The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another skincare product from my recent haul from The Ordinary – the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. All info in italics is taken from their website.

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.


Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Panthenol, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Propanediol, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Citric Acid, Ethoxydiglycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin.

The Ordinary HA 2% + B5 Serum

My skin loves Hyaluronic Acid products. I really love this one, for two main reasons – the first being the price ($6.80 CAD), and the second being that it has no scent. Add to that, the product is cruelty free (and vegan). It is a great way to add extra hydration to my skin. It plays nicely with other skincare products (and makeup).

This one is a keeper for me!

Have you tried this Hyaluronic Acid serum? What is your fave?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Oz Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review

Today I’m reviewing Oz Naturals’ Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I’m nearly finished my first bottle that I purchased in July, and I re-purchased my second bottle last week.


Here’s a bit of information taken directly from the Oz Naturals website:

  • Plumps and hydrates dry, dull skin

  • Assists in balancing skin moisture levels

  • Speeds up skin-cell turnover, keeping new and healthy skin on the surface

  • Diminishes surface lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen

  • Naturally lifts and firms sagging skin


Before using this serum, I had been using the Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster from Paula’s Choice (review is here), so I was familiar with the the weird not quite a liquid, not quite a gel consistency of this type of serum.


So after using this serum for almost three months straight, I can honestly say that my sensitive skin did not have any problem whatsoever with this product. It works really well at hydrating my skin, and it seems to be reducing my fine lines over time. A further bonus is that while it helps in keeping the skin hydrated, it doesn’t make my face greasy, and it works well with primer, BB / CC cream, as well as with powder foundation. A further plus is that it has very minimal scent.


The main ingredients are: Hyaluronic Acid (hydration, moisturizing), Vitamin C (antioxidant, collagen production), Wild Crafted Green Tea (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory), and Vitamin E (circulation, healing, cell regeneration). As well, this product is:

100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
