Whether at 25, 35, or beyond, skincare is important for the shared goal of optimal skin health. These days, even cosmetics are getting in on skincare by infusing ingredients like natural oils and skin-soothing agents so that the products do more than sit pretty on your skin. Here we look at a handful of January beauty favourites to help your skin not just look great on the outside, but work deep in the skin to push out a healthy glow, and a couple of makeup products to tie the au natural look together.


Get your hands on the limited CNY edition of L’Occitane’s popular Immortelle Reset Oil-in-serum now in a gradient bottle of red and gold. The product is a bestseller in Asia, with one of the reasons being its lightweight formula that works so well for our hot weather. Ingredients include Marjoram to awaken the skin at a cellular level, and Acmella Oleacera to relax facial muscles.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss

Bobbi Brown’s newest gloss packs nutrient-rich botanicals like coffee seed and Kukui Nut Oil, giving your lips a slick of shine with conditioning moisture. Neither sticky or heavy, the range features 12 shades ranging from nudes to brights with glass-like shine.

Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Mascara

“Ya done know that @fentybeauty was coming to dominate the mascara game too!!” Indeed, Rihanna’s sassy caption on Instagram was just the start of the beauty world’s recent obsession with Full Front Mascara. Promising “eye-opening full-on, fanned-out lashes”, we love how it boldly amplifies your lash look with zero clumping. The best part is both its “flat-to-fat brush” and sweat-resistant formula, so even when you’re rocking a more or less makeup-free look, you can still give your lashes a light lift.

Dermalogica Phyto Nature Firming Serum

Think healthy ageing instead of anti-ageing and be kind to your skin with Dermalogica’s new Phyto Nature Firming Serum. This is a dual-phase serum that contains highly-active botanicals, and the advancements of skincare tech to help firm up, reinforce skin defences, lifts and revitalises the skin.

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Available at Sephora, Indie Lee is a brand born out of the aim to live clean, which includes and starts with the products we use on our face and body. Founder Indie Lee was inspired to start the brand during her personal journey in needing to completely rid her system of toxins. Products are many, although a favourite is the Brightening Cleanser that also acts as a make-up remover and mask in one, with Vitamin C, potent antioxidants and plant extracts.
