What are the best Neogen Dermalogy skincare products?
This is one of my fave Korean skincare brands. Ok, it uses a bit too much fragrance for my taste, but I can get past that. You know why?
Most Korean skincare products focus on hydration only. Neogen has that nailed down, too, of course. But it also has what it takes to prevent wrinkles, soothe irritations and fade away dark spots. It’s skincare that works.
So what should you try first? Here are the best Neogean Dermalogy skincare products, in my humble opinion:
Neogen Real Ferment Micro Serum ($38.00)
Got sensitive, easily irritated skin that gets triggered by everything? You need Neogen Real Ferment Micro Serum in your life (and I don’t use the word “need” lightly). It’s packed to the brim with every anti-inflammatory ingredient you can think of, including probiotics, centella asiatica and green tea. They help soothe redness and irritations and keep skin calm and happy. Plus, it has a huge dollop of niacinamide, a mutlitasking vitamin that does everything: it hydrates skin, strengthens its protective barrier, soothes redness, reduces the appearance of fine lines, fades away dark spots and even helps treat acne! The best part? It’s one of the few Neogen products without fragrance.
P.S. The matching essence has a very similar formula but without niacinamide. If that’s what you’re using, do your skin a favour and upgrade to the serum.

Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Water ($17.00)
Let’s get one thing straight: micellar waters are NOT makeup removers. But they’re a gentle way to cleanse skin in the morning, especially if you have sensitive skin or are too lazy to wash your cleanser off. Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Water does a great job at removing dirt and impurities from the skin without stripping it of the natural oils it needs to stay soft and supple. Plus, it’s enriched with ceramides and centella asiatica to moisturize and soothe skin during the cleansing process. It has fragrance, but if it doesn’t bother your skin, why hold it against it?
Neogen Real Flower Cleansing Water Calendula ($22.00)
Another cleansing water, but what can I say? Neogen does them really well. Real Flower Cleansing Water Calendula is loaded with soothing ingredients, including allantoin, chamomile and cucumber to keep skin soft and calm as it goes through the traumatic cleansing process. Actually, that’s not too traumatic as this water uses very mild surfactants that cleanse skin without irritation. It’s just not powerful enough to remove makeup. Use it in the morning only. By the way, this has fragrance, too.
Neogen White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop ($35.00)
Forget the white truffle. Niacinamide is the star of the show here. You know what it does by now: hydrates, soothes, fights acne, wrinkles, dark spots… The best part? It’s so gentle, anyone can use it. Even sensitive skin. Plus, Neogen White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop is loaded with all the best moisturizing ingredients: ceramides strengthen the skin’s protective barrier against external aggressors, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the air into the skin and avocado oil seals it in. If you’ve got dry skin, this one’s a keeper.
Neogen Real Cica Pads ($20.00)
Want to try chemical exfoliations but find common acids like glycolic too harsh for your skin? Try Neogen Real Cica Pads. It uses gluconolactonic and lactobionic acid, two gentle exfoliants that remove dead cells without irritating your skin. To make it even gentler, Neogen added hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin, ceramides to strengthen its protective barrier and centella asiatica to soothe. I could do without the fragrance, but it’s still well worth a try.
