For luxury lovers who only want the best of what the luxury organic skincare world has to offer, I’ve rounded up the best all natural hydrating serums. Some even count Hollywood’s A-listers like Emma Watson and Kourtney Kardashian as their fans. These eco-luxe serums are great for all skin types including dry, aging, dull, acne-prone and environmentally damaged skin. With hyper luxe natural and organic hydrating serums, you get the uber chic, expensive looking packaging along with the highest quality, rare ingredients you won’t find in regular serums. While I can’t say the same for the conventional beauty industry (looking at you La Mer), in organic beauty you tend to get what you pay for. Cosmetic elegance, lush textures, cutting-edge green chemistry, and high-tech natural botanicals come together in sophisticated harmony like little skincare works of art. Read on for next level hydration and deep replenishment, hyper luxe organic edition.
While luxury organic serums can be a special experience, you absolutely don’t need to shell out a ton of money for an effective serum that hydrates. Check out the best affordable natural hydrating serums that are super budget friendly here.
