Great productverified purchaserI like this a lot. It helps hydrate my skin without oiliness. The only downside is that it runs out quickly!
I love it!I was amazed at how easily this absorbed into my skin, and it left absolutely no residue, sticky feeling, or oiliness. I've noticed my skin definitely looks more hydrated and it's a great addition to my skin care routine, or makeup when I'm going for a full face. It gets used up kind of quickly but it's affordable and worth it! My skin is oily and it hasn't been bad for it at all.
Value for moneyI have just finished a bottle of this serum and I plan to repurchase. It helps my skin feel and look extra hydrated. I apply it morning and night after applying salicylic acid spot treatments on current pimples. After I apply the Hyaluronic acid, I put on The Ordinary's niacinamide serum and then moisturiser.
Glowing skinVery affordable product and helped me get my foot into developing my skin care routine on a budget.
My skin was glowing and was well hydrated just after 2 weeks of use. However, I found that it kind of rubs off my skin after it's dried, I'm pretty sure it's the product and not dry skin because it can happens everyday when I put it on. Overwise, it does a really good job at keeping my...Read More
So far so goodI've only used this product for nearly a week now, along with 4 other products from The Ordinary. I find it does take a bit to dry as it's quite tacky, so have to wait a few minutes to apply the next product. But once it is dry it does leaves the skin feeling and looking so nice and refreshed! I've already noticed a different with my skin and it's only been 4 days! But then again I am using a few ...Read More
Ok...verified purchaserThe price is amazing but I honestly don't really think this made a difference to hystration. Probably my least favorite The Ordinary Product.
Nice product for dry/sensitive skinI have dry and sensitive skin and this product works well for me, particularly during the past colder months. The texture is slightly off putting since it's quite tacky, however I don't mind it since it is usually the last step I do before moisturiser. Overall a good product, especially for the affordable price point.
Pills underneath makeupNot my favourite product, it would pill underneath makeup - probably better to use at night time.
Great for some extra hydration!I have normal skin so I don’t use this all the time - usually only when I’ve used some strong exfoliation or heavy acids and my skin needs a little boost in moisture. I also use The Ordinary moisturizer that has HA in it too which is enough on its own.
Very hydratingverified purchaserVery hydrating serum that I never go without. It hydrates the skin without making it look shiny. It doesn’t feel heavy at all and can be layered with other skincare products or makeup without problem.
Everyday, all rounderI use this product twice daily after my morning cleanse and evening cleanse. It makes me feel instantly hydrated and makes my skin super supple.
I love using this product and its great value for money!
really plumplingit was really plumping and made my skin have a really nice glow. definitely recommend!
Best skin care I’ve used!Ive had such red and dry skin lately which I’ve never experienced before. I tried multiple products and nothing cleared it up. A friend of mine recommended this product, alone with the vitamin C squaline serum and the moisturiser. Within days my skin was plump, clear and shiny. I couldn’t be happier with this product!
hydrating, but thickThis serum is good for moisturising, but it is thick, maybe not suitable for oily skin
feels niceI lıke how smooth ıt makes my skın feel
Okay but not seeing any major benefitsThis serum feels nice when applied to the skin but it does seem to give my skin a bit of a 'dry' feeling (i.e. like its screaming out for a moisturiser over the top). I haven't noticed a major difference in how my skin looks or feels, despite using almost a whole bottle now.
Good product for the priceThe Ordinary brand is a great introduction into skincare, has good packaging, and is at a great price point. The packaging of the hyaluronic acid makes it easy to use and after daily use, it has lasted for a long time. The texture is sticky but I've noticed this is common for hyaluronic acid products. It has been good for use on my dry skin and has made my skin more bouncy and hydrated.
Nice!Made my skin very hydrated and glowy. Lightweight and silky
YES!So good, so affordable and effective! Leaves my skin feeling super plump and hydrated. It's a great addition to my routine
A quench of water for your skin!My very first hyaluronic acid that I have introduced into my skin care routine, and I have nothing but good things to say about this product from The Ordinary I use it both AM & PM as I have dry skin and it helped keep my skin hydrated throughout winter :)
LOVE ITlove it! adds such a nice plumpness to the skin. use it sparingly or it will be very skin and ball up when you use other products!
Should have tried this sooner!I had been thinking about adding a hyaluronic acid into my skincare routine for a long time but wasn't sure if it was really necessary. The morning after I used this for the first time my skin looked plumper and more hydrated. Such good value for money and a great product. I will definitely be repurchasing!
Nice and hydratingLeaves my skin feeling really soft and supple.
Not for me.Price-point is amazing but I can't get over the texture (stickiness). Not for me. I'm sure it's hydrating, but I can't even tell because of the tacky finish..
