Hmm wouldn't purchase again
Would not purchase again even at this great price.
BEST !!!verified purchaserEveryone needs to get this- you will instantly feel a difference in your skin. My skin has never been more plump and hydrated, this is honestly the best.
Nice and hydratingThis serum is a great basic in my skin care routine. I combine it with the ordinary buffet serum and find my skin feels lovely and hydrated afterwards. I use this in my morning routine.
Instant HydrationBest friend for everyday hydration, I use in am and pm. My product I didn't know I needed!
Amazing for the price!This is a good all around HA serum, cannot beat the price and it layers really well, I use in the morning with a Vitamin B serum and in the evening after Retinol or AHA serum. Yeah probably not as active as a cosmeceutical HA serum, but its perfect to hydrate my oily skin and complement my more active serums
affordableit felt a bit too tacky when applied, and i didn’t find that it did very much to hydrate my skin, but it’s really affordable compared to other hyaluronic acids on the market, and it’s worth a try
take it or leave itI didn't see any improving effects at all, I expected much more from a product with high percentage of HA.
LOVEThis is my second bottle of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and I use it as a base for everything, I find my skin is retaining moisture better since I've been using it and at this price I don't think I'll ever stop!
Hydration Plus!Not greasy, easy to use and great price. Doesn’t pill your makeup. Can also be used to reduce stretch marks.
Glow time!verified purchaserI love this! My face is turning into a babies bottom! Essential for everyday!
Essensialverified purchaserThis was a such a cheap and easy addition to my skincare routine and I couldn't go without it. Love it!
EssensialThis was a such a cheap and easy addition to my skincare routine and I couldn't go without it. Love it!
SO GOODIt’s the best basic hyaluronic acid on the market, perfect for the 3 step moisture method, plus the added B5 has helped my skin in clearing over the last 3 months.
Wonderful!This is great to use if your skin is sensitive, dry, and/or damaged. It really elevated redness and sensitivity and helped my skin heal faster. It's also perfect to use in the morning to help your skin look more plump and hydrated, and adds a slightly glowy appearance to it.
Really wanted to like this productSaw all the reviews and hype about this product from The Ordinary however I did not experience a positive effect from it at all. It didn't really provide any hydration to my skin and sat terribly on my skin (both with and without make up) - it would just peel and feel really tacky.
A drink for your skinThe perfect product to add to any routine for hydration!
Simply awesome!I really like all of the ordinary products, great price, great quality and great results! But this is probably one of my favourites of their products. My skin is on the drier side and has difficulty taking in product and moisture but this has been working great for me! Would definitely recommend to anyone, even if you’re new to skincare
loving it so farI am enjoying most TO products. I am in my early 30s and have hormonal acne or I should say had, as TO products have done wonders to my skin. I use this serum am and alternate pm and it feels and looks hydrated. I figured out just 2-3 drops is enough or else it peels off with other products. will definitely buy again.
Confused?¿I used this product with nice plumping results for a few days and then it seemed to start drying my skin out more like it was sucking moisture out of it. So I looked online for answers, that’s when I discovered the ingredients in this product and many others from The Ordinary were questionable! I thought they were a company with integrity but there are some potentially dangerous additives to most ...Read More
Love itI have normal to dry skin and as we are approaching australian winter over here this has been a life saver in my PM regime. 2 drops goes a long way, it is sticky but if you pat into skin instead of rubbing and then layer a moisturiser/hydrating lotion after, it will serve you well!!
Good productGreat value. Leaves skin feeling a little sticky.
doesn't disappointI love this brand and this product, super affordable and effective skin care. my skin has seemingly improved quite a bit since using this and swapping over to all the ordinary products
Angelic hydrationObsessed. At $12.90, this product can't go wrong.
I use morning and night and leaves my skin feeling quite lush.
My skin just drinks this product and doesn't leave a residue that disagrees with my SPF and foundation.
Hydration quick fixI first heard about this product from an industry professional who carried it in his makeup kit to use on clients who needed a quick refresh before makeup application. I now carry this same product in my makeup kit when doing my freelance makeup jobs and also use it myself. I have pretty dry skin so I like to use this to refresh it, especially in the morning as it is not a heavy product and sinks ...Read More
My biggest recommendation for simple skincare routinesThe addition of hyaluronic acid into my skincare routine has been the biggest game changer to date. It is the only thing I have used that I have seen the reduction of fine lines. When my friends ask me for the 1 or 2 products they need to add into their routine this is my first recommendation (after SPF !)
I do find this product heavier than other The Ordinary serums, a little bit ...Read More
Game changerI use this with the moisturiser after recently moving to a very dry and hot climate. It has done wonders for my skin!
Love!I love this product. It melts into my skin and smooths ready for the next step of moisturising.
