5 Stars for Value


I purchased this after seeing all the great reviews. I have to say it was great, not as great as expected. Skin felt moisturised but not overly. I think the price of the product got it to 5 stars.

Most Helpful Criticism

Not a bad moisturizer


I bought this on the back of the great experience I had with the buffet and HA.
This isn't the most hydrating moisturizer I've used, but it wasn't the worst. It left my skin feeling soft, but not very "hydrated". I think works better if you apply a serum before hand.
  1. Hydrating & Refreshing


    I started out with Buffet but kept hearing good things about this serum too. It's lightweight, and although a little sticky after application, it dries quickly. My skin feels soft and hydrated all day.

  3. I finally love it


    I struggled with this product at first. My last HA was really watery so i struggled with the consistency of this one, and I had a lot of trouble with it pilling when I layered other things on top. But I've now figured it out! When i use it after actives, and before moisturiser I don't have any trouble with pilling. Also, I've been having MAJOR trouble with dry, peeling lips over the last few month...

  4. Favourite The Ordinary product so far


    I've used this for a few weeks both day and night alongside the The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 30ml and it has really really helped in hydrating my skin and preparing a proper base!
    Weirdly enough I like the scent of this (even though it's not fragranced). It hydrates so well without being sticky (really good for winter) and has really helped with smoothing complexion and reducing re...

  5. Super Hydrating


    Love this as a little add on in my serum routine. Great for starters and sensitive skin
  6. My favourite product from The Ordinary so far!


    I love this little bottle of goodness! It's so easy to apply and my combination skin feels instantly refreshed and plumped up after I use it.
  7. Simple and Successful


    This serum is a solidly good, I never reacted to it, its nice and green, and it has, I believe, helped to keep my skin balananced. It's not very acne clearing but good levels of hydration this achieves defintely helps nonetheless. A little goes a long way, it has a pleasent scent, and The Ordinary is definitely affordable. I'm repurchasing because its nice to have something between your skin and y...

  8. So hydrating


    I use this twice a day and honestly leaves my skin feeling so smooth and hydrated. It is so affordable, would recommend!
  9. use in combination


    More effective when used with straight hyaluronic serums in addition, otherwise can be too drying, best to cover after a minute or 2 with a very good moisturising cream.
  10. Another good The Ordinary product


    Great hydration, sticky solution so be careful with application. I use this under my nighttime moisturiser twice a week, alternating with the buffet.
  11. The key to hydration


    I started using this product in 2018 as I had extremely dry skin on my nose and oily skin everywhere else. The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid has helped so so much to help keep my skin moisturised, especially in the winter months. 2 years later, I continue to add this to my shopping cart and use it DAILY. I would recommend this to anyone who needs some hydration that lasts throughout the day. The pack...

  12. Nice product


    I would buy this again it covers well and doesn't leave my face sticky. I use a mist before and after.
  13. Great with a moisturiser


    I like using this every few days of the week, and everyday in colder weather. I does pile if you add too many products at once, I like to pat on my moisturiser or oil after using it, I wake up with fresh looking skin
  14. Love this!


    I usually have sensitive, acne-prone skin. I've been using this for the past 6 months. I'm very satisfied with the result. My face looks moisturized and my skin tone has improved. I also used other products but this one is a must-have.
  15. Great!


    This is great for your skin and your budget. Yes, there are better ones out there but this is a great alternative and you can find it in the drugstore too. Can't go wrong! Let it dry before applying other products!
  16. The only product of the brand that works for me


    The only The Ordinary product that works for me. Honestly, not a fan of The Ordinary products because they don't work at all on my skin. But this hyaluronic acid shows instant results.
  17. Super hydrating


    At first I was a bit iffy on using this product but after a few weeks I realized just how much my skin needed this. I use it both AM and PM and my skin, after just a few weeks' of use, feels 'baby soft' (as the husband says!!). Nearly finished my first bottle, will definitely be repurchasing.

  19. Repaired my dehydrated skin


    I have spent my whole life thinking that I had really oily skin, and until 6 months ago, would strip it with harsh physical exfoliants and cleansers daily in an attempt to control breakouts and oiliness. After educating myself over the last 6 months, I realised that I probably had dehydrated skin and that I had been damaging it for years. I started using this product and have had my suspicions con...

