Updated: Jun 15, 2022
Hopefully, you read Part 1 of this post, "Sucker for Skin Serums," especially if you are shopping for more affordable serum (less than $20). In this post, of Part 2, I will be sharing higher price tag serums ($20 or more). As I've said before, I am a sucker for botanicals and antioxidant based ingredients that are youth promising, skin radiance promoting serums! I get into a trance over the magnificent ingredients of these concentrated substances that infuse into the skin and ta-da- you have a new face! Okay, that's not actually the case, but, some serums certainly can make improvements :-)
The following 4 skin serums reviewed below are on the higher price end. Three I've purchased and enjoyed, and one is on my 'beauty wish list'! These serums are over $20. Read on, beautiful people!
Sucker for Serums & Splurging:
* Note: Many of these serums can be purchased at www.pharmaca.com, www.Amazon.com, www.Ulta.com or www.dermstore.com
Sunday Riley Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil is a serum that has beautiful ingredients! This is on my 'beauty wish list' for sure! Sunday Riley's description expresses that within this serum are "cold-pressed blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, wild carrot, black cumin, grape, and broccoli seed oils retain their delicate, rich nutrients. Healthy-looking radiance is immediately restored, as the skin is fortified with critical antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, Omegas 3-6-9, and skin-soothing botanicals. Created with 100% pure plant extracts, without synthetic fragrance, essential oils, or preservatives, to nurture even the most sensitive skin." WOW! Sounds too good to be true!

Origin's Mega Mushroom Relief Advanced Face Serum, from DR. ANDREW WEIL. I've used this product to calm the irritation and redness in my skin. Its key ingredients are fermented Chaga and Reishi mushrooms. This formula did have a soothing effect on my face, and I appreciated how light the serum was (a thin liquid consistency). Origins claim that the serum leaves the skin fortified and looking more resilient. 1 oz. $57 Find at Origins.com https://www.origins.com/product/15347/52019/skincare/treat/serums/dr-andrew-weil-for-origins/mega-mushroom-relief-resilience-advanced-face-serumm
Bare Minerals SKINLONGEVITY Vital Power Infusion Serum's creation was inspired by The Blue Zones (which I am a mega fan of)! Taking some secret lessons from the long-lived culture in Okinawa, Japan, this potion features the Long Life Herb used by locals as an essential part of their wellbeing. This infusion serum goes on very smoothly, adding moisture to the skin. Find at Amazon, 6.7 fl oz. is $51. https://amzn.to/2ThCX5y You can also go to the home site of Bare Minerals.

Here is the big spender: Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum. I purchased a small travel/sample size of this green liquid and found it to be nourishing to my skin. I love Eminence Organics as a company, using supreme clean, food-mineral based ingredients in their formulas. The only downside is you certainly pay for such supreme tonics. Start saving your pennies! This serum can be purchased at Pharmaca.com for a whopping $110 for 30ml. https://www.pharmaca.com/eminence-organics-citrus-kale-potent-c-e-serum-30ml
