53 and have oily skin, so, have a combination of skin concerns which include aging, oilyness, and, pigmentation. Have been using this along with several others from the range and am extremely impressed with the results. I will NEVER waste my money on expensive " fancy pants " skincare products again.

My new top skin care - 13-02-2018 by

now i know that i can’t live without thisssss product omg, thanks to the ordinary you did an amazing job

Very good, calm - 30-01-2018 by

Really enjoy this product and use it alongside the Ordinary Vitamin C as a kind of buffer. It's a lovely texture and doesn't leave the skin shiny.

Excellent product - 29-01-2018 by

I have always got some dry, scaly patches on my skin in the winter and my skin is very dry during the winter months even though I. have been using a night cream as a day cream to try and combat this. Since using this hyaluronic acid serum I have had no more dry patches and I can now use a day cream under my makeup and at such a low price - almost too good to be true!

Repeat purchase - 23-01-2018 by

This is a staple in my everyday skincare routine. I use it every night before the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. Being a bit of a skincare novice the simpler the better for me and the ordinary products seem to fit perfectly with that mantra. If my skin is feeling a bit dry I mix a drop of this in with my moisturiser for a deeper hydration. Overall my skin has been a lot softer and even with the use of the 2 products together

Great for the price - 23-01-2018 by

I have sensitive & combination skin with congestion around my jaw line. I apply this at night before my creams.
This helps my skin to stay hydrated and plumped.

Incredibly cheap and nourishing - 23-01-2018 by

I am on my third bottle of this magic. I have normal to dry skin and using this has let me stop using heavy moisturiser. I apply this to clean toned skin morning and night and my skin is noticeably smoother and softer. I use this under primer when applying make up and it makes my make up apply smoother and I'm not using as many layers of products. I will keep buying this as long as I can. I haven't found a better hyaluronic acid and I recommend this product to anyone who will listen. I love the packaging and the brand and am slowly making my way through all The Ordinary products but this is my current favourite.

Amazing Product! - 08-01-2018 by

This is my very first The Ordinary' product, and it has become a holy grail!

I've noticed my skin changing quite a bit in the last few months! I've always had reasonably normal skin, but I'm finding now, that I'm more dry/dehydrated with an oily t zone! This product has made a HUGE difference to the look, feel and texture of my skin. It makes my makeup application easier too! and I love that it absorbs so quickly so I can go in with other products on top almost immediately. Great for when I've slept in!

This is definitely a product I would recommend. I'll be giving more products by this brand a go in the near future!

I like! - 08-01-2018 by

I really like this product, it is one that doesn't show immediate results, however it does make my skin feel plump and hydrated. I will continue to use!

Holy grail of skincare - 28-12-2017 by

This product is an absolute must for every skin type. I have gone and bought another 2 back ups and some for my family. It hydrates, plumps, fills in my pores, has started to plump out depressed acne scars and makes my skin glow. The ordianary have done it again

Great Product - 27-12-2017 by

I have combination skin, causing me to have dry areas around my nose and congestion on my chin and forehead.

I started using this product with the hopes of keeping in moisture and balancing out my skin.

After 6 months of using this product every morning/night in combination with my moisturizer and I can see a clear improvement in the quality of my skin. Perfect if you would like to increase the moisture levels of your skin.

I am treating my breakouts with other products but this product does not cause me breakouts which is great.

Amazing Hydration - 20-12-2017 by

I LOVE THIS. It literally has no downsides. I put this on after a light argan oil and before a basic moisturiser and it makes my skin so plump & fresh! It feels like a cool water gel, It’s not heavy and very gentle - I have a bit of dermatitis around my nose that was hard to treat for years but this & the Ordinary Buffet have completely cleared it up! It is soooo amazingly hydrating I haven’t had a dry spot in months. I knew HA was good, but this one is the BEST.

