10 society friends and makeup artists share their holy grail serums

What would we do without face serums? These miracle beauty products complete our skincare routine, targetting specific concerns while delivering concentrated goodness to our skin. But with so many face serums in the market these days, it can be difficult to decide what is essential, and what wouldn't be missed—ten-step skincare routines can be a chore. We ask the people who know best: our Tatler friends and Singapore's leading makeup artists for their favourites that you should consider adding to cart.

1/10 Noesa Collagen Promoter

“One of my favourite face serum is Noesa's Collagen Promoter. It contains multivitamins, Omega 3, Omega 6 from precious plant biophotons that enable cells stimulation and optimized production of new collagen, restoring elasticity to my skin. I love using it with Daily Lifting, and I like that they are hassle-free and absorb easilyI've spent less time on my skincare routine as compared to before.”

Jane Heng, socialite

2/10 La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Serum

“This illuminating serum brightens the skin and reduces the appearance of spots.”

—Dollei Seah, makeup artist

3/10 Heure Ageless Serum


“The texture of Heure's Ageless Serum is very light and not sticky at all, and I wake up the next morning seeing and feeling the smoothness and brightness on my face. My complexion felt fresher and more supple as well.”

4/10 SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic

—Keith Bryant Lee, makeup artist

5/10 Chanel Sublimage L’Essence Fondamentale


“The Sublimage L’Essence Fondamentale feels so light on the skin and absorbs quickly. It's super effective too—I see the radiance showing the next day.”

Sammi Lim, real estate specialist

6/10 Clarins Double Serum

“The Double Serum is a product I’ve had in my skincare drawer for many years. I use this every night—it’s perfect for my dry skin, especially in my air-conditioned bedroom. I don’t get oil seeds from this and I love that it absorbs fast and doesn’t feel oily on my skin. When I need extra help, I use two pumps. Otherwise, it’s one pump every night.”

—Cheryl Ow, makeup artist

7/10 La Mer The Concentrate


“The Concentrate from La Mer not only smoothes, strengthens and stabilises the skin against environmental stresses, its delicate lavender scent also calms and relaxes my mind. To me, it's a perfect stress-buster in a bottle!”

Loh May-Han, anaesthetist

8/10 Kiehl's Vital Skin Strengthening Super Serum


I usually get one to a few blemishes every week or two. Ever since I've started using this, I haven't had a breakout until a couple of weeks after I've used up a bottle. I guess the skin-strengthening claim is very legit!

Clarence Lee, makeup artist

9/10 Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum


“This is wonderful for smoothing and hydrating the skin, and it allows my foundation to just glide on with a dewy finish.”

June Goh-Rin, senior consultant of anaesthesiology and neuro-critical care

10/10 Skin Inc My Daily Dose Custom-Blended Serum


“I love the Skin Inc My Daily Dose serum. The opportunity to have your serum bespoke to you is genius. I’ve been using it for years. What I like about their collection is each time you need a refill, you can adjust to your needs since our skin can change with age, stress, climate and more.”

—Andrea Claire, makeup artist
