Fuzz free, fuss-free!
Waxing is rarely comfortable, but it does help to have a quick, efficient and skilled practitioner. Armed with 17 years of experience in the industry, beauty expert Diana King has earned herself a loyal clientele who swear by her lightning-speed waxing. Each waxing service is capped at 10 minutes – even for the nether regions. Diana uses honey wax from the US that is suitable for sensitive and eczema-prone skin. #01-02 Sin Ming Centre, 8 Sin Ming Road. 9001 0274 | dianaking-waxingguru.com
Moisturising Magic Infused with vegetable-derived glycerin and biofermented hyaluronic acid, this lightweight body cream ($20) by The Body Shop promises to sink into damp skin within seconds and provide 48 hours of hydration. We’re loving the British Rose aroma, enriched with organic almond milk from Alicante in Spain and community-trade English rose essence from Herefordshire.
Korean beauty brand Innisfree is revolutionising the art of makeup with its new Smart Drawing collection, a range of cosmetics designed to look like fun paint tubes. Easy to use and beginner-friendly, these products ($12.50 each) come with a built-in brush applicator that glides on seamlessly, helping you achieve that natural glow.
Stiff shoulders from long hours at the computer? A stressful week at work? Treat yourself to a well-deserved massage in the comfort of your own home! Earth body is a newly launched home massage service that delivers certified and experienced massage therapists straight to your door so you don’t have to head out for your spa fi x. We recommend the hot stone massage ($150, 90 minutes), a relaxing treatment that helps to relax muscles, reduce anxiety and promote sounder sleep. earth-body.com
Inspired by colourful macarons, this limited edition mini pressed cheek-colour ($37) by Les Merveilleuses Ladurée is at the top of our lust list. Formulated with Damask rose extract and organic lavender extract, the travel-friendly blush has a sweetly relaxing violet fragrance.
We can’t stress enough how important it is to use sunscreen every day, and Aesop’s latest Protective Facial Lotion SPF30 ($80) is a great one to have in the makeup bag for on-the-go touch-ups. This multi-tasker contains green tea, Vitamin E and other skin-fortifying antioxidants to hydrate and protect the skin from daily sun exposure and pollutant damage.
