The Ordinary Buffet by The Ordinary


Target multiple signs of ageing at once with Buffet by The Ordinary. The Ordinary Deciem has achieved global success with its high-performance products at affordable prices. The brand uses high-quality ingredients and no-frills marketing to deliver expert skincare products. Buffet is a potent multi-technology Peptide serum that tackles the visible signs of ageing skin.


Key benefits of The Ordinary Buffet


  • -Lightweight and easily absorbed water-based serum
  • -Used as part of an anti-ageing routine
  • -Targets multiple signs of ageing at once
  • -Helps to rehydrate dry and dehydrated complexions
  • -Non-comedogenic formula
  • - 30ml



How does The Ordinary Buffet work?

The Ordinary Buffet was developed to target multiple signs of ageing with a powerful cocktail of Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Amino Acids. The combination of 6 Peptide Complexes helps diminish fine lines and dynamic facial folds, whilst the Hyaluronic Acid plumps and hydrates the skin for a firmer look and feel. A blend of Amino Acids helps to stimulate collagen production for a hydrated and younger-looking complexion.


How to use The Ordinary Buffet

The Ordinary Buffet is a water-based solution that can be used in both a morning and evening skincare routine. It should be applied after cleansing and after other water-based serums, and before oil-based products and moisturisers.


Who should use The Ordinary Buffet?

The Ordinary Buffet is suitable for anyone who has developed signs of ageing. It is also beneficial to those who have dry or dehydrated skin and want an extra hydration boost.


What are the key ingredients in The Ordinary Buffet?

The Ordinary Buffet contains a potent blend of 6 Peptide Complexes and 11 skin-friendly Amino Acids. These are suspended in Hyaluronic Acid in multiple molecular weights to create a weightless, water-based formulation. This anti-ageing facial serum is also vegan, gluten-free, silicone-free, alcohol-free, and nut-free.


Other products The Ordinary Buffet works well with

The Ordinary Buffet works exceptionally well in combination with The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2%, The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%, and Natural Moisturising Factors + HA to form a well-rounded anti-ageing routine.


The Ordinary Buffet vs Matrixyl

If you are wondering which The Ordinary serum to choose for anti-ageing, Buffet and Matrixyl 10% + HA are popular choices. Whilst Matrixyl features a single Peptide Complex, Buffet contains 6 Peptide Complexes that work simultaneously for more dramatic results. The Buffet also contains Amino Acids, whereas Matrixyl 10% + HA does not contain any.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for acne?

The Buffet has been specifically designed for those with dry, dehydrated, or ageing skin. Whilst someone with acne may benefit from the smoothing and hydrating formula, it is not recommended as an acne treatment itself.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for scars and pigmentation?

This anti-ageing serum has not been specifically formulated with scarred or pigmented skin in mind. There are other products from The Ordinary skincare range that are more beneficial for those who suffer from scarring or pigmentation. However, The Buffet can still be used to achieve smoother and more hydrated skin.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for rosacea?

Those with rosacea may experience dehydration, so The Buffet serum could be used as part of a skincare routine to boost hydration levels. However, The Buffet is not a rosacea treatment in itself.


Is The Ordinary Buffet comedogenic?

The Ordinary Buffet is non-comedogenic.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for wrinkles?

The Ordinary Buffet was developed with ageing and mature skin in mind, so this product is a particularly good treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. The blend of Peptides, Amino Acids, and Hyaluronic Acid helps to reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as diminish deeper, dynamic facial folds.

All of our products are filled/measured by weight/volume so the product is correctly filled to 30 ml. The packaging does not accurately reflect the size of the fill. However, this is intentional as some air must be allowed at the top for the product to actually close.

I Don't Know If It Does Anything - 15-12-2018 by

It was nice and I've even finished it but I don't know if it's done anything significant for me... maybe my skin is too young to notice difference in wrinkles and plumpness.

Hydrating, Smoothing & Just Beautiful - 13-12-2018 by

This serum is beautiful. It sinks right in so quickly & hydrates & smooths the skin's surface amazingly.
Also helped to cool & calm my rosacea & acne prone skin & helped with balancing out my oiliness under my makeup.
Would definitely buy again & would definitely recommend!!

