Biggest cynic ever is now a believer


Last time I came off my OCP my skin went nuts with pimples and uneven dryness so that it was impossible to control. I wash my face in the shower in the morning and use the The Ordinary squalene cleanser at night, as well as this kit as instructed, and my skin is perfectly clear. Even better it has stayed this way despite stopping the OCP again for two months now. My skin feels soft and looks glowing. I’m a convert. It won’t work for everyone but it sure worked for me.

The set!


this set is a really good price for what you get! can leave sensitive skin a bit red! but nothing major!

  2. Great introduction to this brand


    This pack from The Ordinary is a great place to start for those unsure about their skincare routine. I used these three products as a three step routine when I first began using The Ordinary products. I noticed after only a few days my skin was brighter, more supple and I had less pigmentation. I’m now obsessed with this brand!
  3. Convenient pack of cult favourites


    Why haven’t I bought this pack before!?!? I’ve been buying the Buffet and Retinoid as separate items like a fool! This was my first time using the moisturiser and I’m in love. I’ve just switched from Skinstitut to The Ordinary and my skin is drinking in this new moisturiser without increasing oil. Will buy again.
  4. Great introduction to their range


    I personally started with this kit as a gift and it was a great introduction into the entire skincare range once I could work out what products were best for me. Given that the Ordinary range can be a bit confusing at the best of times, this was a really easy-to-use and effective kit that made me fall in love with the brand.
  5. Great product and price


    I bought a 30ml bottle of Buffet, which lasted me 4 months (2 drops each night and morning). I was looking to add retinoids to my regime and came across this, which is cheaper than buying the products individually.

    I love buffet. It makes my skin glow and look less tired. I am a 30yr old female with a fair complexion that has seen a bit too much sun.

  6. Great products and good value


    Great set, the Buffet for the morning and the Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion for at night, the retinoid is good with no irritation.

    I haven't noticed any wow results yet, but have only been using products for a month, but over all happy with how my skin is looking.
  7. Easy!


    This was the first time I tried the ordinary products and it was great. You had just what you needed to give it a try I loved every product and am hooked on the brand.
  8. Great gift idea


    This makes such a lovely gift. Bought it for a friend who is now hooked on the ordinary like me
  9. Love this Set


    verified purchaser
    My first try with The Ordinary products, and I think I’ve found my new skincare routine! Skin feels so soft and bright. This pack is perfect for travel and I found it lasts a while. Will definitely be ordering more.
  10. Great first starter!


    This pack was my first introduction to The ordinary. I didn't know where to start and I went with this pack. It has everything and Love how The ordinary makes my skin feel so soft and helps with my acne. Love it!
  11. yes yes yes!!


    was a bit skepical because of the price but it did not dissapoint! what great products at even better prices! my skin has never felt better!!!
  12. Supple skin


    Love these 3 products great size to first try ordinary products to see if suitable.
    After purchase I was also sent information on other ordinary products.
    Will buy again.
  13. The three!!!


    Only need a pea size drop to cover your entire face which is great. The three serum is LOVELY. It's light and hydrating, which is so nice. it just melts into the skin and my skin looks SO good. Has really helped smooth my skin and reduce redness and pores.
  14. Yes


    Worth every cent! If you dont know where to start get this kit! Youll see results pretty much straight away
  15. 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!
  16. Amazing option for first time buyers!


    Was really overwhelmed by all the different products, this was a great starting point. My skin is quite dry so all three products were complimentary. My favourite out of the three would be the buffet, I was really surprised at how its so revitalising for my skin- kind of like food to nourish it! But they all compliment each other. Great starting point.
  17. Best way to start using The Ordinary skincare


    Brilliant combination of products to get me familiar with range and love it so much I'll b adding to my range
  18. Hero Product.


    Great anti-aging set. All of the products are top notch. I would give five stars if they came in a pump bottle, that's my only complaint.
  19. Great set


    Three great products in this set. Take care to use your retinol as per instructions build up to using daily I use it once a week at the moment. You could also purchase the Daily Set use Daily am and this set PM.
  20. Perfect if you're new to The Ordinary


    I bought this because I wanted to try products from The Ordinary and wasn't sure what I really needed aside from knowing I wanted something anti-ageing. This set is excellent if you want to trial their products before incorporating them into your regime. My favourite in the set is the buffet serum. Its light, noursihing and absorbs well into the skin. I haven't tried the retinol solution yet (stil...

