The Super Serums
How old were you when you started using your first serum? How often do you use your serums now? If you’re asking yourself if you even need a serum…the answer is YES.
Working here has definitely upgraded all of our skincare routines – especially our serum game. So much so, that we now have many serums to choose from depending on what our skin craves.
Since we have more time now to test and try everything out, we decided to extensively test out some of our favorite serums to give you the lowdown.
So whether you’re looking to improve your skin’s elasticity, moisturize and hydrate on a deeper level, treat your acne, help brighten up some dark spots, or need a little extra moisture throughout the day – keep scrolling to see which products we’ve deemed as the “Super Serums.”
Odacite All-Embracing Serum
VINTNER’S DAUGHTER ACTIVE BOTANICAL SERUM
La Mer The Concentrate
True Botanicals Cellular Repair Serum
When Should I Apply My Serum?
You should try and apply your serums right after you wash your face on damp skin after you apply your toner and essence (if you do those things). This allows the product to absorb deeper into your skin and really work harder for you to maximize its full potential
Water-Based vs. Oil-Based Serums
What’s the difference? Glad you asked.
Water-based serums go under the cream because the molecules are so small and it works to nourish the inner layer of the skin.
Oil-based serums go on top of moisturizers because they’re made up of larger molecules. It keeps whatever is underneath it, hydrated and moisturized throughout the day.

VICTORIA BECKHAM BY AUGUSTINUS BADER CELL REJUVENATING POWER SERUM
Tatcha The Serum Stick
Are Serums Worth the Money?
We would say so! As self-proclaimed serum aficionados, this is a product we can’t live without, and although serums tend to be pricier side because they’re so concentrated, we can’t imagine doing our skincare routine without them. You’ll notice a huge difference in your skin’s texture and tone when you’re only using a moisturizer.
iS Clinical Active Serum
Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum
Lesse Ritual Serum
When’s the best time to apply my serums?
The best time to use them is in the morning and at night right after you’re done washing your face while your skin is still slightly damp. This allows your serum to absorb deeper into your skin.
What serums are you using right now? If you’re looking for a new moisturizer to save your stressed-out skin, we also have some recommendations for you here.
Until next time,