Essential productThere's a reason there's a supersized version of this, its amazing! It's probably the easiest product to incorporate into your skincare and I've finished a full bottle already. I have dry skin and I don't mind the tacky consistency, it works best when you apply it onto damp skin anyway so the texture ends up thining out.
Everyday stapleThis product is a-maz-ing. My skin is extremely dry/acne prone, and I often struggle with dry-patches around my lower mouth area. Hyaluronic acid has become a key staple in my skin care routine, as not only is it extremely versatile (am/pm, used on its own or mixed with other moisturizers), it actually makes a difference and didn't irritate my skin. If you have dry skin, I highly recommend at l...Read More
Must buy!I really love this product! It is so hydrating (as the description suggests), and it has really improved the texture of my skin too with continuous use. The formula is a little tacky but I just wait a few minutes before applying my night cream.
Love this productI absolutely love this serum. I use in conjunction with The Ordinary HA moisturiser and caffeine eye serum and I have found amazing results. Having just had a baby I don’t get the most amount of sleep and yet people are telling me how fresh and young I look! Have reordered in the bigger size. Very hydrating and texture is lovely and easy to apply.
Hydration boostThis works well as a simple hydrating serum when layered with toner and cream. Texture is quite viscous so allow it to be fully absorbed before applying foundation! Does its job of delivering hydration so its a decent option considering the low price point.
Life changing for dry skinI started using this serum morning and night underneath my moisturiser after going through a period of very dry skin that moisturiser could not help. After only a few days I noticed my skin felt softer and now after a few weeks even dewy! It's cheap enough to that I don't feel worried about running out and even then only a few drops go a long way.
Great for dry skinThis is a fantastic product for dry skin. It plumps the skin and provides much-needed hydration without breaking out or causing irritation to sensitive skin.
Apply to damp skin for best effect.
Super hydratingI loveeee how hydrating and refreshing this is on your skin and it has cleared my acne up soo much! I just wish they came in larger bottles because you go through them pretty quickly if you use the product every day.
Great starter serumThis was the first serum I got into. It's great for the price and does make a difference. It does take a little longer to work into your skin and can be a it tacky but sits under other products nicely!
MY GO TOO!I've used this product for many years and if I don't use it I notice such a difference. If you have dry skin and need something to make you look plump and moisturised, do not skip this product!
Don't like it as much as othersI have normal-dry skin, especially dry around my chin and nose. I have used another Hyaluronic acid right before this one, and I noticed a big difference between the 2. This one provided significantly less obvious hydration than the other one. I have gone through a whole bottle of this and honestly didn't notice much of a difference in my skin. Won't repurchase
Great hydrating serumI use this morning and night and it makes me feel hydrated and sits well under moisturiser, SPF and primer.
Boosts hydrationI found it really nice in rehydrating my oily but dehydrated skin! It makes my skin feel really soft and supple.
Thick but hydratingI found this product was hydrating which is, of course, the result we all want, however, I just can't get past the texture of the product. It it too thick and tacky for me. But overall, crazily good for the price!
HydratingGreat for adding hydration into your skin. The price point is excellent and great for beginners who are trying to find what products suit their skin needs.
Just as good as products 10x the priceThis product is IDENTICAL to others I have tried that come in at $99 (for a smaller quantity I might add). So for me, it is a no brainer. The ordinary wins hands down.
I could actually notice a visible difference in the appearance of fine lines beneath my eyes after use - and you only need to use one drop.
I use this with other ordinary products in my daily skincare rout...Read More
Not bad!I have used an high priced alternative for quite a few years and I thought wow, $12 may be too good to be true - but this product defiantly lives up to my expectations! It is silky on the skin and gives a beautiful sheen glow. I love to sleep in a thick layer of this serum, I wake up feeling fresh! The smell is ok.
hyrdratingleaves my skin feeling so hydrated. Great for those who have dryer skin.
hyaluronicvery thick compared to other brands, but very hydrating. Almost replaces my moisturiser for me (oily skin(
Favourite.I have been happily using TO's Hyaluronic Acid for years! It's beautifully hydrating and extremely effective. I'm so impressed by the affordability, too - I've tried so many expensive HA serums and this has outperformed them all! It keeps my skin hydrated and makes my fine lines less noticable.
AmazingMakes my skin feel so good
Holy GrailThis HA serum is one of the best in the market - effective and affordable! I've purchased this over and over again and will continue to do so .
Sticky sticky stickyThis is good for the price but definitely a sticky tacky formula that never really dries properly making it terrible for layering with other skincare or foundation. Fine for night time use when you'll be asleep and wont notice but not the best HA serum going around. Fine for the price but not amazing.
Absolutely LOVE this productI've been using this for about a year now & absolutely love it. Feels amazing on my skin, incredible value for money. It's a must-have in my daily skin care routine.
