Organic serums are my most favorite skincare thing in the world. Simply because I’ve seen such a difference in my skin after introducing them into my skincare routine regularly a few years ago. Until then, I was using them rather sporadically. So although I enjoyed the texture and quick results of some of them, I did not experience full benefits. I currently have 5 organic serums in my skincare stash and use them all on rotation. So I thought I’d share my experience with them and how they compare to each other.
Gallinee Youthfull Serum* (30ml) is a probiotic and prebiotic skincare brand that I talked about on the blog a couple of months ago. Some of their skincare products made a lasting impression on me, so I was excited to try their Youthful Serum as well. Highly concentrated in probiotics, prebiotics (food for the bacteria), and lactic acid, this serum is extremely potent. Its gel texture is an absolute delight to use. And although it does not provide any instant hydration, I can feel my skin becoming more soften and smoother after using this serum regularly. Also, I appreciate that it has almost no scent because some other Gallinee skincare products had a rather strong scent. Overall, it is a true warrior in helping the skin with its regeneration processes that contribute to smoother, younger-looking skin.
Earth Harbor Marina Biome Brightening Ampoule (10ml) is almost a goner, and I’m so sad about it! It strongly reminded me of Herbivore’s Lapis Oil and even shares a similar scent and a couple of ingredients: one being the blue tansy oil, which actually gives this serum a beautiful blue tint. Other superb ingredients in this Brightening Ampoule that are high in antioxidants and hydration properties are green tea seed oil, rosehip oil, and spirulina extract. One of the things that I want to mention is its texture. I mean, it’s divine! I can not describe how lovely that water to oil consistency feels once applied to the skin. The Serum feels nourishing yet light enough to fully absorb. The skin is left soft, nourished, and glowing. I believe that all skin types, even oily skin, would enjoy and benefit from this product.
Nourish Protect Replenishing Peptide Serum* (30ml) is a brilliant organic serum for someone who wants fresh, radiant skin. Formulated with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, the two ingredients vital for restoring aging skin. I want to start off with its scent, which is very uplifting! I mean, there’s something about smelling citrus scents in the morning, makes me feel happier at once. This serum’s texture is thick, and I find that it leaves a bit of a sticky residue on the skin. Also, it’s a very potent serum, so if you have sensitive skin, I find that it can get a bit irritating. I’ve tried Relax Hydrating Peptide Serum in the past, and it works so well with sensitive, dry skin! Especially be careful if layering with other serums (better not to do that), since it might result in skin redness. Other than that, it’s a great serum to have on hand if you like glowing and hydrated skin.
The Organic Pharmacy Hyaluronic Acid Serum* (30ml) from LoveLula is a must-have in everyone’s skincare routine. I have already gone through it and absolutely loved it! I think you’ve heard a lot about hyaluronic acid and its anti-aging and hydrating benefits before, so I’m not going to elaborate on that. You can read my whole review on this serum and why I love it here on the blog. But to put it short and simple, it leaves my skin visibly more hydrated, plump, and soft.
Indie Lee Cell Serum (30ml) is my all-time favorite face serum. Ever. Ever, ever, ever! I mean, I expected it to be good, but I couldn’t imagine it’s that good. First of all, its texture is fantastic – it absorbs very quickly and does not leave any kind of stickiness or residue. Second of all, it’s hydrating on its own, which is rare for a serum. It might not be enough hydration in winter, but in warmer months, it’s perfect. You need only a small amount if you want the bottle to last you longer. This organic serum leaves the skin visibly smoother, hydrated, and firmer. It also softens fine lines a bit. Overall, it’s anything but amazing except for its price point ($135). But if you can invest in this, I really encourage you to try even a sample.
Have you tried any of these organic serums? Which serum is your current favorite?
