The Ordinary: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
About Hyaluronic Acid
Our skin produces hyaluronic acid naturally. It is a moisture-binder that draws moisture deeper into the skin, making it appear hydrated and plump. As we age, this occurs less and less... Topical hyaluronic acid, like this one, is an effective, albeit temporary, solution! Every skin type can benefit from hyaluronic acid use.
The Ordinary by Deciem The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% is designed to give multi-depth hydration. This is achieved by formulating the size of the HA molecule - meaning, the size of the molecule (low, medium, or high) determines its depth of delivery in the skin. If the molecule is too big, the HA will sit on the skin and draw moisture out. This formulation uses three forms of HA with varying molecular weights so that it won't draw water out of the skin, giving true hydration. Read more here!
My Experience I'm loving this product! Suggested use is morning and night and I have definitely noticed my skin absorbing oils and creams super quick - most notably when I use this product before applying my sweet almond oil before bed. This is when I would feel like an oil slick but in conjunction with this product, the almond oil is absorbed even before my head hits the pillow and my skin feels super soft without feeling oily!
This product might be for you if you find moisturizers sit on top of your skin, almost as if they aren't being absorbed. This product sucks moisture into the skin quickly and effectively. I've been using it for just over a week now and my skin feels and looks hydrated. Highly recommend!
