The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid % + B5 Review

The Ordinary is a new skincare brand from Deciem which has received so much hype from beauty bloggers. I don’t think I’ve seen a bad review yet.

So why do us bloggers love the brand so much? They offer affordable, no fuss, effective skincare products. There is no fancy packaging or huge marketing advertisements, the quality of their products make them stand out. The word of mouth and people sharing their thoughts on the brand created a demand for their items.

I wasn’t very daring with the first product I bought from The Ordinary’s line up, I opted for the Hylauronic Acid 2% + B5. The ingredient Hylauronic Acid is found in plenty of skincare products, usually in serums or creams. It’s used by it can attract 10,000 times its weight in water, perfect for attracting moisture to the skin.

The Ordinary’s version of H.A is to be used like a serum, morning and night before your creams. I will usually cleanse, tone and then use this product, followed by an oil and my moisturiser.

The packaging makes for easy application as it has a dropper. I just squeeze the pipette for a few drops of product, pop this onto my fingertips and apply to the face. If you have ever tried Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair, it has a very similar texture, it’s silky but does dry down on the skin.
On its own, the Ordinary’s Hylauronic Acid is a great product but when teamed with an effective oil and moisturiser, it’s incredible. It enables my skin to drink the product up, achieving maximum results from the products I use in conjunction.

I found my skin looked more even and plumped when I used the H.A at night. It’s a product that all ages and skin types can benefit from. I find that Deciem’s website gives so much detail into the product and informs you about the ingredients and what they are aimed at.

The Ordinary’s Hylauronic Acid 2% + B5 is priced at £5.90/£6 making it very affordable compared to other H.A options on the market. 



  1. I'm currently trying a few products out from The Ordinary but SO gutted I didn't pick this one up xxx

  2. I was already interested in this, but when you likened it to the Estee Lauder advanced night repair, I was sold. I really need to try out The Ordinary, all of their products sound just stunning!
