The ultimate night in varies from person to person. It can involve anything from watching a feel-good film to taking a nice long bath or getting some downtime with a good book. 

For me, the ultimate girl’s night in involves stepping out of my usual 4-step skincare routine. To indulge in products that require that little bit of extra effort. Soaking in some aromatherapy, exfoliating my skin with a rich and aromatic body scrub and putting on a mask, all in the company of my girlfriends

Because International Women’s Day is around the corner, we have partnered with UOB Lady’s Card to specially curate 5 self-care essentials for you to enjoy the best girl’s night in with the best women in your life. Read on to find out how you can win all these products as well!

Handmade Heroes’ Butt Kickin’ Deep Detoxing Coffee Scrub

There’s always that satisfying process of transformation that occurs when you get a handful of body scrub and massage them onto your skin. Scrubs feel so incredible. They are really effective in transforming your skin, making them feel smooth and silky in an instant. Jumping out of a shower after using a body scrub almost feels like you spent that extra cash on a luxurious spa treatment

We’re all for getting our daily dose of caffeine and this is just one of the more indulgent ways of getting it. This scrub from Handmade Heroes exfoliates using the perfect combination of sugar, shea butter, coffee and sweet almond oil. These ingredients work together to stimulate blood circulation and improve your skin’s elasticity, priding itself as a major cellulite buster. But don’t let its powerful function intimidate you because this scrub is also ultra-nourishing. Your skin will be left feeling soft and smooth to the touch in a single-use.

 

Handmade Heroes’ Lip Scrub Kit

You can conscientiously slather lip balm every time your lips start to feel dry but the best way to achieve soft and supple lips is through exfoliation. Exfoliating your lips with a scrub can not only keep your lips moisturised but also slough away all the unwanted dead skin cells laying on the surface of your lips. 

This lip scrub kit from Handmade Heroes contains lip scrubs of three incredibly mouth-watering flavours — Coconut Sorbet, Matcha Latte and Pina Colada. They provide a range of gentle to medium exfoliation and are made up of all-natural vegan ingredients. Simply choose your preferred flavour of the day and rub the scrub gently around your lips in a circular motion. They are also formulated with virgin coconut oil which serves to conditions your lips, leaving a soft veil of hydration behind.

FLO’s Nebulising Diffuser Starter Bundle – Raindrop

 

If like me, scents play a major role in your self-care routine, try aromatherapy. The incredible concoctions of essential oils provide an all-natural way of relaxing and finding balance. Essential oils are also highly concentrated. This is why they are so powerful at transforming your space into a wellness retreat.

FLO’s Nebulising Diffuser Starter Bundle is a great introduction to aromatherapy. The diffuser doesn’t require any water or heat and provides a silent yet really powerful way of dispersing the aroma of essential oils around your room. We recommend pairing this with FLO’s Enchanted Essential Oil which is a dreamy blend of Lavender, Lemongrass and Rose Geranium. Its soothing aroma functions to instantly put your mind at ease and relaxation is only a whiff away. 

For UOB Lady’s Cardmembers: 10% off total bill* using promo code: UOB10. Valid till 30 Apr 2020. Shop now at www.floaroma.sg.

 

Alcheme’s BRIGHTEN {me} Radiance Mask

 

On the topic of self-care and treating yourselves, face masks fall perfectly into the feel-good category of beauty that we can’t help but indulge in. Whether you want to prep your skin for that skincare regime you have going or simply set some time to slow down and focus on what’s in front of you, face masks always do the trick. 

If your skin is feeling dull and pigmented, try Alcheme’s BRIGHTEN {me} Radiance Mask. It combines an intentional blend of Wu Zhu fruit extract, Niacinamide, Millet Seed Extract and Oak Tannins to address any textured and pigmented skin. The best part? It is a leave-on mask so you don’t have to take the trouble of getting out of bed to rinse it off. Wake up the next morning with fresh and glowing skin greeting you!

 

Alcheme’s REJUVENATE {me} Shield + Repair Serum

We love serums for its lightweight formula which goes on perfectly in our ever-so-humid climate.  Serums are also packed with potent ingredients. As our skin is most receptive towards the delivery of these ingredients at night, ending your ultimate girl’s night in with a good serum really does make all that difference.

With active ingredients such as Centella Asiatica, Vitamin C, Babchi Seeds and Ginseng Root Extract, this serum by Alcheme works to tighten your pores and tackle the environment’s impact on your skin. It helps with pigmentation and skin texture and then ups the skin’s hydration level for a smooth result.
