Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream Moisturiser

Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream Moisturiser is great for a lot of things. Firstly, it eases away the dark circles under my eyes. I have pretty big eyebags because of my big eyes and there's not much I can do about that but this gel-cream moisturiser does its magic to reduce my dark circles. It's also great for dry skin. You might find this odd but I have dry skin even during summer especially after taking a bath/shower (which is a lot during this hot season!) and this does the job. Finally, it's vegan so I can't really ask for anything more.

Hermès Limited-Edition Matte Lipstick

Hermès’s limited-edition lipstick shades are the perfect additions to the fall lipstick lineup. Designed for the F/W 2021 season, the three new shades are intense, long-lasting with a velvety matte finish but are not at all drying. My favourite shade is “Rose Magenta”, this cool and bold pink will add a pop of colour to any makeup looks.

Cubed Body Butter

I've been using Cubed Body Butter for the dryness around my arms and legs. It also does wonders for my red and thickened skin whenever I scratch myself–which happens quite a lot when you're outside and especially when you're close to nature. My back also suffers from a bad case of skin rashes and this body butter definitely helps with the itchiness and the dark spots. If you have eczema, this is an excellent product to use.

PMD Beauty Clean Pro Facial Cleansing Device

I’ve recently started using PMD Beauty's Clean Pro Facial Cleansing Device to wash my face at night and it has quickly become one of the best parts of my night routine. The device comes with a rose quartz side which heats up within a minute, while the other side is a silicone brush that can be used with your favourite face cleanser.

I love washing my face with the silicone side, followed by a gentle massage around my eyes, nose and cheeks with the heated rose quartz. The brand says that your pores open up with the heat, allowing serums and products to absorb better afterwards. I always feel like a million bucks after my evening skincare routine because of it.

Moor Power Black Mascara

My good friend and beauty entrepreneur, Natasha Moor created the most incredible mascara. It's called Moor Power Black Mascara and is available on Sephora's Hong Kong site. It curls, lengthens and volumizes my lashes, which is great because I used to get eyelash extensions all the time. Now I no longer need to. Two coats of this bad boy and you're good to go. Bonus: it doesn't smudge whatsoever!

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF40

To remind myself to wear sunscreen more often, (UV rays contribute to about 80 per cent of skin ageing and skin cancer!), I’ve been trying to put a bottle of sunscreen in every corner of my apartment. To do that, I’ve been exploring different sunscreen products such as my recent favourite, Supergoop's Unseen Sunscreen SPF40. I like that the formula is hydrating enough for my eczema-prone skin without making it feel oily or heavy. There's zero white cast since the gel-like formula is completely clear.

Becca Light Shifter Dewing Tint Moisturiser

When I heard the news about Becca Cosmetics closing its doors forever in September, I went on a mission to try out their beloved products and stock up on them before it was too late. Among my favourites is the Light Shifter Dewing Tint Moisturiser, which balances coverage and shimmer for a natural, healthy-looking glow.

I also rediscovered my love for Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop—the first highlighter that I ever owned. Fortunately, they will not be discontinuing this product and will be selling it under Smashbox Cosmetics.

Miss Dior Eau de Parfum

The new Miss Dior Eau de Perfum is on my must-have list this month for one reason: it is now customisable! You can now adorn each hand-crafted couture bow of the fragrance with My ABCDior charms to make your bottle extra special. For the uninitiated, every Miss Dior bow is unique (in true couture fashion) because the flowers are embroidered in a random way. While I can’t resist personalised beauty products, this signature scent by the maison has always been one of my go-to fragrances thanks to its sweet, floral notes. PS. The new Dior online beauty boutique launches on October 7, so get ready to shop your favourite products.

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil

I have dry, sensitive skin that's prone to little skin bumps if I use any products that contain skin-irritating ingredients, so I'm obsessed with clean beauty products that have fewer ingredients in them. Non-comedogenic facial oils are my lifesaver. I recently purchased Indie Lee's 100% Squalane Facial Oil after reading very positive reviews online, and love it so much!

My skin feels a lot less dry and I have not had a single breakout ever since I switched over to this product. I've been using it every morning and night, and wake up feeling like my complexion has improved significantly (despite blasting the air conditioner in my bedroom throughout the night to survive this hot heat)!
