Read on and find your perfect serum match!
For those willing to splurge….
StriVectin Intensive Illuminating Serum ($89, bloomingdales.com)
There’s more to aging skin concerns than fine lines and wrinkles; discoloration is also something we try to fight against as time ticks on. This formula is made with a combo of extracts and brightening technology, which overtime is said to help make dark spots less noticeable and smooth out skin texture, leaving you with a brighter, illuminated complexion. If product texture gets you, this goes on incredibly smoothly and blends in literally no time at all.
H20 Oil-Infused Renewing Serum ($58, kohls.com)
Hydration is at the core of this anti-aging serum, with hyaluronic acid and camellia oil both making the ingredients list. But don’t you worry—that definitely doesn’t mean it’s hard to absorb (we tried it, and we’re in love). The brand claims that it works with it a combo of marine essences to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and plump up the skin, too.
Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum ($62, sephora.com)
We’ve long loved Caudalie products, and this serum totally lives up to our expectations. It’s super light and provides antioxidant protection with the brand’s signature polyphenols from grape seeds against the free radicals that contribute to premature aging. It’s also boosted with everyone’s favorite ingredient, hyaluronic acid, for added hydration.
For those on a budget…
(Boots No7 Lift and Luminate Day and Night Serum ($27, target.com)
If you’re the type of person who lives for a skin care routine (we salute you, BTW), you’re likely looking for the perfect anti-aging serum that fits in your day and night line-up. Why choose formulas designed for that particular time of day? This well-known duo from Boots is just that. The day serum reportedly works to diminish the signs of aging—texture, tone, lines, the works—while the night serum boosts moisture and even provides exfoliation. You can find both at the drugstore, which is a plus when you run-dry and need to refresh ASAP.
Skin + Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Hydrating Serum ($20, cvs.com)
In case you missed it, CVS has launched a line of skin care products. This particular product is all about moisturizing, using ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin in its formula, as well as minerals to ward off wrinkles. And at only $20, it won’t break the bank in the process.
L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler ($19, walmart.com)
This anti-aging formula from L’Oreal Paris concentrates on the volume and fullness of your skin, which in turn makes fine lines less visible. Basically, it uses a form of hyaluronic acid (sound familiar by now?) to re-up the skin’s moisture, keeping it plump and protected, and helping fight against the signs of aging. The thing that first caught our eye was the packaging. All you have to do is press a button on the bottom of the tube, and the perfect amount of product is dispensed—no waste, fuss or stress.
