We know what you’re thinking. And our guess is it’s one of two things. 1) I often can’t be bothered cleansing in the morning, let alone applying a serum OR 2) My skin looks, and feels like s*it. I need a holiday. And that new Proenza Kent mini. But let’s not get distracted.

Here’s the thing about serums, they’re not a necessity of SPF and 8-glasses-of-water-a-day proportions, but yes, you should have one in your life. These guys are an investment piece, with a cost per wear of next to nothing, and today we’re arguing the case for why you should fork out.

We’ve had enough of our fine lines, uneven skin tone and tired looking skin and here’s the thing, you can’t just use “The Secret” to wish wrinkles away (we’ve tried), so we decided to look into the hardest-working serums that get results fast. We’re talking line-reducing, pigmentation-helping, hyper-hydration results. This week we put them all to the test, and found 6 of the best, so your skin can look and feel…younger, smoother, stronger…. better. You can thank us later.
