    The Ordinary 'Buffet' Reviews

    So far so good.
    Only been using it for about 2 weeks, and my skin feels nicer and soft.
    בופה *Buffet
    הסרום מצויין שמה אותו בערב ואחריו קרם. . *This is an excellent serum, I put it on in the evening followed by a lotion.
    My fave The Ordinary product!
    I love this stuff! Putting it on after a cleanser and toner is the best! It feels so nice to put on! Some of the reviews say it leaves your face sticky, yes it does but once you put your moisturiser on it leaves your skin feeling great! I have noticed my skin around my mouth and smile line area is so much firmer and plumper and my skins barrier feels strong.
    i mean it works, but it isn't a life saver
    I gave this four stars because it does work and it keeps my skin incredibly well hydrated for someone who has got very dry skin but beyond its hydration, I'm not sure I see any other effects? Although I do have quite young skin so I'm not sure I could see the full extent of effects like everyone else.
    New favourite
    I'm so impressed with this product. It transformed my skin! It's better than a lot of my high-end expensive serums.
    Amazing serum
    You just need a little bit on your face before your day and night cream. Use it wisely, very good results.
    Must Have!
    Buffet is an amazing product. It helps a lot with my hormonal acne skin. I use it every night with the rosehip seed oil. It’s a must have for all.
    Amazing product!
    Believe the hype with this product! It’s been amazing for my dry skin. It’s now an essential part of my morning and evening routine. I use it straight after a cleanser and toner. It’s super hydrating! I then follow up with another serum (or retinol on an evening) and then moisturise. The hyaluronic acid in this has totally changed my skin and I no longer have dry patches. Plus my skin looks more plump and even. Highly recommend!
    The Buffet
    excellent product
    Unnecessary product
    I didn't notice any difference.
    Great improvement
    I think I have about the entire range now and being a woman over 55 I'm always told I have great skin. Since lockdown, I've had time to try all my oils etc and I can honestly see a vast change myself.
    No Difference
    I could not tell a difference at all when using this product. It just seems like an unnecessary product to involve in your routine. I find the products in their individual form work so much better.
    Good serum. I have not found any specific benefits for my skin, but also I have no complaints.
    I Love It
    My mom is currently using this and she loves the effect it gives :)
    I absolutely love this I will never not buy it now I've found it! I use it with my jade roller twice a day, my skin feels amazing
    My kind of Buffet
    I've been using this product for, I would estimate over 2 years. I honestly don't know what specific thing this product targets but it just makes my skin better; less oily, radiant and reduced fine lines. I have really oily skin and whenever I've stopped using this product, my skin would become more oily so this is now a stable staple in my skincare routine. I can see other reviews saying that this product is oily, I also used to have this problem and then I realised that you only really need three tiny dots dotted all over your face and then tap tap. I would recommend applying this product over toner and a water-based product such as the "just breathe" serum from Versed.
    Nourishing but sticky
    This serum goes on really easily, love the dropper and bottle. Skin feels really nourished and hydrated all day. Only grumble is that it feels quite sticky on my skin for 4 hours after application. It’s not a problem for night use, but is uncomfortable when applied in the morning.
    Just right
    It has everything you need and just the right formula. I have been using it for a long time and keep going back to it.
    Amazing product
    The buffet serum is amazing. I use it every morning with the caffeine solution and sunscreen and my skin feels so hydrated
    Lovely on skin
    This serum goes on the skin really well. Not sticky just slicky. I've just turned 50 so hoping that this works to keep my skin supple. I've used expensive creams in the past including la mer and this is just the same in my opinion but at a fraction of the price.
    Amazing for sensitive skin
    Second purchase of Buffet and it’s now a staple in my daily routine. I struggle with a lot of skincare due to super sensitive skin and a few oily troubles, but this is absolutely perfect for me. For super cheap too!
    The price point of this product blows me away! Full of the good stuff and your skin feels and looks beautiful.
    Buffet The Ordinary
    Nice texture and obviously change over the skin. my skin usually gets irritated easily, but not with this product.
    Buffet All In
    Great serum! You must be patient to see the results. I waited 6-8 weeks to see the results and I will buy it again next time.
    Great affordable serum
    A keeper
    This serum does so much good to your skin at a pretty low price. I noticed plumper skin and reduced fine lines after using for a few weeks. Also works great in layering with other products. Definitely a keeper.
    It’s so easy to use and leaves your skin feeling soft but not greasy. Skin looks radiant after a few weeks use. Highly recommended.
    This did nothing for me
    It's like putting water on my skin, it dries out and I don't even feel some hydration. Probably not suitable for dry skin.
    Not suitable for sensitive skin
    This product made my skin bumpy and red, and caused a burning sensation. If you have sensitive skin then stick to 100% organic and natural products.
    Worth a try
    I have almost finished the bottle and I can't say I've found it makes an enormous difference, but my partner says he can see a change in my skin so... It feels nice and works fine as a general serum, but don't expect wonders. Will try using a separate HA serum for more glow and to target fine lines but would be happy to use this again as an all-round moisturising serum, especially for the price.
    plumping effect for the skin
    I'm not entirely sure, because I started 2 products at the same time, but my skin is more even and plumped.... A slightly sticky texture first, but melts in with my moisturizer. For this price I had to try it, and I like it, but maybe I'll try another serum next time.
    Not worth it
    I have combination skin with a tendency towards acne, although I’ve learned how to control it. Had a good couple of months with no blemishes and the evening after applying this serum I had 3 whiteheads and more than normal oily T zone. I thought maybe it was because of the layering I had done with my usual skincare so a few days after the whiteheads were gone I tried again following it’s instructions without any additional steps (never fully absorbed and was tacky). Woke up next morning with more whiteheads. Not using again.
    no effect whatsoever
    i really love their brand but this made my skin feel sticky and had no effect other than making me feel like i had clear glue on my face!
    Not good for oily skin
    Didn't seem to do anything for me, except make my already oily skin very very shiny.
    nice stuff
    Feels good on, and works under retinol/night cream. Even better the fine lines around my eyes are less noticeable!
    Lovely texture, goes on like a dream, and works wonders. All for a great price! What's not to love?
    Just use it for 2 weeks on Regular basis and thank me later! :)
    Very good serum
    Up to now, I have bought this serum for multiple times and I am very satisfied with it. It does not make any miracle on my skin but it moisturizes it and it make some changes regarding tone.
    I like it
    My skin feels refreshed and plump after using this. It feels nice under moisturiser and make up so I’ve been using both in the AM & PM. I have to use it daily now! I’ve not seen any actual changes in skin tone/ texture but it does make my skin feel great :)
    Can't live without!
    One of my favourite products from the ordinary collection by far! I use buffet after I've applied the hyaluronic acid and before my moisturiser. Even my aesthetics nurse commented how plump my skin looks and asked what I've been using!
    Too sticky
    This product is too sticky for me, and with my acne prone skin it caused breakouts. It would be better suited for people with really dry and not acne prone skin
    This buffet serum it literally a buffet!!!! It has great range of ingredients. I use in the pm. It is a bit heavy so I apply it & wait for it absorb. I will be repurchasing in the future
    It might be too early to notice an improvement to my skin, but I feel good using it as there is no irritation. I will leave a another review in a few months.
    I love Buffet.
    I love this product, I really notice a difference to my skin when I use this. I ften get compliments on the tone of my skin! Would definitely recommend it. If you are a first time user please note that it can take 6 weeks before you notice a difference to your skin.
    Lovely product! After a few months of using the results have been really super.
    Lovely product! After a few months of using the results have been really super.
    The buffet
    Great stuff and for a good price. You don't need a lot so it should last a while.
    I really wanted to love The Ordinary products as I’d read so many positive reviews. But unfortunately they didn’t work with my skin. The Buffet serum made my skin dry and did nothing to enhance my complexion at all. Obviously the products just aren’t suitable for all skins but at least they are reasonably priced and I love the minimalist labelling.
    Really love this & it does work but takes a while for it to kick in.
    Brilliant stuff!
    I have very sensitive skin, imagine a mixture of rosacea, eczema and acute acne... skin care is so difficult to find without breaking the bank.... and my skin loves the Ordinary Buffet! I use it on an evening with the ordinary plant based serum... then for the daytime I use this with the ordinary hyaluronic acid serum, plus the ordinary primer is a perfect base for my makeup (I use No7 protect and perfect foundation). I will also once/twice a week use the ordinary AHA peeling solution... have been doing this for 3 months now and my skin has never been better, just love their products!
    So disappointing...
    I wish I loved it, but 2nd bottle in I’ve found it doesn’t last long, around 8 weeks, it actually make my skin drier, my go to foundation doesn’t go as smoothly as it always has. It’s back to my Advanced Night Repair one million %
    Fuzzy Little Man Peach...
    So although I enjoyed using Buffet, I eventually had to stop as I encountered the dreaded peach fuzz growth that so many others have mentioned. I did see benefits; I loved how smooth it made my skin, and it's a nice product to use. After a couple of weeks though, I had to nix it. I'll try Argireline instead.
    Great serum
    I have very sensitive skin and it’s always red on my cheeks from rosacea. This serum makes it look fresh and dewy rather than problematic and I’ve noticed a huge difference in how bright and firm my skin is. I’m 40 and have always taken good care of my skin so this serum is part of my everyday routine now.
    Without any expectation, I started to use. After a few times is my favourite product.
    My favourite!
    This product is really amazing. I have been using it twice a day for a little while now and it’s just fantastic.
    This product is sooo good! I was honestly skeptical about it but it turned out to be one of if not my favorite skincare! My skin looks so much better!
    The ordinary Buffet, brilliant in every way!
    As a new skin regimist (is that even a word) I have added this to my morning routine, after my acid toner before vit c, what a beautiful ingredient! Easily absorbed, niiiiiice texture Highly recommended
    Love it!
    Really love this product! I find a little goes a long way, and the price tag is super attractive too compared to some similar products out there! I only apply it at night but have noticed a huge difference in my skin within just a couple of weeks!
    OK at best
    Had I not have tried a different serum prior to this I would have probably rated it more.However, I find it quite sticky and that’s not how I found my other (more expensive) serum.
    Pretty satisfactory
    Definitely hydrates the skin & makes it look plumper, love it!
    اعجبني Like
    ممتاز ورائع أحببت هذا السيروم Wonderful and awesome I liked this serum
    All round perfection
    I love this product and use it regularly. My therapist commented that my skin has not deteriorated whilst using it. At this price point, it is affordable and a seriously great product punching well above its weight.
    Love this product so much. Really feels like its working and a quarter of the price of a very similar version from a luxury brand. I can’t tell the difference between this and the £40 one. Soaks easily into skin, fresh smelling and I’ve seen results in 3 wks. My skin feels firmer and looks more radiant and evenly toned. Definitely my new staple
    I struggle with any skin care products due to sensitive skin however have been using this along with other products from The Ordinary range for the last 3 weeks and have experienced no bad reactions. Lovely feel on the skin and my skin is feeling so much better. Great under makeup too!
    Excellent product- it makes my skin feel plumped up and glowing- I love it !!!
