1/12 Dior Prestige La Lotion Essence de Rose
Harnessing the regenerative power of the Granville rose—the first rose developed specifically by Dior for cosmetic treatments—the new La Lotion Essence de Rose is the first essential step to your anti-ageing skincare routine. The lotion essence moisturises skin and boosts its cell energy to strengthen the skin barrier and restore its original glow, and applies comfortably with the consistency of a milky lotion.

2/12 Kanebo Comfort Stretchy Wash
Washing your face shouldn't dry it out, and Kanebo's Comfort Stretchy Wash ensures your skin is getting the right amount of moisture it needs while cleansing your skin. The unique 'stringy' texture of the cleanser quickly lathers into a rich foam to draw out impurities and pamper your skin with its serum-rich formula. It helps with improving the absorption of your skincare products too.
Available at Lazada.
3/12 Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum
One of the pioneers of the first-step serum, Sulwhasoo’s signature First Care Activating Serum has been reformulated for the fifth generation with the Jaum Activator. Inspired by Eastern medicinal theory, the new complex features five key ingredients—Peony, Rehmannia, Lotus, Solomon’s Seal, and White Lily—blended together according to their golden ratio. With the addition of Jaum Activator, the First Care Activating Serum promises a 10 per cent increase in anti-oxidation compared to the previous formula and nurtures the skin’s microbiome ecosystem to promote skin tissue regeneration and strengthen its protective barrier from within. The result is healthy skin that is soft, hydrated, supple and radiant.
