December 9, 2014 Reviewed by Marta 6 Comments

Throughout the year, I update my Five Best recommendations in their various categories, saving the best of the best for last: Five Best Anti-Aging Serums. This year, it is an especially exciting selection, as I have made some new discoveries that have wowed the Truth In Aging community. And, of course, it warms the heart to see some of 2013's best anti-aging serums staying the course. Read on to find out who made it back and who is new on the scene with the winners of my 2014 Five Best anti-aging serums.

  • MitoQ Moisturizing Anti-Aging Serum

    MitoQ Moisturizing Anti-Aging Serum ($119 in the shop) has to be one of the finds of the year and a very worthy brand new Five Best anti-aging serum. Mighty MitoQ has just one active (a turbo-charged form of CoQ10), but boy, does it pack a punch. MitoQ has transformed my neck from rough, wrinkled and sun damaged to positively buttery. And it has made inroads into those forehead wrinkles, as well. Don't just take my word for it. Read our community review round-up.

  • Sciote Omni Phyto-Cell Serum

    Sciote Omni Phyto-Cell Serum ($125 in the shop) is a very good choice for those with sensitive skin who still want a heavy-hitter. It also a great pick for those wanting peptide power. Sciote Omni Phyto-Cell majors on Matrixyl 3000, a collagen boosting peptide duo, and a peptide complex of amino acids. For those interested in the cutting edge, there's Resistem, a plant stem cell from a kind of daisy that protects the skin's own stem cells and Hyalurosmooth, a plant-derived form of hyaluronic acid. I recently introduced this serum to my nighttime regimen and find it soothing yet powerful, giving my skin a nice radiant glow.

  • Medik8 Firewall

    I have used Medik8 Firewall ($145 in the shop) on and off since 2009 and it remains a stellar performer. It, too, has Matrixyl 3000. But what really makes it a standout is the use of copper peptides, a notable repairer of wrinkles. Two other important ingredients are cysteine, which helps synthesize glutathione, one of the body's most important natural antioxidants and detoxifiers, and the powerful free radical scavenger Liprochroman-6. Firewall works for wrinkles and firming.

  • E'shee Clinical Esthetic Elixir of Life KI Therapy Serum

    E'shee Clinical Esthetic Elixir of Life KI Therapy Serum ($189 in the shop) is a beloved serum for me. I go back to it over and over, and credit it with giving my skin a firm, glossy and even look and feel. It is quite simply compatible with my skin – I said that a year ago and it remains true. The extremely unusual active ingredient is Far Infrared (FIR) Ceramic Powder. FIR regenerates collagen and may activate TGF-1 growth factors. KI also contains E'shee's signature FGF peptide.

  • Innarah Line Smoothing Treatment Serum

    The Innarah line is one of the finds of the year. Thoughtful formulas combine some unusual ingredients and a unique fermenting process.Innarah Line Smoothing Treatment Serum ($175 in the shop) lives up to its name, with a visible impact on the skin's texture. This serum is also helpful for those with dry skin, as it makes much use of phospholipids, an ingredient comprised of fatty acids that attracts and retains water. There is a good skin firming peptide, tetrapeptide-3, and Innarah's signature antioxidant, apolactoferrin. This is recommended for those that want natural skin care with some anti-aging attitude.

    I'm a skinaholic and would love to use your serum Voucelle for firming and fine lines.

    I couldn't possibly feel good about putting "a possible neurotoxin" on my face.

    I would be thrilled to try a bottle of Voucelle, as I have purchased face and body products and tools from Truth in Aging, but never a serum. I would very much appreciate receiving the opportunity to try one, as I am suffering from post-traumatic pigmentation, from a CO2 treatment. (NEVER have this done in Summer - ladies) It's been a year, and it's STILL not cleared up :( XOX

    Dear Santa,
    I've been really good this year.
    I've eaten my vegetables, done my homework, got good grades (I mean, unbelievably good grades) and made everyone happy. Never skipped washing my face and teeth before bed and was very consistent with my night serum that gave me a nice glow...
    I think I really deserve a treat!
    So this year, under the Xmas tree, I'd like to find a bottle of Voucelle from Truthinaging to try out.
    Thank you,
    With Love
    P.S. cookies and milk are in the same place, please help your self ...
