If you’re looking to target a specific skin concern, serums are your best bet. After all, there’s a reason they’ve exploded in popularity in the past couple of years. Skin care in general is experiencing a boom, as many people are in perpetual pursuit of a clear, poreless complexion to look great, even filterless, on Instagram. A good serum added to your regimen can do a multitude of things, and this one from Biopelle is designed to impart more youthful skin.

Featuring hero ingredients vitamins C and E, Biopelle Tensage Intensive Serum 40 is designed to reduce and prevent visible signs of aging. It contains SCA growth factors derived from snail secretions, which help regenerate skin tissue by stimulating cell growth to smooth wrinkles, amp up collagen and elastin and maintain moisture levels in the skin. It’s also a favorite product among experts. “BiopelleTensage Intensive Serum 40 is the key ingredient in my signature Escarglow treatment. The reparative benefits of the SCA penetrate deeper into the skin with micro-needling for a more radiant and youthful complexion. My patients love the luminous glow it gives their skin,” says New York plastic surgeon Matthew Schulman, MD.

The ampoule packaging concept is popular in Europe, but is making its way stateside more and more. The single-use dose makes application a breeze and it’s much easier to pack your skin care paraphernalia for a trip when you can simply toss as many days’ worth of your serum into your carry-on. It absorbs quickly and makes my skin look luminous and more rested almost immediately. I also used it to help my skin recover from a peel and it made a difference with regard to recovery time.

This serum yields a pleasing texture, which is soothing to my skin. I applied it every morning post-cleansing and before my moisturizer. I’m a regular user of vitamin C– and E–infused serums, and this one left my skin looking especially glowy. After a week of use, I noticed my skin’s texture smoothed out a bit, while discoloration and hyperpigmentation were less of a concern. My winter-ravaged skin is almost always flaky around my nose, and this is one of the few serums I’ve tried that really improved the dryness without my resorting to slicking on an occlusive balm. Most impressive of all was this serum’s effect on my neck lines (tech neck, the struggle is real), which look much less noticeable after the 10-ampoule dosage. I used the serum every few days, and will continue to incorporate it into my skin care regimen once a week to maintain the results.
