We are halfway through 2021 and the beauty launches keep coming—and we wouldn't have it any other way. From makeup to skincare, here are our favourites this week in June

The start of this week brought upon some positive news as we heard from the authorities that Covid-19 restrictions may ease after June 13, which is supposed to mark the end of Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) in Singapore. However, more information on whether the country will exit this phase has yet to be announced.  

For those who have ventured into shopping malls in the past two weeks, you’d have noticed that they’ve become quieter although boutiques have remained open. Most people are choosing to #stayhome—which means they’re doing their shopping online too.

This month, beauty brands continue to launch new products and we can’t wait to add more colour to our faces and spritz on a new scent once we’re allowed to head out for a nice meal (or anything, really) with more people again.

Below are some of our favourite beauty products for this week in June so far. Shop away!

Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Glow Concentrate

Sitting in front of your laptop or computer screen for long hours is no good for the skin. On top of blue light exposure, it is likely that you may develop dull, dry and tired-looking skin. Try Chanel’s Hydra Beauty Camellia Glow Concentrate to hit “reset” on your skincare routine. Although it’s meant to act as an intensive treatment, the product is gentle on the skin. After you cleanse and prep the skin properly, use this as a gentle exfoliant that will also boost your skin’s hydration. The gel-like texture is easily absorbed into the skin, especially if it is prepped well. As this product contains AHAs, don’t forget your sunscreen.

Available at all Chanel beauty counters.

Diorshow Mono Couleur Couture Eyeshadow

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, has introduced a new collection of couture-inspired eye makeup products.

The new Diorshow Mono Couleur Couture Eyeshadow now features iconic Dior colours such as Rouge Trafalgar, Denim, Gris Dior and more. In all, there are 18 shades in five new finishes including satin, matte, velvet, glitter and metallic. 

The four it-shades stand out in this collection because their names are evocative of Dior history. For example, Rouge Trafalgar, a deep and radiant red with a velvet finish, recalls the red dresses that Christian Dior used to capture the crowd's attention and light up his runway shows. And Pearl Star, a pure and glittery white, is a nod to Christian Dior's lucky star, also the brightest emblem in the Dior galaxy now.

Available at all Dior Beauty boutiques and counters. Customers can also shop for Dior Beauty products by calling 6636 7232 or 6688 7561 to place their order. Home delivery is complimentary for minimum orders of $150 and above.

Diorshow Maximizer 3D Primer-Serum

This lash primer was first introduced to me by a good friend several years ago, and I haven’t looked back since. It is an exceptional product that really coats your lashes from root to tip and amplifies the lashes in terms of curl, volume and length. Now, the new Dior Maximizer 3D is infused with a floral ingredient to give lashes a stronger, suppler and more beautiful effect. There’s no better time to focus more on eye makeup than now when face masks are mandatory. You can also use this as a lash-enhancing deep conditioner. We love an excellent multi-tasker.

Available at all Dior Beauty boutiques and counters. Customers can also shop for Dior Beauty products by calling 6636 7232 or 6688 7561 to place their order. Home delivery is complimentary for minimum orders of $150 and above.

Nars Soft Matte Complete Foundation

Nars fans have reason to cheer this month. The beauty brand has released an all-new foundation that promises full, natural-looking coverage that’s comfortable enough to wear for long hours. The new Soft Matte Complete Foundation features a “breakthrough” formula according to the brand, as it is true colour oxidation-resistant. This means you don’t have to worry about any dreaded colour shifting. What I love most about this foundation is that it contains the new Hydramatte Balancing Complex that helps to protect skin from pollution and blue light damage. Available in 21 shades for all skin tones.

Available at Sephora.


Two Lips Wipeout

With an ongoing pandemic, hand sanitisers and antibacterial wipes have become essentials that never leave our bags. For days that you want to pack light, these pocket-sized wipes are so useful and will come in handy in any situation. How handy, you may ask? The Two Lips Wipeout boasts antibacterial and antioxidant benefits and is formulated at an optimal pH 5. This means it is a skincare wipe that can be used for the face, body and vulva—that’s right ladies, it is more than just an intimate wipe. It contains skin-loving ingredients such as Resveratrol, Arginine and Panthenol that protect against environmental stressors as it works to restore your skin’s barrier function. This is important for those with sensitive skin too, as washing our hands ever so often during this Covid-19 period has caused our skin barrier to be compromised. The Wipeout contains no alcohol, dyes, bleach, artificial fragrances and phenoxyethanol. Note to eco-warriors: it’s also made of biodegradable cotton.

