Time flies, and it has been two decades since Prestige burst on to the local luxury publishing scene.
We know that many of you are our loyal readers and partners, and our team sends our deepest gratitude and appreciation for your years of faithfulness, belief and support. Thank you so much – we couldn’t have done it without you.
This time last year, you were probably partying away with us at our annual ball. While it’s a pity that the pandemic threw a spanner in the works for our 20th birthday bash, we are determined to not let it cast a shadow over our celebrations.
So, in partnership with History of Whoo, we gifted the 2020 Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence 7th Special Edition box to our beautiful friends to spread cheer in this turbulent time. Each set, available while stocks last at all major The History of Whoo beauty counters island-wide, includes a jumbo-sized Bichup First Moisture Essence (130 ml), the Bichup Moisture Anti-Aging Mist (30ml), Gongjinhyang: Soo Vital Hydrating Balancer (20 ml), Emulsion (20 ml) and Sun Fluid (13 ml).
Reformulated with energy-regulating, moisturising and purifying oriental herbs — including white atractylis, milk vetch root, dried mandarin peel, jujube, pure yeast and lotus flower extracts — the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence helps clarify the complexion, promote blood circulation and absorbency in skin to amplify the effectiveness of next-step skincare, while providing long-lasting hydration.
Below, 20 friends of Prestige share their favourite product in the set and why they love it.