    Day 1 and 2 slight tingle after application, day 3 skin calmed down day 10 skin firm, even tone, wouldn't be without it. Great product.
    Good quality product
    Good quality product
    Skin is glowing.
    Great price and products no allergy to any The Ordinary products
    l love you
    It’s fantastic! I need you.
    An amazing value serum!
    This is my first time using The Ordinary and I have been using buffet for a month. It's a lovely serum which is doing wonders for my skin. I've had less break outs, smoother skin and it looks hydrated. The only reason for not giving 5* is because sometimes my skin gets a little greasy after using it - could just be my skin though!
    Great value
    Wonderful everyday serum at a great price. Works just as well as more expensive ones.
    One of the best serum!!!
    I love this product, I have dry skin and after using it for one month I see a huge difference on my skin, my skin is hydrated and Glowy!
    I’ve used a lot of expensive serum and moisturisers but this tops them all. My skin always felt so dry even after using a very expensive serum but as soon as I put this on my skin it’s like instant relief. I’m very wary about trying new products on my skin as I have very spot prone skin and the slightest thing can cause me a breakout but I’ve had no issues with spots since I started using this, would deffo recommend!
    I am using this in conjunction with other products, it has made my skin feel less tight and is reducing over all redness within my complexion. Its not oily and absorbs into the skin really well, without any additional residue, which is great for mornings when you're in a rush.
    I have been using this for about 4 weeks now. I have seen small improvements in my skin overall. It feels tighter, but in a good way and smoother. I haven't noticed a huge improvement in my fine lines, but will purchase another bottle when this one finishes to see if it maybe just takes a bit of time to really notice a difference in this area.
    Love this product. I apply every morning and it sets my skin up for the day. Lightweight, easily absorbed and non greasey.
    Unfortunately a disappointment
    Unfortunately I was one of the few that saw no changes with this one. I bought the supersize and I used it everyday till the end of the bottle. I felt hydration and that’s it. Not feeling the hype. Probably works for other people though.
    Awesome product!
    It is an awesome product with a great price! Works on my skin and after 3 weeks using it I feel my skin improved so much better!
    Love this!
    I am 42 years old and this product was one of the best i have used so far. My skin definitely feels very hydrated after use and it is a lovely consistency. It just feels great. I don't have much wrinkles to comment on how it works on them but i would definitely purchase again.
    One of the best from the Ordinary
    Was a bit apprehensive as used the niacinamide serum previously with a bad reaction. This has been great no reactions with 4 weeks use, has reduced size of pores, no great changes in look or feel of skin yet but we’ll see.
    Always my favourite!
    Sooo good and for a fantastic price. So hydrating but not sticky. Easily absorbed and easy to layer. I use it AM and PM and I can really see the difference.
    Visible results after 2 weeks!
    Lightweight, glowier and tighter skin.
    Really great little bottle. I'm using my fourth bottle now and I can see improved and plumped skin. Bye bye dryness, patches and itchiness!
    Mala reaccion
    Lo use durante meses y todo fue bien, las ultimas semana me ha empezado a provocar rojeces y granitos. He tenido que dejar de usarlo, no se si es mi piel que ha cambiado o un efecto a largo plazo que produce. El resto de productos de my daily routine parecen no afectarme de forma distinta. I used it for months and everything went well, the last few weeks it has started to cause redness and pimples. I have had to stop using it, I don't know if it is my skin that has changed or a long-term effect. The other products of my daily routine do not seem to affect me differently.
    Fabulous product my skin has never been so good
    Magic in a tiny bottle
    I had been using the 'Buffet' for 3 weeks and I can definitely see the results from dull, dry and meh skin to plump and hydrated!
    Great serum
    I have been using this product for nearly two weeks. My skin looks much better and my light wrinkles have disappeared. I noticed that after application my face is tight and feels like there is a lifting effect.
    100% Recommend
    This is an amazing and super affordable serum! It really gives me a soft plump skin and makes me look like I just had the best night sleep when I use it overnight. Definitely recommend!
    Not really great for oily/sensitive skin
    I thought I'd give the 'Buffet' a try given the incredibly good reviews. I used it for almost a week and I can really say it's not doing wonders for oily skins. In fact it made my skin so shiny I had to use blotting paper to remove the excess oiliness. It did seem to be okay in terms of helping my skin but can't really say for sure.
    Day 2 - winner
    Didn't know what to expect ordering this, but having read the reviews I figured I'd give it a go. This is only the second day of me using this (to give an idea, my skin is always incredibly oily by the end of the day but can be tight and dry at other times. Already my other half has identified a change in my skin tone, that my blemishes are less red and that my skin just looks better. I've got to the end of two working days using this and my skin is fab - no oily build up and still feels moisturised and fresh. Hopefully, results will continue to be impressive over time.
    I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve bought this. It leaves my skin feeling incredible and there is a noticeable change in my skin's appearance with continued use. Just adore it.
    I'm amazed!
    My skin is very very dry and dull, no matter what products I use (and I've used loads) nothing would ease the tightness on my face. I was starting to get lines between my eyebrows as well which I think was exacerbated with the dryness. Anyway, I've had this 2 days no joke. I've used it 3 times in total and my god! My skin is glowing, the lines between my brows, basically gone, lines around my mouth, gone. My skin feels and looks plumped. I am shocked that something so affordable is so damn good! Never going to stop buying this magic potion. I recommend this to anyone, thank you the ordinary for making such affordable products that work wonders!
    Amazing product
    I have used a lot of face care products over the years, I must say this one stood out. I have a very dry skin and while using it my face Never Ever got dry as it is deeply hydrating, I saw clear improvement, my friend also uses ordinary products and she swears by this one, people around her started noticing the difference and complemented her face. I must say we both are addicted to it! And will keep using it..
    Keep in mind that it is not a miracle product that the next day you will have beautiful skin, this needs days to see the results and when you see them you will feel beautiful or beautiful, this is the best for your skin.
    Don't understand what everyone is raving about
    Bought this product for my mom to help with signs of aging after all of the amazing reviews and she is very disappointed. I cannot see any difference on her as well.
    I have never used The Ordinary before or tried a product with the ingredients of The Buffet, but I feel there has been an improvement in my skin in the few weeks since I’ve tried it.
    love it
    I wasn't expecting much to be honest but the morning after I first used this I actually did a double take in the mirror (really!) I couldn't believe the difference it had made in just one application to my skin over night. I had a glow and over time the texture of my skin has also improved. Wouldnt be without it
    Will not buy again
    I bought this product bc of its raving reviews (like every other "magical" product I've ever bought). I used the entire bottle and it did absolutely nothing except for a tiny bit of hydration. The packaging is horrible. The head gets stuck every single time and the ridges on the outside damaged the skin on my palms when trying to twist
    Very good, morning routine
    Very good and versatile product, gives a glow, hydrates and generally improves the texture and look of the skin. Easy to apply, I put it on in the morning before my SPF. No adverse reaction to it at all.
    My skin feels amazing, been using a month and I love it
    Love it!
    Great product! Soaks into skin quickly and doesn’t irritate at all. I’ve got sensitive skin and this product is perfect. I have long suffered with acne and in my older years some purple scarring/uneven red skin tone. This has really helped to even out my overall appearance and give me more healthy-looking skin. Did have an initial purge/break out for around 2 weeks which quickly went down. I decided to keep going with it and glad I did. Great value and will be buying again. Apparently ultimate results are seen after 12 weeks but I’m already impressed after 3.
    Excellent dewy glow!
    Love this, easy to apply and great results overnight!
    Good product, but...
    I haven’t done anything except hydration, I’ve been using it for 3 months
    I am happy with this, the concentration is like water on your face.. immediately absorbs into your skin. With any skincare you have to give it time. The Ordinary has great products! I purchased many already & recommended to my friends & family.
    Like it
    Cheap price but good quality!
    Amazing serum
    I have lost count how many times I have brought this serum. It’s a must have. Helps plump out fines lines and really helps dehydrated skin. Sinks into the skin really well and doesn’t feel tacky like other hyaluronic acid serums.
    Must try
    A great staple in my skin routine! I have no breakout from this serum :D
    Buffet heaven
    Amazing results on my dehydrated skin. Now velvety smooth. Use it am and pm. Way better than the hyaluronic acid alone though that is good too. Love love love it.
    This is amazing! All the important ingredients of high end skincare in a simple little bottle at a fraction of the price. I use lots of the range of products from The Ordinary and highly recommend the brand. It plumps my skin and makes it look more hydrated and plumped up. It soaks into the skin quickly ready for more skincare or make up.
    Great for dry skin!
    I have a very dry skin and for a long time couldn't find a product that helped. I tried a product similar to Buffet, twice as expensive, that didn't do much. So glad I added this to my skin routine. I'm combining it with the Ordinary Granactive retinoid 2% emulsion and its the best thing so far for my dry skin.
    Love Buffet
    I have a lot of products from The Ordinary This one is a favourite :-)
    Fabulous product. Very hydrating. But non greasy.
    I've been using this for over a year now along with other Ordinary products but it's easily my favourite. Use it every night now!
    Have not finished 1 bottle yet, but i loooveeee it. Its hydrating, a little bit sticky for a minute but it will go away. This is a hydrating serum so i use another moisturizer and it just work wonderfully with other products! Best ordinary products!
    Best Buy
    It does exactly as it says and works even better when layered with the glow recipe watermelon sleeping mask. Wake up with new skin!
    Great simple Brand, that works!
    Great addition to skincare routine. The Ordinary.... is anything but Ordinary.
    This serum feels so good on my dry skin, it absorbs quickly providing hydration and a feeling of freshness. It's my favourite The Ordinary product, next time I'm going to buy a bigger bottle :)
    Love it
    I use it in the morning and after microneedling. I am very pleased, the skin is tighter and smoother, lasting a long time
    Buffet of Love
    Beautiful formula, beautiful results.
    Not for me
    Tried it out on my oily skin, it smoothed out some of my fine lines but it was way too moisturising and I could not use it. Gave it to my friend who has very dry skin and she says it has saved her life.
    Feels very sticky upon application. It does have a kind of tightening feeling. Can't honestly say whether this has in reality improved my skin, but then again, it may be something that will prove beneficial in time. But very affordable!
    Buffet The Ordinary
    Great product skin feels softer and hydrated.
    Love Buffet!
    Buffet the best product! I use it at night every day, and I love my skin. I combine Buffet with two different Ordinary products, with the Hydraulic Acid +B5 in the morning and wi the Niacinimide+Zinc in the evening. Love it!
    Fantastic product from The Ordinary with great price from Cult Beauty. Thank you!
    Love it
    Absolutely worth it
    Love this one ❤️
    Just ok, it doesn’t seem to do too much for my skin.
    The Ordinary
    Fabulous stuff! Squaline face cleanser, Buffet, Hyaluronic and Face Cream daily with Rose Hip at night. My beautician told me about The Ordinary and I have not looked back. Fantastic price too.
    super moisturizing serum, I won't be able to do without it!
    Such a great serum!! It leaves my skin hydrated and soft. The only bad thing about it that it's a bit sticky but I'm ok with that.
