The colour is so nice. It's a refreshing, light texture absorbs easily. It's working well for my skin. I've moved on to this brand from Drunk Elephant and I like it better so far.

Most Helpful Criticism

not sure


not sure with this one. didn't notice much, nothing good or bad. Worth a try as I have seen a lot of good reviews and pretty good price point.
  1. Unsure - seems good?


    verified purchaser
    Honestly hard to tell if it's doing much for my skin, but I do enjoy using the product! To be fair, I'm using this as prevention so it doesn't have much to work with in the first place :) Probably would purchase again
  2. Blue serum


    This is the most expensive product from The Ordinary that I have purchased. The serum is a bright blue colour and is light weight so it absorbs into the skin quickly. I have only used this in my night time routine so I cannot say what it's like under makeup. I haven't seen any miracle improvements in my skin, although I do not have many wrinkles to begin with. Overall I like the product.
  3. Love!

  4. Functional serum


    verified purchaser
    This color of serum is really interesting, it's blue. The texture is really nicer that other serum I tries from this brand, which is not too sticky and the ingredient is really good. Hope it's functional.
  5. Bottle of Goodness


    I truly believe this blue-tinted powerhouse serum has helped to soften the fine frown lines I have started to develop in my late 20s. It glides on and absorbs easily, leaving my skin hydrated and notably plumper and firmer with religious use. I now cannot imagine my skin routine being without!
  6. This is a good all round serum


    I have fair combo skin. This was a good serum, although I prefer the other Buffet serum for the price. The consistency and smell were fine for me. It went onto my skin nicely. I would recommend if you have a bit more money to spend. I used after cleansing at night.
  7. not sure


    not sure with this one. didn't notice much, nothing good or bad. Worth a try as I have seen a lot of good reviews and pretty good price point.
  8. it is just ok


    I am not a fan of it. I use it for more than 2 months, but I didn't see any difference on my skin. For this price, compairing the result, I dont recommend it.
  9. All You'll Need

    Soph B

    If you only have time for one serum, this is the one you want! It's hydrating & nourishing, leaving my skin smooth and ready for sunscreen or a night cream in the evening. Great one for travel as it does so much for the skin, you don't need all the other bottles taking up room!
  10. Good but pricey


    verified purchaser
    I mean, it’s all relative with the Ordinary isn’t it, but I didn’t feel that I got any results with this version that I didn’t get with the regular, non copper peptides Buffet. I went through the whole bottle and enjoyed the blue tint but have happily gone back to the regular Buffet
  11. A little power house of goodness.


    I used to use the buffet before but now with added copper peptides I really feel like I am doing something good for my skin. it has a lovely smooth texture leaving my skin really hydrated and bouncy. it is a little more expensive than the plain buffet but I have read a lot of good things about copper peptides and I am certain this is doing good for my skin. I have already repurchased it and will c...

  12. Great


    This has great ingredients and keeps my skin hydrated and plump. Would hopefully see the anti ageing benefits with more time
  13. Holy Grail


    WOW why did it take me so long to try this!? I have been using other products in The Ordinary range but never tried Buffet. I decided to skip the original due to castor oil in the ingredients and go straight for this one with Copper Peptides. It is a bit more expensive than their other products but I think it is totally worth. I have just turned 40 and still get hormonal pimples on my jaw line...

  14. Loving it so far


    Have been using this pretty consistently on my face as well as my poor quality afterbirth stomach skin and things are looking a little more luminous so far, I fin it very hydrating and wake up in the morning with smooth skin instead of a dried prune.
  15. great nightly treatment


    I was amazed when using this product for the first time and seeing its 'blue' colour (from the peptides). This product is great and claims to help with aging, and scar reductions. I use it at night before I go to sleep, and wake up with my skin feeling hydrated and fresh.
    Just a side note - be cautious not to use this in the same routine as glycolic or Salicylic acids
  16. I think I like this stuff


    I have dry, sensitive skin and this product doesn't irritate it or cause any reactions which is already a win in my book. This is one of those products where I don't think you really see results in the short term but I am definitely going to stick with it after reading about the benefits.
  17. Dewy


    I like the way my skin feels after this, it feels hydrated.
  18. Look past the smell!


    After reading the benefits of copper peptides I was excited to use this! I know my future skin will thank me... but it does smell BAD
  19. Plumping and Hydrating


    I tried this serum after hearing about it on the Adore Beauty podcast. I mostly use it in the evening as the last serum in put on as it doesn't layer too well if you put it on first, but I do sometimes use it in the morning under my sunscreen too. I have quite oily skin and I feel this serum is quite hydrating on my skin. I wake up looking fresh and glowy, but not oily. I think I'll need to use it...

