SERUMS ON TRIAL

July 04, 2016
I'm notoriously sloppy when it comes to having a sturdy skincare regime, I mean I always remove my makeup before bed and religiously put moisturiser and eye cream on in the morning but anything more than that is a rarity. But I have been getting better and I've been sticking to a far more elaborate skincare routine morning and night, and surprise my skin is looking so much better - but really why didn't I do this ages ago? One of the things that I have noticed is that since adding in the extra step of serum my skin has been improving a lot quicker, I have been using two recently that are becoming the staples of my routine.
For those who have dry/dehydrated skin the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum is the one for you. This is a mega hydrating serum, it says that it helps to improve the diffusion of moisture into the skin - whether that is the case or not it still makes my skin feel great. It's not thick at all and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy or anything so you can use it morning and night. Since incorporating this into my skincare routine I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin, it's been feeling so much more plump and hydrated.
A newer addition is the Organic Surge Intensive Soothing Serum which is supposed to restore radiance to the skin which makes it perfect for use in the morning. This is more of a gel consistency compared to the Vichy serum but it still sinks into the skin nicely, leaving it feeling soothed and refreshed. I don't think I have been using it long enough to see any drastic results but so far I have liked it. I feel like it does make my skin look a bit brighter in the morning but whether there will be any more long term radiance improvements I'm not sure yet - I'll keep you posted.
Sure the price tags of serums can put you off like it did for me, but seriously they are probably one of the most important parts of any skincare routine. They are super concentrated so you know you are putting some seriously good stuff on your skin that's really going to care for it. Maybe start with French Pharmacy serums as they are affordable and are pretty much always on offer somewhere.

What are your favourite serums?
