How often do you get the opportunity to try out and compare products that are touted to be among the best before deciding which is the best of the best? Not very often, we’re sure. But at the recently concluded Daily Vanity Beauty Awards (DVBA) 2019, our panel of six judges managed to do so.

An annual award that celebrates products that really work, the DVBA is looked towards for its winner list that has been useful to many readers who are looking for their next holy grail.

One of the categories that the judges went through this year was the “Best Cream Moisturiser” award. What judges had to test: whether the moisturiser absorbs into skin quickly and sits well under makeup, if skin feels hydrated after use, that it doesn’t cause any reaction to skin, whether the texture feels good, and if the packaging is well-designed for easy dispensing and application.

Of the many products that were nominated and subsequently judged, one product stood out and eventually won the award: alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser.

Best Cream Moisturiser: alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser

alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser won the Best Cream Moisturiser Award (Judges’ Choice) in DVBA 2019. It is one of the brand’s bestsellers, and we’re not surprised why.

Designed to help improve skin’s moisture level affected by air-conditioning and the scorching weather, this moisturiser helps to deeply hydrate skin while locking in moisture.

One of the key ingredients that can be found in the product is a wheat-based ceramide. This active ingredient doesn’t just lock in moisture in your skin, but also helps tighten the appearance of enlarged pores so your skin looks smoother, more elastic, and plumper.

This sounds like a huge plus point given that the unforgiving tropical climate in Singapore makes pore size a recurrent concern that many people face, across all age groups.

Of course, your bottle of moisturiser will differ from other customers; yours will be further customised with ingredients that address your unique skin concerns.

Why did it win the award?

One of the key reasons why judges liked the alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser was due to its amazingly lightweight texture that absorbed quickly into skin. They said it left no sticky or oily sensation, which was a trait that many of the judges loved, especially because of Singapore’s humid weather.

If you hate moisturisers that interfere with your makeup, you’ll also be happy to know that the judges who have tried this moisturiser found that it sat perfectly under makeup. In fact, it served as a great base so makeup can glide on more effortlessly after the moisturising step!

Most importantly, judges attested that the alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser really helped to elevate the hydration level of their skin. Their skin felt more moisturised, plumper, and smoother. Those who suffer from visibly enlarged pores also see their pores looking more refined compared to before.

alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser retails at SGD95 for 50ml and SGD50 for 15ml.
