2. Orbis Hand Treatment + Hair Care

For that workaholic friend

With most Singaporeans working in an air-conditioned environment, two most common problems that crop up are dry skin and dry hair.

Now imagine a product that can combat both these problems at the same time! ORBIS Hand Treatment + Hair Care promises to do just that. Being non-greasy yet intensely moisturising, it has the perfect combination to battle dryness all day. Being free from fragrances and artificial colours, the moisturiser is also suitable for those with sensitive skin. Your friends will thank you for saving them from a bad skin and hair day.

Hand Treatment + Hair Care is available at all ORBIS counters and stores, and retails at SGD18.

3. Fresh Skincare Darlings

For that friend with unpredictable makeup preferences.

Buying makeup for friends can be tricky, especially if you aren’t quite sure what kind of colours they like or which look good on them. Why not treat them to a gift that’ll give them naturally beautiful skin?

Fresh has frequently impressed us with their designs. It should be of no surprise that their holiday gift sets are so gorgeously packaged, you can gift it without any wrapping.

Skincare Darlings is available at Fresh boutiques in ION and Raffles City, at Sephora stores and on the Sephora website. They are valued SGD42, but retail at SGD30 for the set.
