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.

Most Helpful Positive

Great all rounder
This was the first serum I purchased from the ordinary and I am loving it mixed with the L-Ascorbic Acid Powder. It's also really nice under makeup.

Most Helpful Criticism

It was okay
I used this morning and night for 3 months it was okay, my skin was smoother but it was nothinf to rave about I probably wouldn't purchase again
  1. Great all rounder

    This was the first serum I purchased from the ordinary and I am loving it mixed with the L-Ascorbic Acid Powder. It's also really nice under makeup.
  2. Something a bit extra to make my skin pop

    I really enjoy this serum, it’s completely non irritating if a touch sticky when first applied. I use this morning and night on my combo/dry skin and find it helps to smooth my skin out. I will continue to use this product especially to fight signs of aging in the future.
  3. It was okay

    I used this morning and night for 3 months it was okay, my skin was smoother but it was nothinf to rave about I probably wouldn't purchase again
  4. Great product with suitable price

    it's a useful and suitable serum for my skin, great product.
    Even a little sticky gel but improve the smooth skin texture. I recommended to my friends; they loved as well.
  5. Waste of money

    This did absolutely nothing for me. I would not recommend
  6. Good all rounder serum

    I recently purchased this based on the great reviews and price point. I’ve previously used a range of dermalogica hydration and firming serums but the price was too attractive not to give it a run. I’m defintely impressed. My skin feels firmer and is brighter after a few months of use. I apply am and pm after cleansing and underneath a moisturiser. My skin tends to be sensitive and I’ve had no issues with this product.
  7. Great serum

    I’m really loving The Ordinary range of products and the Buffet would have to be my favourite. The serum is nice and light and soaks in very easily and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple. It’s a great product at a very affordable price.
  8. Valued serum

    This is the third time to buy this serum, Hydrated and absorb it well.
  9. Wow - what a product!

    I normally use Clarins Double Serum, which is amazing, but this product is incredible! The nicest serum to use at a fraction of the price - my skin just drinks it in.
  10. Non-Negotiable in my regime

    My skin feels so soft, healthy and plump! I also find that it reduces the redness around my nose, absolutely love this product! It is a hydrating serum, the consistency is amazing, it is very light and applies very well. This is a no-brainer, everyone needs this in their skincare routine.
  11. Perfect for hydrating under eyes

    Skin type: Normal-Dry
    I initially bought the buffet to mix with the Ordinary powdered Vitamin C. However, I did not feel like it did much and I started using it under my eyes to use up the product.
    I feel like this product has helped hydrate my super dry undereye area significantly compared to just using an eye cream by itself. I am not sure how well it works for your face, but I recommend it for under eyes.
  12. Must have

    If you’re going to buy anything from The Ordinary range- get the buffet. I’m 30 years old and my skin has never looked better.
  13. Holy Grail

    I love Buffet! It has made such a difference to my skin! It completely hydrates my skin, making it feel supple and soft. I've started receiving compliments on how my skin is glowing and I credit Buffet for that! I've purchased this twice and now and will continue!
  14. great hydration

    This was a really nice product, especially for the price. This gave great hydration on the skin. I found it was best to be used in a small amount to avoid pilling with other certain products on top. Would recommend this product to others.
  15. Love this product

    This product is a new one for me, after a week of use I already notice the difference in my skin. It was looking tired and fine lines were starting to creep in. Now my skin looks plump and moisturized whilst not getting oily in the Tzone and the dry skin i seem to of had is disappearing.
  16. hydrating and great ingredients

    I've used this for the last month and for the price I'm very impressed with my results. My skin is more plumped and hydrated. I will definitely continue to repurchase this product.
  17. Really nice product

    Definitely one of my favourite products I've tried from the Ordinary, overall whenever I'm looking a bit dull and tired I always put this on and feel like it immediately makes me look more fresh. The serum itself is a nice texture and a little goes a long way for covering the whole face, and it has a nice cooling/tightening feel on your skin- always nice to feel that immediate effect (not too tightening, but for me it was still nice to apply a moisturiser or oil afterwards).
  18. best serum!

