I have very dry skin and this product changed my skin. My dry skin flakes were gone and my face no longer felt tight. This product is relatively cheap and the brand has a generous return policy.... Read more

Not very foolproof. The directions arent as straightforward as one would think. *Apply to a damp face! HA absorbs better when skin is still wet. *Only use 2-3 drops for your face! If your skin feels sticky, the serum turns foamy and white, or your layering products start to pill, you have used too much! Your face should feel hydrated not sticky... Read more

My face feels moisturized after applying it. I apply it right after washing both in the morning and at night. So I apply it while my face is a bit damp then work it into my skin my tapping it.... Read more

My skin burns when I apply this product. I thought it just takes some getting used to but I really think it isnt for me. I’ve been using it for 2-3 weeks now and Im breaking out, and it still burns whenever I apply it 😔... Read more

My first HA Serum 💙 +Bought this because of its affordability +My go to barrier lock-in moisture serum (I use this after I had used the peeling solution. It's important for me to hydrate my skin after I exfoliate) +I had many ways to use this. (I use this a long with the Niacinamide powder. It actually quite work in reducing sebum production because of the powder, because of its consistency (thick), it dries out the powder quickly. Thats why I prefered using the powder with the NMF) I also use this after I remove my sheet mask. +This one has a rich thick consistency that locks in moisture effectively. +I hadn't experience any irritation/redness from this product. I'll almost be running out of this. But I will be repurchasing it soon. Still trying to decide if I wanted to try other brand's HA.... Read more

Summary: Great everyday hyaluronic acid serum that adds hydration and works well with most other products. Details: The serum is clear and slightly thick but comes out of the dropper easily. You only need a small amount and when applied to damp skin I find it sinks in nicely. It's perfect for AM and PM and 2% HA is a good amount to keep the skin hydrated. If you have dry skin, always follow with a moisturiser. It's an inoffensive, affordable product that can be recommended to anyone, especially skincare beginners. The only mistake you can really make is take too much and end up with a sticky face. At 20€ per 100ml this product lies in the lower range of skincare products. The Ordinary is part of Deciem which is vegan and cruelty free. However, Deciem has recently been acquired by Esteé Lauder which is not cruelty free.... Read more

It can be sticky if you use too much. I know some people experience pilling (ie further products don't absorb as well) but I haven't noticed it. Make sure to only use it on a a damp face or with wet hands.... Read more

Stick to the basics? My first hyaluronic acid serum, I've used two bottles of this stuff up. I liked it, it was kind of basic, but for this price, you get a decent product, it didn't irritate me, got the job done.... Read more

I have found alternatives which work better for me, and I didn't really like how it acted with my moisturizer (turned it white). But I know it's a product I can trust.... Read more

I love this giant tub of hyaluronic acid! When my skin is feeling extra dry, I tend to use this all over my face and body and then layer a thicker moisturizer on top. HA is great for retaining moisture and this is an affordable option to include HA in your skincare routine!.... Read more

Been using this serum for 2 weeks and could notice my skin bright and hydrated since first use. This formula has different sizes of Hyaluronic acid that are able to penetrate the skin instead of just sitting on it.... Read more

The only bad things that are not bad at all is the consistency that some people might find a little bit tacky. But as I always spray some thermal water before I have no problem with this!... Read more

this one was my first experience. I thought that my skin needed more hydration since my skin was so dry at the moment. This serum was great for the job! I loved how the effect on me. When I layered an acid or even retinol, this particular ingredient was the perfect soulmate for those things. This one gave me the moisturized skin that I needed. Well, the price wasnquite affordable. The price point was still good and yeah, I loved this serum as much as I loved the niacinamide version. I would love to repurchase this product in the future...

Unfortunately, the texture wasn't that good. I felt like the texture was quite tacky. You needed to spread it out into your skin, but at the same time, the serum itself was too heavy for my liking.... Read more
