The Ordinary “Buffet” contains a wide variety of ingredients which all work together to help target visible signs of ageing, rather than focusing on just one key ingredient. This multi-technology peptide serum targets multiple signs of ageing and our experience with the is that the multiple Peptide complexes work in-line with the Amino Acids to help calm and regulate skin tone, whilst hydrating and nourishing skin deep beneath the epidermis.

20 reviews for The Ordinary Buffet – 30ml

  1. Babs

    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.

    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.

  3. Tash

    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.

  4. Melon Baby

    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.

  5. Emily

    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.

  6. Amazing

    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!

  7. Yumi

    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!

  8. G

    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.

    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!

  10. Gr

    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 %

  11. Sophie

    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.

  12. Dalina

    Lovely product! After a few months of using the results have been really super

  13. Nults

    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.

  14. Em

    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!

  15. LJ

    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!

  16. Jen

    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!

  17. gardener

    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.

  18. Jenna

    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!

  19. Gsmomma

    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.

  20. Joseph

    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 ❤️
