    The Ordinary "Buffet" Reviews

    Amazing
    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 =)
    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!
    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.
    Dissapointed
    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.
    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.
    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.
    Buffet
    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.
    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.
    Amazing!
    Worth to try!
    Buffet
    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.
    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.
    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.
    Amazing!
    My skin is in love with this. It's light and makes my skin almost instantly plump.
    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!
    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.
    Perfect
    I use day and night and I'm loving the results.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    Yeees!
    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!
    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
    Amazing
    My skim loves this. I have quite sensitive skin and no issues just really fresh results.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    Neutrality
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
