Target multiple signs of ageing at once with Buffet by The Ordinary. The Ordinary Deciem has achieved global success with its high-performance products at affordable prices. The brand uses high-quality ingredients and no-frills marketing to deliver expert skincare products. Buffet is a potent multi-technology Peptide serum that tackles the visible signs of ageing skin.


Key benefits of The Ordinary Buffet


  • -Lightweight and easily absorbed water-based serum
  • -Used as part of an anti-ageing routine
  • -Targets multiple signs of ageing at once
  • -Helps to rehydrate dry and dehydrated complexions
  • -Non-comedogenic formula
  • - 30ml



How does The Ordinary Buffet work?

The Ordinary Buffet was developed to target multiple signs of ageing with a powerful cocktail of Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Amino Acids. The combination of 6 Peptide Complexes helps diminish fine lines and dynamic facial folds, whilst the Hyaluronic Acid plumps and hydrates the skin for a firmer look and feel. A blend of Amino Acids helps to stimulate collagen production for a hydrated and younger-looking complexion.


How to use The Ordinary Buffet

The Ordinary Buffet is a water-based solution that can be used in both a morning and evening skincare routine. It should be applied after cleansing and after other water-based serums, and before oil-based products and moisturisers.


Who should use The Ordinary Buffet?

The Ordinary Buffet is suitable for anyone who has developed signs of ageing. It is also beneficial to those who have dry or dehydrated skin and want an extra hydration boost.


What are the key ingredients in The Ordinary Buffet?

The Ordinary Buffet contains a potent blend of 6 Peptide Complexes and 11 skin-friendly Amino Acids. These are suspended in Hyaluronic Acid in multiple molecular weights to create a weightless, water-based formulation. This anti-ageing facial serum is also vegan, gluten-free, silicone-free, alcohol-free, and nut-free.


Other products The Ordinary Buffet works well with

The Ordinary Buffet works exceptionally well in combination with The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2%, The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%, and Natural Moisturising Factors + HA to form a well-rounded anti-ageing routine.


The Ordinary Buffet vs Matrixyl

If you are wondering which The Ordinary serum to choose for anti-ageing, Buffet and Matrixyl 10% + HA are popular choices. Whilst Matrixyl features a single Peptide Complex, Buffet contains 6 Peptide Complexes that work simultaneously for more dramatic results. The Buffet also contains Amino Acids, whereas Matrixyl 10% + HA does not contain any.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for acne?

The Buffet has been specifically designed for those with dry, dehydrated, or ageing skin. Whilst someone with acne may benefit from the smoothing and hydrating formula, it is not recommended as an acne treatment itself.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for scars and pigmentation?

This anti-ageing serum has not been specifically formulated with scarred or pigmented skin in mind. There are other products from The Ordinary skincare range that are more beneficial for those who suffer from scarring or pigmentation. However, The Buffet can still be used to achieve smoother and more hydrated skin.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for rosacea?

Those with rosacea may experience dehydration, so The Buffet serum could be used as part of a skincare routine to boost hydration levels. However, The Buffet is not a rosacea treatment in itself.


Is The Ordinary Buffet comedogenic?

The Ordinary Buffet is non-comedogenic.


Is The Ordinary Buffet good for wrinkles?

The Ordinary Buffet was developed with ageing and mature skin in mind, so this product is a particularly good treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. The blend of Peptides, Amino Acids, and Hyaluronic Acid helps to reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as diminish deeper, dynamic facial folds.

Nourishing - 21-02-2018 by

Feels like it’s definitely feeding the skin. Initially has a sticky texture but absorbs quite well after a few minutes. I have normal to oily combination skin and it doesn’t exacerbate my oily tzone and can be applied with other serums without a problem.

Awesome Product - 19-02-2018 by

I love this serum, as I do most of the products fro The Ordinary. They can be a little difficult to navigate however the wonderful staff form Adore were extremely helpful.
I notices result in 3 days of how my skin was feeling, visual results in 5 days. The price is almost ridiculous for the amazing brand.

Middle of the road. - 16-02-2018 by

Fair, uneven blemish prone skin. I found this to be a pretty average serum, but good for it's price. After two months of use i didn't notice any change in my skins tone or complexion, however my skin did feel nice and soft each morning. Would probably spend a bit more and get something that makes a noticeable difference.

