The Local Beauty Brand That Focuses On Multi-Tasking Moisturisers

Besides cleansing and using sunblock, one step you should never skip in your skincare regime is applying a moisturiser. Not only does it hydrate and plump skin for that K-beauty glow, it also helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, as well as strengthen skin’s protective barrier for a more youthful-looking complexion. However, with the rise of super serums and multi-tasking high-tech products, a good hydrating cream is often overlooked.

With more people looking at products with multiple benefits, homegrown beauty brand The Moisturizers Co. created a range of four different moisturisers that aim to deliver intense hydration to all skin types while treating other common skin concerns. While many moisturisers boast brightening or anti-ageing benefits, these creams place equal importance on both its effects.

According to the folks behind the three-year-old local brand, the top four skin concerns from the age group of 25–65 are pigmentation, premature ageing, sensitive skin and enlarged pores. Thus, they have decided to create their moisturisers based on these common concerns and only use botanical and clinical-grade actives in their formulas. Below, we introduce the four products to add to your beauty arsenal.

#1: Brightening Moisturizing Cream, $98
Known to be the brand’s bestseller, this serum-infused brightening cream is suitable for all skin types (especially sun damaged skin) and is formulated with core lightening agent arbutin and potent concentrations of lipid-rich oils and Vitamins A, C and E. Together, these powerful ingredients help boost radiance and ensure skin stays supple and plump for hours. It also absorbs quickly and feels weightless. #2: Cell Regenerate Gel Cream, $98
As its name suggests, this anti-ageing cream speeds up the cell regeneration process and also increases collagen production. Its key ingredient – black mulberry extracts – contain resveratrol, which is a potent antioxidant that protects skin from free radical damage that may cause early signs of ageing. It is also infused with a powerful combination of squalane and coenzyme Q10 to encourage skin repair, moisture retention and prevent the loss of elastin. #3: The Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream, $78
More commonly known as vitamin B3, this contains niacinamide, which is a skin-restoring ingredient that helps to regulate oil production and treat enlarged pores. The non-greasy cream also contains a powerful blend of witch hazel and AHA to clear sebum, tighten pores and prevent the formation of blemishes. Ceramides lock in hydration and fights against premature ageing. #4: Ultra Moisturizing Repair Gel, $78
Ideal for sensitive skin types, this gentle gel formula is formulated with soothing ingredients such as calendula, cucumber and aloe vera to repair, regenerate and provide multiple skin-healing benefits.
