As the health world rapidly grows past outdated boundaries — did you say dietary fat is good and fat-free is a thing of the past? — so is the realm of cosmetics grappling to keep up. While you may be used to your nightly regimen of moisturizing cream, get ready to see a huge change to serums.
What exactly are serums?
Serums, also referred to as a booster, “target a specific skin concern,” such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, or acne. Due to this targeting technique and a concentration of active ingredients, serums pack a more powerful punch than your standard cream. This is why they are hailed by dermatologists as “one of the most effective anti-aging products” on the market. Plus, serums aren’t as diluted as creams making them quicker to absorb and therefore faster to show positive benefits!
Looking for a serum to fix a specific problem? Specificity is another one of those wonderful benefits that serums can tackle, which many creams have a difficult time with. Serums can be infused with all sorts of targeting ingredients and potent extracts to help with your specific skincare challenge! Why wouldn’t you want to try a beauty product that is lovingly referred to as facial food?
Here are a few that are plant-based and all natural facial serums available on Amazon to get you on your way to revitalized skin!
Basically, the name says it all for this facial serum. Not only does this Beauty in the RAW 100 % Natural, Organic, Vegan, Cruelty-Free Serum come with fantastic reviews, but it’s also organic, non-comedogenic, vegan-friendly, certified cruelty-free, and focuses on using plant-based, minimally processed, raw ingredients. Beauty in the RAW uses a unique blend of omega-6 fatty acid rich, cold-pressed hemp seed oil and wild-craft plant extracts that are free of gluten, preservatives, artificial fragrances, and parabens. This blend focuses on restoring the skin barrier, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrating, softening, smoothing, and promoting skin cell renewal, all lending to a healthy and youthful glow! A 15-milliliter bottle costs $33.00.
Becky Meadows says “I love that this Beauty in the Raw Bio Face Serum Oil has wonderful Organic ingredients! I’m am in love with the Hemp oil, and the light fragrant notes of Frankincense & Lavender! My skin has become softer and definitely feels more hydrated after using several weeks now. The consistency is nice, it’s like an oil to me more than a serum. I love to use it more at night, to let it absorb more deeply. My skin looks dewy & brighter in the morning. A little will go a long way; so even though it’s a small bottle, it’s still lasting me. I’d recommend this to all skin types, especially sensitive, dry and aging skin.”
This Aya Natural All Natural Face Serum Moisturizer uses a collagen-boosting, ultra-moisturizing, cruelty-free, and vegan-friendly blend of plant-based ingredients.

Stephany Cruz says “Best product I have ever purchased for my face! Not only is it vegan but it helps my skin feels extremely soft and glowing. My BF loves touching my face and I constantly get compliments on my skin. I have the face cream and night cream as well. Love the products no need to wear make-up, clears my skin, keeps me looking young. I really hope the natural vegan organic ingredients don’t change and I will. Continue to purchase these products.”

A trusted and fun-loving brand, this Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum harnesses the healing powers of vitamin C in an all-natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and GMO-free formula. Mad Hippie prides itself on scoring a safety rating of 1 by the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep. This blend focuses on healing while diminishing discoloration and reducing blemishes. A 1.02-fluid ounce bottle costs $27.19.
Bee W. says “I’ve been seeing issues in my face as I’m getting a bit older (mid-30s, AA) that I do not approve of. One of the new products I’ve started using is vitamin c serum and this Mad Hippie brand is perfect for me. I’ve noticed a significant brightness in my skin (including under my eyes which were a bit dark) that is lasting where before using this, any dullness would come and go. Mad Hippie is cruelty-free and a more stable version of vitamin c. Directions say to use day and night and that the 1oz is a 30day supply, however, I used for 3wks twice a day before changing to once a week (bc I started to implement other products into my routine) and see that the supply is a minimum of two months. So, a decent value. I’m very happy with my purchase, will purchase again.”
This list would be remiss if it didn’t include at least one product from the environmental-friendly, vegan-registered Poppy Austin company.

WildChild says “I love my Poppy Austin Vitamin C serum. In the few short weeks, I have been using it I have noticed that my blemishes are clearing up and my skin looks smoother. I think my sun damage is improving too. It was working wonderfully so I will be ordering another one to replace the one that spilled. Looking forward to trying other Poppy Austin products.”
Vegan and cruelty-free hyaluronic acid is one of the best natural hydration ingredients available and luckily Poppy Austin has a wonderful, all-natural blend in this Hyaluronic Acid Serum for Skin by Poppy Austin.

Londonfarmer says “The hyaluronic acid has done wonders for my skin. I use it in the morning and at night. I use three small pumps to cover my face. I also use rose water with this product as suggested. Since my purchase, after two weeks I added the Poppy Austin face cleaner and the Poppy Austin mask. I am looking to add the rosehip oil to my skin regimen as well.”

starlight 1701 says “I really love the natureglo vitamin c serum and how effective it has been improving my acne and dark spots. I love that this is an organic product, that way I can be sure I’m not putting any harsh chemicals on my face that will end up doing the opposite of what I want this to do in the long run. Also, many serums tend to feel sticky on the application so it was a nice surprise that Natureglo, is light, easy to apply and absorbed very quickly (I have a toddler so in the morning time is of the essence…lol). I’ve tried so many other serums in the past and happy to have found a keeper and will stop wasting money on products that don’t work. Can’t wait for the company to come out with other facial products.”
