Let me begin by saying I know nothing about serums. I know that people love them and many of my friends (bloggers and otherwise) use them daily but personally, I don't know a whole lot about them. Every serum I've seen has been exorbitantly expensive. Not that I don't believe in investing in skincare, I mean you only get one face, but I have a hard time shelling out hundreds of dollars for a (generally tiny) bottle of gel. Enter in the Nicel Retinol Night Serum. As I was perusing the beauty aisle of my local grocery store, I noticed this serum and it was a steal at only $4. What caught my eye was not only the nice size of the bottle but how much more expensive the packaging looked in comparison to the actual price.
The first thing I noticed was this serum appeared to be more of a light cream than a gel. I actually like the thicker consistency, especially this time of year. The serum doesn't have a smell which is also nice. The claims are this serum will firm and renew with anti-wrinkle emulsion technology. What I noticed is my skin feels smoother and appears plumper compared to not using a serum. I'm not sure whether or not I truly believe all the hype surrounding serums, but this does make my skin feel better so that's always a bonus.
Do you use a serum? What serums would you recommend?
