When it comes to personal grooming products, most guys will settle for common essentials such as facial cleansers and moisturisers. But face serums? Not really, given the fact they are commonly associated with women. However, in today’s image-conscious era, there are plenty of face serums that are specially designed for men; most of them are unisex as well.

Face serums are highly absorbent and contain various ingredients that help to repair moisture while hydrates and refreshes the skin. That being said, here are the seven best men’s face serums according to your needs and skin conditions.

1. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Best night serum for men

This oil-based serum by Kiehl’s contains a lightweight formula with vital ingredients such as omega-6 fatty acids. It also contains squalene - a natural emollient that helps boost skin moisture.

The serum absorbs instantly into your skin overnight by entering into the repairing and revitalisation stages, respectively. Your skin will feel refreshed the following morning. Don't worry about potential redness or itchiness upon application as this serum is paraben-free. 

You do not want to associate your facial skin with words like tightness, rough and scaly. However, if you happen to face such skin condition, then you should aid it with Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturising Serum Concentrate.

This hydrating serum contains 15% glycerin and shiso leaf extract. They work to help retain moisture within your skin's barrier. Use it twice a day to see results.