Didn’t work for me - 16-02-2018 by

I have combination skin and this was just too heavy for my face. I felt clogged up and sticky and I couldn’t put anything else on top of this serum.

My favourite! - 05-02-2018 by

I honestly can’t rave enough about the ordinary products, but this one is my favourite! I use it at night before I go to sleep and leave it on overnight. My skin always looks and feels amazing after I wash it the next day. I’m on my second bottle and you bet I’ll keep on purchasing. My favourite buffet of all time!

Amazing! - 31-01-2018 by

Love this stuff, it’s literally a one thing does all! Since I’ve changed to using this morning and night I have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my skin, it’s more hydrated, my fine lines are dissappearing, and if I start to get a pimple this magic stuff makes it all but dissapear by morning. 100% recommend.

Wonderful and hydrating - 31-01-2018 by

I have dehydrated combination skin, and although at 21 I'm not the target market for this serum, I love it. I find that this serum is lovely and hydrating whilst remaining lightweight. I cannot speak for its anti-aging effects, but I do find that it helps to plump up my skin and makes me look less lacklustre.

Great for combination skin - 28-01-2018 by

Love using this as part of my daily routine!
Always feel that it improves small lines and enhances the plumpness in my skin. Would definitely recommend.

Best serum ever! - 23-01-2018 by

I truly love this great product! I’m 62 with fair, dehydrated skin (except for an oily nose area), I have expression lines, some small areas of hyperpigmentation and my undereye areas are quite deepset and dark. Quite a bit to work on!
I’ve been using the Buffet for 3 weeks and can see a great improvement in hydration and clarity, and my skin is looking and feeling so much healthier.
Yes, it can be a sticky formula if you use too much- 3 drops are ample. After cleansing, I use Paula’s Choice Resist toner and while my skin is still damp I apply the Buffet- this really helps the serum to sink in quickly. In the daytime I religiously use sunscreen, and at night I use the Ordinary niacinamide serum after the Buffet. The difference in my skin is amazing, and I can’t wait to trial other products in this line!

So far, so good - 17-01-2018 by

I like that this absorbs so quickly. I have had a lovely texture to my skin since using it.

Will Stay in my Life! - 08-01-2018 by

I absolutely love this product! It's very hydrating and plumps up my dehydrated skin! On my second bottle!

A Lovely Product ! - 28-12-2017 by

Oily & dehydrated skin left even toned, plumped, and just the best it's been in years. On my 3rd bottle - says it all really.

Great serum - 27-12-2017 by

I have combination erring on the side of sensitive skin - my cheeks and around my mouth and nose can get dry and irritated easily, and my t-zone is oily. I apply this product AM and PM and within a couple of weeks it has made a noticeable difference. My skin is more even and my complexion is brighter. Overall, I'd highly recommend!

Amazing! - 27-12-2017 by

I can't believe this product! The texture is so good and the results are amazing. I'm in my 40's and I can see the softening of fine lines and my skin looks more plump. For value for money this product can't be beat. I love all The Ordinary products and this is no exception it will be a repeat purchase.

Holy Grail Product - 20-12-2017 by

I swear by this and will never stop using it, it is the best thing I have ever put on my skin. Better than any high end serum I have tried, and I have tried lots! I have normal skin with mild dermatitis around my nose that was impossible to treat until I found this! I started using it before a light argan oil followed by the The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 then a moisturiser & my skin became flawless in weeks! The dermatitis has completely gone, I have a even & bright skin tone, it’s so smooth and I even feel comfortable without foundation. I have since added a retinoid to my regime & my 32 year old skin is better than it was when I was 20. I swear this stuff is so worth the hype!

Great effect - poor texture - 19-12-2017 by

This is lovely at night, helps my skin glow. Haven't seen a dramatic effect on my fine lines, but it does help me wake up with skin that is hydrated and glowing.
My only problem is it makes makeup ball up when applied over the top. Something to do with how it interacts with my primer, I think. So now I just use it at night, and it is fine then.

Can’t be without it. - 19-12-2017 by

Im 31, I have a normal, oily skin. Oily on t-zone. this product is always on my skin care since tried it. Im on my second bottle. This gives my skin a nice feel, since using it i notice a lot of difference on my skin. I get break out sometimes but not bad. This product lessen that, even my skin tone, lessen my oily tzone. I apply it in the morning and evening. A little goes a long way. This product gives an amazing result on my skin. Will keep using it, definitely will purchase again.

