The balm is formulated with 100% food grade ingredients, which means it’s suitable for those with even the most sensitive of skin.

The Mentholatum Lip Pure is available at all Watsons outlets and at selected Guardian stores. It retails for SGD8.90.
2. Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate
Nutox may be new to Singapore, but with its impressive and diverse range of skincare, there’s no doubt that it is soon to become the talk of town.
Its best-selling product? The Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate, which promises to deliver on younger-looking skin in just seven days. What the elixir does is basically help speed up collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production levels, thus restoring and rejuvenating even the most tired of complexions. Consider us sold!
The Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate is available at selected Watsons outlets, and retails for SGD35.90.
3. OGx Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner
We all want lush, soft and shiny locks, which is exactly what the OGx Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner claims to do.

4. Nivea’s Extra White Radiant & Smooth Serum
If you suffer from uneven skin tone, pigmentation, and dark spots, the new Nivea Extra White range is for you. Available in both lotion and serum form, there are three separate sub-ranges catered for every skin type and concern. We recommend the Radiant and Smooth line, which is specially formulated with UVA & UVB filters that absorb and reflect harmful UV light. This, in turn, helps combat dull and uneven skin tones, making it ideal for Singapore’s weather.

7. L’Oreal Paris Ever Pure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask
We all know the benefits a sheet mask can bring for your skin— so it should come as no surprise that there’s one out there for your hair, too! This one by L’Oreal Paris is the first ever shower steam-activated mask, specially formulated for those with coloured and chemically treated hair.
Infused with a aloe essence that gives you shinier, softer hair, it only requires five minutes to work its magic: simply pop it on in the shower (like a shower cap) and watch as the steam melts the nourishing formula onto your hair.
The L’Oreal Paris Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask along with its entire range is available at all Guardian and Watsons outlets, as well as at major supermarkets. It is also available on Lazada and retails for SGD6.90.