  21. Skin saviour!!


    I decided to try these after reading reviews on each product, and the affordable price point. It’s only been 2 weeks and my skin has never been healthier. I suffer quite badly from hormonal dryness around my chin and jaw line and this has stopped it in its tracks! My skin feels fresh, hydrated and the texture is so much smoother. Each product tells you whether to use AM/PM and in what order to app...

    this is such a good beginner kit into the world of anti-aging! I highly rec this for ppl in their mid 20s as you have a plumping peptide serum, a gentle retinoid and a barrier restoring moisturiser all for a great price. the ingredients are also great so I doubt many people will have a reaction to this. fantastic for people with combo to dry skin, but I wouldn't rec for very dry or very oily skin ...

  23. Perfect Trio


    I have used these all individually and loved the reuslts for my skin to reduce pigmentationa nd leave a better hydrtaed feel on my skin. Together this package is a great deal
  24. Great starter kit


    This was a great starter kit to try out "The Ordinary".. I'm about to order more products to help with blemishes and sunspots.
    The buffet is awesome and always makes my skin feel "dewy" and fresh. The moisturizer is also light and nice for everyday use under make up.
    I havent used the granactive retinoid enough to notice much results but I look forward to using it more!
  25. Well priced, skin feels better!


    Love The Buffet & Retinoid, I use at night and wake up skin looks healthier. Moisturiser is good but not yet loving it. Keen to try out more products from The Ordinary.
  26. Apprehensive but worth the risk


    I wasn’t overalls sure about the ordinary... skincare that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg?! Couldn’t work!!! It definitely does. I tried the no brainer set as an introduction to their products and have since bought more. I love it. My skin feels really good after use.
  27. An absolutely fantastic introduction to the Ordinary!!

    Emma Loves Skincare

    If you have never tried any of the Ordinary products, I highly recommend giving this pack a go! It has 3 popular and highly reviewed products that gives a great overview of what their products are like. My favourite of these 3 is the Retinoid which is a perfect introduction to Vitamin A products - I honestly can't live without a Retinoid or Retinol in my skincare routine now! I love to put on the ...

    This was my first purchase from this brand. I have to say, it was definitely a great introduction! Great for beginners.
  29. Great set


    This is a great set to get into the ordinary, especially if you are having a hard time choosing which product to buy. Great price and i love all the products.

    I love this so much. TO is the best and does wonders for my skin.
  31. Made such a difference!

    Anna C

    I was recommended The Ordinary brand, particularly Buffet, by my Beauty Therapist friend. I looked in local stores but couldn't find it, so came online and the prices on Adore Beauty were so great, I had to try it!
    I have dehydrated skin, and had been using oils to try to combat the issue (which I now know is more for dry skin which is different!). The HA in Buffet and the moisturizer made a...

    My hyperpigmentation isn't really going away, but my skin seems more plumped. My fine lines aren't as prominent.
  33. Soo happy, will buy forever


    I'm so happy I discovered The Ordinary products. I used to spends hundreds on products, I could easy spend $100 on a cleanser alone and hundreds when it came to any serum, vitamin C, retinol etc. TO products are so cheap, but they actually work just as good as some of the best products I've used, and even better than most. For the price, I can't justify going back to more expensive products that m...

  35. An amazing foundation for skincare newbies


    I'd never tried skincare before but was sick of all the breakouts, pigmentation from acne, and patches of dry skin. This no-brainer set was a lifesaver for me. Not only did I not have to put much thought into the products I was using, but it completely saved my skin. I absolutely recommend this product as a starter for anyone new to the skincare game - at such a good price, how could you say no??
  36. Worth the money!


    I have been using the ordinary for about 6 months now.
    I have some hyperpigmentations, some fine lines on my forehead and just general dryness.

    The hyperpigmentation isn't really going away, but my skin seems more plumped out and hydrated than before. My fine lines aren't as prominent, my skin seems to have a glow and make up goes on much nicer than before.

    Best way to start with this brand. Love how it feels on my skin and my wallet!!
  38. good value package


    The price is quite affordable and the quality of the product is perfect.
  39. A great pack for beginners


    This was the first The Ordinary products that I bought after hearing raving reviews. The set works well in terms of anti-aging. Highly recommend.
  40. Perfectly named


    I'd heard about the Ordinary but had no idea where to start, this really did make it so easy. I noticed the difference in my skin immediately with the Buffet and AHA moisturizer, and after easing into the 2% Retinoid as advised, I am a solid convert to the Ordinary- after using more basic skincare for years, this range is amazing.
  41. Awesome set


    I bought this because I had run out of retinol and had heard good things about TO's buffet. I am totally sold on it - my skin has felt so moisturised and supple since I got this pack! The moisturiser is really nice too, and you don't need very much for full face coverage. Really happy, would buy this set again or give as a gift.
  42. THE BEST!


