If you’re a fan of Singapore brands, you would have heard of Skin Inc. The skincare brand was one of the first to use Big Data in its product innovations, which means everything it launches is something its customers have been rallying for.
While it’s most well-known for iconic serums that are customisable to your individual skin condition, Skin Inc also offers pre-mixed serums that contain the best combination of active ingredients to address skin concerns from anti-ageing to brightening.
The new My Daily Dose of Armour was born because 52 per cent of Skin Inc customers suffer from acne, enlarged pores and sensitive skin.
The key ingredients include vitamin B3+ (a combination of vitamin B3 and pro-vitamin B5) to reduce excess oil production, tighten pores and target blemishes, licorice to soothe skin and keep pigmentation at bay, and ceramides that boost skin resilience to keep it healthy. It also contains a glycerin base to attract and lock in moisture to prevent dryness.
My first impressions
I was looking forward to trying Skin Inc’s My Daily Dose of Armour because as luck would have it, I welcomed two new pimples (P1 and P2) on my face a day before the serum arrived at my home.
The green gradient bottle makes me think of army gear, which is rather apt since I’m going to be doing battle with my blemishes. The coloured capsules in the bottle are the active ingredients – white for vitamin B3+, purple for licorice and blue for ceramide, which have been encapsulated to maintain their potency.
Prepping to use it
The directions for My Daily Dose of Armour state that three to five drops should be used each time. I end up using four, which is sufficient to cover my face and neck.
Over the days, I start playing a game each time I use the product, trying to ensure that I get all three coloured capsules in every drop – sometimes I win, sometimes I don’t. But when you’re stuck at home because of circuit breaker, you do what you can to keep yourself entertained.
For optimum results, you are advised to pair My Daily Dose of Armour with Skin Inc’s Facial in a Flash – Pure Revival Peel to slough off dead skin cells and prep the skin, Pure Deepsea Hydrating Overnight Mask to hydrate and brighten, and the Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light++ with its Nasa-inspired LED light therapy to get skin brighter, blemish-free and youthful-looking.
However, for this review, I chose to keep the focus on the new serum and incorporated it into my existing skincare regimen to see how effective it is.
