It’s been awhile, crocodiles. I’ve disappeared for a couple months but am back, better than ever! Obviously, as per the title of this post, I’m about to give you the full shabaaammm on Recherché Skincare.
So Recherché is a 100% sustainable plant-based skincare brand, with no synthetic fragrances, artificial colorants, alcohol, parabens, formaldehyde-forming preservatives, silicones and no animal testings. It is suitable for sensitive skin and is also pregnancy-safe. Best part? Everything is MADE IN SINGAPORE. Can I get a whoop-whoop? #supportlocal
All jokes aside, since Recherché’s products are made here, you can rest assured that they meet all high level quality and regulatory standards required by Singapore’s Health Science Authority so it’s definitely a skincare you can trust.
I’m just gonna dive right in and introduce you guys to the full range of Recherché products, share my personal opinions on each and talk favourites as well so if you’re interested, keep on reading.
Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse (150ml)
Recherché’s Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse does away with harsh chemicals and replaces them with natural, skin-friendly cleansing agents derived from amino acids, which are natural building blocks found in skin that help to promote cellular repair and rejuvenation.
This is my favourite product out of the series because it smells amazing and leaves my skin perfectly clean, bright and smooth without stripping it of the natural oils. If you want to give a product a try before deciding whether the range is worth investing in then I’d highly recommend this!
Revitalising Tonic (120ml)
This is essentially a toner and toners never really work on me because of how sensitive my skin is. I gave it a one-star rating as I started breaking out after using the full range and I believe it was too much for my skin. But having consulted the professionals at Recherché (they man their social media accounts 24/7 so you literally can ask them about the products at any ungodly hour and you’ll get answers – super amazing service!), I proceeded to cut this, and the Serum, out of my routine. All the redness then disappeared within a week.
Nourishing Skin Cream (30ml)
I’ve tried lots of skincare brands that boast about the use of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) but did you know that HA itself does not really work because its molecular size is too big to be absorbed and penetrate the human skin? Recherché uses its nanotechnology to encapsulate the HA molecules, such that it is small enough to penetrate the human skin where it is time-released over 8 to 10 hours for maximum absorption.
Here’s another top pick by yours truly, a recommendation with a four-star rating. The cream is lightweight and effective in keeping my face hydrated throughout the day. Win!
Cell Repair Lift Serum (30ml)
This was the other product the team asked me to strip from the routine as I think it was a little too heavy for my skin. Historically, I’ve never needed a serum and so my skin was probably mad at me for lathering on too much product (lol, sorry). But don’t let this stop you from trying, especially if your face gets dry throughout the day. The only downside for me would be the scent to this serum as it isn’t great.
Protective Hydrator (30ml)
And we wrap things up with my final favourite! What I love about this is how light weight the product feels during and after application. It’s the perfect make up base that also protects you from harmful sun rays as well as blue light and infrared from your tech devices. You can use this both in the morning and at night cos let’s be real, you’re usually still scrolling through your phone right before calling it a night no?
So there you have it – the full lowdown on my experience with Recherché Skincare. I hope this was informative enough for you to give it a shot, especially if you’re pro-Singapore like I am, heh.
