Why Was It Reformulated?


If you’re a devoted fan of this popular skincare brand, you may be surprised by this update.

Despite its existing popularity, the reformulation is designed to maintain the serum’s original benefits while addressing its issues.

Rest assured, The Ordinary is committed to enhancing their products to provide the best possible experience for their customers.

Some users have shared that the serum’s formula was too heavy and sticky for them, which fuelled The Ordinary’s move to update this product.

After listening to customer feedback, The Ordinary has now altered the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 formula to be less tacky and more lightweight, boosting its absorption and texture on the skin.

What Does The New Formula Do?

The hyaluronic acid concentration in this serum remains at its original 2%, but the rest of the product has been improved upon, with new ingredients added in to boost the serum’s benefits.

Now, this serum contains five different forms of hyaluronic acid, which work together to provide maximum hydration. Together, they instantly moisturise, smooth, and plump your skin.

Furthermore, the formula now includes ceramides to maintain and protect your skin barrier, ensuring that moisture stays locked in.

With regular use of this product twice a day for four weeks, you can expect improved skin elasticity and a reduction in fine lines.

To keep your skin hydrated all day, simply apply this serum to wet or dry skin after cleansing. Since it’s a water-based serum, remember to use it before any oil-based products.

The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 retails for RM60 (30ml) and RM105 (60ml) at Sephora.
