No matter how oily your skin is, or how humid the weather in Singapore can be, it’s still important to moisturise the skin. You can find out more facts and benefits of moisturisers in our article 7 things we bet you didn’t know about moisturisers. While it’s important to invest in skincare, it doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank! Here are five moisturisers under SGD50 that might work well for your skin and definitely for your pocket.
1 . Bioderma Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30 PA +++ (SGD49.90)
Bioderma will be launching a new and improved version of their current Hydrabio line. In particular, they will be introducing three new moisturisers that are formulated with the new emulsion base technology which helps the product to seep deeper into the skin. Here are two of them.
For sensitive and dehydrated skin
With this moisturiser you don’t have to go the extra step of putting on sunscreen because it already has sufficient sun protection in it! If you wear makeup on an everyday basis, this product also acts as a makeup base as the formula has a blurring effect, which helps to cover micro-wrinkles and imperfections.
2. Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Créme (SGD41.90)
For normal to combination sensitive skin
As suggested by its name, this moisturiser has a gel-like consistency, making it more lightweight than the Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30 PA+++. This would work better for those who have oily skin, or for those who prefer a more lightweight formula.
The great thing about these two products is that they come in a pump tube form, which is not only hygienic but also easy to take along in your gym bag, or for travel.
The new Bioderma Hyrabio range will be available at Watsons, Guardian, Unity, Robinsons and John Little from April 2016.
3. Etude House Moistfull Collagen Moisturiser (SGD32.90)
As we all know, collagen is what gives our skin its bounce and elasticity. It’s been scientifically proven that collagen as a molecule is too big to penetrate into the skin, this product claims that it has “very fine” collagen molecules that can do so. Our editor has reviewed this moisturiser and from her experience, she noticed that her skin looked more hydrated after using it for just three days! You can read her full review here.
You can get the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Moisturiser at all Etude House stores here.
4. Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturiser (SGD18 – SGD20)
For sensitive, acne-prone skin
Cetaphil is a well known brand known to be really gentle even to the most sensitive skin. It’s fragrance-free, has SPF 15 and is good to use under makeup as well.
You can get Cetaphil products from Watsons or Guardian.
5. ORBIS =U Day Memory Moisture SPF20 PA++ (SGD44)
For dehydrated skin and sun protection
The Orbis =U Day Memory Moisture is a two-in-one product that treats dehydrated skin and protects it from the sun at the same time. Those with very oily, or oily combination skin – rejoice! This is because the Japanese believes in treating skin with products that are 100% free from oil, so you don’t have to worry about this moisturiser being too heavy or thick for you.
You can get ORBIS products at their stores. See locations here.
