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...
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.
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).
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.
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.
