Serums are to skin care as Whole 30 recipes are to Pinterest boards. Vital, but also overwhelming to absorb all at once. To make the serum-selection process easier, we tapped top dermatologists, facial plastic surgeons and plastic surgeons and asked them which bottle is 100-percent worth adding to our carts.

“I love the Emepelle Serum ($175) because it contains MEP, a non-hormonal ingredient that stimulates estrogen receptors to replenish collagen and moisture levels in estrogen deficient skin.
