This product is a dud for me. I wanted to try the brand as I have read many good reviews. Sadly, the Buffet did nothing to hydrate my skin after several weeks use, and in fact I got breakouts where I don't normally (forehead). There are a few hidden offenders, like Xanthan Gum and PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil in here, but one of the worst ingredients as far as comedogenicity goes is the Sodium Chloride, which is often laced with iodine, which usually results in inflamed lesions.
I will not repurchase this product, and I will have to carefully consider purchasing any other products by The Ordinary (Deciem Brand).

My best friend has been raving about this product for months and at the price point I thought I'd give it a try. I only used it for the first time last night and I woke up with amazingly refreshed skin. What really surprised me was when I put it on in the AM it acted as the BEST primer for my makeup EVER! The tackyness mixed with the hydration just sets the most perfect base for any foundation or concealer. I just found a two in one product and I won't buy another primer again!! Gotta stock up now!!