  20. Unsure


    This definitely goes on a lot smoother than the original Buffet (smells much more potent) but as for the benefits of the Copper Peptides (particularly on scarring), I think I will need about 6 months of continued use to see. So far, I add 1 or 2 drops of it to Rosehip Oil and apply as my night-time moisturiser. My skin has been quite good lately, but it's hard to tell whether it is because of this...

  21. Is it supposed to smell like vinegar?


    So I'm new to this product and not used to the funky smell, a bit like vinegar. It goes on great; smooth and evenly, though I'm finding it difficult to get past the odour. Not sure if it's supposed to smell this way as I've seen another review say it has no scent? Unfortunately I haven't used it long enough to notice any real benefits, but I'm hoping for the best. These things take time and I tr...

  22. You know it's doing good


    I use this on alternate nights in conjunction with Retinol. It is not the type of serum you buy to see immediate changes, but something that will have long term benefits. Feels lovely on the skin and absorbs nicely.
  23. Great


    This serum has amazing ingredients and peptides. It has been helping my skin barrier
  24. light texture not greasy but invisible improvement


    I use it nearly every night with the serum. It is very light texture and easy to absorb into the skin. It looks like a blue gel liquid, but touching feeling is more like water. I haven't seen any visible improvement of my fine lines after four weeks application.It may need more time to show its effects.
  25. Great serum


    I’m really enjoying using this serum! It’s a good mix of wonderful peptides and will have a longer term effect that I’m excited to see. It is difficult sometimes to layer with more than one other serum and it is a little thick, however I’m always happy to tone down the number of serums I’m using so I can incorporate this one.
  26. Amazing


    This helps my skin look healthy and plump. I love this just like most other ordinary products
  27. Fine lines be gone!


    I bought this product after listening to the podcast featuring the ordinary. Since using this product in the first week I noticed my blemishes healed quicker, 2 weeks in and my skin glowed and after a month I noticed the fine lines on my forehead were less obvious. This is now a staple in my daily routine - recommend to all.
  28. Not Sold


    I really REALLY want to like The Ordinary’s products, I really do. I have purchased a few of their products and where I come unstuck is that they don’t feel......pleasant on my skin. This is how I feel about the Buffet + Copper Peptides. It makes my skin feel clammy, sticky, tingly and unfortunately I don’t see many results.
  29. Very good


    I have used two bottles of this and it is moisturising under my sunscreen. Feels a little tightening too (in a good way). Don't really know if it works wonders because I use alot of products but I like this one and will continue to use it.
  30. Upgrade on the original


    I have used the buffet serum in the past, but this one is incredible. Such a great upgrade!
  31. Nice quality product


    I loved this serum. My skin felt moist every time I put it on my face. Copper peptides also good for long term skin health. It doesn’t have any nasty fragrance. I can’t recommend enough of this product. Only thing I can complain about the product is that it takes little longer to absorbed fully. Overall, it’s a good value of money.
  32. Luscious


    I have been using the Buffet for a while was coming to the end of the bottle thought I would up it to the Buffet with Copper Peptides so glad I did this is beautiful on the skin leaves your skin clear and dewy. I have already purchased my second bottle so I don't run out!
  33. good but not the best


    It's lightweight texture, and hydrates my skin. It has blue color and light smell. After using for a week, I haven't seen any visible effectiveness on my skin.
  34. Feels effective


    It's early days for me and this product but first impressions are strong! It's a beautiful blue colour with a slightly medicinal smell, which I far prefer to a fragranced product. The serum is hydrating and rubs on smooth. I am excited too see what this product does for my skin with long-term use.
  35. Better than Standard Buffet!


    I’ve been using the ordinary products for a year now & just added this to my collection in replacement of the standard Buffet & will never turn back. My skin is already feeling more hydrated, plumper & even toned in just two weeks. Obsessed!!
  36. Great so far

    Emma Loves Skincare

    This is an interesting product which I've been using for a couple of months now. I haven't seen too much of a difference so far so I'll continue to try it a bit longer before making up my mind.
    It is a more expensive product on the Ordinary line, so I'm not sure if it's worth the price point long term. I've had no irritation to this product and I use it after cleansing and before moisturisin...

