    The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

    The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Reviews

    I bought this product because I've heard such good reviews on The Ordinary products. I was super excited when it arrived, I've followed the instructions and been using it for a month now. Very disappointed because it makes my face feel very sticky instead of hydrated. I also hoped that is would let my makeup sit well but instead after three hours my face is dry and my foundation is not sitting right. Very disappointed. Would not be repurchasing.
    Didn’t do much for my dry, eczema prone skin. But definitely worth a try given it’s so affordable. Maybe it’ll work for you.
    Immediate firming
    I haven’t got deep wrinkles, just smaller ones yet. I like the product as I can feel an immediate firming effect. Dries quickly, easy to use. I have only used it on my face. It really gives you a smooth effect and your skin feels hydrated after use. Will buy it again.
    Great for dry skin.
    Love it! Super nice for plumping my skin and giving extra moisture. If you have dry to normal skin, definitely recommending.
    Caused a breakout
    I bought this reading the great reviews unfortunately it did not live up to the hype, I have dry skin and used a couple of drops day and night and this made me breakout in spots. The item is cheap enough to experiment with so I don't feel like I wasted money, but it was a huge disappointment
    Brilliant product
    Brilliant results, I have super sensitive skin and this serum used twice a day gives me a hydrated and moisturised result. I am used to using high end products but not any more! Thank you The Ordinary.
    Ordinarily Good
    Really good products that work at a down to earth price
    Parched skin saviour
    My dry skin drinks it up. Since it was ordered to Dubai, it did take time to reach. But the wait was worth it. The air and water still makes my skin dry, but this serum is my only way to remain hydrated. I follow it with a oily serum or moisturizer. And with the affordable price range, repurchasing it will be a no-brainer.
    Such a difference
    My skin is so much more full and thriving when I’ve used this! Can’t fault it.
    One of the best acids
    Every day I can see my pores getting smaller and feel my skin getting softer.
    The ordinary
    Loved it
    Absolutely love this product. It feels a bit sticky at first touch. But dries perfectly and it really has saved my skin.
    Really Good!
    Really good product and amazing value for money!
    I am 46 with combination skin and this serum works perfectly on all zones. A few drops is all you need and it absorbs quickly. Great for those of us who don’t like heavy creams under our primer and foundation.
    Hyaluronic Acid
    I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and my skin definitely looks better. Clear and brighter. Will buy again.
    Great stuff
    This is a great product. Does what it says and doesn’t cost the earth.
    Love this stuff
    I don't know why but this serum works on me better than 65$ Peter Thomas Roth hyaluronic serum. Recommend to try.
    Absolutely nothing
    Maybe it works on 20 yo girls with no skin problems. But on my 30 yo dehydrated skin I didn’t notice a thing after half a bottle. It stayed dehydrated. Not worth the buy.
    Sadly I wasn't impressed with this serum, even though the price is great I found it pilled really easily and didn't layer well. Also for my oily/combo skin it was too sticky and greasy for my skin. I would recommend it more to the super dry types where it may work better. I also noticed 0 results from using this.
    Had really stubborn dry, flaky skin around my nose for years that no amount of exfoliating, moisturising or product would clear but after using this for only a couple of days it was all completely gone. Skin looks plumper and healthier. Amazing if you desperately need hydration but hate heavy moisturisers. I use this and a light moisturiser with spf and I'm good to go.
    Nothing happened
    I used this product for a month before I put on my moisturiser morning and night and I neither saw nor felt any difference in my skin. Bit of a letdown.
    Hair hack!
    It's a great starter product for someone who wants to ascertain if their skin reacts well to hyaluronic acid. I like using this on my hair after a shower. Gives my locks incredible volume, and the ends look less wiry.
    Cheap, cheerful and home use ONLY
    I’ve been using this serum for almost 3 months and I still have so much product left. It’s a great serum, good price, no smell, good quality bottle, but it is so sticky and gooey to use. I found it hard to use with other face creams or serums as they just gathered on my face looking a mess. I was advised to mix it in with my face cream - NONE of my face creams were having it. Great buy but very sticky and I wouldn’t suggest using to prep skin on a big night out. You’ll be there all night trying to wipe it off.
