I started this blog with a healthy passion for skincare. Six months in and 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 sink deeper in the skin.

I cherry picked two of my favourites for AM and PM. You can also 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. It’s a lightweight moisture serum containing vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid. There were some negative customer reviews on the skinceuticals UK and US websites. Many saying it wasn’t hydrating enough. This isn’t the case for me as I find it incredibly hydrating. My skin looks plumper and brighter when it’s used underneath my normal moisuriser.


  • KIEHL’S MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE. This is finitely a cult product from the Kiehl’s range. Whenever I post about Kiehl’s on twitter I get many so many positive comments. People seem to love this brand. The midnight recovery concentrate is worthy of it’s hero status. The lightweight serum is a perfect addition to anyone’s evening skincare routine. My skin always looks better the morning after using this and the lavender fragrance helps me sleep better.

Both Kiehl’s and Skinceuticals are available worldwide.
