Advice please oh wise Style and Beauty Mumsnetters.
Should I buy The Ordinary Buffet or Matrixyl ?

Do you need to use moisturiser with them ?
I have ageing sensitive skin.

I use Buffet and use moisturiser and then spf on top.

There is a FB group, but it's hardcore.

Thank you.
I've never had spots or acne.
My skin is dryish

I use Buffet and find it a bit drying in patches in my dry-prone skin, so you might need a thicker moisturiser

I went to The Ordinary shop in Covent Garden yesterday. I was inappropriately excited.

Buffet is brilliant.
I have almost every product they do.
I get mine from Asos as free next day delivery.

I've used both but apart from moisturising didn't find either wowing.

I'm coming to the end of the matrixyl I ordered in November and I'm a bit underwhelmed by it. It was no miracle product for me despite regular use.

Just started using Matryxil and really like it so far. Skin looks fresher and plumper and even OH has noticed and commented. Great product for the price. I use it with the Clarins Double Serum

I’m not getting on with matrixyl,

Oops...
I actually prefer the hyaluronic acid, it’s also a bit more moisturising. OP, both buffet and matrixyl are serums, you don’t need both really. I don’t need a moisturiser but I’m pretty oily.