  20. So hydrating!


    Helped my super dry, red and sensitive skin regain moisture. I put it on damp skin and find that works best! Just about to order my second bottle so it comes before I run out because I don't want to go without it.
  21. Skin felt softer, but not visibly plump


    I was drawn to the low price and the mostly positive reviews of this product. I have combination to dry skin, so I'm always looking for products that encourage hydration and moisture. I found this product didn't start working on my skin until about 4 weeks of regular morning and evening application before moisturiser. My skin does feel softer, which is nice, however I don't notice a significant c...

  22. Can't live without HA... this makes it affordable!


    I've been using HA religiously in my skincare for years, however, recently needed to scale back some costs - this HA is amazingly priced and high quality HA!
  23. Great addition to my routine


    I use this under my nighttime moisturiser and have noticed a difference in how clear my skin is. I love this!
  24. Cant go without


    I have used the Medik8 brand similar serum so i thought id give this go. I didnt see the same results as quickly but it still an amazing product that I will now always buy. At first it was hard to get the balance right to how much I would put on my face as it would make my skin go flaky. So less is definitely more :)
  25. Love it


    Love this, it’s done wonders for my face in a short time. I feel hydrated and my skin looks smoother whenever I use it.
    Yesterday my boyfriend said my skin was glowing!
  26. Great serum!


    This serum leaves my skin feeling really hydrated and smooth. It’s not too heavy and sinks into the skin quickly. I use it after buffet. The ordinary products have left me feeling like I’ve had a facelift to be honest! Love them, wish I’d been using them earlier! Next time I’ll order the supersized.
  27. Fave!!!


    Leaves skin firm and soft the next day been using this for months

  29. Great product, amazing price!


    Love this product! Skin feels so hydrated & plump. Fab price point too.
  30. It's good but not the best


    For effects, it did give me a good plump and very hydrating but what i don't like is the texture. The product is very watery and then becomes tacky and sticky on my skin after applying. And waiting for the product to fully absorb into my skin takes forever. It's fine if I don't apply sunscreen or foundation on top, but if i apply sunscreen and foundation on top, my face tends to pill and i can see...

  31. Dislike this product


    Personally I did not like this product. The texture is thick and did not hydrate my skin at all. Also broke my skin out.
  32. It just works


    I would describe this as an entry level serum but it definitely works to give that plump look and diminish fine lines. Short answer is it works. I keep thinking about buying a more up market HA product but can’t get past this one because of the price point.
  33. The best of the best


    Don't spend hundreds on a hyaluronic acid, this is the one. I first started using this product almost two years ago and I have never looked back. It's also particularly great for hungover, dry skin!
  34. Not too bad!


    Not the best Hyaluronic Acid I've tried but great for the price.

    A little goes a long way! I've noticed when layering this product with other products during my skincare regime it tends to pile up into rubbery balls. To prevent this i've started using less and letting it soak in properly prior to using other products and it's been great!

    Not the best hydrator for my skin...

  35. Great price!


    I really like this product. I was using another acid recommended by my dermatologist but for the same amount (30ml) it was 7 times the price! If I directly compare the two products I find that this brand does not smooth over my skin as nicely and leaves a very temporary stickiness on my skin that the other product did not. I'm talking 10secs max of this sensation. I have to use a little more of t...

  36. Sinks in quickly and lasts forever!


    2 drops is all I need to cover face and neck. It sinks in quickly and evenly.
    Definitely noticing less wrinkles when using and also how bad they look when I don't.
  37. Love this


    When it starts getting cooler, my skin gets so Dehydrated and dry! A couple of years ago I used to use Night repair however thought I’d give this a go since there was so many amazing reviews. It makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated. I love it and a little goes a long way. Will definitely repurchase.
  38. Effective, Affordable - Amazing


    Great hyaluronic - affordable and effective. Thick in texture, easy to spread and very hydrating. I use after The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane.
  39. The first serum I have actually liked


    I have tried a few different serums over the years and never found one I really like or felt worked. I can definitely say that since I started using this a month ago, I can definitely notice the difference. It makes my skin feel hydrated and soft and I am really happy with it. Keen to try other products in the brand now as I was initially a little skeptical because they were so cheap - but I'm def...

