EHA Skincare is a home-grown (Singaporean) brand that has a simple albeit effective approach to healthy skin. Their products are fragrance-free, and therefore safe to use even for those with sensitive skin. They’re also non-comedogenic, which means they won’t block pores and cause breakouts.
The range comes packed with the benefits of a lot of natural ingredients like vitamin E, plant collagen, evening primrose oil and seaweed extract.
Made in Japan for the humid asian climate, especially Singapore, each of the products in this range are extremely light-weight and don’t leave your skin feeling sticky.
The Moisturising Gel has a water-like texture that melts into the skin and forms a barrier that keeps skin hydrated and protected without the greasiness. Its also suitable for those with acne-prone and oily skin, due to its water-like consistency – and can be used (according to the instructions) in place of a primer.
The Hydra Serum is a very recent launch by the brand and is made with high grade hyaluronic acid, a tell-tale sign of this can be seen in its stretchiness and viscosity. The serum locks moisture within the skin, keeping it deeply hydrated and moisturised, without any heavy or sticky feeling. In fact, it feels literally like water and absorbs instantly.
The EHA Sunshield 24hr is one of their top sellers for so many reasons. Unlike traditional sunscreens, this does not need to be re-applied every 2-4 hours (unless you sweat so profusely it gets washed off, or you decide to go swimming) and it doesn’t leave an unattractive white cast upon application.
Instead, this lightweight, slightly tinted (think super-sheer) sunscreen is applied by gently tapping a pea-sized amount onto the face and neck. It keeps skin cool and protected for the whole day long. Because it is so lightweight and non-greasy it makes sun protection so much more bearable, especially for those of you who can’t stand the stickiness of regular sunscreen.
EHA Skincare is located at #03-28 Shaw Centre. To learn more about the products, stay tuned for our Tried & Tested video which will be coming out later this month.