Super hydratingI have dry skin typically. I use this morning and night. This has helped my skin feel hydrated throughout the day. Could not recommend this more especially for dry skin.
So affordable and works wellThe product was packaged nicely and was shipped within a day of ordering, WOW! So impressed with this product would definitely recommend
good for skincare during pandemicgood at drawing moisture to the skin. so its great for applying before heavy creams to protect you from wearing a face mask
Affordable and great value of moneyI had heard that ordinary products are quite affordable. I like the packaging and the fact it doesn't have any strong smell. I ordered lactic acid, niacinamide, Hyaluronic, retinoid and moisturizer. Amongst all the products I like the hyaluronic the most. However one downside is when you apply it feel and looks super hydrated however when you wash your face next morning it feels like the products ...Read More
Relatively hydratingI bought this product hoping it would add extra hydration to my skin, and although it did do its job as someone with relatively dry skin I wouldn't repurchase as I think I need something a bit more hydrating. However for the price and quality you can't go wrong with it!
Super hydrationI thought this product was amazing. I use it every morning to keep my skin hydrated and plump and it is so affordable
The best anti aging and acne serum ever!I have used this serum for a few months now and have noticed considerable changes. My skin feels more plump and hydrated and it has dramatically reduced my acne breakouts. I would definitely recommend this product for dryer and more sensitive acne prone skin!
Hydratinga big drink of water for your skin. Definitely apply it on damp skin or it may dry out the top layer of your skin. It is a great lightweight moisturiser.
IncredibleMy skin gets a bit dry and flakey during winter and this is so incredibly hydrating I can't believe I didn't try this out earlier. Definitely something I'll be buying over and over again.
Not for meThis doesn’t sink into the skin well or seem to provide any nourishment. It’s not for me and I wouldn’t buy it again.
BrilliantExcellent hydrator. I use it twice a day on my aging skin and it really makes my skin plump. Great to use after microneedling.
hyaluronicmy skin drinks this up. it's great for oily skin because it doesn't feel heavy or greasy
hyaluronic acidhyaluronic acid is great for an extra amount of hydration for my dry skin. this one doesn't irritate my skin at all, will repurchase
So hydrating!I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and it definitely helps with keeping my skin moisturised! I use it straight after my toner and it really helps with stopping dryness. It dries up so quickly too and so my skin doesn't feel gross after.
The dropper is great because it makes application so much easier.
Great for the priceThis product is great for the price. You do need to wait a little longer for this to absorb and it can be a little sticky. But the price vs. quality is hard to beat!
Plumps and hydratesI use this morning and night before anything else on my skin (after cleansing). Have been using it consistently now for over a month and I feel like my skin is plumper and brighter. It feels hydrating when I put it on. Would recommend especially given the good price!
Great hydration but test it if sensitiveI have really sensitive skin and forgot to test this, had a minor reaction with first use but tried it again a week later and no reaction and it seems like an awesome product. After I apply a cream to follow my skin looks glowey and feels SO hydrated.
I would just recommend to patch test the product. I tend to have more sensitive skin around certain times in my cycle so I’m putting i...Read More
Budget-friendly hydration!Makes my skin feel great, very soft and hydrated. I use it in the morning in combination with the Natural Moisturising Factors cream.
Nice hydrationI apply this in PM to my eye area after The Ordinary Niacinamide and I’ve found it refreshes my complexion. Feels a little sticky and looks glossy, but fine if you’re just jumping into bed.
Yay Hydration!!I love this product, I'd heard others complain about it being sticky on the skin but haven't found this to be an issue. Makes my skin feel so plump and hydrated.
Great Hydrator!Loving The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid with added B5 as it has help hydrate my skin this winter! I apply it on during the day along with my SPF facial moisturiser. It has no scent which I prefer. It does look like it has a sticky consistency when it comes out of the dropper, but there is no feeling sticky on my face when I apply it. Would recommend!
Not for meI have used a few Ha serums and B serums. The price for this is good yes, but in terms of noticing a different in skin its not that great. I have not noticed any change in hydration of my skin, and sometimes if too much is put on it can make skin feel sticky and slightly pile. Great if your on a budget or starting out but its hard to repurchase when you have tried far more superior brands
Awesome!Super hydrating. Some of the products from this brand are hit or miss for me but this one is a hit!
Get the most out of your mositeriser/face oilsI LOVE this product! I use it on alternate nights when I don't use Alpha H Liquid Gold. I really feel like it improves my skin's hydration.
So hyrdating!My skin drinks this up at night. I have dehydrated skin and this has done wonders for how plump my skin looks and has definitely helped me improve my moisture barrier. I only use at night because i found it went a little weird under makeup but even using just at night is enough to see the benefits.