    Buy this for everyone! The best little set and a great intro to a cult brand. All these products are amazing and easily slotted into an existing or new routine. I'd add HA 2% + B5 for extra hydration.

    TIP: Make sure to patch test before use!!
  43. Great


    This has helped my skin barrier a lot. Will buy again
  44. great starter kit


    I had been keen to try The Ordinary for a while as I had seen good feedback & like the look of the cheaper pricing.
    This was the perfect kit to get started with - all 3 products were great & my skin reacted really well to them (no breakouts since using the products!)
    I have since done some more research into The Ordinary & purchased a few others to add to my skin care routine - the ...

    This was the first thing I ever purchased from this brand. I had heard great things and it DELIVERED!

    The buffet alone is my favourite item.

    I’ve now upgraded to many more items (and a higher retinol) but I will always recommend this to people who want to dip their toes into the products. I noticed a difference almost immediately.

    After trialing another The Ordinary product and so impressed with it, I purchased this set and it literally was a “No Brainer”. My skin looks and feels incredible. Going from a week of dreadful breakouts to beautiful soft clear skin, where people have commented on how gorgeous my skin looks, I have been converted. The moisturiser should be applied in small amounts after the serums have had time to...

  50. Excellent and worth trying


    I highly recommend this product, I have tried multiple serums and moisturises and this is by far the best value for money. I have incredibly sensitive skin- I did a skin patch test...all appeared to be great. I have implemented this into my skin regime for the last week and I can already see the difference in hydration and softened skin.
  51. Amazing!


    I love The Ordinary products! They’re easy to use, affordable and do wonders for your skin!
  52. Good to try


    Found out that I love the buffet! Not keen on the other two products but at such a low price still worth trying out.
  53. Great starters kit for people wanting to try The Ordinary


    Literally a no brainer set!! this set is great and at such a great price point!
    It includes three of the classic products which all work great on my skin type (which is combo)!
    My skin is soft, hydrated and looks fantastic with this combo of products!
    Totally worth the price to try it out!
  54. Great starter


    If haven't tried these products this is the way to good and you will instantly fall in love!
  55. Great


    Less is more. These products have made such a big difference to my skin and I don't think I'll stop using these at night
  56. Didn't love it


    I really wanted to love these products but they didn't do much for me. I have hormonal acne, and I have started to get some fine lines, but this really didn't do the trick for me. The moisturiser didn't sink in very well, I really enjoyed the tightening sensation from the serum, and the retinoid was a bit meh. Won't be buying again, and have moved on to other products.
  57. Great


    This package is such good value for money and I use all these three products as part of my night routine. Essential kit!
  58. skin saviour


    I have been using these products for just over a week and have seen such a good improvement in my skin already! I wake up of a morning with a brighter complexion and smoother tone. Such good value for money, can't wait to see the results after more time.
  59. looove


    This is a wonderful way to try the range! It is very hydrating as it penetrates deeply into the skin and leaves a lovely scent afterwards
  60. Great value


    I love the ordinary brand because it is such good value for money for the quality of the products. This set is as it says a no brainer. It has three wonderful products that improve the complexion. The ingredients in these product make the appearance of the skin more youthful. Great for anyone wanting smooth and soften their skin.
  61. love these products


    my skin feels AMAZING after using these products
  62. Great starter kit


    I got given this as a gift and I instantly fell in love with this brand. It’s simple and straight to the point and does exactly what it’s made for. Great to get a taste of what the brands about and you won’t be disappointed!!
  63. Great starter


    If you’ve never tried The Ordinary here’s a great bundle to get you started! Don’t forget to purchase with the squalene cleanser for a basic beauty bundle that will surprise you with how great your skin feels and looks. Love it!
  64. Perfect start


    If you dont know where to start with the ordinary products this is the perfect first step! Easy products that you will see results in just a few days. You can easily add other products from their lineup to your routine aswell!
  65. Amazing!!


    I bought this as an introduction to The Ordinary and I have since fallen in love with the brand. Everything is such high quality for such a low price point!
  66. Love this brand.


    I bought this set for my mother, and she loves it. She isn't into expensive skin care and thinks it's a bit of a rouse, but likes the Ordinary. The moisturiser is way smaller than the other one though so I'm not sure if you save anything in this pack. Might be more economical to buy the products individually actually! Hence why I'm rating this particular product 3 stars, but I think the Ordinary i...

