Your favourite powder cleanser capsule now comes in a black version, and it’s not just for that badass aesthetic. The all new SUISAI Beauty Clear Black Powder Wash ($14) gets its colour from two key ingredients of Charcoal Powder and Moroccan Lava Clay, and rids the skin of excess oil, dead cells, and other impurities, which makes it great for the blemish-prone. 

Price: $14 per packet (15 capsules)
Get it from SUISAI’s official Shopee Mall store or LazMall Store.

#2: Too Faced - Love Flush Blush

While the original Too Faced Love Flush Blush was discontinued a few years ago, they’re since back in the beauty game with a refreshed formula and new packaging that looks even sweeter than before. Currently available in 4 lovely shades in Singapore, the blusher compact with mirror retains its former heart shape and cursive brand logo in gold, but this time, the pair of bunnies are surrounded by more floral motifs compared to the previous leafy one.

Price: $45

#3: PHYTO - Phytopolleine

While using the right shampoo helps cleanse your scalp, just relying on that isn’t enough - especially if you’re suffering from issues like itchiness, dryness, and oiliness. Adding a scalp exfoliant to your hair care routine will work wonders, and one we’d like to recommend is PHYTO Phytopolleine - a once-a-week pre-shampoo treatment made from 100% plant oils. In fact, it’s so concentrated with natural goodness that each bottle contains 1.75kg worth of plants!

With ingredients such as rosemary, sage, cypress, eucalyptus, and lemon, this elixir purifies and rebalances the scalp, while aiding in blood circulation - resulting in stronger, healthier tresses and improved hair growth. We’re loving its herbaceous scent, which has an instantly calming aromatherapy effect!

Pictured above is the 20ml roll-on version, but you can also get it in full-sized 100ml bottles.

Price: $180 (100ml)
Get it from PHYTO’s online store or official Shopee Mall store

#4: Etude House - Curl Fix Mascara

A slim applicator brush helps you get every last strand while adding volume and curl in a natural-looking manner. Other than the standard black, this also comes in brown for a softer look.

Created by Shiseido is sister label d program, the number one skincare brand in Japan specially catered towards sensitive skin for the past 12 years and counting. Instead of viewing “sensitivity” as an umbrella term, they acknowledge that one can have additional skin woes - including oiliness, roughness, and ageing - and have taken the care to come up with products suitable for a wide range of needs.

Their newly formulated microbiome series of Lotion and Emulsion helps strengthen the skin’s barrier for protection against external damage, and comes in the following 5 variants:

  • Balance Care for combination sensitive skin
  • Acne Care for acne-prone sensitive skin
  • Moist Care for dry and rough sensitive skin

We’ve noticed how designer brand Gucci has started venturing into the cute route, while maintaining their premium quality and branding. Some examples include their trending pink comb and pouch set, cat-themed Bananya collaboration, and the most recent apple-themed pop-up in Singapore with adorable photo ops.

Adding on to that list is the new Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum - with an manga-fied Miley Cyrus fronting the campaign - complete with a fun video with visuals reminiscent of an actual anime opening theme.

The scent itself is a vibrant floral one, in a lovely pink-and-gold bottle with floral patterns that look like they’ve been painted on.

Price: $134 for 30ml, $168 for 60ml, $227 for100ml

#8: Ange Gardien Paris - Naturale Glow 2-in-1 Cushion Foundation

Our recent list of best cushion foundations aside, there’s now a new one to try from French beauty brand Ange Gardien Paris. In 5 shades from Ivory to Medium Deep, the Naturale Glow 2-in-1 Cushion Foundation comes with broad spectrum sun-protecting properties of SPF50/PA++++. What sets this compact cushion apart is how it comes with a fold-out section of finishing powder for oil control and to give your skin that “blurred” effect.

I found the texture of this foundation to be dewy and moisturising, which makes it great for those with dehydrated skin, while the pressed powder helped combat any excess shininess. It’s nicely buildable and doesn’t feel heavy, but I would suggest picking a shade darker than your usual as it appeared much lighter on my skin than it does in its packaging.

Price: $80
Get it from Ange Gardien Paris counters islandwide.

#9: Shinya Koso - Daily Digestion Enzymes

Ever wish you could burn fat just by sleeping? That dream can now be a reality with the enzyme supplements from Japanese brand Shinya Koso. Their Daily Digestion Enzymes help break down carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, and the Night Time version in particular allows you to break down heavy meals and late-night suppers during your slumber - all while giving you a better night’s sleep.

Their newest launch is the Bodymake Daily Morning Enzymes, which helps improve overall gut health by balancing good bacteria, in turn preventing acid reflux, constipation, gastric pain, while increasing your metabolic rate. Good gut health is also linked to better skin!

For additional beauty properties, go for the Beauty Plus version, with 8 additional ingredients including bird’s nest, marine collagen, and hyaluronic acid to restore and maintain your skin from within.

Rest assured that Shinya Koso’s supplements are made from safe ingredients. Having tried them myself, I can vouch that they didn’t cause any discomfort, diarrhoea, stomach pains, or other harmful side effects often associated with diet pills.

Price: From $12.90 for a 7-day supply, from $39.90 for a one-month supply
Get them from Guardian.
