These Drugstore Face Serums Will Totally Transform Your Skin

There are basic steps everyone can take to ensure their skincare routines consist of products that will clean, tone, and keep skin hydrated and smooth. Most people are familiar with cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreen, and even toner. But the most exciting product by far — the one that doesn’t deserve to be neglected — is face serum.

A serum is a lightweight liquid formula that resembles moisturizer, but contains active ingredients that penetrate deep into skin to repair and refine your complexion. The truly great thing about serums is that there are so many — beauty stores offer a banquet of serum options and the formula you choose can address issues you might have thought you’d be stuck dealing with forever.

Got excessively dry skin that doesn’t seem to respond to moisturizers? Try a serum that is rich in ceramides, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid. Worried about how pollution and free radicals can damage your skin and cause signs of aging like wrinkles and hyperpigmentation? A vitamin C serum is fantastic at battling free radicals.

Whichever serum formula you choose, always apply it after toner and before moisturizer. And be sure to check labels because some ingredients, like retinol, should be applied only at night.

These four drugstore serums contain effective ingredients and won’t break the bank. What else could you want out of a magical skin elixir?

Olay Regenerist Serum

Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum ($20.24)


This serum by Olay contains an Amino-Peptide Complex that delivers a turbo boost of hydration that absorbs 10 layers deep into the skin surface. Surface cells are regenerated for quicker cell turnover and smoother, softer skin. In four weeks, you should see an improvement in your skin’s texture and elasticity. It isn’t greasy, it absorbs really fast, and thanks to its fragrance-free formula, this serum is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Eminence Organic Skincare Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum

Eminence Organic Skincare Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum ($41.18)


The delicate skin around your eyes is the first place that shows signs of aging. Using this eye serum helps because it contains hydrating ingredients like neroli oil, which helps maintain moisture levels and balances oily skin. Your eyes will look brighter and the skin surrounding them will be more toned and moisturized.

Timeless Skincare 20% Vitamin C Serum

Timeless Skincare 20% Vitamin C Serum ($16.95)


Vitamin C is one of the most potent and effective antioxidants for slaying free radicals and keeping your skin youthful and healthy. Not only does this vitamin C serum contain a 20 percent concentration of L-ascorbic acid for maximum benefits, it also includes ferulic acid and vitamin E, which extend the life of vitamin C. This may cause tingling and could take some getting used to — avoid aggravating your skin by applying it three or four times a week until you get used to it.

Yeouth Vitamin C Serum

Yeouth Vitamin C Serum ($15.95)


This serum takes three of the most amazing skincare ingredients and blends them together for a powerhouse combination: antioxidant vitamins C and E and hyaluronic acid, which can holds 1000 times its weight in water. Use this serum daily and it will protect your skin from UV rays, keep it looking plump and hydrated, and makes subtle improvements to skin damaged and aging skin.
