Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb

We know that using age-appropriate products is an important decision if you want a good skincare routine. If you’re in your 20s, you shouldn’t be using products meant for teenagers, or use products that are targeted at matured skin; your concerns and skin types are very different. If you’re a Millenial, you might want to check out the new products by Origins. The Original Skin Renewal Serum is formualted with Willowherb that targets at skin concerns people in this generation have: rough texture, enlarged pores, stressed skin, loss of radiance. Besides skincare benefits, this serum also carries a blend of optics that can visibly blur imperfection, giving your skin a flawless finish. This sounds like a great primer for makeup.


It retails at SGD78 at all Origins counters, together with the new Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay (SGD50).

Here’s a fine duo

Feed your skin with spring water

innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Powder

Korean brand, Innisfree, has launched a moisturising skincare range, the Jeju Sparkling Mineral line, which harnesses the high carbon and mineral content of pure hot spring water drawn from Jeju Island’s Sanbangsan Mountain. The innate high carbonic content and 13 minerals present in the hot spring water trigger a penetrative hydrating effect that keeps skin moisturised and supple to the touch. Of the range of products, the most interesting is probably the Jeju Sparkling Mineral Powder (SGD3). This is a cleansing powder that dissolves in water to diffuse into a carbonated formula that revitalises skin upon massaging. The addition of Jeju tangerine peel extracts also brightens up skin tone, and cleanses away residual dirt in pores.

The power of stem cells


Did you know that the Swiss apple is known for healing itself? Tapping on the power of stem cells technology with the new Phyto Stem Cell Concentrate by d’skin harnesses the healing power of this botanical ingredient. This contains a blend of Argan fruit stem cells and rare Uttwiler Spatlauber Swiss apple stem cells that rejuvenates ageing skin. It works by activating your skin’s own stem cells to promote a healthier and more radiant complexion. Use it either on its own or before a moisturiser, this serum retails at SGD168, and is available only at d’skin outlets, located in Novena, Toa Payoh, Kovan and Seletar Mall.

Clients|La Mer

Every skin-loving beauty junkie would have heard of the Crème de la Mer. The product was formulated by physicist Dr. Max Huber, who experienced burns in a laboratory accident. In the midst of his personal crusade to smooth the look of his skin, he fermented nutrient-rich kelp with other natural ingredients, after being inspired by the healing energies of the sea. 12 years later, the Crème de la Mer was born, and has been an iconic product since. Celebrating its success in conjunction with the nation’s birthday, La Mer has released a limited-edition jar that’s finished with brushed amber gold. This exclusive jar will be available from mid August 2015 onwards, in 60ml at SGD480 and 500ml at SGD3,150. The Amber Heritage Creme de la Mer 500ml is exclusively available at TANGS at Tang Plaza.