The Lot Please - 13-12-2018 by

This products does as it claims to. It hydrates, evens skin tone, balances my sebum levels and is so super moisturising and gentle on the skin. One of my worries dipping into The Ordinary was actually the big chemical words on the products but I have found all my favorites from the range to be very gentle and friendly on the skin. I have combination, T-zone oily skin but its not sensitive (generally). I have had no issues adding products from The Ordinary into my skincare routine and have felt a great difference with the short use already! I like that this product combines all the important elements into one. I use this every night and morning (before makeup). My makeup remains fine throughout the day and this does not make me feel or look oily.

Absolutely love this. It works - 13-12-2018 by

I've received so many compliments on how smooth my skin looks and bright after using this. You don't need much just a drop morning and night. So easy and fuss free. Is gentle on your skin and effective. Love love it.

Great product - 13-12-2018 by

A friend research which products were best for my skin type and needs. I have very sensitive skin and was a little afraid to try this product at first. It's been a week and my skin seems more radiant and no breakouts or rashes. So far so good. I only use in the evening and ensure to wear sunscreen the following day after use.

Good - 13-12-2018 by

I really liked this product helped brighten my dull skin

Hmm it's OK - 13-12-2018 by

This was my first TO product and I loved it. I didnt notice much difference in anything other than hydration and loved the formula. However after a month or two I think it's increased the growth of tiny hairs on my face - others have said the same. Now I use once a week and use it on my chest instead.

perfect for everyday use - 12-12-2018 by

This is my favourite skin product I use it day and night everyday in rotation with other serums. my skin feels dewy and hydrated.

A must have product in my daily routine - 11-12-2018 by

I started using this product about 6 months ago and I love it. It really hydrated my skin. I use it every morning after I wash my face and it really replenishes the moisture. Make sure you let it dry properly before you apply sunscreen or makeup so it has a chance to absorb. I have combination skin that’s really sensitive and this serum works really well for me.

Gentle yet powerful! - 10-12-2018 by

This is a powerful little serum, really feels like it repairs my skin every time I use it. My ageing skin needs all the TLC it can get as I work outdoors in dusty and incredibly windy job sites so using buffet every day is just a little something I like to give back to my skin. Always feel more hydrated and vibrant when I use it.

Great - 10-12-2018 by

I’ve used this alternated with matrixyl from the ordinary, and can’t really tell the difference. Matrixyl is slightly cheaper but seems to contain very similar peptides.
It works to tighten and brighten my 43 yr old combo dry skin, and both are great.

Already a difference - 30-11-2018 by

This serum is so amazing. Absorbs right into the skin. I use 3 drops morning and night before my moisturizer. Been using this product for a week and my skin seems so much brighter. Love it

Good day time serum - 29-11-2018 by

I have combination skin and The Buffet serum is a great booster for during the day. I put it on after my morning shower before anything else and it's lightweight, so it doesn't feel too gluey when I put moisturiser on over the top.

Amazing! - 29-11-2018 by

I started using ordinary buffet because my skin looks very dull its only 3 days since i use buffet and my skin looks plump and tightens would love to buy more

Gentle and nourishing - 29-11-2018 by

I've using my 3rd bottle now, my skin is sensitive but I get breakouts, last year my skin was doing really bad and I started using Buffet and other products from The Ordinary. My skin has NEVER looked better. This product keeps my skin soft and happy all day. I'm using it every morning before other creams/ oils. I'm pairing it with Squalane and Moisturising factors+HA. I'm 28 :)

Holy Grail product - 28-11-2018 by

This is amazing. I wasn't using serums until a friend recommended The Ordinary. Now I can't imagine my life without the hydrating effects of buffet. It sinks in quickly, and feels amazing. I can feel how soft and hydrated my skin is afterwards. I will continue to repurchase this product.

