Affordable Serums That Rival High-end Ones



A good serum can set you back £40+ and in some cases I do think investing in a good serum is well worth the money. That being said I've discovered some amazing affordable Ones. So here they are:


The Ordinary Marine Hyluronics* | £5.90

Kicking this post off with possibly my favourite affordable skincare find of the year! This is an ultra light serum that contains marine extracts from water reservoirs. These extracts trap and hold on to water in the similar way to Hyluronic acid. But this is a much lighter option. It absorbs into the skin so quickly! I do find this deeply hydrating to. I like to use AM/PM before any of my other skincare products. And I really find this helps the overall hydration of my skin. It feels smoother and looks plumper to.

Superdrug Vitamin C Invigorating Skin Booster | £4.99

I've spoken in depth about Vitamin C  (See this post) and now I really can't be without it in my skincare. This affordable option from Superdrug is definitely one to check out. It promises to brighten, hydrate and protect the skin from free radicals and environmental aggressors. While I'm not sure on the whole protection thing yet this has helped with keeping my skin radiant and bright! The texture is really light and fast absorbing. I don't find this leaves a film or tackiness to my skin either. It leaves my skin so smooth. I like to use this as part of my AM skincare routine because of it's protection benefits. Plus it works really under makeup to.

Hylamide Low Molecular HA* | £18

Ok, so this is more of a mid price in comparison to some of the other serums mentioned here but I do think given the way it performs it's on par with some serums that are double the price point. Anyway this is a hydrating serum that contains Hyluronic acid at low molecular weight. The low weight means it's easy to penetrate the skin, thus more hydration. This can be layered with skincare or mixed with your favourite moisturiser. I personally like to layer it. This doesn't have the lightest consistency but it's still fast absorbing. I love how this feels on my skin, it feels nourishing and feels like it's actually working.

Skintruth Velvet Facial Serum* | £18.49

Last but not least I have this serum from Skintruth, which is such an underrated brand. Like the Hylamide serum this is in middle of the price scale. But you don't get 50ml so it's really good value for money. This isn't anything groundbreaking in terms of ingredients but I do find this so hydrating. And when they say velvet they mean velvet. It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth, whilst plumping out my fine lines and keeping my skin hydrated all day. I also find this gives my skin a bit of glow and radiance, which is never a bad thing.

There you have a few of my favourite affordable serums.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?