  37. 100% repeat purchase


    Helps with skin healing and regeneration whilst keeping skin moist. I cannot live without it. I have bought so many bottles I have lost count.
  38. love


    An important factor is the amazing smell, I look so forward to using it everyday! Extremely hydrating, definitely recommend!
  39. Great product


    I’ve been using this for two months and I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in my fine lines! I would recommend this as a staple in anyone’s serum routine, particularly if you’re just starting out and looking for a key product! My only complaint is that it does pill on my skin - but the benefits make it worthwhile!
  40. Loving it!


    I have been using this for a few weeks (maybe a little too early to review) and loving the feel of it! I have combination skin and in my early 30s. I feel it's certainly helping to plump and hydrate my skin. Works well in my night routine ( I cleanse, tone and then apply this followed by niacinamide).
  41. The perfect serum


    I love everything about this serum, i used to like the Ordinary Buffet, but the additional copper takes it to another level. The texture and the magical blue colour of the copper leave my skin soft and hydrated. Wilk definitely repurchase.
  42. Okay


    I’ve used both this and the original buffet - texture on this deosn’t Work well for me, I find it sort of stickyish under makeup and pilling. I am now using niod which is incredible. Worth the extra $.
  43. Best dupe for NIOD CAIS


    If you need a cheaper dupe for CAIS this is so good. Half the price and 3/4 of the effect of CAIS without the pocket pain.
  44. Love it


    This has become a must in my daily beauty process. My skin feels hydrated and makes it a great base for applying my make-up
  45. Great


    This buffet is incredible and I have seen improvements in my fine lines since using this.
  46. Great


    This has helped my fine lines a lot and has helped my complexion in so many ways. Will buy again
  47. Nice product


    Ive been using this product for 4 weeks, morning only. Unsure if it is making that much of a difference as i am also using retinol, but i find with a moisturiser on top it leaves my skin smooth and provides a nice base for make up. Unsure if i wpuld purchase again given the price, but i am keen on trying the cheaper formula of buffet to compare.
  48. The Buffet


    I have used the original Buffet for quite awhile and loved it so I thought I would upgrade and try this version. The verdict is I love it! Within a couple of days I noticed my dehydrated winter skin looks much smoother and more even toned and I’m very impressed and will continue to use this product and will repurchase.
  49. Love it


    I feel like this makes my skin so hydrated and dewy. I'm not completely convinced that it is entirely essential but I do love it. A bit expensive but I do really like it
  50. A must have product!


    I used the original ‘Buffet’ and was unsure whether the price difference for the copper peptides version was worth it. It is! I use it with my dermal roller once a week and it has dramatically improved my results. The next day my skin is plumper and brighter. It absorbs quickly and a little goes a long way so a bottle will last for ages.
  51. Worth a try


    I was looking for a hyaluronic serum and decided to give this a go after reading reviews, as the ordinary was a more affordable product with multiple benefits. I am happy with it so far, my skin is feeling smooth and hydrated and hope it will help with fine lines over time. Serum is blue on colour and a slight metallic scent with the copper, absorbs easily and feels great
  52. Another great product from The Ordinary


    Loving this so far. Using it at opposite times of the day to my The Ordinary Vit C powder, which I mix with the Ferulic/Resveratrol. Definitely feel like my fine lines around my eyes are starting to soften. Not sure if it’s worth the extra dollars for the copper peptides, as I hadn’t used the straight Buffet before. Loving everything from The Ordinary, it really suits my skin...and wallet! :)
  53. Quality Product!


    Loved this product, was using the ordinary buffet but wanted something a little stronger. So glad I purchased this, made my skin hydrated and instantly felt the results, easy to apply and so easy to add into my daily skin routine!
  54. No Frills luxury!


    I swear by this product! I first bought the original buffet sceptical of how much such a cheap product can offer. Two bottles after and my skin looked more fresh , plumped and radiant than never before. Buffet Cooper peptides went a level up, enhancing my skin hydration and even improving my skin tone. The original brand demolished the say ‘what you pay is what you get’ !
  55. Tightens the skin


    I have definitely noticed an improvement in fine lines around the eyes. Has made my skin feel firmer.
  56. Wrinkles be gone


    I thought I’d try this as I really liked the Ordinary Buffet and this one has Copper peptides which really pack a punch on those fine lines/wrinkles. Only a small amount is needed for my whole face and I applying after cleansing and before my moisturiser. I can honestly say I’m left with smooth line free skin which is fantastic considering I’m nearly 50!
  57. Love this


