Staple product

Ripley

I love this serum SO much. This coupled with a niacinamide saved my dry flaky skin. I love using it morning and night, it just really keeps my skin calm and balanced. Also, it may look small but a little goes a long way! It really spreads easily. Plus it is such a good price!! Will definitely repurchase!!

Most Helpful Criticism

Not seen a huge difference

RoJo

I'm a 30 year old with combination skin and I've been using this as a part of my morning routine, after my Vitamin C serum and I always find that it pills around my brow and chin during that day. Immediate pilling occurs when I accidentally applied it before my Vit C serum one day, so avoid that order if you do buy this product. Not sure if all Hyaluronic acid products are the same, but I haven't noticed that much if an impact on my skin and more than likely won't repurchase. Not a reflection of my other The Ordinary products, though!
  1. a little sticky

    sp

    great serum, leaving my skin quite hydrated, onkly problem i have with it is its a little bit sticky at first but it does go away after rubbing it in a bit

  3. Must have product

    Jess

    This product is great. It makes your skin so plump and hydrated. I use on my lips and it has definitely made them more plump and extended the life of my lip fillers.
  4. Key to plump skin

    SW

    This made my skin so plump and hydrated! It was so satisfying to see visible improvements in my skin.
  5. Great

    Kellie

    verified purchaser
    was great but still not a fav of mine
  6. Hydrating!

    Teish

    verified purchaser
    This serum is nice and hydrating, with a lovely plump appearance on the skin. I always use this when my skin needs a little extra hydration, and have found it works better on damp skin.
  7. restore/retain skin moisture

    Nor Akma

    It does their work very well. No more dry skin for me! My skin are well hydrated and looks radiant after a week of applying it. I applied it twice a day, morning and night.
    Very satisfied with the results!
  8. Amazing!

    Friendstar

    This is a little powerhouse product for the price. I love the dropper for easy dispensing and the product works well under creams or serums and it truly does help plump and replenish skin. My skin texture has been phenomenal since using it and I feel I get more out of my other products too. It also lasts a super long time and again - for the price point - how could you not?
  9. amazing

    sabrina

    helped smooth out my skin, skin felt so much softer and moisturised
  10. Soft skin

    CC

    New to skincare and was curious of the hype around The Ordinary so I decided to give it a shot. It has definitely helped make my skin softer and more hydrated and glowy. I did find that it pills under makeup and sunscreen though so I use it at night before my moisturiser which has worked well.
  11. Great product

    Angele

    I've been using every morning and night for a couple of months and have noticed a solid improvement in skin moisture and softness. I like how it doesn't cause irritation and can be paired with other serums.
  12. Hyaluronic acid

    anna

    this is great for a light serum that hydrates my skin. Doesn't replace a moisturiser though
  13. Best moisture

    Pavla

    I have purchased this product about 3 weeks ago and already seeing results. I have mature skin with
    Signs of aging. I only used spf creams for most of my life and now just trying to give my skin a bit of love.

  14. My go to

    Lila

    This is the best Hyaluronic Acid that you can find for this price. I use it everyday before my moisturiser and I love it. The only issue I have with it is that it can pile up under makeup and ruin your foundation, so I dont use it if I have to do my makeup in a rush.
  15. great HA

    VDiddy

    I don't think you have to spend much on moisturising products to get a good return. This is lovely, absorbs easily and is a great step after cleansing before everything else. At this price point it is worth trying it out. I would always recommend ordinary products for people with a low budget or new to skin care.
  16. Not for me

    Vee

    I have combo skin (oily and dehydrated) and this oddly caused dryness which I have never had previously. I'm not sure if it was the combination of the additional products I was using but I did use as instructed. Overall, not for me.
  17. Smooth and hydrating

    Tracy

    Really feel like this makes my skin plump and hydrated from the inside out. Can't really fault it. Use it every day in my night routine.
  18. For the price you can't beat it

    Jessie

    You can't fault how cheap this is, and if you're just getting into skin care this is a great starter. However, if you're willing to invest some more, a more high quality HA feels like HEAVEN compared to this. I started out with this one, then invested in a better one and gave this to my husband :D
  19. Good!

