SK-II Atmosphere Airy Light UV Cream

Despite feeling almost weightless and barely-there on the skin, SK-II’s new Atmosphere Airy Light UV Cream packs SPF 50+ PA++++ to keep dark spots and wrinkles at bay. This untinted sunscreen also contains SK-II’s signature pitera skincare ingredient. Moisturising and easily absorbed, Atmosphere Airy Light also left my skin feeling supple. As a final step to my skincare routine, it prepares my face for a smoother application of base makeup and ensures that it lasts longer.

Start the Lunar Year of the Dog with the right beauty essentials

Before the celebrations for Chinese New Year draws to a close, here are The Beauty Gazette’s picks this Spring for an auspicious start to 2018. Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Blush Volupte Hope & Joy Edition – for its limited edition collectible packaging with red blooms against a radiant gold. Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon – one-swipe long-lasting pigmented formula that is non-drying. Lightweight but just a gentle glide would get you an intense shade.

How Behati Prinsloo-Levine keeps her skin glowing

Victoria’s Secret angel/ supermodel, wife to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, mom to year-old Dusty Rose, and new face of SK-II. Behati Prinsloo-Levine shares how she keeps her skin healthy and dewy, with The Beauty Gazette. What is your current skincare routine like? Now that I’m a mom, I have less time on my hands. So I prefer skincare products that are easy to use, luxurious and pampering. For me, that’s the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, which I use after gentle cleansing and toning. I love how this miracle water is packed with vitamins and amino acids and addresses all of my skincare concerns. It has really simplified my skincare routine, and is so effective in giving me a radiant and natural glow. I’m also always using the SK-II Mid-day Miracle Essence as a facial hydrating mist throughout the day to stay refreshed and hydrated. What issues do you have with your skin, and how do you deal with them? I love the beach and playing sports outdoors, so pigmentation is something that I’ve always had. I …

SK-II RNA Power Magnetic Kit

A good beauty gadget can do wonders for the beauty routine. SK-II launched its first gadget, the Magnetic Wand, for use with its Stempower Eye Cream some two years ago. Made to boost absorption and gently massage the delicate eye area, it taps on the waves of bi-polar magnetic particles. Earlier this month, SK-II debuted its second gadget act with the new Magnetic Booster – which looks like a spinning top but with a flat base – at Shilla Duty Free in Changi Airport. To be used together with the RNA Power Cream and RNA Essence, the Magnetic Booster uses a magnetic micro pulse technology to deliver up to 7,000 gentle vibration per minute, so skin is massaged and the active ingredients are absorbed deeper into the skin. After application of the the skincare product, slide the Booster from the centre of the face, outwards. Powered by two LR 44 batteries (the small tablet-sized, flat and silver ones), the Booster definitely worked for me. The RNA cream is relatively rich and hydrates the skin thoroughly. With the …

How Cate Blanchett prepared her skin for the Oscars

Trust me, I’ve seen Cate Blanchett up close during a face-to-face interview. Besides the fact that she is lovely and humble, her skin glows with a radiance that cannot be faked. Of course, she has good genes for sure; but an arsenal of effective skincare products definitely helps. (I know from experience that the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence does not work for everyone. But when it does, you can’t live without it.) Cate looked gorgeous as usual at the Oscars red carpet in Armani Prive. Here’s a sneak peek at what happened behind-the-scenes when she was getting her skin and make-up ready. Here’s what Cate’s make-up artist Jeanine Lobell did to enhance the star’s megawatt glow: 1. Prep skin with the Facial Treatment Essence 2. Follow with the new Facial Treatment Oil 3. Seal skin with the anti-ageing RNA moisturiser 4. Mix a few drops of the Treatment Oil into the foundation for extra dewiness. 5. Spritz Mid-Day Miracle Essence over make-up to set it and further hydrate skin. In an exclusive e-mail interview with …
