it'd depends what needs, for pure hydration i like Avene hydrance light hydrating cream, simple and for everyone, if she has concerns for pigmentation perhaps she can get a whitening serum to go under first :)

I heard Bio-Essence moisturizer received quite a lot of good reviews. Keep seeing it in Cleo and whatnot. :) Also its quite cheap, so can consider - about $23 from Watsons?

Right now I'm using Clarins moisturizer for Dehydrated skin. It's a bit thick but if you don't use too much it sinks in quite nicely. But the only thing is its a bit ex.. Definitely recommend buying from Sasa rather than the Clarins counter. About $20 cheaper!

Haha Sasa is a cosmetic shop that sells many brands of make up, cleansers and toners etc.

They have a few branches, you can find one of the at Plaza Singapura. :)

i quite like loccitane's almond cream. its quite rich and soothing for the skin. but must be able to tolerate the strong almond smell.

I've been a fan of clinique's moisturisers for at least 3 years now, it's light and really gentle on the skin ( i've acne prone skin ) and it doesn't feel like it clogs up your pores or acne spots when applied.

I've tried biotherm, they're good as they've concentrated mixtures but to have continual use might be uneconomical as each bottle is pretty much around min 70 to 200 bucks.

Clinique's is the best. I have really oily skin and works well in the Singapore weather.

get a simple moisturiser and see how your skin adjust to the weather here before you get a more expensive one.

personally, avene is a safe drugstore bet..

Moisturiser

You need to see the person skin type before deciding which brand or products is suitable as people with combination skin generally has much challenge in selecting the product suitable.

I used to have the pimples problem before and spent a lot of money searching for the right products to use. Sometimes my skin reacted against the products and I have to give it away after 1 or 2 use. It is very headache as the products I bought are normally not the cheap brand as my skin does not react well.

Just want to share.
