“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!
What better way to welcome Spring than with the Chantecaille Spring 2020 Makeup Collection? Whenever Chantecaille comes up with a makeup collection, I get every excited. I get overly eager not just because of the products but also the brand’s conservation initiatives. How many beauty brands in the market actively give back to the community and the environment on a daily basis? Well, we don’t know but one thing’s for sure: each and every of Chantecaille’s Limited Edition collection (and the Lip Veil collection) supports some animal/plant conservation efforts.
For Spring 2020, we zoom in to the hummingbird’s natural rainforest habitat. We look into giving back to the Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) as they work to preserve these birds’ habitats and homes.
When it comes to fragrances, Yves Rocher may not be the first brand that springs to our minds. However, did you know that the brand carries a wide range of perfumes made with botanical ingredients? I am current addicted to the Yves Rocher Garden Party & Eau Fraiche Rose fragrances – they smell SOOOOO good!
Since we’ve just welcomed springtime not too long ago, these 2 fragrances are perfect for the season. Think clear blue skies, lush greenery full of delicate blooms. These perfumes make me feel immersed in the freshness of Spring, much like the Elizabeth Arden White Tea ones.
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:
Hydrate and moisturise – what’s the difference? Well, the Drunk Elephant F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial shows you what it means to do both! I’ve been using the F-Balm™ ever since I laid my hands on it, for about 2 weeks now. Being in air-conditioned environments most of the time dries out my skin big time. Ever since I’ve started using the F-Balm™, I find that my skin feels less dry and looks much healthier too!
About Drunk Elephant
If you’re new to the brand, Drunk Elephant (DE) is a “Clean Compatible” skincare brand founded by Tiffany Masterson while combating her skin issues. The products are made in the U.S. and do not contain the “Suspicious 6” (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Sunscreens, Fragrances/Dyes, SLS). DE’s focus is about biocompatibility, pH levels, safety, continuously making sure that active ingredients are at efficacious levels. The skincare line also seeks to remain respectful and always supportive of our skin’s acid mantle.
Fun fact! Drunk Elephant derived its name from a myth that says elephants get drunk when they eat the fruit that has fallen from Marula trees!