HmmmHydrating product but very sticky compared to many hyaluronic products I’ve tried. It’s a good price point but I didn’t really see that much of a difference, depends how much hydration you need.
Works wellVery affordable & does the job. I did find it to be a bit flakey once dried sometimes but overall good product.
A staple serumWhether you're expert or new to skincare and/or on a budget this is a must-have serum!
Who doesn't need extra hydration? Also great as it's sensitive enough for all skin types.
StapleEver since I started using this, it has become a staple in my skin care routine. I use this both day and night and my skin has never looked more hydrated. I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin and this does not irritate at all.
Really good!I really enjoy using the hyaluronic acid by TO. It is super hydrating and feels very nice on the skin. Also comes in a supersize bottle which is amazing given I go through this so fast.
HelpfulDries very quick, will be interesting to see how it compares to other formulas.
Overall my skin has been in good shape since using this
Dry skins best friendI love the Ordinary products and this was no different. My skin is thirsty and after one week I can see a difference in moisture levels I especially notice when I apply before bed my face is less liney in the morning
Huge improvement!Using with squalane cleanser and moisturising factors, I credit this product with the significant improvement in my skins hydration, softness and plumpness, and overall improved appearance. Feels light on the skin, absorbs easily, layers well under moisturising factors followed by makeup. Its magic.
Hmm wouldn't purchase againI have been recommended this product by so many skin-loving people so I was super excited to try it out (especially at this price point) however it fell a little short for me. I could not really see a difference in my skin as I could when I used other hyaluronic acid products. I should note it definitely did not do anything bad to my skin - personally it just was not for me.
Would not...Read More
Effective and Affordable!I was hesitant about purchasing this serum at first since I heard that hyaluronic acid draws in moisture from the environment and therefore if you live in cooler climates it may actually make the skin more dry. Considering the affordable pricing I decided to give it a go anyway and it worked wonders in keeping the moisture in my skin. My skin felt more supple and there was minimal flakiness.
Plump hydrated skinMy skin feels plump and hydrated with he use of this. I use this in conjunction with my other ordinary products and love how my previously dull and dry skin is now feeling and looking.
Best productA simple product does its job very well by bringing moisture to the skin from humidity and water. I find it works best for me when I apply it to a damp face after cleansing.
Absorbs into the skin very fast, the texture takes some getting used to at the start (personal preference).
The dropper is a great tool for product measurement, and this is one of those products I can't believe a...Read More
always love my HAthis is the cheapest HA i've tried, but still maintains that same quality. Very impressed, absolutely works a treat on my combo skin
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5This really transformed my skin and helped keep it clear and smooth. Since I’m in my 20s, I am now looking for products that will help with aging and this has been great to add two drops to my normal serum. Also, you can’t beat the price!
Great! But not the best hydration from TO for meFor the price and the effect on my skin, this serum is amazing. The packaging is compact and portable and I got months of use out of it.
I loved the hydrating and plumping effect that this product gave my skin, however the thick consistency sometimes left my skin feeling oily. The serum also pilled up as it was drying down if I wasn't careful with the amount I used. Sometimes the gluggy cons...Read More
good serum for the priceI bought this HA serum as a travel serum as I usually use skinceuticals ($$) HA intensifier but worry about losing or breaking it when travelling. The ordinary HA +B5 is obviously not as good as skinceuticals but for the price I can't fault it. It's effective and great value for money I will definitely repurchase for the same purpose of travelling again.
Great for a Glowy Skin LookThis product certainly helps with making my skin feel and look very fresh and glowy. It does not sting to use or anything like that, it simply is a brightening product. I have received numerous compliments on my complexion when I started using this.
Hydrates and softensBetween this product every morning and the 2% retinol twice a week my skin has become so soft and evenly hydrated. I use to get random dry patches that would mess up my foundation but no more! My skin is so hydrated (but not oily) and my makeup goes on so even! Love it, will repurchase.
Does the JobLove this under makeup to prep the skin. It is better at hydrating my skin than other more expensive alternatives I have tried. Important to apply it when skin is still damp - I use a face spritz first. Really missed this in my routine when it ran out (my other HA didn't work as well) so I will be restocking ASAP.
A favourite for a reason!This serum is an instant boost of hydration for my skin and leaves it soft and plump without a hint of excess oil. It's lightweight, a little goes a long way and is super cheap for the benefits it offers. You won't be disappointed!
HydratingI think it's a great product for an HA serum. It's basic, affordable and very hydrating. It leaves a tacky feeling after application, but I guess most HA serums are pretty much the same. Just for comparison, I even have the same tacky effect with my ELDW light which has HA in it. So yeah, that's normal.
Beware that some TO products will pill when layered, this is one of them. Other pr...Read More
GoodFeels light and great hydration
Very nice serumOnly need 2 drops depending on skin type. I use this twice a day and really locks in moisture in my skin. So nice to rub in and nice consistency. Would recommend.
