Like many girls, I was not always sensitive to the more subtle changes of my skin condition. I could still remember the day when I suddenly became aware that my T-zone is no longer as oily as before. After that, I switched from shopping for skincare meant for combination/sensitive skin to skincare catering for “normal to dry skin”, “sensitive dry skin” and anti-ageing skincare.

So dryness was the first sign of ageing for me, way before more obvious signs of skin ageing showed up. Unfortunately, I hate skincare that leaves a sticky residual, which is rather typical of skincare meant for mature skin. Richer skincare sits uncomfortably on the skin surface, especially when the weather is warm and humid. I am sure many women in Singapore share my sentiments.
Although I adore oil-free skincare, I worry that they are not hydrating and nourishing enough, as they are typically targeted at younger and oilier skin types that don’t have the same skincare concerns that I have.
So I am also constantly on the lookout for anti-ageing skincare with a light texture that doesn’t irritate my rather sensitive skin.
Hydrating and anti-ageing ingredients are also necessary to keep wrinkles and saggy skin at bay. Good news is, I think I might have just found it in Porcelain Intensive - HA+ Hydrating Serum ($198,30ml).
I was happy to learn at the official launch of the serum earlier this week that this hydration powerhouse suits all skin types, including oily, dry, eczema-prone and even sensitive skin like mine that has anti-ageing needs.
The multitasker stabilises sensitive skin, stops signs of premature ageing in its tracks while deeply hydrating and reducing acne breakouts, all thanks to the four customised complexes that include multiple powerhouse ingredients.
It is little wonder that first batch of 2000 bottles were snapped up within 6 weeks of its soft launch, much to the surprise and delight of Pauline Ng, Founder and Managing Director of Porcelain.
The four customized complexes include:
- Anti-Acne, Anti-Bacterial Blend
Lactobacillus Ferment (Probiotics) conditions skin and counteracts acne bacteria to prevent breakouts.
- Sensitive Complex
Aloe Vera and Cucumber calm the skin. Elderflower extract contains powerful antioxidants Vitamins A & C and will soothe even the most vulnerable skin that has undergone harsh aesthetic procedures such as laser treatments.
- Anti-ageing Complex
Counters premature ageing with nutrient-rich Wakame (seaweed) extract, which prevents cell degeneration, repairs skin, improves the appearance of wrinkles and reduces redness.
Glycosaminoglycans help maintain and support collagen and elastin structures.
- Deep Moisture Complex
Dual-chained Hyaluronic Acid in the formula is a super moisture magnet that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, as well as four hydrating ingredients - Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Polyquarternium-5, and Glycerin.
Porcelain Balance- Daily Cleansing Gel
Fans of the existing range of this local cult skincare brand may also like to know that the new Daily Cleansing Gel ($59,120ml) launched on the same day is actually an improved version of the discontinued Balance Deep Cleansing Gel.
Containing coconut extracts, AHA and BHA, it effectively flushes out impurities in the pores while maintaining the essential skin moisture.
