Cleanser with a Difference
Searching for a new beauty product to add to your skincare shelf? The bestselling treatment cleansing milk ($55) from popular Japanese beauty brand Covermark is unique in that it transforms into nanosized particles upon contact with water to thoroughly remove makeup. Unlike most cleansers in the market, this product is gentle enough to be used on your lash extensions. It also contains 10 types of essential oils including orange and wild rose for a rejuvenating, spa-like experience at home! Shop the full range at Takashimaya, Isetan Scotts, and BHG Bugis.
Online beauty store Powella carries a curated collection of natural and cruelty-free makeup, haircare and body care products personally sourced by founder Sital Gill Phichitsingh. Get smooth, shiny and healthy locks with Holistic Hair, a trichologist-made natural haircare brand hailing from New Zealand. The range of shampoos, conditioners and styling products are formulated with plant-based extracts including nourishing manuka honey and calming lavender.
Have you heard of Profhilo? This anti-ageing injectable has been making waves since launching in Singapore! Formulated with pure hyaluronic acid, the bio-remodelling injectable promises to tighten loose skin, smoothen wrinkles, reduce scars and increase skin hydration levels. Compared to the average skin booster, Profhilo contains around five times more hyaluronic acid. You can look forward to firmer, lifted and brightened skin after one month.

Gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, they’re also free of nasties like parabens, mineral oils and fragrances.
Ask the expert: “How can I pull off a red lip colour without looking over the top?”
In this new column, NMITA DOAK, founder of award-winning makeup brand Amplio, answers our questions on makeup and more.
Let’s call out the elephant in the room. For many of us, red lips are thought of as more suitable for an evening occasion. I dislike this concept of limiting such a vibrant and sophisticated colour to only a small part of our lives. Red is a “power colour” that can be worn at any time of the day! Knowing your skin undertones is important in finding the right shade of red for you. If you have cooler undertones, a cool red with blue undertones like Amplio Rocket Red Lipstay and Lip Stylo will complement and brighten fair skin naturally without making you look washed out. These lip products have a beautiful way of complementing each other and changing up your look. If you have warmer undertones (golden or yellow), I’d suggest something in the orange spectrum such as the MAC Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick.
For medium skin tones, you can wear pretty much any red lipstick you like! The Amplio Dazzling Drishti Lip Gloss or Cabernet Merlot Lipstay will look amazing on you. For darker skin tones, go bold! A deep, rich, brown-toned red that has depth, like the Amplio Ruby Berry, will make your lips feel and look lush.
