Serums are must-haves for me when it comes to my skincare regime. Oh, but then again, my skincare regime is pretty extensive so… Anyway, if you thought that you could skip serum and go straight to just applying moisturiser, you’re only half right.
Serums are products that can be chock-full of moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides etc. which may seem like replacements for moisturisers. However, serums do not contain “sealing” ingredients which moisturisers have, that are used to prevent moisture from leaving your skin. Most of the time, serums are rich in ingredients to target specific skin concerns such as dullness, acne, wrinkles, dryness to name a few. For me, I battle with skin dullness, uneven skin texture, acne and dryness so serums are my lifesavers.
Here are 5 of my favourite serums that I cannot live without:
Ever since I’ve started religiously using skincare products to protect my skin, I’ve always been curious about a brand called Aesop. As such, I bought my first Aesop product, the Parsley Seed Masque, with my first intern pay check a couple of years back.
Aesop was a brand that reached out to me because of its simplistic and minimalistic packaging. I love how the products are packed in dark brown bottles with black and cream-coloured labels. Each of their products have got an aromatic herbaceous scent on their own which can calm my senses. Of course, after hearing all the raves on the Internet, I had to start my Aesop journey with the Parsley Seed range!
Being a huge fan of the Parsley Seed Masque, it’s a no-brainer when Mankind approached me to discover more from Aesop. I ordered everything from the Parsley Seed range! And yep, it’s just easy to order online and get products shipped to you, isn’t it? I have with me the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Treatment and Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Hydrating Cream. One word to describe the range – irreplaceable!
Happy New Year my lovelies!
