2019 is almost over, so give yourself a pat on the back for making it through most of the year. This September, we have gorgeous niche fragrances, skincare to brighten stubbornly dull skin, assorted makeup palettes to create versatile looks, and a haircare essential you probably didn’t know you needed. All in all, we’d say that September looks to be a good beauty month.
Innisfree Cherry Blossom Line, $22-$31
For the first time in three years, Innisfree is launching an all-new range of products as part of its “Jeju Heritage Ingredient” line. The much-anticipated Jeju Cherry Blossom Line aims to brighten and even out complexion by combating the root cause of all skin concerns: a lack of hydration. Besides skin-brightening cherry blossom leaf extracts, the collection also makes use of beet-derived betaine to lock moisture into the epidermis.
Lunasol Illuminating Color Glow Collection, $30-$88
Japanese makeup palettes are usually filled with neutral, earthy and subtle tones. However, Lunasol seeks to buck the trend with its latest Illuminating Color Glow Collection. The collection includes four vibrant and colourful eyeshadow palettes, three cheek palettes, and a lavender-hued shimmery eyeliner to brighten tired eyes.
Ryo Hair Loss Care Scalp Deep Cleansing Scaler EX, $19.90
Most people tend not to pay attention to their scalp, thinking that a good shampoo and conditioner is all it takes for great hair. However, did you know that the health of your scalp can make or break your hair, literally? On top of that, the early warning signs of hair loss are scarily subtle: limp, flat hair, a gradually widening part, and an itchy and dry scalp. To make sure your scalp and hair are as healthy as can be, gently exfoliate your scalp twice a week with the Scalp Deep Cleansing Scaler EX.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads (Limited Edition), $50
First Aid Beauty is celebrating its 10th birthday with a series of limited edition bestsellers, and we can’t help but coo over the cute packaging. If you don’t know what to get from First Aid Beauty, try these Facial Radiance Pads. It’s saturated with glycolic and lactic acid to resurface and brighten the skin. You can use it every day, but make sure to wear sunscreen during the day.
An easy way to “refresh” your mindset is to invest in a new perfume, since your sense of smell is so strongly linked to memories. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a fresh start, with a fresh new fragrance? Floraiku AO is the brand’s latest addition to the Forbidden Incense collection. The scent combines warm myrrh and tonka bean with zesty mandarin and green fig to create a surprisingly seductive green scent.