    Like it! Suitable for Eczema-prone Skin
    I recommend this product for young people like myself who have dry, eczema-prone skin. It does not irritate my sensitive skin and does not hurt even when applied directly to eczema. My face feels plumper and softer. However, once it dries, it leaves my face look super shiny yet not oily, like a polished wax figurine! A moisturiser is definitely needed after using this to get rid of the wax effect.
    So far loving it
    Received this product yesterday and I wanted to give it a good amount of time to review but I can see results instantly. I have very dry, dull and sensitive skin this time of year and a patch of psoriasis under my nose which usually reacts to any moisturiser even the natural based ones. But this stuff is fantastic the consistency is sticky but when rubbed into the skin it feels smooth and my skin looks revived and dullness is gone! So far I’m loving it much better than any moisture or facial oil I’ve ever used I really do recommend if you suffer from dry and dull skin even if you have psoriasis as it’s helped cover the redness.
    THE ORDINARY Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5( 30ml )
    This is the perfect staple serum for any beauty routine especially if you have dry skin. It does what it is supposed to do without the high price tag. I have backups of this kept at all times for when it runs out.
    Worked for me
    It is so easy to use and absorbs quickly to the skin. I used this after cleansing and toning my face following with THE ORDINARY COLD PRESSED ARGAN OIL. This combo is amazing for dehydrated and dry skin. My skin is not dry anymore, love it will repurchase it.

    Not impressed
    Has a sticky consistency and really didn’t notice any difference whilst using this. I have been using this for well over two months and honestly, do not see what is so good about it. I don’t mind though because the price is good. However, I will not be repurchasing in future.
    Not happy
    This product made my skin worse overtime so I stopped using it. It gave me small bumps in my skin and dried my skin out. Would not recommend this product for oily/combination skin.
    It's my new fave thing
    I'm obsessed. It can sometimes pill if I moisturise too quickly afterward but otherwise it sinks in quickly and I can feel a marked difference. It's also perfect to beat the post pool dry skin after I swim! I'll repurchase until I'm dead.
    This is REALLY awesome
    I think I could use that instead of a moisturiser during the warmer months. It's so good, it doesn't break me out, it is neither heavy nor sticky. It also acts as a perfect layer underneath the moisturiser in winter. You don't need to use much in order for it to work. Highly recommend this!
    I can't live without it!
    This is the cheapest and best hyaluronic acid I have ever used. So good for sensitive skin it actually helps my skin from being sensitive. Sometimes areas of my skin can feel sore and tight and flaky this really helps and stops this. I use it night and day and notice a difference in my skin it really plumps it up and gives amazing hydration from within when used before a moisturizer. I have tried a lot of products from the ordinary and this one is by far my favorite. I wish it came in a bigger size though.
    Not the Wonder Product I expected from reviews
    So this is a brilliant price and it is really good for my sensitive skin in the way that I had no reactions. Unfortunately this product didn't work for me. I am not sure if I have extra dry skin but I can't say it left my skin super hydrated throughout the day. I have used it for a month (as all new skincare regimes need a month to settle in) but it hasn't worked for me. One random hack that I found out though is that you can make any of your eye shadows into super lustrous eyeliners using this. Just add hyaluronic acid to the eye shadow and use a eyeliner brush to apply. As it doesn't cause any reactions with your eyes it's brilliant!
    This stuff is brilliant
    I have eczema and this stuff keeps it off my face. Its brilliant, my skin feels plump. I've used up my last bottle and currently waiting on a new one and my skin on my face is awful, tight and itchy. I know I need this to make the eczema go away. It lasted me a good five months. If you have eczema, I would recommend this product.
    Great hydrating serum
    I love this, and I wish it would come in 100 ml, or even larger like the Hada Labo Gokujun Premium. Super hydrating and plumping. Maybe not the most elegant formula out there, but it's absolutely great for the price.