  40. Fantastic serum


    I use this morning and night and it hydrates instantly!
    Easy to use, great texture and fragrance free.
    Such a reasonable price for this must-have serum.
  41. Be careful with sensitive skin


    I'm not quite sure why but when I added in this product to my normal night routine (which really isn't much because i dont have many skin concerns) , my skin reacted with red spots the following day. This was the only new product i had started using, and after i stopped using it my skin has gone back to normal, so it's highly likely that it was due to this. But i do have quite sensitive skin. So i...

  42. pretty good!


    this had made my skin feel really soft, and definitely evened my skin tone and smoothed the texture. only bad thing i've noticed is that it makes my skin peel a little bit (like an exfoliator) but it isn't much of a hassle, i just use it at night only
  43. love it


    I am really enjoying this product, on to my second bottle. I can have sensitive skin so I'm never sure when I try a new product how I will react, but this has been great. I use it day & night as well as use it to dissolve my vit c powder ( the ordinary L-ascorbic) in. It leaves my skin looking plump and dewy. It doesn't really have any smell. i like the simple packaging and the great price. Will b...

  44. Hydrates without leaving skin sticky


    This is my first time trying a hydrating serum and it met my expectations so well. I loved how easy it glides over your skin and I could barely feel it on my face when it settled. Not only does it hydrate, it leaves my skin feeling just right without it being sticky or looking oily.
  45. Sleepless-Student Lifesaver


    I have been using this for a week now, and already have had an overall brighting of the eyes. I love this product and will 100% be refilling when it runs out. I did have an issue with the lid of the first bottle, but I received a replacement and the Adore team were beyond helpful. Love everything about how easily it incorporates into my skincare routine!
  46. Good barain for serum


    I need a serum that not only makes my skin feels hydrated but looks hydrated as well, this one does its job . Everybody has been complimenting about my skin ever since. Very recommended.
  47. Good product, the packaging not so much


    The product is good and very straightforeward...... however the dropper doesn’t close properly which very annoying...
  48. A genuine product.


    Another product from the Ordinary which I love, it actually works and makes your skin look and feel brand new. A big must.
  49. Light weight and hydrating


    Like a drink of water for the face
  50. Fabulous serum


    I use this product twice daily, and it has been very beneficial in adding some much needed moisture to my slightly drying skin.
  51. Same as higher priced versions- cannot fault it


    I have bought other brands for over $125 and this one is just as good. Could not recommend more. Lovely feel to the serum also.
  52. best serum for oilyskin


    i was skeptical at first since i also had blemishes on skin but this was not irritating one bit i really enjoyed using in combination with the salicylc acid serum
  53. Perfect for dry/normal skin


    Hydration has always been a concern for my skin, which is typically dry to normal. I find that this product evenly hydrates my skin without being too indulgent. I've been using it twice a day for a few months and am so happy with how healthy my skin looks! Plus it lasts ages. Such good quality.
  54. Amazing Product!


    I’ve been using this product with a few other things and they’ve all helped me tremendously! It’s so gentle on my skin and leaves it feeling great and making my face brighter! I love using this product so much and recommend it highly!
  55. Must have


    I really like this, it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and I can tell it is making a huge difference. Price is also absolutely amazing, will forever keep repurchasing.
  56. Great initial results but then plataued out


    I first started using this on red, itchy skin (eczema related).. It's got a slightly strange texture, but nothing offensive, it did help the redness go down, slight burning feeling on where there were cuts/scratches- but it was tolerable. I also started to notice some of the darked pigmented areas getting lighter.
    It was great- but then the results plataued out - however in saying that I al...

  58. Very happy! Hydrating and great price!


    My skin is oily but very dehydrated (with the lucky addition of acne and peri-oral dermatitis) and I therefore always have difficulty finding products that moisturise and hydrate that don’t worsen my oilyness (meaning more pimples and acne for me). I’ve now been using this product for just under a month (after cleansing and then apply a moisturiser) and my skin already appears and feels more hydra...

