Do you know the difference between face oil and serum? Knowing the difference could mean knowing which one is the perfect fit for you, and which one would be a total disaster. If you dont, read on to find out. If you do, still read on, because you can never know enough.
Serums have a watery, gel-like fluid consistency. They are made from a high concentration of high performance ingredients, and very small molecules, so the skin absorbs them quickly and deeply. This allows them to reach those deeply buried skin layers that are hard to reach with simple moisturisers. This deep penetrating ability enables them to work wonders on your skin and make it look more youthful and hydrated. Serums tend to absorb into to the skin more quickly than face oil and is an ideal fit for those looking for quicker and more lasting results. Here is a list of some of the best face serums in the market right now. Scroll Down to find out which ones are worth the buy.

Face oil is usually enriched with a blend organic oils which benefit our skin in various ways. Facial oils usually contain plant extracts and essential oils. These oils help maintain a moisture barrier and to keep our skin perfect and balanced. They also help to protect it from environment population which can lead to dry, acne and ageing skin. The main difference between serums and face oils is the size of its molecules which are much larger in face oils and so face oils only penetrate only the surface layers of the skin. Face oils are perfect for combination and dry skin.

So how do you choose?
Both serums and facial oils can serve the purpose of moisturising, but it’s all about choosing the one that will work for your skin type and skin goals. If you want brighter, more even, wrinkle free, skin you could use a serum. If you want to simply deeply moisturise the skin go for an oil. If you want benefits of both, layer these appropriately from lightest to thickest consistency so that your products have a chance to absorb properly.
