Most Helpful Positive Review Sun spots be gone!
I use this product, 2 drops, morning and night first in my routine. I follow that up with 2 drops of TO hyaluronic acid, followed up with my trusted Ponds cream. I do allow each item to dry, at least partially, prior to adding the next item. My husband is the one who noticed the sun spots around my jaw are completely gone. The worst spot I have is on my left cheek and it is so faint that it can barely be seen. I've been using this item since about Feb 1, 2 x's/day faithfully. I've even taken it when I travel so as not to interrupt my progress. I'm completely obsessed with this item and will never not have it again. When I repurchase this item again I may try to use it with a retinol instead of the hyaluronic acid and see what happens.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not too sure what to really think of it, mixed feelings
I know it can take skincare products a month or more too see great results if any and honestly ive been using this for a week and a half and I'm not seeing a tad bit of difference or any noticeable change. If anything, I'm seeing worse. Before I used this I had nothing stand different. Well with only using this a week close to two weeks i noticed mild puffiness from under my left eye from the corner of my nose on down a bit. It's really strange looking lol I don't know how else to explain it but that. I never seen it before. But It is noticeable. But nothing like this on my right side. I haven't used anything different other than a hydrating serum along with it nightly. I don't use it in the morning. So far for almost going on two weeks I'm not seeing anything that wows me nor at least a tiny bit of a difference. So I'm going to hold off using this and switch to The Ordinary Retinol instead. Because I'm not sure if I want to continuing using by the looks of that (puff like look) makes me look older and I'm 35 for the price tag of this brand its a meh for me
Reviewed by 63 customers Stung my skin
Anna from SLC, UT
I used this as recommended on the packaging and did not mix it with any other acids or exfoliants in my routine. However, every application stung my cheeks and increased sensitivity to my other products. I may be allergic or this may just be too aggressive for my skin, but I have discontinued any use of this project.
Visible results quickly
Broget from WA, USA
This is a very reasonable price for this ingredient list, and it made a visible difference (particularly around my eyes) within the first week. I imagine if I were to continue using it I'd be very pleased!
I deducted a star because it broke me out, *however* all of The Ordinary products do so it's really my skin's issue - if you've otherwise had success with their line of skincare, this is worth your time!
Switching back the the regular buffet
Appy from Somewhere over the rainbow
I switched it up and purchased this version once I ran out of the standard buffet because so many people claim it's better. Tbh I haven't noticed any difference between the two at all, but the addition of the copper makes it far more expensive and counteract with retinols so I can't use it in the pm. I'll be saving the money and switching back to the standard buffet once I run out of this product.
My skin looks like younger, the best product by the ordinary
Flavia from Windermere
I use this everyday in the morning and night
I had results great!
JKay from Chicago
At first I didn't like this serum but after a few weeks I couldn't deny the results! My skin felt firmer which is what the copper peptides do. My face feels better than with the regular TO buffet and I will be buying this one again! It's still cost effective in comparison to other Copper Peptide products. If you're concerned about firmness this product is for you!
This replaced my high end dermatologist serum
Heather from Olathe Kansas
I use this product several times a week. I use a retinol some nights so I don't use this at the same time. The copper peptides are a no no with retinol. I cant say enough about this product line. This one here is the mecca
I love most of the Ordinary products.
Didi from Townsend TN
I think this is better than the one without copper. I love it. Keeps my skin hydrated and smooth.
Not pleasant to use
Kristen from Washington, D.C.
This definitely smells strongly like vinegar and isn't very pleasant to use (also foams slightly, which is a common Ordinary formulation trait). Maybe copper peptides aren't for me, but I found this made my skin more irritated.
Ray from Tampa, FL
I have tried an array of TO products and I have to say, this one takes the cake. I am a loyal customer and I routinely use their stuff, namely Buffet, but this upgrade with copper peptides is certainly noticeable if you are attune to your skin. I think the copper adds a level of suppleness and smoothing of lines. Between this in the AM, and the Retinol 0.5% in Squalene at night, I truly love my skin.
