Hyaluronic acid. It’s an ingredient found in practically every other beauty product, and we’ve learnt that that’s because it’s key to keeping the skin moisturised.

It makes sense, then, to use a lotion that has hyaluronic acid as the key ingredient – since one of the main purposes of a lotion is to moisturise. Consider Taiwanese brand Neogence’s Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion, which is part of the brand’s key Hyaluronic Acid range (you can tell they’re big on hydration).


We recommend this for use on dry skin, since it really does moisturise deeply. Its other main functions are to maintain the hydrous conditions in the skin (so the moisturised feel doesn’t just fade away after awhile), and other skincare products are better absorbed; also, it’s mild on the skin, as it doesn’t contain any alcohol and is made with purified ingredients.

Taiwanese brands don’t appear on our radars all that often, but they do have a cult following. Lucky you – we have a full-sized 180ml bottle in the October edition of our NYLON Singapore x Vanity Trove Beauty Box to test out. More hyaluronic acid on the skin never hurt anyone.
