Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
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 Deciem brand NIOD in Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex.
Note: Hyaluronic Acid is found in the skin naturally but its natural function within the skin is not hydration. Many products have used HA to claim hydration benefits, but HA is too large of a molecule to penetrate the skin and instead sits on the surface and can draw moisture out of the skin making the surface feel soft and hydrated temporarily, while making you feel like you need more HA after the product is rinsed. This formula uses three forms of HA with varying molecular weights, as well as an HA crosspolymer, to offer multi-depth hydration and visible plumping without drawing water out of the skin solely to improve temporary surface hydration.
Review(s) on The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5:
"I’m loving The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. I have dry skin and every time I use foundation, after 2 or 3 hours I can see the dry patches on my cheeks and around my nose. I have used DIY hyaluronic acid in the past without any luck. The last time when I was placing my Ordinary order I ordered Hyaluronic acid and I was amazed with the results, how my face glow all day, with or without makeup. I use Hyaluronic acid with 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder in the morning right after I shower, and moisture is locked for the rest of the day. After reading some of the reviews about pilling, I was afraid to use it under my makeup, but I don’t have pilling problem so far. I only use 3-4 drops of Hyaluronic acid with ½ a spoon (a small spoon came with it) of 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder. I use 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder twice a day, once in the morning with Hyaluronic acid and 2nd at night with Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%. I would repurchase the products from Ordinary with very affordable price." - LT (from theordinary.com)

EFFECTIVE AND HYDRATING
I've known this product by watching a Youtube channel named "Liah Yoo" and I was a bit hesitant buying this product considering I have a an acne-prone skin and kind of pricey. I'm kind of afraid of it's reverse used I've heard if you live in a place that's kind of dry. Nonetheless, I tried purchasing the product and it works great. Very effective and hydrating!
When I saw this products I'm very hesitant since I've been using lots of beauty products and this one stand out. Its very useful as well after my derma pen session.

Just for a span of two weeks I noticed a wonderful improvement on my face,my skin stayed dehydrated,supple and calm ,it reduces my acne spot and lighten my skin tone.. it does what it says.. ;) and I'm in love with it.