Good value HAHydrating and budget friendly
Great hydrating serumI mix this with a few drops of water then spread it on my skin and layer with a moisturiser. My skin has looked so hydrated. Definitely repurchasing
FantasticFor the price, this stuff is fantastic! I was on the hunt for a hyalauronic acid based serum similar to the serum in my favourite ever sheet mask (sadly not stocked at Adore). After trying so many serums, and paying all sorts of exorbitant prices, this is most similar and wonderfully hydrating and plumping.
hydrating!!was not anticipating the gooeyness of the texture, however it applies quite well as long as you pat it onto your skin. would recommend
Must haveI have tried so many different brands for hyaluronic acid and I can say this is one of my favorites! This is the must-have hydrating serum everyone needs to try. really worth it though it is so cheap!
Liked itI have dry skin with redness and fine lines. I apply this product on slightly damp skin (pat most of water off after cleansing but leave a slight dampness on skin). It goes on beautifully and feels so refreshing and hydrating. Once touch dry I follow with moisturiser to lock in the hydration. Love this product.
Great productI would say that, after trying loads of very expensive serums, this one really does stand up. Its a good, basic, HA and I would recommend it to anyone.
SurprisedHave had people raved about this product. I was first unsure about but after having used, I am absolutely converted! Really see an improvement on my skin.
Cannot live without!I started HA and thought after my first jar I would stop using it because it didn’t seem to make a difference. Big mistake. It was only after stopping that I realised how much more smooth and moisturised my skin was when using it. Definitely do not let this one run out anymore!
Moisture in a bottleI was recommended this product by a friend and had low expectations given the price. I was pleasantly surprised. The product gives you instant hydration and makes your skin feel plump! It gives me the confidence to go makeup free! Would definitely purchase again!
Game changerMy skin is plump and just such a glow. Total game changer and so well price pointed!
great serumThis is such a greAT serum for the price, its very basic with little ingredient. the consistency can be on a more stickier side when you first apply it but it does get absorb into the skin and it feels great after you follow up with moisterizer
Worth the priceGreat value for the price and worked best when i mixed in with my moisturiser. Left skin feeling plump and hydrated.
Staple part of Skin careI love this serum. I have combo skin at times dry at times oily this worked at any time. Definitely plumped my skin and gave a slow. I use a lot of expensive skincare but I always have this as part of my regime. Love The Ordinary products.
Not my favoriteI know the price is good, but I didnt like the feel of the stickiness, it took 5 min to be able to apply next product, I can live with that, but my problem is I didnt feel hydrated and smooth face after using it, which generally is the effect with my other HA products. not for me...
Affordable and effective!I wanted an affordable and effective moisturising serum and this is the one for me! I wanted something I could use on my face, neck and hands so it is quite a bit of coverage and didn't want to splurge too much. It does go on a little sticky but that feeling goes away very quickly.
Glowy plumped skinIf you like having healthy looking plumped hydrated skin then this product is your best friend!
I use it morning and night but I tend to apply a lot of it at night because I love the consistency of it and feel that my skin is really absorbing as much as possible during the night!
My only regret is not getting the bigger bottleThis is such a great product and i cant believe the price is so low. So versatile too. I love this after derma rolling or to combine with my vitamin c to get rid of that gritty feeling. Will get the bigger size next order because this is definitely a new staple in my skincare routine.
It worksDefinitely works for those who have dry skin. I would recommend putting on a Moisturizer straight away to use up all the benefits.
Amazing for skin glowI layer this under squalane oil and it locks the moisture into my skin amazingly. Definitely not for use on its own though
Good productThis product is really nice to apply to skin leaving it feeling refreshed like it's had a big drink of water.
I like to mix this with my night cream as they're compatible.
I also apply this as part of my morning routine prior to my day cream and SPF.
Good productThe texture is a bit thicker than other serums but it sinks in pretty quickly
AmazingSuch a great product that has really hydrated and made my skin look so much fresher and brighter! Would definitely recommend to use as a serum underneath a thicker moisturiser to really give its full effect - no more dry patches on my skin!
Hylauronic on a budget!Absolutely no complaints with this product, for the price point I really don't have anything to complain about. My only recommendation is to get the bigger bottle if possible, its that good you'll be wanting more! great for sensitive and dry skin like mine! I found my skincare routine isn't the same without it
Hydration under moisturiserWhen I use this under a moisturiser, it helps to hydrate my skin without pulling moisture out to the surface
Hydration StationI really didn't know what to expect when using this product. I have very dry skin - especially in winter, with the worst parts being around my nose. Since using this serum my skin has been so much better! no more flakiness and it looks more hydrated and healthy. Will be ordering again in the bigger size when I finish my bottle!
Mix with water and stay hydratedThis is so hydrating for my skin especially when its humid, but if its not I splash my face with water before applying and it still works great
