I keep seeing so many ads about serums to use on a woman's face - and this is on top of moisturisers, sun block, night cream....
Do they really work?
Anyone out there who has tried them and can tell the truth please. Plus, are the 'expensive' ones at the beauty counters really more effective than those at Watsons and Guardian pharmacy, or just a matter of slick marketing and packaging?

 I have combination skin thus sun cream and all these serums makes me break out. I only use Hada Labo lotion, the clear liquid one in the clear bottle. It isnt't too much for the skin, but it keeps your skin very supple and hydrated. On some nights I use Hydro Boost gel by Neutrogena and it is amazing, very refreshing and hydrating too. But don't use that to much though, once or twice a week does the trick. Overall, it really depends on the condition of your skin type I guess. My advice, just don't overdo it and pile on too much.

 Hyaluronic acid serum is a cosmetic product which if used helps the skin to be more hydrated. At birth we all have hyaluronic acid which gives us a youthful and even skin tone; that is why babies have adorable skin tone.
