The most effective beauty and wellness products are often the ones recommended by doctors and are typically only stocked at clinics.
Just think about the eczema-care moisturisers that your family doctor advise you to get or the skin-brightening supplements that your dermatologist offers as a solution to serious hyperpigmentation.
You’ve used these products and know that they work. But when it comes to replenishing them, you dread it.
That’s because you’ll probably need to secure an appointment at the clinic, go through a review with the doctor, and then purchase the products while paying for a consultation fee.
We already feel the dreadful fuss just typing that previous sentence.
Here’s a life hack that you probably don’t know yet: you can actually get clinic-exclusive products without seeing a doctor – if you know exactly where to look!
Where to get clinic-exclusive products
You may think that you need a prescription to purchase clinic-exclusive products such as eczema treatment cream and beauty supplements, guess what – you don’t!
These products, while highly recommended by doctors, aren’t considered prescription medication, and are allowed to be bought off the shelves, even though they are commonly stocked at clinics because of how often medical professionals tell their patients to use them.
But we’ve come across a gem that stocks clinic-exclusive products online.
We’re talking about Glovida, an online health and beauty retailer that has been doing so for the last six years.
Glovida may have only been set up in 2016, but it is supported by a parent company that is recognised as an expert in the pharmaceutical industry and has been in business for almost 50 years.
This is why Glovida understands the market and is able to bring in clinic-exclusive products that are 100% authentic.
Thanks to its established relationships with many brand owners, Glovida is able to stock these products at affordable prices too.
Supplements are also replenished regularly due to high demand so that you’d be sure you’re getting the freshest stocks. In fact, expiry dates are clearly indicated for all products listed, so you can have peace of mind when you make a purchase.
For those who still require an expert’s input, Glovida’s in-house pharmacists can provide advice over WhatsApp messages – super convenient!
And as if we can’t emphasise enough on convenience, Glovida also offers free next-day delivery; something that customers who are purchasing essentials urgently will really appreciate.
Read on to see which popular products are available on it.
Popular products to get on Glovida
Ceradan Ceramide Skin Barrier Repair Cream
Those who suffer from eczema-prone skin or extremely dry and flaky skin will be familiar with Ceradan’s line of products.
The brand is often recommended by dermatologists to those who suffer from dry, itchy, or sensitive skin because of its patented formula that features a unique ratio of ceramides, proven to improve eczema-prone skin.
While Ceradan also carries body wash, diaper cream, and even mosquito repellent cream, its Ceramide Skin Barrier Repair Cream is definitely its standout product.
This gives relief to dry, sensitive, inflamed, and irritated skin with a compromised skin barrier, and is also safe to be used on newborns, and on both body and face.
Glovida stocks the Clinic Pack Size that you usually can only find in clinics. While its retail price is similar to what you can typically find in the market, it offers a special price of S$66 each (instead of S$68) if you purchase two units as a bundle – this is a steal that you can’t get anywhere else! Get it here.
Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Max 240
Endorsed by dermatologists and sun protection experts, Heliocare offers a line of topical and oral sunscreen that are designed to shield users from the effects of UV rays.
Of them, Purewhite Radiance Max 240, which is a vegetable-based capsule, is a popular product that many patients get from their doctors for skin-brightening results and protection against hyperpigmentation and redness.
Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Max 240 retails for S$80 (instead of its usual retail price of S$150) on Glovida, which is almost 50% off!
Duolac Derma Probiotics
Glovida is one of the retailers in the market that stocks the widest range of quality probiotics and many customers visit the site regularly for them.
If you’re looking for one that can help improve your complexion, consider this one from Duolac, which is made from natural ingredients.
Suitable for vegetarians, this contains four clinically validated strains of probiotics that are protected by a patented dual coating technology that can maximise their survival rate by 100 times, compared to regular uncoated probiotics you typically find in the market.
Duolac Derma Probiotics retails for S$47.50, instead of S$56, on Glovida. Get a bundle of three and you’ll be able to enjoy a special price of S$46.50 each.
Evolve HA 0.2% Intensive Eye Drops
Recommended by ophthalmologists, this preservative-free and contact lens-friendly eye drops are used to relieve discomfort from dry eye sensations.
Offering instant relief for sore eyes from grit, itch, and foreign body irritations, this is often used by those who have just undergone refractive laser eye surgery or have sensitive eyes.
Of course, you can also have it with you all the time if you’re spending a lot of time under the elements, are travelling to somewhere with bad pollution, or are always in air-conditioned spaces.
This usually retails for S$25, but is priced at S$23 on Glovida. Get hold of it whenever stocks are available on Glovida because this popular product is often out of stock.
Remescar Scar Stick
If you’ve gone through a surgery and are concerned about permanent scarring, chances are that your doctor would have recommended Remescar Scar Stick to you.
This product accelerates the healing process of both new and old scars arising from serious conditions such as surgery and burns, and is, of course, effective in helping to eliminate the appearance of scars caused by bug bites and acne too.
In other words, while this is often a go-to product for post-surgery patients, you can certainly use it to improve your overall complexion.
Did you know: Aesthetic doctors and dermatologists often recommend it for post-laser treatment and it is also a go-to product that obstetricians recommend new mothers to use for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
Remescar Scar Stick retails for S$32 on Glovida.