This plumps my skin straight after usingI have fair, combination skin. I have been using this product for a few months and noticed it working straight away. I apply this after cleansing and follow with Jojoba at night or moisturiser in the day. I noticed that it plumped up my fine lines on my forehead and my skin feels very hydrated. The consistency is fine. I apply on damp skin and I have to wait a few minutes for it to completely...Read More
wonderful hydration!I have heard incredible reviews about the hyaluronic acid + B5, this product has not disappointed ! I bought it because my skin is normal/ combination skin with hormonal acne. I have previously used a similar product that cost 8 times the price and it did nothing but dry out my skin! The ordinary have delivered well! I feel so fresh and have only been using this for a week, my skin is supple and d...Read More
Incredible!This product is incredible and works wonders for my sensitive dry skin!
A stapleThis was the first product I tried from the ordinary and now I’m hooked! I love how affordable their products are. This has improved my dehydrated skin soo much
A little goes a long wayA little goes a long way. Leaves my skin feeling super soft and moisturised. Super affordable too which I love.
Absolutely love it!!It plumps my skin and leaves my skin radiant. It’s wonderful to use when my skin is slightly sensitive, and helps soothe it.
Great product & Great price!I purchased a number of The Ordinary products and when used all together my skins looks great! When I’m running short on time though during the weekday mornings I tend to just use this with my moisturiser and I love it. Makes my skin feel very hydrated.
Obsessed!!I used to work for a skincare company who used Hyaluronic acid in their serum and I really liked it but at a tenth of the price I did not expect the same thing from this and I would say it is even better. I cant fault it at all.
Most noticeable change in skin conditionI’ve been using this product for around 10 months and I can safely say that it’s made the most noticeable change to my skin - my skin is hydrated and more even-toned. I use it day and night, after cleansing and before my day or night moisturizers.
MehI live in Tas and I’m not sure, so far I don’t think it works well for dry skin in a dry climate, it makes my skin feel drier rather than more hydrated! Did some internet research and am now applying on wet skin and it’s less drying, but I doubt I’d repurchase. Dries super fast and easy to spread though
Locks in :)This product is very good, I use it in the morning to lock everything in and hydrate. You don't need to use a lot of the product, a little goes a long way. Worth trying if you are on the fence. :)
Best for its priceGood product for its price!
Recently using it in the morning along with Niacimide 10%+Zinc 1% under regular day moisturiser. Skin looks healthy but NEED that moisturiser after apply these product.
Don't touch or wipe face after it or you may end up exfoliating your face (it looks like you do exfoliating or just me? as I always wipe my face with joint elbow...) and ends up removing the...Read More
Best BuyThis feels like pure luxury on the skin at a bargain price. It brightens and improves complexion and a little goes a long way.
greatmakes my face feel tighter but very smooth and hydrated at the same time. Definitely recommend!
Such an amazing product for a great priceI’m so glad I was introduced to the brand and I can’t live without this . I use under moisturiser morning and night and my skin has never looked better
Absorbs really wellWhen you first look at this product the consistency is very sticky, but it absorbs into the skin really well. I have quite dry skin and I definitely feel like this has helped with keeping my skin feeling plump and hydrated throughout my days in an air-conditioned office environment. I apply this morning and night before my moisturiser and have definitely noticed a difference in my skin. And it is ...Read More
great productAbsolutly loved this serum, made my skin feel amazing
So hydratingI use this morning and night and have noticed my skin is considerably less dry and makes my skin so soft. I have just ordered my second bottle and will be keeping this in my skin care routine
BeautifulVery hydrating! My skin always feels so soft after using this!
great!so hydrating i think i like this better then cream moisturizers. it feels nice on the skin provides a nice natural glowly look without looking overly oily and heavy. would definitely repurchase
Such a moisturising serumI love this product! It feels so hydrating on my dry areas and settles in nicely with the moisturiser. I keep it in the fridge on hotter days here in Australia and it applies almost like an aloe Vera juice - so refreshing and calming.
Works so well!I have always struggled with whiteheads and oiliness on the T-zone. This product works so well in eliminating these problems! I can't believe the magic it does to my skin, and having 2% hyaluronic acid is a huge deal (most brands can't even have this high of a concentration). So affordable too!
Game changerThis isn't one of those "you get what you paid for" products. Packaging is sturdy, you get quite a lot of product for how much you need to use. But most importantly, it works. It has transformed my skin. I have combination skin and I no longer have dry patches OR an oily t-zone. My skin has been brighter and more even. Haven't had any issues integrating it in with my other skincare or makeup produ...Read More
LovelyMy skin feel so soft with this product.
Can’t go wrongThis serum is a bit tacky so it isn't the easiest to just slot into your skincare routine if you use several products but it is worth trying to include it if you can. It is instant hydration for your skin, it doesn't take long to spot results. Plumping skin and healthy looking in just a few days.