Not sure - 20-12-2017 by

Im 31. I have normal skin, a bit dry on winter, and a bit oily on summer. Im on my second bottle now.
When i first purchase this, it was on winter. I did get good results and makes my skin hydrated and plump. My husband use it too and get good results. No break outs, i don’t really break out unless im having a period, 1 or 2 pimples and that’s it. My husband never gets breakout. Good price too, you can’t go wrong.
I purchase my second bottle this summer (i live in Perth). This time it didn’t do good on my skin, either to my husband. We get breakouts, pores got bigger that it is noticeable. We stop using it and will probably use it on winter just to finished it. As i get good results too on winter. But not sure if i will purchase it again.

Great Product, Great Price - 19-12-2017 by

I have been using this product for a few months now and I think my skin looks a lot more plump and hydrated. I'm sure there are better products out there but not at this price. I will definitely continue purchasing this one.

Not sure if it's doing anything... - 12-12-2017 by

I first stumbled upon hyaluronic acid on a Europe trip where I was massively unprepared for the winter cold/wind. I've got dry, sensitive skin as it is and the weather made it worse. I bought a bottle from Skinceuticals and it helped a lot. Continued using it when I returned to Australia and it made my skin a lot more hydrated and moisturised. So yes - hyaluronic acid definitely has my vote. However, I'm not so sure about this brand. I jumped on The Ordinary's version seeing as it's only a tenth of the price, but it doesn't seem to have the same effect of the Skinceuticals one. It feels a bit drier and stickier and I'm not sure it's doing anything. Will not repurchase.

Hydrated skin! - 12-12-2017 by

This is a very good hyaluronic acid serum. It absorbs into the skin well and doesn’t leave any tackiness. It has helped hydrate and plump up my skin and I have very dry around the eyes and it has helped that too. Thanks the ordinary!!!

Hydrating - 29-11-2017 by

This product seems to work really well with my skin! I have dry skin and it really does help to hydrate it. Will definitely purchase again

Jury is out - 27-11-2017 by

I am 42 with fair skin. Prone to dry skin and sun damage.

I just don't know about this one. I found that this is one of those 'is it really doing anything products'. Hyaluronic Acid is in virtually everything these days so I don't think I will be repurchasing this one. For someone new to skin care they may see more benefit of this one than myself.

It didn't cause any issues though.

Great product, great price - 22-11-2017 by

Would definitely recommend. Am already onto my second bottle. Using the Ordinary HA is the first time using HA at all (and doing more than just using moisturiser), and to purchase this elsewhere (say through skincare clinics) is ridiculously expensive compared to this. It soaks in well and pairs with everything I choose to put on after. I use morning and night, normally followed by Buffet or Matrixyl and then probably a simple moisturising cream (I use Sukin) just to add in even more moisture. My skin hasnt looked back since I have started all the Ordinary products. HA is a great base to start with.

Feeling hydrated - 21-11-2017 by

So far i am enjoying this the only problem is pilling and alot of it. So will probably only use at night
Other then that i have noticed my skin is looking great

Pairs well with the HA moisturiser from the ordinary - 20-11-2017 by

This serum by it self is amazing as you can feel it being absorbed by the skin instantly. When you pair it with your daily moisturiser or a face oil on a dry skin day, you skin ends up feeling supple. I am absolutely in love with this brand and I bought 5 different things all for under $100 which is crazy in terms of pricing

Blown away - 16-11-2017 by

I recently learnt the benefits of Hydralauronic Acid through a sample product. Somehow I stumbled across The Ordinary and the brand image resonated with me. Normally I steer clear of cheap skincare but I thought I'd give this product a go, based on overwhelmingly great reviews. I was completely blown away. It does everything it said it would do, at a fraction of the price I'm accustomed to paying. My skin is soft and supple, but not oily. The product feels a bit sticky if I put too much on. Three drops is sufficient for my whole face. The Ordinary is now my new favourite brand.

Amazing - 13-11-2017 by

I always think the mark of a good skincare product is whether you miss it when you remove it from your routine. I went away recently and didn't take my hyaluronic acid. Within two days I noticed the difference, my skin didn't feel as nourished or hydrated and was visibly less plump. An absolutely amazing product for the price! Highly recommend

Best hydrator - 02-11-2017 by

The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% is my go-to hydrator.

