Historically, there has been a lot of speculation and debate around face serums and their importance in the realm of skin care. Not quite an oil and not quite a moisturizer. Serums aren’t supposed to take the place of any of your favorite traditional skin care products, but enhance them instead. When used before moisturizing but after cleansing, face serums push a wide range of nutrients into your skin with very little effort. Serums are particularly beneficial as concentrated treatments to specific issues.  Dry skin, blemishes, dullness, you name it and there’s a serum for it. These are just a few of our favorites.


1. Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum

This all-natural serum is filled with enough rosewater, vitamin E, and rose flower oil to keep your face gorgeous and hydrated for years to come. Free of parabens and sulfates, Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum is a fast-absorbing product that hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours and uses smart algae to promote your skin’s elasticity. If you’re looking for a serum that is both environmentally conscious and hard working, this is the perfect product for you.

You can find this serum at Sephora or Fresh.



2. Olay Total Effects Moisturizer + Serum Duo

Olay has been providing women with high-quality skin and body products at extremely affordable prices for decades and the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer + Serum Duo is no different. This top notch serum combines two crucial skin care routine steps into one by combining an SPF heavy moisturizer with a vitamin-rich anti-aging serum. We couldn’t love it any more intensely if we tried.

You can purchase this duo at Olay.
