I have been playing around with over a dozen serums recently, each day is like a pick and mix. I always used to think cleansers were my favourite part of a skincare routine, when actually, my obsession with a great serum is pretty strong right now. When I first sat down and thought of writing about my love for serums, I had lined up at least 10 serums on my desk. Now, that is just far too many to digest at any one time, so today I thought I would share with you five of my favourite serums.
Me and Antipodes are tight. In my eyes this brand can do no wrong. The Worship Superfruit Antioxidant serum* I have mentioned a few times on this blog and I am still loving it. Everything from the light texture to the smell, to the anti-aging, line fighting formula. For the record, I own and love every single one of the Antipodes serums: Hosanna, Apostle and Joyous.
I originally thought Nude Skincare Progenius Omega Treatment Milk was a moisturiser, oops, silly me. I soon learnt it was indeed a serum. I love the fact it is described as a superfood smoothie for your skin, packed with fantastic ingredients including Chia Oil. I use this in conjunction with the treatment oil for a real wow factor.
Pestle and Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum* reviewed here, tackles not just fine lines but dehydration too. For someone who has awfully dehydrated skin this one is an essential. I like to use this alone without a moisturiser on top before buffing in a mineral foundation.
One with a slightly slippy consistency, and reminds me of a very light facial oil, is ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum. I got a sample of this ages ago and having used every last drop of it up; I had to get a full size. Packed with all the essential Omegas and Vitamins, I love this one because it is to help protect against premature ageing. At 26, I ensure my skincare routine has products in that will help tackle those warding wrinkles. I tend to only use this of an evening as I find it is too much for my skin underneath make-up during the day.
Last but not least, a time old serum that I always come back to: Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum. Want to improve hydration and elasticity all at once? This one is for you. When my skin is obviously unhappy and dull, I add this into my morning routine for a perk me up.
What serums do you guys trust with your life? Tell me your secrets.
