I’m getting serious about these face serums.

April 3rd, 2012 2 Comments


You know how once you see something once and really notice it, then you start seeing it everywhere?  That’s how it was for me with face serums a few months ago.

So I randomly tried the dermalogica skin hydrating booster ($54) tester on my hand one day in the airport massage spa. One drop on my fingers melted into this silky smooth gel I easily spread over the back of my hand.  Wow. Almost instantly my skin was moisturized, smooth, and tight.  Even the little creases vanished! Without hesitation, I whipped out my credit card thinking this would be the ultimate moisturizer after a long day in the sun in Asia.  To this day, the booster continues to be an instant anti-aging method in my opinion.

When I returned from vacation, I found the Kiehl’s Corrective Dark Spot Corrector ($50) on my doorstep.  Promising to lighten spots and even out skin tone, this serum has been clinically proven to be magical.  I have been applying it nightly under my night creme, and I can actually see and feel a difference. Everyone is advertising dark spot treatments, as I know you’ve seen.  This one actually works.

Both serums have helped improve the texture of my skin, which is a big thing for me.  Botox works for wrinkles, but cremes fail me on the texture.  These serums have proven to keep my skin looking young and fresh….in my eyes anyway.