My skin is fairly sensitive, I can't use anything with fragrances or specific preservatives. This Hyaluronic Acid is an absolute dream.

After application it feels absolutely weightless on the skin, and the slight smell of the product completely disappears. It leaves skin feeling hydrated and plump.

I also keep a bottle of this on my desk at work for a grease-free hand cream, and it works an absolute treat!!

Absolutely love this product - 01-11-2017 by

I have always struggled with dry skin but oiliness over my nose so moisturizers have been hit and miss. This has provided excellent hydration without making my skin oily at all. The texture and tone of my skin has vastly improved in only a week. I was also the victim of sunburn on the weekend and within 2 days my skin was back to normal and looking like nothing ever happened. I can't recommend this product enough.

Great hydration booster - 30-10-2017 by

Up until this past winter I have never suffered from dry skin on my face then it just hit me. Terrible dry, stubborn patches around my mouth and cheeks that wouldn’t budge no matter how much moisturiser I put on.

I added this product before my moisturiser and it changed my skin within 2 days! My dry patches were gone and overall my skin felt amazing and soft. Refuse to use moisturiser without this guy first. Love it.

Great - 26-10-2017 by

Fab stuff - really helps my dry/dehydrated skin. Goes on very light and, once dry, plumps up my skin without being super shiny, My moisturiser glides on beautifully over the top.

Also, it feels lovely and refreshing to put on.

Meh... - 23-10-2017 by

This product was a bit of a disappointment for me. It's not bad, but I feel like it's effects are very short term and certainly don't give me any more hydration than an extra layer of moisturiser. I do have very dry skin, but I was expecting it to give me at least a little extra hydration throughout the day. But after an hour, the extra moisture it gives up front has pretty much disappeared. It also stings slightly (at least on my skin) which I don't care for at all. I'll finish up my bottle, but I think I might try something else when I run out.

Great - 16-10-2017 by

I Love it, it works on my skin, I have combination skin and more dyer on my cheek, I use it morning and night and hydrate my skin and smooth. Love it.

Good Moisture booster for dry skin. - 16-10-2017 by

This is the second time im buying this. Its hydrating and smoothing and takes a minute to sink in to the skin. I use it under powder and liquid foundation with a layer of my regular Aesop or Alpha-H face cream on top of the HA. This doesn't pill for me and a little goes a long way.

Slight better hydration - 16-10-2017 by

I've used this for about few weeks now... I believe it's assisted making my skin look more plump and less tired however it xan come off in a Bally kind of texture so I may just use it at night... As i want a smooth finish for my foundation

Love this! - 12-10-2017 by

I love this product. It is absolutely hydrating for me, and leaves my skin really smooth. I have dry skin, and I like that this is absorbed immediately as soon as I put it on my skin. I use this in conjunction with The Ordinary's Buffet and I find it to be improving the texture of my skin overtime.

Mediocre - 02-10-2017 by

I'm not sure why I didn't have better results with this product like other users but it was quite middle of the road for me.
I didn't notice improved hydration levels, the quenched effect only lasted a few minutes. On a positive it is light and sits nicely with a moisturiser

Great product for the price - 27-09-2017 by

Excellent in the winter if you have normal skin like me that needs a little extra boost in the cooler months. Great price and product -- just be careful to not use too much as it does go a long way. I put on a little bit and wait for it to soak in to see if I need more.

Moisture enhancing but so much pilling - 27-09-2017 by

I'm a little unsure about this. It definitely helps improve moisture, but does not with a few side effects - first, it's quite tacky unless you wait 15-20 minutes for it to completely absorb... and then secondly, it pills so badly, again, not so bad if you wait 15-20 minutes but seriously, who has time for that?

Didn't work for me - 20-09-2017 by

Was disappointed, I put it on under my foundation and went about only to realise my foundation slid off. Tried to incorporate into my PM routine instead but it "pilled" and came off when I was layering products. The price is great and so is the premise of hydrated skin but I am not continuing use to establish results. I have combination skin and was hoping to prevent signs of ageing and plump up a bit. Still a fan of other products from this brand, I tried so hard to like it.

