What is a face serum?
Serums are often compared to creams, as their functions intersect. However, there is a major difference that makes these two products NOT interchangeable - the shape.
Due to its low molecular weight, the facial serum is able to penetrate the dermis and absorb it. Its active ingredients are more bioavailable (the body perceives them better), which allows you to solve skin problems “from the inside”.
Face serum has a more concentrated formula, which is actively used on “ problematic” areas: nasolabial folds, forehead, skin around the eyes, and décolleté. The texture is light, delicate, and non-greasy, with the exception of oily anti-aging serums.
How to choose a face serum?
Face serums are a universal remedy, that can be used at any age. The most important aspect, when choosing cosmetics, is to build on the problem that concerns you. At the moment, there are 4 facial serums in the IRENE BUKUR assortment:

How to use the face serum
Serum should be applied only to cleansed skin, after toning. Most often, we recommend applying the face serum under the cream, on problematic areas (nasolabial folds, forehead, skin around the eyes), or on the entire face.
In exceptional cases, for example, during the summer, serum can be applied as an independent tool in order to avoid excessive oiliness. Each of the presented serums, moisturise and nourish the skin. The most important rule: if you apply makeup over the serum, be sure to give it time to absorb.
For a more intense and deep effect, we have developed special patches and a lace mask, that has draining properties and enhances the effect of the serum. We recommend applying a couple of drops of the product, then applying patches or a mask, and leaving for 20-30 minutes.
When to apply face serum: morning or evening?
The serum should be used in the morning and evening. If it is an oily serum, such as Revital, it will be more comfortable to apply it at night. In all other cases, listen to the needs of the skin.
Can I use the face serum every day? The face serum is used on a daily basis for a more noticeable result, as the skin will receive all the necessary elements. You will notice positive changes in the skin in 1-2 weeks. Do not interrupt this ritual to maintain the result.
