With a ton of beauty and skincare products dropping every month, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and confused as to what are the latest products you should be trying. From the latest makeup launches to updated skincare formulas that we can’t stop talking about, here are some of our top picks that you won’t regret adding to your beauty shelf.
One of the most skin- comforting cleansers we’ve come across. The foam removes dirt, makeup and pollution, and gently exfoliates with tamarind pulp extract, an AHA. It’s soap-and SLS-free; instead, it uses organic saponaria extract, a naturally lathering plant. Skin feels clean and so soft; we love the uplifting scent too.
From daily handling to chemical treatments, your hair really takes a beating. This conditioner repairs, rebuilds and hydrates hair using collagen. It comes in Power Shine or Damage Rescue – both are free of parabens, colourants and alcohol. Use it daily or as a hair treatment.
Eyeshadow palettes, with their colours and finishes, can be intimidating. But we’re in love with this pearl-inspired one (the copper-aubergine is my current fave). The colours go on sheer and pretty, and are mistake-proof. For a full look, layer the shades from darkest to lightest on the eyelids.
The liquid foundation gives medium-to- full coverage, while nourishing and protecting skin with hyaluronic acid, noni fruit extract and natural oils. It creates a radiant surface that softly reflects light, so the skin looks flawless and dewy.
Our dehydrated skin just glows when we use it – and so should yours. The plum-based (three types, all vit C-rich) formula also contains hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture. It’s so lightweight that it’s easy to layer on other skincare after. Our fave way to use it is as a mid-afternoon hydration boost.
If you dread using a hand sanitiser because it makes your hands dry and rough, you’re not alone. Re:erth’s first bodycare product deeply moisturises and contains nano- encapsulated retinol to restore skin elasticity – so sanitise away.
Launched in 2020, Delphini was founded by a group of biochemists from Chulalongkorn University, one of the most renowned institutions in Thailand. With a passion for skincare, they were determined to develop a result-oriented skincare range, created with safe and effective ingredients suitable for all skin types. The brand made its debut with a single product: the Delphini Intense Serum with Anti-Pollution Complex (SGD88). Formulated with a mix of natural and bio-ingredients including hyaluronic acid, 10% niacinamide and Scutellaria baicalensis root extract (commonly known as Chinese skullcap or golden herb), the patented serum has been proven to battle seven different skin problems caused by pollution. With continued use of the serum, the brand assures that even maskne can be dealt with effectively.
If you’re an avid user of SK-II’s pitera™ essence, you’ll know the brand releases collectable limited-edition versions from time to time. This year, SK-II draw’s inspiration from the unique style of girls in Tokyo, with the limited edition bottle dressed in traditional Japanese Kimonos with bold and vivid colours of the season.
When it comes to perfecting your skincare routine, cleansing is an essential step towards healthier-looking skin. The dirty truth is that most cleansers on the market contain synthetic ingredients and harsh irritants derived from petrochemicals and have non-sustainable packaging – bad for the skin, bad for the environment. The good news is that Caudalie has just launched their new Vinoclean range that has no silicones and harsh sulphates, leaving your skin clean yet healthy.
If you prefer your eyeshadow palettes on the neutral side, Kose’s Mellow Feeling Eyes palette is great for everyday use. The eye shadows come with a translucent finish, giving your lids a pearlescent finish that will last up ’til 10 hours. There are three sets in total–blue base, neutral and yellow base–and each set contains four colors each, so you can select the brown that suits your skin most.

The treatment lotion is infused with multi-biotic technology, which is formulated to include both prebiotic mushrooms and probiotic Patented Lactobacillus.

Founded by three women, Rosé All Day is an Indonesian beauty brand that creates beauty products that are the perfect essentials for an everyday “no-makeup” makeup look. Formulated without parabens, cruelty-free and Halal-certified, the brand’s products keep the focus on enhancing one’s natural beauty without concealing it.
