LOVE LOVE LOVE!! This is everything I wanted their copper isolate serum to be (see my review of that one. spoiler alert: I gave it 1 lippie) at a fraction of the cost. I have VERY sensitive acne-prone skin, so finding hydrating products that would work without wrecking havoc is a nightmare. This however is a godsend! I work in an office with very dry air, and my skin would always get tight and slightly irritated within an hour of my arrival to work. It would also get sort of crapey if you looked really close. This stuff saved it! My skin has never been smoother, and even in this awfully dry air it's plump and comfortable. Which is remarkable considering how thin and quickly absorbing this is. I use it during the day, and sometimes at bedtime if my skin is extra dry, as the first serum. It's just wonderful, I hope they never ever ever reformulate or discontinue it. The packaging is a bit annoying, but I suppose it makes sense given how runny the liquid is. Already repurchased with a backup bottle.

Got this in the mail today and after reading all the good reviews I immediately wanted to try it out. I should have listened to the advise on the packaging and try it on a small area first to see how my skin would react. After washing it of my face my skin felt great. However, after 15 minutes some rash appeared on my cheeks which made them look even redder than they did with the solution on them. Fortunately the rash didn't appear on my forehead and chin (which are my greasier areas), so I am going to continue using the solution on those areas once or twice a week and maybe 5 minutes instead of 10, because despite the rash the product seems great! My skin seems smoother and feels incredibly soft.So I still believe that the product can do something great for your skin, just be VERY CAREFUL with sensitive/ dry skin. My skin usually doesn't react as bad as it did to this product. You'd better don't take a risk and do as the package says: just try a little bit on a small area of your face to see how it reacts.

A great option gentler than the more active ones, yet delivering great long term results. I mix it with arbutin pm and in the am with niacinamide. These three together are the bomb against pigmentation and uneven tone.

For reference I have oily combination skin with acne scar and very few active acne at the moment. I have really been enjoying this primer! I'll admit I was skeptical about The Ordinary due to its low price point but I was really impressed with both the primer and the high coverage foundation (see my review on those). The packaging is light and sleek and travel friendly. You only need the tiniest amount for your entire face. It glides on like silk and has a thinner consistency then some of the silicone based primers I owned in the past. Of course this is not a miracle primer but it really helps giving your face a smooth base and help blurring out the pores. I'm sure it also helps with the longevity of the makeup but most of my foundations are fuller coverage and longer lasting anyway so I have no way to be sure of that. Very impressed over all. I would definitely repurchase.

I've tried three of The Ordinary's vitamin C products. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F is the one my skin tolerates best. Vitamin F refers to fatty acids in the formula. This product feels oily, so it is moisturizing and nourishing. It's a lot more gentle on my skin than Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone, which made my foundation look great but wouldn't stop tingling for hours. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% was less intense, and it comes in a tube like Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone, but I still felt some tingling from that one as well. Of course, my skin is very sensitive. I enjoy Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F as part of my skin care routine, especially when my skin is dry. It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper, like most of The Ordinary's offerings. I know some acne-prone people avoid coconut, and this product contains coconut alkanes, but I personally haven't experienced any adverse effects from it. In fact, of the three vitamin C products I mentioned, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F is the only one I would consider repurchasing. Ingredients: Coconut Alkanes, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Ethyl Linoleate, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Squalane.

I've never tried pure rose hip oil before, so I don't have much to compare it to quality wise. But either way it's been doing a great job keeping my skin in check during this winter. I don't use it every night, but perhaps 3-4 times a week, and always after using more drying products. It's pretty emollient and doesn't sink right in, but I'm okay with that since I only use it at night time. The scent that some people are complaining about I think is just the typical natural oil scent. You get over it. It's very affordable, and the packaging is good. The dropper works well, too, which in my experience isn't always the case when it's a cheaper product. I can definitely see myself repurchasing this at some point, even if I would like to try a rose hip oil from another brand to be able to compare the quality. For now, I'm satisfied with my purchase.+ Cruelty free+ Cold pressed and pure oil+ Inexpensive+ Good packaging

I love, love, love this product! I have combination skin with a pretty oily t-zone, redness, and slight discoloration. This product has made a big difference in only a short amount of time already. I use it in the morning in combination with The Ordinary's caffeine product and my face looks bright and fresh. This product doesn't dry my face out but rather keeps it looking fresh and not oily throughout the day. It feels lightweight and wonderful. A little definitely goes a long way, too, which is nice, but that hardly matters at this price point; it doesn't set you back to stock up if you need to. The only skin care regimen I had before was using Nivea religiously in the morning and before bed, so that might be why I've noticed such a big difference already since I hadn't been using anything before this to help with my ruddy complexion. I absolutely love it.

