We’re way into 2021, but unlike our unhealthy habits and toxic relationships from the past, there’s one hang-up from 2020 that we can’t seem to get over: maskne. Thanks to the humid conditions under our face masks, it’s still a pressing skincare concern. But don’t worry, there are solutions, starting with good skincare.
With that, it’s good to hear that Vichy and La Roche-Posay, two trusted dermatologist-approved skincare brands, will be having their Super Brand Day on Shopee, this 19 to 21 March!
Both these brands tout well-researched, effective formulas that are gentle enough for all skin types, and we hear that some of their best-selling products will be available at promotional prices too. From 19 – 21 March, both Vichy and La-Roche Posay will be having 25% off storewide. Additionally, you may also log on between 12am – 2am on 19 March (Fri) for a special 30% off everything.
Here’s a summary of what you can look forward to:
- 19 to 21 March — Storewide 25% Off + 2nd item additional 5% Off

Read on for our top three skincare picks from each brand, along with how they can help all of us achieve healthy skin under the mask.
1. To get hydrated, healthy skin — VICHY Mineral 89 Fortifying Serum 50ml
$42.00 (O.P. $60.00), 30% off
To combat maskne, the first thing we’ve got to do is get our basics right. Our skin needs to be hydrated from within, and strong enough to withstand any environmental damage it will be subjected to. With Vichy’s hypoallergenic formula, the Mineral 89 face serum is one of the brand’s long-term bestsellers precisely because it’s able to achieve both of these superbly. It contains natural origin hyaluronic acid for a welcome hydration boost, while the 15 mineral-rich Vichy Volcanic Water strengthens and repairs the skin barrier.
2. To get rid of dark spots — VICHY LiftActiv Vitamin C Brightening Skin Corrector 10ml
$36.40 (O.P. $52.00), 30% off
Two words: Vitamin C. Another favourite from Vichy, this Vitamin C serum happens to be a holy grail for many, since it has powerful active ingredients that promise brighter and firmer skin in just 10 days. After all, Vitamin C is a highly-lauded antioxidant ingredient known to fade away dark spots, protect our skin from UV exposure, and stimulate collagen production for plump skin and fewer fine lines. With a 15% concentration of pure Vitamin C, one of the highest in the industry, it certainly sounds impressive — so much so that we even tested this one for ourselves.
3. For those with oily and acne-prone skin — VICHY Normaderm Double Correction Care Moisturiser 50ml
$29.40 (O.P. $42.00), 30% off
Now, this one’s for those pesky breakouts. The goal here is clean, balanced skin that’s both well-hydrated and well-moisturised, so you’re looking for skincare products that nourish the skin yet help control sebum production, in order to prevent blemishes from forming in the first place. Vichy’s bestselling daily moisturiser is made for oily and acne-prone skin, and contains 2% Salicylic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, and Probiotic-derived Bifidus to help with treating pimples, blackheads, and marks, as well as hydrating oily skin while regulating sebum. It’s especially well-loved for its ultra lightweight texture and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving a nice matte sheen with zero greasy finish.

1. If you’re worried about maskne — LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Duo (+) 40ml
$30.03 (O.P. $42.90), 30% off
Other than a healthy skincare regime, the solution to maskne will require a more targeted approach, which is where La Roche-Posay’s popular EFFACLAR DUO(+) is a godsend. This mattifying gel-cream formula can be applied over the entire face, or layered over troubled spots if needed. It is also known for fast results, especially if you’re looking to clear existing spots and prevent future ones from popping up. On top of reducing pimples, the niacinamide-based formula is also effective in healing inflamed spots on the skin so they’re significantly less red in under 12 hours.
$30.03 (O.P. $42.90), 30% off
Granted, not all of us have sensitive skin, but with the constant friction and humid conditions under the mask, our skin might be highly sensitised and prone to flare-ups. Here’s where the Toleriane Ultra Light moisturiser comes in handy. The calming formula has a refreshingly light texture, and contains both La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and Neurosensine to soothe irritated skin. If you feel any stinging, itching sensations or visible redness, it’s effective in relieving these signs of discomfort in one minute! At the same time, it has skin barrier-repairing qualities to ensure our skin stays protected under stress.
3. To protect your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays
— LA ROCHE-POSAY Anthelios Invisible Fluid SFP50+ 50ml
$32.83 (O.P. $46.90), 30% off
We know what you’re thinking, face masks are already the perfect UV shield aren’t they? Well, we’re here to remind you that the top half of your face still exists, which means sunscreen is as important as ever to stay protected from UVA and UVB rays which can cause skin ageing. As the brand’s best-selling product, the Anthelios Invisible Fluid offers broad-spectrum protection, and also boasts the highest UVA protection in Anthelios’ history, which is saying a lot. What many beauty insiders love about this is also the very lightweight fluid texture and an invisible finish that leaves no white cast, making it great for all skin tones.