  59. Every time I stop using this I regret it


    I love this serum. I always come back to it. It not only hydrates my skin but reduces the appearances of minor blemishes.

    Every time I stop using it I wonder what is wrong with my skin and turn right back to it! I am sometimes tempted to buy something a little more bougee, but this is the best.

    A must have
  60. Unsure


    I have been using this product for several weeks now & am unsure if I notice any differences. It feels great on the skin, a little sticky and can foam up if not applied correctly. Will keep using until bottle is finished
  61. Life changing!


    This product was my first introduction to The Ordinary's serums, acids and oils and it has honestly changed my entire skin. I suffer from dull & dry skin, and after using this every morning after cleansing & before moisturising my skin is glowing all day. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
  62. Amazing product!!!!


    This product has drastically changed my skin and is one of the best serums I have ever used. It is very moisturising and leaves my skin SO fresh and light after using. I use this after my toner which is The Ordinary's 7% glycolic acid toner. This has benefited my skin a lot and I love it. I also really like the simple packaging.


    i’m obsessed. this product is amazing. i love it so much. ive struggled with dry skin and acne for a long time and this product is assisting both! i’m using it along side the niacinamide product and it is helping me have such glowing nice skin.
  64. Unreal product


    I love this serum! Feels so nice on the skin and I find it really helps my moisturiser absorb better
  65. 'go to' product


    I heard someone talk about this so i wanted to see what it was about, and its just such a good product to be used before makeup, before sunscreen, before night cream,
    its just to easy to use and the benefits are amazing, when i dont use it, my skin always feel a little dryer than it did when i used it
    onto my second bottle!
  66. Fantastic


    Use this every morning and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. Definitely good value for money.
  67. Hydrating but Tacky


    I have been using this product for about a month now, and have definitely noticed an improvement with my skins hydration. However, the texture of this product is quite tacky and does not completely sink in to the skin so I cannot wear it under foundation etc. and sometimes this causes it to pill. Other than that, for the price its good at hydrating the skin.
  68. Nice!


    This is a nice daily serum for hydration. The formula applied nicely and I haven’t had any troubles using this with other serums and products.
  69. Awesome product!

    Every time I’ve used this, my skin is super plump and perfectly moisturised. Honestly can’t believe the amazing quality for how affordable it is. Will keep repurchasing forever!
  70. Added hydration


    I started using this recently because I started getting some breakouts and the use of acne products was making my skin quite dry. I have found it really helpful for minimising dryness without adding any oiliness, sensitivity, or making my breakouts worse. I use it as the first step in my routine morning and night, and when I skip it I really notice the difference in how much dryer my skin gets. De...

  72. Good serum


    This is a nice serum, goes on quite sticky but feels great once you add moisturizer over the top. Has made my skin really dewy and glowy since using.
  73. Great repairing and hydrating serum


    I purchased this serum as a newbie to serums as it is pretty difficult to mess up. It is exactly as advertised, a simple, hydrating and repairing serum. I recently repurchased this serum post skin needling treatments and it was really soothing and nice to use.
  74. Tightens & brightens


    Use this everyday religiously! It tightens and smooths out my lines. Can’t live without it! Try using it on your hands the difference is amazing
    I have super sensitive skin Never once have I reacted
  75. Nothing exciting about this serum


    I am Asian, in my late thirties with dry skin. I use other "The Ordinary" products which I love, but this serum is really... just ordinary. It smells like nothing which is not a bad thing. It is sticky at first and then evaporates into nothing. The dropper bottle is cute but the squeezy part of my dropper came loose after a week. The serum has done nothing to alleviate my dryness. In fact, aft...

    This is defiantly a must have active. I do a 3 step moisturizing method- water, HA and my moisturiser for best results. (@olenabeley) and it works legends!! Been through many and will repurchase forever.
  78. cleared my skin!