Available at all Strip outlets and online.


Est.lab LumiWhite 10% PHA Resurfacing Glow Serum

Est.lab has a brand new serum that acts as a chemical exfoliator, the LumiWhite 10% PHA Resurfacing Glow Serum. It’s a standout product that’s worth a spot on your #shelfie because it contains only PHA (poly-hydroxy acid) and in a high concentration of 10 per cent. Without the addition of other AHAs or BHAs, this chemical exfoliator is so gentle even on the most sensitive of skin, making it suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, and those of expecting mothers. It works to smoothen texture, improve skin clarity and boost radiance without causing irritating or increased photo-sensitivity. This is also a daily-use serum so it is perfect for those who have been looking for a powerful product that’s suitable for everyday usage.

Available at all Estetica Beauty studios and online.


Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura

The new fragrance of Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura by Acqua di Parma is an exquisite scent beautifully encased in a limited-edition bottle. As its name suggests, the fragrance immediately transports you to a field of bergamots, and you’ll be immersed in the bright fullness of its notes. The mandarin and orange notes offer fruity accents, whilst the grapefruit highlights its sour notes. The green tones of the ferula reveal its mineral intonations and its floral traces of the geranium highlight its sweetness. It’s without a doubt a rich fragrance that’s still bright and vivacious enough to be used from day to night.

For the first time, the maison created a porcelain bottle. The intense blue artisanal product was made using reused water and natural mineral components. Finally, to stamp the uniqueness of the fragrance, it also features a small golden seal that portrays the Bergamot fruit and carries the engraved words “Limited Edition – La Spugnatura”.

Available all Escentials boutiques, Escentials' e-store, Sephora Ion, Sephora Takashimaya and Takashimaya Department Store.

Only Skin Post Hair Removal Ceramide Essence and Only Skin White UV


Many of us don’t pay enough attention when it comes to hair removal care. And that’s where Only Skin comes in. The homegrown brand has formulated a new product especially to soothe post hair removal skin, the Post Hair Removal Ceramide Essence is an elixir that works to relieve irritation and inflammation that results from IPL, laser or LED hair removal treatments. If your skin constantly feels irritated and sensitive after your hair removal sessions, you’ll find yourself reaching for this essence to calm the skin. Use it with the brand’s White UV, which is a lightweight cream that brightens and evens skin tone. It also contains glutathione antioxidants that can help with colour correction as well as hydrating properties that can minimise the appearance of fine lines, blemishes and enlarged pores. 

Available at Only Aesthetics’ outlets and online.


Ole Henriksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme

Wonderful news for skincare junkies: Ole Henriksen has finally arrived on our shores, thus giving us easy access to its products constantly raved about by beauty Youtubers. The Danish skincare brand is organised into four franchises that can be mixed and matched for each user’s own routine. For a start, I tried a moisturiser from The Truth Collection—which is the brand’s brightening range. It consists of skincare goodies rich in vitamin C, including the cult favourite Banana Bright Eye Creme as well as the C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme, which I tried and enjoyed. It’s light to the touch and I’ve included it in my daytime routine as its texture is thin enough for our climate yet it performs well. Next on my must-try list is The Transform Plus Collection, which aims to fight visible signs of ageing with innovative alternatives to traditional ingredients. And who wouldn’t want to maintain youthful skin, right?

Available at Sephora.

Gallinee Face Vinegar Toner

The number of new eco-friendly and cruelty-free beauty brands that have launched in the past couple of years has been encouraging. I’m always up for a nice surprise in the realm of beauty and Gallinee didn’t let me down. The brand’s founder Dr Marie Drago led the way in microbiome skincare by using patented probiotics, probiotics, and lactic acid complex based on microbiology research.

While I’ve heard of this up-and-coming French skincare brand, I haven’t tried anything by them until now. I have been using one of its hero products, the Face Vinegar Toner, and so far it has lived up to expectations. It contains hibiscus vinegar for exfoliation and soothing purposes as well as algae probiotics, which act against signs of stress on the skin. Using products that contain probiotics, probiotics and postbiotics ensure that beneficial bacteria remain intact and the skin is protected from free radicals and oxidative stress. 

Available at Sephora.