    I use this day and night, and it definitely brightens up my skin. I’ve been using it for the past 6 months now and I’ve seen a difference. Great value for money therefore, I would highly recommend it.
    Really sticky and once applied to the face it foams like a soap (?) definitely to be used only at night time. However, in the morning my skin seems to look and feel nice and smooth. Still waiting to see any visible results.
    Excellent value
    Great product - very effective serum, easily absorbed. Very good value when compared to other 'global brands'. Will definitely buy again.
    I have already recommended this product to two people and they are just as happy about it as myself. I have normal to dry skin, uneven colour and this serum makes it look just great + it makes whatever you put on it a lot better. I will definitely repurchase.
    The Ordinary buffet
    The Ordinary buffet. I love this serum it goes smoothly into the skin and makes the skin look dewy and young, whilst nourishing the skin I would thoroughly recommend it.
    An impressive array of assets and a pleasant base at a reasonable price.
    I like this product. I used it and saw how the skin improved: it became more even and luminous. Alternate with other products. I also like the price.
    Sooper Smooth!
    I was using a different Ordinary product but thought I'd give this a try and I definitely prefer it.
    Lovely, hydrating serum that is well worth the price.
    I love this serum. It really makes my skin look better.
    fine whey
    Excellent anti-aging product, rich in amino acids. What you need to get rid of wrinkles
    Completely love this product, will be purchasing it again.
    Amazing products!
    I love, love this brand. It really works!
    Heard about this product on YouTube so I decided to purchase it and love it.
    1st time serum
    My first time using a serum and this is a great starter product considering the price. Can feel a little sticky but good value for money.
    Just finished my second bottle. My skin looks and feels amazing. Thank you.
    Lovely serum
    I've been using this serum for about 3 weeks now and I'm really enjoying it. It helps ease the tight feeling on my forehead as I have quite dry skin. I use this in the morning after the Niacinamide and also in the evenings around my eyes.
    Great results for a good price.
    A nice hydrating serum, spreads easily without pilling. I’ve used it morning and evening under moisturiser and it definitely helps my skin feel a bit plumper and properly moisturised. I’m not sure how much better it is than a Hyaluronic Acid serum (I guess you just have to trust that the other ingredients do something over time!) but it’s less sticky and sinks in better.
    Waste of money
    I bought this for my 60 year old mother and it gave her breakouts. Really disappointing product!
    Really like this serum - I use it before moisturiser in the morning and before rosehip oil in the evening and I’ve found that my skin has become so hydrated and soft.
    Improved my skin
    Buffet makes my skincare more effective. I use this AM & PM as my first step after cleansing. It's made my 1% retinol, eye serum and hydroquinone show positive results. It's light weight, absorbs quickly and isn't sticky after it dries. This is now a mainstay in my routine.
    Love it
    Makes my skin soft and reduces the dark spots I have from acne.
    Wonderful all round serum
    Have been using this for 2 years would not be without it, seen a marked improvement in the texture of my skin.
    Highly recommend, good value, great bottle.
    I have used expensive serums and this is just as good. Highly recommend.
    Very good product, but for dry skin you need a very good hydrating cream on top.
    Perfect product!!
    This serum is magic!!
    I use this daily, make my skin feel so good. I would recommend it to everyone.
    So hydrating and lightweight! The skin absorbs it very well and it helps with fine lines
    Personally didn't do much for me
    I have very stubborn blackheads, I have quite sensitive skin with eczema, so it burned that a bit. but it does look cute presentation wise, I imagine if your skin can take a bit more than mine can this will be good for you.
    Very good product.
    A real treatie
    Sinks in very quickly and easily, definitely improves 'plumpness' of skin and leaves it feeling hydrated. I used it twice a day before other products, and have not had any breakouts.
    Break outs
    I definitely saw an improvement with hydration and plumping but unfortunately this serum gave me deep under the skin spots on my chin and nose, also enlarged pores. My skin is normally very clear so a little disappointed.
    Does nothing
    I’ve been using it on a clean face 2x everyday, since almost a month now. The good: has evened/smoothed out the texture of my skin. I suppose that’s the 'plumping' effect. The bad: my pores become more visible/prominent after application, and my complexion looks tired. I will finish up this bottle, but unsure if I’d repurchase.
    Great product
    I love this! I’d read some reviews and thought that given the great price I’d give it a go. I’m not disappointed and I’m urging all my friends to buy it!
    A big fan!
    This is an amazing product. I have been using for just over a month & my skin feels significantly softer and was recently complimented on my porcelain skin! Will definitely reorder.
    works really well
    Makes my skin plump and radiant. I use it in the mornings on slightly damp skin after toner. I would repurchase it.
    No results at all
    I've never seen any results with this product, that I bought when it was launched. The same for several other products of the brand. I recently bought the two awarded products, by UK beauty magazines, the "peptide serum for hair density" and the "marine hyaluronic serum" ... I really hope these two work, otherwise I'm done with Deciem.
    Great product
    This product is fantastic.
    Good for night time routine
    I use my fingers to apply my foundation. When using the buffet serum underneath it, my foundation gets all crumbly while Putting it on. I bought it for my morning routine, but had to change it to night time.
    I absolutely love this product.
    Such a nice lightweight serum that sinks right in. I use under my daily moisturizer and at night if I need a little more hydration. The bottle has lasted me a couple of months and I’m ready to repurchase!
    I love Cult Beauty, thanks from Turkey, buffet is good!
    Very good serum , love the feeling on my skin.
    Excellent product that includes so many skin care positives.
    Very good product!
    Started using Buffet a couple months ago, my skin is softer, better looking, and makeup goes on better.
    Happy with it
    Does what it says. My skin so plump, soft and hydrated! Fine lines diminished. It's light and non sticky. Great serum! Highly recommend!
    Loved it all the way. Non greasy absorbed well feeling skin smooth!
    Does nothing
    I had high hopes for this product with all the rave I heard about it, used it for over 2 months with zero visible difference. Won't be buying again.
    I really like this product!
    Light, non-greasy serum, which can be used under usual creams. I like this product.
    Amazing...buying 2 more
    Skin feels so lush and soft even after washing face can feel the suppleness.
    Great! Was able to see results within the second day already!
    Really nice
    Amazing product, the first time I have the feeling a serum is actually plumping my skin and improving the texture. I highly recommend it.
    I am using a selection of Ordinary products, this being part of my morning routine before the primer then make up. It goes on smoothly and is easily absorbed. Since starting this range 2 month ago my skin is glowing, pores less visible and redness much improved. Even better is the fact I know it’s not hurting animals, or my bank balance! 5 ⭐️
    Made me break out
    This product made me break out even though I don't have sensitive skin and other products from this brand are fine for me
    Not for sensitive skin
    It made my skin scratched, burned and got red everywhere, not for sensitive skin like me. Will not buy it again
    I feel loved by the buffet
    Nice feeling, every time when using it (and any other The Ordinary products, not sure about caffeine thought, I have dry skin, I feel that I am pampering and improving my image. Bought my favourite acids for my friends as Christmas presents as well.
    Fresh faced
    I’ve been gradually trying to reduce the amount of make up I wear day to day and Buffet has helped my skin look plump, clear and glowing. I use it alongside a nightly splash of rosehip oil and a jade roller. I’ve not had any breakouts and it’s helped my skin look fresh even as we start Christmas party season.
    Fantastic product... my skin has never looked so good. I didn’t think anything would help my under eye area but this has plumped up the skin, reduced the bags and smoothed out the appearance of the deep wrinkles. My whole face is glowing. Will definitely be buying again.
    My skin really missed this..
    I ran out of Buffet, which I use as a serum, under moisturiser and spf 50...and I really missed it. My skin felt drier and looked older. Moisturiser consumption increased. Those two drops a day make all the difference.
    I have acne prone skin and I've used this product for more than 7 months. I haven't observed any break out all this time. I love it.
    Love it!
    I came across The Ordinary products earlier this year and my skin has never looked so good. This serum is very soft and lightweight, sinks in quickly, and is slowly but surely regenerating my skin. Incredible price for an incredible product.
    It really makes my skin look plumper and less tired in the morning.
    It's quickly absorbed.
    The Buffet
    I am 48 and I have been using this for 3 weeks now. The results are great! I also bought for my mother who is 72 and she is really satisfied. My friends have noticed the changes and have asked me to order again for them.
    Bought this for my mum who was suffering with painful cystic adult acne. After using it for a only a week it has calmed down her acne and redness, all while giving her skin an amazing glow!
    It feels good.
    Brilliant Buffet
    I ADORE this product. I have been using it morning and night for a few weeks now and can really see a difference in my skin. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed.
    Amazing !!
    I love this serum. It has become one of my must have. I noticed the firming of my face very quickly. I don't have any lines or wrinkles and I believe this serum will help me keep it that way.
    I have used it for 1 month, it makes my skin moist and smooth. Thanks, Buffet.
    Wonderful product
    Great product and amazing price for the quality.
    Great Value
    ***English Translation*** I see that I can't leave the ordinary! It is my life's love
    It’s An Illusion
    At first I thought this product was a god send. I’ve started developing frown lines. After a few weeks I noticed that my fine lines were faded. But when I haven’t put the product on I notice my lines are the same with no difference. The product creates a reflective film on your face that creates an illusion of fine lines disappearing. They are still there. When the light hits the film, it appears your skin is line free and glowing. I’ve used other products from ordinary which have been fantastic. This one isn’t their strongest.
    My sister in law recommended it, I'm happy I accepted the challenge, my skin feels fresher and more healthy
    Good budget anti-aging serum
    It is the cheapest anti-aging serum that actually works for me. Apply both AM and BM for one month and my skin becomes more smooth.
    It is amazing but for eyelashes/eyebrows
    I started using it on my face but I did not see a difference by using it. For some reason I started using it on my eyelashes and eyebrows and let me tell you IT WORKS WONDERS. My eyelashes grew and look great without mascara and my eyebrows are way thicker. I already bought a second bottle
    Totally loved this product!
    It made a noticeable difference in my skin.
    Didn't work
    I'm very disappointed with all the hype associated with this product. My skin started breaking out on the chin in small white bubbles under the skin after using it for 4 weeks. I don't think it added any benefits so I stopped using it.
    I love this product. I haven’t been using it many weeks, but people are commenting on my skin and I think a huge age spot I have is fading. I will definitely be buying again.
    Gives a great base for makeup
    I can't speak on the anti-ageing benefits as I don't have anything to speak of (yet...) but I have noticed it gives my skin a great surface for makeup when used under a moisturiser. I suffer from dry patches on my cheeks and around my nose that always show up badly when I wear makeup - using this really helps or even eliminates that issue.
    Best product ever
    I loved this wonderful product for moisturizing and masking facial wrinkles.
    Amazing Product
    Completely revitalised my skin within a couple of weeks! Highly recommend this product. Goes on quite wet but all the goodness sinks satisfactorily into your skin within minutes and it looks replenished instantly. Perfect for a busy mum lacking sleep!
    It really works!
    Absolutely love this product, my skin looks & feels better since I started using it, so much so that when I went for my regular facial my beautician asked if I'd changed my skin products because my skin was looking fabulous - she's now using it herself.
