BEAUTY TEST DRIVE

Officially the 5 best serums on ASOS

By Maybelle Morgan, 18 February 2017

Hands up if you don’t know what a serum is? *Tentatively raises a hand at the back* Well, not anymore. Consider it a seriously powerful booster you never knew your skincare routine needed. Yep, it turns out that these teensy bottles pack a whole lot of punch for whatever skin woe you’re toting. Prepare to begin a life-long love affair…

The long road of discovery

If, like me, your skin veers from oily to unforgivingly drier than the Sahara, a serum could honestly be your saviour. I’ll be the first to admit that there were raised eyebrows and a fair bit of scoffing at the dinky miniatures with the fiddly pipettes (year 8 Biology flashback, anyone?). But trust me, hooked doesn’t even cover it now. Here are my five faves...

5 Best Serums at ASOS

Firm face

Get on that preventative hype (apparently it’s never too early), with this divine anti-wrinkle Korres serum. With no nasties and all-natural ingredients, a week of daily application saw my face become plumper and generally just less tired.

 

Korres Black Pine Firming Serum, £39

Texture treat

Yep, yet another acid to slather on, but massive snaps go to the handy travel-friendly pump. This one literally deletes pores after one use and is good for calming down irritated skin (hello, aloe vera).

 

NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Serum, £15

The all-rounder

Super-light formula? Tick. Subtle smell? Tick, tick. General awesomeness. All the ticks. This Vitamin C-enriched serum helps fade any troublesome marks and the radiance thing is no lie. Love, love, love.

 

REN Radiance Perfection Serum, £35

Peel appeal

If you’ve previously worshipped the Vitamin D a little too much (we're all guilty of some uncovered fun in the sun), or your skin's looking a little dull, then this is definitely your deal. The formula exfoliates the skin and over time gives it a glowy, plumper look.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%, £5.50