    This is my favourite The Ordinary Serum. It contains a cocktail of peptides which help repair barrier function and reduce inflammation. I use this on alternate days to Salicylic Acid to prevent my skin from drying out. It can work wonders on dry flakey skin, acne and broken capillaries
  19. Makes skins feel amazing

    For $25 it is amazing, makes skin feel super soft and dewy
  20. A great place to start with The Ordinary

    A great place to start with The Ordinary. I find this serum leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated. I have sensitive skin and it didn't have a bad reaction to this, which is great.
  21. Love this product

    I can’t recommend this enough. I can literally feel the moisture in my skin throughout the day. This adds a feeling of plumpness. I use this with the hylauronic acid then my normal moisturizer. My makeup sits nicely over the top as there is no residue at all.
  22. Love it!!!

    Amazing product my skin has gotten so much better after using this product!!! Love it!!
  23. No huge change to my skin but it just looks better

    I reallllly like this product. I'm using it more for preventative anti-ageing so I can't say I've seen any significant results, I'm just trying to prevent damage from happening in the first place. But I can say that my skin just looks and feels better when I'm using it. Smoother, brighter, I don't even know, just nicer!

    I'm super sensitive so I mix it with the Hyaluronic Acid (even though the peptides are already suspended in HA...I just need to further dilute it) and use it about every second day, but I think for most people it would be fine to use it straight on a daily or twice-daily basis. As I'm getting used to it I've been able to build up to somewhat more regular use.

    I'm only giving 4 stars because I haven't found it as life-changing as some products from TO, and it's a bit more expensive than most of them, but it's definitely something I will repurchase and would recommend to others.
  24. Bright and healthy skin!

    My skin feels so soft, healthy and plump! I also find that it reduces the redness around my nose, absolutely love this product! It is a hydrating serum, the consistency is amazing, it is very light and applies very well. This is a no-brainer, everyone needs this in their skincare routine.
  25. Plump skin

    This is a really great serum, I'm currently using it as a preventative measure against aging and although I haven't noticed any major results, this definitely plumps my skin. I think this is the sort of product you use to prevent, rather than treat! Totally recommend
  26. Love it!!

    This is one of my favourite products from this company. I have normal skin and this plumps up my skin and evens out my skin tone. I would definitely buy again
  27. Absolutely amazing!

    The buffet was my first foray into the Ordinary. I’m absolutely hooked! Makes my skin feel silky and smooth, without the pain and expense of Botox. The price point is so good, I didn’t believe the Ordinary could be as good as everyone said, but, I’m thrilled to say, it really is.
  28. Good but very sticky

    I'm fairly happy with this, its definitely hydrating and helps with how my skin looks, however the texture is very sticky. I only use it at night and always put it on well before bed to give it a bit of time to soak in. I wouldn't use it during the day as I don't feel like it would go well under makeup.
  29. Perfect product for busy mum

    I noticed the difference for the first week. When I visit my friend, she recommended me the brand. I don't know what to buy from so many products, so I bought the start kit. The buffet just very easy to use. Easy absorb and I can now skip the toner just apply it with sunscreen lotion. Or apply this with the night moisturiser. The little acne is gone, and the skin feel smooth and hydrated but not sticky. My new favorite in the cabinet.
  30. This serum is next level

    I have been using the ordinary products for nearly 12 months now.
    Got my first buffet bottle last week and I feel like it has taken my skin to the next level.
    Straight away I could see good results. Reduction in fine lines, great hydration for my dry skin.
    Since using this I have even had a comment that my skin has a nice glow.
    Great results in such a short time for me
  31. Great product!

    This product sinks into my skin really well. It made my skin super hydrated and smooth by the morning. Highly recommend
  32. Holy grail serum!

    This was one of the first serums I picked up from The Ordinary and I absolutely love it! It does wonders for my skin. I've noticed my skin texture has evened out and I get less blemish. Definitely worth a try!
  33. Updated review

    I submitted a review a few months ago when i got my first bottle. I now am on my second and i am even more in love. I can tell a real difference in my skin tone. Im soon to be 31 and have a toddler my skin was pretty blah and lack lustre, always had to wear foundation to make me look half alive. This product has made a big difference I don't wear foundation as often as I feel my skin has a lovely healthy glow. I apply 3 drops morning and night. Absorbs into the skin great no residue or stickiness.
  34. Best serum ever!

