Probably my most exciting collab ever!

In all my years of blogging, this is probably the most exciting collaboration series I'm embarking on!

Cetaphil is a brand that's all too familiar to me - I've used their products since I was 14 so that makes it a good 16 years :scream:

I think some of you might know by now that I used to suffer from TERRIBLE teenage acne and the iconic Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser was the only facial cleanser I could use that didn't break me out further. Today, this cleanser still remains in my bathroom as one of my most gentle cleansers and my go-to cleanser when my skin is feeling sensitive or during the time of the month when I get PMS breakouts - I use it to remove light makeup too!


This first and most basic step of your skincare routine is actually the most important because with proper cleansing, we will not only be able to remove impurities and reduce dirt buildup, but it also helps to hydrate the skin and prevent the production of excess oil.

Fun fact! Did you know the Gentle Skin Cleanser was originally founded by a pharmacist in 1947 as a compounding vehicle for dermatological remedies and today about one bottle is sold every minute across the globe? Its formula - developed way back in 1947 - still holds true to tradition, without change – even to this day!


And then when I got together with the hubs and started living together, our Cetaphil collection started to get more and more extensive because as it turns out, this is THE brand that he uses himself. (Not I introduce to him one ah... he got it from his Mama :joy:) In fact if you come to our house now and take a look at our bathroom, you'd be surprised at HOW MANY Cetaphil products we already have! (That we paid for ourselves... wayyyy before this collaboration even started.)

For a guy, he strangely has dry skin (instead of oily skin - maybe it's from all that flying?) and uses their moisturiser day and night especially since we sleep with the a/c on.

By the way, did you also know that you should moisturise your skin within three minutes after a shower or after cleansing, so that it can seal in the moisture before the water evaporates, thereby helping to restore your skin's natural protective barrier? Keeping your skin properly moisturised is the key to smoother and softer skin!


And while I have been using sunscreen since forever, I forced encouraged him to start using sun protection after we got married because of our climate. Most people tend to think that sunscreen is only necessary for beach vacations but noooo, it's actually very important to protect our skin from everyday UV exposure... especially since we live so near the equator! Daily protection from the harsh UVA and UVB rays is necessary to protect the skin and prevent it from losing elasticity, forming age spots, wrinkles and getting sunburnt.

Cetaphil has recently launched their Commit to Good Skincare in 3 Simple Steps campaign to debunk common misconceptions about skincare and steps to make skin commitment easy for everyone!

Take a look at the video to find how Cetaphil’s dermatologically tested skincare range can help you achieve healthy skin in less than 10 minutes. Best of all - it really works!

Additionally, Cetaphil is giving away a 3D2N staycation at Sentosa alongside vouchers, and GV Movie cards!
