We all know that face serums are crucial if you're committed to following an anti-aging skin care regimen. "Face serums have higher concentrations of active ingredients, which deeply penetrate the skin, therefore smaller amounts or even just a drop can work the whole face," says celebrity dermatologist Dr. Pie Calayan.

Given its properties, serums tend to be pricier than your daily moisturizer and cleansers. But these girls swear by the results—after regular use, of course! Below are products that's Girltalkers have tried, tested, and repurchased through the years!

1. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Complex

P2735 (20ml), P4100 (30ml), P5,800 (50ml), available in SM Aura

This cult classic (particularly popular among FN's Girltalkers) is Estee Lauder's number one repair serum. It's meant to reduce all key signs of aging.


"This can be used day or night or both times, pero I use it in the AM only. It serves as my moisturizer na rin. I think of this as vitamins for my skin. It also helps control my acne and oily skin, for some reason, kaya I can't stop using it. It's slightly expensive but a bottle lasts me five to six months on a three drops/day use," says Girltalker WickedWitchOfTheWest.
