Let’s be honest: the K-beauty market in Singapore is pretty saturated. From the biggest brands to up-and-coming ones, we have it all.
A K-beauty brand that is known for being both effective and aesthetically appealing? Mamonde, of course. The brand has been doing amazingly well for itself since it arrived on Singapore’s shores, with there being countless articles out there waxing lyrical about its numerous product offerings.
But which are the best of the best of Mamonde that you should try for yourself? Good question. This thought has crossed our minds more than once or twice, so we decided to do your homework for you and hunt down several Mamonde reviews to find out exactly just that.
From what we’ve gathered, these are the products that all Mamonde newbies should start with:
1. Mamonde Rose Water Toner
According to various Mamonde reviews out there, the Mamonde Rose Water Toner is a must-have when it comes to your 10 step Korean skincare routine. Not only does it have a lightweight texture that is easily absorbed into skin, it also moisturises dry, parched skin effortlessly. Oh, and apparently, it smells amazing, too!
This can be credited to the Damask Rose Water found within the formulation. Other than moisturising, it also helps soothe easily irritated, reactive skin. Apply it on after cleansing with either your fingertips or with cotton pads— either way works fine, with users claiming that it works wonders even for those who have multiple toners within their skincare routine.
The Mamonde Rose Water Toner is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD38 for 500ml.
2. Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream
Dry, flaky skin is, unfortunately, a common occurrence in Singapore’s hot and humid weather. You can combat this by including ceramides into your skincare routine. And the best in the K-beauty market right now? The Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream.
This one is particularly suited for our climate due to its lightweight texture. Most creams tend to be too heavy, weighing down on skin and making users feel greasy and or oily. Thankfully, this doesn’t, according to multiple Mamonde reviews. The combination of hibiscus and ceramides gives your skin close to 24/7 hydration, but is also light enough that it can be layered under your makeup without compromising your foundation in the slightest. Perfect!
The Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD42.
3. Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask
The Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask is one of the most popular Mamonde products out there, and for good reason! This bad boy works to brighten, soothe, and moisturise skin almost instantaneously, with the inclusion of rose petals having an antioxidant-like effect to skin.
This means that skin is purified and revitalised, calming it immensely all whilst ensuring that pores appear reduced in size. Users also love how gentle the product feels on skin, with its ‘bubbling’ ability adding a touch of fun to the process. Sounds ideal already!
With it offering facial-like results at the comfort of your own home (and at a beyond reasonable price), we’ll have to say that the Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask sounds like a total steal. Snap it up quick before they run out of stock!
The Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD28.
4. Mamonde Lotus Micro Cleansing Foam
Most foam cleansers may have the bad rep for being a little too drying, but it is something you don’t have to worry about with the Mamonde Lotus Micro Cleansing Foam. This baby leaves skin feeling clean and smooth all without being stripping, with the rich, foamy bubbles forming a moisture barrier during cleansing to prevent just that.
According to the Mamonde reviews we’ve found, users also love how it absorbs excess oil off your face, allowing your skin to appear brighter than before. Perfect for those whose complexion veers more towards oily, then! We highly recommend it for those with either oily or combination skin types.
The Mamonde Lotus Micro Cleansing Foam is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD20.
5. Mamonde Cover Powder Cushion
Cushions are practically the lifeblood of most K-beauty brands, and Mamonde is not exempt to it either. A favourite amongst Singaporean Mamonde reviews? The Mamonde Cover Power Cushion, which gives flawless high coverage without the need to supplement with concealer whatsoever. Say what?!
Yup, it is also sweat-proof, humidity-proof, and comes with a matte finish, which ticks all the boxes when it comes to being a perfect cushion for those living in Singapore. Available in four different shades, we also like how it contains a decent helping of SPF to protect you from those harmful UV rays. The only cushion you’ll ever need? Hmm, we have to say that it doesn’t sound like too much of a stretch to say so!
The Mamonde Cover Powder Cushion is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD44.
6. Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner
If you prefer your toners with watery, super light textures, then the Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner is the one for you. With it claiming to ‘spread like water’, it rolls onto skin with moisture-infused clumps that absorbs into skin instantly. Talk about weightless, right?
Users like how it settles onto skin without giving a greasy or oily feeling whatsoever, with it settling underneath makeup perfectly. It is highly recommended for daytime use, and is even to slated to be particularly beneficial for those with skin that flushes easily! Hmm, they probably didn’t formulate the Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner with Singapore in mind, but it sure sounds like it, huh?
The Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD30.
7. Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Infused with real calendula petals, the Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask contains a non-irritant, hydrating formula that helps calm and replenish the skin effortlessly. And yes, we’re talking instant reduced redness here— check out this review here if you don’t believe us!
It brightens, soothes and moisturises to boot, and users also love how a small dollop is more than enough to cover their entire face. It is suitable for all skin types, though it seems to be particularly suited for those with oily skin. Apparently, it is even considered to be a must-have, holy grail product within such circles.
The Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD30.
8. Mamonde Creamy Tint Colour Balm Intense
Widely regarded to be a holy grail K-beauty product, we can attest for ourselves as to the legitimacy of this product. Delivering on highly pigmented lip colour with a matte finish, the Mamonde Creamy Tint Colour Balm Intense glides on easily and stays on pretty much forever.
It is not too drying either, with the wide variety of shades adding to the appeal of the product. The crayon tip also makes it super easy to use, filling in lips with ease and precision despite the rather chubby end.Trust us, we’re truly not exaggerating when we say that it is a game-changer to the K-beauty world as we know it!
The Mamonde Creamy Tint Colour Balm Intense is available at all Mamonde boutiques, selected Sephora outlets, as well as at major departmental stores. It retails at SGD16.
