The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is a hydrating serum, formulated with a combination of low-, medium- and high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid for a multi-dept hydration, along with the added vitamin B5, which enhances surface hydration.

The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 comes in a  milky-white glass bottle with a dropper and contains 30 ml. The product is transparent and has some viscosity to it, similar to the feeling of a snail mucin essence. It is unscented and is a hydrating product which offers hydration and makes the skin visibly plumper. It is recommended to apply it in the mornings and evenings, but I tend to stick to night time only, when I have more time to explore my skincare shelf.
I've been using it on and off for at least the past 6 months and find that it is beneficial for my skin, but I don't notice that much of a difference as when I'm not using it, so it's often left forgotten in the back of my shelf. When I do reach for it, however, I use about 2-3 drops of product, spread it across the skin that've toned/sprayed with a mist before. It leaves a noticeable tacky layer, and then follow up with a nice moisturizer. It does help to reduce flaky dry patches, but I don't notice it having much effect on the plumpness of my skin. It also locks in moisture and makes the skin somewhat softer and smoother. I've never notice it irritate my skin (cause acne, redness, etc) or pill up (in that case you're probably using too much product. In general I feel like this would work better with normal/dry skin, than mine (oily, dehydrated from acne treatments).

Overall I do like this product, but don't find it to be as special and magical as everyone else reports. I'll finish using up my bottle and then decide if it's worth repurchasing or find another alternative. Since it's pretty affordable I would say it's still worth trying out, if you're looking for a hydrating serum.

  1. Tvoji fotki s prikazom teksture sta odlični :D Meni je HA res odlična. Sem kupila še dve rezervi. Nekako opažam, da odkar jo uporabljam nimam nikoli suhih lusk. Tako kot si tudi sama napisala. Sama imam drugače probleme s tem, sploh pozimi. Zdaj pa več ne. Je pa res, da ni verjetno potem zate ni nek presežek, ker tako odličen efekt tudi ni. Jaz sem jo zdaj kar vključila v rutino in si več ne predstavljam brez :).

    1. Sem pri sebi tudi opazila, da imam manj suhih lusk, ampak mi tudi olja podobno pomagajo. Meni je tak ok izdelek, ni presežek, ampak ker je cena ugodna me ne moti toliko. :) Verjetno pa ne bom ponovila nakupa.
