Product Review: Matrixyl 10% + HA by The Ordinary

Several months ago, I switched from using The Ordinary's "Buffet" Peptide Serum to their Matrixyl 10% + HA and Argireline Solution 10% as part of an experiment.

I wanted to see if one routine worked better for my skin - or not. Using both the Matrixyl 10% + HA and Argireline Solution 10%  isn't a perfect "dupe" for the "Buffet". The Buffet serum contains Matrixyl™ 3000, Matrixyl™ synthe'6™, SYN™-AKE, and ARGIRELOX™. The Matrixyl 10% + HA contains Matrixyl™ 3000 and Matrixyl™ synthe'6™, and then I added the Argireline product. So they were similar, but not exactly the same. (I also have a review on the Argireline 10% Solution.)

The Matrixyl 10% + HA comes packaged in a one ounce frosted glass bottle with a dropper top. It's a clear serum very similar in looks and consistency to The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% , "Buffet ", and Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5.

It's very easy to apply. I usually put three drops in a dampened palm, gently rub both palms together, then apply to my face, neck, and decollete. After that, I rub my hands like I'm applying lotion to distribute any remaining serum on the back of my hands. It absorbs quickly and only leaves a slight tackiness behind. Once I apply my other skin care products, there isn't any tackiness left. It doesn't interfere with any of my other skin care products or makeup.

Here are my thoughts. The Matrixyl 10% + HA is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone. However, for myself, I prefer the Buffet - and I'll be purchasing the new "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% soon. I like the convenience of one product with many different actives. I do think that I will continue to use the Argireline along with the Buffet to see if that increases my results.

If you have sensitivities or only want to add Matrixyl to your routine, the Matrixyl 10% + HA would be a good choice. And it's easy on the wallet. I don't think you can go wrong with any of The Ordinary's serums!

Do you use Matrixyl in your anti-aging routine? What do you feel is the most important anti-aging ingredient?
