I seem to be dabbling a lot with my serums at the moment as I have a few newbies that I’ve been really enjoying. Ranging in price and skincare targets here is the low-down.
No 7 updated their well loved Protect and Perfect Serum (£23.95/30ml Boots) recently to produce the Advanced formula, again designed to combat early signs of ageing, fine lines and boosting radiance. I've been using this at night to help fight fatigue whist I sleep.
Another radiance boosting serum is Vichy Idealia Life Serum (£26.96 Feel Unique) which has a pearlescent tone. It helps to reduce the exposure our skin from stress, pollution and unbalanced diets, so perfect for the city girl. I’ve really enjoyed using in the mornings under my regular moisturiser for an instant boost and extra protection from the day ahead.
The new kid on the block from Olay is the lasted edition to their Regenerist Luminous Range that was launched last year (see review here). The new serum is designed to help brighten the skin and add luminosity whilst helping disguise dark sports and gradually lift the skin too. I've been using this on rotation with the Vichy Idealia Life as a day serum - don't want that luminosity wasted on my pillow! It is currently reduced to £19.99 from £29.99 at Boots.
Finally, if you have some cash to splash, you might fancy trying Dr Sebago Serum Repair (£69/20ml Space NK) which is all about the hydration, containing water loving Hyaluronic Acid as well as micro molecular collagen to reduce wrinkles. It does feel a little sticky when you first apply, then sinks into the skin. For best results you need to massage into the skin and allow 10 minutes before applying makeup, so this is my Sunday serum, or perfect to plump up your complexion pre-party.
