Serums are perhaps one of my favourite parts of a skincare routine… it’s the part where you can really focus on what your skin needs and incorporate treatments for your desired effect.
I have recently been loving these two serums from Glow Recipe. Together, they provide a potent glow, refining and brightening the skin as well as nourishing and hydrating the moisture barrier. Also love that you can both mix and layer these serums together for a potent cocktail.
Glow Recipe is clean, vegan and leaping bunny certified cruelty-free. They advocate natural, gentle skin care product. Founded by two skin care lovers Sarah Lee and Christine Chang who share over 20 years of experience in the global beauty industry, their brand is founded on passion and commitment to demystifying Korean Beauty.