    My absolute favourite - fast absorbing and light, it is a combination of HA plus the added vitamin complex boost - my skin simply loves it. I could see the results after only a couple of weeks, the skin is much healthier and more hydrated.
  35. Try this product!

    My skin has never looked so good.

    I use this every night, I really noticed the difference after I used it for two weeks.

    If I don't use it my skin is noticeably more dull and not as plump.
    An added benefit of this product is that it has encouraged hair growth on my overplucked eyebrows!

    I simply run a drop through a spoolie and then spoolie my eyebrows

    I have absolutely loved every single Ordinary product I have used.
  36. Youth in a Bottle

    This serum is brilliant, particularly at such a low price point! I have lots of fine lines around my eyes, smile lines and frown lines and this serum addresses my concerns! After a weeks use day and night my fine lines had noticeabley reduced and my makeup didn’t crease as much. I use this serum after a water based Hydrating serum and before oil and moisturiser. I will continue to purchase this for my ageing, dehydrated skin. I have recently purchased a Derma Roller and can’t wait to see what results these two products will have when used together. Highly recommend.
  37. BUFFET FOR YOUR SKIN

    This amazing product is literally a buffet for your skin. It brings your skin back to life and makes you look and feel great. Perfect for under makeup, or without. My skin is on a roller coaster , it’s dry one second then oily the next. But I used this after cleansing my face with a facial cleanser. (I use the la Roche) and then dry. Apply the buffet to forehead, cheeks and rub it everywhere. Then apply my maybelline fit me dewy foundation. Works a treat! Can’t go wrong with this product at all.
  38. Staple item

    Just brilliant, my skin has improved using this and doesn't break out as much.
  39. Great Product

    Awesome product to go under your other serums
  40. Good so far

    I typically use this at night under a water mask but I have occasionally used this under a typical moisturiser and found that for some reason, the moisturiser doesn't absorb when I use this serum, it just sits on top of the serum.

    Otherwise my sensitive skin appears to handle it well, I have found my skin seems more moisturised/hydrated and just generally "happier".
  41. essential part of my routine

    I love this product. I have used it for about two years now and it has greatly assisted in smoothing and rejuvenating this skin on my forehead. It works over time, so do not expect to see immediate results.
    This serum is incredibly good value considering the ingredients. The only draw back is that it has made me grow some peach fuzz. On the plus side my eyebrows have grown too. I cannot recommend this product enough.
  42. OK, but nothing to write home about

    I really wanted to love this product. I'd heard nothing but great reviews from everyone I knew who has used it, but unfortunately for me, it just did absolutely nothing. I have normal/combination skin, with some slight pigmentation issues and the occasional hormonal breakout, but nothing major, it's all very subtle, generally I have pretty good skin (no real major issues), so this product wouldn't need to do much for me, but it just did nothing. I've seen no improvement to my pigmentation, my skin tone or moisture levels in general, it's just done nothing for me. Unfortunate, but I think i'll be sticking with ASAP serums which have worked wonders for my skin previously, but unfortunately are much more expensive.
  43. Obsessed

    Absolutely obsessed with this product. Been getting positive comments about my skin since adding it to my skin regime from friends and co workers.
  44. Amazing product!

    I love this serum - it goes on easily, doesn't clog my pores, and keeps my skin feeling hydrated. I have noticed a huge difference since I started using it.
    My normal serum is four times the price of this one, and I must say I think I might like this one a little better!

    Definitely great value for money!
  45. Amazing!

    I love this product! My skin feels more hydrated and plumped after using it. I used it every morning under my SPF. I'm onto my 3rd bottle!
  46. Brighter Skin

    I've been using this for 3 months now and my skin looks brighter and smoother. I will definitely repurchase.
  47. Great hydrating for 22 y/o

    For my 22 year old skin, I can't say I have seen major effects on aging; however, it definitely doesn't look worse! My skin looks plump and hydrated, and is a really nice product used in conjunction with the Hyaluronic Acid 2% for extra hydration!
  48. Easy serum

    Lightweight serum which is easy to layer with other products
  49. so good

    so pleased I tried this! my skin has never looked better!
  50. Delivers on its promises

    I use this in conjunction with a number of The Ordinary products and I can honestly say it works. My skin feels immediately hyrdrated and plump once applying. More importantly, I have seen an improvement longer-term in fine lines and an evening of overall texture. Consistency and dedication is key, stock to your regimen and you’ll see results.
  51. Great ingredient combo