On the fence - 14-09-2017 by

Hyaluronic Acid is a pretty basic ingredient in almost all moisturisers these days, so I feel like this is one of The Ordinary's least necessary products. The Ordinary advises customers to use no more than 3 of their serums in your skincare routine, and I'm afraid there's definitely 3 others I would choose over this. It also leaves a tacky feeling to the skin. It's not the worst product, it's just not one that I really find myself using anymore now that I am using the better products from The Ordinary range

Drying? - 12-09-2017 by

I've been using this for the past couple of weeks and I noticed I have less oiliness, or dare I say dryness on my cheeks. Could it be that because my skin is moisturised, it is producing less oil? I have combination skin, so this is great for my T zone, but I apply extra moisturiser on my cheeks to counter the dryness. I wouldn't change a thing and I wish this product was around during my teens!

Not great in low humidity climates! - 21-08-2017 by

Be aware before you jump on the hyaluronic bandwagon that this acid has to draw moisture from somewhere and if there is no moisture in the environment you live in, it will suck it from your skin rather than adding moisture to it. Living in Perth in the middle of winter, this left my sin parched, tight and itchy.

Good product - 10-08-2017 by

this formula feels kinda of sticky and thick however once its on your skin and drys its perfect! extremely hydrating and works well with the buffet :)

Game changer - 08-08-2017 by

Instantly hydrating and plumping. As other reviewers have said, wake up with a face as soft as a baby's bottom.Best used before, or mixed with, your final stage of a moisturiser/oil. I love mixing this with The Ordinary Rosehip or Squalane oil.

Skincare Go To - 01-08-2017 by

I would highly recommend adding this product to your skin care routine. I apply to product morning and night before applying any of my other serums and I just find it is a great base of hydration to have in your regimen. It is super affordable and smells great! I couldn't go a day without applying my Hyaluronic Acid and I'll definitely be coming back to get this product again once my bottle is done :) My skin has not felt more hydrated during winter!

Did not work for me - 30-07-2017 by

I have very oily skin and this did the complete opposite of what it's meant to do. After 4 days of using this product, it left my skin tight and dehydrated. I have had better results from Deciem's Hylamide Low-Molecular HA.

It's great to know it works amazingly for other people, but unfortunately I'm not one of them.

Try it, it's cheap and works wonders - 27-07-2017 by

I was hesitant to try this but after trying so many up-market brands and them not doing anything, I figured I had nothing to lose. I got this and The Natural Moisturising Factors. My skin has never been this good, and it's during a Melbourne winter.

Amazing - 23-07-2017 by

Cheap, nice packaging, works amazingly. This with the Niacinamide works so well together. My pores have been reduced, my breakouts smaller and my skin softer. It's easy to apply and for such a cheap product is does wonders.
I love this and will be buying again :)

Very light and not oily at all - 21-07-2017 by

I've not really had a skincare routine before, but recently I started using this moisturiser in conjunction with a the Skinstitute Gentle Cleanser. I've only been using it for a few weeks now but I really love it. It is incredibly light - not oily at all - and I find that it absorbs into my skin like water into a paper towel. It just vanishes from my face (or into my face as is the case) in seconds leaving my skin feeling refreshed and also tighter than before, tighter in a good way. My skin feels refreshed and soft throughout the day, and I also believe it has a positive impact on my skin creases and wrinkles. I definitely recommend this product, especially considering its low price.

best suited to normal or combination skin types - 18-07-2017 by

I liked using this product, it was lightweight and the packaging made it really easy to use. The serum absorbed into my skin really easily with no residue and a nice simple scent. I think the formula is more suited to normal to combination skin types as my skin is very dry and needs something a bit heavier and richer.

