The Ordinary"Buffet", £14.3
What’s the hype? Interestingly, this was a slow burner when it first launched as ‘Buffet’ is more expensive than the other serums. This is due to its more complex formula.

The OrdinaryVitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%, £6
What’s the hype? Research has shown that 23% is the highest amount of vitamin C our skin can absorb and utilise. Usually this type of product would set you back a lot more than £4.90. When this formula is in stock, we highly recommend buying two without delay.
