The Ordinary "Buffet" 60ml is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Emily6 from Be patient if you break out! I bought this to use in the morning with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid and in the evening with The Ordinary Granative Retinoid 5% in Squalane and Rose Hip Seed Oil. I immediately broke out using the "Buffet", with small red bumps all over my forehead and smile lines. I also found it really sticky combined with the Hyaluronic Acid, but given I was stuck at home in lockdown I stuck it out and within a week the redness went away as well as the stickiness, and my skin is now smooth and healthy looking. I love this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Olga42 from Not for the thin-skinned Having emailed The Ordinary directly, I got tired of waiting for the reply and figured I couldn’t go too wrong by following the advice for general signs of ageing, as found on their website. As it turned out, I did get it wrong. I have normal (non-sensitive) olive skin, no blemishes or wrinkles, just a slightly dull post-winter complexion, which basically needed livening up. BUFFET seemed like a logical solution, so I started using it, exactly as it said on the bottle. A few days later, my daughter asked why my face was so red, and when I looked in the mirror, my cheeks were covered in broken capillaries, which was something I had never experienced before. So I immediately stopped using Buffet, and my face is back to normal again. One star goes to branding, btw. Got to give them that.
