Launched in 2009, Three Cosmetics is a hit with beauty junkies because it pays attention to the small details.
The texture is fine and luxurious; the scent soothing; while the products are gentle on the skin.
Each skincare product contains at least 85 per cent natural ingredients, such as the essential oils of frankincense, neroli, rosa damascena, and eucalyptus leaf.
They are also blended with ingredients from Japan: marine silt from Okinawa; bitter melon extract from Kyoto; Apple extract from Aomori; camellia seed oil and mandarin orange extract from Shizuoka; hot spring water of Oita; Yuzu seed oil of Kochi and fossilised coral powder from Yonaguni Island.
The simple but luxe-feel of the packaging is another plus.
Besides skincare, the brand also offers base and colour cosmetics, as well as haircare.
The Beauty Gazette reviews four of the brand’s bestselling products.
- Three Balancing Lotion (S$95): A watery lotion that balances and lightly moisturises the skin. Contains sandalwood oil, frankincense oil, bergamot fruit oil, marjoram and rosemary oils; apple and rose geranium waters; bitter melon, cucumber and loofah extracts. We ❤️ this.
- Three Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation (S$75): Blended with a nourishing blend of inca inchi, argan, jojoba, camellia seed, sea buckthorn, acai fruit, yuzu seed, evening primrose, and rosehip oils. Little wonder then that you will get a dewy and translucent-looking complexion with this medium to high coverage foundation. Also offers SPF 36/ PA+++ 👌🏻
- Velvet Lust Lipstick (S$48): Creamy but very lightweight with a glossy finish. Opaque colour in one or two coats.
- Whisper Gloss for the Eyes (S$45): Moisturising creamy glossy shadow. Subtle but buildable colour.