    Love it
    Love this product! My skin feels smoother and more hydrated. My mum love's it as well, it's done wonders for her skin.
    This serum is honestly magic. I work very early shifts (5am) and struggle to even think about putting makeup on in the morning. After washing my face, I apply this serum and it makes my skin glow instantly. My skin looks healthy and nourished, no need for makeup!
    Absolutely love this
    My skin has never felt so good. Lots of comments on how good my skin looks! Amazing!
    Extra ordinary
    Thought I would start applying these products, even though I'm in my seventies, never too old to try new things. Very pleased with results, fresher looking skin, also keeps make up looking good all day long. Will be trying more of the range.
    The Ordinary
    Cult Beauty are a brilliant company. As well as fast despatch and delivery in perfect condition, they notify when particular items are back in stock. On the phone they are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Many thanks.
    I love this product. It has quickly become a staple in my skincare regime. It has a lovely texture and feels great on the skin, perfect to use both morning and evening. I always buy two so I have a spare!
    All time best
    I've been using this serum twice a day for about six months, and I can't praise it enough. Buffet makes the skin glow from within and it hydrates and plumps the skin so that fine lines disappear -- and all you need is two drops! I'm addicted!
    The perfect Serum
    This serum is just perfect for me. My skin is not particularly sensitive or problematic, but I have just turned fifty and I wanted something to help me with the first fine lines. This product just doubles the effect of my day cream, the skin is bright and smooth. Love it.
    Let the Face Enjoy the Feast
    Feel my face actually glow after using this serum, the experience was so great so I bought for my mom and friends as well, and they all love it. I will definitely buying it again and again.
    Good price, you only need a drop or two so should last ages. Absorbs quickly.
    MIRACLE! I can not praise this product enough. I have never received so many compliments about my skin (I am 58, dry skin). It makes my skin look glowing without any sense of grease, without visible pores, just beautiful. I have recommended it to a few girlfriends in my age or older and everybody is extremely pleased with it. Some of my friends use it as a single moisturiser, I use it as a primer with oil on top.
    Buffer Serum!!! No more foundation, just only healthy and glow skin! Thank you Buffet!
    Girls!! I found for myself a real solution for my skin. I am not allowed to use a heavy moisturizer, because it blocks my pores, so I am allowed to use only a light version for skin such a serum. I have been using Buffet more than 2 months and literally, I'm not using foundation or any makeup. My skin looks healthy and mate. Also after using this product for a month, the lines did disappear from my skin. That's the best product I have been using so far. Fully Recommend! P.S. I'm 28 years old
    Quiet miracle serum
    So last year I bough a haul of The a Ordinary products. This being one. Within a few days of using them I noticed unbelievable results I was using Vitamin c 23%, Retinoid 2%, Argiraline 10%, Alpha lipoic acid, Caffeine, moisturizing factors & AHA BHA peel, hyaluronic acid and the buffet. My skin was good then I had a some personal stuff happen and I stopped looking after my skin for some time. Well a few months ago I decided it’s time to start looking after my skin again so I re-ordered but buffet was out of stock and I didn’t think it did that much anyway. Well was I wrong. I didn’t notice the insane improvements I’d noticed first using the Ordinary after a couple of months it came back in stock I ordered it and now I’m getting the results I remember. This is a fab edition to your regimen and makes a huge difference in the results of your skincare. I would never ever be without it again. I now own so many The Ordinary products I’m just a few away from having the whole line it’s a bit of a addiction actually I have a drawer full. I used to use Estée Lauder, Dior, Lancôme and never saw anything like the results I get from the ordinary. I still use Clinique cleanser, cleansing balm & foaming cleanser & Sisley lip & eye contour cream & Farsali rose gold elixir & the odd bit of Dior or La Mer but my the Ordinary products & my Clarisonic are the true stars of my skincare regimen & the buffet is one of my top products.
    Must have item - BUFFET!
    Repurchase again and again!
    Amazing product. Recommended to all my friends.
    Fantastic product
    The Ordinary Buffet is amazing. My skin looks & feels great after using this. It’s light & great for the summer. Also good for layering other products on top. The price is unbelievable & I am totally hooked. I’ll definitely be buying this again.
    Love it
    It so good.
    I'm 62 and have been using moisturiser for years, but The Ordinary skin care range has changed my outlook completely. I am lucky in that I don't have many wrinkles anyway, but this range has improved my skin tone, tightened and made my face look fuller. Feels a little sticky when first applied, but soon dries in. Thoroughly recommend.
    A great product and so easy to use.
    Love this serum. Have been using this serum for a half year and buy it all the time.
    What a difference
    For me, this really works. I am in my late 50's and until quite recently I didn't really do skin care. This has had more effect than the Ordinary's 2% retinol in squalane, or even consistent use of moisturisers. This product looks unattractive, just like egg white, but it plumps up my skin amazingly well and has produced a kind of glow that means I don't need to bother with much in the way of camouflage. You need just one drop - which is a large drop because of the consistency - and to allow it to soak in before attempting to add extra layers of moisturiser. I thought that this kind of effect was only available to rich ladies - so I am delighted to order a second bottle at only £12.50!
    It's just amazing! First, try and my skin feels softer and for a cheaper price compare to other skin care products it is a good catch. Definitely would repurchase again =)
    Great result
    I noticed the improvement! From dull tired skin to a glow. Even my boyfriend said my skin was looking great. I've tried all sorts of products over the years for combination, acne prone, dull skin with visible pores and this helps my general skin health and look all in one. Yes, it's sticky when it goes on but it settles quick. I'm ordering bottle 2.
    Not sure
    I have dry sensitive acne prone skin, I liked the serum when I first started using it but I think it breaks me out, probably because it’s thick and may clog pores. If you don’t have sensitive skin you may enjoy it.
    It's ok
    Not convinced this is actually doing anything to my skin but I'll continue to use until the bottle is finished. However saying that it has helped my eyebrows, as I had one brow that was a little sparse and is now as full as the other, and my lashes have grown in volume since using this.
    I must say I was skeptical about this serum ad it contains so much stuff and I thought this could be not as good as other serums BUT... I'm happy I bought it for me (31), and my mother (57). At first feels sticky but It rather behaves as a primer (I use this in the morning before my creams and makeup, and in the PM I use the retinol 0.5%) and I can noticeably see my skin less dehydrated and more nourished. On the first days, it stang a little bit but had no bad reactions at all. Let's also mention that I've got my order in LESS THAN 5 WORKING DAYS to Italy, so I wanna thank the Cult Beauty staff for their amazing work!
    Amazing! You will not be disappointed!
    I have hormonally induced acne, huge pores, acne scarring, dry and dull skin. I have tried everything high end to the drug store to improve my skin with no result beyond lightly moisturising. I have been using this serum for a couple of weeks morning and night with nothing else at all and it's working miracles. My pores are smaller, my skin is absolutely softer and it's perfectly moisturised. Every day I use it I'm seeing an improvement. I'd buy this at twice the price it's an absolute lifesaver! You will not be disappointed.
    OH MY GOD!
    I absolutely love this serum, I use it every morning after I cleanse and tone and before I put my make up on, and every night after I've cleansed and toned. I use one whole dropper of serum and press it into my skin. A whole dropper is a lot of serum but my skin is really thanking me for it. My skin is a lot less oily, a lot brighter and fresher and a lot healthier!
    So far so good!
    I've only been using this for few days but already my skin feels softer and far more hydrated than ever before, I've not noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin but pores do seem a little smaller and lines seem reduced so I'm a happy bunny! The serum is watery and takes a bit if getting used to, especially if your used to serums like Dr Sebagh that are thicker and leave the skin tighter, this doesn't really leave my skin feeling tight, it takes a wee while to get into my skin and pools a bit around my nose so tap it in gently! I've been using the 100% squalane as well for hydration but need to use that sparingly as it's so oily on my skin. I'd be happy to keep repurchasing the buffet though.
    All round hero serum
    Fantastic serum jam-packed with peptides which left my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Fantastic value for money and truly effective.
    My skim loves this. I have quite sensitive skin and no issues just really fresh results.
    Outstanding Results !
    I purchased the 'Buffet' alongside the 'Matrixyl 10%' and have been using them for a month now, both am an pm. Rightly or wrongly I mix them both together because although they are similar ingredients, I wanted something with Argireline in it as well as a high % of Matrixyl. And as I couldn't get hold of the Ordinary's 10% Argireline to go alongside the Matrixyl 10% anywhere, I decided to go with the Buffett that has 5% Argireline in it. Anyway the results for me personally are nothing short of miraculous. and I don't say that lightly either. Despite me looking after my skin since I was a teenager, (I'm now 44) and although I have used SPF all that time too and avoided the sun, only now do I realise that SPF15, as found in most moisturisers, is not enough and the everyday contact with the sun has caused damage to my skin. So I turned to the Ordinary after reading so many positive reviews and having spent nothing short of a fortune on skincare products promising the earth, not one I have tried ( and there have been too many to even count) have ever come close to giving me the results this serum has. My fine lines and deeper wrinkles are softening and look far less visible, my skin feels so much softer and hydrated and its got a lovely glow to it. my skin feels a bit firmer and my whole face looks as if it been ironed out! this is no exaggeration because to me it took a lot of years off me, let alone the years I've spent trying to correct all the signs of ageing and damage. Plus the best thing its done for me is that has its made an awful scar that I have had on my left cheek since I was 20, look a lot less visible too. Every day the scar is getting less visible and for that, I am truly happy for and grateful to this serum for, because for 24 years I have tried every scar serum, lotion and cream going and nothing again has worked. I cannot recommend this serum highly enough and considering the results I am getting I will be repurchasing and I will go on record to say its working for me and with continued use it my skin will only get better. Thank you The Ordinary ! x
    I finished this serum a while ago, it's lightweight, not irritating, with a really incredible price tag, it layers well. All those sound really good points, but I'm struggling thinking if I had a real benefit or I had a placebo effect. I repurchased it to gift to my mum and see if I could see a difference in her skin, since she uses barely nothing on her skin.
    So many peptides, so little money
    This product is another winner from The Ordinary. Light on my skin and plays well with all the other stuff that I put on my face. I use it to alternate with more expensive peptide serums (like I use most of the Ordinary products) so it is hard for me to know which product does what, but this is a powerful formula and very pleasant to use.
    Pleasantly surprised
    The effects of this serum aren't dramatic, but they're definitely notable, especially for the price. My skin looks brighter and more plump the mornings after I use this, and I'll definitely be repurchasing it.
    Light and lux
    This serum caught me out at first, it is so light it almost feels like water. However, don't be fooled - the effects are moisturising and hydrating without the oily residue you get with some serums. To be honest it took a little getting used to but I now love it and will be buying again.
    Good starter serum
    It's not the most hardworking serum in my opinion but can't argue for magical results at that price point. I like the inclusion of peptides so this is a great starter serum especially if you're just dipping your toes into a more extensive skincare routine. It didn't do massive things to my skin but kept it at a nice, hydrated balance.
    At first I didn’t think it does anything more than just moisturise but someone asked me what I was using as they noticed my skin looked radiant and bright so yes, I am happy with that :) And the skin doesn’t feel sticky after you put your moisturiser on, it feels great, I agree with some other reviewers!
    I absolutely love using it and I recommend it to everyone.
    Not great for me
    This just left my skin feeling sticky and looking shiny. Also had a few breakouts using it.
    When I say holy grail I don’t mean it lightly
    Holy. Grail. Since using this serum, starting around a year ago, my dry combination skin has become more evenly hydrated, bouncy, smooth, level, and overall glowy. I will use this until the day I die. Also, doesn’t pil when used under a lot of products, and I lather that sh*t
    Great staple product
    I love this serum and it’s been a staple in my skincare routine for about 2 years now, would highly recommend to those getting into using serums & looking for a boost of hydration.
    this product
    I have been using it few months don't see much of a difference but does help with my breakouts keep the flares ups down.
    Like it says on the label
    This is so great at remoisturising my winter skin. I use it daily in the colder months under a thicker cream and swear by it.
    Amazing product!
    I've recommended this to many friends and really felt it helped with the overall look of my skin.
    Really like it, wish it was a little cheaper
    Bought this one on a recommendation and although I do love it, I wish it was more on par with the price of other products from The Ordinary. I get that it's a multi-functional one, but I'm not sure I see more benefit from it than other serums in the range. Goes down quick as a result of using twice a day. When it runs out, I'll probably try other options before deciding whether to invest in this again.
    Not bad, not good
    Didn’t notice any difference; didn’t make me break out or affect my skin but didn’t help it either
    Great First Impression
    It’s my first time trying this and it has been good so far. Feels really nice on the skin, (I use 3 drops & a basic face moisturiser) and my skin feels soft and clean.
    Seems nice
    Like this a lot.
    Super Bouncy
    I have been using this product for around a month now and noticed results immediately. So hydrating, forehead lines are disappearing, skin looks plump, younger and dewy. Consistency is thick and easy to apply - pat-down rather than rub in or it goes a bit foamy. Really great in the cold dry weather. Don't feel like I need to moisturise after using this. Worth noting that I use Niacinamide first and follow with Buffet and have found this to be a great combination.
    I love it!
    The Ordinary "Buffet"
    Makes your skin glow! What else can a girl ask for? ;)
    Unfortunately not for me....
    The "Buffet" serum made my skin break out....
    Fantastic product
    I use this product with the Rose Hip Seed Oil by The Ordinary. It leaves my skin glowing and soft. I will continue to use these serums.
    It’s fine
    I was excited to try this but after many weeks of continual use, I can’t work out what the benefits are. It feels nice to put onto the skin but no lasting improvements for me.
    Outstanding value
    The Ordinary's Buffet is a wonderful product packed with skin-soothing ingredients without costing a fortune. I've just purchased my third bottle of Buffet and appreciate it being available through Cult Beauty. I wholeheartedly recommend Buffet for soothing redness and hydrating without heavy oils. I have sensitive, reactive skin. I can experience redness and tight, uncomfortable skin on my face aggravated by stress, cold weather and other environmental factors. I'm wary about what I put on my skin. I typically mix or layer skincare formulas to keep my skin smooth and healthy looking. This product works best for me added to a couple of other serums I use daily before my sunscreen.
    Makes my skin look and feel happier.
    Great product
    1st times purchased Buffet. After used a week. I felt my skin is smooth and small wrinkles is reduce a bit. Wish after a month will giving me great results.
    The Ordinary
    I started using this product only 2 weeks ago. I am yet to see results, however, I see that the product leaves my skin feeling smooth and grease-free. My daughter recommended it and I look forward to having better skin.
    I recommend this serum. This is the best for me. I have been using this for months. I have combination skin prone to acne. This serum gives me balance and hydrates me. I use it in the morning and niacinamide plus zinc in the evening. Great.
    Great serum! Like everyone else in The Ordinary, I am very pleased delivered to Ukraine within one week!
    Gave me little bumps
    Wanted to like it as much as the hype but after 2 days use it gave me little salt sized pimples under my skin in the area applied that wouldn’t go away for a month after discontinued use. bit disappointed.
    Great product and company
    Arrived promptly, great price and wonderful product.
    I use Buffet with a combination of other ordinary products. I’ve really noticed the difference in my skin, looks firmer and more radiant I also rub any excess over my hands when I do my face with my ordinary products and have seen a difference with them as well.
    Great product
    I have been using this for nearly two years. I only wish that these products were around when I was young but still it does the job well. Started using it when two years ago I bought a new serum from a well known high street chemist. It was £38 and even when I used it sparingly it ran out after two weeks. Just a great big waste of packaging and a tiny amount of product. Won’t use anything else than this.
    Works for me, I'm black, don't expect instant results
    So I am a review freak and really selective about the things I put on my face as sometimes my skin can become irritated quickly. This was my first time trying this product, and to be honest it was last on my list of wants. All the other products I wanted to try were sold out, so I was kinda stuck with this but now i'm in love. The first time applying the product felt weird. It was sticky and tight BUT the stickiness goes away after a few weeks. I have combination skin, and I get the odd spots but you need to have a face routine and be patient before you see changes. My skin changed within a couple of weeks. My face feels tighter, smoother and I get complimented all the time. The only con is the fact it doesn't fade dark marks/high pigmentation that quickly - this product alone won't fix that issue. My skin isn't 'perfect' but you can tell it looks healthier. Definitely worth a try at least, especially for the price. This is a honest review - I got my brother and my mum hooked on this stuff and i'm only on my 1st bottle. Also you don't need much. Once your face gets used to the product it spreads, and I use AM and PM.
    When I first started using The Ordinary products (about three or four years ago) my skin was transformed. Not sure if they've changed their formulas but my skin doesn't respond to any of their products anymore which is unfortunate. Used two bottles of this and I saw no difference.
    Very good so far
    Been using for 1 month and think it's a great serum for the price point.
    Bad reaction
    Wanted to love as the reviews are great, but just didn’t agree with my fair, dehydrated & combination skin. Almost immediately felt burning sensation on the skin around my mouth, followed by lots of little bumps and the following day, some rather sore, red and tight cheeks and forehead. I also didn’t love the texture - mine was lumpy almost? Anyway, for the price is was worth a try and will gift to a friend to see if they have more luck!
    Life saver!
    This grail really do what it says!!!
    Amazing product
    Would recommend!
    The serum leaves your skin plump, layers very well with other serums and my night oil.
    I really liked using this serum, right ingredients at such a low price. Its fades my dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. I will recommend this to others.
    Best product for anti aging
    Drink for skin
    I would not be without this now, it’s like a drink of water for the skin. It soaks in and leaves nothing but refreshed hydrated skin. I am 50 and have noticed a huge improvement on the lines around my eyes. Little miracle.
    I love it
    Good for sensitive skin
    I have dry and sensitive skin and this sank in without stinging. A little goes a long way and I felt it gave a long lasting hydration barrier.
    The serum
    I didn't mind using it but did not see much difference besides better hydration.
    Good but not out of this world
    I purchased buffet after seeing recommendations from dermatologist and skin specialist, to add an anti-aging to my skin care routine (which till now is very basic). My skin is healthy and balanced only starting to have some expression lines around the eyes when smiling... I have been using buffet for about two weeks (and broke a bottle so had to interrupt the treatment for a week until I got the other bottle) so I am not expecting magic. It does feel like my skin is more hydrated, brighter and smoother however I am also using niacinamide and cerave so it could be a combination of the whole routine. In short, the product seems good quality, didn’t give me any reaction, you only need a few drops so the bottle will last months and the price is very good. As I have only used it for a couple of weeks and didn’t notice a magical improvement I’m not giving the 4/5 stars but I will update my review in a few months when I had the chance to use it for longer.
    Lovely serum
    I love this serum it goes in so well and soaks into my skin quickly. Lovely product! I've been using it for 6 months now and apply twice a day. Will be getting my 3rd bottle soon x
    Good product
    I have been using The Ordinary "Buffet" for a few weeks but it is too soon to notice any improvement to my skin. It is a lovely product to use.
    The holy grail of skincare :)
    Lovely product! I've been using it for a few months now -applied in the evening before rosehip oil and moisturiser.
    Visible difference
    Using this along with a new cleanser has visibly changed my skin within 3 weeks use - I have combination skin and it's really nourishing and seems like it plumps out my skin a little. looks great and I've stopped bothering with foundation I just use a little moisturiser and concealer!
    Works perfectly for my dry skin.
    Buffet - good
    I love this a lot. Reasonable price and effective. I spent only a little money and got the same results as buying an expensive product. I save money and look good!
    The best
    4 out of 5
    This is the second serum I’ve used from The Ordinary and tbh expected greater things than it’s cheaper alternative. My skin type is normal and in quite good condition already so I’m not sure if the product has actually made any difference or not, I still feel like I have fine lines and the same tightness as before. I’m going to finish this bottle then not use for a month and see if I notice any difference. All round happy with it though, The Ordinary products and prices can’t be beaten ❤️
    New fave
    I’ve bought all the serums from the ordinary and this one is by far the best lovely texture and makes your skin so smooth literally wouldn’t be without it now my skin is so soft and noticed less dullness!
    Effective and soothing
    Very good for sensitive skin.
    This product is lovely. I have been using it for a few weeks now and my skin feels tighter. I can actually feel it work when I apply it at night. Really good price which is always a bonus.
    So it’s been 10 days that I’m using this serum. I just tell you that it’s magic. My skin looks clearer, bright and there is a positive change overall. Best part is that my blackheads have reduced from my nose. I’m so happy about this so far. Don’t miss.
    One of the best products I’ve used
    This product helped me clear out my skin as well as reducing the smile lines I have. I’m only 22 but my smile lines were becoming quite obvious and I wanted to try something to help prevent any more fine lines appearing and this was a life saver.
    I noticed a difference straight away, my skin looks nourished and hydrated.
    Fingers crossed
    So I have received this product today. I’m very excited to use it. Giving 5 stars because so many people can’t be wrong and I want to be one of them. Very excited. Will add my another review soon.
    Exciting buffet
    Bought this last week and so very impressed. I think it has tightened my skin up but I DEFINATELY notice how soft my skin is.
    Conservation Serum for my dry sensitive skin
    I use this serum when my skin is not being troublesome & I want to maintain its quality without over saturating with products. I am glad to have this serum for when I travel but in terms of improving my skin I personally need targeted treatments so I have semi-retired this product. Would certainly recommend if you are looking to add 1 extra step to your skincare and you want to perk up your skin.
    The good buffet
    Nice sensation on the face... I use it after the vit.c in the morning, to soon to be sure what it really does, but i think my face is being toned for sure and the make up after ''the buffet'' stays on perfect,although it needs some time to be absorbed and lose the ''stickiness'' .
    Lovely addition to my skincare!
    I use this in conjunction with other products but it has totally transformed my skincare routine! My skin is more plump and fresh looking and it’s one of my favourite products in the range. I’ve used it both AM & PM but now find it more effective as part of my PM routine - However I would like to also mention that it sits so well under makeup when I’ve used it in the AM and my skin looked so smooth!
    Great product.
    Great moisturizing for oily skin, just a few drops and skin feels amazing.
    great value
    God knows how many bottles of this I have finished! The best value hyaluronic acid I have used
    It works fine... feels good on the skin.
    Amazing serum
    My skin is bright and hydrated. I am very impressed with the ordinary products for the price! I have paid more money for products that don't work as well as this.
    The Buffet
    Exactly as described, I've done some research before purchasing any of them and they live up to the hype. Super hydrating.
    The Ordinary - Buffet
    My latest addition to my Ordinary collection, always good value and I love this product!!!
    Very good
    I love this product, it really feels as if it is feeding my skin. I'm an old bird and this is one of the best serums I have used. My skin is firmer and brighter and at a good price too. Believe me I have used lots over the years and paid higher prices for them. I'll be sticking to this one from now on.
    Get on this bandwagon!
    I love this stuff. Been using it for a few months twice/once daily, and about 3/4 through the bottle. Unlike some, it did take a few days for me to notice a result, but I would guess that has something to do with how exhausted/stressed I/my skin have been (2nd-year exams, boo). This stuff is a complexion savior, it gives me a really fresh, dewy face that feels so hydrated, regardless of how late I was studying the night previous. I have combination skin with persistent dry patches (chin, nose - lifelong battle) but prone to oiliness, and this stuff (with their moisturising factors in suspension) has, dare I say, seemed to mostly eliminate these problems. Whilst I can't say it has an instant effect on blemishes, I have found that with morning/evening applications, they do seem to heal faster and do not get quite as bad as without. I just bought my friend a bottle (also a combination skin sufferer) and she's reporting great initial results too - highly recommend.
    4 Stars
    Overall leaves your skin feeling velvety and soft, I have been using for few weeks now but notice no real change in my skin unfortunately. The packaging is good and application is easy and straight forward. Price is fair and good for any budget.
    Buffet - The Ordinary
    Amazing product
    Ordinary Buffet
    Outstanding and highly recommend to all women over the age of 50! Plumps and hydrates!
    Love it!
    I swear by all products by The Ordinary and this one if my favourite! I use it in the morning and before I go to bed and sometimes I apply makeup on it without adding any moisturiser. It hydrates my skin without making it oily or greasy and without drying it either. LOVE IT!!!!!
    No big difference
    Maybe because I don't have particularly problematic skin, I bought it for hyper pigmentation and haven't noticed any difference.
    I love this product. I use it every morning and it tightens my skin and leaves it feeling silky (once the serum has absorbed).
    So far so good
    This is the first The Ordinary product I’ve bought because I’ll be honest, they offer so much it’s hard to know what to choose so I went for the buffet because it seems to do a bit of everything. I’ve been using for two weeks now (morning and night) as part of a renewed effort to use this national lockdown to improve my skin. At first, I found the serum so sticky and felt horrible on my face, it says for use in AM and PM and I was wondering how this would sit under makeup and other products because it was so sticky and tacky. Bear in mind I haven’t been wearing makeup in lockdown and so it was just a thought. BUT now I understand how to put it on my skin it seems to have totally transformed and feels considerably less tacky. I use three drops, warms up rubbing it together with my fingertips, and then press the serum in. Don’t rub. Now I think it’s great and definitely recommend, my face looks clearer!
    I’ve been using for 6 weeks and my skin looks bright and clear, I’ve had loads of compliments over the past few weeks and have recommended this product to loads of friends.
    Great product, I have been using for over a month now (with additional The Ordinary products as part of my daily treatment) and I can definitely tell it is great. Interesting packaging at first, good product that helps the skin being better hydrated and so on - overall I'm not regretting buying it.
    I love this product I use it morning and night
    Love this serum!
    I’ve been using Buffet nearly 1 year now, love this product! It really helps my dull & aging skin to glow again. I’m using it every other night when I don’t use my Tretinoin
    Lovely silky liquid plumps
    Works very well to plump skin and just texture feels so good
    like it!
    I feel like my skin is more vibrant, and I think there's a noticeable difference in fine lines.
    Truly a feast for your skin!
    シンプルイズベスト ///// Simple Is Best
    洗顔後、すぐに使用します。ニキビ改善しました。///// After washing your face, use this immediately. My acne has improved.
    Really happy with this product
    I've been using this for just a few days and I feel it's making a bit difference to my skin. I've recently started to feel self conscious about a fine line creeping across the middle of my forehead, and just generally my skin starting to age/look dull. I'm a little overwhelmed by products on the market and where to start, so thought I'd start with a good value one people rave about here. After a few days the line across my head is disappearing in parts... My skin is plumper and brighter. So... early days but for the decent price this is more than worth it and can't seem me doing without it now! It's started me on my 'proper' skincare journey for sure.
    Good serum
    Good serum but leaves my skin a bit dry. Not obvious which cream goes with it. More info on each serum's and cream functionality and use would have been helpful.
    Superb serum... many bottles bought, and many to come in the future.I just wish the bigger version of it becomes available again. Excellent service too. Highly recommend it.
    Lockdown joy
    Package of The Ordinary arrived just before lockdown. Nice to have some skincare products to play with while you’ve got time on your hands. Lovely quality and value. Especially loved the buffet serum. As Arnie said I’ll be back.
    Very good!
    Does an honest job with great results at a modest price tag. Amazing product. It's great for different skin types and age categories, I'm in my early 40s and this has been great in my daily morning routine. Absorbs well and quickly, provides immediate hydrating and plumping results, spf and make up goes on smoothly without any pilling. Cannot go wrong with this one.
    בסך הכל הוא בסדר
    אני משתמשת בו כמעט חודש, הוא רגיל, נותן לחות, לא יכולה להגיד שהוא עושה קסם. בשביל המחיר הוא פשוט מצוין אך הוא רגיל, נפסג ממש מהר I have used it for almost a month, it is very average, gives moisture however I can not say it makes magic. For the price, it is just great, but it's average.
    Perfect product
    I love it. My skin looks better after using this serum
    I really like The Ordinary's philosophy, as a person from the field, and I can say I do adore this serum. Before, I was using the famous Esteé Lauder Advanced Night Repair and the ratio of price/quality is way better with The Ordinary. On its own, it's not as enriched as Estee, but I combine it with other products and I like I can tailor the routine to my needs and preferences for fraction of the price. Cool and honest product, I love it.
    Love it
    My daughter started me on The Ordinary products and I love them. Buffet is great and does just what it says on the bottle
    Worth it!
    Amazing product!
    A staple
    I have very sensitive, eczema-prone, hormonal skin and trying to find products that don't irritate it can prove challenging. This serum has caused me to neither breakout nor flake up. It really plumped up my skin giving me a healthier appearance after a particularly bad patch of eczema spread across my face. Don't get me wrong, I doubt this product will change your life but it is well worth the price for a noticeable boost to the skin. I would recommend and will repurchase when required.
    Simply fabulous
    It’s been 15 days since I started using this product and my skin feels great. Super happy with the product. I’m so glad I bought this.
    Очень понравился, буду заказывать ещё. Спасибо Loved it, I will order more. Thanks
    Ordinary skincare
    I use a selection of Ordinary products (Buffet, hyaluronic acid, caffeine eye solution and retinol) they are great products and very affordable. The caffeine eye solution is something I can't live without.
    Love it
    I really love it. Feels good on skin, keep skin hydrated and plump. I wanted to incorporate peptides in my routine and I am definitely loving it. Can't say about anti ageing effects but I am really impressed with it. And the price point is awesome too.
    This is a fantastic serum, I use it morning and night and together with the other Ordinary products I use, has definitely improved the condition of my skin.
    Love it
    Love this serum. My skin looks much more better!
    Improved my skin
    I love this product and it is very light on the skin. It soaks in very quickly and even though I have very sensitive skin, that reacts to the smallest things, nothing bad happened to my skin with Buffet. I will definitely buy it again.
    A feast for dry skin
    First time trying Buffet serum after reading reviews and I’m very impressed - it’s a keeper! Been using most nights under my night cream for a few weeks, and my 60 yr old fair skin that’s always been prone to dryness feels more supple - a blessing with central heating and winter weather. Delivery was quick too, will be ordering again.
    The ordinary buffet
    Excellent product at an excellent price
    Loved it
    I use it as part of bedtime routine and it has really changed my skin. My wrinkles has reduced in appearance, so yayy. I am a person about to reach my 30 and wanted to add some anti-aging products to my routine, so this was it.
    Seeing benefits but sticky texture
    I use this as part of my evening skincare routine - it’s too sticky on my skin to use in the am. I like the plumped up effect it gives my complexion in the morning, and it’s certainly good value for money but I find the texture of it and the slightly odd smell a bit off putting
    Love it
    Amazing! This is a best buy. Hydrates my skin and leave it shine and soft!
    The ordinary Niacinamid
    Good product
    Buffet serum
    Like this, though I have taken to just wearing at night due to it leaving my face 'over dewy' (I have oily skin anyway). Easy to apply.
    This product is amazing!!!! I cannot stress that enough because it's a big love of mine. It leaves a sticky feeling but I honestly enjoy that as I feel other products stick to it better. I have combination skin and this is perfect for both morning and night use before my moisturiser.
    The Ordinary!
    Best products ever & great shipping. Overall very good service :)
    Great product!
    Great product. And for the price it costs even better.
    Замечательный продукт!/Great Product!
    Я уже больше года пользуюсь продукцией THE ORDINARY и в целом очень довольна результатами. "buffet" зарекомендовал себя чудесно. Я живу в горах и довольно часто испытываю сухость кожи. Но этот продукт решил проблему полностью. Использую его вечером перед сном. Рекомендую всем подругам! I have been using The Ordinary products for more than a year and I'm generally very pleased with the results. The "buffet" has proven itself wonderfully. I live in the mountains and quite often experience dry skin, but this product solved the problem completely. I use it in the evening before going to bed. I recommend it to all my friends!
    Wow this has changed my dry skin forever!
    Finally, I found a serum that does what I need! Hydrates my skin and leave it soft I have been suffering from dry skin for many years and this product has changed my life. SO happy, so much at so little price.
    Nice serum
    Great serum, I use it every day.
    Amazing value
    Been using a plethora of The Ordinary products. Buffet is one of my favourites. Improvements in my fine lines and wrinkles for sure.
    skvělý produkt, mám již druhé balení a doporučuji ***** Great product, I have already bought a backup. I would recommend.
    I have been using this for about two months. The difference in my skin is visible to others now. I was recently asked where I worked and I am 74 years old and obviously I'm retired. Two other people wouldn't believe me when I told them my age. I always use sunscreen, an anti-oxidant, "Buffet" and moisturiser. At night I use cold pressed rosehip oil by The Ordinary.
    Excellent product
    Male in fifties with combination skin. I use this product each morning before moisturiser. Skin is noticeably softer and hydrated. Also at a very good price.
    Love it!
    I’ve been using this serum for about two weeks and I love how hydrating it is. It hasn’t broken me out and my hyperpigmentation looks like it’s fading because my skin is hydrated so it’s healing itself.
    Affordable and high quality. Happy about this product.
    love this!
    My friend recommended this brand and I now have quite a few of their lotions and potions. Buffet is a great all rounder. Skin feels hydrated and tighter after a months use. Would really recommend.
    Still waiting!
    No change to my skin yet! Lovely to use though.
    Fab product
    I’ve been using Buffet morning and night for a month and can already see an improvement in my forehead and between-brow lines. It goes on and sinks in really well and a little goes a long way. I’m halfway through the bottle after a month but at first I was dispensing too much at a time... It could probably last longer. I’ll definitely be ordering again!
    Excellent product, will buy in the future also, Thanks Cult beauty.
    Great product!
    Love it!
    The Ordinary Buffet
    Not sure what it’s supposed to do, except feed your skin, but my skin looks more vibrant and bright. Tried this because I already use and love a lot of products from this brand. I’ll be buying the Buffet again. I’m not good at reading instructions and things lol but I love this product. Certainly does something.
    The Ordinary
    Doesn't really do anything special for my mature, dry skin. Difficult to work with. Sticky.
    Absolutely love this!
    So Sticky!
    Seeing all the reviews here I bought this and when I applied it just 3 pea sized drops. Boom! it felt like I applied glue to my face. It was so sticky my fingers were getting stuck to my face. Horrible. It felt like I had a mask applied. After washing off, my face was so oily, never getting this again.
    Great product
    I use this both morning and eve. It’s a lovely serum, easily absorbed and feels fab on the skin. I have a dry complexion if that helps anyone who may be considering purchasing. Definitely recommend.
    Perfection in a bottle
    After 3 weeks of application, my skin’s texture has dramatically improved. The fine lines around my forehead and eyes are fading away. I have a dry/combination skin type and most of the expensive serums I bought in the past would either dry out my skin or make it very oily and sticky. So I would end up buying two serums; one to curb dryness around my forehead and my cheeks and the other to help with pores around my nose area. It was indeed a challenge finding skin care products with the right balance. But with the ‘Buffet’ I finally found a serum which caters to my demanding skin type. It’s beyond perfect.
    Everything and more... love the moisturising effect.
    It’s Official: I’m in Love
    After 3 months of wearing Dr Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Serum and having phenomenal skin, I was at a loss of finding a cheaper serum that could do the same thing. Buffet is as close as I will get and much, much cheaper. This is honestly the second serum ever to really “wow” me and I love it. And at that price tag - how can you not justify trying it?
    Pleasantly surprised
    I have very temperamental skin - dehydrated yet can get blocked pores - this has literally changed my skin for the better. It has completely balanced my skin out and diminished my pores, it’s fantastic (I’m in my 40’s)! After trying every high-end serum to sort my skin this has actually worked!! 10/10.
    Skin plumper
    Like how it wakes up my skin quickly.
    Good product, I recommend! I will order more.
    Good serum but a little greasy. Other products seem to lay on top and not absorb in fully, but still a good serum to put on and go to bed. A little goes a long way.
    The Ordinary
    Really good product.
    Tacky if you use too much
    A little goes a long way. Beautiful skin texture. Will definitely be ordering again.
    The best Ordinary product!!!
    Two weeks of usage and my skin is visibly more smooth, even and plump. Love it <3
    Buffet 5*****
    Amazing product!
    Itchy and dry patches
    Firstly I want to say I do have sensitive combination skin - so this was always going to be a coin flip. Sadly, I almost noticed right away that my skin started to feel itchy and after a day with it on, I had dry patches on my face. I gave it another day but with only a moisturiser and sunscreen on (at night without the sunscreen) and it's the obvious culprit. I'm gutted as there are so many good reviews - alas my skin is having none of it.
    Love it
    Male in mid-forties with combination skin. Use this each morning before moisturiser. Skin is noticeably softer and hydrated.
    I am very happy with this fantastic serum. I can see a difference in my overall look. Highly recommend as part of a proper skin care routine for any age.
    Great results for a good price.
    I like this serum as it goes on smoothly and has a good number of benefits. I use it morning and night before any other serum or cream.
    I am using this product for a year and I love it. I am 59 and have dry skin.
    Did nothing for me
    I went through 2 bottles of this and did not notice any change in my oily skin. I am in mid 30's. Lines are where they were at the beginning, depth did not change, neither did the skin texture.
    Have used more expensive serums and this is just as good. Great product. Highly recommend.
    I've been using this for just over a week now and my skin has been breaking out so badly and even peeling in patches. I've used other Ordinary products before and not had any issues. I don't know if I should keep using it and see if my skin improves.
    Too bad for my skin...
    I bought this product 2 months ago. When I started to use it, I saw that gradually acne appeared on my face which kept getting worse. When I stopped using it, the pimples started to fade. When I started to use it again because I wasn’t sure that this product is the reason for my acne, I had the same unpleasantness. Definitely not for me...
    Very happy with my purchase. I do recommend it.
    One true love!
    I love love love it. Made my skin so smooth and gleaming! One star less because I can't use it under makeup - so I only use it before going to bed. Will definitely buy again!
    Love this
    This serum is perfect. Its lightweight yet so hydrating and really nourishes the skin. Makes such a difference when using under my night cream. I wake up with beautiful skin!
    Good stuff!
    I don't usually spend much on beauty products but age is catching up with me at 52 so I thought I'd try to sort the wrinkles out before they really set in! This is a good price and is lovely to use. I can't honestly say my wrinkles have disappeared but my skin does feel soft and kind of plumped out. I am nearly out of my 1st bottle and plan to re-order.
    As good as a buffet can get
    As the name suggests, this product is a buffet. Many benefits and truly works.
    The Buffet
    Lovely feel; not oily or sticky at all. Dries in quickly too. Has definitely reduced fine lines and plumped my skin up and only after 2.5 weeks use. I've had a few spot breakouts since starting it, but that has subsided.
    Nice serum
    Feels nice on skin and sinks in well. I haven't noticed any improvement in my skin yet but I will stick with it and hopefully it will work soon. I'm feeling positive about it though
    Love IT
    Worked within 1 month.. just love it
    Good but not great
    I had a lot of hopes for this product but it hasn’t really worked for me. Obviously, everyone has different skin types and different things work for different people. I have very dry and spot prone skin but the wrong product makes me oily as a chip pan. This one didn’t do that but didn’t seem to do much at all to be honest.
    Not as expected, after all those dithyrambic reviews!I found Hyaluronic Acid 2%-B5 better.
    A cult favourite
    This never fails me. Have bought this numerous times and WILL continue to stock up for hubby and myself!
    True to its name
    Have been using this product since last month and I've seen great results! I'll surely buy another bottle again!!!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I am 100% sure it is improving my turkey neck; so the skin on my face must be improving.
    Works well
    Love this serum, my skin feels plumper and more nourished, not really seen a difference with fine lines but it’s early days.
    I can't tell if its only the Buffet or a mix of benefits of various of <<the ordinary>> products. My skin is better, improved in texture, moisture, glow, summers' sun flakes, not more tight though...don't know about that....
    Super, I will buy it again.
    Fab serum
    A great serum but you have to leave a good ten mins or so before you apply any other serums or creams on top or it can ball up on the face leaving a bit of a mess. Now I know how to work with it, it’s great! Have definitely noticed a difference in my skin.
    The Ordinary -Buffet
    I have been using this marvelous product for some time and my skin looks and feels fantastic, It is truly a marvel.
    Excellent product that nourishes, moisturizes, soothes. The "Buffet" can replace several products, which saves the money, time and space on the shelf for other products.
    I have been using this serum for a few weeks now AM and PM, started to use it as part of my skincare routine and honestly it does what it says. My skin feel smooth and plumped each time and have noticed reduction of pores. Really good product and loving the price- definitely won’t be breaking the bank balance so highly recommend.
    Effective addition to an Ordinary regime
    Started adding this serum to my skincare routine a year ago. Noticeable results after a month, and worth trying.
    Love this!!!
    The best product your skin can get!
    Worth the hype!
    This is such a great product! It’s just seeps straight into the skin and gives me such an even, glowing, youthful complexion. I have sensitive combination skin and it’s teamed with a tinted moisturiser, my skin just feels really hydrated all day. I also use it with the matrixyl + HA (for dehydration lines in my forehead) and together it just works so so well.
    Great searum highly recommend. Skin soft and smooth.
    LOVE it! It helps with my break outs.
    It really brings back that youthful bounce and freshness to the face. I also noticed a slight reduction in wrinkles under my eyes. If I have to mention a con, it's a little sticky on your face and requires you massaging it in a little bit. Honestly, it is totally worth it!
    Pretty sensational
    I have been using this now for 6 month and I love it. My skin looks plump and healthy, very luminous and well hydrated. I use this before I use an oil at night. I am 59 years old.
    Buffet, EUK 134, Vitamin C 30%, AHA 30%, Argireline sol-n 10%, Huile de Marula, Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5
    I love it! Such a wonderful cosmetics is no longer to be found. In a short time, a great result is achieved, disappear "crow's feet", the skin becomes dense, tightened. It's great that the price is affordable. I am very happy, thank you very much!
    Wonderful product
    A very hydrating and nourishing serum. I highly recommend. It made fine lines on my forehead less prominent.
    Love this!!!
    It’s amazing and works wonders on my skin!
    Makes a difference
    I have sensitive skin prone to hormonal acne, and use this after acids in the am, and I don't know what it is, but this quickly made a difference to the texture and glow on my skin. Look forward to trying the vamped version with copper. So it gets the highest score for the effect in relation to price.
    Love, love, love it!
    Very good.
    Believe the hype!
    The Ordinary is amazing, I have been using buffet and hyaluronic acid + b5 in the am and pm for around 6 weeks now. Its incredible! I started using for anti ageing properties but wasn’t expecting to see such amazing results to the general quality of my skin. I have achieved the infamous ‘glow’ - I thought this was something made up by cosmetic companies - turns out its real! Definitely worth a try and so cheap. I have recently added 5% granactive retanoid in squalane alternating with l-ascorbic acid in the pm too - both also lovely to use! I have no problem with pilling or stickiness - just use a few drops and allow to soak in. Think I’ve found a skin care brand for life. Thank you deciem!
    Great product! Love it!
    I have been using Buffet since July - I'm using my third bottle now and could notice obvious improvement on my skin. Great product. Will keep using it.
    The Ordinary Buffet serum.
    Lovely serum. I use it before my moisturiser. It sinks in instantly, feels sticky but only briefly. My skin looks nourished and feels great. Will definitely purchase again.
    Love love love
    Amazing product!
    Good for skin
    All in all
    I love it. One serum which takes care of dryness, dullness etc. I don't have wrinkles so I can't comment on that. I feel I am using a 100% good quality product on my face. I want to try buffet with copper peptides next.
    Love it!
    Use this every day and absolutely love it.
    Oh no!
    Totally overrated. This product does the worst thing a serum could ever do - it pills! I apply it before using my face oil at night and I end up with tons of little chunks of product coming off my skin when massaging the oil in. Awful in this respect. It is mildly hydrating but not in a way where you would notice any long-lasting result. Only giving it two stars instead of one because of the cheap price point compared to other equally bad serums that cost a lot more. Avoid!
    Noticeable results immediately, great price
    As soon as I started using this I noticed results. My skin is smoother, brighter and fresher looking. It's such a great price that I don't feel guilty buying it, using it regularly and buying it again!
    The ordinary buffet
    Been using and buying this product from cult beauty for some time now...the buffet has been excellent for my skin; the difference is really noticeable not just by me but others...will continue to repurchase especially from cult beauty great company
    The best of quality
    Best night syrum
    I use this every single night and wouldn’t be caught dead without it. I wake up with my skin feeling so soft and smooth and using this and a combination of other ordinary products I have noticed I get virtually no creases in my makeup anymore. When I first started using it I will say that I had to ease into it as I sometimes experienced a mild stinging however I was never able to pin point that to this exact serum
    Very good, definitely will repurchase it. In fact I already have…
    Worth the hype
    This serum made my skin firmer in 1 week. I’m using it am and pm. Obsessed
    Excellent Serum
    A week after using I noticed my skin is fuller, smooth and supple. Never mind that it's sticky, rub into hands press into cheeks, chin and forehead and stroke it up your neck. Before you know it, it's dried and you can follow with moisturiser which goes on better. Love this stuff which comes from my hometown and the price is so right. I hate throwing money out on products that don't work.
    Dried my skin out
    I really wanted to love this product, as I've seen so many rave reviews. Unfortunately it dried my skin out so badly that I had dry patches all over my cheeks. This is the only product I introduced into my routine
    Good shopping experience
    It is a very good product for my skin. After using it for 1 month, I can feel and see my neck becoming more smooth.
    Absolutely loved this product!
    It made a significant difference in my skin.
    Good quality for a very reasonable price. I would like to recommend it as a gift because it is very unlikely to irritate even the most sensitive skin!
    It’s a great anti aging serum! Absorbs very quick, makes my skin hydrated and healthy glow. The price quite reasonable. Cant live without it!
    Ordinary Buffet
    Love Love Love! My skin feels and looks amazing with this gem of a product. Definitely recommend it
    I just using this product 2 weeks ago. So far it's fading some age spots on my skin. I still continue to use this product.
    Anything but Ordinary
    Great product and amazing price for the quality. Would recommend.
    Skin feels brighter and tighter but supple at the same time! Use it with my day & night moisturiser - although once or twice a week just on its own, Would definitely recommend.
    Love it
    I could say it's one of the best serums I've ever had!
    Wonderful product
    Used The Buffet for 3 weeks. My skin is moist and soft and I can feel the difference. Thank you!
    "Favoloso" is an Italian word like" Amazing" in English, The buffet is an awesome product. I am 52 and I have been using buffet for 1 year as a primer and my skin says "thanks" every morning. Buffet forever!
    Just started using the Ordinary products a couple of weeks back. I'm not sure if i'm being biased about seeing results but my skin feels and (in my opinion) looks better! The buffet is an affordable and easy to use moisturiser. It gets absorbed by my skin so quickly, it's incredible. I'm definitely sticking to this brand.
    Very Good Amazing Even
    I don’t know about others, but for my skin, it's working perfect!
    Love This
    I use this on top of the Salicylic acid 2%, it’s not too heavy and once soaked into the skin doesn’t leave a sticky residue. My skin becomes clear and make up applies easy! I also add a bit of collagen gel on top of this once it’s dried into my skin! I’ll be purchasing again!
    The Ordinary
    Absolutely perfect. I love The Ordinary products because not only do they give the best results. Tthey have no animal ingredients and are cruelty free which is the most important thing for me.
    Super serum!!
    A light weight, non-greasy serum that can be used day and night under your usual creams. Makes skin soft and smooth. Not sure if it’s working on my wrinkles yet though.
    Love It
    So good! I'm using for a month now, and actually after few days of using, my pores just disappeared! Wow! My skin is so much smoother, skin tone even, and healthier.
    Glowing skin
    I have just added this to my Ordinary regime together with their natural moisturising factors and after a week my skin is glowing for the first time in ages. I'm 54 and also using vitamin c powder and niacinamide. I have sensitive skin prone to breakouts but haven't had any problems at all so far. Very happy!
    My Favourite
    It's just perfect, I use it am and pm and it’s super hydrating, the first thing that keeps my super dry skin moisturised! And the consistency is nice, Great product!
    Far from Ordinary
    Out of the ordinary products for out of the ordinary people supplied promptly and beautifully wrapped. I’m fast becoming a fan of this ‘cult’ure club!
    Overall win
    I suffer from flaky cheeks and a very oily t-zone! This "Buffet" seems to strike the perfect balance, as it leaves my cheeks moisturised and my t-zone matte. I am IN LOVE. It takes a while to sink into the skin, but my skin is bouncy and happier than it has been in a long, long time. Haven't seen any improvement on my fine lines, hence the 4 stars.
    It may be good but I just can't get past how sticky it is. I love the brand but won't be ordering this again.
    Friends recommended to use this and they said it’ll take a while to see results. But I noticed results after a week! This stuff is INCREDIBLE. I used to purchase expensive moisturisers and skin products and some worked, but it took a while to see results, I ended up switching products all the time, but the ordinary outdid every expensive product I used, hands down.
    I love Buffet! I use before my more targeted serums or acids, usually in the morning but sometimes twice a day. My skin feels lovely after using this, and it's a nice base for some of the stronger tingly acids. I'm racing through this and I'll absolutely buy another!
    Not ordinary by any means
    This has now become an essential in my everyday routine perfect for no makeup days and a subtle primer for when makeup is needed.
    Excellent serum
    An amazing product that has altered the appearance of my skin reducing blemishes, seems to make spots heal quicker and has reduced the fine lines starting to appear on my face! I absolutely love it followed by The Ordinary moisturiser.
    Irritated my skin
    To be fair, I've heard great things about this product and was really excited to try it out. At first, I thought it was good - it's tacky but after ten or fifteen minutes your skin is ready for your oil (if you use one). However, after about a week I noticed I've been getting irritated skin during my PM routine, and unfortunately (or fortunately, cos at least it was one of the cheapest items I bought), after cutting out a different product one by one then reintroducing them, it turns out it's Buffet that my skin doesn't like. Bummer. But everyone's skin is different.
    I am 45 and use this as a part of my newly adopted The Ordinary skin care routine and my skin hasn't looked this good in YEARS. After just a couple of months, my skin actually looks better WITHOUT makeup. This is smooth and silky and makes my skin look moisturized, feel soft, and plumps up my wrinkles. LOVE IT.
    Great for aging skin
    So I see the comments like Buffet doesn't do much. Well for me it really didn't do that much. But keep in mind I'm not even in my thirties yet. But I saw real difference Buffet did in my mom's appearance. Her face looks much much better on so many levels.
    Do not expect overnight results
    One of those products that takes time to work its magic (science) much like retinoids. I have gone through a fourth bottle and this has made my skin incredibly plump and delightfully supple. For reference, I'm in my mid-20s and I imagine this will help me keep lines at bay. Another welcomed difference is that my lower lashes have grown wispy and longer...definitely would keep repurchasing this!
    I found this literally did nothing for my skin, the science doesn't back it up and the only thing it helped was my lips (too pricey just for that). Even though it's cheap it lasts half the time a normal serum would last and it pilled up on my face.
    Not as good as I’d hoped
    I’m a bit of a fan of The Ordinary product line. However, I was very disappointed with this serum. It pilled on my skin regardless of under moisturiser or foundation - mineral or liquid made no difference. I have to be honest and say I much prefer their Matrixyl 10% + HA. That firms and holds moisture into my skin without pilling. It seems to plump up any lines and makes them less visible. It does have a slightly tacky feeling but does not pill like this product does. I’m mid-forties just for reference.
    Fantastic serum for a funny price
    My first product from The Ordinary was this serum. I have acne prone combination skin and if I use any hydrating products on pm, my skin would be dry or super oily by morning. But this amazing serum helps keep my skin balanced, hydrated and soft.
    Excellent. This is my second purchase of this and I shall continue using it every morning after cleansing and under more general moisturising and make-up.
    Is sticky in?
    I’m not sure if this is just not my cup of tea or didn’t give it long enough. It says use pm and is but it leaves my skin sticky which is unpleasant so I only apply it before I go to bed, is it having a sticky face a new beauty standard perhaps? Anyway, the smell is also a bit weird. It moisturizes well (just like any other moisturizing products) but nothing outstanding. Not a waste of money but also not as miraculous as I expected based on all the other reviews.
    Making a difference
    I really like this product and love the price. I use it every morning before my moisturiser and eye cream and in the PM around my eyes. I use different Ordinary products on my face PM. I have used this now for 3-4 weeks and can see a noticeable difference in my skin and the fine wrinkles. Will buy again.
    Glad I bought two
    I took a leap of faith and bought two of these even though I never tried it before, I heard fantastic things about it. It's not life changing, but it's just as good as other serums I enjoy using, and costs half the price. My one issue with it is that it does not perform well under makeup for me. No matter how I apply it and how long I give it to absorb before putting makeup on, by midday my foundation looks like a mess. But in fairness to Buffet, that happens with other serums I've tried too across the price spectrum. So this is only an overnight serum, so what- I still think it's great and will probably use this up and come back for more.
    This product speaks for itself. I use this day & night, I can’t begin to tell you how much life this has given my skin. I’m in my 60’s & I’m so addicted to it.
    Worth to try!
    Fantastic product
    I have been using Buffet for about 2 months and nearly finished my first bottle. It is an amazing product at a really good price point - my clean has cleared up, looks more glowy than before and the texture I had left over from some spots has significantly reduced. Would definitely recommend the product and have already purchased my second bottle!
    My skin is in love with this. It's light and makes my skin almost instantly plump.
    No really, this is AMAZING
    I have incredibly problematic skin, I suffer from psoriasis, dry skin, and acne. Most products that are designed to help with spots are too drying and make things worse for me, and many of the products designed for combination skin or specifically for hydration give me an allergic reaction or are too oily or are not hydrating enough. I read a review of this product line with instructions on which combinations of serums to use for different skin types - and within a week - I am totally serious - within a week - my skin looks astonishing. I combine Buffet with two different Ordinary products, with the Hydraulic Acid +B5 in the morning and wi the Niacinimide+Zinc in the evening. Hugely recommended.
    Good Serum
    I didn’t think much of this when I first started exploring skin care as there were not many noticeable differences. I stopped using it for a while & however have more recently incorporated it back into my skincare routine now I have settled on a consistent group of products. Having used this group with and without the Buffet I have definitly noticed my skin feeling more springy and plump since I have re-introduced it. It’s a great price and I love to know I am incorporating another anti-ageing product alongside retinol for a low price.
    Enjoyable Product
    I've actually really liked using this serum. It is a game changer in that it has all the right ingredients at such a low price however the results have not been that dramatic for me thus far. Having said that I have used serums that are 7-8x the price of this and seen absolutely no results whatsoever so would definitely continue to recommend this to others and repurchase again.
    I use day and night and I'm loving the results.
