Hera UV Mist Cushion

Hera UV Mist Cushion

The new and improved UV Mist Cushion has been reformulated to include a unique Powder Ultra Fine Particle Dispersion and Color Filtering Technologies as well as a Moisture Radiance Complex so that you not only achieve an even coverage but that lit-from-within dewy glow too. And it now comes in two variants - Cover and Ultra Moisture, and in six shades each.

Just a word of caution though, the finish can be a little too dewy if you’ve got an oily complexion, so dust on a little loose powder over to help tone it down a little.

$68, available at Hera stores and counters.

Nivea Rose Water Micellar with Oilr

Removing makeup has never been so easy. This bi-phase micellar water efficiently and gently removes all traces of dirt and makeup - yes, even waterproof mascara and liner, and leaves skin feeling clean and fresh. The rose water also helps tone and hydrate the skin, making this a fuss-free cleanser-toner-hydrator in one; perfect when you’re feeling lazy.

$19.90, available at all personal care stores.

Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum

Especially for night-time use, it helps encourage skin renewal and repair while you sleep, erasing the appearance of fine lines, skin roughness and dullness thanks to the inclusion of retinol. Together with the use of ceramide, it keeps skin smooth and well-hydrated at the same time. 

Each capsule is a singular dose and is sufficient to cover the face and neck. While it has a somewhat silicone-powder texture, it absorbs quickly and left our skin silky smooth after. Our skin felt supple and looked brighter the next morning.

From $81 (bottle of 30 capsules), available at all Elizabeth Arden counters.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette

Twelve shades ranging from a soft pink to a warm plum and deep burgundies, and in a variety of finishes - matte, shimmer and metallic, this palette will give eyes that wow you’re been looking for. And if you’re worried that red tones on the eyes might make you look like you’ve been crying for days, don’t. These colours are easy-to-wear, blends like a dream and surprisingly flatters Asian skin tones.

$83, available at Urban Decay and Sephora stores.

Sabon Ocean Secrets Anti-Pollution range

The full range consists of 10 products that have been specially formulated to protect skin against harmful external environmental damages that can cause premature skin ageing while strengthening skin’s natural defences for a healthy and youthful complexion.

This is thanks to a combination of Laminaria Digitata Seaweed that removes pollution particles and protects the skin, and Marrubium Vulgare Extract that soothes and neutralises toxins on the skin.

Our fave is the Anti-Pollution Foaming Cleanser. Best used at night, it removes dirt, including pollutants and makeup, and preps the skin to receive all the nutrients from the skincare that follows. It left our skin feeling clean and fresh, and never tight nor irritated.

From $67, available at Sabon boutiques.

Pixi Beauty Rose Ceramide Cream

An antioxidant-rich moisturiser that’s packed with Ceramides, Probiotics and Rose oil to hydrate the skin and leave it soft and supple. The texture is slightly richer, so it’s good for those with drier skins or if you sleep in an air-conditioned room. Its travel-friendly size is particularly handy to take on flights to soothe and protect the skin from the drying airplane air.

$35, available at Sephora stores.

Mamonde Eye Color Balm

A fast and fuss-free way to getting your eye makeup done, especially in the mornings. Slick any of these eye shadow crayons across the lids, blend to soften with your fingertip and you’re done! You can even use the darker shades as an eyeliner to define the eyes. The formula contains a silicone coating that adheres to the lids better, which helped it last the whole day and didn’t even melt in our humid weather. Comes in eight wearable shades.

$18, available at Mamonde boutiques and Sephora stores.

THREE Beauty Aiming Facial Oil Essence

Enriched with essential oils together with botanical oils and extracts — Geranium, Rose, Lavender, Olive, Pomegranate, Licorice Root, Peony and Rosemary, it not only keeps the skin hydrated but also helps strengthen its natural barrier against external damages. Better suited for mature skin types though, as the active ingredients are said to help with hormonal imbalances for a holistic skincare treatment.

A surprisingly lightweight oil, it absorbs easily and leaves no tacky feel behind while the natural scent of the product instantly soothes and does not overwhelm, making it pleasant to use.

$210, available at THREE counters.

M.A.C Studio Perfect SPF50/PA++ Hydrating Cushion Compact

An upgrade of the fan-favourite Studio Perfect SPF15/PA+ Foundation Fortified Moisture-Fusion Complex, this not only evens out the skin, but also keeps it well-hydrated at all times. The higher SPF level also means that you’re better protected from the sun’s damaging rays, which is perfect for Singapore’s sunny days. Offers a light to medium coverage - good for masking minor blemishes and light dark circles, and gave our complexion a soft dewy glow too.

$65, available at all M.A.C counters and boutiques.

Kenzoki Moisturizing Lotus Mask

A unique mask - it is both a gel and cream in one, this intensely hydrates the skin with Hyaluronic Acid and Lotus Plant Essence while White Lotus Glycolysat repairs and rejuvenates so skin is soothed, soft and glowing in just 15 minutes. But what we love best is the signature White Lotus fragrance that instantly relaxed our frazzled nerves, which made this mini pampering session all the more necessary especially after a stressful day in the office.

$106, available at Sephora stores.

Giorgio Armani Beauty My Armani To Go Essence-In-Foundation Tone-Up Cushion SPF15

Contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin while the use of Micro-soft Powder blurs imperfections like skin roughness and fine lines. It’s also infused with anti-pollution properties and Ascorbyl Glucoside that protects the skin and brightens the complexion over time.

However, the tone of each shade is just a teeny bit lighter than the regular Essence-In-Foundation so we had to go a shade darker. Love the soft luminous finish that made our complexions look fresh and less tired, which was great for mornings where we were dragging ourselves into the office.  

Comes in six shades.

$105, available exclusively at the Giorgio Armani counter at TANGS at Tangs Orchard.

Albion Exage Moist Advance Milk

A new and improved formula, this essence-toner is now enriched with Fine Float, Moist Shock and Rich Repair oils to hydrate the skin from deep within and throughout all the layers for a healthy complexion. The new active ingredients also help stimulate skin’s NMF (natural moisture factors) production ensuring that skin stays smooth, well-hydrated and supple all day.

Used after cleansing, this soothed and hydrated the skin, and left it instantly softer. It also helped our serums and lotions absorb easily, and did not have a tacky finish, which is ideal for Singapore’s humid weather.

Comes in three variants - Milk I for oily skin, Milk II for normal skin and Milk III for dry skin.

$82 each, available at Albion counters.

The first activated Charcoal sheet mask for your vulva area. Enriched with soothing and hydrating botanical ingredients - Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Licorice, it not only freshens the area, but also hydrates and brightens, leaving the delicate skin smooth and soft. Ideal for post-laser and waxing, it cooled and calmed our freshly groomed area instantly.