DreamyFave The Ordinary product. Small drop can hydrate my whole face, leaving me feeling very fresh in the morning. Using it with Niacinamide for a wonderful combo.
amazingOnly need a tiny amount drop to cover your entire face which is great, makes it last a long time. It's lightweight and very hydrating, which is all i need.
EyesI use this under and around my eyes and my eyes look so hydrated all the time. I use it on my lips too. It's great
PerfectThe price is amazing and the benefits are great. I use it every morning. It's very moisturizing and friendly to oily skin.

Love itOnly need a pea size drop to cover your entire face which is great. The serum is LOVELY. It's light and hydrating, which is so nice. it just melts into the skin and my skin looks SO good. Has really helped smooth my skin and reduce redness and pores.
Excellent for the priceIf you are on a budget then this is a really great serum for hydration. It has good results for the price point and gives a lovely glow
GreatI use this every single day and my skin is hydrated and plump. Affordable!!
My most favourite ordinary product.I could not live without this product. It has changed my skin and as I've got older and my skin drier it has really helped my skin retain moisture. I mix it with vitc in the morning and use it also at night after cleansing. I can't believe it's so affordable as well. Truly the most holy grail of skincare products
The product everyone needs!This acid is an absolute staple in my routine and it should be in everyones!
The price is amazing and the benefits are unmatched. It leaves the skin so supple and won't dry your face out, despite it being an acid. LOVE
Super hydratingI’ve been using the Ordinary products for a while and this is still my go-to for an extra boost of hydration. No conflicts with this product so easy to add in. I tend to use Buffet in the morning and this at night and it has really helped my dry skin
HydratingI use this every morning in combination with the ordinary niacinamide, and my skin has never been clearer or more hydrated.
Work together well as a pair!
Holy Grail product in my collectionI notice a difference in my skin texture just days after using this. I ran out of it and noticed my skin wasn't as nice and hydrated. A must have in my collection I will never not have this!!
Awesome productA huge fan of this! Sinks into my skin with ease. I use morning and night and have noticed my skin around my eyes looking a TONNE plumper. No awful smells and my skin loves it. Huge fan of this brand!
Better than any moisturiserI use this product in the PM - I wake up and notice my skin is feeling so hydrated and healthy looking. It is also such a gentle product that you do not need to be concerned when layering it with other products such as Glycolic or Salycilic acids!
Glad I purchased.
Goes well with derma rollingGreat product, no nasties. I used this during and after derma rolling - leaves my skin hydrated while it’s repairing.
Helped my rednessThis is a great HA serum it soaks in well, and doesn't leave a sticky feeling. I have been using this for two weeks now and can already see the redness going away from my face. For the price I think it's great value.
PlumpingVery hydrating serum! It soaks In very well and really plumps any fine lines from dehydration
I use it every night and have seen amazing results
Good entry level HAHydration isn’t a major concern for me but this is a good boost. Gave up trying to wear this under make up as it makes it pill which I’ve heard is pretty common. I’ll just use it at night with moisturiser for a hydration boost, or underneath retinol on alternating nights. Hard to go wrong with The Ordinary.
AmazingAmazing serum, seeps into the skin nicely and keeps it hydrated all day long. I have combination, sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it at all. Amazing value for money.
The bees knees!First serum I tried as was a bit nervous about using active ingredients on my sensitive skin. But damn! This stuff is amazing. Skin is soft all day! And you can layer it with many other ordinary serums which is great. Highly recommend! Will repurchase
Love my hyaluronic acidI love love love hyaluronic acid. It is so nice on the skin and gives it good hydration. I also love the price of the ordinary, can't go wrong with this product.
Not greatly effective, but worth the moneyI have found this product works best after you have exfoliated and when mixed with Pond's Dry Skin Cream. Although I have really oily skin, I am still prone to severe dryness around my mouth and nose during the winter - this product didn't exactly resolve this issue, but it did allow me to better manage and control it. The texture (plumpness) of my skin has vastly improved from when I first starte...Read More
Most likely I'm now hookedLovely hydration. My skin has cleared up so much in the short time I have used it. It feels super nice to put on. No odor. Feels dewey.
Had a weird reaction after applying sunscreen and then my usual BB cream which didn't stick. But I havent had the same problem with applying an alternative sunscreen.
I will definitely be purchasing more, and a bigger size if there is one!
FantasicI've been using this serum morning and night for a few years. Im almost 60 and receive many compliments regarding my skin. I use in conjunction with a vairty of The Ordinary serums , cleansers and moisturisers. Great value for money too.
Good value for moneyUsing the Hyaluronic Acid without the B5 and notice the difference. I use it under my moisturiser in the AM after my glycolic for when my skin needs some plumping
