Cleansing and moisturizing may be the foundation of good skin, but serums are the true heroes of any routine. They’re potent, precise, and show visible results fast. No wonder it’s one of our most popular categories here on BeautyMNL. But with such high demand, our stocks fly off the shelves faster than you can hit the checkout button. We’re working on it!

In the meantime, here’s a temporary solution—we found the best alternatives to our 4 most wanted (and often sold-out) serums. Why not experiment while you wait? Scroll! If you’re looking for the Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum, try…

Wildleaf Vitamin C Serum (Best Seller), P1,190 While Dear Klairs’ famous Vitamin C continues to be the crowd-fave, this Wildleaf bestseller certainly gives it a run for its money! It’s made with a potent brightening duo of Vitamin C and Niacinamide. Together, they deliver many of the same benefits as Dear Klairs’ beloved formula: lightening acne scars, refining uneven skin tones, and fighting free radicals with a high dose of antioxidants. With daily use, this illuminating blend keeps skin pristine and totally spot-free. Sounds like a potential HG, if you ask us!

Farmstay Grape Stem Cell Whitening Ampoule, P690 If you struggle with both active pimples and post-acne marks, then The Ordinary’s niacinamide solution is your saving grace. Unfortunately, this fast-selling remedy is hard to come by. Which is why we keep Farmstay’s ampoule ready for backup! This concentrated treatment packs the same potency with a combination of niacinamide and nutrient-rich grape callus extract. Much like The Ordinary’s popular blend, it erases hyperpigmentation, reduces signs of aging, and reveals overall clearer skin. And did we mention it’s cheaper, too?

Natural Pacific Fresh Green Tea Seed Serum, P1,349 For damaged skin that’s in serious need of hydration, you can’t go wrong with Innisfree’s award-winning bottle. Luckily, we can say the same for its product twin! Its Natural Pacific counterpart contains similar skin-conditioning ingredients: green tea water and green tea seed extracts. Made to fortify weak complexions, both formulas lock in moisture for more supple, balanced skin. And in Natural Pacific’s case, it delivers all its claims within just seven days. So, why wait? Grab it now and, in one week, your skin will thank you.

Skin Genie Apple Cider Vinegar Serum with Vitamin C, E, Tomato and Aloe Vera Extract, P399 For only P180, Sooper Beaute’s serum is a powerhouse of benefits. The bad news? Customers hoard this stuff like there’s no tomorrow. But at least Skin Genie’s ACV elixir is still up for grabs! While Vitamin E is their only common ingredient, the results are basically identical. This ACV serum fades acne scarring, nourishes the skin with tomato extract, clears congested pores, and amps up the vibrance in your skin tone. No matter which serum you choose, these miracle-workers prove local products are far from mediocre.
