Keep reading to check out the eight best new beauty launches in Singapore!
#1 Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Mask
TikTok users will be familiar with the viral Caudalie Vinergetic C+ Instant Detox mask that supposedly draws out all the oil and gunk from the pores instantly. Simultaneously, Caudalie has quietly released a new Vinopure Purifying Mask that promises similar results. This fast-acting formula is an impurity magnet that reduces all types of acne, from blemishes and blackheads to enlarged pores, almost instantly.
Suitable for acne-prone skin, the mask is made with 99% of natural origin ingredients such as Green Clay and Zinc. The best blend of anti-acne ingredients are packed in this mask to tackle blemishes effectively.
#2 meeth Silky Body Scrub
It can be tricky finding a body scrub that's effective yet gentle enough for delicate, dry skin. Well, meeth's new Silky Body Scrub might be the one as it contains sea salt from Ako city in Japan instead of harsh synthetic crystals used by most other scrubs.
Besides being gentle on the skin and making it silky smooth, sea salt is also rich in minerals, rejuvenates the skin, and has an antibacterial effect. The scrub also contains rockweed which tones the skin and apricot seeds for whitening and acne prevention.
After scrubbing the skin, you can let it sit for a while as the natural ingredients in it, such as pear juice, red algae and ceramide, tightens and polishes the skin.
#3 NARS Valentine's Day 2022 Collection
NARS has given two of their bestsellers a glamorous makeover with romance-themed packaging.
First is the Natural Radiant Longwear Cushion Foundation Case ($20) which is now in a striking gold and covered in red hearts. Another is the famed Radiant Creamy Concealer ($46) that has the same gold-and-red heart design and comes in two shades: Vanilla and Custard.
Both limited edition products will be available from 18 January at sephora.sg.
#4 Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream
The latest addition to Glow Recipe's Plum family, this hyaluronic cream has a weightless, whipped texture and is now housed in the brand's first-ever refillable glass jar with refillable pods.
Every pod is made of 50% post-consumer recycled material and the jars are made to last, so you'll only have to purchase one glass jar for a lifetime.
This creamy moisturiser is formulated to balance oiliness and is clinically tested to significantly increase skin moisture immediately for up to 72 hours. Five weights of hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, and a blend of three antioxidant-rich plum extracts deliver hydration that plumps the skin. In the meanwhile, ice willow herb helps control oil and support the skin barrier.
#5 Moist Diane Be True Healthy Vegan Haircare Series
Moist Diane is another brand that's getting woke on environmental issues with the launch of their first vegan haircare series: Diane Be True in HEALTHY Damage Repair and RELAX Smooth Repair.
Formulated with vegan superfood ingredients and organic botanical oils, the shampoo and conditioner are made using ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients and are packaged in bottles made from 96% recycled plastic. Both ranges contain Vegan Keratin from the shells of Green Peas to repair the hair's structure and Rose Water for a fresh, floral scent.
The Diane Be True HEALTHY Damage Repair range is suited for a dry scalp and brittle hair types. It's made with Organic Basil Extract with anti-inflammatory properties to soothe sensitive scalps, and Organic Avocado Oil for moisture.
If you have an oily scalp and frizzy hair, go for the RELAX Smooth Repair ranges which has vitamin-rich Kale & Quinoa Extract to boost the hair's hydration levels for less frizz and softer hair texture.
#6 Fenty Eau de Parfum
The coveted Fenty Eau de Parfum is finally available for shipping to Singapore.
Described as a unique and sensual fragrance, it features notes of magnolia and musk with tangerine, blueberry and hints of Bulgarian rose absolute, geranium and patchouli. The bottle design has a curved body and amber-brown shade that evokes a contrast between vintage and modern, as well as femininity and masculinity.
Priced at US$130 (~S$175.90), it is currently sold out but is expected to be restocked at fentybeauty.com.
#7 Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion
You've heard of facial AHAs for skin brightening and anti-ageing benefits, but your body also deserves some TLC with chemical exfoliants.
Drunk Elephant's new body lotion is formulated with a 10% AHAs - glycolic, tartaric, lactic and citric acids - to gently exfoliate the skin, making bumpy, dull and uneven areas more radiant and smooth. A mix of soothing plant oils, moisturising butters and barrier-supporting electrolytes go deep to moisturise dry, irritable skin.
It also goes beyond moisturising to strengthen and replenish a compromised skin barrier, boosting the production of vital natural moisturising factors like ceramides and cholesterol.
#8 Dior New Look Collection
Inspired by Christian Dior's début runway show named "New Look", two makeup products and a selection of fragrances have been reborn with a bold houndstooth motif - a timeless emblem that has been embraced by the House from the beginning.
Adorned with the striking houndstooth motif, the Dior Forever Couture Perfect Cushion ($105) has the same high-perfection foundation formula with 24-hour wear.
The Rouge Dior ($69) lipstick has the houndstooth couture motif both on the tube and the bullet. Infused with floral lip care and long-wearing, the iconic lipstick and coloured lip balms come in 7 finishes ranging from satin to velvet.
Four La Collection Privée Christian Dior fragrances have also been transformed with the couture houndstooth pattern.
The New Look makeup collection will be available from 1 January at all Dior Beauty boutiques and counters, while the fragrances will be available at Privée Christian Dior in Ion Orchard.
