Some say yes! Serums are said to be the “game-changing” facial product that so many swear by! They’ve been around for a long time, but over the past decade have gained more prominence with beauty gurus and skincare specialists. So, what’s a serum and why do we need one? A serum is a light-weight liquid formula that has highly concentrated active ingredients that penetrate deep down into the skin, unlike other products and moisturizers, which is why they often come with hefty price tags!

Serums contain potent ingredients like vitamin C, antioxidants, and plant and seed extracts and oils that help chase away wrinkles and target various skin conditions like acne, dark spots, dryness, and large pores. If you’ve adopted a skincare regimen, but are still struggling to see real results, you may be missing this one important step. View our gallery below to see some of our favorite serums (for various budgets) that can take your skin from dull to radiant in a flash!

I make my own using recipes from members on MakeupAlley. It’s pretty easy. I even use it on my arms and legs sometimes.
