As temperatures plummet here at The Grooming Guide, we thought that it was time to introduce you to the benefits of serums. These liquid formulations are typically the most potent products in a skincare line, so you will be sure to see results. Each formula has a specific purpose to help with your specific skin issues, from moisturising to anti- ageing. Just don’t confuse them with moisturisers guys, as most have a thin gel like consistency. Here we have tried and tested our favourites..
