Serums – Skincare’s new Superheroes

14 Nov


Serums have undoubtedly become the superheroes of skincare.  Demand is growing so quickly for high potency serums that Olay’s waiting list reached 10,000 for its new serum Regenerist 3 Point Super Serum. After using this product for a month it’s easy to see what all the fuss is about, it really does work just as well as many of its more expensive counterparts (Cost €38)

How do serums differ from face creams?

A serum does not replace your moisturiser, rather it should be layered beneath your daily face cream where it will act like a bespoke troubleshooting treatment. They are designed to be intensive, penetrating beyond the top layer of the epidermis, creating real results which can be seen the morning after you’ve applied a serum -even for the first time, and it allow you to give yourself the type of treatment which was previously only available in salons.

Some of the Best Serums on the market.

Sisleya Radiance Anti-Aging Concentrate  (€310)


Sisleya Radiance Concentrate is a very high-quality anti-aging product with convincing results.

Cliniques Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector (About €40)

This ‘cocktail’ of potent enzymes, peptitdes and antioxidants help smooth existing lines and protect against future damage.

Chanel Sublimage Essential Revitalising (€320 )

    *Blush* If I had the money I’d buy all of the above. Sigh. This is probably why I don’t have money!
