Started out as a go-to apothecary of the neighbourhood in a street corner of New York in 1851, to say Kiehl’s has come a long way is, an understatement.
To celebrate its 170th Anniversary milestone, the illustrious skincare label churns out a limited edition series of old-favourites.
We’re particularly enamoured with the Heritage Rosewater Toner, which smells heavenly, and feels gentle yet refreshing. We’re petitioning for it to be made a constant in the collection.
Also look out for the Essence Oils, named after the moods we all want to be in: Love Luring (jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang), Fortune Seeking (citrus and white tea), Jinx Removing (vetiver and sandalwood).
The crowd-favourites come in classic limited edition white and gold jars and bottles.
Because the Kiehl’s bestsellers always deserve some space in your skincare cabinet. Afterall, they’ve got 170 years to prove it.
To say the least, 2020 has been a tough year for all of us.
But still, the show must go on.
Laura Mercier’s limited edition holiday collection is inspired by the art of ballet.
Pastel pinks, corals, nudes are awash in this collection.
The Opening Night Cheek Palette ($80) is a pretty trio of a coral blush, illuminating highlighter and bronzer. Embossed with the pattern of grossgrain ribbons.
While the Prima Ballerina Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($50) is a handy palette with six neutral shades in a variety of textures for a multi-dimensional eye makeup look.
The star of the collection is the aptly-named Piece de Resistance Eye & Cheek Essentials ($180). There are 15 easy-to-wear and versatile eyeshadow shades and a quartet of blush, bronzer and highlighter.
As a clear sign of Sulwhasoo’s readiness to take on the international market with its commercial festivities, it has launched its first ever advent calendar.
Traditionally, religious advent calendars are used to count down the days to Christmas, with little gifts and puzzles behind each “door”.
Sulwhasoo’s version is made up of little pastel paper boxes filled with almost its entire range of skincare items. So if you’ve never tried the brand’s formulas before; or are looking for travel-sized items for your post-gym skincare routine, this advent calendar is a good purchase.
Out of the 24 boxes in the set, four items are a sizeable 30ml and above:
Hydro-Aid Moisturising Soothing Mist (30ml)
Clarifying Mask EX (50ml)
Overnight Vitalizing Mask EX (50ml)
Radiance Energy Mask (30ml)
There are also four 25g bars of herbal soaps
A surprise ginseng-scented candle is also thrown into the mix.
The rest of the items range between 3.5ml and 15ml.
This is also a fun set to get for Christmas parties; just let guests pick out the boxes as door gifts.
