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:

Being in an urban jungle in this tropical climate, we often face a host of skin aggressors such as pollution and stress. We tend to pile up our skincare to counter the detrimental effects of these problems but sometimes, it’s all about going back to the basics.
Going back to the basics means focusing on simple yet effective solutions. Every month, I get a skin outbreak due to hormonal changes and what I like to do is to cut down the number of skincare products in my regime to not over-complicate things.
InstaNatural, a brand that focuses on clean and accessible skincare, has been helping me achieve hydrated and radiant skin during times like these. If you want to go natural, go InstaNatural (c/o iHerb)!

As we welcome the Year of the Dog, while we want ourselves to PAWSper, we also want our skin to blossom for this brand new year, don’t we?
Living in Asia, we’re mostly acquainted with Asian skincare brands, or if not, huge international beauty brands that are stocked in Sephora. I don’t know about you but I haven’t been adventurous with my skincare because of my skin sensitivity, thus, was contented with the brands I use/see on a daily basis. However, when the kind team from Lookfantastic approached me with Omorovicza, a Hungarian brand, I was excited, yet nervous at the same time.
<WARNING: INFORMATIVE HONEST REVIEW AHEAD>
Having read up on the history of Omorovicza, I was more compelled to test out the brand. If you didn’t know, Omorovicza was founded by Stephen, a descendant of the noble Omorovicza family, and his wife, Margaret, while they were in Budapest’s ancient spas/baths.
When my skin’s happy, I am happy! One of the main reasons why I’m really bubbly and happy-go-lucky lately is because of my skin. I’ve been feeling really confident in my skin for the past 2-3 months or so because it has drastically improved.
I kid you not; I have been struggling with acne issues since I was a teenager, about 14 years old or so, to the extent that I needed to be on Oratane. The large, inflamed, cystic acne may have stop visiting me but I still get occasional break outs every month.
Allies of Skin Glow Gifter Set
When I thought all hope was lost, I found a combination of different skincare products that work for me. If you’ve been following paradeoflove.com, you’ll know that one of the culprits for my clear complexion is the Allies of Skin Glow Gifter Set which contains the Molecular Saviour Mist and the Bright Future Overnight Facial.