    Mixed feelings
    I love how affordable this is, but I don't like the texture of this serum (I feel it pills sometimes), and it doesn't provide enough moisture for my dehydrated oily skin. If you're broke, try it out.
    Perfect for exactly what I want it for and that only
    Use this ALL the time, almost finished while other ordinary serums purchased at the same time are easily 3/4 full. It’s not the best hyaluronic acid for long-term hydration on deeper layers, but for a quick fix surface smoother it’s a winner. I also really love to slather hyaluronic on my lips and feel like doing that with anything more expensive would be a wee bit wasteful (makes ‘em swell up huge in preparation for a good lippy, or layered with eye cream and then balm to get rid of chapped lips overnight). If you’re chronically dry or dehydrated this won’t really help by itself, I think of it like a primer. Also, as with every Ordinary serum, STICKY.
    Already a staple
    I have only used this product for a short period of time, but it has already become a staple of mine. It's great for my sensitive dry skin, and i can really feel a difference. I feel that it is a product that has been missing on the market, and I love that it's so affordable.
    Price good
    This product is great! It's hydrating and I use it day and night as per the bottle. I've repurchased this already even though still on the first bottle which I've used daily for 2 months and still have 1/5 left. I'm in my 30's and have oily/combi skin so really trying to look after my skin. I'm trying out the rest of the range since it's so affordable for skincare.
    I can't believe how good this little bottle is for the price point. I have sensitive skin and am always nervous to try out new products. I've been using this morning and night for over two weeks under my moisturiser and I am absolutely amazed at how well it works. It leaves my skin feeling plump and soft with a healthy looking glow. I would highly recommend this and will be repurchasing. Can't wait to try out other serums by The Ordinary.
    Holy Grail Product
    I saw this on many influencers social media and thought I would give this a try. My skin is combo-oily and at 20, hormonal spots are real. I was a bit sceptical as to what this could do for me, but I am amazed. This along with an oil free moisturiser is perfect for my skin. I don't get oily anymore and my skin feels hydrated all day long. I use this morning and night and it has changed my skin amazingly, would highly recommend.
    Great, immediate effect, recommend.
    Damn good!
    I don't know what it is, but T.O. products are so amazing. I've tried many (EGCG - Buffet - Glycolic Toner - Retinol 0,5 in squalane - Niacinamide - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Vit.F - Moisturizing Cream - Mineral UV filter Spf 30...) and none of them upset me! This serum in particular gives deep hydration to my skin which is no more dull. And for this price... I'm in love!
    Best product ever
    My skin looks amazing and feels so soft. It makes a big difference in my routine. For sure a product to repurchase
    More than ordinary
    Having dry skin this product immediately hydrates and leave skin moisturised. I use it with another million products from the ordinary collection and people remark on how wonderful my skin looks.
    Great product great price
    This really makes a difference in skin appearance, my husband is using it too. Definitely delivers!
    Worth the money
    This is the first time I’ve purchased a serum. A couple of drops leave the skin feeling hydrated and moisturised, great before applying any creams/ointments. Would definitely recommend & worth every penny
    Will not repurchase
    I'm 54 with normal skin, and normal skin issues for my age too. Before this I was using Matrixyl + HA but I decided to give this one a try. It's too sticky and it doesn't deliver like Matrixyl did. In fact my vertical frown line seems to be reappearing! Back to Matrixyl for me.
    Fantastic every single The Ordinary products are!
    Hyaluronic Acid
    I'm young (let's just say under 20), and after a few uses, I don't really see much of a difference. Though to be fair, I've used it only about 5 times. It pills on my face if I rub it so I end up having to quite literally, slap it into my skin. It's sticky, and if I touch my face say, 15 minutes after applying, I can still feel it. Take what you will from this review.
    Good product.
    When I first used this I had problems with the product piling on my face when applied under other products. Now I use a lot less and no longer get this issue (Need to use the tiniest amount) This has helped my dehydrated skin.