    I’m completely in love with TO line, this is a great serum and I use it almost exclusively for when I do skin needling. I’ve got 55yo combination skin that I religiously take care of and that has paid off as I’ve got very, very few wrinkles, this certainly helps! I would have given it 5 stars but for one thing, it pills on me under foundation even when I use a primer. I’ve tried it alone, with moisturiser, with just a light oil, you name it it just pills no matter how little I sparingly use which is why I use it either with needling or on the days I don’t wear makeup. I still recommend it as the results are great and I love the smorgasbord of ingredients!
  52. Not for me

    I had high hopes and wanted to love this product.
    Unfortunately I found it a little sticky to put on and felt it ‘lather’ which I didn’t like.
    I used the bottle but won’t re purchase.
    Didn’t notice any difference in my skin after use.
    Packaging is great.
  53. My Choice Serum Post Derma Rolling

    I use this mostly after a Derma Rolling session after gently misting my skin with some thermal water. It doesn’t sting but it does provide some nutrients to my skin post Rolling. I wake up glowing, fresh and more moisturised than when I went to bed, so The Buffet certainly does some work while I sleep.
  54. best of their serums

    Love this product. I took a gamble on a whole bunch of ordinary products last year and this is the only one that didn't make my skin react. Love the formula and skin is visibly brighter.
  55. excellent buy

    So glad I tried this product. I have fallen in love with The Ordinary range. I noticed a difference almost straight away.
  56. Makes my skin feel less dry

    Mature age, dry skin. I used this 2 years ago which was when I decided to do more than wash and moisturise. I moved on and tried other serums and brands, but have come back.. I do not expect it to turn back the clock at 63. It makes my skin feel very comfortable and provides a nice layer before rosehip oil and moisturiser. For the price it is worth every penny.
  57. Good actives but sticky texture.

    I've been using this for about 6 weeks, though only every few days to begin with in order to allow my reactive skin to adjust. The actives seem to be helping, although it's probably too soon to assess much beyond improved hydration and some textural difference. The formulation texture, though, is quite sticky, and I can't use it under make-up, as it causes it to pill. I've tried varying amount and timing, but have now just accepted that I can only use it on no-make-up days. This is disappointing, as I was hoping it would be of assistance in providing under-make-up hydration, however I will probably continue to use it in its current more limited role. I'm 41, with dry-ish, reactive skin that sometimes still breaks out, and have been using it in a daily routine with The Ordinary Niacinamide/Zinc, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Granactive Retinoid 2%, and the caffeine eye serum, with Tarte maracuja oil for moisture and a First Aid Beauty primer. The make-up in question is BareMinerals original powder foundation.
  58. PATCH TEST!

    Never got a chance to see the benefits for my skin, because I discovered after a few applications that I'm allergic to this. Definitely one to patch test first.
  59. Love this product

    Love this product fell in love with it straight away
  60. Can't see a difference

    I haven't noticed much of a difference with this product although it does seem like I have more peach fuzz on my face when incorporate into my routine. Won't repurchase once i have used it up.
  61. Great little all-rounder

    The Buffet is a great all rounder serum that helps with hydration and fine lines, it's been great for keeping balance in the skin and both my girlfriend and I use it so we have gone through *many* bottles
  62. 10/10, would recommend!!

    I suffer with ache scaring and olliness. I use AM some times, depending how my skin is feeling. Good to use under makeup aswell! PM I use micro needling to help with scaring therefore I use this serum. Find my skin refreshing and on an even level of oily and dry. So I would recommend for a better, healthy and brighter skin!
  63. Works well

    I use this daily and I’m very happy with the results. Spreads easily, soaks in quickly. I use Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA over this. So happy with this brand. Finally found a good quality range of products that actually work and are so cheap!!
  64. its alright

    very effective at first, but not much result now.
  65. Great results!

