Cle de Peau Beauté Key Radiance Le Serum

Cle de Peau Beaute Key Radiance Range

If you are looking to invest in an anti-ageing skincare routine, give Cle de Peau Beaute a shot with its new Key Radiance Range. The luxurious skincare label has launched its latest series of products to keep skin youthful, supple and radiant. Not many skincare brands offer an almost immediate effect for mature skin, but Cle de Peau Beaute does. The Key Radiance routine begins with the Le Serum, a watery formula with an algae complex to refresh and revitalise skin. Next, the Hydro-Softening or Clarifying Lotion exfoliates skin with Scutelleria Baicalensis (Huang Qin). For best results, use with the brand’s pillowy silk-woven cotton pads to smoothen skin. To finish the day routine, slather on the Protective Fortifying Cream or Emulsion; and use the Intensive Fortifying Cream or Emulsion for the night. Interestingly, the brand says it uses a proprietary “Time Tune” formula which is “attuned to the skin’s circadian rhythm”.

Crystal Tomato: Beyond Sun Protection SPF 75+

Any beauty junkie worth her salt would be popping a revolutionary Crystal Tomato supplement tablet every day. We have had it in our beauty regimen for years, and the results on our skin are crystal clear: smaller pores, and brighter, firmer and overall healthier looking skin. We saw results within a week, after we started popping the pill. And the clinical results prove it. Now, to complement the Crystal Tomato supplement, the brand has launched the Beyond Sun Protection sunscreen that was five years in the making. Lightweight, non-greasy and sheer on the skin, this formula packs a punch: More than 50 per cent protection against High Energy Visible (HEV) light. Also known as Blue Light, it can cause hyperpigmentation, redness, and stimulation of the production of free radicals that can accelerate skin ageing. (The scariest part about Blue Light? You’re staring at it now. Besides the sun, sources of this skin-damaging light are the screens of electronic devices and LED lights.) Persistent Pigment Darkening Protection 17+ and PA++++; highest ratings possible Anti-pollution and antioxidant …

Christian Louboutin Beauty launches in Singapore

Luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin is known for his ostentatious red-soled shoes inspired by the showgirls he has always admired. To complement his embellished stiletto offerings, Louboutin launched his beauty label in 2014 with lipsticks and nail polish for the woman who has everything. The over-the-top makeup packaging – with its weapon-like spike handle, bejewelled caps and gilded finish – give the products a collector’s item status. Prices match the form too: a lipstick costs $142. Beauty junkies in Singapore know what they want, and Louboutin Beauty is clued in. In June, it launched its first beauty counter in the city at Tangs Orchard, and it looks like a decadently delicious Parisian Boudoir of a femme fatale.

Aesop Gentle Facial Cleansing Milk

Aesop Gentle Facial Cleansing Milk

Not all cleansers are made equal (or sudsy). Aesop’s new Cleansing Milk is one of the gentlest we’ve come across. Containing moisturising panthenol, grapeseed and reinvigorating sandalwood, this milky emulsion is a pleasure to use. I’d recommend including this into your routine at the end of a long day, to help you unwind before bed. This Cleansing Milk glides on like a cream. Massage onto a dirty but dry face to lift away dirt and impurities. Then rinse with water. The formula left my skin clean, soft and supple. This product is perfect if you hate that squeaky clean but dry feeling after using a regular sudsy facial wash. It would also work well on drier skin types.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Progressive Renewal Treatment

1 Week Review: Elizabeth Arden Prevage Progressive Renewal Treatment

Intensive skincare treatments can be tricky. With the high concentration of ingredients, they could either work magic on the skin, or leave it irritated and prickly. And it seems Elizabeth Arden’s premium Prevage range may have gotten the formulas of its four-week Progressive Renewal Treatment right. The genius is in the four-bottles labelled 1 to 4. Each contains an increasing concentration of peeling and rejuvenating ingredients, to minimise irritation of the skin. This treatment range is made with polyhydroxy acid, and alpha hydroxy acid to exfoliate and encourage cell turnover. It is also blended with the antioxidant idebenone as well as phosphate salts to maintain a low PH level on the skin for more effectiveness. The active ingredients are kept active and more potent with a push button mechanism that mixes the idebenone only upon the first use. See it in action here (from 2:21). Each bottle is enough for at least a week’s supply. (Although because I prefer to be conservative when it comes to using intensive treatments, and use only one pipette each …

TBG Interview: Indie Lee Skincare founder, Indie Lee

A rare brain tumour was the rude awakening for Indie Lee. She was given six months to live, but survived it. The doctors said it could be the result of an unhealthy environment and the products she was applying on her skin. Following the brand’s debut at Sephora Singapore’s recent Spring/Summer 2019 launch, Indie Lee shares with The Beauty Gazette her trigger for a fuller life, and the creation of a  cleaner beauty brand. After I was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor in 2008, and recovered from it, I made it my mission to educate and empower others to live their healthiest lives. Our products serve to underline this message. When I first started the brand, I had no beauty experience and no industry connections – I was previously in accounting. But I was on a mission and I found my way. For us, it’s really speaking to a psychographic versus a demographic. We aren’t chasing one profile or age group. We want to connect with people undergoing a transformation in their life, be it pregnancy, a …