    This stuff is amazing! I'm a complete sucker for potions so make my skin softer/tighter/brighter/younger etc etc so much so my bathroom resembles a beauty store. I stumbled across this little bottle of magic and thought it was cheap so why not. It works better than ANYTHING I have ever tried before! I mean really! the wrinkles on my forehead are smoother and my skin is tighter and softer. Absolutely well worth the money, give it a go!
    Awesome product
    It’s super light and hydrating! Great value for the price. Fragrance-free and very gentle.
    Everything The ordinary
    Honestly have been amazed by all of the Ordinary products I have purchased, and could not be happier with how much my skin has improved and for such a small dent in the bank!!! Would highly recommend trying anything from the Ordinary as it’s all relatively cheap anyway so if it’s not for you at least you haven’t wasted loads of money.
    I love this serum, I’ve been using it for about 7 months now and my skin is smoother, plumper and more hydrated. Now that it’s the summer I’m only using it once a day as I feel I don’t need it as much but in the winter I use it twice a day before my moisturiser and it keeps my skin well hydrated. For reference, I’m in my early 30s with normal/combination skin
    Good job
    Its taken me years to perfect my skincare regime as my skin is ridiculously fussy. This solves the issue of having dry skin but with a shiny oily nose and chin. Tinted moisturiser alone is insufficient for the dryness but if I add another moisturiser or serum everything gets shiny and slips off my face in the day. Now I just layer The Ordinary hyaluronic acid under the tinted moisturiser. My face is no longer dry BUT ALSO it doesn't make my nose oily but somehow sucks the tinted moisturiser neatly on to my skin so it lasts all day. Nothing fiddly in the ingredients to make my skin get angry so all is good. I'm on my 5th bottle.
    Good for oily face
    When you have an oily face, but it can still get dry, this is what you need. It's lightweight and it doesn't upset my skin.
    Amazing stuff
    I'm probably on my 5th bottle of this. Amazing stuff, super easy to blend into the skin and dries instantly, you don't need to use a lot at all. Makes my skin look and feel smooth and plump. Will forever repurchase!
    Great product
    Love this as the first step in my moisturising routine! It absorbs well and my skin feels hydrated right away. A lot of bang for the buck!
    Good basic hydrator
    It's a good starter for discovering HA but I find it pills on the skin. Prefer Hylamide's version & MMHC.
    Long lasting hydration
    I love this product. I have dry skin with pigmentation. I like the slight stickiness of this product, which absorbs immediately upon application. I use it in the morning and wait a couple of minutes after applying before putting on foundation and have not had any problems with pilling. I use 4 other Ordinary products (for approx 3 months), and I must say at the age of 50, (and after spending a small fortune on skincare throughout my life) that thanks to The Ordinary and Demarolling for better product absorption, my skin looks fantastic and has never looked better. ❤️
    Good product
    This product so far is good for my skin. My skin is way better now and no longer dry. However, it would be perfect if the texture of the products isn't as sticky. If I'm not mistaken they've come out with a better product which has the same purposes. It's called marine something if I'm not mistaken.
    Really good product
    Better to use it in a humid place like in the bathroom. Also as soon as it's soaked into the skin, need to apply moisturizer or other serum. Very good product for the price.
    This is great!
    Makes my skin very soft and very moisturized. I like that it doesn't have a scent at all. I have to agree with the other reviewers that it is indeed a very sticky product, but once you layer it with your moisturizer that feeling goes away. Will definitely repurchase this!
    The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
    Has a sticky consistency and really didn’t notice any difference whilst using this.
    Good but sticky
    This is just such a good hydrating product, but I find it difficult to apply a lot of the time as I find it so sticky. I worry that lots get wasted on my fingers which I rub into my hands, but I'd rather have this on my face! I didn't repurchase as I wanted to try a different one from another brand, but due to the price, I would get on with the stickiness and repurchase!
    Easy to apply, a little sticky but once dry it's fine. Sinks in quickly, the only thing I found it pills with is La Roche Posy effaclar duo. Made a nice difference to my skin, smoother, plumper and all my other products seem to go on better.
