Serums You NEED To Start Using In 2019

 

To put it lightly, I LIVE for beauty products…and clothes and shoes and snacks…but today I’m talking about my favorite serums you need to try in 2019! 

If there’s any way to make my skin look younger, brighter, and more hydrated, I’m all in! (Unless it’s “all in,” in reference to gambling, then I’m ALL the way out! This one time my friend’s mom gave us each $20 to gamble with when we went to Vegas, and I wasn’t allowed to use it for anything except gambling. Long story short I lost it all to penny slots and could have bought one drink with that $20…yes, only one. Vegas is freaking expensive!) Did I mention, I get distracted easily?

Okay, back to the post.

I love beauty products and I use a LOT of them, so today I’ve listed my favorite serums for you, including the prices, how to use them, and my tips for using each product. 


MY SKIN & SKINCARE GOALS:

I am 30 years old and have been using anti-aging moisturizers and serums since I was 16, first as preventative and now as maintenance. My skincare goals are to reduce dullness, even out my skin texture and tone (I have hyper pigmentation from popping blemishes – I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I just can’t stop), and to diminish any fine lines, luckily I don’t have any yet, but I’d like to keep it that way! 


SERUMS:

DAY: Drunk Elephant – C Firma Day Serum

  • What does it do?: This day serum helps even out skin tone and texture, increases skin firmness and elasticity, and aids in brightening the skin. 

  • What skin type is this for?: All skin types (dry, oily, combination, normal)

  • How I use this: I use this C Firma Day serum in combination with the B Hydra Intensive Hydrationand Protini Polypeptide Cream every morning. 

  • Cost: $80 / 1oz

  • Tips/Tricks: Because all Drunk Elephant products are formulated without silicones, you can pump them all together and apply in only one step!

DAY: Drunk Elephant – B Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum

NIGHT: Drunk Elephant – T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

  • What does it do?: This serum contains AHAs* as well as BHAs** that refine and resurface the skin. This serum evens out skin tone and texture, while brightening the skin and diminishing fine lines, wrinkles and pores. 

  • What skin type is this for?: All skin types (dry, oily, combination, normal)

  • How I use this: I use this T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum all over my face, right after I apply my Shaba Complex Eye Serum, but before I apply my Josie Maran Argan Oil or Acure Marula Oil

  • Cost: $90 / 1oz. or $134 / 1.69oz.

  • Tips/Tricks: Because of its high amounts of AHA* (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA** (betahydroxy acids) that do wonders to resurface your skin, do not use this serum during the day, and please make sure to wear a sunscreen daily, because your skin will be more sensitive to the sun and UV rays.
