I'm still in a celebratory mode for my 10+ year anniversary with major luxury skincare brands, and this is another post dedicated to those luxury skincare brands. If you are interested in high-tech skincare brands, then you may find my other posts helpful as that's one of of my key interests.
Nevertheless, today I will be talking about luxury hydrating serums as many of us might be suffering from the imbalance of skin due to the seasonal change whether it's from Summer to Autumn or Winter to Spring. As I've mentioned in my previous posts, hydration is one of the major contributors to beautifully balanced skin, which is connected to skin's optimum health and skin aging overall. I previously wrote about High-end Hydrating Moisturisers already, and this will be a sequel to that.
I hope all of you find the chart helpful as the weather is getting cooler now, and my skin can clearly feel it. As a usual disclaimer, the table is organised based on my personal experience including my family's and friends', so the content may not be coherent to what the companies claim. This rule applies for my all other posts that I've written and I hope you get a good grasp on what you are about to purchase :). Enjoy!