This was a Big No for me
Shelly from Michigan
I love the ordinary products and had tried The Buffet. Was anxious to use this one but after one week I have cystic acne. I'm mid 50's and have not had a breakout in years. Sadly I won't use again and will have to wait for my skin to clear.
Hannah from MN
I had been looking for a nightly serum for awhile. I did my research and bought this product and I'm not going back to any of the other serums I had been struggling with. The price is right and I noticed a visible improvement after one use. I use it every other night and it's helped improve my fine lines, acne scars, hormonal acne, and left me with glowing skin. I highly recommend this product!
I would buy this again
Julie from SF
I use this morning and night. It has plumped up my fine lines and hydrated my dry skin.
No Difference Between Buffet
I don't know from California
I decided to try this and compare it to Buffet because it's more expensive, so I was wondering if it would work better. I noticed little to no difference between this and Buffet with my skin. I'm not a dermatologist or anything, but I'd say buying Buffet is the better choice because it's less money.
Works well, but not daily
Cup of water from California
Skin felt supple just after a few uses. But I learned the hard way that it shouldn't be used daily like instructed, I started getting some reaction on my skin, luckily it went back to normal immediately after stopping, then I switched to Once every few days and it's been amazing.
You may have acne issues with this
Reviewing from Texas
The PH of this product is 6-7 which is too high for the skin's ideal ph and can cause breakouts. Sad
Nan from Los Angeles
This stuff is seriously amazing! I had been using Mario Badescu Peptide Renewal Serum for two years before this, there was a noticeable difference in my skin every time I stopped using it. The Copper in this seems to be a real miracle worker, fine lines were soothed in about a week. Two years ago I hit my goal weight after losing 80lbs, it left my eyes a little droopy and excess skin under my jawline. No amount of retinol/serums/dry brushing improved this. One month using this, and my skin is all plumped up again, you can hardly see any excess skin under my chin. Truly amazing and unexpected results!
Love copper peptides and the price
Mariam from Michigan
Other brands that have this unique copper peptide ingredient are so expensive! The natural blue color is so enticing but what it does for your skin is even more worth the mention. I know this is one of the ordinary's more expensive products but it is also one of their more quality products. Coupled with the buffet of anti aging ingredients and it could be one of the most perfect products I've ever come across for healthy skin. Takes the place of two-three other serums I was circulating. My skin is absolutely beautiful after using this and feels amazing. You don't need to use this at the same time as other harsher ingredients like ahas/bhas and vitamin C/Vitamin A/Retinol because it does a great job all on its own and is a potent cocktail so introduce it slowly but can be worked up to use everyday.
Ken from Los Angeles, CA
I appreciate the anti-aging ingredients in this serum, and I especially appreciate the copper peptides because I think that is a new era of anti-aging... but I will advise to slowly introduce this! It may be a little strong if you use a daily BHA product. But I have seen such a significant reduction in my fine lines, especially smile lines and forehead, and my overall skin health is significantly improved!
Love this product
Emily19 from Chattanooga, TN
I have combination skin alittle on the dry side and this has helped my tone and texturial issues so much. I used the original buffet serum for a month but didn't notice as much of a difference as I did with this product. It does smell like apple cider vinegar but the results are definitely worth the smell and price.
I will not buy this again.
pillie from Wisconsin
I had high hopes for this product, but it left my skin feeling sticky...and before you ask, I used it sparingly. I am thinking it doesn't agree with my skin. I'm female, 50 y/o with combination skin.
Amy from Ohio
I have been using the buffet, but decided to try buffet with copper peptides with my current order. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I definitely prefer it to the regular buffet.
Part of my routine!
Smarie from Wisconsin
I have been loving this since I included it in my daily routine. I use it at night and it helps to wake up with smooth skin. I do feel like I see a difference in my fine lines and wrinkles, especially on my forehead and frown lines. The blue color is gorgeous!
Em from Phoenix
I noticed a difference within a few weeks. I will definitely buy again.
Very lux..tightens up my under eye too
Trixie from Berkeley Co WV
I apply to my clean face twice a day. It feels fresh. It makes me fee Good about myself
Love it love it love it!
Mmmm from NC
Great for over -30. skin. The copper in the solution gives it a beautiful color and your skin will feel soft and well cared for.
