Think Switzerland and a few associations come to mind: advanced technology and beautiful landscape. Newly-arrived in Singapore is Skincode, a brand that promises to provide you with Switzerland in a jar, through its medical grade skincare products.
Founded in 1998, Skincode carries two ranges: Essentials and Exclusive. The former consists of basic products that are so gentle, even those with sensitive will find it suitable for use. Carrying no preservatives, the Essentials range only contains ingredients that you need. The range’s bestseller is the 24h Cell Energizer Cream, which helps to stimulate skin’s cell renewal process and strengthen its defense mechanism.
I was also impressed with the Extra Gentle Skin Refiner, a night mask that removes dead skin cells and impurities so new, brighter skin can be revealed after every use.
The Exclusive range, on the other hand, is designed for anti-ageing and cellular renewal. In the range, the c is probably the most raved-about, and is affectionately called the “Cinderella” product by the brand. It’s a luxurious silky serum that offers a potent antioxidant blend to protect skin from free-radical damage. It “melts” immediately onto the skin to leave a velvety soft finish that also look radiant immediately.
For those with parched and dehydrated skin, you may find the Cellular Extreme Moisture Mask a favourite. This overnight mask is a special treat for your skin that lifts, firm and cools it. Besides quenching your skin’s thirst, it also promises to visibly plump fine lines.
Skincode products are available at the following Guardian stores: Bukit Panjang Plaza, Causeway Point, City Square Mall, Guardian Plus @ Takashimaya, JEM, Jurong Point, Marina Bay Sands, Nex Serangoon, NUS, Paragon, Parkway Parade and Suntec City.
