There are many girls who don’t know how to use the serum. I can proudly tell you that the essence is the “All in one” in the skin and the fighter in the skin care products! The essence is generally “small in quantity” but “refined in quality”. It contains trace elements, collagen, serum, etc. It has the functions of anti-aging, anti wrinkle, moisturizing, whitening, and spot removal… In short, when your skin becomes very bad after a long stay up, bad mood, and long-term stress, the serum is your helper, which can save your skin 10000 times.

  1. Capsule-Vivienne Hu Hyaluronic Acid Daily Facial Serum


All Skin Types, including dry skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin

Vivienne Hu Daily Facial Serum(VHDFS)will leave your skin smooth and supple. However, VHDFS is not an ordinary hyaluronic acid; it represents the crystallization of the most advanced hyaluronic acid technology INFIHA-HYDRA. Studies have shown that VHDFS not only moisturizes, but also plays a prominent role in repairing and anti-aging. VHDFS can promote the synthesis of dermal collagen and stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid.

According to experimental data, VHDFS can increase the expression of hyaluronic acid synthase by 1.45 times, thereby increasing the expression of hyaluronic acid synthase by 1.27 times, multiplying the endogenous hyaluronic acid content. In addition, VHDFS can activate the activity of “aquaporin AQP3”, flexibly distribute moisture to all parts of the skin, and invigorate the skin’s water channels. This not only improves the transdermal absorption rate of exogenous supplementation of hyaluronic acid, but also significantly promotes the production of endogenous hyaluronic acid in the skin, external supplementation + growth promotion, realizing dual-source supplementation of hyaluronic acid, building a three-dimensional hydrating ecosystem, and promoting hyaluronic acid Skin care has entered the “micro-nano era.”


Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a long chain of sugar molecules, that is found naturally in the body. It is a major component of the extracellular matrix, the gel-like substance that fills the space between cells.

Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in keeping tissues lubricated and moist. It is found in high concentrations in the fluid that lubricates joints, in the vitreous humor of the eye, and in the skin.

  1. SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence Serum


All Skin Types, including dry skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin

Skin dullness is not just due to melanin production or pigmentation. It’s caused by “anti-aura” parameters or “skin clouds” that block skin’s aura from shining through. The GenOptics Aura Essence is designed to help clear these “skin clouds”, to bring out your skin’s aura. Powered by the one and only PITERA™ and GenOptics Aura Technology, this lightweight serum is packed with brightening ingredients and absorbs quickly to improve dullness and reduce spots caused by sun damage for clear, radiant skin. The formula—which has been reformulated to minimize the look of age spots—combines active brightening ingredients with PITERA™, which is a bio-ingredient rich in vitamins, organic acids, minerals, and amino acids that work together to enhance skin cell renewal.


GenOptics Aura Complex – A skin brightening complex containing PITERA™, Demelano P3C™, and Prunus Extract to improve the appearance of skin tone, age spots and cloudiness under the skin’s surface.

Ume Extract – A Japanese plum extract with antioxidant and anti-glycation properties. It also helps prevent the appearance of dullness.

PITERA™ – A bio-ingredient derived from yeast fermentation that resembles your skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors. PITERA™ contains over 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids to condition skin’s natural functions.

Prunus Extract – An antioxidant rich in vitamins and minerals that helps prevent damage caused by oxidative stress. When combined with PITERA™, it helps improve uneven tone for radiant skin.

Finally, I would like to reiterate that serum is not a must, but the key is to regulate your daily routine and diet. Otherwise, it is futile to use the most expensive serums.
