Best Serum for Dry Skin

(Last Updated On: August 15, 2018)

What do you want in a serum for dry skin? Let us ask a more general question what does the world want in a serum for dry skin? What is the opposite of dry of course it is wet so we want a serum that will foremost hydrate our dry skin. It can be very painful to have itchy, dry, and flaky skin. If you have this type of red and sore skin then you need to find a serum that will decidedly hydrate the skin and remove the dead skin cells that are making the skin look dry, tired and old.

It must have ingredients that will restore the skin cells and nourish and strengthen the skin. The serum must be of a nature that it will not irritate the skin or cause the skin to breakout and cause acne to cover the face. The serum should have anti-inflammatory properties to prevent the skin from becoming inflamed because when the skin is inflamed it will open the doors for acne-causing bacteria to enter the pores and cause major acne breakouts. You do not need the skin that is hurting and dry and burning that is bad enough. Add a severe acne breakout and it could make your skin conditions unbearable. You need a serum that will refresh and soothe and calm your dry skin. To keep the skin moist is the key to having healthy-looking skin that was once dry.

Plus, you do not want to look in the mirror and see skin that looks and feels like a desert. You know that severe sunburn splotchy look that accompanies skin that is extremely dry and has not been hydrated for a long time. Typically, you do not want to pay a high price for a serum. There are serums on the market that are extremely expensive and some people are willing to pay the higher price because the serum works so well. Other people will not pay a higher price for a serum so there are middle of the road priced serums for them. There are also serums that are reasonably priced and that will probably work as well as the higher priced serums. We will review and discuss some great serums that will help your dry skin to stay moist and shine. If you are not into the shine look then there are serums that will give the skin a matte look as well. The point is that there is a serum out there that will meet your personalized needs. This article will help you to find that perfect serum

Feedback: The customer uses the product as apart of their beauty routine. The customer uses the serum in the morning to help set the makeup on her face. At bedtime, the customer applies the serum to the face and says she can feel it lock in the hydration all night long. Her face is more supple since using the product. It also gives her skin moisture and sets up the skin as the perfect canvas for her to put their makeup on. The customer is about to turn 40-years-old and developed dry patches on her normally oily skin. He tried a number of products, including paying $50.00 a bottle for the foundation, but nothing works. She had the dry patches for 5 months then she found this product. She applied it twice and it removed the dry patches. Her skin is soft and normal again. It applies easily, feels light, and it absorbs quickly. She writes that she hopes the product will help her in the next 40 years of her life.

The person is looking for the “perfect” moisturizer. She tried other products that would make the eyeliner run down the eyes after she had been at work for an hour. She applied this product and concentrated under the eye area. It helped the eyeliner to stay in place and either a little or no eyeliner ran down her face. She hopes the dry oil will absorb deep into the skin and eradicate the fine lines. These two customers rated the product 5-stars. The customer says she is only 28-years-old but she is starting to take care of her skin now. She sunbathes a lot in the summer and has suffered some surface damage on the forehead. She has some fine lines on her forehead and neck. She was skeptical about this product helping her skin. The product is helping her skin and she says the fine lines on the neck and forehead are starting to diminish. She has used it for a month and the product is making a big impact on her skin. She is no longer a skeptic about using the product. The customer says the product she will keep buying in the future and she rated 5-stars.

It contains no harmful chemicals and it is fragrance-free. Either add the product to your favorite cream and then apply this combination to the affected areas. If you want power results to apply the product directly to the affected areas. The company does not offer any type of money-back guarantee.

Feedback: The customer says she was born with rosacea (I have never heard of a person being born with rosacea) and very dry, sensitive skin. The customer would breakout in clusters of small red clusters or deep, red solo red spots. The customer has been using the product for a few days and it improved the skin. Now, after a year the client’s skin looks really good. The client spent a lot of money on this product but it has helped her so much. She said she had spent a lot of money on other products as well. The emotional toll on her has been expensive as well. She writes this product has helped her more than any dermatologist did. The customer gave it a 5-star rating. The customer does not wear makeup all that often anymore since she started using the product. The customer said the product has reduced capillaries the customer had. You need to apply a little bit in the morning and the evening.

The customer says she loves the smell of the product and that it is easy to dispense. The glass bottle protects the oil. The customer loves the product but unfortunately, it does not work for her skin type. She usually has pretty clear skin but this product is clogging her pores. She persisted in using it for two weeks but it did not help her skin. She tested it to see if the product was causing the pores to clog (she did not say how she conducted this test) and it was the product.

