You would not be the first person to be confused by all the skincare products out there. Cleanser, toner, moisturiser, serum, oil, lotion, clay mask. The list goes one. But looking after your skin isn't meant to give you a headache or stress you so much that you break out.
That's where we come in. We are here to make it so simple; your husband could even do it. (sorry babe!)
Today, we are all about the serum. The what, the why and the how. So, let's jump in shall we?
What is face serum?
Their claim to fame is the ingredient potency that makes up a good serum. They are super concentrated to give your skin a decent boost of powerful active nutrients.
The line between face serum and face oils are slightly blurred. Technically the different lies with the base. Serum is typically water based and oil is well, oil based.
How often should I use a face serum?
Face serums slide easily into your nightly skincare routine, right after you cleanse and before you apply your night moisturiser and then eye cream.
But why should I use a face serum?
As already mentioned, they are super concentrated. This infuses a healthy dose of the right ingredients for your skin concern directly onto your skin. Think hello brighter skin with Vitamin C serum or goodbye wrinkles with a good peptide.
So which face serum is right for me?

Then the Lilli Pilli Hydrating Serum is for you. Filled with a solid dose of Vitamin C, this face serum will not only hydrate but also brighten and stimulate collagen growth. Collagen growth = improvement in skin elasticity and a reduce in fine lines and wrinkles.
Banksia Night Serum is your go to. The Aussie Native Banksia flowers potent anti-ageing and restoration properties makes this serum a no-brainer.
Let's hear it for the White Willow Balancing Serum. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) has been recently referred to as Botox in a bottle, by Dr Oz, no less. You can expect an obvious reduction in redness, excess oil production and a more even skin tone.
Bottom line, serum is really good, and your skin will be better for it.
