Whenever the girls in the office ask for a recommendation on a serum – their first (aww!) – I generally 1) Welcome them to the club and 2) Point them to Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum (212 872 8726). I like to think of this herbal-based skin elixir as a great starter serum for newbies as well as a really solid preventative serum for individuals with sensitive skin.
This one does all the thinking for you! Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum (212 872 2782) intuitively zones in on your skin’s specific needs and works to repair the damage that most women tend to experience in their 30′s – uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkling and loss of radiance. It’s all about targeted repair.
When lifting and firming is a concern, SK-II Signs Up-Lifter (212 872 8819) is the super serum for the job. This intensive, peptide-packed workhorse lifts sagging skin and improves elasticity. This one rocks for 40+ skin.
