Has anyone tried both ?
Which one gives the best results?
There is a huge difference in price.
Thanks in advance.

Well they both get good reviews.

Dh is buying me the buffet with copper for my birthday as it’s ££.

When looking at the price bear in mind the difference in size. Boots 15ml, The Ordinary 30ml. Like a pp I'll be trying this next

I was looking at the price of boots serums, what the fuck?.

Yes the price is shockshockshock
That's why I was asking - if Buffet is as good or better I'll use it rather than the Boots one. But if the Boots one really does help decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles I'll try it.

I have used both.

The Boots has a better effect,IMO, but is very silicony, so the effect is great, instantaneous, but dries out skin and ultimately makes foundation etc "bobble". I use it every so often for a real smoothing effect.

The Buffet, IMO, is foul. Slimy texture (like many Ordinary products) just felt like slimy water on my skin and did nothing- and I finished a whole bottle.

I don't rate anything by the Ordinary tbh. I used Buffet/Hyaluronic/Retinoid/Vit C. I won't repurchase any and actually threw the Vit C away it was so hideous! Some people swear by it though, I guess it's what suits us as individuals!

(serums I love and repeat purchase are Nip/Fab Dragons' Blood and Nip/Fab No Needle Fix)
