Amazon Is a Gold Mine for Skin Serums—Here are 15 Best-Sellers Starting at $6 featured image

As a beauty producer, (a great) part of my job is to scope out the products industry experts and like-minded beauty lovers are buzzing about, and where to find them. Amazon may be a convenient mega-retailer most think of for home items or tech, but it’s also a hot spot for beauty products. Case in point: the skin serum collection.

In that spirit, allow me be your guide through 15 of Amazon’s best-selling skincare serums. Ranging from vitamin C brighteners and hydrating hyaluronic acid serums to retinols and underrated wrinkle reducers, there’s something on this list for everyone.