The Ordinary "Buffet" - 28-11-2018 by

Love this serum! Love the price! Used to use the pricey estee lauder serum, but this one performs much better. The fine lines around my eyes look much better and I get a lot of compliments now and coworkers tell me how rested I look!

Definitely works - 27-11-2018 by

Whenever I use this product I feel instantly refreshed. I used this both morning and night, absorbs so quickly and leaves my skin soft and hydrated! I combine this with the h. acid + B5 ordinary and caffeine solution in the morning. So far I have noticed a minor difference in fine lines after one month. I’ll definitely be buying another bottle. Definitely good for those with sensitive skin but will need a moisturiser over the top. Worth the value! Can’t wait to see long term results

Plumping boost - 27-11-2018 by

I am 42 with rather dry skin. Thick moisturiser though, make me break out. I have found this does a nice job to boost a light moisturiser, so am finding it good, especially for summer. I think my skin is improving from it. Does feel plumper/dewier. Will try the one with Copper next time, but for the price, think this is a good add to my moisturising routine.

Love this product! - 27-11-2018 by

I have been using this for a few months and it was only when I ran out two weeks ago that I realised what a difference it had made on my 40's skin. Very subtle workings but continual use will improve texture, tone, fine lines, plumpness, basically overall improvement is unavoidable! For a no-frills product with such a great price I am very surprised that it actually works! A must have in your skincare routine.

Plumps - 27-11-2018 by

Nice affordable plumping serum

Stimulated hair growth - 27-11-2018 by

I liked the moisture it added to my dehydrated skin and it made my eyebrows thicken up. But after a few weeks of using it I noticed my peach fuzz becoming more prominent, so I now use it on my forehead, eyebrows, and under my eyes, and avoid my cheeks and chin.

Love this! - 26-11-2018 by

After reading some very glowing positive reviews about this Buffet product, I decided to give it a go. I love the way it absorbs into my skin and leaves me looking hydrated and slightly dewy without being sticky to touch as I found the ASAP B serum that I had been using did after application. This stuff is great. I apply it under my makeup in the morning and again after cleansing of a night. And the price tag?! You can't go past it. Highly recommend trying this!

Love - 26-11-2018 by

I llovvee this product. I purchased and after 3 weeks i could see a new glow in my skin
Love it!!!

Can't do without - 26-11-2018 by

This has become a must every morning and night for me - I started off with some of the other Ordinary products, but have moved to this as a 'catch all', alongside some active acids. It provides great hydration and my skin always looks happier after use. On to my 4th bottle and plan to keep as a staple in my routine.

Dewy and easy to use serum at a great price - 26-11-2018 by

Obviously the Ordinary is cult for a reason. I have been using this serum for a number or years now and it’s the best one I’ve found at this price point. It has a watery gel texture that spreads easily and absorbs quickly. I tend to have sensitive skin, sometimes I will develop a reaction to things months after continuous use, but I’ve never had any issues with this. The bottles are aesthetic and look great in the bathroom (vain of me I know).

Amazing - 26-11-2018 by

Only need a small amount & makeup goes on amazing, skin is hydrated all day. Love love love. And such a good price. I have paid 10x more for not as good results. Love the ordinary!

Amazing anti-aging product - 26-11-2018 by

Bought this for my mum as a little pick me up as she deals with dull skin that was showing signs of aging and she really loved this. She definitely telling all her friends to try it out and I would probably recommend it to you guys who are worried about aging skin. I myself don't need it as I'm not there yet being 21. But would definitely try this out as my skin begins to go through those stages. My mum is so happy with this can't wait to buy it again when she finishes. :)

Affordable and effective - 23-11-2018 by

I love this serum, it feels almost like water and is instantly absorbed and it really does make my skin feel more hydrated throughout the day. Considering the price this is deffinately a 5 star product in my book.

Additional benefits - 22-11-2018 by

Made my eyelashes grow longer as a side effect bonus

Feels nice but what exactly is the benefit? - 22-11-2018 by

Not sure if it's simply my skin but I haven't noticed any change since using this. I am in my mid-30s and have combination skin that is prone to acne. The Buffet serum feels hydrating upon first application. But, has it made any dramatic difference to my skin? No. In my opinion it just feels like an antioxidant serum (I'm aware it has peptides, but how potent are they?), which is useful for prevention rather than cure. Also it may be a bit rich to use during the day in the heat of the Summer.

