When it comes to looking good, I believe most Singapore women (who are interestingly the biggest beauty spenders in the region) would have no qualms about splurging on expensive beauty products that promise a flawless complexion or an enhanced appearance. Further supporting this statement, a poll conducted three years ago by market research company Frost & Sullivan had also revealed that Singapore women were increasingly willing to blow their fortunes on products that were considered a luxury. Why? I guess that’s because we often associate a higher price with higher quality, therefore higher effectiveness, and the opposite with a lower price.
However, that’s not always true. I mean, sure, there must be something special in luxury products that justifies the cost but not everything is a one-size-fits-all affair. I’ve had my fair share of disappointing experiences with higher-range cosmetic brands (especially acne-fighting products) and likewise, there are low to mid-range brands which I absolutely rave about.
Hence, with this in mind, two sisters launched Skin Recipe on 1 July 2015 after discovering some really affordable yet effective ones on one of their weekend getaways.
Represented by a tomato to reflect meaning of healthy young looking skin, Skin Recipe offers a wide selection of pocket-friendly skin and body care products that are not readily available in Singapore, handpicked by the owners themselves.
Unlike other webstores that sells products deemed to be popular by the general public, Skin Recipe only offers products which they think will be beneficial to your skin! Apart from that, all products are personally tried and tested before they go on sale to ensure their effectiveness (especially on sensitive skin) and quality. They are also guaranteed authentic as they are sourced directly from local authorised distributors.
With popular brands like Malissa Kiss, Namu Life (e.g. the widely-acclaimed SnailWhite Cream by renowned bloggers like Tammy Tay and Yutaki) and PasJel from Thailand, and Elishacoy, Hey Nature and Nature Republic from South Korea on the catalogue, Singapore shoppers are promised an array of foreign skincare fixes which previously can only be bought overseas!
P/S: There’s a sale going on now so be quick with your fingers!
As the webstore is still pretty new (less than 2 months old as of writing), it does not boast as much as others have to offer but you can expect more skin care products such as masks, lip care, eye care and other body and face related items to be listed soon!
Payment & Delivery
Local mailing charges apply but free registered mailing is provided for any orders above S$80! All prices shown are in Singapore dollars (S$).

I don’t know about you but I have an inkling that Skin Recipe is going to be the next webstore I frequent to satisfy my beauty curiosity and I’m sure it will be yours too if you have been searching high and low for a trustworthy beauty shop to supply your beauty needs 🙂
