2. HERA Youth Activating Cell Serum
Lessen signs of aging with HERA’s new serum that instantly boosts radiance and revitalises skin.

3. Ange Gardien Paris Charlotte Le Soin Essential Set
Designed and made in France, Ange Gardien Paris is best known for their luxury skincare products and fragrances. And if you’re looking for a practical gift for Mum that she would certainly use during this period, then this hand-cream-and-hand-sanitiser set may just be what you’re looking for.
The set comes with a travel-sized sanitiser (with 75% alcohol content to kill germs) that contains aloe vera extract so it won’t dry out your hands. This is paired with a hand cream that has a gorgeous scent inspired by Queen Charlotte, so that Mum’s hands can receive even more tender, loving care.

The new Cica-Filler line – Creme (SGD79.90), Mattifying Cream (SGD79.90), and three 10ml Serum vials (SGD99.90) – claims to have a “filler”-like effect, to soften expression lines, photo-aging lines, slackening lines, and dehydration lines with its botanical complex that stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin.
5. BVLGARI Omnia Golden Citrine
Remind her of her carefree and optimistic nature with BVLGARI’s whimsical new floral fragrance, created by Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas, by blending the luminous and feminine ylang-ylang with fragrant and light jasmine, balanced with a masculine yet soft heart of Cedarwood.

6. RE:ERTH Blemish Control
Spending all day in an air-conditioned environment can really stress out your skin, causing concerns like dryness and blemishes.

SGD80 at RE:ERTH’s website, or at Downtown OUE and Design Orchard outlets after the Circuit Breaker.
7. Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum
Housed in Sulwhasoo’s iconic gold and white glass bottle, the brand introduces its fifth, new and improved formula of its Activating Serum.

8. L’Occitane Immortelle Reset Eye Serum and Herbae Par L’OCCITANE L’EAU
The newest addition to the brand’s bestselling Immortelle Reset range, this serum claims to have 8/10 of its users seeing a difference after one use!
This serum cares for the eye area, which has the thinnest and most sensitive skin on the face, working to diminish puffiness, wrinkles and the dreaded dark circles to reveal brighter, well-rested eyes.
Get this on L’Occitane’s website for SGD89, or in L’Occitane stores after the Circuit Breaker.
If your mum is a L’Occitane fan, consider getting her this latest fragrance too. This is a fresh and citrusy fragrance with a unique white clover heart (never used before in perfume history!), bright bursts of lemon and bergamot, and earthy musk.
L’Occitance L’eau retails on the L’Occitane website from SGD35, or in L’Occitane stores after the Circuit Breaker.

Available on Sephora for SGD59.
12. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Illumination Anti-Aging Concealer
While concealers play a huge part in a perfect makeup look, many dry out maturing skin and crease under the eyes. Try this IT Cosmetics one that illuminates and reduces the look of wrinkles and fine lines with collagen for a brighter and more youthful under eye.
