Serum and Oil: Your New Skincare Holy Grail

You’ve already asked so many people about their routine and have watched tons of skincare vlogs. Now, we are both here hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know you have been reading articles about skincare and you’ve encountered the use of serum and oil. But what is the difference between these two? Because it really hurts when you can’t find the perfect skincare holy grail.
You spend lots of bucks and efforts just to achieve the glowing skin. Why can’t I just have a skin that is flawless and not sensitive? This is just one of the many thoughts I am having every time I look at the mirror contemplating my life decisions.


They both provide nourishment to the skin. The difference? It’s the composition. Some serums are being marketed as oil, thanks to the Korean skincare regimen that became hit to all skincare fans.
The serum is lightweight, the reason it can penetrate the skin and correct underlying skincare problems. Oil’s composition is heavier than water-based serum. Thus, it provides hydration and nutrition. The thing with oils is you have to choose the one that suits your skin type.
Now that you know the basic similarities and differences between these two, here is a short list of Serum and Oils in the market.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-oil

For Dry Skin, this serum-in-oil should be used overnight for a better result. It is non-greasy when applied. Your skin will be refreshed and moisturize the morning after.

Tony Moly The Black Tea London Classic oil

This is for brightening the skin complexion, with soft and supple result. The good thing about this oil, you can use it not just on your face but also can be applied in the hair and nails. Can be used by oily skin as it leaves dry after being used.

Nacific Fresh Herb Serum

This skincare product went famous after Korean actress Jun Ji Hyun revealed that this is her skincare holy grail. I guess we know now where she gets her everlasting youth! Nacific Fresh Herb Serum makes the skin firm and prevents the formation of early wrinkles. It smoothens the face and closes the pores

Nature Republic Fresh Green Tea Serum

This product claim to be anti-aging and provides nourishment. It’s perfect for all skin types, heals impurities and puffiness, and treats dark circles. It has Vitamin K that helps treating the acne and scars.

Mary Elizabeth R Rosehip Tomato Set

The bundle includes Rosehip soap, Tomato toner, and Rosehip oil. It treats dark spots, brightens the skin, and closes the pores. Rosehip oil is making its name to the skincare world. It is known to be a folk remedy for wound healing and treating its scars. It doesn’t just make the skin look brighter and firmer but it also exfoliates and regenerates the cell in the skin with its fatty acids and antioxidants.
Keep it simple in picking your skincare product. Decide what your skin really need and don’t overdo things as it may bring more damage. Lastly, pray that your new holy grail solves the problem.
