1. Huda Beauty Glow Coco Hydrating Mist
Our masks and makeup don’t go well – we already know that. That’s why priming, setting, and refreshing have become one of the most important routines we need to go through especially on days we’re out and about.
This is why the new Glow Coco Hydrating Mist by Huda Beauty is on our shopping list. A triple-duty mist that primes your skin, set your makeup, and refresh it anytime of the day, this spray is formulated with coconut milk, coconut water, and coconut oil. These three ingredients are well-known for their soothing, softening, and balancing properties to give your skin the hydrating lift that it needs.
Extra tip: Store it in the fridge to get that extra refreshing sensation.
Retails for S$56. It is currently available at Sephora.

A makeup-and-skincare hybrid? Sounds amazing!
Becca has launched the Becca Zero range of products, which includes the No Pigment Virtual Foundation, a product that offers the skin-smoothing effect of a foundation without the use of any pigment. This is possible thanks to its Clear Light Blur Technology that is able to manipulate light to smooth out skin and blur out imperfection.
This product is infused with hyaluronic acid and contains no silicone, all while offering oil control benefits. With its gel-like texture, it leaves a cooling sensation upon application and a transparent-matte finish. It sounds perfect for those days you want to look like I-woke-up-like-this in a video call.

3. Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Face Suncare SPF50
Suncare products, which are made of water-soluble filters and silicones, are notorious for impacting the marine eco-system, particularly when it comes to the destruction of coral reefs.
If you’ve been trying to look for one that isn’t just safe for your skin but is also safe for marine life, consider the new Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Face Suncare.
This sunscreen doesn’t just provide high sun protection, it also delivers anti-ageing benefits, thanks to the patented antioxidant complex used in the formula.
You’ll also love its lightweight and non-sticky texture, and how it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Besides treating acne by applying it onto affected spots, this can also be used all over the face when you’re not breaking out as a form of prevention for scarring, acne, and blackheads. We’re certainly adding this to our cart!
