great hydrator

i find this to be very hydrating, especially when my skin is feeling more dehydrated after using exfoliators or topical acne creams. this has a watery consistency so i have to drop it straight onto my face and rub it in before it dries. i don't have sensitive skin but it does sting a bit, especially when first starting it

High expectation but unpleasant application

I had high expectation for this product as it's supposed to help repair the skin barrier, and I bought it after the recommendations of some Youtubers. However, I found it very unpleasant to apply: it feels sticky and it takes a long time to sink in, and because of this it makes layering of further products difficult. I don't deny it's going to be good for the health of the skin in the long run, but I really don't enjoy it at all and am unable to incorporate in my routine. I've resorted to use it on my hands because I don't want to waste it, but I won't be repurchasing.

Best Use: Treat Redness, Hydrating, Barrier Repair

A marathon, not a sprint race.

I've used this serum for about a month. The texture is rather runny however, when applied on the face I can feel a semi oily consistency which surprised me at first. A little goes a long way. I use it daily as a buffer between actives, and if you allow a little time for absorption in between products it works well. Amino acids are essential for good healthy skin and I'm going to keep using this serum. That said, I feel this is going to be more like a marathon rather than a sprint race, meaning that, in order to see the full benefits of this product, you really need to be patient, stick to it and not expect too much too soon.

Best Use: Hydrating, Barrier Repair, Anti-Aging

A little bottle of miracles

I've been using this serum for about a year now and for my problem skin which is naturally both dry and oily, acne prone and often dull, this serum has be a game changer, my skin feels more elastic, hydrated without feeling sticky, it is my go to skincare item. It is no nonsense skincare from The Ordinary - the experts in skincare that removes all the marketing nonsense. I use it under moisturiser for an extra shot of moisture each day and at night it is embedded in to my routine. It doesn't have a fancy scent, so those looking for something that appeals to all senses don't expect it to wow you. It does what it's meant to do in spades though. Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Best Use: Breakouts & Acne, Flakiness, Hydration, Loss of Firmness, Redness, Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Uneven Skin Texture, Visible Pores, Brightening, Anti-Aging
