The past year has been particularly hard on the retail sector, perhaps even more so for our small homegrown businesses – which is why there’s no time like the present to rally and support local brands.
But, that’s not even the top reason to #supportlocal – fact is, there are so many Singaporean beauty brands with high-quality and aesthetically pleasing products that will make for impressive gifts this festive season.
Plus, there’s just something about giving a gift with local flavour if you ask us. So go ahead, take your pick from our selection of 11 Christmas gift ideas from homegrown beauty brands – we’ve even picked out some jolly candles that you can fill your home with.
This holiday, your skin will surely be brimming with a healthy glow with BSkin’s Vita-C Booster Set, which features the brand’s award-winning Vita Advanced Intense PAF Concentrate alongside a pair of brand-exclusive Ice Globes.
The potent waterless vitamin C serum is powered by a 20% concentration of pure L-ascorbic acid to brighten and unify the skin tone while ironing out fine lines and boosting your skin’s natural collagen production.
Use it with the Ice Globes for a soothing, puffiness-reducing facial massage, and we guarantee you’ll be glowing in no time.
