The Do-It-All Moisturiser Busy Girls Need

Avène’s new Aqua Creme-in-Gel is more than just hydration


You’re rushing to meetings, running to your fitness classes, and catching up with your pals. When do you find time for your beauty routine?

We don’t blame you. We know maintaining a skincare routine when you lead a hectic lifestyle is tricky. And amid your packed schedule, you may neglect to moisturise your skin, leaving its protective barriers exposed to pollution and the elements. Over time, as collagen and lipids weaken and break down, skin becomes dry and flaky and starts to appear dull.

Time to cue the time-and-face-saving all-in-one moisturiser for busy girls: Eau Thermale Avène Aqua Cream-in-Gel.

Originally formulated for the Japanese market, this multitasking marvel is poised to become the go-to for women in other parts of Asia. Plus, it’s perfect for our weather too! Developed for sensitive skin of Asian women, this unique cream-in-gel combines the luxury of a moisturising cream with a melty lightweight aqua-gel texture.

Here’s what the Eau Thermale Avène Aqua Cream-in-Gel can do:

#1 It deeply moisturises

This cream-in-gel contains active ingredients that provide intense hydration so skin can better retain moisture for long-lasting suppleness.

#2 It mattifies skin and keeps sebum levels in check

The lightweight moisturiser absorbs quickly and is perfect for Singapore’s humid weather. Enriched with pumpkin seed oil to mattify, it keeps the skin’s sebum production levels under control so you won’t have to worry about looking like a greasy mess.

#3 It evens out the skin tone

Uneven skin tone, freckles and age spots will be a thing of the past. The moisturiser contains myrtus extract that supposedly evens out skin tone for a flawless complexion over time.

#4 It is chock full of skin-loving antioxidants

Formulated with a patented antioxidant, pre-tocopheryl, the cream-in-gel protects skin against free radicals and air pollution so you’re ready to face the day.

#5 It is perfect for sensitive skin

Infused with the brand’s popular Avène thermal spring water, the moisturiser soothes, refreshes and softens all at once. Plus: It is non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic, making it perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Eau Thermale Avène Aqua Cream-in-Gel, $49.90, is available at major retail stores as well as Watsons and Guardian.
