Thanks to e-commerce, we have access to a few of our favourite beauty brands. Take Sephora, for example — hanging out there may not be the best thing to do at the moment but you can shop most of their offerings online.
Here’s what some beauty brands in Singapore are doing — so you can still keep up with your skincare and makeup.
Covid-19: WFH? Shop these beauty brands offering online discounts
What’s new: Pick between a satin or shine finish with the YSL Beaut 520 Rouge Pure Couture and Rouge Volupte Shine ($52 each), both of which are available in four hues of red. Meet shades like Dial R.E.D and Red is My Savior.
How to buy: At www.tangs.com. Receive two full-sized lipsticks with any purchase of two lipsticks. If you buy a YSL Beauty fragrance, you will also receive a full-sized lipstick (shades are pre-determined).
What’s new: Expect deals on brands like Sulwhasoo, PHS Hairsciene and more. Catching our attention was the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Retinol Capsules Night Serum that now comes with retinol in a capsule form. Expect a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation, and smoother-looking skin.
How to buy: At www.krisshop.com. From now till 24 April 2020, enjoy 15 per cent off regular-priced items with a minimum spend of $200. For free delivery, spend a minimum of $50.
The Body Shop
What’s new: With increased hand-washing during this period, it might result in drier-than-normal skin. To maintain soft, silky hands, try The Body Shop’s new scented hand washes. With the Shea Hand Wash ($10), come for the sweet nutty scent and stay for the rich, creamy texture.
How to buy: At www.lazada.sg. From now till 4 May 2020, enjoy free delivery with no minimum spend.
What’s new: To reduce odour from pollution or dust, go for the Phytodetox Spray Rehab Mist ($39.90). It is a hair mist with Eucalyptus essential oil, plus a sweet citrus note of Kumquat, and leaves behind a healthy freshness and clean feel when sprayed onto the roots and lengths.
How to buy: At www.phyto.sg. Use code “DETOX25” to receive 25 per cent off total order.
What’s new: The French skincare brand has just rolled out its Bright Plus Advanced Brightening Dark Spot-Targeting Serum ($182). We say this is a great time to start a brightening routine. You’re going out only when necessary and exposing your skin to much less UV rays – so you’re giving your brightening skincare the best chance to work as it doesn’t have to fight so hard to tamp down melanin production.
How to buy: At www.clarins.com.sg. Clarins continues its tradition of product sampling and you can ask for the Bright Plus Advanced Brightening Dark Spot-Targeting Serum to be sent to your home at a reduced shipping fee of $2.90. If you buy a full-sized product, you enjoy free delivery + three free samples. First-time buyers who spend a minimum of $100 get a 10 per cent discount + free delivery.
What’s new: If you need to restock your favourite cleansers or serums, check them off your list at Sephora. To try your hand at new makeup looks, experiment with Charlotte Tilbury’s new Eye Colour Magic Collection ($92). It features a spectrum of copper, blue, green and maroon shades with a sparkly, silky-smooth finish.
How to buy: At www.sephora.sg. Non-members enjoy 15 per cent off their first online purchase from 9-13 April 2020.
