What is The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA & what does it do?

Matrixyl 10% + HA, has a special formula that helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles by making your skin firmer and plumper. It contains two types of MatrixylTM and hyaluronic acid. This lightweight serum is good for areas on your face where fine lines usually appear. It helps your skin make more collagen, giving your face a smoother and younger appearance.

How do I apply Matrixyl?

Take the bottle and give it a little shake. Pour a couple of drops into the palm of your hands and then pat or massage Matrixyl into your skin. You only need 2 or 3 drops, but if you feel you need more, then apply more.

When and how to use Matrixyl?

You have the flexibility to incorporate Matrixyl into both your morning and evening skincare routines. Given that The Ordinary Matrixyl is water-based, it should be applied right after cleansing and before any oils, anhydrous, or cream solutions. When you have multiple water-based products, opt for the one that addresses your primary skin concerns or choose the product with the lightest consistency. This way, you can tailor your routine based on your specific needs.

Should I patch-test Matrixyl first?

You should patch-test any products before using them just in case of any reaction. If you choose not to patch-test products, then you should at least layer slowly so you know which products are ok. Read more about Patch-Testing here.

“Good product, I will buy it again.” N.A.

“I give Matrixyl 4/5. It makes skin look plumper. IT definitely improves skin condition. The texture is a bit sticky.” – K.M.

“Matrixyl is the foundation of my skincare after cleansing. I love it. It gives me a plumper, more youthful glow; I won’t be without it, and I don’t care what other products have as an ingredient. I like it on its own.” – T.E.

I give Matrixyl 2/5. I didn´t find Matrixyl helped with lines, but it is 200% not clogged. I’m still using it just as a small treat as hydration for my forehead.” -A.N.

I only started using Matrixyl again after it broke me out. Concentrating on lines around the eyes and 11’s. Hope by just using it in specific areas, I won’t break out again.” – E.D.
