Clinique Smart Custon-Repair Serum ($154, clinique.com)

“This is definitely worth the splurge. It’s a three-in-one serum that helps with fine lines and wrinkles while also firming the skin and evening out the skin tone. I use it before my moisturizer and focus on any areas where I have dark spots.”—Stephanie Flor
