I started this blog with a healthy passion for skincare and six months in the passion may be approaching obsession territory. Ooops. My skincare regime is becoming more and more detailed and to be honest, I love it. Of course it doesn’t have to be this way, it’s certainly possible to maintain healthy, glowing skin with just a few key products. One skincare essential that shouldn’t be skipped is face serum, the low molecular weight allows the skin boosting actives to the sink lower in the skin. I have cherry picked two of my favourites for AM and PM but you have the option to use either one both morning and night.
- SKINCEUTICALS HYDRATING B5* A favourite with dermatologists, you might not have seen this brand outside of skincare clinics. It’s becoming increasingly available and I couldn’t be happier because I really like their products. This is a lightweight moisture serum containing vitamin B5 and hyluronic acid. I was surprised to see some negative customer reviews on the skinceuticals UK and US websites, some saying it wasn’t moisturising enough. I find this incredibly hydrating – it plumps and brightens my skin perfectly when used underneath my normal moisuriser.
- Kiehl’s MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE* Definitely a cult product from the Kiehl’s range, whenever I post about them on twitter I get many comments from people who truely love this brand. Definitely worthy of it’s hero status, this lightweight serum is the perfect addition to anyone’s evening skincare routine. My skin always looks better the morning after using this and I absolutely love the lavender fragrance which aid’s a good night’s sleep.
Both Kiehl’s and Skinceuticals are available worldwide. *Press Samples