Great product - 22-11-2018 by

This product is amazing with the Hyaluronic Acid from The Ordinary! Really works to plump the face and makes you look more hydrated and fresh. Initially I wasn't sure if I was seeing results so I stopped using it after the first bottle - but after a week of not using it I really noticed what it was doing for me! It is lightweight on the skin and a great base to use before other products

Affordable but not yet showing effects - 20-11-2018 by

This review covers the following The Ordinary products:

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%
The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%
The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA 100ml
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

I was recommended The Ordinary products by a friend who also has dry, sensitive skin prone to redness. I'm male, 50.

When trying new products I try to get all the recommended products within a brand's range to give it a solid go. The first thing about The Ordinary products is trying to workout exactly what was suitable for my skin. Adore Beauty has a guide on its site but I also did a lot of Googling and came up with the list above.

Price is obviously an attraction to this product line. I've been using the products for about a month now & am really struggling to see any benefit particularly as I've experienced things like 'pilling' which I'd never heard of or experienced before using The Ordinary. It's really annoying & the only way around it is to use only one oil based product at a time.

My morning routine is buffet, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid followed by the moisturise & eye gel. Most of these serums are gel based and while they soak in quite well between applications they leave my skin feeling tight so I have to put on my regular other brand moisturiser.

In the evening I omit the niacinamide and put on either the Magnesium or the Vitamin C oil based creams. I then finish with another brand's moisturiser.

Perhaps it's too soon to see any results but I definitely need more moisturising creams than these water based serums. I like The Ordinary moisturiser which absorbs well while still being lightweight. The serums leave my skin shiny which I don't like & they don't calm any razor burn even if applied over my post-shave balm.

I'm still undecided as to whether I'll buy these products again. If I do it will be because of the price & I might regard them as 'fertiliser' nourishment for my skin rather than an everyday routine.

Great product - 19-11-2018 by

Affordable and works well

Great product - 19-11-2018 by

Been using for sometime now every morning, it's affordable and works very well

great serum - 19-11-2018 by

great product, especially for the price. will be trying more products from this brand

Little bottle of magic - 19-11-2018 by

I absolutely love this serum. I apply morning and night before moisturiser and or makeup. I have a soft, dewy and even complexion and I haven't had a pimple in the two months I've been using it. Highly recommend this little gem of a product.

Excellent product - 16-11-2018 by

I was very impressed by the moisturising properties of the hyaluronic acid serum by The Ordinary but since this has got that and many other additives to benefit the skin I bought it and have been very happy. I have older, dry skin and it is much improved after using this product.

Does what it says, great value product - 15-11-2018 by

Leaves my skin feeling great, at a very affordable price point. Absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any shone or residue.

Not for dry, dehydrated skin - 13-11-2018 by

Skin type: dry, dehydrated, fair, sensitive

My skin is so dry that every morning and evening, it is essential that I have something ultra moisturising. Although this does have antioxidants that "pep up" your skin on first contact, it doesn't offer enough hydration for me. Yes, you can follow with a moisturiser but the moisturiser does not sink in enough because of the serum layer. After application, it just dries to a thin flim that doesn't seem to do much.

It's a two or three star product, but because I believe the reviews over-hype this product, I've given it one star. Perhaps more suitable for combination/oily skin.

Multivitamin - 13-11-2018 by

This product feels like a multivitamin for the skin. A little bit of everything you need. I am not sure how well it worked on me as I was using so many other products at the same time. I would try this product again however to see the effectiveness.

WOW - 12-11-2018 by

All I can say is.... WOW.

This is the first product I have purchased from The Ordinary and it has exceeded my expectations.

I was interested in this product to reduce the appearance of fine lines on my forehead and to prevent any new lines forming. I have been using it for two days and the results are immediate. I could not believe it when I looked in the mirror this morning! My forehead is visible smoother.. miracle product!