Works wonders on combination skin - 14-12-2017 by

I'm very acne prone, with dry undereyes and nose. I added the buffet in conjunction with the argireline 10%, magnesium 10% and caffeine solution (for an extra eye boost). I can't contribute success to any particular one, but the buffet is my full face serum am & pm.

After a months use I've noticed a dramatic reduction in new spots, and they are now smaller and less red. My previously dull skin now looks brighter and more lively, and I no longer have large dry patches along my orbital bone area.

This is not a quick fix serum (for me at least) but with continual use, you will begin seeing a difference in around 2 weeks. With twice a day usage, I still have over half a bottle left, as a little bit stretches a long way. When I feel particularly dull, I use a thicker layer overnight, and wake up back to bright.

The scent is minimal, and disappeared quickly, but it can take time to sink in before adding other products. It can feel a bit tacky, but after a moisturiser skin is left feeling smooth and soft.

Not for me - 12-12-2017 by

It must've been my specific skin type but I don't think it did anything for my skin. I'm 34, with skin on the dry/sensitive side. I religiously applied this every night but nothing happened. My skin didn't feel any different from when I wasn't using it. It gets two stars though because at least it didn't break me out. I've switched to another serum (Beauty Chef) and that's been better for me.

Pretty good - not my favourite ordinary product though - 04-12-2017 by

I'm onto my third bottle of this, I use it in the morning before my ordinary vitamin C.
I think that over time it has improved my hydration levels, although it doesn't give an instant plumping burst which is what i often need in the morning.
Like many other ordinary products, I find that the results it delivers with constant use outweighs the slightly annoying texture - this one feels a bit tacky on the skin but that goes away once you layer other products. Less is more, if you pile on too much it peels through the day.

Fabulous multivitamin for my skin - 04-12-2017 by

Love how the buffet makes my skin feel, like a multivitamin for the skin. I’ve finished my first bottle and am about to purchase a new one, my skin has never looked better, smoother and more radiant. Definitely a new new addition to my skin routine.

Pleasantly Surprised! - 27-11-2017 by

I'm a few months of 57 and have done my skin no favours, in the sun and in my 40's in sunbeds ever second day. I have dry skin with an oily t zone at times my skin can feel quite taut after skin tone was uneven and red blotchy. Enter this product paired with ALPHA-H Liquid Gold 24 Hour Moisture used in the evenings.. Mornings are Buffet with Aspect Phytostat 9.
I was sceptical when I bought Buffet, I couldn't see how it could possibly do what it said, and with such an economical price tag.. after a few days I noticed my skin seemed softer, after a few weeks, the skin around my eyes ( a problem area) is looking plumber and smoother. I can now use this product alone with moisture if I choose too - it was $24.90 well spent. So if your feeling a bit on the fence about trying it, I recommend it.. it truly has made a difference.

At first I thought this was neither here nor there, now I need a 2nd bottle - 27-11-2017 by

I am 42, with fair skin prone to freckles and sun damage. I have always been sun smart and cared for my skin and it shows.

I use this product in the morning after I use Niancinamide, and before my moisturiser with spf. This product gives me that dewy 'highlighter' glow without using one. I have also found when I use this my face looks fresh all day. I do not get that 'dried out at the office' look that happens in harsh air conditioning.

I didn't realise the benefits of this until I went a week without using it, then picked it up again. I would recommend this one, it is in the higher price range for this brand but worth it. I only see the requirement for it as a day time serum.

I like it, but perhaps I like Matrixyl more... - 22-11-2017 by

I have only been using it for maybe a month now and its nice. I apply it after the Ordinary HA, do this morning and night and in the night will layer other things such as Vit C or Niacinamide or Retinol. It seems to create a nicely moisturised base and leaves my skin hydrated. I cant speak to the anti ageing side of things but it definitely does help with day to day dryness. Perhaps over time thing will improve gradually in other areas too - time will tell.

I do feel however that I might like the Matrixyl better. When I ran out of that, I got this to try - and I think the Matrixyl leaves my skin more plump and dewy - but this one is still great.

My favourite night serum - 14-11-2017 by

This is the perfect all round product! You can wash your face just use this and moisturise and go to bed when you are really tired and your skin looks and feels amazing. My favourite product out of the range!