    Monica

    Great! It did not irritate my skin at all i would recommend, there is an initial purge period though
  20. So-so

    Tori

    This worked for me for a little bit, and was great when it was working, very hydrating and my skin felt lovely. But then it started to make me break out and didn't react well with my other skincare.
  21. Plump skin

    Ginger

    My skin gets easily dehydrated and I'm so glad I tried this. This is thicker than most hydrating serums so it was difficult to use at first. However applying after a hydrating toner helped immensely. It soaks into the skin to plump it up. My skin has never been more hydrated! Love love love.
  22. A great budget Hyaluronic Acid

    A great budget Hyaluronic Acid

    I love this serum as a budget friendly hyaluronic acid! I feel like my skin is more hydrated when using this
  23. leaves my skin feeling healthy

    charlie

    I really like this product it leaves my skin feeling very healthy after use, hydrated and pump
  24. Great for dry skin

    Alexandra

    This is a must-have for dry skin.
    Apply to a damp face for best effectiveness.

    I also use this to create a perfect acne scarring coverage.

    - The Ordinary Hyaluronic acid
    -Thin layer of The Ordinary High Adherence primer all over the face.
    -Nars Soft Matte Concealer dabbed on with a concealer brush over acne or scaring.

    Wait 2 minutes.

  25. Good for hydration

    Starry

    A thin serum which layers nicely under moisturisers and cream for extra hydration.
  26. No help to redness

    Gigi

    I have to say - I don't see any real impact on hydration or redness - which is what these ingredients are supposed to do. I doubt I'll repurchase.
  27. Yes to hydration

    Elise

    Love covering my entire face in this every morning and night after washing my face. Makes my skin feel supple and plump and well hydrated. So cheap and so easy to keep repurchasing.
    Sometimes feels slightly tacky but quickly washes off hands and sinks in quickly and I always follow with an additional moisturiser
  28. Good quality and affordable!

    Yvonne

    This is a good product to encourage moisture retention and avoid moisture loss! Suitable for all skin types and is affordable
  29. Amazing

    Sarah

    I am in my thirties and have dehydrated skin. This stuff is just amazing and it's so much cheaper than many skin products. I will use this forever.
  30. My favourite!

    Fireworks

    The most affordable and effective hyaluronic acid on the market. This is the 5th time i've repurchased. It leaves my dry skin smooth and supple. Always follow up with a moisturiser !
  31. Simple but brilliant

    Sarah

    Very simple but good serum. Been through many bottles and I still love it.
  32. Okay?

    Jessica

    Didn't see huge benefits in using this serum combined with a moisturiser unfortunately. I finished the bottle but I could have just used the moisturiser and my skin would have felt the same.
  33. Highly recommend

    Chiara

    I use this product every morning and have been for about a year. I have noticed such a difference in my skin since incorporating it into my skincare routine. Instantly my skin feel refreshed and more hydrated. It feels very light on the skin, I have noticed my skin looks a lot healthier and glowing since using this product. Its a must in everyone's skincare routine
  34. works ok

    J

    has some plumping effect upon application; tried daily for 3 months. probably won't buy again, i think regular moisturiser will suffice
  35. Total convert

    luellabella

    After suffering from a dry (and cracking feeling) face for years, and now, the first signs of ageing, friends recommended I try The Ordinary. I use this, followed by The Ordinary Buffet and The Ordinary Moisteriser every single morning. My 30mL bottle has lasted nearly 6 months and I'm just about to buy more.
  36. Love it

    Nat

    This is a great product for me, make my skin looks great and the price is great. I have been using it for a while combined with other products from the ordinary.

  38. Staple TO Product!

    ST

    Very hydrating serum which can be used daily prior to moisturiser (or an oil). The serum goes a bit tacky as it dries, so if you are laying an oil over the top, it is important to wait 10-15 minutes until the HA is fully absorbed or you may experience pilling. Great product to use after a clay mask to rehydrate the skin.
  39. Great product

    katrina

    I like this a lot. It helps hydrate my skin without oiliness. The only downside is that it runs out quickly!
  40. I love it!

    elaine

    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.
  41. Value for money

    Brucey

    I 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.
  42. Glowing skin

    Ting

    Very 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...

