When Ordinary Sets The Bar
I'm trying not to use the word "aesthetic" but these serums are aesthetic AF. From the matte glass bottles to the simple label to the bottles having no instructions at all- I loved it all at first glance. The best part of this line is the price! I think the most expensive one clocks in at just under $16. I got a couple of these, but the one that everyone needs to have in their arsenal is the Buffet serum ($14.80, 3mL) . The website has tons of information and is littered with percent signs- that's usually my cue to stop reading. If someone can tell me the scientific term for fairy magic, I'm sure it's in the list of ingredients.
Short of laser therapy, I never thought that anything else would work on my large pores and textured skin. I blame the benzoyl peroxide I slathered on my face in my late teens, only to find out minutes after that I was highly allergic to it. (Many people are, so BP is worth the spot test!) My skin was never the same. Fortunately, my skin met Buffet and my skin was never the same..again.
The biggest difference I've noticed after three weeks of somewhat regular use, is the texture on my cheeks. I used to be able to see all the bumps if the sun hit my skin the right way, but either the sun has never hit my skin again that way or the bumps are just gone. I've also noticed that the shininess in my t-zone has also disappeared! It's almost as if my skin has started producing its own shine control. I've found myself dabbing on some bb cream (out of habit, really) and not sure where to put it on my face! My blackheads have also become less noticeable and my nose has less texture.
If you've never tried a serum and are looking to incorporate something simple, effective, and inexpensive, give this a try!
