Glowfully Charcoal Beads Gel Cleanser

I love discovering homegrown beauty brands, and Glowfully’s meaningful brand story will make you more inclined to try it. When founder Charlene Sim’s mom began chemotherapy, she began her research on products and foods her mom should avoid during this period. She grew to understand the importance of ingredient composition in skincare products, leading her to innovate skincare solutions that your skin will thank you for. Our picks: Glowfully Charcoal Beads Gel Cleanser and Glowfully H2O Jelly Mask.

Nodspark Summer Fruits

As much as I love the glossy lasting finish of a gel manicure, sometimes it’s just hard to find time to get your nails done.  Nodsparks gives you a seriously fuss-free alternative to the hard-to-remove gelish manicure, with their extensive nail polish wrap collection. You’re only 10 minutes away from a fresh set of nails.

Diving for Pearls Donna Earrings

Pearl-adorned gold-plated earrings and necklaces – 2019’s most coveted jewellery trend takes it cue from the city of Atlantis, drawing inspiration from the shiny, glistening wonders found in the deep unknown. 

Diving for Pearls curates simple yet statement-making pieces that will complement any outfit for any occasion. I picked out Donna– a Divingforpearls classic.

A garment and textile studio based in Singapore, this homegrown womenswear label understands the struggle of dressing to Singapore’s perennial hot and humid climate.
