I have heard so many amazing things about The Ordinary products so I decided to take the plunge and pick one of them up for myself. After doing a bit of research into their different skincare products I decided to pick up the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, as my skin can become quite dry at times. I have been using the serum for about a month now so I thought I would share my view and experience on it.
My first impression of this product was it’s an amazing skincare serum for just £6. This serum feels quite sticky on your face, as you apply it, but it sinks in within a few seconds and leave you will silky soft skin. You apply the serum morning and night, before applying your moisturiser. I have noticed that over the last month that skin has looked so much healthy and I haven’t had any dry patched either. It will be interesting to see how my skin fairs up in the autumn/winter months, as that’s when I can get quite bad breakout of dry skin.
So what is Hyaluronic Acid & B5 and what does it do? The hyaluronic acid and B5 help to add hydration to your skin in two different ways. Hyaluronic acid can hold up 1,000 its weight in water and will add hydration under the surface of your skin. Most hydrating serums or moisturisers will only hydrate the surface of your skin, which actually means your skin will become dryer as you need the hydration deeper into your skin, for it to last. The vitamin B5 then enhances your surface hydration, with the two ingredients works simultaneously together to properly hydrate your skin and leave you with plumped healthy looking skin.
One of my concerns about this product was whether is would react with my skin, as I have very sensitive skin, but I am happy to say I have not had any problems at all. My skin has clearly improved since using this product and I am so impressed with it. The Ordinary have a variety of different skincare products and have now moved into foundations too. If you are on the hunt for products that work amazingly and doesn’t break the bank then you need to check out this brand.
If you have tried any of The Ordinary products out I would love to know what you think of them and which ones you have tried. I will be doing a spring favourite blog post soon, which this product will definitely be featuring in, so keep an eye out for that and I will see you very soon.
Have a lovely weekend!