I really wanted to like this, but it just sat on the skin, ended up cakey, breaking apart, & didn't last. Im really disappointed. The color match was good though.

For reference my skin tone is NC30-35 with strong yellow undertone. Oily combination skin with acne scar but no active or cystic acne at the moment. I have been really enjoying this foundation. For the shade to work for me I ordered both 2.0YG and 2.1Y and mix 1.5 pumps of 2.0YG with 0.5 pump of 2.1Y. The coverage is not as full as they intend to but I would say it has a good medium to full coverage. I'm not sure if it's that buildable because this does require more time to set comparing to my others. It blends nicely and stays all day. Granted I have yet tried this in the summer when I'm perpetually drenched in sweat but I do have high hopes for it. It doesn't do much for oil control but nor it claims to be. With some minimal blotting my face looks fresh again. I also really love the price (who doesn't) and the simple and no frills packaging. It comes with a pump with a lock and that's even better for traveling. The shade range for this is actual,y quite good. The only gripe I have about this is there is quite a big jump between the two seemingly very close shades I purchased. 2.0YG was pretty true to the description with a strong yellow golden tone but 2.1Y all so a sudden seems at least 3 shades darker and very orange. Hopefully they will improve on that. Overall very amazed and glad I ordered it and already ordered backups for this. Will recommend.

I've been using this for months now and this makes a noticeable difference in the overall tone and texture of my skin. My skin looks brighter and smoother with few breakouts. I had a small initial purge around my chin for a few days but none of the dryness, peeling or irritation that usually comes with regular retinol. I use this before bed after the glycolic toner and before their moisturizer. I've gotten lazy and skipped this for a week and my skin looks dull and gets congested, especially around the chin. The brand is pretty forthcoming about the need to avoid sun exposure when using this so a good sunscreen is a must. I love that this is so effective and affordable. I've used lesser quality drugstore products that cost more.*This review is for the formulation in squalane not the emulsion. While the squalane formula can feel a little heavier and takes a bit longer to absorb it doesn't contain glycerine which can cause me to break out .

I've bought a ton of skincare products from The Ordinary line over the past 6 months, and this is one of the ones that has underwhelmed me. Unlike some of the other reviewers, it didn't make me breakout or give me weird reactions. I don't particularly care about the stickiness since I apply it before bed. I just haven't really noticed a significant difference in my skin from using it. Another reviewer said this serum is really meant for aging skin, and while I'm in my thirties now I might not be there yet. So I'm not gonna knock this product outright.There is one place where I have noticed improvement from this product: my lips. I don't know why I thought to rub it into my lips, but one night when I applied it I happened it just smear it all over, onto my lips, followed by my usual thick layer of Lansinoh. Then I went to bed.The next morning I noticed my lips felt and looked so plump and hydrated and healthy. I'm still using the Buffet serum on my face once or twice a week simply because I don't have any reason not to, but *every* night I've been applying it to my lips even when I'm using other treatments or serums.Anyways, I still don't find it groundbreaking enough to repurchase just to use on my lips, but I wanted to share a nice way to make some use of the serum for those of you who aren't outright reacting negatively to it, but also don't really think it's helping: try it on your lips. Obviously though don't eat or drink anything after applying it. Since it's not marketed as a lip treatment it's probably wise to do what you can to avoid ingesting it.

Definitely worth the price. Use this with MMHC and skin is smooth and glowing.
on 2/7/2018 8:32:00 PM
I don't see amazing results but vaguely feel like it does make my skin feel more resilient. Works a lot better with MMHC on top. Otherwise sometimes get spots or slightly irritated skin when I use too often. Go slow -- don't jump into the twice a day schedule in the instructions.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
