Hi all My normally normal skin has been slightly dry lately. My sis, who is probably on the "hoard" thread, told me to start using a serum and I tried a couple from her.
One was pricey, can't recall brand, felt like a primer.
Other was Nip + Fab...felt like a primer....!
Is this what they seem like but they are actually doing fab moisturising? I don't need an oil, that would be way too rich, but I'm not sure whether to buy a serum or just have two different moisturisers or something....?
I use various serums to address different things : Aqualia for dryness, Good Genes to brighten and even complexion, Dragons Blood to firm etc etc but I always moisturise afterwards in the winter/spring/autumn.
In summer my skin becomes weirdly perfect in that it never needs moisturiser so I continue to use just serums as they actively do something other than add unnecessary moisture.
If you feel serum is enough then carry on without moisturiser. But serums should always go on first after cleanse and tone.
Popped to Superdrug at lunchtime Wasn't there, didn't buy anything else as I suddenly realised I have no idea which ingredient creates that primer feel that I want to avoid, nothing actually says "silicone" on the ingredients Skincare is getting way too complicated!
