We’ve been busy mixing up (Quite literally!) something very exciting the past few months. Beauty is one of our favourite things to talk about on The DC Edit, which makes us extra thrilled to finally introduce our very first skincare + beauty collaboration! We’ve had our hands full, but our hearts are now fuller. Meet: Spring’s Promise, a bloom-powered collection of beauty essentials by The DC Edit in collaboration with Handmade Heroes.

If you tuned into our Local Beauty Edit last year (A-M, N-Z), you would be no stranger to Handmade Heroes. The proudly homegrown Singaporean brand is dedicated to all natural and vegan skin and body care that’s also cruelty-free, paraben and alcohol free. We couldn’t think of a better way to bring together our passion for no-nonsense beauty, more conscious living, potent formulas and a local spotlight. Here’s everything you need to know about The DC Edit x Handmade Heroes collection!

Introducing: Spring’s Promise

In pursuit of restful time-outs, slowing down and gentle spaces, Spring’s Promise is a collection of beauty staples for your me-time recharge. Think pared-back beauty that’s delightfully fuss-free and as efficacious as it is therapeutic. With a burst of flower power: Spring’s Promise is infused with antioxidant Chrysanthemum — a natural herbal skin remedy — that also signifies love, serenity and rebirth. 

The collection is a line-up of three favourite essentials in our books. A hydrating sheer lip tint duo, a lip treatment mask and a deeply renewing facial gel mask. No nasty strings attached here. Like everything else by Handmade Heroes, our collection is all natural, vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, alcohol free, fragrance and essential oil free!

Pocket Full Of Posies Hydrating Lip Dew Duo

For a bloom-infused boost of moisture and hydration with a sheer pop of colour. The Pocket Full Of Posies Hydrating Lip Dew Duo (S$19.90) features all the favourite ingredients we love: Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and Chrysanthemum Extract. Our Lip Dews come in two ultra-wearable hues: Afternoon Tea (a glowy pink) and Golden Hour (a glowy coral). We like how pocket + purse friendly these chic lippies are, with their twist up applicators for easy application and touch ups on the fly. Take this adorable duo everywhere to keep your lips hydrated and dewy all day, everyday!

How we like to use it: Use like a lip balm for a pop of colour and hydration.

Perk Me Up Buttercup! Renewing Lip Mask

A chrysanthemum-infused lip mask powered by superbly nourishing plant-based ingredients: Mango Butter, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Chrysanthemum Extract and Hyaluronic Acid. The Perk Me Up Buttercup! Renewing Lip Mask (S$14.90) is our go-to treatment for deep, long-lasting moisture and smooth, soft lips. With an all-natural scent of lightly sweetened chrysanthemum tea. Kisses!

How we like to use it: Use in the A.M. or P.M. — for an overnight treatment, layer on generously before going to sleep. 

Early Bloom Renewing Facial Gel Mask

Our version of unwinding in a jar. The Early Bloom Renewing Gel Mask (S$34.90) is a calming, soothing solution that delivers a healthy boost of hydration and antioxidants. Made with steeped Chrysanthemum Tea, Honeysuckle Extract and Hyaluronic Acid for a rejuvenating, smoothing skin treatment. Also delicately scented with all-natural, lightly sweetened chrysanthemum tea. We like how this takes us away on floral daydreams *wink*!

How we like to use it: Apply generously onto the face and neck. Leave on for 15-20 mins and gently rinse off with a washcloth (highly recommended). Suitable for all skin types.
