WHAT WE'RE LOVING
If transitioning back-to-work (and to that work-from-office sleep cycle) has wrecked havoc on your skin, you might want to get a dose of Dr Dennis Gross’s new (and extra potent) anti-stress corrective serum. Powered by Microencapsulated Superfoods, Adaptogens and Niacinamide (B3), this SOS serum alleviates tension lines, dullness and flare ups. A cocktail of natural skin-savers including Maitake Mushroom, Maca Root, Cacao and Goji Berry help to rescue and restore the skin -- for a smoother, more radiant and more resilient visage.
As if things couldn’t get any better, the iconic Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrator recently levelled up on itself. Meet: 100 hours hydration, 10 layers deep into the skin -- for a formidable morning skin prep. Clinique’s favourite weightless oil-free gel cream formula now features supreme hydration capabilities using an innovative Auto-Replenishing Technology, to lock in moisture for deeply hydrated, plump and healthy skin. The no-nonsense formula also features Aloe Bio-Ferment, Hyaluronic Acid and Activated Aloe Water, while omitting nasties like Parabens, Phthalates, as well as Fragrance for optimally happy skin. Beat that!
Getting out the door in a jiffy (while still looking aesthetically presentable) has gotten a tad harder since we got accustomed to starting work in PJs. Laura Mercier’s new 2-in-1 all-over face and eye multi-tasking concealer duo will save you time, while covering up the trials and tribulations of easing your body clock back into work-from-office. This double edged sword features a creamy corrector on one end to camouflage blemishes/dark spots/imperfections, and a brightening concealer on the other for illuminating panda eyes. Pigment rich, full coverage, effortless to blend and in the form of a nifty wand -- this might just be our new everyday, everywhere corrector.
Another big time saver! The KAJA Beauty Bento is a stacked eyeshadow trio of creamy, buttery shadows in a mix of light to dark shades, from matte to shimmers. This super neat eyeshadow tower has all the essential hues for simple day to night looks; the soft powdery formula also works great with fingers, so you can slip this handy compact into your makeup pouch for easy touch-ups. We think stacked beauty has so much potential in our new normal routine!
If you’ve been experiencing a newfound love for multi-taskers, you’re not the only one. Do-it-all products are *the bomb* when you’re running late.... After hitting snooze on repeat. Smashbox’s all-in-one SPF primer-infused tinted moisturiser delivers all-day natural coverage and a dewy glow. Made with soothing Rose Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, Goji Berries and Peptides, the oil-free formula also acts as a conditioning base for all day protection and hydration. Major brownie points for how breathable this formula is -- add this to your wishlist if you’ve been on the hunt for a mask-friendly tinted moisturiser.
Good hair days are always magic. This fast-absorbing anti-frizz hair oil deeply nourishes and hydrates, while guarding against humidity (we could really use more of that). Supercharged by patented Healthy Hair Molecule and a 5-oil blend -- like the oils in natural healthy hair -- this silicone-free formula will tame frizz-prone hair and also treat chemically-damaged tresses, without weighing you hair down in grease. Zoom out the door with soft, silky locks!