    Buffet is a perfect serum! I have been using Buffet every morning under my day cream now for 6 weeks in combination with the Ordinary Vitamin C and Retinoid serums at night. I have just turned 50 and my skin had a lot of sagging, lines and discolouration which have all improved so much already! My skin is firmer, smoother and very soft. People have commented on how great my skin looks for my age. Buffet is so easy to use, instantly absorbed so great for the morning. I have been so happy with my the Ordinary products, great price and great results! highly recommended!
  66. Good stuff

    Used this for a few months and found it really did help with skin hydration
  67. was asked if I had botox :-)

    first of all, i use 6 The Ordinary products in my skincare regime. I just recently switched to this brand almost a month ago after trying the Granactive retinoid 2% emulsion and fell in love with it then my TO obsession grew! I use buffet in AM (mix it with vitamin C suspension 23%,1:1 ratio) and in PM (buffet first then granactive retinoid 2% emulsion). This serum is so good to add to have that extra hydration when using other actives, plus with the wrinkles... what wrinkles? :-) I was asked if i had botox and was asked a few times what I use! Btw, I'm 43 and my skin has never looked this good in 10 years. In just a short time, I don't know how it happened, will be stocking up soon! Get ready Adore, just take my money! :-)
  68. Not sure

    Unsure if this made any real difference to my skin. I think there’s a tightening effect by the nature of the formula but I don’t think it’s a lasting impact. Will keep searching for an affordable replacement!
  69. My favourite product from the range

    This is best product from the range for the super lazy! It just has a bit of everything and is ideal to keep the skin smooth, moisturised and glowy. I apply it a few times a week before bed.
  70. Love it

    I really love the way this product makes my skin feel. Hydrating and not greasy. I only need a small amount, layers great with my other products. I use it at night so I can say how it would go under makeup but I think it would been fine. I recommend.
  71. Shantay u stay

    I've been using Buffet for a few months now and I'm really happy with it. I use it instead of moisturiser because my skin is super sensitive and seems to break out with anything heavier I use. Buffet's been amazing, it's rly light weight and dries quickly but an effective moisturiser. I've recommended to a few friends who all loved it too, it's become an essential part of my skincare routine.
  72. Nice Product

    I like water-based serum and I read about this one as a very good quality and price product.This solution is very pleasant and easy to use, it’s a watery solution that absorbs straight into my skin, fantastic for layering. I will continue to use it and hopefully see amazing results for my dry ageing skin.
  73. nice

    This is the second time to buy this as the gift for my friend. Nice serum
  74. Valued serum

    This is the first time to try this serum. My skin looks smooth and soft after one week. it's very sticky but absorbs well.
  75. Obsessed

    I use morning and night, my skin used to be dry and was starting to show signs of aging, I pair this with the hyalauranic acid, caffeine solution and granactive retinoid emulsion. I can already see my forehead lines smoothing out! Definitely worth the hype
  76. Good product

    I love this product! It gives my skin glow and it absorb to skin quick. Will definitely buy again. One of my favourite products
  77. Yet to see results

    After using HA2% for over 3 months,switched to this. I would say this is a good product,but haven't seen any major difference/concern.
    Will give it few more weeks
  78. Skin looks so much brighter

    I’ve used this for 3 weeks and already my skin is visibly brighter and smoother. Will be purchasing again!
  79. lovely product

    i use this at night and am enjoying how fresh my face looks in the morning.
    sits well and soaks in quickly, leaving no residue. not heavy
  80. lashes!

    As a 25 y.o with normal to dry skin I purchased buffet more as a hydrator/ for preventative measures. Because of this I can't say that it has truly changed my skin at all. However, this is my second bottle because I have definitely noticed my lashes have become stronger, less inclined to fall out & thicker with consistent use of buffet. Massive win
  81. This serum is an absolute dream

    My favourite serum to wear under makeup or just by itself, it leaves your skin with a glow. It is a miracle serum that leaves my skin looking literally 'buffed' away from any minor imperfections. For the first time ever in my life I have felt comfortable going makeup free when wearing this serum. Highly recommend, I have sensitive skin and works great on me. Amazing product to wear during the day or at night when going out under makeup!
  82. So good

    I am on to my third bottle and love it so much. It maintains hydration and skin smoothness
  83. Amazing serum

    This is a great serum... immediately I could tell it was working on my skin... my skin feels smooth and plump. Time will tell how much a difference it makes. But I'm loving it so far
  84. I hope this never gets discontinued

