Everyone needs a good moisturiser. It is vital for healthy skin, and keeping your skin adequately moisturised can help to prevent a whole host of skin issues such as excess sebum, dryness, signs of ageing and even acne

The tricky part, however, is finding a moisturiser that works for your skin type and lifestyle. For most of us, because of Singapore’s hot and humid weather, we tend to gravitate towards lighter, fast-absorbing textures. Those with sensitive skin would want a formula that is free of alcohol, fragrances and scents, while those with fine lines might want something that is richer and heavier. 

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by choice, which is why we’ve made things easier for you by trying a whole bunch of moisturisers and listing down our absolute favourites for different skin types, concerns and budgets. 

Read on for our favourite moisturisers that you can get in Singapore in 2022!
