Brighten and make it wrinkle-free

Sulwhasoo TimeTreasure

With all that work piling on at this time of the year, most of us are left super exhausted and our skin suffers from the brunt of all that stress. We age faster as the stress increases and it really shows on our faces.

Sulwhasoo, a holistic beauty brand with Asian philosophy, has just released a new generation of its best-selling premium anti-aging solution, the Sulwhasoo TimeTreasure Line. Fortified with red pine, which is known in the medicinal herbal arena for its anti-ageing benefits, the new formula is further enhanced to ensure more potent efficacies.

We are particularly excited about the TimeTreasure Renovating Eye Cream EX (SGD338), which helps to brighten and reduce the appearance of wrinkles under the eye area. Through the usage of the Red Pine Capsule Technology, delivery of active ingredients into the skin is further enhanced, ensuring fast and effortless absorption, making skin look firmer, more quickly.

The entire line is available island-wide from September 2015.

Care for your peepers

Damask Rose Restoring Eye Cream_Product Shot Open, 15ml, $50

Another way to ensure youthful-looking eyes is the Crabtree and Evelyn Damask Rose Restoring Eye Cream. This eye cream contains the “everlasting” rose of Jericho that is known for its skin-nourishing benefits. Massage the under eye area using the metal applicator that’s smartly built with the product and be greeted with a cooling sensation that is oh-so-pleasing, and relieve puffiness. The hyaluronic acid that is released from the applicator increases moisture and improves skin’s smoothness.

This product retails at SGD50 and will be available from 24 September 2015 onwards at all Crabtree & Evelyn boutiques.

Korean beauty products never go out of style.

Especially not Innisfree, a popular Korean brand that has taken our shores by storm ever since it found itself on our little island. This month, the brand is releasing its latest lip range, the Vivid Tint Rouge, which promises long-lasting colour that is light and moisturising (read: camellia oil and shea butter) on the lips. (Do we hear a collective sigh of relief from all you lazy beauty loving people out there?)

Best part of it all? This range has 10 beautiful, luscious shades that will, for sure, add a pop of colour to whatever you’re wearing on that day.

Innisfree’s Vivid Tint Rouge retails for SGD16 and is available in stores from 1 October 2015
