If you fall into the latter category, you're in the right place. We've done the work for you, scouring the internet for the best anti-aging serums formulated with natural and organic ingredients.

One of our favorites, Farmacy's Filling Good Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum uses natural and effective ingredients like encapsulated thyme to restore firmness.

This hyaluronic acid-powered serum plumps skin to minimize the look of wrinkles, with a side of hydration. Encapsulated thyme works as a lipo-filling active ingredient to combat smile lines and crow's feet while vegan collagen peptides support the skin barrier. The cocktail of ingredients works together to penetrate the skin and deliver effective results. This serum is ideal for normal to dry skin types, restoring firmness, and addressing dullness or uneven texture. Shoppers say it feels great on the skin and seems effective, but the smell may be a bit off-putting.

This serum from Herbivore combines bakuchiol with exfoliating polyhydroxy acids and botanicals to smooth and hydrate skin.
