  • We hone in on one of cult brand The Ordinary's best products...

    Affordable brand The Ordinary came to the UK relatively recently, but already it’s kicked up a storm in terms of cult following – probably because it offers a no-nonsense, affordable approach to skincare.

    The capsule line of skincare products (think serums, acid toners and face oils) puts exactly what’s in the bottle on the label, so you can source your products based on the element you’re looking for.

    But, if you’re not much of an expert in terms of specific skincare ingredients, terms like niacinamide and hyaluronic acid may boggle your mind a bit, so allow us to hone in on one of the brand’s best and most beneficial products: The Buffet Peptide Serum.

    At just under £13, this is the range’s most expensive product, but still clocks in far cheaper than the majority of higher end brands. So what makes it so great?

    Peptides naturally occur in our skin, helping it carry out all of its functions. More peptides = skin that works even more efficiently, which is good news as this product is packed full of ’em.

    The serum also contains 11 different amino acids, which work to plump and firm the skin, making it a great anti-ageing beauty product. Allow it to soak in completely before following up with a moisturiser, then admire your significantly softer and more even complexion.

    So popular is this wonder serum though that it’s often out of stock, so you’d better nab it quick while it’s still available if you want to try it for yourself. Read more about the best products by The Ordinary on our Fabled store.
