“Clean Beauty” made waves in the beauty industry not too long ago, and the beauty market hence exploded. My sentiments tell me that this trend will be even bigger as we place emphasis on the ingredients and the impact we make on the environment. I’ve recently tried Derma E, a proven clean beauty brand from the U.S. and I’m really loving it!
C/o iHerb, I shopped Derma E over at the iHerb website that carries over 30,000 natural products and ships to over 150 countries. If you didn’t know, iHerb orders are shipped from climate-controlled distribution centers to ensure quality of their products. Customer service is also provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in 10 different languages! Hence, you don’t have to worry about anything shopping on iHerb!
Estée Lauder, L’Oréal and Luxasia carry international beauty brands that we are all familiar with. These beauty giants may house some of the best skincare brands, but sometimes, it takes a local to truly know what our skin need. With Singapore being in a tropical climate, it is hot and humid all year round. Local skincare experts show us how to take care of our skin in this highly unpredictable weather.
I’ve rounded up 4 local skincare brands that every Singaporean girl should check out:
Applying sunscreen is a vital step to our skincare routine, especially in Singapore’s hot tropical climate. There are tons of sunscreens out in the market, which make us spoilt for choice. Being Asian, should we select Western brands or continue to trust Asian brands? What about cost vs. effectiveness? Does it mean expensive sunscreens perform the best?
“Sensitive” is what most ladies will describe their skin, but is it really sensitive? Sometimes, it’s not that our skin is sensitive, but the products we use or the excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors that exacerbate our skin conditions. Dry climates can also cause our skin to react too. In any case, if you’re fretting over how to calm your (sensitive) skin, the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ skincare range is your answer!
Not too long ago, Origins released a gel-to-water moisturiser to complement the range – the Hydra Burst Gel Lotion. It was love at first touch! I’ve been using this as the last step of my skincare regime and I LOVE IT!
The festive season is upon us and with all the holiday sales going on, I’m sure everyone is preparing Christmas presents for their loved ones! I personally haven’t started shopping but I will, soon! What about you?
