Face serums are still a fairly new addition to our skincare regimes, and because it’s always a little daunting trying something new, we’ve done the testing for you. Tougher than usual moisturisers, serums are able to penetrate deeper into the skin and are much better at tackling specific problems such as fine lines, dull skin, and oily spots. Remember to apply a moisturiser over the top of your serum too, otherwise your skin will dry out. Check out the StyleNest edit of the best serums around for each and every skin type.
Fibrogene Line Response Serum
Darphin at Space NK
The silky-smooth feel of this Darphin product is creamier than usual serums. It actually feels much more like a light moisturiser so it’s great if you’re new to serums. It works hard on those pesky fine lines and will leave your skin nourished from dawn till dusk.
Pro-Collagen Quartz LIft Serum
Elemis at lookfantastic.com
Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Quartz serum is a pricey product, but it is definitely worth the money if you’re looking for a hard-working anti-ager. I was instantly impressed as I immediately felt my skin looked brighter and more plump. One to invest in if you suffer from tired or dull skin.
The clever research behind Dr. Hauschka’s product suggests you don’t need to use a moisturiser on top, so perfect for any busy mums that can’t face adding another product to their regime. A top choice if you suffer with break-outs of oily skin as it’s completely oil-free.
Bio Active Stimulating Serum
Skin Science at Harvey Nichols
Exclusive to Harvey Nichols stores nationwide and online, this Norwegian brand are pioneering the way in organic serums. Full of antioxidants it helps to slow the ageing process and rejuvenate skin. If you prefer lighter, cleaner feeling products this is a great choice as it sinks in to the skin really quickly.
Truth Serum Collagen Booster
Ole Henricksen at lookfantastic.com
Think of this serum as a Vitamin C tablet for your skin. Packed full of the stuff, it leaves the skin feeling fresh and revitalised. Most serums smell plain or slightly chemical but this one has a wonderful orangey aroma to it making it really stand out. A good choice for sensitive skins.
Pore Refining Solutions Correcting Serum
Clinique at John Lewis
No matter how strict you are with your skincare routine sometimes it seems impossible to shift those prominent pores, especially around the nose and chin. Clinque’s Pore Refining Serum promises to challenge the problem by reducing their appearance by 30%. If like us you’re already huge fans of the trusted brand, this is another must-have product to add to your collection.
Regenerist 3 Point Super Serum
Olay at Boots
This serum glides onto the skin effortlessly. Make sure you use a good moisturiser on top as it can feel a little dry, but come morning you will notice a difference in the appearance and the texture of you skin. At only £20 a pop, it’s priced very reasonably too.
