Definitely helps healing of wounds - 17-01-2019 by

I apply this in the AM once every 2 days. I’m alternating between this and salicylic acid otherwise I would use it every day. Being 25 I wasn’t looking for an anti-aging product, but more so a preventative method. As I started using multiple products in the ordinary range at the same time I can’t say if it helped with fine lines, but when I put it on over an acne spot it definitely seems to clear it up faster.

Great Product - 29-12-2018 by

I use this daily in the morning after cleansing before other hydration serums. It's fantastic. My skin seems clearer and brighter.

New for me but I love - 19-12-2018 by

I only recently added this peptide serum to my skincare routine after my clinician suggested I do. I love the formulation of this - it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a nasty smell. I wait 30 seconds before applying further serums as per The Ordinary’s recommendation. So far a great addition to my routine!

Skin has never looked so good! - 10-12-2018 by

Would definitely recommend this product! My skin has improve dramatical since starting to use this product skin tone and wrinkles all improving. Has made me more confident to spend my day makeup less.

Love the quality. - 22-11-2018 by

The Ordinary “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 1% absorbs beautifully into my skin, I have only been using it for a week but I can already see the benefits.

Pricey - 12-11-2018 by

What I love about the ordinary is the simple, effective and inexpensive products. I feel like this one is overpriced and the extra ingredient isn’t worth paying so much more than the original buffet.

Great serum - 29-10-2018 by

I prefer this more than the original buffet. It’s a great serum and layers really well under my make up.
It is a bit tacky and sticky going on and smells quite funky but overall a really good product.

Give it some time - 29-10-2018 by

I purchased this product because my skin was more dehydrated than usual and none of my usual products were working. At first this serum seemed to be working too well, making my face feel oily and clogged. But after about 1 week of applying it morning and night, my skin adjusted and now it is more balanced than its ever been! It feels soft and supple, make up looks dewy and fresh, and I've been getting compliments on my "glowy" complexion! I'm glad I stuck at it through that first week - a small price to pay for the great benefits I'm now enjoying!

Nice all-in-one serum - 23-10-2018 by

I use a few of The Ordinary's serums, always pleased with the results. After a month or more of using this product I think the cost is quite high compared to others in this brand... Which isn't a bad thing, but while its anti-aging effects and the restorative copper peptides are very effective, I can achieve similar results by using a combination of other serums from this range (which even with 2-3 different bottles are still a cheaper option)

If I had to pick a single, go-to serum it would be this one. Useful if you want to have a simple beauty routine. But I can just as easily use a combination of Niacinamide and Hyaluronic acid at night, and vitamin c during the day (plus intermittent retinol) to get almost the same benefits

In order to really test this product I put aside my normal skin care regimen for a week and just used this Copper Peptide Buffet. It's not too tacky and so long as its used sparingly it layers well. But it may not be necessary if you already have a skin routine with a few complimentary serums

Certainly a nice product though

love it! - 22-10-2018 by

Though a bit tacky it is a great value and has a lovely effect on the skin it seems to blend well with other ha serum new to use but shall keep using as it is really giving a nice plumpness and even texture to my skin

UPDATE: Bad reaction - 22-10-2018 by

An update on my previous review. I suffer from small amounts of contact dermatitis on my ring fingers, but nothing elsewhere. Recently I’d developed three patches of it on my face for the first time, either side of my nose and my forehead. I cut out all my skincare and started adding things back one by one - guess what brought it back immediately? This stuff. Use with caution if you suffer from even the mildest dermatitis or eczema.

Like - 18-10-2018 by

I prefer this to the original Buffet. The texture is more liquid but not too runny at all.
The previous reviewer stated the smell of vinegar. I have not found this. But I have noticed that a lot of the ordinary serums seem to change from one bottle to another.
It does sting but goes away quickly. It goes well under moisturiser and does not pill.
I like using it,have not seen any results yet but I have only been using it for a couple of weeks.

Incredible value - 18-10-2018 by

It's the original Buffet and NIOD CAIS (copper peptides) put together! It saves me a bottle to have it in one - a fantastic combination at a phenomenal price.

I've now been using copper peptides for nearly two years - it's a staple in my regimen. I noticed a refinement in texture within the first few weeks, my pores look smaller, my skin is more even and smooth. I definitely notice that my hyper-pigmentation is less obvious too. I did go up to the higher percentage new version of NIOD CAIS but really didn't notice any improvement so dropped back to this 1% solution; it's more affordable and I think, after long-term use, I'm probably maintaining at this point.

The Buffet part I've been using since it first came out. It's a fantastic product - an array of anti-ageing ingredients all in one affordable serum. I don't really have too many noticeable signs of ageing yet (phew!) so I use this as a preventative measure. That said, I have found that the serum has plumped my skin and, of course, the HA is hydrating.

I use an array of products from The Ordinary and my skin has never been better. This serum is one I use twice a day and, along with retinol, I think it would benefit most skin types. It's definitely one to consider

Plump and hydrates my skin - 17-10-2018 by

I decided to give this product a go because the rest of my skin regime is targeted at my acne and I figured I should add something for anti-ageing. I definitely think my fine lines and wrinkles are less obvious and I look more hydrated... What I am unsure about is if it is worth double the price of the original buffet? having not tried the original I do wonder if the copper peptides make it worth the jump in price. I may try the original version next time to test this out.

