The New Serum Series Our Beauty Editors Swear By
If it can win over three out of three Gritty Pretty editors, it must be good.
Despite being diehard lovers of the beauty industry, we’ll be the first to admit that it can be seriously overwhelming. Particularly when you’re looking to make noticeable changes to your complexion, understanding which ingredients do what (and how they fit into different formulas) can be like trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube.
That is, until Dr LeWinn’s introduced its new Serum Series. A trio of hardworking serums designed to supercharge your routine, you really can find a serum to suit all your skin needs. Whether it’s Hydrate (a hyaluronic acid serum), Renew (a retinol serum) or Glow (a vitamin C serum), you can trust that each serum’s unique, concentrated power-up formulation will provide targeted and defined skincare benefits.
Not only that, but the luxurious gel-like consistency means that they sit perfectly under moisturisers and makeup (i.e. no pilling) and you’re able to customise them depending on how your skin changes over time. They are also oil and alcohol-free and the omnipotent formulations give you all the benefits with none of the irritation.
Sounds too good to be true? We thought so too! Which is why we took matters into our own hands and put the trio to the test. Here, we share our thoughts…
Eleanor’s Pick: HYDRATE
“For the past month, I’ve been putting the Dr LeWinn’s Serum Series Hyaluronic Acid + Waterin Plus Hydrate Serum through its paces–on holidays where my complexion was exposed to higher temperatures and more sunlight. Currently, I’m also six months pregnant and my skin has been really loving the added boost of hydration thanks to this omnipotent skin serum. After use (morning and night), my skin feels deeply moisturised and I love that it has the ability to transform any dry or dull areas into plump and juicy skin. The formula also contains waterin plus which helps to increase skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of redness and plump the skin for a dewy complexion.”
Dani’s Pick: RENEW
“Ever since I turned 30 earlier this year, I’ve been testing out different retinol formulas. The Dr LeWinn’s Serum Series Retinol + Beauactive Renew Serum is now one of my favourites. Since trialling it for the past four weeks, my skin feels firmer, smoother and more radiant. I also love the lightweight, gel-cream texture and the fact that the uniquely encapsulated retinol penetrates the skin without irritation. This iteration also contains vitamin E which helps to nourish and moisturise the skin while the actives do the hard yards. Best of both worlds!”
Rose’s Pick: GLOW
“Now that the sun is officially shining in Sydney, I have been looking to up the glow factor of my skin. Enter: the Dr LeWinn’s Serum Series Vitamin C+ Fision Glowplex Glow Serum. Formulated with a more stabilised format of vitamin C, known as Golden C®, and Fision Glowplex, the superpowered serum works to boost skin radiance in just seven days. Can confirm, this is truly the case! I also love that it contains niacinamide to help protect the skin barrier (which minimises any active-related irritation) and hyaluronic acid to keep the skin hydrated. If you’re after a serum that targets lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and lack-lustre skin for a seriously dewy complexion, look no further.”
