Overview

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! - 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!

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!