Great and cheap serum - 13-11-2017 by

This serum is both cheap and works well - it's the perfect addition to my skincare routine!

This stuff is amazing! - 13-11-2017 by

I'm on my second bottle of Buffet & can honestly say I've never seen my skin texture looking so good.

I actually brought some for my mum & she loves it


Amazing - 30-10-2017 by

This product is my first foray into anti ageing and I am in love!

The first fine lines around my eyes are no longer visible and my foundation is smooth and even all over my face where before it would kind of sink into little lines.

My skin texture is amazing also, so hydrated and plump. I have had numerous compliments since starting to use this product.

The price at not even $25 is ridiculous! Nothing near where I thought I would be paying for anti ageing skin care that works as amazingly as Buffet

On my 2nd bottle - 30-10-2017 by

Noticed a difference within the first few days of using it. Have recommended it to all my friends with the same skin concerns (brightening and evenness of skin tone). I love it most, cos it layers well with everything and I can use it anytime of the day .

It actually does what it says.. - 25-10-2017 by

I bought a few products from the ordinary to start my new skincare regime (and did a lot of research on it through their website to make sure nothing will cancel each other out). First I’ll let you know what my skin is like:
*Dry patches.
*very oily t zone.
*large pores.
*Very puffy in the morning.
*Very red, uneven texture and pigmentation.
I love the buffet! I have noticed a difference already after only using these products for nearly two weeks. My skin texture and pigmentation has improved, I have less small lines (like that soft craggy skin), my skin has more of a healthy glow, and as someone who deals with having very red skin on the reg, I found this product has helped a lot. My redness isn’t as vibrant and my skin looks a lot smoother. I can’t wait to see the results in a month! The buffet is sticky when first applied but with a quick fan, it dries quickly so you’re able to apply your moisturiser or other finishing products. I’m officially a super fan. I would recommend going onto the ordinary website and looking through the products to decide your routine and what it suited, as some products combined may be too much or cancel each other out because some products can’t be mixed with eater, while others can. Then coming back to adore to purchase! (the ordinary can take months to deliver and adore is super quick!)

2nd Bottle of Goodness ! - 25-10-2017 by

A definite repurchased product that my oily & dehydrated skin loves soaking up. Leaving it even toned, plumped & hydrated.

I use this Buffet half an hour before the Vitamin C Suspension. Love the comination !!!

Can already see results - 25-10-2017 by

I have been using the product for two weeks and already I can see my skin loving this product. A little goes a long way. You literally only need a tiny bit and it covers the whole face. I definitely will buy this product again when I run out!

Nice, but needs a long time to absorb - 24-10-2017 by

I like the way this serum feels on my skin, but it does take a long time to absorb, and does have a tendency to pill (especially if you apply anything oil-based over the top). I'm 28 with very fair, combination, acne-prone skin, so I was looking at this as an anti-aging preventative measure, really. Overall I like it so far.

Great hydrating serum - 22-10-2017 by

I've been using this serum for probably about 5 months and i think its made a real difference in the plumpness of my skin. Its a lovely consistency and doesn't smell like anything and lasts about two months for me using twice a day. Its really hydrating and will help combat any dehydration lines, but doesn't stop wrinkles or fine lines

Amazing serum - 20-10-2017 by

This is probably my favourite of all the Ordinary products and the most potent too. This serum absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy or sticky film on my skin and it doesn't ball up when your layering other products on top, which is a big deal breaker for me. It is hydrating and I feel my skin plump up. You may not notice incredible results straight away but when you run out of a bottle, that's when you will notice the difference in your skin. This serum is fine on my very oily skin too.

Amazing serum - 12-10-2017 by

I purchased several of The Ordinary products and have been very impressed with their quality & effectiveness. This in combination with The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA has made a real difference to my mature, combination skin. It's been particularly effective in clearing up some dry patches that I've been trying to get rid of for ages. I certainly won't be going back to the expensive products I've been using in the past.

My skin loves it - 10-10-2017 by

This is my favourite part of my skin routine, for both morning and night. After only a few weeks I can see a huge improvement in the texture of my skin.
When it goes on the skin can feel like there is a slightly tacky film over it, but that passes but also makes a great base for your makeup in the morning.