    I am 30 years old and Asian and I have acne prone skin. I break out mostly on my cheeks, then my chin and jaw line, and then my forehead. I used to have at least 1 pimple on my face somewhere at all times but since using this in conjunction with The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% i've been pretty much acne free for 6 months! Only get the odd spot when it's my time of the month or when my diet has been bad. I swear my pores have gotten smaller as well! I've found my holy grail product and I hope this never changes formula or gets discontinued. I highly recommend you give this a go.
  85. Nothing special

    After all the rave reviews I expected a lot from this product and The Ordinary brand in general but I've been left feeling underwhelmed. Since implementing this serum in my routine I haven't noticed any improvement to my skin and it can feel a little sticky to apply. I will keep using it but won't be buying it again
  86. Fab

    I tried this after I had heard about it online and was pleasantly surprised. The texture is quite sticky but it absorbs well and I noticed a difference in my skin after a few weeks. Great price point for a serum.
  87. Great serum!

    I love this serum. I find my skin is looking smoother and brighter after only a few weeks of use. It’s really easy to add into our routine as it goes on easily and dries down quickly with no stickiness. I find this is great under makeup with no interference. I use it every morning and the nights when I’m not using Glycolic Acid. I will definitely repurchase.
  88. Good product

    Provides moisture and plumpness to the skin without making it oily. I use this primarily around my eyes and forehead - my skin drinks it right up within minutes. Easy to use under makeup.
  89. Good value and effective serum

    At first I wasn't sure what to make of this but after going through two bottles of it I finally understand. I'm 33 years old with cystic acne and combination skin and I've been using this in with Vitamin C solution 12%, lactic acid 5% and 2% retinoids and my skin is brighter, with less noticeable lines around the mouth and forehead. I like this serum and find it more effective than other more expensive serums I've purchased in the past.
  90. Skincare staple!

    Less than a month after starting to use this, i have noticed improvements in my skin's texture. Keeps it well hydrated and soft! Use am and pm between my vitamin b/c serums and face oil. Well worth a try!
  91. Love this!

    I bought this about two weeks ago and I've been using it every night since - from day one it gave my skin such an amazing glow! I've bought products that cost four times as much and don't give half the results that this little bottle of goodness does. Love!
  92. Excellent!

    I love this product! I care a lot about my skincare and have a regimen but, when I don't have much time, this product or the sister Buffet + Copper Peptides is all I need with a moisturiser. I have normal/dry skin and in my early 30s and love it!
  93. Soo many compliments- glowing skin!

    This is such an amazing product! Such a great all-rounder and what a treat for your skin! Pretty much as soon as I began using it (it was my first purchase from The Ordinary brand) I had so many compliments from my colleagues about my glowing, fresh and clear skin. I couldn't believe it. i have oily skin, prone to breakouts and congestion and this worked wonders to clear, tone and brighten. It is always a staple for me now. It also doesn't hurt that it is super affordable! On another note, I love how these products come in glass- so good for our environment!
  94. Amazing

    I've purchased this twice and love it. Such an affordable and quality all rounder serum.
  95. Great serum at a great price

    This is a really great product at a really affordable price. Not at all greasy, goes on easily. I would definitely buy again.
  96. Such great value

    I haven't been using this long but already I feel that I notice a difference. Skin is plumper around my smile lines. It can sometimes lather up when going on but this quickly goes away and it sinks in. I haven't had trouble with pilling when applying moisturizer or creams overtop.
  97. Must have face product!

    I still don’t know exactly what this product does however I know it has helped my complexion look amazing since using it for the past few weeks. Can’t live without product for sure!
  98. Great for fine lines

    I am 35 and have only just started using this product. So far I have seen improvement in the fine lines around my eyes.
  99. If I had to pick one...

    If I had to pick one Ordinary product this would be it. (And i Love it all) Just a lovely, nourishing serum! Sinks in immediately and both me (I have very dry, sun damaged skin, with pigmentation) and hubby (extremely oily skin) use this and love it. No breakouts for hubby and super nourishing for both of us!
  100. Gorgeous

    I purchased all of the ordinary products, basically just rotate their use and they all keep my skin very clear and supple and bright. I notice that overall texture and pigmentation improves and evens out. I have combo oily skin and I'm 43. My friends notice how great my skin is after using the product. If you're confused of which product to buy, start with this one.
