What Is The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA & What Does It Do?
The Ordinary product names can be really confusing because they go by their actual ingredient names. It’s quite likely you have already used this ingredient in other products without realising it. Matrixyl 10% + HA (Hyaluronic Acid) is a high strength peptide with 2 different generations of Matrixyl which target fine lines and wrinkles.
Deciem’s Simple Explanation: Matrixyl 10% + HA – a very high-strength peptide formula to visibly target the look of static (always there) and dynamic (forming with muscle motion) wrinkles.
How & When Do I Use The Ordinary Matrixyl
The Ordinary Matrixyl is a water based product that should be used as one of the first layers, after cleansing. You can use it directly on your skin or you might apply it on top of one of the other water based products like Buffet or Hyaluronic Acid.
You can use Matrixyl in the morning and evening, however, there are some conflicting products so you might find you can only use this in the morning whilst you use your conflicting products in the evening.
Which Products Conflict With The Ordinary Matrixyl?
Matrixyl has quite a few conflicts and shouldn’t be used in the same routine as the following products:
- Direct Acids (as listed under The Ordinary)
- Products that contain pure vitamin C
L´AscorbicAcid Powder (LAA)
- Ethylated Ascorbic Acid Solution (ELAA)
- Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin
- Vitamin C 23% & 30%
- Obviously, if you are using other brands you need to check the ingredients of them too.
This is Deciem´s response about mixing Peptides and Acids.
Our rule against combining strong antioxidants only applies to our products containing copper peptides. We would not recommend combining direct acids with peptides due to the susceptibility of peptides to hydrolysis (which breaks the bonds between peptides, reducing their efficacy and making them into individual amino acids). At low pH, the peptides undergo processes such as deamidation (the removal of an amide group) and oxidation, which compromise the activity of the peptides.
Having said that, if you have previously combined peptides with acids and have not experienced any negative side effects or discoloration, you may continue to combine the two products as so as the combination does not pose any potential harm. Our recommendations are meant to serve as a preventative measure to avoid any incompatibility between those combinations and also because skin tolerance in subjective.
Can I use Matrixyl if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding.
Matrixyl is fine to use if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid skincare products that may contain retinol, retinoids or BHAs (acid) when pregnant or breastfeeding and always check with your consultant.

Some of the positive reviews
AA says: 4/5. I sometimes dislike you because I get little whiteheads on my nose. What do I love? The fact that my skin looks more youthful and hydrated. I don’t have crows feet developing after four months use.
YM says: I love it… Buffet did nothing for me but this makes my skin really hydrated and plumped up 4.5/5… I use it sandwiched in my 7 skins… And it’s been a game changer.
KM says: Really like it, definitely made my skin more plump and fine lines are less visible
SC: I really like it, it’s definitely plumped my skin and made it softer. I use it in the mornings or evenings when I’m not using acids.
DJ says: I spot use this product around my eyes, number 11’s and marionette lines. Very happy with results as it plumped up the eye area and smoothed the 11’s and marionette lines. Part of my Dailey routine and will continue to use.
KR says: I love Matrixyl and Argireline combo. 11’s so faint you can only see them up close and even then they are very difficult to see.
MM says: Matrixyl made my skin in no time (4 weeks) very smooth and my deep wrinkles changed to fine lines…specially under my eyes…❤️it!
NA says: Good product, I will buy it again.
KM says: 4/5 makes skin look more plump. IT definitely improves skin condition. Texture is a bit sticky
TE says: It is the foundation of my skin care after cleansing… I love it. It gives me a plumper more youthful glow… won’t be without it. I don’t care what other products have it as an ingredient. I like it on its own…. ❤️
Some of the negative reviews
AN says: I gave 2/5. Not really helped with lines but it 200% not clogged. I’m still using it just as a small treat as hydration for my forehead.
ED says: Only started using it again after it broke me out. Concentrating on lines around eyes and 11’s. Hope by just using it in specific areas I won’t break out again.
