The Best Facial Serums – Tried & True

I’ve noticed over the past week that majority of my skincare is SERUMS! Somehow from all of the PR packages, events and my own purchases I’ve ended up with 6 different serums and yes I use them all. But not all at once obviously! 😉

Each of them are similar in certain ways but also different in the specific benefits that they provide to the skin. Today I’ll be sharing each and every one of them, rating them from my favourite to least favourite!


Lancome Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate

This one ranks number one simply because it’s the one that works the quickest, in my opinion. A little bit of it goes a long way and it leaves your skin feeling and looking smooth and supple. After just 7 days (which is the expectation) I actually saw a change in my skin. I used it from the very first day I received in (about a week ago) and my skin hasn’t felt this good in a long time!


Biotherm Aquasource Aura Concentrate

No matter how much I moisturize I tend to get dry in one area of my face when I apply makeup, my chin and around the corners of my mouth. However when using this product my skin instantly feels packed with moisture. It also leaves the most gorgeous glow on the skin, something that I find rare in most serums! I like pairing this with the aquasource gel from Biotherm for best results.



Image Skincare Vital-C Serum

I am obsessed with this new vitamin A, C and E serum because it literally gives my skin a refresher overnight. Plus it smells like a basket of oranges and lemons and who doesn’t love a good smelling product! 😉 I don’t need much of this to cover my whole face and when I apply it I can instantly see the hydration happening on my skin. The first time I used this my jaw actually dropped when I woke up because my skin looked so brand new LOL.


Volition Snow Mushroom Water Serum

This is a newer product that I just started using and I’ve got to say the snow mushroom really does hydrate the skin in ways I’ve never seen before. The snow mushroom can hold 500x its weight in water, hence making this product absolutely amazing for dry skin. It also helps promote cell renewal and helps the skins collagen production! I love the way this serum makes my skin feel, smooth, plump and hydrated.


Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum

When I’m looking for an all natural serum this one is my go-to, which is usually when I have acne on my face. I don’t see a very drastic change in my skin after using it but it definitely gives my skin the hydration it needs when applying drying acne treatments!


Michael Todd Vitamin C Complex Plus Retinol Rejuvenating Serum

I’ve got to say that although this is supposed to be a rejuvenating serum, I really didn’t see or feel a change in my skin when using it. Even after a few days of continuous use day and night the only change was hydration! It’s supposed to also reduce the appearance of pores and dark spots but unfortunately I can’t say I saw a difference 🙁