    Oh I love this one! Slightly sticky residue, but my skin feels so soft and firm. Great for under makeup. Doesn't clog my pores
  58. Great product


    I love this product and have just bought my second bottle.
  59. The original is still the best


    After using the regular buffet for about a year, I thought i'd try this. I honestly didn't notice any difference in this from the regular one. Given this is more expensive, I've decided to stick to the regular buffet
  60. All the serums you need in one


    Love this, brightened my skin. Easy to apply, nice texture! Definitely recommend!
  61. Healing my skin after aggressive peel


    I previously had only used buffet, and thought it was ok. After getting a peel which was a little too aggressive for my skin, I was recommended to try a copper peptide. This one was a bit cheaper than the alternate and I thought I would give it a go, though expensive for TO. I have been using it two weeks and my skin is looking really healthy. Sensitive patches really have improved, and now I am w...

  62. Instant hydration


    I purchased this as vitamin C can irritate my skin if I use it too often. This is hydrating but light enough to not cause pesky outbreaks. I find this woks well under my moisturizer and sunscreen. It also pairs well with my retinol serum. Very runny consistency that could easily be mixed with a moisturizer. My skin looks and feels hydrated, I will continue to purchase
  63. “Buffet” + Copper Peptides


    This product works nicely to plump and hydrate. Is lightweight and non greasy. I saw results within the first week of use.
  64. works great


    Great for anti ageing, it seems to have softened out my major fine lines and wrinkles (only just enough to make a difference)
    It does take a while to see any results and I have been using other Ordinary products so its probably a combination of all that gives the results.
  65. Loved


    I purchased this product because i loved the original buffet serum. I loved this product heaps although i find it made my skin feel just as great as the normal buffet. Not scented that much so that was great and would purchase again
  66. The Ordinary “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 1%


    Light weight and the perfect all rounder. The Ordinary are a stand out product for me, I don't think they make a product I do not like and most of them I love, because they work.
  67. Good for skin


    I definitely prefer this buffet over the other ordinary buffet. This leaves my face looking smoother, plumper and it has helped with my acne. Like it!


    This is a must have for anyone with anti-aging concerns and it suits all skin types!! I swear on copper peptides. I had slight smile and fine lines on my forehead but with this product they have basically been 'buffed' out, no false advertising here. I use every night when not using an exfoliant or other specialised treatment.
  69. Works really well


    I love the ordinary. This makes my skin more even, smooth, toned, and soft! An amazing product for the price and lasted a fair while considering the size of the bottle!
  70. Both Buffets are great but this is better!


    I have combination skin with occasional pimples and scarring/ marks from past acne. I’ve used both buffets from the ordinary, whilst both are good and do what’s described, I much prefer the copper peptide as I definitely notice the higher collagen production and calming effect from this extra ingredient. I have used other copper peptide serums in the past which led me to getting this but it is fan...

  71. Good so far


    I’ve only been using this product for the last fortnight but I’ve noticed a difference with how fast my hormonal pimples heal up! Only a few tiny drops are necessary so a little goes a long way. Quick absorbing, I always follow it with HA and some moisturiser as it does create quite a tight feeling after application. I’ll continue to keep this product in my skincare routine!
  72. love!


    Copper is a wonderful & scientifically backed molecule when it comes to collagen building and anti-aging. Unfortunately, a minority of the population don’t react well to it. If your skin can’t tolerate copper than use the line’s Buffet serum without it but please don’t rate the product poorly because you aren’t able to tolerate it. Fortunately for me, copper products aren’t an issue. This product ...

  73. Wonderful all-rounder serum


    This is a light texture, super hydrating and helps with redness, spots (especially after extractions). It is soothing and plumping. 100% recommend, and fine to use day and night, and under makeup. I've noticed my skin to be more glowy and hydrated after one use, I can't wait to see what it does after a month.
  74. Great


    The best serum I'vr ever used.
    Just only a month and I can see the difference on my face. My fineline and dark spots are faded, my face looks really glow. I have problem from scar pit on my cheek and I feel that the skin is smoother than before, it minimises the pores as well. Love it and will purchase again.
  75. Anti-Aging Wonder Serum


    I've been using the regular Buffet serum for a while, which was good, but I was curious about the version with Copper Peptides. Within 10 days, the difference in the firmness of my skin is amazing! I put my hand up to my face and was shocked by how much firmer it felt. I would never go back to the regular Buffet serum, even though it is a very good product. This is worth every cent!
  76. Love it


    Im enjoying this product because it seems simple and im loving the results from one product rather than a cupboard full.
  77. Interesting product


    My skin's appearance has definitely improved since using this product. And was curious when I read another review that said it helped with wound-healing - I would have to agree it does seem to speed up the process. I have oily skin and find if I use this, plus a heavier moisturizer, I get very oily quickly through the day. But I am still finding my balance with including this gem into my daily rou...