Not sure - 11-10-2018 by

I bought it as upgrade from the original Buffet. I used it for a month now. I find it smells like a vinegar. It stings first a little bit when I apply it to my face, but quickly disappears. The texture is sticky. So far I'm not sure if it does more to my skin than the original Buffet. I'll finish the bottle, but probably won't repurchase it.

good one ! - 10-10-2018 by

My mother's Buffet white bottle has ran out so I want to buy another bottle for her. This time I searched for The Ordinary Buffet and this bottle popped up, and I wanted to try it out as it has peptide in it. My mother seems to like it, and it works, so we are going to stick with this bottle from now on.

Good - 10-10-2018 by

The color is the same as the niod, is a blue serum, a bit less watery than the niod one but I think is very similar and cheaper. For me is a dupe and both brands belong to the same company.

Leaves little black balls of dead skin on face. - 28-09-2018 by

I love The Ordinary. My entire routine is uses their products. So when this beefed up take on Buffet caught my eye I bought it immediately. Unfortunately I’ll be going back to the original once I’m done with this bottle. Results seem the same, no major differences thanks to the addition of the copper peptides. But it’s the balls of dead skin that it exfoliates then sticks to my face I can’t handle. I wash, exfoliate, even dermaplane my skin and every time I use this it gathers up any tiny residual gunk and then as the serum dries, it becomes very hard to remove. I have to scrub my skin with a dry towel or use my nail to scrape it off. Usually balls up along my jaw line and cheeks. Use with caution!

My skin has improved after only one week - 26-09-2018 by

I use this in combination with lactic acid serum. Skin looks more hydrated and might be a coincidence but it is gently drawing out impurities. Not massive breakout just clearing. I’ve used many brands and this one is a standout. Some products feel as though they sit on top of skin whereas this is absorbed and improves texture.

Best purchase ever - 24-09-2018 by

It’s best skin care serum!! Will keep continue to use.

Great serum - 20-09-2018 by

I have acne prone skin and this serum moisturises and plumps my skin without aggravating my acne or breaking me out. I am in love! I mix a few drops of this with one drop of the ordinary's niacinamide serum at night :) I do not use this in the morning as I use a vitamin C serum before sun exposure and The ordinary has advised against mixing L-ascorbic acid with this product.

Amazing!!! - 12-09-2018 by

This serum is really beautiful. From the gorgeous blue colour to the amazing ingredients. Have only been using it a week and have only just begun to notice a difference in my skin. I really can't wait to see the results with continued use. I find that it absorbs really well too but sometimes there can be a little stickiness after it dries but not much.

The BEST All Round Serum - 12-09-2018 by

This is without a doubt the very best serum to use prior to makeup application for skin smoothness and long term skin health.
My skin is smoother and I swear wrinkles are decreased. I look younger now than 10 years ago and this is a result of using The Ordinary range.
I use a combination of different products from The Ordinary in the mornings and evenings. I apply 'Buffet + Copper Peptides 1%' in the morning after 'Matrixyl 10%' and 'Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5'.
I have adjusted the amount I use and I am finding I need less than when I started. I put this down to healthier skin that is now absorbing the products better.

Love it - 06-09-2018 by

I have used this for two weeks now with no adverse effects.
It is on the sticky side in my opinion. Not at all oily though. I have acne prone/oily skin. Too soon to see results, but I like it. :)

Feels good, yet to see dramatic results - 21-08-2018 by

Using in conjunction with Hylamide Sensitive serum to better Rosacea prone skin. Feels better than the original Buffet serum and having less flair ups but am unsure if its the Hylamide or this serum. Will continue to use to help build skin strength up.

will use with my derma roller~ - 17-08-2018 by

Been trying to find a affordable copper serum for a while to use with my derma roller! this will be interesting!

Rave - 14-08-2018 by

So much rave behind this so I just had to try this. I've tried this a little bit that's already made a difference. My skin actually feels and even looks smoother and softer. So happy with this.

Awesome - 13-08-2018 by

I bought this the minute it was released by The Ordinary! I have been using NIOD's copper peptide serum for a while and became hooked, and would follow it up with The Ordinary's Buffet. So needless to say, having CP in the Buffet serum itself sounded too good to be true! I really love this serum, but I'm not 100% sure if it is as effective as applying NIOD's CAIS first, followed by Buffet. I could be imagining this, but “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 1% doesn't seem to have the same results, or it could just be that my skin has adapted to copper peptides by this point and I'm not noticing such a difference? Who knows? It's still a great product!

Amazing - 13-08-2018 by

I haven't tried the original version of the Buffet, but I was intrigued to try this one with the Copper. It is ah-mazing! From the first use, my skin looked so fresh and felt super smooth. I thought I was imagining things, but I can't wait to put this on morning and night because it makes my skin look and feel so nice. Definitely recommend this one!

'Buffet' goes 'a la carte' - 30-07-2018 by

I have been waiting for this new addition since its release and was so happy when I discovered AdoreBeauty had it in stock. Immediately it's Copper' blue makes a good impression and I feel it has a better absorption and firming affect than its former self. I will admit I am more 'precious' now with how much I use- strictly 3/4 drops for my face, neck and decolletage. I have tried alot of The Ordinary products which I love however I could eliminate a couple easily with this in the mix, now. Overall I think Buffet + Copper Peptides 1% helps my 50+ skin feel healthier, more resilient and tighter (even my pores!!)
According to Deciems web page Buffet with the added Copper Peptides among other benefits "supports a wide range of skin health functions like maintaining normal immune function, collagen synthesis, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses" Definitely worth the extra $, I will buy again - love it!
