A satisfied Shopee customer a*****t rated it a five stars and said, “Happy to get this online as it has been OOS in stores for a while now. More expensive than I remember it to be in the shop ($7++ quite a while back?), but it’s still more affordable and as effective as another brand.”

The AG Ultimate Mask is an essence mask that doubles up as a moisturiser. It contains stem cell-derived ingredients that will naturally moisturise your skin. On top of that, it also strengthens your skin’s defence system against UV rays.
You can even use this sheet mask daily if you’d like to! One Amazon customer said it hydrated her skin well and that she noticed a glowing complexion as well as a more even skin tone after using it.

Tsubuporori Memoto Onwakan Eye Cream
Whether you’re a night owl or not, panda eyes are not the only issues you might be facing with your under-eye area. The area below our eyes is extremely sensitive. If we neglect the skin there, we may get milia – dead skin cells that get clogged up by oil and impurities. This causes small white bumps to develop on our skin.
To tackle this issue, reach for this eye cream. It has a gel-like texture that may give you a warm tingling sensation after application. This tingling sensation is the cream’s reaction with our skin as it gets to work.
Shopee user w*****n rated it five starts and said, “Quite good as used for 3 days and noticed the fat granule on my cheek area has reduced in size.”
Plus, you won’t have to worry about dipping your finger into a pot as it comes in a soft fibre stick for easy, mess-free, hygienic application.

Amazon user ﾕｷﾝｺ777 rated this lotion five stars and said, “I like this product so much that I bulk buy them from Donki. During times when I’m under lots of stress I will have breakouts, but other than I don’t face any issues with this product. I feel like my pores are getting smaller.”

Fino Premium Touch Hair Mask
Here is a hair mask you can use every day before your shower. It is a rinse-off hair treatment that will heal your hair from damage caused by humid weather, UV rays, and any harmful chemicals your hair has been exposed to.
Its formula contains seven ingredients that penetrate deep into your hair layers for a nourished and shiny appearance.
Royal jelly infuses moisture into your strands, while trehalose and sorbitol control that moisture and glutamic acid retains your hair colour. This way, the hair mask will preserve your gorgeous hair colour and keep your strands strong at the same time.
T** rated it five stars on the Watsons website and said, “Love this hair mask as it keeps my hair soft and smooth after use. Can feel the obvious difference before and after use. My hair seem to be less frizzy too.”
