Facial Serums 101

BeautyLibby RasmussenComment

Two months ago, I wouldn't have been able to tell you the first thing about serums much less their benefits.  Hair or facial, I wrote off these products as another cosmetic fad.  It wasn't until I received a few samples in the mail, I didn't just become a believer, but a preacher for the product.  I did a bit of research, watched some tutorials and was finally understanding.  Facial serums are like taking a daily multi-vitamin for your skin.  They are designed to lighten, brighten, and repair your skin at any age.   

I started out by testing AmorePacific's  All Day Balancing Care Serum and loved it.  Using this serum made me excited for my morning and evening facial routine. Sadly, at $240.00 a bottle, it was too pretty of a penny for me to justify as a first-time serum user.  After looking at a few options, I read great things about the Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum at only $30.00

Many articles shared the same sentiment - it's not the price of your serum, it's the fact that you're actually using one.  I apply it twice a day - once in the morning before my moisturizer and before bed prior to toning my skin. Which facial serum is your go-to?
