Pamper your locks with Olaplex’s newest No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing serum. The leave-in serum is suitable for all hair types and is formulated with the brand’s hero bond-building technology – sodium hyaluronate and red algae extract – to help smooth, protect, and prevent the hair from breakage. Apply a small amount to damp or towel-dried hair and comb the product through each strand or section. Lastly, leave it to air-dry or blow-dry for a smooth finish.

Check out Lush’s travel-friendly toothpaste tabs if you’re planning a trip soon. There are four types: Boom!, Dirty, Refresher and Tastes Like. Boom! is perfect if you want to achieve crystal white teeth. Thanks to the charcoal content and good stain removal capacity, Boom! also tastes like a fizzy soda. For something refreshing, consider Dirty for its spearmint flavour with a herbal touch, while Refresher offers a playful way to cleanse the palette with its candy-like taste and look. Lastly, Sparkle is excellent for those who crave a sweet yet citrusy taste. All you need is to nibble the toothpaste tab before brushing your teeth. 

Elevate your beauty routine with Clarins’ new Extra-Firming Day and Night Cream. In time, our skin will experience a loss of its firmness and elasticity due to the thinning of the epidermis and collagen loss. Thanks to the critical ingredients of kangaroo flower and organic mitracarpus, the power duo helps fight the appearance of saggy skin and enhances collagen while firming the skin. The formula also includes a sweet camellia and rose scent for that fresh feeling with every application.
