While it may be spring in the UK, the weather can be hit and miss. One day wonderful sunshine, the next torrential downpours… Not only does it mean I have no idea what I should be wearing (coat or just a t-shirt?!), but it means my skin’s still looking a tad pastey too. While a bronzer will add a lovely glow, I still like to treat the source of the problem, and a good serum can do this in a jiffy (or, overnight).
While the Clarins HydraQuench Intenive Serum Bi-Phase is primarily for keeping the skin hydrated, this is key for brighter looking skin too. I have oily skin, but even the oiliest of skin needs to keep hydrated throughout the year, especially when the weather and temperature keeps changing so much. One or two pump of this once a week and my skin is looking radiant!
Nars are more well known for their oh-so-pretty makeup line, but I have a couple of their skincare products, and boy are they dreamy! The packaging is wonderfully minimal, but what’s inside is a treat too… the Nars Optimal Brightening Concentrate does what it says on the tin; it really does add a nice glow to sallow looking skin.
Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Optimizing Skin Serum is a relatively new addition to my skincare collection; its prime reason is to give a healthy looking glow to the skin… And that it does! I prefer the Nars option over this one, but it still gives a good glow when I need it.
Last but not least, Wild about Beauty’s Rose Water Illuminating Serum is perfect for a morning boost. If I wake up in the morning and feel like I should have used an overnight mask but didn’t, then this beauty is a life saver. It sinks into the skin quickly and seamlessly, and it smells absolutely gorgeous too!
Have you tried any of these serums?
