I have written these youth serum reviews because I found it so time consuming rummaging through lots of webpages and other youth serum reviews, trying to decide which type of anti-aging serum was best for me.
Reading so many different youth serum reviews just confused me even more and I found it difficult to decide which type of serum was best for my skin.

Read my vitamin C serum reviews here.
Read my glycolic acid serum reviews here.
This page is somewhat of an ‘About Us’ page, where I go into the rationale behind this website, take a look at serums, and then the types of youth serum reviews you will find here.
What is a serum?
All my life I have used moisturizing creams or lotions, so the idea of a serum was new to me.
I had to actually go online and Google – ‘what is a serum’ and then ‘what is a facial serum’, just to be more specific on what they are and whether or not a serum would be of any benefit to me.
So if you are unsure whether you actually need a serum or not, the main reason you need a facial serum is to help rejuvenate your skin.
This is because these serums deeply penetrate your skin, rather than just sitting on top of your skin like regular moisturizers. They deliver added nutrients and antioxidants where they are needed – deep within your skin layers.
Moisturizers provide more of a superficial hydration to your skin, so you really want something that delivers a deeper level of hydration to your skin, especially as we age.
This is where facial serums come into the picture and you will honestly feel a huge difference in your skin when you add a serum to your beauty routine. My skin has felt so much softer, more hydrated and velvety, since I have been using facial serums.
More about my youth serum reviews
So after finding out about how effective facial serums are in helping us to reverse the signs of aging, I knew that I wanted a hydrating serum, but I didn’t understand all of the different ingredients and which ones were best for my particular needs.
Let’s be honest, there are lots of facial oils and serums available, all very similar in their ingredients and in what they claim to do.
I knew that I wanted a facial serum that was both affordable and actually worked, but how do you choose between them?
Well, I started by Googling ‘youth serum reviews’ and then ‘top facial serums’, but found that most of these reviews just regurgitated the brand’s marketing information and didn’t provide me with any helpful information.
Also, these reviews didn’t make any comparisons between the different serums, something that to me, would have been really helpful in deciding which serum to buy.
That was the idea behind this website – to review each facial serum, categorize them and then rank them from highest to lowest .
All of the information I have used to review and to rank these serums, I have taken from each brand’s marketing information, from my own first hand knowledge of these serums, and the customer reviews on Amazon. I have also researched the individual ingredients so I can give you additional information to help you make your decision.
I have collated this information in a way that makes sense to me and hopefully to you as well. I have also created comparison tables, so you can easily skim down the tables and select which reviews to read.

Three Categories of Serum Reviews
Currently, I have put together 3 different categories of youth serum reviews:
Hyaluronic acid reviews: The main ingredient in these serums is hyaluronic acid and they focus on their intense hydrating properties first and their antioxidant properties second.
These are best for people with very dry skin whose priority is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and with the added benefit of improving the texture, feel and tone of your skin provided by vitamin C and the other antioxidant ingredients.
Vitamin C serum reviews: The main key ingredient in these serums is vitamin C, but they also have hyaluronic acid and other beneficial ingredients. These serums focus on their antioxidant properties first and their hydrating properties second.
These are best for people who want to focus on improving the texture and tone of their skin as their main priority, with the added benefit of the super hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid a lesser priority. This is why many people include both a hyaluronic acid serum and a vitamin C serum in their beauty routines, so they have the best of both serums.
Glycolic acid serum reviews: The main key ingredient in these serums is glycolic acid. These may or may not include hyaluronic acid amongst their ingredients, but I have included these serums because they have such fabulous exfoliant properties and they make a great addition to your daily facial cleansing routine.
Hopefully, I will soon add an additional category for retinol anti-wrinkle facial serum reviews.
So if you are looking for face serums that work – I hope you find this information useful and that it helps you to decide which facial serum is best for your situation.
