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:
As we age, do you find that it’s harder to maintain the youthfulness you once had on your skin? Aging, work stresses and the harmful aggressors from the environment are what contributes to dullness in our skin. As we grow older, not only your overall metabolism slows down, your skin metabolism decelerate as well, and this means that your skin cells renew at a decreased pace. What do we get? Fine lines, uneven skin texture and you can also bid goodbye to bouncy, supple skin.
To combat all of those signs, L’Oréal Paris has reinforced its best-selling Youth Code essence with Ferment Essence extracted at a purity of 98% to not only stimulate skin metabolism but also step up the cell renewal rate. The result? A healthier looking skin complexion with the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence.
Ever got pampered so much that you felt like a queen? You can do the same for your skin too and make yourself feel like Your Royal Highness. The premium Korean skincare label, The History of Whoo, recently made its entrance into our shores. Already a fan of its Gongjinhyang Mi Luxury Lipstick, I was intrigued to test out its legendary skincare line. Fortunately for me, I had the chance to immerse myself in complete luxury with The History of Whoo Bichup Soon Hwan Essence.
Whoo is derived from the Chinese character “后”, meaning empress or queen. The History of Whoo therefore encompasses both oriental traditions and the history of the empress’ secret beauty formula. The precious beauty skincare line is inspired from the traditional Korean royal culture, made modern with today’s science and technology, and is designed to convey modern cosmetic virtues while embodying regal beauty.
Following the Korean trend of 물광피부 (mul-gwang-pi-bu), translated as “watery-light” dewy skin, many skincare brands have upped their game by providing ultra moisturising skincare products. New Korean skincare brand, DCS, makes its mark to Singapore with its AQUADERM skincare range, dedicated to give you that radiant, hydrated skin that’s never out of trend!
The DCS AQUADERM brings forth skin renewal with volcanic seawater from Jeju contained in all its products. Having tried 5 out of 6 of its products, I must say that for a new brand, it is pretty impressive!
Jeju’s volcanic seawater forms the core base of all DCS products and what makes the specific seawater so ideal for the skincare range is its rare mineral content of selenium, zinc and iron – all of which are vital to skin health.
MaryKay is an American brand with an inspirational founder, Mary Kay Ash
, who’s dedicated to inspire, enrich and empower women to do great things. I have the premium skincare/body care line with me, the MaryKay TimeWise Miracle
set that’s made to fight signs of aging with the latest skincare science to deliver younger-looking skin for all skin types, including sensitive skin and those with rosacea.
I was rather skeptical with this brand at first because I haven’t encountered nor experienced any of its products before. However, some of the products in the range actually surprised me which I thought was not bad, given that it’s my first time trying them out.