  78. Good Serum


    Good serum for the price, have noticed a slightly more calming effect on my skin compared to the normal Buffet serum. Maybe not worth the price difference though.
  79. Kills multiple birds with one stone


    I purchased this for the copper as I was told it helps heal broken acne fast. It’s works. Wounds heal much quicker than usual and is cheaper than a lot of straight copper serums. I use it at night only. Will purchase again.
  80. the most expensive one around The ordinary


    Until now, it's the most pricy one serum in this brand. Blue colour serum, based on the basic Buffet serum. It works and good feeling. General speaking, it is a great serum.
    But I don't find the big difference between it and the basic buffet one. Twice price, I think I will repurchase the cheaper buffet.
  81. Nice.. but would stick to Buffet


    I liked this and am still using it. I think its a good serum, but not sure if its any better than the buffet serum, which is half the price. Unsure if I'll buy this one again, or just stick to the buffet.
  82. Great serum


    This was one of the first TO products I ever tried and I loved it! I've since purchased the normal Buffet (without copper peptides) and it works just as well, so given that it is a third of the price of this one, I'll probably stick to that one going forward. This is still a great product but I'd rather spend less money where I can if I'm going to get the same great results from it. I did find thi...

  83. Pricey but worth it


    I love using this serum after skin treatments such as microneedling. The copper peptide content really calms the skin down and is not as expensive as other copper peptide serums I have seen previously. It is much pricier than the normal buffet, but for the copper peptide content to use after skin treatments, it's definitely worth it.
  84. Wont be reordering


    Not a fan. For the price, expected much more noticeable effects. Love this brand and use many of their products but felt this was overpriced and did not notice significant improvement.
  85. Didn't rock my world.


    I purchased this version of Buffet instead of the normal one on a whim. I expected to notice a bigger different than I did. It hydrates and plumps my skin well.
    The serum due to the Copper is blue and smells metallic, which may put some people off. Given the price different between this and the regular buffet, I do not think its does enough. I did not however notice any difference between t...

  86. Worked great for my dry skin


    Birth control had made my skin go dry and this was a great serum in place of a great high end one I had previously used. Since being off BC and back to having a very oily acne-prone face it doesn't suit quite as well, as it's a bit too heavy. Nice for the price.
  87. Amazing


    I'm almost 40 and have needed to change my skin care and am loving the results of this product.


    I love this especially after I get a skin treatment it calms my skin. I use this a couple of times a week and it is definitely worth using. I got recommended another brand but I found this is the best value for money love love love it
  89. You get what you pay for


    I apply this serum after toner and it absorbs super fast and doesn't feel heavy ( I have combination and oily skin). The effects are rather limited and in general just lays foundation for the further cream. But the price is there and you won't have too high expectation from it. For those who haven't tried it before, I would recommend to have a go.
  90. Excellent!


    I love this product! I care a lot about my skincare and have a regimen but, when I don't have much time, this product or the original Buffet is all I need with a moisturiser. I have normal/dry skin and in my early 30s and love it!
  91. Good, but not sure if its Great?


    I liked this and am still using it. I think its a good serum, but not sure if its any better than the buffet serum, which is half the price. Unsure if I'll buy this one again, or just stick to the buffet.
  92. Noticeable effects


    I love this serum and notice my skin looks healthier the next morning. I do forget to use this as often as I would like however, as I have many other Ordinary products I use that I am wary should not be mixed with this particular product. In saying that, I find this product contributes to overall skin health and helps to even my skin tone. I have sun damage and some acne scars on my forehead that ...

  93. Good, but not great


    Like the other buffet serum, this does a good underlying support for your skin but the effect isn't really obvious. For the price, I didn't feel like this did enough, so I would recommend the original buffet serum or a great retinol product.
  94. Really good!


    I use this twice daily, especially after cosmetic procedures such as micro needling. The serum really works to heal, clear and brighten skin. Worth it!
  95. Definitely helps healing of wounds


    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 ...

  96. Great Product


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


    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!
  98. Skin has never looked so good!


    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.
  99. Love the quality.


    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.
  100. Pricey


    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.
