Living in Malaysia, you’ll relate to wanting a lightweight skincare product won’t leave your skin looking shiny and weighed down. If you do, try the new Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum by Aesop. It packs antioxidants from grape seed, green tea, and parsley seeds, as well as Vitamin E. This one is extra special because it forms a breathable film on the skin using extracts of red algae and tara gum, to guard against airborne pollutants. The serum is suited to normal, combination and sensitive skin.

Frédéric Malle designs its newest fragrance with the master perfumer Anne Flipo, who created some iconic scents including Libre Intense by Yves Saint Laurent, McQueen by Alexander McQueen, and Brit Rhythm by Burberry. Synthetic Jungle draws inspiration from nature — bright, lush and mysterious. The scent is made with basil, hyacinth, lily of the valley, jasmine, and ylang yang oil. There’s slight tang with black currant, along with patchouli and light leather notes for a clean finish.

There are 144 variations of butter based scrubs with added Australian white clay to gently detoxify the skin.The shopping experience starts with selecting a scent, including options like Ice Lavender Latte, Fluffy Sakura Snow and Juicy Peach Frappe. From there, you can pick your desired level of foam, grain density and exfoliation level. These personalised body scrubs also make the cutest gift, but you should make it clear that it isn’t a dessert — they look too delicious.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch Concealer
Anastasia Beverly Hills has just launched a creamy new concealer that colour corrects and masks with a smooth feel. The product also primes skin as it conceals the under eye area, or anywhere else applied, with amino acid pigments for immediate adhesion to the surface. When applied, there’s still lots of time to blend and dab before the creamy formulas settles into the skin with a soft-blur finish.
OLEHENRIKSEN Lemonade Smoothing Scrub
More bath time bliss arrives with OLEHENRIKSEN’s Lemonade Smoothing Scrub for your face which contains both chemical and physical exfoliants. Powerhouse AHAs and sugar grains work their magic by helping to dissolve the “glue” that holds on dead skin cells and scrubs them off for instantly softer, polished skin. The exfoliants are soft enough to go easy on your skin as they dissolve and melt when met with water.

Supergoop! has just introduced us to its Glowscreen Body SPF 40, formulated with light-reflecting minerals and nourishing emollients to keep the sun from stripping your skin dry.
