The Skincare Series | Oils & Serums

The Skincare Series is coming to a close. With just a couple of posts left to go, we have covered absolutely loads of skincare areas! From my first post where I shared My Old Skincare Routine, Makeup Remover, Face Wash, Cleansers, Exfoliators, Toners and Eye Care. This month we're going to be talking serums and oils, and then all we have left to cover are face masks and moisturisers!


I've only been using facial oils and serums for the past year - before then I didn't really know much about them and I was pretty weary of using them. For someone with naturally oily skin, the thought of putting an oil or a serum on my face, I suppose, scared me. I worried it would make my oily skin worse. How wrong I was! Oils and serums have actually probably been the products which have made the biggest positive change in my skin. They help so much, and regardless of your skin type, I genuinely believe the right facial oil or serum could work absolute wonders for your skin.

There are four products which stand out for me the most where facial oils and serums are concerned. Two are oils, two are serums. The Antipodes Divine Face Oil with Organic Avocado Oil and Rosehip is a facial oil I use both morning and night in my skincare routine. I have reviewed it in full before, which you can read here, and it is a complete holy grail skincare product for me. And very reasonally priced at just £18.99 too! You can find it on the Feel Unique website with free delivery! The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (full review to come soon) is an oil reserved for night time use. This product literally leaves my skin feels like new when I use it, and I reserve it for special occasions or a real skin treat and pick me up. You can find it on the Kiehl's website and a 30ml bottle costs £36.

The REN Omega 3 Night Repair Serum is a dream. With a lovely fruity smell, it leaves my skin feeling soft, supple and incredibly hydrated by morning. You need the tiniest amount too, so the 50ml tube which costs £34 is bound to last months. It's one of my most reached for night time serums! You can find it on the REN website! The Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate* is a serum I wanted to try for ages, and it has not let me down. I use this once or twice a week for a real proper skin pick me up. It's enriched with lovely pure plant oils which work to make my skin look and feel amazing! You can find it on the Liz Earle website and a 28ml bottle costs £40.50.

  1. Wow you have quite the collection of oils and serum. Antipodes and Kiehls are definitely on my list to try soon.

    At the moment my favourite facial oils are Liz Earle's Superskin Concentrate for really balancing my skin, and Trilogy's Certified Organic Rosehip Oil (the original and the Antioxidant+) for keeping my skin really soft and supple.

    1. I have to admit - This is only a small collection of the serums and oils that I have! Antipodes and Kiehl's are both such wonderful brands! Definitely give them a go :) xo

  2. I think the REN Omega 3 Night Repair serum is excellent, I had a small sample tube and it lasted ages. At the moment I'm using up other serum samples I've got but I'll be repurchasing it at some point in the future.

    I don't get on with the Liz Earle superskin concentrate. It was too strong for my skin and left red marks on my face. However I love most other LE products.
