Product: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

By: The Ordinary

Place to Purchase: Amazon 

Product Overview

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid is a fantastic skin hydration treatment that will be sure to give your skin that amazing shine and look everyone wants.

Moisturizing and hydrating your skin are very important factors for your skin care routine. Not only do they help you reduce some fine lines, damage and wrinkles that come with years of skin abuse, it will also make your skin look tighter and brighter.

Having your skin nice and moisturized is not only great for it to look bright and clean, it also means the skin barrier is much stronger to protect it from the environment, something difficult to accomplish when your skin is dry and flaky.

So taking care of your skin in this aspect is not only beneficial visually, but also to protect it from all the bad stuff in the air.

So now you have two powerful reasons to truly get you into the habit of having your skin nice and hydrated by moisturizing.

To those wondering; what is the correlation between hydrating and moisturizing? It’s simple, when you moisturize, keeping the skin hydrated means how much and how long your skin absorbs water to keep it moist (Yeah, I said it).


Now in case, you missed the title, this is where Hyaluronic acid enters. On this Study Review it was discussed how Hyaluronic acid has great properties when it comes to retaining water and its ability to make it easier to be absorbed by the skin. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water.

The study also discusses that the reason youthful skin retains all its beautiful properties is due to its ability to retain a high amount of water. With aging and the environment the skin loses its moisture and its ability to retain water hence, losing its brightness, tightness and seeing everything we see on the skin with aging.

Now this sounds like a perfect chemical to help keep our skin young and beautiful. Retaining water in our skin is the secret to keep it moisturized and Hyaluronic acid seems to be the perfect ingredient to do the trick.

Now that you know the secret on how to hydrate your skin, the question you most likely ask is…

Why This Product?

Some products just use Hyaluronic acid to boost the main ingredient, this product uses it as its main ingredient and Vitamin B5 as the boost.

Speaking of Vitamin B5 in this particular formula it is used to enhance the hydration, making this formulation very strong.

Despite its name The Ordinary is a great brand with trusted products and reviews.

Don’t let the small bottle fool you, you will only need a few drops to cover your entire face, so it will last you a while.

Reviews and positive feedback information are out there, there are many people using the product and loving it.

Works great on very dry and sensitive skin.

Vegan, Paraben-free, oil-free, no dyes, no fragrances or fillers and as a nice bonus, cruelty-free.

2% is the allowable amount to have of this chemical in liquid form, so you know you are getting the best concentration possible.

Tips and Tricks

When applying this type of product always try to wash your face beforehand. This means the product will be placed on a clean surface of the skin, making it easier to be absorbed.

While you’re at it, use a nice cotton towel to dry your face and use it only for your face, this assures a clean drying every time.

Before trying it and this should be practiced with all skin products. Do a spot check, basically put a drop on your arm and rub it. If it turns puffy and red, you might be allergic to the product and need to be careful. This sometimes happens as all skins are different.

Put one or two drops on your clean finger tip and apply it using a patting motion on the areas you want to attack. This is usually around your eyes and your mouth. The patting motion is to agitate your skin allowing absorption.

You can use it once a day, after washing your face at night or after a shower in the morning.

The little bottle should last you a while since you are only using a few drops at a time.

Like with all products, try it for a few months, in this case finish the bottle. Patience is very important as you will not see results overnight. If you notice little to no results, you can try another bottle or move on, please remember that skin products is a trial and error process until you find that perfect product for you and your skin, don’t give up!

In case, you need more tips, tricks and other helpful information on other products, take a look at the Acne, Scars page or the Red/Dry Skin page for other great skin performance products like this one.

Final Thoughts

Take a look at this great Hyaluronic Acid product over at Amazon. The number of reviews speak for themselves, all these people with a brighter and tighter skin to show off.

Here you have an amazing chemical to keep your skin young and beautiful. An amazing brand that is taking advantage of this great chemical and the thousand of users who can testify to its effectivity.

Our skin is one of our most important organs, not only because it protects us, but also it something everyone notices. With this product you can be sure to have a skin with fewer wrinkles, fine lines, that looks bright and moist (I said it again).

Why not give it a try? All you have to lose is not having a hydrated skin.

Just as always, any questions, comments or concerns please share, and I hope this product will help on your path to a Beautiful Clear Skin.

    Keeping your skin hydrated on a daily basis is so important to prevent pre-mature aging. Although I use moisturizer in the morning and in the evenings, there are days when I feel that my skin needs more then that. I especially experience a feeling of dryness when I have been in the wind. 

    I am not familiar with the Ordinary brand, but I do like the fact that there are no “nasties” in this hyaluronic acid and that it will be suitable for my sensitive skin. Thanks for sharing a great hydrating product for one’s skin.

    I’m glad that I read this article because I went years without really caring about my skin besides the basic soap and water lol. Now that I’m getting older I realized how important it is to take care of your skin. Will definitely consider looking into this product more deeply. Thank you for the info

      Hey Rafael,
      Many people pay too little attention to their skin until they start noticing things that weren’t there before, it’s human nature. But it is not too late, you can still remedy or stop the damage to your skin, so you’re good to do it now. This is a great product to heal some of those skin issues, hope it helps, thanks for reading.