  67. Brilliant starter kit


    This kit made an immediate impact on my skin and prompted me to change up my routine and research other products. I use everything in this box and particularly love the retinoid product. My skin is so soft and my pores are noticeably smaller. Thanks T.O!
  68. Noticeable difference


    After endless nights researching I finally dived in and purchased the no brainer set. I’ve been using it alongside their gycolic toning solution for almost 2 weeks now and can already see changes. My dull tired face has a bit more of a glow to it and the texture is a lot smoother. I think I’ll need a little bit more time to notice any major difference on lines and wrinkles but I’m very hopeful. No...

  71. Unbelievable value


    After looking for a new skincare regime because of the emergence of some fine (and one not-so-fine) lines, I tried The Ordinary purely for the price-point.

    NOTE: I thought this would be a good value starter pack.

  73. Great Pack


    Bought this pack as my introduction to The Ordinary (and have repurchased because of value!) I love Buffet as an overall serum, and the retinoid is very gentle on the skin. The moisturiser is a good basic moisturiser, and layers well. Would recommend this pack.
  74. Value


    Good value starter kit for those wanting to try out the range
  75. suitable for acne


    helped cleared up my acne tremendously and has really brightened my face and made me look more youthful
  76. Retinol is a winner


    This is an affordable and effective skincare regime.. the retinoids is the best part of this package and I’ve noticed the difference in fine lines within a few weeks of using it. The moisturiser is good, but doesn’t keep my skin hydrated all day and isn’t great under makeup. The buffer I could take or leave it.. I don’t enjoy the sticky feeling of it even once it’s been rubbed in and absorbed.

  79. Such great value!


    This pack has really all you need for a skincare routine (just add SPF!). I found the moisturiser to be very basic which is great for sensitive skin. The buffet is a great allrounder product for skincare beginners as it has peptides and HA. The retinoid didn't do much for my skin unfortunately but I will purchase a higher strength.
  80. Fantastic starter pack


    I love this set! This is a great starter for people just starting to use skincare products.

    The Buffet leaves my skin feeling super soft and doesn't leave any kind of greasy residue. It's also good as a primer for makeup, I've found.

    The moisturiser is very gentle. Almost all moisturisers cause my skin to break out, but I haven't found an increase in acne since using this...

    It worked when i first started using it and cleared up my skin but since continuing using it i've found it has caused more breakout especially around my chin area and especially when using all three products.

  83. just perfect for acne!


    i got this as a gift and I've never loved anything more! it has cleared my acne without making my face dry. I could see results in just 2 weeks. Honestly love these products so much 10/10 recommend!!!!!
  84. So far, very good


    I haven't noticed much improvement, but I've been using it only for a week. So far I'm very satisfied because I feel my skin smoother. I have mixed and oily skin, I think the hydrating cream is not the best for me, so I use very little.
  85. Great value and even better product


    Such great value for three products that work wonders on my skin. I have heard the Buffet can cause peach fluff, but so far so good! Skin is looking the best it has in years!
  86. Fantastic set!


    This set is a fantastic introduction to ‘The Ordinary’s’ fabulous products. Great value. Easy to use!
  87. Fantastic quality


    Amazing quality products that actually do what they claim but at such an affordable price! Great value for money pack!!
  88. Amazing


    I have used it previously but stopped for a while as was having bad rosacea. I have just started again and my skin is so good
  89. perfect starter


    I love these three products, I use the buffer in the morning which gives my skin a smooth hydrated and tight look. I use the other two products at night ! It has helped reduce my fine lines!!
  90. Wow!!


    Absolutely love these three products, I use the buffer in the morning after cleansing and get a really smooth tight look in my face. I use the other two products at night and feel and look fantastic. It has helped remove my wrinkle in my forehead so I am really happy with the product!
  91. Good for starters


    I was really confused from where to start my skincare regime with TO..and then i found this kit..very nice addition to my regime not to harsh on skin like other acidic product, easy to use and good on pocket.Good for my sensitive and acne prone skin.
  92. Meh - tacky texture


    I was interested in The Ordinary and attracted by the price point, but alas I'm not a fan. The Buffet texture is too tacky and the moisturiser takes a lot of work to smooth into my combination skin. Granactive Retinoid Emulsion is the best product of this set, reasonable for price point.
  93. Amazing


    My skin has never been this good. I love the results of this kit and recommend it for getting incredible skin.
  94. Rippa Deal!


    This pack Is amazing and such good value for a starter pack. If you're starting with reitonol this is an awesome was to start. Love the moisturiser and the lock in serum felt a huge difference in my skin a way after starting!
  95. IT WORKS!


    Bought this set for my husband last week and I can see a difference in his skin already, much brighter !
  96. Awesome


    love this set to be introduced to the brand, cleared my acne prone skin in a couple of uses will be defintely purchasing full size versions, highly recommend
