I had high hopes for ‘The Buffet’ serum as its a is a highly concentrated peptide formula with 11 skin friendly ingredients including amino acids, probiotics and Hyaluronic Acid to combat and target multiple signs of ageing. The Peptides help plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and also firm the skin. All mixed well together to treat and slow down multiple signs of age-ing, renew skin cells, hydrate, plum up and firm the skin.
Four months in and I’m not 100% sure if this is working for me as I haven’t seen any visible changes or perhaps I don’t have enough wrinkles to show results. I have resorted to using this as my night time serum, shuffling between this, the lactic acid and the advanced retinoid 2% serum but use the buffet more frequently than the others. It does absorb quickly into the skin especially after a deep cleanse, exfoliation, detoxing or masking. I’m not ready to shut the lid on it forever and call it quits yet as its costs me £13 after all, the most expensive item in The Ordinary’s range and have just used half of the its content so I still have a bit to go.
The lack of visible results doesn’t mean its all bad. I’ll continue to use this for every other night as it serves as a great humectant serum. Who knows, it might be doing me some good after all. I just don’t see it. Would I buy again? Possibly not.