Changed my complexion in a week! - 25-09-2017 by

My skin was not looking great, my rosacea was at it's worst, my complexion was dull, dry and I looked 10 years older than I am. I brought this because of all the hype I had heard about The Ordinary, honestly I wasn't expecting much but figured it was worth the risk given the price. I noticed positive change to my complexion within a week. My skin felt hydrated, my rosacea was dramatically diminished and I had my natural glow back. I will definitely purchase this product again. Thank you The Ordinary!

Does what it says! - 18-09-2017 by

My skin was dry, lacklustre, uneven and looking ' old' in general. Since using this product, it has come back to life! My skin is radiant and plumped up and looking amazing. I do notice a bit of a sticky feeling as it dries for a minute or two, and it is slightly heavier than some other 'the ordinary' serums, but its nothing terrible.

Very Good - 13-09-2017 by

Bought this product a couple of weeks ago and have been using this before bed and in the mornings.
I have noticed that my face feels a lot smoother and slightly brighter.
Will continue to use this as a night serum.

Love it - 12-09-2017 by

I started using this a couple of months ago and love it. It's cheap, easy to use and so good. My skin is soft, radiant and plumped. I use it morning and night, after cleansing and before moisturising. An interstate friend, a doctor who works for an aesthetic beauty clinic, came to see me and asked me what I was using as my skin looked so fantastic. A+.

Must Have - 03-09-2017 by

Very good for sensitive skin and full of miracles

Skin's Best Friend - 02-09-2017 by

After 2 months use applied morning and evening my skin feels beautifully plumped and healthy.

There's a stickiness after application though that isn't a concern. No discomfort at all.

My skin loves this product !!!

EXTRAordinary - 18-08-2017 by

WOW! This serum has changed my skin. It is lightweight yet hydrating and instantly plumps and smooths the skin. It makes me glow! The saggy skin around my eyes is all but gone and the texture and tone of my skin has improved dramatically. I'm in love. HG for sure. I pray they never stop making this. Time in a bottle!

Fantastic! - 16-08-2017 by

I'm in that awkward stage of life where I'm still getting big greasy pores and pimples and some nice lines.
After 1 week of this my skin has never ever felt so amazing. I am using this twice a day and the Advanced retinoid at night. I'm getting compliments on my skin almost every day!
I'm a convert!

Good serum - 10-08-2017 by

this serum is good, goes on nicely and is not sticky or thick at all :) put this on before all other serums!

Brilliant - 06-08-2017 by

Love this product. I sometimes mix it with vitamin c serum or rose hip oil or just apply alone. My skin feels softer and hydrated. Will definitely continue to purchase.

Love this product! - 28-07-2017 by

It took me 3 months of thinking about buying this product to actually put it in my shopping cart. I read and watched countless reviews about The Ordinary, it can't possibly be as good as the reviews can it? I have now been using this product for 2 weeks and my skin looks and feels amazing. I have super sensitive skin and it hasn't reacted at all. I'm already telling all my friends about this product. You can't beat the price! I will be buying more from The Ordinary in the future.

Love it! - 25-07-2017 by

Looove this! If you don't know what to get out of all the ordinary products definitely get this one. It has a little of everything in it. Works well for all skin types and I have seen a difference with my skin after using it for couple of weeks, Definitely will be repurchasing.

Can't be more impressed - 25-07-2017 by

I'm not one to get sucked into the hype but Wow! The Ordinary Buffet really is revolutionary. No longer will I be spending big on a serum - the one item of skincare I've always felt it necessary to do so on. The Buffet does it all. It's not sticky, sinks in immediately, smoothes out skin and it's 25 bucks!

Seriously, try it. You can't be disappointed.


The Ordinary have completely revoluntionised my skincare routine! I have been using a variety of products over the last few months and have found nothing but good results from everything.

Buffet is a beautiful product I use morning and night, and have seen visible difference with lines and complexion (esp when used with the Niacinamide in the AM).

Counting down the minutes til I can order their foundation.

Great all rounder - 07-06-2017 by

I've been using this day and night for the last couple of weeks and have seen a significant improvement in my skin. This helps simplify my skincare routine and has the benefits of many products in one serum. Highly recommend, especially considering the price compared to other products of the same caliber!

All you can eat - 26-05-2017 by

This isn't called Buffet for no reason. It might seem at the pricier end of The Ordinary spectrum but 's a little bit of three products so well worth the money. My skin feels amazing!