Great serum for the price - 12-11-2018 by

I like Buffet and gave used a few bottles of it. It’s excellent value for money when compared to similar High-end serums. The hyaluronic acid in it plumps up your skin and adds extra hydration under moisturisers. Sits well under makeup.

Good and cheap - 12-11-2018 by

All in one easy serum to target multiple problems

Another great product from The Ordinary - 09-11-2018 by

I use this product in conjunction with The Ordinary Niacinamide and Zinc along with the Hyaluronic acid and B5. Although I find those products quite moisturising I find that I sometimes need a bit more hydration boost and that's what the Buffet gives me. My skin is looking better in my 40's than it ever has thanks to The Ordinary. I've always had good skin but if I was going to be picky there has always been some redness, an oily T zone, enlarged pores and dehydration. Before using The Ordinary I was starting to get mild rosacea. Now all those issues are a thing of the past. Like all of this brands products a little bit goes a long way.

Good product - 09-11-2018 by

I have combination/ oily skin, backheads and large pores around my nose and large painful pimples around my chin and jawline. I’m using buffet in conjunction with the salicylic acid and the hyaluronic. I haven’t noticed what it does too much as the other products I have really noticed the difference. My hope is that as my skin improves this would be enough for the days where the salicylic is too drying or the hyaluronic is too sticky. The buffet with the other products has really improved my skin in the last two weeks since I’ve been using though and my pimple sizes have halved and seem to not hang around too long. My pores and blackheads have shrunk considerably and my skin feel so soft and looks brighter. Can’t wait to keep seeing results.

Buy this brand! - 09-11-2018 by

I love the Ordinary sooooo much! Especially 'The Buffet'. I actually bought this bottle for my mum as I've noticed my skin has become much smoother after using this. I use morning and night under moisturiser. Such a beautiful product/brand!

I couldn't live without this! - 06-11-2018 by

After using the Buffet for only two weeks every morning before rosehip oil my skin is radiant. I've been getting comments on how good I'm looking. It's like a revitalising drink for skin first thing in the morning. This is my "must have" product which my mum and sister swear by as well.

Definitely worth it!! - 06-11-2018 by

Third time purchased The Ordinary Buffet. Reasonable price and amazing effect. You won't regret!

Big Bang for your buck - 05-11-2018 by

For the price point this serum is absolutely amazing for what you get. Makes my dry, dull skin look super hydrated and glowy over night. A little goes a long way and can often feel slightly tacky if I apply too much but is still easy to apply makeup over.

Skin Food...definitely! - 05-11-2018 by

I had to try this after reading all the other reviews...I'm glad I proved to me that you don't need to spend mega bucks to get a nourishing serum for your skin. I have quite dry skin and need lots of extra moisture, the Ordinary Buffet noticeably replenished my skin with whatever it needed after a couple of weeks of use...fine lines from dryness disappeared. I still need to use an extra moisturiser but this serum certainly helps as part of my overall skin care routine.

Skin is left feeling soft and supple - 02-11-2018 by

This is the little bottle that sold me on The Ordinary products, and its something that I'll continue to use. My skin has never looked as healthy and clear, I am in my early 40's and I am really happy spending my money on the brand. Apart from a few fine lines, I have clearer and brighter skin than I had 10 years ago.

Buy this! - 01-11-2018 by

I am no chemistry expert, but this stuff seemed to 'work'. I was after an all-in-one cheaper serum and this product delivered. It was easy to use and my skin didn't react at all. I wish it came in a pump bottle and I'd be putting it everywhere!

Holy grail of serums - 31-10-2018 by

This is the first product I used from this brand as I was recommended by a girl from work. It is amazing and I have since brought it again along with almost every product in this range as I’m sure everyone else has! This serum dries super quick, your face literally drinks it.

Can't live without it - 31-10-2018 by

This product quickly became one of my faves for every day use!
And for clients!
Great spreadability!!!

