”I’ve been using this product since about late April. (It’s now mid October.) I use it mainly as a hydrator; I have sensitive, combination skin that gets super oily. I need a good moisturizer, especially in the colder months, but can’t use heavy creams because they make my skin greasy and clog my large pores. I tried a popular skincare brand for over a year, but never found a moisturizer that worked for me; they were either way too thick or not moisturizing enough, and even the thick ones still left my skin feeling dehydrated, I think because they weren’t really penetrating the surface. Then I tried Buffet and this is IT! I use it morning and night after cleansing, applying 3 drops to my face and neck. It has a slippery feel and spreads very easily if you’re using enough, but after just a few minutes, it completely sinks in and doesn’t leave any oily or sticky residue. My skin looks radiant and not greasy, which is such a blessing. Even better is the way my skin feels- hydrated, comfortable, and like I’m not wearing anything. (I wish I’d had this 2 years ago when I was going through horrendous breakouts and rashes and couldn’t figure out why. Spoiler: it was DAIRY.) I can use this under makeup with no issues; I usually just use a mineral spf moisturizer under makeup, but if I feel dehydrated, or am wearing a very matte (drying) foundation, I’ll use a little Buffet in the areas where I feel most dry. Sometimes I get little flakes on my forehead near my hairline, but if I use a drop of Buffet before makeup, no flakes. I have tried the Hyalauronic Acid product but did not like the texture which is thicker and much stickier than Buffet. I will keep using Buffet over anything else because it works great for hydration and has extra ingredients which are supposed to be good for skin. I can’t really speak to any anti-aging effects; that’s not why I use this product, but it certainly can’t hurt. ;) My skin feels soft and comfortable, and to me that is well worth the price. I’ve gone through I think three bottles, and just ordered two more. I love this product!”

”Bought this for my mother to get her started on an actual skincare routine. She’s never really taken care of her skin before and needed something to soften her wrinkles, slow the forming of new ones, and just overall give her skin a boost. She’s been using it day and night for about two weeks. The skin on her face and neck is softer, wrinkles look less harsh, and her redness has diminished significantly! She hasn’t had any issues with smell, texture, or anything. Really hoping to see continued progress.”
”To note : It did slightly burn her neck the first few days, caused itching and redness, but that’s gone away. It does leave a slight tacky feeling and some shine (on my oily skin)…but it’s fine for her dry skin, soaks right up. If you have oily skin, be sure this is early in your skincare.”

The Ordinary has better products

I used this twice a day coupled with hyaluronic acid. This is good for those who are not targeting a specific skin problem. It’s a good serum but i see more results from the other the ordinary products. I finished my bottle and it definitely completed my skin care routine but I’m in no hurry to buy another. Will try other the ordinary products first!

Didn't see a difference in my face

Was gifted this by a friend so tried it out, with no expectations on the effects on my skin. Used it for a few weeks and didn't really see a difference in my skin. I read reviews that said it helps with anti-aging, but I am still pretty young so I did not really see anti-aging effects. I started breaking out so I stopped using this for a while, not sure if this is what caused my break out. It is also quite tacky after application, but absorbs quickly. 3 drops is enough for the whole face

I like this!

Not new to The Ordinary product. But I really find the Buffet a great serum for me. I usually use this in the morning after my toner. It kept my skin at bay, without feeling oily and such. What I also like about this is that it absorbs quickly and does not feel sticky after application. This is a must buy for me.

The smoothest my skin has ever been!!

Wow, I almost can’t believe this product is real for the price point and how true it is to it’s claims. I bought this to try to get a start at my anti-aging routine as every woman approaching 25, and wow, I’m glad I took the right first step with this. I use this both in the morning and night, only needing 2-3 drops to generously cover my face and neck. It starts off as sticky for awhile but dries down well with your face feeling instantly plumper and moisturized. It doesn’t have much of a smell, which I really like, so it doesn’t mix with all the scents of your skin care routine. I wish they sold this in bigger bottles because I am absolutely in love with this. Almost week 2 in my skin care routine and the results are immediate, noticeable without the stickiness -which is a really big deal for Philippine climate-. No blackheads, whiteheads or any breakouts whatsoever, and it feels gentle to the skin. Love this! Highly recommend it and worth buying in bulk seeing how fast it sells.

Staple anti-aging serum

I'm on my third bottle of this. I use it as my anti-aging serum at night only. I use about 3 drops for my face, and 2 for my neck. Truthfully, I haven't noticed any improvements to my skin or reversal of any signs of aging. I use this more as a preventive measure, to round out my anti-aging focused skin care routine. It's a bit pricey, but it features a lot of research-based ingredients in a simple, no frills serum. I will probably continue to buy this until I find a less expensive alternative.

Holy grail

I love this product! It’s easily absorbed by the skin and my skin feels so soft in the morning. I use this AM and PM after cleansing my face with a toner. It also works well with other The Ordinary products. I recommend this serum and it’s definitely worth your money.
