For those who have seen the chart about the possible interactions, I applaud you for stepping up your game when it comes to skincare :) Not many actives you can pair with this theoretically, but you may use Copper peptides with alpha arbutin and niacinamide. This combination works as an amazing pigment inhibitor and smooths out your skin tone. Which makes it convenient for post-procedure routines (after microneedling, peels, exfoliation) I've been using this copper peptide serum after my chemical peels and I believe it has helped with the depth of my shallow acne scars that I had for years. It's blueish in color but it won't tint your skin a weird color.
I've had great results with using this with retinoids as well. My acne scars are hardly detectable now (I'm referring to the texture, not just the discoloration!). Copper peptides are soo underrated. For the price point I think it's worth it.
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
Love this serum ! from Frisco
I CANNOT say enough good things about this serum! I tried ordinary prior to menopause and my skin was way too sensitive bc I had major acne problems - so I had to just focus on dermatologist creams . But I used this (the one they had created before this blue one) and it was the only one that my skin could tolerate . Fast forward to post menopause .. I can tolerate most of their serums and acids (if make sure I read directions) anyways I use this every morning bc I use their retinoid product at night . And it's amazing I do notice a difference- skin lighter and plumper .

I can definitely tell a difference in my fine lines and wrinkles. They are less noticeable.

This is a great product to use if you can get over the stench of pennies.
Big fan with disappointment from Beaumont CA
I love love THE ORDINARY products! I purchased it when I had coupon at Ulta. Didn't start to use it until a few months later. I had allergy reaction afterwards. Stopped a few weeks went back tried it again, this time my allergy was worse. Unfortunately this particular product didn't work on me.
The MOST in important reminder I would like to tell everyone before purchase The Ordinary at Ulta Beauty is that Ulta do NOT offer satisfaction guarantee like DECIEM!! On DECIEM is clearly stated that if customer not satisfied with the product within 365 days(a year) it can be return. If you are trying any products and hoping it will work on you then Ulta might not the best place to purchase from. Their policy timing is far too short.

I can only use this stuff at night after my proactive routine because it makes my chin area break out for some reason. But, this stuff makes such a visible difference in my uneven skin tone and first signs of aging (I'm 30), I am not willing to quit using it! I don't know if it's the placebo effect but I seem to get carded more lately and someone at my college said I looked "maybe 21"! I was so happy lol

My wrinkles "appear" to go away with "Buffet". Not sure the extra Peptide make a difference.

Had to be gone for a few days. Took a sample kit (Initials D.E.) to save space . One day home using my favorites from The Ordinary and the difference was clear. Will never cheat on The Ordinary again.

I had mask acne on my neck and around my face I also had acne around my hair line from sweating it lasted about 4 months and I couldn't find anything to get rid of these bumps that hurt and this product cleared me up in 2 weeks. I love this and will be repurchasing. Couldn't go wrong with this!
Jenn from Washington
Just finished this bottle and I can honestly say I didn't see any difference. I have combo/dry skin in my late 20s. Maybe better suited for more mature skin, but really it just acted as a humectant before layering on moisturizer. The blue color is fun and it smells like pennys, but I had way more rapid results with retinol and acids a few times than this for a few months.
Strategic part of my skin ritual. Pat on clean skin. Pat, don't rub other serums, oils, or creams or you will get pilling. Once everything "sinks in" it isn't a problem. Give a bit of time before applying foundations. I do my brows and eyes first that seems to give plenty time.

I use this twice a day in my Ordinary Routine. I am 63 and it's closing pores and making my skin fully hydrated. Love it's application and the way it preps my skin for make-up. I used Matrixyl by Ordinary already so I was anxious to try with Copper Peptides. The product is worth the additional price and I will purchase again.
Mare from North Carolina
This is the latest Ordinary product I tried and like all the others, it delivers. Their serums are super hydrating with no oiliness. They all have minimal ingredients and cannot be better priced.

I use am and pm

I tried this on the recommendation of a 'mature skin' You tube channel. I used it the night I bought it and awoke to the smoothest facial skin I have ever had. The only downside is that it's a little harsh on areas where my facial skin is thinning (mostly on my hairline). I can only use it a couple times a week. But that means it lasts longer. I love it!

I got this because I watched an esthetician on social recommending copper peptides for breakouts and clogged it pores. This was the cheapest one I found. The smell is very penetrating that's why I'm knocking down 1 star. However this is a 10/10 on performance! My pores shrunk. Fine lines disappeared. Texture was reduced. I didn't break out like other people mentioned. I used it every other night for the first week so my skin could adjust. My routine includes a micro-exfoliating cleanser (day and night) and vitamin c serum (daytime) so I only use this at night. I don't use retinol when using this product. I have sensitive skin so I don't over do it.
Flajen from Nashville
I received this for Christmas not knowing anything about this line. I was pretty apprehensive as most skin care doesn't really work. I so love this that I plan on buying more from this line. I can see a huge difference in redness, blemishes & fine lines. It's now one of my favorites!
Haven from Florida
I love The Ordinary line, and this serum is my favorite! I like the original Buffet, but this one is even better! This serum makes my skin glow, while smoothing and hydrating. I have oily/combination skin and in the warmer months I don't even need to use a moisturizer over it. I use the Buffet with Cooper Peptides along with The Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week (but do not use Buffet immediately after the peel) for a winning combination that doesn't break the bank!
Momma Chol from Lakeville MN
I use the regular buffet & love it. Was advised the one shown above would be great for firming. Appears to be too strong for my skin type?