  43. So far so good

    Caitlin

    I'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 ...

  44. Ok...

    Samantha

    The price is amazing but I honestly don't really think this made a difference to hystration. Probably my least favorite The Ordinary Product.
  45. Nice product for dry/sensitive skin

    Anne

    I 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.
  46. Pills underneath makeup

    Loz

    Not my favourite product, it would pill underneath makeup - probably better to use at night time.
  47. Great for some extra hydration!

    Josh

    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.
  48. Very hydrating

    Eri

    Very 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.
  49. Everyday, all rounder

    Carrissa

    I 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!
  50. really plumpling

    melol

    it was really plumping and made my skin have a really nice glow. definitely recommend!
  51. Best skin care I’ve used!

    Chels

    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!
  52. hydrating, but thick

    Qianwen

    This serum is good for moisturising, but it is thick, maybe not suitable for oily skin
  53. Okay but not seeing any major benefits

    Brooke

    This 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.
  54. Good product for the price

    Sol

    The 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.
  55. Nice!

    MeganS

    Made my skin very hydrated and glowy. Lightweight and silky
  56. YES!

    megha

    So good, so affordable and effective! Leaves my skin feeling super plump and hydrated. It's a great addition to my routine
  57. A quench of water for your skin!

    Mish

    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 :)
  58. LOVE IT

    GG

    love 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!
  59. Should have tried this sooner!

    Chantal

    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!
  60. Nice and hydrating

    Lisa

    Leaves my skin feeling really soft and supple.
  61. Not for me.

    Sylvia

    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..
  62. Essential product

    claire

    There'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.
  63. Everyday staple

    B

    This 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...

  64. Must buy!

    Nat

    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.
  65. Love this product

    Rose

    I 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.
  66. Hydration boost

    Christina

    This 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.
  67. Life changing for dry skin

    Izzy

    I 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.
  68. Great for dry skin

    Alexandra

    This 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.
  69. Super hydrating

    Loz

    I 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.
  70. Great starter serum

    CaityB

    This 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!
  71. MY GO TOO!

    madelainejane

    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!
  72. Don't like it as much as others

    DaniD

    I 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
  73. Great hydrating serum

    Eliza

    I use this morning and night and it makes me feel hydrated and sits well under moisturiser, SPF and primer.
  74. Boosts hydration

    Lis

    I found it really nice in rehydrating my oily but dehydrated skin! It makes my skin feel really soft and supple.
  75. Thick but hydrating

    Meg

    I 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!
  76. Hydrating

    Amy

    Great 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.
  77. Just as good as products 10x the price

    Rebecca

    This 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...

  78. Not bad!

    GeorgiaW

    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.

  81. Favourite.

    Britt

    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.
  82. Holy Grail

    Melly

    This 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 .
  83. Sticky sticky sticky

    AddictedToSkincare

    This 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.
  84. Absolutely LOVE this product

    Kris

    I'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.
  85. Super hydrating

    HP

    I 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.
  86. So affordable and works well

    Mia

    The product was packaged nicely and was shipped within a day of ordering, WOW! So impressed with this product would definitely recommend
  87. good for skincare during pandemic

    Lainz

    good at drawing moisture to the skin. so its great for applying before heavy creams to protect you from wearing a face mask
  88. Affordable and great value of money

    Heli

    I 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 ...

  89. Relatively hydrating

    Fiona

    I 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!
  90. Super hydration

    Naomi

    I thought this product was amazing. I use it every morning to keep my skin hydrated and plump and it is so affordable
  91. The best anti aging and acne serum ever!

    Summer

    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!
  92. Hydrating

    Claire

    a 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.
  93. Incredible

    Alice

    My 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.
  94. Not for me

    Vik

    This 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.
  95. Brilliant

    Natasha

    Excellent hydrator. I use it twice a day on my aging skin and it really makes my skin plump. Great to use after microneedling.
  96. hyaluronic

    ya

    my skin drinks this up. it's great for oily skin because it doesn't feel heavy or greasy
  97. hyaluronic acid

    sha

    hyaluronic acid is great for an extra amount of hydration for my dry skin. this one doesn't irritate my skin at all, will repurchase
  98. So hydrating!

    D

    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.
