6 Game Changing Serums You Need to Try

6 Game Changing Serums You Need to Try

Serums are the one product in every routine that seem de trop, yet address a myriad of skin concerns. The questions on most minds however are ‘do I need a serum’ and ‘what do serums even do‘? The short answers are ‘yes’ and ‘a lot’. The longer answers are that serums are basically a concentrated form of ingredients that deliver fast and powerful results to your skin and because of their lightweight formulas—as opposed to moisturizers thicker ones—can get deeper into your skin. When it comes to whether or not you need them, the answer is decidedly yes.

Choosing the right serum however can be challenging. With so many on the market promising to do just about everything short of altering your face, it’s hard to find the right one for you. Luckily, we’ve narrowed it down to six game changing serums—some old, some new—that really do what they say they will.


REN‘s new serum promises to instantly firm the skin and it does. A veritable ‘beauty shot’ for your face, hyaluronans (cousin to the hyaluronic acid) work to boost your skin. A best seller from Algenist, the Concentrated Reconstruction Serum works to brighten, tighten, and clarify the skin. REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot, $54; Algenist Concentrated Reconstruction Serum, $95.

Technically an overnight peel, the Kiehl‘s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate does just that—refines the skin to reveal younger, fresher, and clearer skin. Known for their skincare, Tatcha‘s Deep Hydration Firming Serum goes on light and helps to brighten the skin (with 24k gold). Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate, $54;   Tatcha Deep Hydration Firming Serum, $95.

The be all and end all of serums, Sunday Riley‘s Good Genes is a favorite of just about everyone who has tried it. It instantly rejuvenates the skin and helps keep it bright, clear, and smooth. MAKE‘s Moonlight Brightening Serum goes on with a pearly finish to help keep skin hydrated and glowing. Sunday Riley Good Genes, $147; MAKE Moonlight Brightening Serum, $70.