Serum for Extra Dry and Mature Skin

She rated it 4-stars regardless of the fact, that it did not work for her. She says she loves the product but since the product did not work for her 4-stars seems a bit excessive.

The customer says this oil did not work as well as the other oils worked for her. The smell is kind of nutty which the customer did not like. The oil did not do an amazing job on her skin like the other two oils did. She likes the oil but she doesn’t love the oil as she loves the other two oils. So, she rated this oil 4-stars. It seems this is too high of a rating based on the comments the client wrote about the product.

The customer liked the smell of the oil and she thought it was a good product overall. It reduced her acne every day but she has issues with the product. She used three drops a day and in three weeks the product was gone. The client does not know if the product was full or not when she first received the oil. She writes this is too expensive to last for only three weeks but she doesn’t know if the bottle was full in the first place so it could not have been full of oil in the first place. The fact that she used three drops may have been too much product to use in the first place. The customer rated three stars. I am not sure if the three star rating is justified.

The customer says she loves the smell of the product and it really hydrates the skin and makes it feel nice. The problem is it did not really reduce the size of her broken blood vessels. She will continue to use the product periodically though. She rated the product 3 stars. I am not sure why she will continue to use the product if it is not meeting her expectations. She recommends another product to reduce the size of broken blood vessels.

The customer says the product did not work for her acne. She says she broke out in more acne after applying the product to the skin. She applied the product 24 hours later to give the product a chance. Sure enough on the areas, she applied the product more pimples broke out. This happened from her forehead down. She does not recommend the product and she rated it one-star.

Alaffia Skin Renewal Facial Serum for Extra Dry and Mature Skin

Benefits and Uses: The product touts that it contains 100% fair trade certified ingredients. I am not sure what this certification means or the importance of it. The formula will improve elasticity and help to regenerate the skin cells and it will reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The product is designed for very dry skin and proceeds from the sales go to projects in TOGO. (Togo is in Africa.)

Feedback: This review is not clear on how this product helped the client. The client said the product was recommended to her by an aesthetician. (An expert in beauty products.) The product was applied to her skin and from a distance, the skin looked good but upon touch, the skin felt dry. The client used the product on the skin and now she says her skin is very soft and it looks nice. So which one is it is the skin smooth and soft or is it dry? The customer has not written a clear review of the benefits of the product. The customer rated the product 4-stars.

This is a negative review but it tells us absolutely nothing. The customer rates it 2-stars and writes that they do not like the product and that is all they wrote. The review is useless and will not help anyone to buy or not buy the product. The customer gives us no indication as to why they do not like the product. The review may as well not have been written. It has no selling value.

The customer is going through menopause and has taken estrogen inhibitors and these factors have made the skin very dry. The gas heart (used for a cold winter) has further dried the skin. The client writes the reviews written about the product were correct. The oil has hydrated the skin and made it soft again. The customer has rated the product 5-stars. The customer also writes the bottle is expensive for such an all-sized bottle but a little bit will go a long way.

The product has never been tested on animals and it is vegan friendly and it contains no harmful ingredients. The company will give you a full refund if you contact them and there will be no questions asked as to why the product is being returned. The company offers no time limit on the refund.

Feedback: The customer says they had hormonal acne along the jawline. They really did not want to use the product because they did want to break out in more hormonal acne. They tried the product and it removed the acne and the scarring was reduced as well. The customer loves the product but warns it burns at first a little. This is not healthy for a product to burn the skin. This customer rated the product 5-stars. This customer says the product made the skin breakout and made the skin very dry. The company contacted them and said do not write a bad review but instead contact us and we will refund the money. We are a small company and they wrote many other things in the email to the customer. The customer contacted the company twice and the company did not respond. The customer went ahead and wrote the bad review and rated the product one star. The company cannot be trusted and it is suspect that they tell the customer not to write a bad review. The company is hiding something when they tell a customer not to write a bad review.

Benefits and Uses: The product is designed for various types of dry skin. The product will refurbish the skin and make it look radiant and youthful. The company says the product will treat wrinkles and fine lines.

Feedback: The customer has oily/combination skin and is 40 years-old. The customer dispensed the product and it looked like a milky white serum. The customer applied it to the skin and it formed into a white pasty substance that was thick. The customer had to really rub it in to get it to absorb into the skin. But the product was designed to be used on dry skin. The customer said this fact was not stated on the bottle or on Amazon up to the time of the review being written. But in the product description, on Amazon, it clearly states in the product description the product is designed for different types of dry skin.
