The Ordinary ” Hyaluronic acid 2% + B 5 ” Review

The Ordinary ” Hyaluronic acid 2% + B 5 ” Review

When it comes to The Ordinary brand, this is what I would call,  the basic, foundation brand from Deciem. This means,  you get products with a more simple, yet effective, combination of ingredients ( in compare to products from other Deciem skin care brands, and the evident, price difference among them). This is also the brand you should start with, if you’re a beginner when it comes to skin care education.  By this, I mean learning about ingredients, what something does for the skin, when to use it,  etc., pretty much knowing what you’re actually putting onto your skin. In …
