In our quest for finding the best face serums, we've tried just about everything under the sun. We've experienced the breakout-inducing ones, the ones that make our skin feel greasy and sticky, and the awful ones that refuse to work. But amidst that, we've also found a select few good ones — the ones that do exactly what they say and are effective AF. And we're not about to sit here and wait while you jump through unnecessary hoops yourself.
We've shortlisted our top five face serums that we absolutely can't get enough of — and once you try them, we're sure you're going to love them too. We hope you've got your credit cards ready!
01. Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Brightening Serum
If you've been working day and night to get that perfect glow but to no avail, the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Brightening Serum is your answer. Perfect for dull skin, this serum contains hexylresorcinol for evening out the skin tone, witch hazel for some soothing antioxidant action, vitamin B3 for strengthening the skin barrier, and micro-crystals for mild exfoliation and polishing the skin. Use this one when you want a glowing, illuminated look — you'll be in awe of just how effective it is!
02. Dermalogica Age Bright Clearing Serum
If you have oily, breakout-prone skin, you definitely need to try the Dermalogica Age Bright Clearing Serum. A two-in-one brightening and clearing serum, the holy grail product is a fantastic pick if you want glowing skin — while taking care of signs of ageing as well. Containing niacinamide, which encourages brighter, more even skin tone and salicylic acid that minimises breakout, you don't want to miss out on this skin-clearing, anti-ageing gem.
03. Lakmé Vitamin C+ Facial Serum
Of course, we had to include a vitamin C serum in this list, and we're not exaggerating when we say the Lakmé Vitamin C+ Facial Serum is the best there is! Why? Because it’s infused with the richest known source of vitamin C in the world — Kakadu Plums. Suitable for all skin types, lightweight, and non-greasy, this one does everything vitamin C serums promise to do — from getting glowing, bright skin to making the skin feel smooth, nourished, hydrated and moisturised.
04. Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Serum
You know what’s a skincare saviour ingredient that works for every skin type? Hyaluronic acid. And our current fave hyaluronic acid serum happens to be the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Serum. Acting as an instant dose of hydration for the skin, the serum smoothes out all unnecessary texture and boosts the skin’s hydration, thanks to its hydrating, humectant, and moisturising ingredients, hyaluronic acid, pentavitin, and glycerin.
05. Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum
Sure, you’ve heard of argan oil benefitting the hair, but did you know it’s fantastic for dry, dehydrated skin too? A nourishing skincare ingredient that’s a must-have for those with dry, dull, dehydrated skin, the one argan oil serum we’re loving RN is the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum. All you need is a couple of drops of this gem, and you’re guaranteed a deeply nourished skin and a radiant glow on your face almost instantly.
