#Bagaholicbébé: 4 Local Skincare Brands To Know This National Day


There’s no better time than National Day to discover some under-the-radar Singaporean skincare brands to pamper your skin with. And because they’re homegrown, you can trust that they understand your skin’s needs.

From minimalist routines for the time-strapped to products formulated for those with oily and acne-prone skin, here are four local beauty brands you should get to know.

01 – Oh Hello Bae
As they say, it takes one to know one. And Oh Hello Bae’s co-founder Rachel Wee knows exactly how tough and confidence-knocking the journey to treating acne can be. Having acne for 10 years sparked her dive into the science of skincare to create products especially for acne-prone skin.

Backed by science, the cruelty-free clean brand offers uncomplicated products for sensitive skin. They focus on strengthening skin’s barrier and maintaining its acid mantle.

Must-try: Oh Hello Bae’s Acne Eraser Blemish Treatment (SGD68) to banish pesky spots while calming inflammation and regulating oil production. It’s infused with acne-fighting ingredients like willow bark, pineapple and licorice root extracts. OH HELLO BAE

02Sigi Skin
While taking a beauty course in Seoul with renowned makeup artist Jung Saem Mool, Sigi Skin’s founder Xenia Wong realised glowing skin was not achievable through makeup alone. Instead, it all starts with skincare. Thus, the brand was born.

Guided by its ethos that ‘healthy skin is happy skin’, its multi-beneficial formulas harness superfood ingredients. The likes of acai, avocado and kale act to bring skin to a happy place.

Must-try: Sigi Skin’s Idyllic Fields Daytime Moisturiser (SGD78),to rebalance and restore skin’s barrier. The waterless daytime moisturiser features a soothing blend of oats, polyglutamic acid and matcha extracts. SIGI SKIN

03Two Halves
Riding on the concept of yin and yang, this vegan-friendly brand takes a holistic approach to beauty. Another two halves behind it are mother-daughter duo Jo and Ashley Yong.

If you’re constantly strapped for time and require minimalist yet effective routines, then Two Halves is your answer. The brand offers restorative all-in-ones that strive to bring balance back to stressed-out skin.

Must-try: Two Halves’ Better Balance Soothing Hydration Essence (SGD85) delivers anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing benefits. The potent blend of botanical extracts is also brimming with antioxidants. TWO HALVES

04Want Skincare
For thoughtful products that give back, there’s Want Skincare by Winona Tan. Since 2016, the brand has been creating ethical skincare using fairtrade and sustainably sourced ingredients.

And because the brand wants users to enjoy pure and natural formulations, its botanical- and mineral-infused products are waterless and free of nasties and synthetic ingredients. Moreover, every purchase helps local communities and women via cooperatives in Bali, Benin and Indonesia.

Must-try: Want Skincare’s The Face Oil (SGD49) contains pure botanical oils, vitamins A, C and E and essential fatty acids. It promotes skin regeneration and prevents free radical damage for hydrated, glowing skin. WANT SKINCARE