    I ordered alot of the ordinary skincare and this acid has significantly changed my skin. it did take abit over a month to see the changes but i am alot more confident now with my skin and dont even wear makeup anymore - which is something i never used to do.
  79. best serum for oilyskin


    i was skeptical at first since i also had blemishes on skin but this was not irritating one bit i really enjoyed using in combination with the salicylc acid serum
  80. Great results


    Previous HA products I've used have made my skin feel tight afterwards - in a dry way. Whereas this applies and makes my skin feel like its absorbed the watery texture, and also looks glowy. Wish I had saved my money on previous products that are $$ and just started with this!
  81. A good basic serum


    This is a good option if you are on a budget. I always have one on the go to use inbetween the times when my more expensive one has run out, or I want it to last longer! The ingredients are brilliant, it’s just the formulation that’s a bit clunky-it’s pretty sticky and can pill if you use too much or don’t leave it to dry long enough. Definitely hydrating, just not my number one.
  82. UM WHAT


    I am soooooo impressed with this! I have bought a hyaluronic acid for over $100 before, and TBH this one is better!!
  83. Great budget product for hydrated skin


    Love this! Such a great affordable product to help boost hydration. I find it applies really well to the skin, and helps keen my skin plump and well hydrated. Would recommend this product.
  84. Brilliant


    It’s gorgeous and pampering. Feel glowy and moisturised each time I apply. It’s gentle and suitable for sensitive oily dry skin. One of the top ordinary products for me
  85. Great for keeping my skin hydrated


    I've found that my skin looks and feel a lot plumper since starting to use this product! Always top up with a moisturiser because HA will dry your skin out if you don't top it off, and it's perfect alongside my Vit C serum in the morning.
  86. Affordable and does the job


    I brought this to replace one of my more expensive serums and it really does the job! It works really well when you layer it with another product ie a thicker cream. I have really dry skin and this does the job. Only thing is it is slightly sticky
  87. Assists with hydration


    I have combination skin; oily in the T zone and dry and flaky on my cheeks. I have started to use this before I moisturise in the morning and have found my skin to be even and hydrated for the full work day.
  88. Perfect for the man in your life


    I have been trying to get my husband into skincare for yonks, and this has finally done it! It's lightweight and so doesn't seem like "skincare" to him. He uses it religiously and says it leaves his skin feeling "good". I've personally moved on to other hyaluronic forumlas, but this is an excellent reliable formula that is such a good price, readily available and does a great job at hydrating.
  89. Love it


    I have combination skin so this works really well for me easy to put on feels amazing and my skins never felt better
  90. Moisturising but tacky


    This was my first venture into cosmeceuticals, as I wanted a gentle ingredient with proven efficacy. Although this is nicely moisturising, it left a film on my skin with even the tiniest amount of product, and I couldn't find a way to make it not pill up under my sunscreen. I game my mother a bottle to try, and she loves it and doesn't have the tacking/pilling issue, so it may be more beneficial f...

  91. Didn't live up to the hype


    I bought this because of all the fantastic reviews but it really didn't live up to hype. It was very watery when expelled from the dropper but then so tacky when applied to my skin. I'm not sure what I was expecting but I'm glad I didn't pay more for this.
  92. Very effective


    Immediately worked on my 65yr skin, smoother, and much more hydrated. I use it with The Buffet. Very impressed.
  93. Excellent


    Such an easy affordable way to add hydration to your skin, great to use straight out the shower and pat on to damp skin to retain moisture before locking it in with a moisturiser
  94. Simply Amazing!

    Ally J

    This is a great moisturiser! I use this as part of my night skin care routine and gives a boost to my complexion. It leaves it looking slightly shiny but feels soothing when it sinks in.
  95. Plumping and moisturising


    For the price point, this product is great and exactly what I was after. I tried a sample of the Medik8 Hyaluronic Acid prior to purchasing this and must admit, the texture is comparatively quite tacky. However, once it absorbs and after applying sunscreen, there is no residue and I find it gives my skin a hydrated, more plump appearance.
  96. Amazing for dry patchy skin


    i have dry patches that rear their ugly heads, especially in winter, I apply this all over after cleansing with a gentle cleanser and my skin looks normal again. It also stops the patchiness and caking under makeup!
