The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% ($6.80), Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane ($9.60), Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% ($5.90), and Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% ($7.90)

I have thoroughly tried four more serums from The Ordinary, and these are all under the $10 mark. Two are definite favorites from The Ordinary line, and two were somewhat disappointing.

When I ran out of my last serum, I decided to venture over to Whole Foods to see if they had any options that were reasonably priced. Serums can be an expensive skincare step, but as luck would have it the Andalou Naturals brand was on sale and they had a few different serum options at a pretty reasonable price point. I picked up the age defying Fruit Stem Cell Revitalize Serum to see if it could help out my fine lines which have started to bother me more over the past year or two.
