The Extraordinary Results Of Great Skincare | The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%, Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 & Marine Hyaluronics

My Skin always seems to become really dry and de-hydrated during Winter, which means that i’m always on the lookout for anything that will return it to it’s soft and hydrated former self. That’s why when I had heard that The Ordinary had added a couple of products to their incredibly affordable Skincare range, I obviously had to try some of them out. Well after browsing their website for a good half an hour, I eventually picked up a bottle of the Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%, a bottle of the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, and a bottle of the Marine Hyaluronics , and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what The Ordinary say about all three amazing products.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%.

Lactic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid that exfoliates the Skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian Pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation.

This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with Acid use. This derivative is of Plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time.

Contraindications.

Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised Skin. Please refer to additional Sun Protection notice and other warnings provided in the product Directions.

  • Ph. 3.60 – 3.80.
  • Alcohol Free.
  • Oil Free.
  • Silicone Free.
  • Nut Free.
  • Vegan.
  • Gluten Free.
  • Cruelty Free.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in Water. The molecular size of Hyaluronic Acid determines its depth of delivery in the Skin. This formulation combines low-, medium- and high-molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, as well as a next-generation Hyaluronic Acid crosspolymer at a combined concentration of 2% for multi-depth hydration in a water-based formula. This system is supported with the addition of Vitamin B5 which also enhances surface hydration.

Note.

Hyaluronic Acid is found in the Skin naturally but its natural function within the Skin is not hydration. Many products have used Hyaluronic Acid to claim hydration benefits, but Hyaluronic Acid 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 Hyaluronic Acid after the product is rinsed. This formula uses three forms of Hyaluronic Acid with varying molecular weights, as well as an Hyaluronic Acid Crosspolymer to offer multi-depth hydration and visible plumping without drawing water out of the Skin solely to improve temporary surface hydration.

  • Ph 6.50 – 7.50.
  • Alcohol Free.
  • Oil Free.
  • Silicone Free.
  • Nut Free.
  • Vegan.
  • Gluten Free.
  • Cruelty Free.

The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics.

Marine Hyaluronics brings together lightweight Marine-derived Water Reservoirs that attract and hold Water like Hyaluronic Acid (HA) but are lighter in texture and feel. The formula contains Exopolysaccharides from skin-friendly Marine Bacteria, Hawaiian Red Algae, Glycoproteins from Antarctic Marine sources, micro-filtered Blue-Green Algae and several health-supporting Amino Acids. All Marine Derivatives in Marine Hyaluronics are sourced sustainably. The total concentration of active ingredients in this formula is 23%.

This formula is exceptionally light in texture. If you prefer a more viscous formula, please explore our Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5.

  • Ph 4.00 – 5.00.
  • Alcohol Free.
  • Oil Free.
  • Silicone Free.
  • Nut Free.
  • Vegan.
  • Gluten Free.
  • Cruelty Free.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent, as even though it contained Lactic Acid, Tasmanian Pepperberry Leaf Extract, and Caster Oil, I thought that it had a very strange sour and nutty scent to it that kind of reminded me of Wet Cardboard.

It’s consistency.

I really liked it’s consistency, as even though it was called a Chemical Exfoliant, I thought that it felt really thick and balmy, and was more like a thick and balmy Facial Serum rather than a thin and watery Chemical Exfoliant.

What it didd when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once I had started to massage a little bit of it into my Skin, it turned from a thick and balmy Facial Oil into a thin and light Chemical Exfoliant that spread really easily across my Face.

It’s results.

I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my Skin feeling incredibly silky soft, smooth and bouncy, but it also left it looking extremely glowing and radiant for hours after I had used it.

It’s packaging.

I really liked it’s packaging, as this came in a small cylindrical Glass Bottle with a Pipette Lid that looked beautiful sat on my Beauty Shelves.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent, as even though it contained three different types of Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin B5, I thought that it had a very strange sour and nutty scent to it that kind of reminded me of Wet Cardboard.

It’s consistency.

I really liked it’s consistency, as even though it was called a Hydrating Facial Serum, I thought that it felt incredibly thick and slimy, and was more like a thick and slimy Liquid Soap rather than a thin and balmy Hydrating Facial Serum.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent, as even though it contained Hawaiian Red Algae, Arginine, and Salicylic Acid, I thought that it had a very strange sour and nutty yet ever so slightly fishy scent to it that kind of reminded me of wet Cardboard.

It’s consistency.

I really liked it’s consistency, as even though it was called a Hydrating Facial Serum, I thought that it felt incredibly thin and watery, and was more like a thin and watery Micellar Water rather than a thick and balmy Hydrating Facial Serum.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% a nine out of ten, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 an eight out of ten, and The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics a nine out of ten. I really liked The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%, as I absolutely loved it’s thin and balmy consistency, what it did when I used it, it’s results, and it’s packaging, but I just wasn’t a massive fan of it’s very strange sour and nutty scent.

I really liked The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics, as I absolutely loved it’s incredibly thin and watery consistency, what it did when I used it, it’s results, and it’s packaging, but I just wasn’t a massive fan of it’s very strange sour and nutty yet ever so slightly fishy scent.
