KBEAUTY ON A BUDGET: SERUMS
KAYLA ALLARD on DECEMBER 17, 2019
Can you believe that this is already the fourth installment of Kbeauty on a Budget? We’ve already covered cleansers, toners, and essences, which means that next up are serums! Have no idea what a serum is, Michaela Waities posted a thorough breakdown on what exactly a serum does and why it’s important to have one, or few, in a skincare routine. Below is small excerpt from her article.
“SERUM IS A SKINCARE PRODUCT YOU CAN APPLY TO YOUR SKIN AFTER CLEANSING BUT BEFORE MOISTURIZING WITH THE INTENT OF DELIVERING POWERFUL INGREDIENTS DIRECTLY INTO THE SKIN. SERUM IS PARTICULARLY SUITED TO THIS TASK BECAUSE IT IS MADE UP OF SMALLER MOLECULES THAT CAN PENETRATE DEEPLY INTO THE SKIN AND DELIVER A VERY HIGH CONCENTRATION OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS.”
Keeping a budget in mind, I have found 5 serums under $15 that tackle various skin concerns from wrinkles to acne scars. As always with this series, I turned to Jolse.com for this list of serums because they have a wide variety of products at great prices PLUS discounts and free shipping to tons of countries. Does it get any better than that? (no)!
NEULII PEONY ACMELLA ANTIOXIDANT SERUM (80ML FOR $11.90)
Advertised as a serum that keep you hydrated and looking young, the Neulli Peony Acmella Antioxidant serum is packed with ingredients to help with those claims, such as Paeoia Albiflora Flower Extract (brighter skin) and Acmella Oleracea Extract (elasticity and vitality – what they say provides a natural botox effect).
PURITO PURE VITAMIN C SERUM (60ML FOR $13.44)
If you’re looking for an “all-rounder” type product, this serum from Purito may be one to try. Not only does it contain 10% Vitamin C and 84% hyaluronic acid, but it also has natural niacinamide and red ginseng, making the product tackle various skin concerns like acne scars, dark circles, and overall brightening.
NATURE REPUBLIC CALIFORNIA ALOE VERA 74 COOLING EYE SERUM (15ML FOR $12.04)
Why not give the eyes some love with a serum specifically for that area! What’s special about this product is that the applicator are three metal balls that provide a gentle massage to the area when applying the serum to the under eyes region. The main ingredients include aloe vera and adenosine. So you can expect for some nice and hydrated eyes!
TONYMOLY THE BLACK TEA LONDON CLASSIC SERUM (50M FOR $14.61)
What do you get when you combine 56% fermented black tea extract, niacinamide, and tea tree oil together? The Black Tea London Classic Serum from Tonymoly, that helps with moisturizing, brightening, and soothing the skin. What sets this serum apart from other tea products is that the tea used is from Taylors of Harrogate, “Britain’s Premium Tea Company”. They mix this tea with “special probiotics to create our own unique patented fermented Black Tea extract, which is packed with antioxidants and has potent anti-aging properties”.
ONSAEMEEIN BIFIDA 100% NATURAL FACE SERUM (50ML FOR $15.86)
The only ingredient to talk about in this serum is the star, Bifida. The positive effects of Bifida include removing excess sebum, help with dead skin, moisturizes the skin without leaving the skin oily, improves skin condition and helps to avoid future problems. Note to self, pick up this serum for myself!
Next time I’ll be sharing various creams that are under $15, with a small challenge for myself to find 5 creams under $10!
