Beautyblender micro.mini sponges

Here’s a perfect stocking stuffer if we ever saw one. The new Beauty Blender Micro is so teeny and adorable, you’d think it were fashioned by Santa’s elves. At just 1/4th the size of its predecessor (which is about the size of a small egg), the bite-sized beautyblender is designed to help you apply makeup in the nooks and crannies of your face: your lower lash line, the inner corners of your eyes, and the sides of your nose.

Goodal Super Seed Oil Plus Skin Mist

Naturalistic Korean brand Goodal arrived in Singapore last month with a star product in tow: the Super Seed Oil Plus Skin Mist, an indispensable moisturiser for anyone subjected to the drying effects of office airconditioning. Like all of Goodal’s other products, this mist is based on raw seed fermentation from seven select seeds from the Amazonian rain forest - Argan, Jojoba, Sunflower, Green tea, Camellia, Macadamia and Olive. So not only does it smell great, but it uses healthy means to refresh your skin.

Goodal Super Seed Oil Plus Skin Mist, S$29.90 until 31 December

Goodal is available in selected Guardian stores and BHG Bugis
