5 of the best – Serums

By  |  2 Comments

With the change of the season about to hit, now is the time to give your skin an extra boost.

Serums have smaller molecules than moisturisers so can deliver and deposit nutrients much deeper into your skin than a moisturiser can.

Here’s the top pick of the serums available on the market today – there are hundreds so find one you like, that suits your skin and tackles the issues you are looking to be addressed – be it firming, anti-aging, sun-damage or extra moisture.





Caudalie VinExpert Firming Serum – £44 

The science behind Caudalie stems from the grape – we have been told for some time the anti-oxidant power of red wine so this has been harnessed into a skin loving range.  We also love Caudalie as their products are free from parabens, oil free and not tested on animals.

This serum has a lovely application, soothing and smoothing with the power of rose, soy, grape, red vine and ginseng.  Use morning and evening.   Can be bought from Space NK and a variety of reputable online beauty retailers.



Strivectin Overnight Resurfacing Serum – £51 

The legends in stretch mark and anti-wrinkle moisturisers have extended their range to include a serum.  This feels thick but absorbs quickly so no excuses using it before your make-up!  This is termed as an “overnight resurfacing serum” and will smooth skin texture, diminish pores and wrinkles and brighten skin tone.   Buy from Space NK




Lierac Coherence Age Defense Firming Serum – £41

A lovely cream serum, leaves your skin buttery smooth. Contains high levels of skin collagen to boost elasticity and taughtness.  A very nice serum, goes on very well and feels great after application – definitely tighter and fresher.  Great for all ages and skin types.  Available from Look Fantastic


E.V.E By Institut Estherderm

Miracle E.V.E Serum – Institut Esthederm 

The newest in revolutionary from Institut Esthederm, 15 years in the making.  They have decided that rather than cramming the serum full of ingredients know to be anti-aging they have focused on adding substances found in the skin tissue itself.  This allows the skin to naturally regenerate itself with these essential, vital elements (E.V.E) – including 21 amino acids, 6 minerals salts, 6 trace elements, 9 vitamins, 3 carbohydrates, 5 nucleopeptides and 1 peptide.  Upon application, 85.7% of women felt their skin was instantly tighter (me included) and after 3 weeks 81% of women noticed an increase in firmness.

This is a great serum, not to be massaged in but left on the surface to absorb slowly, thus allowing it to hit all the major layers of the epidermis on the way down.  Surely feeding your skin something it needs to function and regenerate is better than putting something on it that would never have been there in the first instance?

E.V.E Serum is available from Fenwicks and Libery at a cost of £77



Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Serum – £60

TLC for winter-weary complexions. NEW Extra Repair Serum is Bobbi’s solution for dry or very dry skin. Luxurious and milky, this concentrated repair serum comforts skin as it firms and moisturises. Anti-ageing ingredients like Vitamin C and a powerful peptide help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles both instantly and over time. Meadowfoam Seed Oil hydrate whileWheat, Bran and Olive Extracts help your skin hold on to moisture. Clary Sage Extract helps reveal a clearer, more radiant complexion. Layer underneath your favourite moisturiser.  Available from Bobbi Brown’s online site.
