Every step of your skincare routine is important. Your face wash, toner, and serums should work in harmony, but don’t forget add in your face moisturizer! It locks in all the yummy ingredients you’ve applied onto your face and it keeps your skin hydrated and moisturized! We’ve tracked down some of the most effective and affordable moisturizers available in the Philippine skincare scene.
Fancy Handy’s Aloe Concentrated Face Gel has a nice light formula that lays very nicely under your makeup and it doesn’t get sticky even under the warmth of your mask. The aloe in it is extremely hydrating, and it contains antioxidants and encourages skin cell regeneration to help damaged skin. If you want something that’ll boost the benefits of aloe vera extract, hyaluronic acid is an ingredient you'd love.
Combine this with CosRx’s Aloe Vera Moisture Cream to enjoy the effects of this moisturizing combo.
Speaking of hyaluronic acid, it is an amazing ingredient to look for in skincare products. It gives your skin that nice plump and glow. Those hyaluronic acid benefits combined with marine extracts from algae and seaweed help soothe the skin. Add in Pro-Vitamin B5 that attracts and locks in moisture, which you can find in Ecococo Kakadu Plum + Rosehip Oil Face Moisturizer. It has a great combination of Rosehip Oil and Hyaluronic Acid to repair and rejuvenate your skin’s texture.
Centella formulas are great moisturizers for skincare to help with problems such as redness and acne. It helps calm down your skin and aids in killing off the bacteria that causes those zits. The Centellian24 Madeca Cream Centella Hydrating Formula has a thicker consistency that’ll help out drier skin types stay moisturized. Don’t be fooled, just because this moisturizer is thicker doesn’t mean it feels thick. It absorbs quickly into your skin so none of that sticky feeling gets left behind.
If premature aging is what you want your skincare to protect you from, making sure Vitamin E is a star ingredient in your products, and it will definitely help you with aging. It’s a great ingredient that your older relatives are familiar with. Coconut water is rising in popularity in the skincare scene because it revitalizes tired and dull skin for a glowing, dewy complexion. Shea butter is another tried and true ingredient that helps with fine lines and wrinkles so you know great anti-aging moisturizers will have a combination of the three ingredients I just mentioned. Skin Lab’s Coco Shea Hydrating Gel Cream showcases them and gives you exactly the effects you’d expect.
If you want to add a little extra something to this combo, you could also try Skin Lab’s Revitalize and Hydrate Daily Moisturizer added Moroccan Rose Oil into the mix to help soften skin texture on top of everything else!
Attention all peach lovers, we found the moisturizer to not only add a bounce in your step but in your skin as well! Momo Puri’s Gel Cream is a wonderful light peach-scented gel cream which means it has a lighter consistency than regular creams and absorbs really easily into your skin. Momo Puri’s Gel Cream features peach ceramides and lactobacillus paste which improves the skin’s barrier function to reduce acne and redness! What are you waiting for, the sweet, fresh scent is a great addition to your moisturizing routine!

It’ll help get rid of those bumps and lumps under the surface, and it will make sure that your skin keeps bouncy!

So there’s a rundown of a few great moisturizers to help complete your full-proof skincare routine! Remember though, that skincare is personal. While something might work for everyone else, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll work for you. So try out different things and see how they affect your skin.