Hydrating - 31-10-2018 by

My holy grail Ordinary product. What I thought were fine lines on my forehead completely disappeared after one use. Turns out my skin was VERY dehydrated and the Buffet serum sorted it in one use!

best product - 31-10-2018 by

I have used the ordinary range for 2 months now and have seen a massive change in my skin. I added the Buffet to my PM routine as it was a reasonable price and wanted to see if I noticed any change in my skin. Over all it was a great result. my skin glowed from the 1st use and left the texture of my skin very smooth. I use this every other night in conjunction with other products!

Amazing - 29-10-2018 by

Noticed much improvement after using this, less blemishes and fine lines and reduced

Great Product - 29-10-2018 by

Brought this product because of all the hype...have to say it lived up to it. Will be ordering my second bottle soon. Helped with pigmentation and just an overall glow.Highly recommended.

Great all rounder - 26-10-2018 by

This is my second bottle and would recommend it to anyone. Helps even out my skin and provides overall hydration.

Great all rounder - 26-10-2018 by

Noticible improvement to my skin moisture levels and ‘bounciness’ when layering this under my sunscreen in the mornings.

Like a breakfast buffet but better - 25-10-2018 by

Literally food for your skin. This serum does everything! Heals, soothes, nourishes & hydrates! I use this serum everyday, especially on long night shifts and during travel to keep my skin feeling and looking healthy and fresh.

Love the Buffet - 24-10-2018 by

Everyone loves a good buffet and this one may not have food but wow it feeds your skin.

Love all The Ordinary products but this one is on my high rotation list.

Wow - 24-10-2018 by

I purchased The Ordinary Buffet after reading amazing reviews. I was somewhat cynical that a product this price would make much difference to my poor sun ravaged visage! Well knock me over sideways, I can see a real difference in the depth of the lines in only one week. I swear I feel my skin plumping up every time I apply it. Excited to see if the results are accumulative. Impressed at this stage!

I can't believe the difference - 23-10-2018 by

I have been using this serum for just over three weeks and I am so surprised at the improvement in small lines. My skin is so much moister with a definite reduction in fine lines and a softening of the hard wrinkles. Very impressed,

Wonderful all rounder! - 22-10-2018 by

I purchased buffet after several recommendations from friends. I have generally clear combination skin (oily t-zone, chin and forhead) and i wanted to find an all rounder serum mainly for overall maintenance and anti aging. This is perfect for me! I can see visible positive effects almost immediately. I suggest (particularly when using in the AM) that you use this sparingly and pat it onto your face rather than rubbing it in - if too much is applied buffet can ball up once other products are applied over it. Besides this small factor I truly can't fault it!

noticed fine lines faded a bit - 22-10-2018 by

I bought this product as part of the no brainer set, as i was confused with the labels on the products, and didnt know which to get. im 37 years old so need to start looking after my skin and signs of aging, and have found after three weeks of using this product that the fine lines on my forehead have started to fade a bit!
my skin feels smoother and i dont seem to be getting any breakouts of pimples since using this!
Love the price tag, that it is creulty free, and will keep buying!!!

Great entry product - 19-10-2018 by

If you're just starting out with a serum in this brand it would be my go to pick! A bit of everything! Skin was softer, smoother and more hydrated. Definitely noticed a difference in even how my makeup sat.

Great product! - 18-10-2018 by

I've always had dry skin even when I've tried using multiple products. I don't like sticky products. This product absorbs really well into my skin and leaves my skin moisturised all day!
I would recommend this to people with dry skin.

comfortable serum - 18-10-2018 by

out of other serums in the ordinary, this is more comfortable than all others. No sticky, no oily, and light wear... but I did not see the effects, I will repurchase it

Leaves skin looking its best - 18-10-2018 by

A hardworking all rounder, leaves skin looking healthy and fresh. Works well on early-mature skin, my skin looks bright and feels plump and nourished. Will continue to buy

On my third bottle! - 18-10-2018 by

Loving this serum, it’s light and absorbs quickly. I have found my skin to appear brighter. I layer this product along with other serums and it works perfectly. Such a good price point too. Highly recommend this!

