What Is The Ordinary Buffet + Copper Peptides 1% & What Does It Do?
Buffet + Copper Peptides 1% is The Ordinary Buffet with the added benefit of copper which focuses on overall skin health. Copper can help the build new collagen and elastin into the skin. Overall it’s a brilliant product for general skin health targeting many signs of ageing at once.
Deciem’s Simple Explanation “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 1% – All the goodness of “Buffet” with the additional benefits of a 1% concentration of GHK-Cu (Copper Tripeptide), which focuses on the maintenance of general skin health by encouraging the skin to enter a constant state of repair. This aims to ward against loss of skin elasticity, firmness and plumpness and to help ‘undo’ the impact of our stress-filled, busy lifestyle.
How & When Do I Use The Ordinary Buffet + Copper?
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 before applying other products. There are quite a few products that conflict with this (see below) so you might find you can only use this once a day.
Which Products Conflict With The Ordinary Buffet + Copper?
This is a tricky one as there are quite a few conflicts! Buffet + Copper Peptides shouldn’t be used in the same routine as the following products:
- Direct Acids (as listed under The Ordinary)
- Pure Vitamin C
- L´Ascorbic Acid Powder (LAA)
- Ethylated Ascorbic Acid Solution (ELAA
- Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin
- Vitamin C 23% & 30%
- Other products that contain copper peptides
- Strong Antioxidants – EUK 134, Alpha Lipoic & Resveratrol + Ferulic Acid.
- If you are using other brands, you need to check the ingredients of them too.
- Whilst it doesn´t say don´t use with Retinols on their official regimen page, we have been told that they shouldn´t be used in the same routine.
This is Deciem´s response about 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. Hope this helps!
What Can I use Buffet + Copper With?
Use alone or you can use one of the Vitamin C product which have no conflicts, Magnesium Ascorbyl, Tetraisopalmitate Solution, Ascorbyl Glucoside or any of the oils and hydrators.
Can I use Buffet + Copper if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding.
Buffet + Copper is ok to use. Avoid skincare products that may contain retinoids when pregnant or breastfeeding and always check with your consultant.
Does Buffet + Copper Increase Facial Hair Growth?

The Ordinary Buffet + Copper Reviews
Let’s hear what some of the moderators of the Deciem Chat Room have to say about Buffet + Copper Peptides.
Nia Patten My review is- “Buffet and Copper peptides has fantastic ingredients and I recommend for a gentle long term way to tackle aging. Unfortunately I have to use azeleic acid morning and night for my acne so I haven’t been able to give it a fair trial.”
Anna Buffet+Copper: I use this stuff every night, no fail and I love it. It has a beautiful, silky feel and gives my skin glowy, firm and smooth.

ST says: I’ve been using for a few weeks buffet + cu with matrixyl in the PM and the results are already evident, smooth skin, fleshed out, plump ☺️
TEF says: Definitely a 5 out of 5! If I could give it a 10 I would. Not only does it help with lines, wrinkles, texture irregularities and dehydration. . .it also helps to repair the skin. My dark spots and broken skin from acne heals so much faster. My skin is healthier and looks younger. There’s nothing I dislike about Buffet+Cu. I know Buffet+Cu isn’t an active or acid but I still suggest introducing it slowly into your routine.
SA says: I would rate 5/5.. it just made my skin so soft , clear and plump.. with just 1 week into using it people have started to notice difference in my skin.. I use it in AM and PM and all over my face including over and under eyes.. simply love 💖
MM says: 5/5 My skin was already in a very good state, with a well-established skincare routine when I started using it.
And yet, after a few days of use, I noticed that I couldn’t feel the bit of tightness I felt after cleansing. My skin was deeply moisturized.
My advise to other users? Buy it. Yesterday. You need this, but you just don’t know it yet.
KP says: 5 of 5! It has helped my skin tremendously and my lines are less visible than ever, its my holy grail for sure.
It might be a bit tacky but nothing the moisturizer won’t change.
Some of the negative reviews
LSH says: 2/5 want to love this product because of the ingredients and it’s a cheaper alternative to NIOD but seems like every time I start using I get blackheads
LL says: 0/5 I had no problems arise with Buffet + Copper but I used it for over a month and it did nothing for my skin.
DD says: I broke out from this. I also know my 2 sisters broke out as well from this. Big cystic acne under the skin. I currently use no actives and just toners, essence, FECC , volufiline cerave cleanser eye cream and PM moisturizer
