Shop Antioxidant and Brightening Serums

One of the most common skin care complaints is pigmentation, especially for mature and aging skin. Pigmentation can appear in many forms from brown, age spots to redness and sallow skin. One of the best ways to tackle pigmentation is to use targeted treatments with high concentrations of active ingredients. While your daily moisturiser and cleanser can help to slowly fade pigmentation and retain hydration, using high potency serums are the best ways to deliver fast and dramatic results to your complexion.


Brightening serums will help to minimise the appearance of pigmentation and balance your skin tone for a more even colouring. Brightening serums are also often packed full of antioxidants. This is because pigmentation is mainly caused by external aggressors such as free radical and sun damage so the best way to prevent pigmentation from forming in the first place is to protect your skin with antioxidants.


The Ordinary have a large selection of high-performance serums which can be used to protect skin against free radicals and brighten the complexion. The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% is one of the most effective for tackling pigmentation. Vitamin C itself is not only a highly effective antioxidant to protect the skin from damage but is a natural skin brightener. The water-free, silicone-free stable formula is boosted with spheres of hyaluronic acid which ensure that skin isn’t left feeling dehydrated after application.


Another popular vitamin C product is the Skinstitut Vitamin C 100%. This pure form L-Ascorbic Acid is a lightweight powder which should be blended into other Skinstitut treatment products to enhance their results and brighten the skin. The Ordinary also offer their 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder which works in the same way.

Definitely a no brainer

Loved everything in this little package and such a great introduction to learning about anti-ageing products. I have already re-ordered the buffet on its own, and have found the retinol really useful. It's gentle but effective. The moisturiser is perfect for all day use. I have dry/combo skin and this both hydrates and doesn't get oily across the day. Highly recommend!

Still waiting on noticeable results

I have added this into my routine for night time, I have not noticed any major difference over the last few weeks but will keep it up and see how I go. It goes on nicely and absorbs quickly which is good.

Perfect product @ this price point

Buffet is a perfect, affordable all-rounder serum. Since I started using it a few months ago I have noticed my fine lines are reduced (particularly on my forehead) and my skin definitely looks more youthful and glowy.