A must have! - 18-10-2018 by

This product has done wonders to my skin. I have combination skin and during a trip to Malaysia, while I am used to my skin turning oily with the humidity, my skin stayed relatively matte. My skin has also felt more plump, which is great for my age (mid 30's). You only need 2-3 drops per application as well. My bottle lasted me three months, which is great for the price point and for what it does for your skin!

super hydrating, beautiful consistency - 18-10-2018 by

normal/dry skin type
I bought this serum because I am concerned with general signs of aging and dehydration.
this serum is super hydrating, love the texture and feel on my skin, soaks in really nicely. I would recommend this product.

First and only ordinary purchase - 18-10-2018 by

Not for me. I have sensitive skin that is prone to dryness but not acne. This was a really awful, sticky mess on my skin. Every time I would use it my skin would become blotchy and red with the added joy of little whiteheads spread far and wide!

Skin food! - 18-10-2018 by

The Buffet is truly food for skin that my skin is eating up and loving!
Lines fading, creases turning to lines, wrinkles to creases ... balanced complexion, hydrated, awake and no allergic reactions!
Win win.
Love it.

Great stuff - 17-10-2018 by

Love this for my dry sensitive skin... on my 3rd bottle absorbs well, my skin in general has improved.

Love this serum - 16-10-2018 by

This serum is a staple in my skincare routine. It's light and you only need a small amount to cover face. Sometimes I even mix equal ratio of water to buffet drops if my skin is super dry as it helps lock down hydration. Reccommend to any skin type and any sensitivity.

Amazing product but unsure of effect - 16-10-2018 by

I finished a bottle of this product and didn't really see a noticeable difference before and after. I really enjoyed the application process and loved all the ingredients that went into this formation but I'm just not seeing any difference.

However, I brought this product with me overseas and it really helped keep the moisture in my skin as a typically get dry skin while overseas. I noticed that I wouldn't get the dry patches I normally would and my make-up would apply really well the next day. So it may be really helpful for those with dry skin as I typically have oily skin on a day-to-day basis.

Light serum - 16-10-2018 by

I like using this serum as a base before putting on heavier creams. It's very light and absorbs quickly. I don't use this often but when my skin looks like it needs a boost. The price is unbeatable!

Brilliant - 15-10-2018 by

This is amazing- especially for the price, I can’t believe how much of a difference this has made in my skin! I have sensitive, combination skin with pigmentation and tend to be acne prone. This has evened my skin tone and doesn’t make me break out. It has zero smell to it, but can feel a bit tacky when you first apply it. I use it at night under the HA moisturiser and I like it better than the more expensive serums I’ve tried!

Unsure/still good - 12-10-2018 by

Used cosmedix & d.r aspect before this stuff (great treatments). And i feel like its maintaining my results, and still improving. After my cosmedix deep oil cleanser I alternate using this, the vitamin c suspension, the vitamin c powder, the retinoid 5%, the moisteriser, and niacinamide.
I trialed the products on my body before my face and was quite impressed, especially with the buffet on top because it looks shiny on the skin after it, soo toned and smooth and works on stretch marks. Today i put it on my face after my vitamin b and vitamin c suspension and of course shiny. So i am not liking the shiny look after it. I think ill continue using these products for my body, and maybe very lightly on my face. But i'm thinking i might just throw in a curve ball and purchase rationale for my face. Also these products have no scents. If you love a good scent just use a body mist over it but then again, its gonna make you shine like a hi-vi shirt ha ha.

This is amazing! My fine lines are miraculously disappearing and my skin is the clearest and smoothest it’s ever been. Love all the ordinary products!

I've seen quite a few changes in my skin. I am very proactive and take pictures of my skin since I started using it. The actives in this product are amazing and it is almost unbelievable that such a great product is so inexpensive.

Love!!! - 09-10-2018 by

This products is The Ordinary fave of mine! Love the price it’s works amazing and a little goes a long way! It’s really working wonders!! My skin feels really healthy and hydrated after using.

