What Is The Ordinary Buffet & What Does It Do?
The easiest way to describe The Ordinary Buffet is a concoction of ingredients which fight multiple signs of ageing. It reduces fine lines & wrinkles, hydrates, fades dark spots, brightens, firms and smoothens the texture of the skin.
It’s one of the most popular water-based serums which people start using when they first hear about The Ordinary. It’s a great all-round product to use for all skin types, although there are some conflicts which you can read about further down. For more in-depth information about this product including ingredients, please consult the Deciem website.
Deciem’s easy explanation of The Ordinary Buffet. If you’re not too sure which peptide to go for, “Buffet” is an excellent choice to begin with. It features a comprehensive array of complex technologies within a single serum to target various visible signs of ageing all at once (such as static or dynamic lines and wrinkles, sagging and loss of elasticity).
How & When Do I Use Buffet?
The Ordinary Buffet is a water-based solution and can be used in the morning and in the evening. Start with cleansed skin and use a couple of drops over the entire face. It’s a water-based solution so this will be the first or one of the first layers of your skincare routine. There are products that conflict (read below) so you might find you can only use this once a day.
Which products conflict with Buffet?
Buffet shouldn’t be used with other products which include all the Direct Acids or Pure Vitamin C, The Ordinary (LAA) L´Ascorbic Acid Powder (ELAA) Ethylated Ascorbic Acid Solution, Vitamin C 23%, Vitamin c 30% or Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin.
This is Deciem´s response to mixing Peptides and Acids.
Our rule against combining strong antioxidants only applies to our products containing copper peptides. We would not recommend combining direct acids with peptides due to the susceptibility of peptides to hydrolysis (which breaks the bonds between peptides, reducing their efficacy and making them into individual amino acids). At low pH, the peptides undergo processes such as deamidation (the removal of an amide group) and oxidation, which compromise the activity of the peptides.
Having said that, if you have previously combined peptides with acids and have not experienced any negative side effects or discoloration, you may continue to combine the two products as so as the combination does not pose any potential harm. Our recommendations are meant to serve as a preventative measure to avoid any incompatibility between those combinations and also because skin tolerance in subjective.

Can I use Buffet if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
Buffet is fine to use. Avoid skincare products that may contain retinoids when pregnant or breastfeeding and always check with your consultant.
Does The Ordinary Buffet increase facial hair?
Quite a few people believe that their facial hair growth has increased with this product, however, 75% of Deciem Addicts on Instagram say they didn’t experience this. For some, it’s a positive result and have found it beneficial for their eyebrows and lashes.
Deciem says “Buffet contains PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil which functions as a solubilizer and does not cause hair growth.”

Rachel Buffet was the first product I tried from The Ordinary and found it worked so well on my fine lines…especially on my forehead!!
Nia Patten I found it a bit sticky under makeup and didn’t persevere to see the long term results

TEF says: I give it a 4/5 only because Buffet+Copper is available. I love that Buffet supports hydration, is easy to slowly add into a basic routine, diminishes lines and wrinkles, and helps with texture irregularities. My skin has never been this plump, smooth, and healthy before starting this. I dislike that so many have given Buffet a bad name by saying it promotes hair growth; the hair on my face did increase for a short time but when I asked my esthetician about it she advised it was just because of all of the peptides. After a few months it stopped and I miss my fuller eye brows. I would advise others to introduce Buffet slowly and individually; just because Buffet isn’t an active or acid doesn’t mean it can’t cause bad reactions if too much is used too often.
EBD says Love Buffet 4/10. I am on my 4th bottle. Do not apply too much. For me 3 drops is enough . And the price is awesome!!
CB says I’m really enjoying this product. Been using for a month.
CBK says pros: promotes hair growth, hellloooo lashes and revitalised traumatised 90’s brows. Great boost of hydration, plumps fine lines. Cons: hair growth, face fuzz. Overall 4.5/5.
TTH says I give it 5*. I just love it. Love it! Love the way it feels, love the way it makes my skin look.
Bought the birthday pack so when my Bottle is empty going to compare it to the one with copper.
But I just love Buffet! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤

CA says 2/5 initially thought I saw improvements then I got the peach fuzz🤦🏼♀️ just started buffet with copper and it’s breaking me out😭
JC says Had great faith in this product, but my sensitive skin disliked it 🙁.
MAG says… I would give 0/5 . On my second bottle in a year and have seen absolutely no results.
Harri says 1/5, did nothing for me. Subq is better but too pricy.
