We’re officially entering the second half of the year – and hey, you survived! If you’re wondering if you have an excuse a reason to shop, this article is that sign you’re looking out for. We’ve curated a list of pampering beauty goodies – many of them are new launches! – that you can get as a reward for yourself for battling through half of 2019. Well done!



02 Foreo Luna 3

Widely regarded as the holy grail of skincare devices since its inception in 2013, FOREO has always been able to offer its users the experience of an ultra-hygienic gentle cleanse with a targeted, yet personalised, firming and toning facial massage.

The experience has now been enhanced in the new and improved FOREO 3, which is 100% app-enabled and contains 30% longer touchpoints, 30% bigger brush head, and 25% softer touchpoints with 16 pulsation intensities. We can’t think of a better device that you should get to pamper yourself for all the hard work you’ve put in this year.

FOREO LUNA 3 retails at SGD299 and is available at Sephora, TANGS, and online at Foreo.com, Sephora.sg, Tangs.com, Zalora, and LAZADA from 4 July.

2. PHS Volumising Shampoo

Brighten your smile with the new limited edition Rouge Dior Miss Dior lipstick, engraved with the signature houndstooth motif of the Miss Dior fragrance.

Boasting both couture colour and comfort and wear, we think that this lively coral lipstick would be the perfect reward for the girl who’s always on the move yet manages to look polished all the time.

Rouge Dior Miss Dior lipstick retails at SGD54 and is available at all Dior counters.

5. alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser

Cream Moisturiser Judges

No two person has the exact same set of skincare concerns and needs. This is why customised solutions are always the best if you want to care for your skin the right way.

It is probably not surprising that the alche{me} Personalised Moisturiser is the winner of Best Cream Moisturiser (Judges’ Choice) at the Daily Vanity Beauty Awards. After all, customers receive a product that’s customised based on their individual needs and to achieve their unique skin goals.

The product is loved for its ability to deeply hydrate skin and tighten the appearance of pores. It also has an amazing texture that makes application a joy.

If you’re looking for a glossy but comfortable, pigmented yet lightweight formula, this is it. This YSL water stain comes in 18 (!) new shades of nude, orange, pink, and reds designed by YSL Global Beauty Director Tom Pecheux, which means that there’s something for every skin tone in this collection.

The stain gives a durable wet and intense look to the lips without being too cloying, making it the perfect product in hot and humid Singapore.

YSL Beauté VERNIS À LÈVRES WATER STAIN retails at SGD52 and will be available at all YSL Beauté stores from 1 July 2019.


Drunk Elephant D Bronzi Anti Pollution Sunshine Drops Moodshot 4 50

Sun’s out, fun’s out! But did you know that you can achieve that same coveted bronzed look without having to deal with sun damage?

Simply add a drop of the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-pollution Sunshine Drops to any serum, oil, or moisturiser for not just a beautiful glow, but also a potent dose of protective antioxidants and omega fatty acids.

Advanced Night Repair Intense Reset Concentrate

Just got back from your mid-year holiday but your skin isn’t adapting well back to the Singapore weather? We’ve been there.

Estée Lauder’s new Advanced Night Repair Intense Reset Concentrate is a powerful overnight treatment specifically designed to rescue and reset the look of irritated and stressed skin. With soothing notes of chamomile, lavender, and hedione, this product doubles as aromatherapy – just the antidote we need to a high-stress day!

Nirvana Front 03181

We love multi-functional products because of the convenience that comes along with it! This 2-in-1 hand-and-body wash cleanses intensely without leaving your skin feeling dehydrated, thanks to its active ingredients: hibiscus flower and antibacterial harakeke oil. Not only is this wash naturally scented with wild blackcurrant, spearmint leaf and cardamon, it has also been certified to be 100% vegan!

Antipodes Nirvana Hand & Body Wash retails at SGD51.20 and is available at selected Guardian stores and Guardian Online.


Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Mask Moisture 2

Another multi-functional product on our wish-list is the Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Mask, which doubles up as a lip cleanser to remove remnants of other lip products.

Lightweight but effective, this is a must-have in your summer kit for hydrated, juicy lips. The Lip Mask has two versions, Moisture and Recovery, and includes a handy little brush for ease of use and application.

Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Mask retails at SGD58 and is available at all Sulwhasoo boutiques, and counters at TANGS at Tang Plaza, and Takashimaya.


Tlc07548 V1 1

In Singapore’s hot and humid weather, it is common for us to experience chafing or repetitive friction when wearing tight clothing, which results in dull skin at the vulva area and inner thighs. TWO L(I)PS Diamond contains Ascorbyl Glucoside, a water-soluble form of Vitamin C that delivers a clear, radiant glow to the skin without any of the harshness like redness, irritation and even flaking that is often experienced with other Vitamin C serums, making it perfect for use on your delicate areas – as well as your face! 20 readers of Daily Vanity have tried it – find out what they thought here.

TWO L(I)PS Diamond retails at SGD135 for 30ml and is available at all Strip outlets and www.twolips.vip.



Clarins has been a go-to brand for facial contouring products (which, by the way, does not just include face slimming) since 1998. This new iteration of a classic cult product boasts some key benefits that we think all of us could do with a little more, such as skin uplifting and reduction of puffiness in the face. Apply this serum using the Manual Auto-Lifting Method of resting the full weight of your head on the palms of your hands to achieve maximum results.

Clarins V Shaping Facial Lift Contouring Serum retails at SGD122 and it available at all authorised Clarins counters, including the Clarins boutique at ION Orchard and Westgate, or on www.clarins.com.

When faced with sudden breakouts, many of us instinctively want to pick at them or hide the bumps behind thick layers of makeup though we know both of these short-term solutions aren’t good for our skin in the long run.

TISHA AC7, an acne cream fortified with invisible plant-based micro-needles that deliver 10 active ingredients into the skin, is a product that most Koreans (who have such good skin!) swear by. It is also paraben-free and mineral oil-free, making it suitable even if you have sensitive skin!