    I don't get it...
    I really don't know what I'm doing wrong with this but it piles like crazy on me. It's absolutely maddening. I love Hyaluronic Acid, I think it's THE best product for hydration out there but for whatever reason if I put anything at all over the top of this, even if I wait for ages and apply the recommended serum to follow on from it, it comes off in annoying rolls. I'm really disappointed as the price point is unbelievably good. I'd still recommend giving it a go just in case you're a lucky one that can get away with it, it's only £5.90 after all :) Good luck
    Definitely worth buying
    This product is super effective. I use it before moisturiser day and night and my skin is noticeably softer and more hydrated after just a few days. The only downfall is it is sticky, albeit not once applied.
    Love it!
    I started using this around Christmas time and I absolutely love it (so does my husband!!). I usually get dry skin across my cheeks during the winter but since I've started using this my skin is lovely and soft. I have only been using it in the evenings before my moisturiser and haven't needed to add it to my morning routine to see results. I will definitely be buying more!
    Great but sticky
    This product is extremely hydrating and sinks into the skin very quickly so that you can barely feel any product but you can notice the hydration. I like to use this after I cleanse and before moisturiser. It can also be worn underneath makeup. However, the product is extremely sticky and appears almost elastic. I did not expect this, and you can get more pricey hyaluronic acids which are more water-like in texture. I am also not a fan of the smell, but it's not too overpowering. Having said this, I do think that it is a great value product for the really good result you get, and definitely worth buying if you want a hyaluronic acid but don't want to spend loads.
    Wasn’t worth the hype for me
    I was so excited for this product but I found that after applying it in my evening skincare routine, my skin really looked no different in the morning in terms of hydration to how it normally did. I also found that after a few days the only thing that changed in my skin was that I had small bumps and uneven skin texture in certain parts of my face. I then stopped using the product and it went away, so I have to say that overall it really didn’t do any good.
    Not sure what to think
    The product feels good on my skin but isn't the miracle product I was expecting from reading these reviews. I expected more long-lasting moisture. But for the price, I will be repurchasing and I will continue using.
    My Love
    I have been using this for about 3 months now. This makes my face hydrated and I love my healthy skin now.
    Not bad
    Although this serum did not perform miracles to my skin, it did no harm it either. It's quite hydrating, not sticky and perhaps it's better for a dryer skin types
    Keeps my hands hydrated
    I put this under my handcream as I don't need the hydration on my face but get dry hands that get eczema. I have a prescription steroid cream but if I had this under my handcream the eczema disappears within a week. I have used a bottle in the last month.
    Best product ever
    I absolutely love this! I am on my second bottle now and recommend this to everyone I know! helps hydrate my oily/combo skin without looking greasy. On application, you can really feel the product absorbing into your skin rather than sitting on top of the skin so you know you are getting the best use out of the product.
    A wonder in a bottle
    Love this product! My skin has been loving it since I tried it 2 weeks ago. My face feels supple and not dry at all.
    The best
    The best hyaluronic acid serum I have ever used. Unbeatable and such an amazing price.
    Hylalurnic acid
    I've been using this product for several months now and find it amazing, it certainly does what it says on the can. Wouldn't be without it. I am so delighted with all the Ordinary products I have purchased. I still can't get over the cost. I used to spend a fortune on high end products that didn't work out as well for me. Thanks guys.
    Good product
    This is a good product that I have used.
    Exactly As Described
    I read about this product and have now used it for a month and I am very impressed with the results. Firmer skin, reduced wrinkles and under eye bags. Thoroughly recommended.
    Not long lasting hydration
    This is a HA serum I think is just ok for me. I would totally recommend using it instead of not using any hydrating serum at all. But the effect of this one is not as long lasting as other HA serums I have used on me, already at lunchtime I can feel surface driness again, with other HA serums it often feels hydrated longer into the day (Jordan Samuel, Dr Dennis Gross, Bobbi Brown Remedies to mention a few).
