Serums v Moisturisers

7th May 2013

How is a serum different to a moisturiser?

Surprisingly, this is a question that a lot of people ask. This post is therefore dedicated to imparting some technical know-how about serums.

  • Serums are mostly gel-like in texture whereas moisturiser formulations can range in texture from lotion to cream. Moisturisers also give a certain immediate skin feel to the skin – either dewy, matte, cashmere, silk or cotton like. The formula and texture of serums are designed to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin.

  • Serums have a more highly concentrated mix of active ingredients than a moisturiser – like super-vitamins!

  • Serums treat the foundation layer of your skin, whereas a moisturiser is designed to add a critical layer of protection on top.

  • Serums are concentrated – so just like your concentrated dishwashing liquid, a ‘little goes a long way’! You only need to apply a 5p coin size.

  • Serums are applied by pressing into the skin. Moisturisers are applied by a gentle massaging technique.

So, convinced you need both? In essence, a serum is a professional ‘problem solver’ for the skin. We have a task force of three and they’re designed to communicate with skin cells and tell them to Be Strong, Be Firm or Be Clear.
