The Caudalie Vinoperfect - Radiance Serum Complexion Correcting has been the No. 1 serum in French pharmacies since 2008, and it's not without reason! This is a cult-favourite serum known for its powerful anti-dark spot formula that has recently been improved with the brand's patented Viniferine. It's 62 times more effective than vitamin C at boosting radiance and evening the complexion.

It works for all skin types by reducing the appearance of dark spots, including pregnancy masks, acne marks, sun pigmentation and dark spots. It's also free of synthetic chemicals so it's suitable for pregnant women and those with sensitive skin.

#2 Krave Beauty Great Barrier Relief

The Krave Beauty Great Barrier Relief is a skin-soothing serum that restores the damaged skin barrier while evening out your complexion. Its star ingredient is Tamanu oil that heals wounds and eliminates hyperpigmentation. The nourishing oils and actives soothe breakouts and irritation as well, so applying a generous amount before sleeping lets you wake up to hydrated, plump and bright skin the next day.

It doesn't contain any fragrances so that earthy scent comes from the blend of Tamanu, Rosehip, and Safflower oils. There's no need to worry though, as the scent doesn't linger.

In case you didn't know, Krave Beauty was started by beauty YouTuber Liah Yoo, and her brand has gone on to become one of the more popular K-beauty brands despite being only a few years old!

Get it here at 28 USD (~37 SGD).

#3 MOSAIK’s FACE Rx Daily Replenishing Serum

MOSAIK’s brightening FaceRx Serum comes in not one but three iterations — L01, M02, and D03 — that were specifically developed for light, medium, and dark skin tones. They’re also suitable for dry, slightly dry, and oily skin, respectively. All three versions contain glucosyl hesperidin, an ingredient that helps with microcirculation and hydration. This serum encourages skin cell renewal, supports collagen and elastin levels, as well as protects the skin from environmental stressors. Introduce it to both your daytime and nighttime skincare routine for optimal results: enhanced radiance, better texture, a luminous glow, and even a noticeable improvement when it comes to your pesky dark eye circles.

And if you haven’t already heard of MOSAIK, this up-and-coming Japanese skincare line really ought to be on your radar. Founder Emi Schemmer actively rejects a “one-size-fits-all” approach to skincare, which is why their products are carefully formulated by dermatologists and rooted in a deep understanding of different skin types and tones. This serum is ultra-gentle, vegan, and safe for use by those with sensitive skin and pregnant women.

#4 La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum
