Another day, another The Ordinary product review. Anyway, now having dehydrated skin, I decided it would be the perfect time to introduce some Hyaluronic Acid, an ingredient known for its hydration, into my routine. Yep, and I chose to give The Ordinary HA Acid 2% + B5 serum a try.
Taken from Deciem- "HA can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The molecular size of HA determines its depth of delivery in the skin. This formulation combines low- medium- and high-molecular weight HA, as well as a next generation HA cross-polymer at a combined concentration of 2% for multi-depth hydration. This system is supported with the addition of B5 which also enhances surface hydration."
The HA serum comes in a 30 ml glass bottle with dropper. Fingers crossed I don't tip it over, because I am hopeless when it comes to remembering to screw the lid back on. I know! It doesn't really have much of a scent to comment on. The serum has a fluid consistency, but not overly runny.
Since recently finishing the Ordinary Buffet serum (which I love), instead of opening my back-up, I replaced the step with this serum. I had read reviews on the Deciem website about the HA not absorbing well into the skin, so I apply the serum immediately after applying my essence, which currently is the Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner.
The serum absorbs quickly and I am left with soft, smooth and beautifully hydrated skin. I know it's not ideal, but I can't stop touching my skin. The last time I was compelled to keep touching my face was when I was using the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 serum is a win for me!
