WHAT IS A FACE SERUM


Face serums work to brighten, even and protect complexions.
A highly effective skincare step, you can tailor your skin serum to dry, oily, mild-acne prone and sensitive skin type needs. Ahead, see how to implement hydrating serums and more in your skincare routine.

Serum skincare is formulated to be lightweight and thin in viscosity, with either an oil or water base. The reason behind Kiehl’s serum’s powerful results are the high concentrations of potent ingredients included. By delivering them to skin in a lightweight formula, skincare serum ingredients like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and retinol can penetrate and get to work deeply on skin.



How to apply a face serum


The typical way to approach skincare application is to start with the lightest formula and end with the thickest. A hydrating serum and brightening serum will be applied in much the same way (though products containing retinol will need to applied as part of evening routines only). When using your face serum, the number one rule is to always apply after using a cleanser. Otherwise, the formulas aren’t able to access deep layers and work as effectively as possible. After you have applied your facial serum, follow with a moisturiser to lock in hydration.



How to layer serums correctly


Did you know that serum skincare can be layered together to enhance results? Certain ingredients promote each other’s benefits, and by mixing or layering them you can help the process of absorption into skin. We recommend pairing skin serums with complementary ingredients and benefits. Some face serum formulas to consider layering include those with the following ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic acid and retinol
  • Vitamin C and niacinamide
  • Retinol and ceramides
  • Botanicals and glycerin


  • What face serum is best for me?


    Because of the unique benefits of Kiehl’s serum skincare, you can select formulas based on your skin’s needs and concerns. Whatever your skin type is, explore the best Kiehl’s serum for your skin’s radiance and vitality below.



    The best anti-ageing serum


    You can use serum face care products to firm, lift and boost skin texture and appearance. One of the most effective products in anti-ageing skincare, face serums protect skin against future ageing and address current signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots. With consistent use, anti-ageing skin serums help to plump and even out the surface of skin.



    best anti-aeging serum

    Retinol Skin-Renewing Daily Micro-Dose Serum

    Retinol Skin-Renewing Daily Micro-Dose Serum uses potent but daily-strength dose retinol which is suitable for use by sensitive skin. This anti-ageing serum visibly reduce wrinkles, firms skin and improves texture.

    The best dark spot serum


    Dark spots appear on skin due to external stressors like UV radiation and usually present from our 30s onwards. A skin brightening serum works to reduce discolouration across skin by infusing skin with antioxidants and other radiance-boosting ingredients.



    Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

    To help boost skin clarity and support < ahref="https://www.kiehls.co.nz/skincare-advice/how-to-get-glass-skin.html">glass-like skin, Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution is packed with antioxidant activated C. A derivative of vitamin C, this potent ingredient addresses hyperpigmentation for radiant skin.

    The best hydrating serum


    When skin feels dry, dull or rough, it’s most likely due to a lack of moisture. A hydrating serum works to reimplement moisture in skin via moisturising ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which draw moisture to skin and keep it there. They can also contain brightening ingredients to address dulled complexions.



    best anti-aeging serum

    Hydro-Plumping Serum Concentrate

    Penetrating up to 10 surface layers of skin, Hydro-Plumping Serum Concentrate hydrates skin and promotes a bouncy and bright complexion. The inclusion of 15% glycerin and epidermal hydration filler help to improve the appearance of dehydrated skin.

    The best night serum


    Skin works to repair itself as we sleep, and a face serum can help further enhance skin health during this period. Take advantage of this overnight process by applying a skin serum specially formulated to boost complexions by the time you wake up.



    Retinol Fast Release Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum

    Our evening retinol serum formula contains our highest concentration of retinol yet. Pure retinol works to accelerate the skin cell cycle and promote fresher and younger skin to surface level. Use Retinol Fast Release Wrinkle-Reducing Night Serum to reduce the appearance of fine lines, dulled complexions and even wrinkles.

    The best brightening serum


    Skin brightening serums address concerns like dullness, discolouration and dehydration. Antioxidants in particular can help to achieve radiant complexions. This is because they block stressors from compromising healthy skin cells, which supports healthy and bright complexions.



    best anti-aeging serum

    Daily Reviving Concentrate Facial Oil

    Lightweight enough for daily use, Daily Reviving Concentrate Facial Oil works to address visible signs of fatigue. An infusion of botanical oils like ginger root and sunflower oil along with antioxidants helps to refresh and boost complexions for glowing skin.

    The best serum for fine lines


    Fine lines on skin are a result of cumulative extrinsic stress from UV radiation, pollution and lifestyle, and also from intrinsic changes that happen to skin as we age. From our 20s onwards we lose natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. Targeted serum skincare and address the appearance of fine lines on skin for a more uniform and youthful complexion.



    Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

    Formulated with a potent combination of 10.5% L-Ascorbic Acid Pure Vitamin C and 2% ascorbyl glucoside (or Vitamin Cg), this face serum permeates skin layers deeply to improve the appearance of fine lines. Implement Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate as part of your morning routine for added protection against external stress and enhanced radiance.
