REVIEW: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5

Hi guys!

In today’s post, I’ll be doing another review of one of The Ordinary products.

I have this continuous struggle with fine lines, oily T-zone and dehydrated skin. Does this product help with hydration and fine lines?

Let’s find out!

Product Description

Hyaluronic Acid (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 crosspolymer at a combined concentration of 2% for multi-depth hydration. This system is supported with the addition of Vitamin B5 which also enhances surface hydration. A more advanced HA formulation with 15 forms of HA, including precursors of HA, is offered by our brand NIOD in Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex.


This product comes in the usual white dropper and glass bottle packaging which I think is great to prevent contamination.

The hyaluronic acid has a consistency, between gel and liquid. It sinks into the skin beautifully so I really like the consistency.

This product is AMAZING for skin hydration. It plumps the skin so well and my skin looks smoother. My fine lines aren’t completely gone but they are far better.

I also like that this layers well under other skin products.

Some people have complained that it peels or crusts and that happens when you use too much product. Two meager drops is all you need.

I think this surface hydrator is best for normal to combination skin. If you have oily skin, you should go with Hyaluronic Acid with squalane as this one(with B5) may be a little too hydrating. Also if you’re super super dry, The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing factors will serve you better.


I love, love this! It is super good for skin hydration, especially for my skin type. I think it balances my skin just right, especially after I’ve used my Glycolic Acid Solution.

Price: $10.90/ N5500