Amazing - 07-10-2018 by

My skin is usually so dry i need put so many products on my skin and still feel like it has sand papered by 3 pm. After just one day of this its soft and plump. I so love.

use it on the daily! - 05-10-2018 by

I love love love this product (and everything by the Ordinary!)
I find this is very easily absorbed and a little goes a long way!
I have noticed my finer lines around my eyes and lips are diminishing, though I do use a fair few other ordinary products so it might be a combination of them all!

I use this in conjunction with Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 & Granactive Retinoid to help fight general signs of ageing!

Love it! - 04-10-2018 by

Amazing product for the price! Lightweight, easily absorbed and doesn't irritate my skin. Already noticing that my skin is brighter and the fine lines are fading. I use this in conjunction with a few other of The Ordinary products so the results may be a combination of all of the products. I will definately continue to use this.

good for dry skin - 04-10-2018 by

my skin is dry and i've been using the ordinary buffet to give it an extra boost. very affordable serum that is hydrating. can't use it alone though, it's not enough

Miracle Serum - 04-10-2018 by

I have a lot of dryness and pigmentation from old acne scarring. This serum hydrates and soothes my skin whilst simultaneously repairing my pigmentation.

It does the same job as my $200 serum that I no longer have to buy!

Great allrounder - 04-10-2018 by

I’ve tried more expensive serums but this beauty does just as good if not a better job. Brightens a dull complexion, and makes your skin feel soft and hydrated. I like to mix with a vitamin c powder for extra results and Works good on pigmentation, and all at a great price.

Hmmm not sure what the hype is about - 04-10-2018 by

Bought this from the hype but made my skin a bit red and blotchy.

Love it - 04-10-2018 by

If you’re after a simplified skincare regime then this is the proxy for you. I love the ordinary products and this one is no different, it goes on a little sticky but dries really quickly and soaks right in. After a week I noticed my skin to be more toned and glowy. Highly recommend especially for the price point!

Amazing product for such a reasonable price. - 02-10-2018 by

I was put onto this product by a number of friends as I've started to notice some early signs of ageing and dullness to my complexion. And it has done wonders! My skin looks glowy and moist all day long. The only downside is the product has a tendency to "pill" if I want to wear foundation on top of it, but this is generally fixed by putting a lighter layer of product on.

Wonderful serum - 02-10-2018 by

I bought this serum for my mother as she wanted to find a cheaper serum that can work as good as the Korean/Japansese serums she bought while she was on a trip last year. My mother has oily skin and still had acne from time to time. She was not take good care of her skin while she was younger and it made her fine lines/ wrinkles very deep. When she turned 50 and started to use eye cream and serums, she tried out lots of brands from luxury to drug store but nothing seems to work.After 1 month of using this serum,, of course the fine lines/wrinkles are still there but it looks smoother now, and it also brightens her skin a bit. I will keep buying this product for her.

Anything but Ordinary - 02-10-2018 by

I purchased this product three weeks ago and as soon as you put it on your skin you can feel it start to work. My skin feels nice and tighter after I use it. I generally have oily skin around my t-zone and have occasional break outs but I haven't had a single blemish since using the ordinary products!

Great product! - 01-10-2018 by

Didn’t notice a huge difference at first, but with continued use, I found this serum to be really helpful for brightening and evening out my skin tone. Overall, it just gives your skin a beautiful, glowing appearance. Would highly recommend, I think this could work for many skin types

Cult following for a reason - 01-10-2018 by

This product addresses most anti-aging needs in one quick, easy, non greasy serum. It goes on beautifully and is so cheap! Must have for all skin types in my opninon. Highly recommend!

Not worth the money - 01-10-2018 by

I bought this product thinking if it was the most expensive within The Ordinarys range it would be worth it but honestly I saw no difference. Once I finish the bottle I won’t repurchase.

HG - 28-09-2018 by

Bought it for my mum and she loves it. Has really diminished many years of sun damage and her skin looks like its been renewed from within. Does an amazing job at lightening pigmentation and lifting wrinkles. Amazing skincare for such an amazing price.
