The Ordinary Buffet
Quick Look At Buffet
- Buffet targets multiple signs of ageing and firming.
- Use morning and evening
- Conflicts include; The Direct Acids and products with pure vitamin c which means the Ethylated Ascorbic Acid (ELAA) and the L-Ascorbic Acid (LAA).
Buffet can be found under “Peptides” on the Deciem Website and you can read reviews on Buffet here. It´s a great product to use for overall skin health targeting multiple signs of ageing and firming.
It´s a water based product so you would use it as one of the very first layers in your skincare routine. Apply a few drops to cleansed skin making sure it´s fully absorbed before applying your Hyaluronic Acid (if you’re following this routine).
Buffet does conflict with other products because it is a Peptide and shouldn’t be used in the same routine as The Ordinary direct acids or with pure vitamin c products; Ethylated Ascorbic Acid (ELAA) or L´Ascorbic Acid (LAA). If you are using any of these conflicting products, then you could use Buffet in the morning and the conflicting products in the evening. You can read more about The Ordinary Conflicts here.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a great product for hydration and general skin health. It´s a water based product so you use as your first layer or in this case after Buffet.

- It´s best used in the evening only.
- Conflicts with other products that contain retinol / retinoid.
Retinoid targets signs of ageing and textural irregularities. You would use this in the evening only . It´s a anhydrous solution therefore you would apply after water based products (if using) and before any creams or oils.

Retinols and Retinoids shouldn’t be used in the same routine as other products that contain retinol or retinoids.
The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil
Quick look at Rose Hip Seed Oil
- Targets dehydration, dullness and signs of ageing
- This is best used in the PM only
- No conflicts
Rose Hip Seed Oil is best used in the evening. It´s a fabulous oil which targets dehydration, dullness and signs of ageing. Once you have applied your other serums, add a few drops of Rose Hip Seed Oil all over your face and leave as your last step or just before a heavy moisturiser if using.
If you are new to The Ordinary and skincare, I highly recommend starting with a set regimen or asking Deciem for a personalised regimen. You will money, time and a lot of stress. You can find lots more Deciem regimens here and also the How To Layer The Ordinary Guide.
