The Ordinary product line has brought a revolution to the cosmetics market. Efficient, simply designed products with prominent main active ingredients on the packaging and business policy of not investing in marketing have made the prices of their products affordable. In this way, they shook the beauty market and provided users with quality and affordable care.
The Ordinary “Buffet” serum with peptides, according to the manufacturer, reduces the signs of aging, acts on small skin imperfections, reduces wrinkles, and hydrates the skin.
Serum “Buffet” contains several types of peptides that we know have the ability to penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen building and fill wrinkles and firm the skin. Partial proteolysis (degradation) of extracellular matrix proteins produces matrix peptides that regulate cellular activities through cellular signaling. For example, the breakdown of collagen produces matrices that “send” signals to fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Collagen is essential for the wound healing process and is also responsible for skin firmness and tone. Without matrices and other peptides, the skin loses firmness, which over time results in the formation of wrinkles and relaxation of facial contours.
Because matrices stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and other extracellular matrix macromolecules, companies have synthesized peptides that mimic these effects. Many brands, including The Ordinary, include these synthetic peptides in their products to ensure anti-aging effects.
Peptides are one of the most common ingredients in anti-aging products and are found in almost everyone today. In this serum, 25% of the composition is a combination of different types of peptides. In addition to peptides, they contain glycerin, probiotics, hyaluronic acid, amino acids, soothing allantoin, and urea, which hydrates and retains moisture.

It does not contain fragrances, silicone, essential oils, and alcohol. The company does not test on animals and the products do not contain ingredients of animal origin.
It is applied to cleansed skin in the morning and evening before the cream. It is lighter and has a less sticky texture than its 2% HA + B5 hyaluronic serum. It is instantly absorbed into the skin, leaving no sticky film. Just a few drops of the product are enough to apply it all over the face. It provides hydration to the skin and in combination with The Ordinary lettuce oil that I used in the evening, it works great, as well as in the morning after cleansing, and before moisturizer.
The recommendation from The Ordinary is not to use it together in the care routine with L-ascorbic and ethyl-ascorbic acid.
“Buffet” serum will add moisture to the skin, it will not “choke” it, which, like all The Ordinary products, is affordable. Although, I think it is among their more expensive products, if not the most expensive. Incomparably more suitable for my facial skin than The Ordinary 2% HA + B5 hyaluronic serum. I’m definitely buying “Buffet” again.
