If you think the beauty world in December is all about holiday collections and gift sets, and there is nothing new on the market, you are in for a surprise. Brands are still coming out with new launches every day even if this late into the year!
We have curated ten exciting new products and collections that you might want to buy either as a treat for yourself or a Christmas gift for your loved ones. Check them out below!
1. Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum
Elizabeth Arden recently introduced the latest addition to their iconic line of serum capsules: the Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum, which combines two powerful skincare ingredients Vitamin C and Ceramide.
The benefits of Vitamin C and Ceramide such as the brightening effect, reduction of hyperpigmentation, and protection of the skin’s moisture barrier are already well-known.
However, the Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum takes it to the next level by using a Vitamin C that is 178 times more potent than traditional vitamin C, and is oil soluble instead of water soluble. This means that the serum will be more effective and able to maximise its efficacy as it absorbs more readily into your skin.
To use, slowly open the capsule and squeeze three drops onto your palm. Apply to your face in the morning and/or at night, and use the remaining formula for your neck and décolletage as needed.
The Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum are available in two sizes: 30 and 60 capsules. They retail at SGD81 and SGD153, respectively, available at Elizabeth Arden counters nationwide.
2. ést.lab SunShield
All sunscreens protect our skin from UV rays, but did you know that blue light exposure also contributes to premature ageing of the skin?
This is why ést.lab has reformulated their best-selling sunscreen SunShield to introduce a new ingredient called FloraGLO Lutein Topical, which has been proven to be highly effective in protecting the skin from blue light.
Other than that, the reformulated SunShield retains the feature that made the original version a best-selling product: its shade matching technology, which changes colour to complement your skin tone upon application. This allows the sunscreen to double up as a tinted makeup base for those lazy days when you can’t be bothered with a full layer of foundation.
The ést.lab SunShield sunscreen retails at SGD96, and is available on ést.lab’s e-shop and at all Estetica Beauty Studios islandwide.
3. Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing Skincare Line
Fans of Innisfree, rejoice! The popular K-beauty brand has just come out with a brand new product line centred around the star ingredient blueberry.
Packed with antioxidants and minerals, blueberries are called a superfood for a reason. And now you can get this natural goodness in your skincare with the Blueberry Rebalancing Skincare Line, comprising six products for a comprehensive yet simple routine.
To celebrate the launch, Innisfree is offering a free travel kit as well as a 20% discount off other facial cleansers, shampoos and conditioners, when you buy any product in the Blueberry Rebalancing Skincare Line.
The Blueberry Rebalancing Skincare Line is available exclusively on Lazada.
4. PAYOT Uni Skin Concentré Perles
French skincare brand PAYOT recently launched their first retail store in Singapore, at TANGS Vivocity, and among the products introduced, what caught our eye was the Uni Skin Concentré Perles.
The ingredient list certainly looks impressive with Hyaluronic Acid as well as various fruit and plant extracts to give your skin a plump and radiant appearance.
However, what makes the Uni Skin Concentré Perles a stand-out product is that it is made of little pearls when in the bottle, but upon application, turns into a gel consistency, which makes it so much fun to use.
The Uni Skin Concentré Perles comes in a 30ml bottle, and retails at SGD149, available at their store at TANGS Vivocity.
5. THREE 3rd Generation Balancing Line
If you are a fan of Japanese skincare brand THREE, you probably have heard of, or even used, their iconic Balancing Line. This month, they are relaunching this product line, now COSMOS-certified organic, and containing a higher percentage of naturally derived ingredients.
The COSMOS standard is a collaborative effort from five key European organic certification bodies: the Soil Association, BDIH, Cosmebio, Ecocert and ICEA. COSMOS-certified products meet the highest international standard for organic and natural cosmetics. This means that you can be sure that the THREE Balancing Line is not only effective but also safe to use.
The THREE Balancing Line includes a makeup remover, cleansing oil, cleansing foam, lotion, emulsion, cream, and an oil serum. You can purchase these products at THREE counters at TANGS at TANG Plaza or Takashimaya S.C..
6. Astalift Jelly Aquarysta
For something on the more luxurious side, Astalift has unveiled a new and improved formula of the Jelly Aquarysta, a pre-lotion skincare product with hydrating and anti-ageing properties.
The new formula contains an additional 10% of nanoceramides compared to the original formula, delivering improved moisture to the skin. The new ingredient, Asenyaku extract, further strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier, giving you a more supple, glowing complexion.
7. Sisley Les Phyto-Ombres
One can’t have too many eyeshadows, and if you are still looking for new shades for your party looks this holiday season, you will be glad to know that Sisley has launched a new eyeshadow collection called Les Phyto-Ombres.
The eyeshadows have a creamy, velvety texture, and come in 20 radiant, highly-pigmented shades with five different finishes: matte, satin, metallic, luminous, and glitter, perfect for any season or time of day.
Each eyeshadow retails at SGD59, available at Sisley counters in Singapore.
8. K-Palette Real Strong Waterproof Eyeliner in Limited Edition shades
To celebrate the first anniversary of their award-winning, cult favourite Real Strong Waterproof Eyeliner, K-Palette has released two limited edition shades: Classical Burgundy and Retro Brown.
These two additions have the same formula as the original: it is water-, sebum-, sweat- and smudge-proof. This eyeliner will take you from nine to five and beyond without having to worry about touch-up or panda eyes!
K-Palette Real Strong Waterproof Eyeliner retails at SGD21.90 at Don Don Donki, Sasa, Watsons, Welcia-BHG and online.
9. BYBI Beauty Babe Balm Bronze
Makeup with skincare benefits, need we say more? Eco-friendly beauty brand BYBI has come out with their first colour cosmetic product: the BYBI Babe Balm Bronze, a highlighter with natural ingredients such as mica powder and shea butter to moisturise and nourish your skin.
The highlighter is meant to be applied with your finger. Simply blend it across your cheekbones, eyelids, lips, collarbones, or anywhere else that you want to add a little bit of glow to.
The natural mica powder and shea butter in the ingredients are both sustainably sourced, so you can not only look good, but also feel good about your purchase.
The BYBI Babe Balm Bronze retails at SGD23 for 6ml, available at Sephora stores.
10. KANEBO Wrinkle-Lift Serum
The KANEBO Wrinkle-Lift Serum is a medicated wrinkle control serum that targets areas on the face that are prone to wrinkles and fine lines such as around the eyes, mouth and forehead.
It contains niacinamide, which helps improve dull and uneven skin tone. The Baby-Soft Oil Formulation locks in moisture and maintains hydration at the target areas, improving problems related to ageing such as dryness, deep wrinkles and, lack of elasticity.
The KANEBO Wrinkle-Lift Serum is priced at SGD190 and will be available in January 2020. If you are searching for an anti-ageing serum, this is definitely something to look forward to.