Better for normal/combo skin - 17-07-2017 by

I think this product is best suited to normal/combination skin types or someone who is looking for a lightweight treatment.

easier than moisturising - 17-07-2017 by

I've never really been a huge fan of moisturising as I don't really like that kind of moist feeling it leaves on my skin, but this really seems to absorb quickly and it leaves my skin feeling more refreshed than anything. It's super easy to just put a few drops on my skin after a shower, and it has a noticeable effect for at least a good 12 hours afterwards, my skin has even felt noticeably less oily 24 hours or more after using it.

very lightweight - 17-07-2017 by

I don't usually moisturise my skin because it's quite oily and prone to blackheads. I have been using this instead of a moisturiser and find it's a really good alternative for my skin type. I like that it doesn't really have a scent at all, and it absorbs really easily into my skin.

I really like the fact that this is affordable, so if I go overboard and use too much I'm not worried about it. Since using this and the NIOD Sanskrit cleanser, my skin has started to feel less oily and congested and is much more comfortable throughout the day.

LOVE LOVE LOVE ❤️ - 12-07-2017 by

I saw Jaclyn Hill do a skincare routine and she said she uses Hyaluronic Acid, so I thought I'd see if I could find it and if it was affordable. I am soooo glad I did. Iv only been using this for 3 days and I can already see a huge difference in my skin. This is so so amazing!!! I cannot wait to order more from The Ordinary range.

Great product! - 10-07-2017 by

As a beauty therapist I have used a lot of different Hyaluronic acids in the past and am always making clients to use them too as an essential part of a skincare routine. I've purchased and been using The Ordinary' s one as a trial and am quite blown away! Not only is it stronger than most of the ones that are readily available but it's so cost effective it's ridiculous! My skin has been looking and feeling so hydrated! I am very impressed and have now purchased another dozen products to try from the range!

Beyond Amazing!!! - 29-06-2017 by

I have been using this at night with the rose hip seed oil and my skin has never been this clear before. I have combination oily-dry skin so I find it hard to find the right balance. I also have been using the niacinamide/zinc serum in the morning for oil control and this at night for a moisture boost.

An outstanding hydration product - even for oily skin! - 21-06-2017 by

I have just purchased quite a few items from The Ordinary and this one is fantastic. I have oily prone skin and since I've been using this at night to hydrate, and alternating it with the Niacinamide, my skin looks better than ever!

Absolute I love it - 29-05-2017 by

For me the serum is really good I'm impressed

Feels fantastic - 20-05-2017 by

Feels great on the skin lightweight and absorbs quickly. Packaging is wonderful and looks high end.

OMG - 21-04-2017 by

I recently was diagnosed with eczema around my eyes and so I have been trying to find suitable skin care that wont make my skin crawl and crack.

I have used this once tonight together with the Retinoid Cream and the Moisturizing cream. OMG I have not felt relief like this in months!!!!! I am so happy I stumbled upon this skincare line!

Saviour for my Dry and Flaky skin!!! - 20-04-2017 by

I use this serum right after I take shower to lock in natural skin hydration. It plumps up my skin and makes my skin ready for moisturiser. I recommend this because I have dehydrated & flaky skin and this always helps combat that. I am in love with the Ordinary Range already. Love... Love... Love... Cant praise it enough. Highly recommend!!!!

Great Serum! - 06-04-2017 by

The Ordinary falls under the umbrella of Deciem which also created NIOD (and its amazing neck gel!). Their products are all free of animal testing, sulphates, mineral oil, and mercury.

I decided to try this because I wanted to put more benefit of Hyaluronic Acid onto my skin. This product is free from silicone and alcohol. I have use this for almost two weeks as part of my PM skin care and noticed the difference with my skin in the morning (brighter and less tired-looking). I'd love to try their Vitamin C suspension next time :-)

This is the BOMB - 13-02-2017 by

I am one of the few who in the past who have found previous Hyaluronic Acids have dried my skin out. It would feel worse than if I haven't used it. Weird I know.
But this product is amazing. I have Oily Combo skin that is dehydrated. I used it for the first time at night followed by tThe Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors lotion and woke up the next morning with skin like a baby's bottom !
So soft and PLUMP that lasts all day.
This goes a long way so you only need 2 or 3 drops. Now I use it morning and night after cleanser and toner and before night time skin care or morning moisturiser.
Highly recommend