Eve Lom Cleanser

You can't talk about cleansing balms without the cult favourite cleanser by Eve Lom. In fact, it is considered one of the OG cleansing balms out there since it made its debut 29 years ago. The multi-tasking product contains a unique blend of four aromatic oils that help to cleanse, exfoliate and nourish the skin.

As someone who has managed to finish an entire tub of this rich goodness, I will say that it is perfect for anyone looking for a cleanser that doesn't contain irritants and will absolutely remove every trace of makeup. You can also use it with the specially woven Muslin cloth that comes with the cleanser, though I normally prefer to wash off everything using my hands. 

Available at Escentials, Sephora and Tangs.


Drunk Elephant Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Body Scrub

Your bod is not quite ready for the summer (even though it's summer all-year-round in Singapore) until its given a good scrub. To help you with that, Drunk Elephant has released its all-new Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Body Scrub as part of its body care line. 

It contains key ingredients such as coffee seed oil, sugar, almond milk blend and coffee seed extract which all combine to provide a good physical exfoliation. The product is gentle so don't worry about damaging your skin barrier as this body scrub works to gently dry spots and dead skin cells. Follow these steps when using: cleanse with a body cleanser, exfoliate with Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Scrub and follow up with a moisturiser.

Available at Sephora in June 2021.

Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop

We are still wearing masks on a daily basis so if you are feeling uneasy about wearing foundation under face coverings—Fenty Beauty's Eaze Drop may be your solution. The brand has launched its first light-to-medium coverage complexion product that leaves the skin with a flawless effect without looking cakey. I love applying this (literally, in drops) using just my fingers and carefully working it gently all over the face. Trust me, you will marvel at the result especially if you've been looking for a suitable foundation or skin tint to wear under your face mask. Just remember to set it with some translucent powder and it'll be transfer-proof.

As usual, Rihanna did not come to play with Eaze Drop being available in 25 flexible shades that cover all 50 shades of the brand's signature Pro Filt’r range. If you already know your shade in Fenty Beauty's existing Pro Filt’r Foundations, you should be able to find your perfect Eaze Drop match by following the guidance below:

Light (Pro Filt’r Shades 100-170): EazeDrop Shades 1-3
Light Medium (Pro Filt’r Shades 180-250): Eaze Drop Shades 4-8
Medium (Pro Filt’r Shades 255-340): EazeDrop Shades 9-13
Medium Depp (Pro Filt’r Shades 345-420): Eaze Drop Shades 14-19
Deep (Pro Filt’r Shades 430-498): EazeDrop Shades 20-25

Available at Sephora.


Guerlain Abeille Royale Eye R Repair Serum

Following the success of its Double R Renew & Repair Serum, Guerlain has now released its luxurious new Eye R Repair Serum, which is made with 94 per cent naturally derived ingredients.

However, to increase the effectiveness of this formula, a key feature that immediately makes this serum a must-try is the Gold Drop. Featuring a metallised golden pearl at its tip, Guerlain’s new and ingenious applicator delivers the precise dose of serum for a 360° tensing and reviving massage.

Having tried this myself, I must add that this applicator is such a game-changer for several reasons: there is no product wastage, it's a much more hygienic way of applying your eye cream and the cooling sensation from the applicator truly offers a lifting and opening effect on the eyes.

Available at Tangs, Metro and Sephora.


Su:m37° Water-full Bluemune Essence

We love an exceptionally hydrating essence—and this exceptional bottle by Su:m37° does the trick. The fermented skincare brand hailing from South Korea has expanded its signature Water-Full range with the Water-full Bluemune Essence, an immunity-building hydrating essence that protects the skin from various harmful environmental elements.

Bluemune, a patented marine microorganism discovered by the National Institute of Fisheries Science in South Korea, is the new hero ingredient in this product.

If you are like me and encounter dry and reddish skin from time to time (no thanks to the climate and prolonged wear of face masks), the Water-Full Bluemune Essence is the perfect
solution. It will help to quickly repair and hydrate the skin; plus, its unique formula promises to last throughout the day—especially useful if you do not have a lot of time to spend on skincare in the morning.

Available at all Su:m37° counters in-store or online on Shopee, Lazada, and Zalora.


Bioré Mur Micellar Water Sheets

Japanese beauty brand Bioré is a household name not just in its homeland but here in Singapore too. Famed for its skincare range, especially the makeup removal products, the brand has debuted its new Mur Micellar Water Cleansing Sheets.

What's special this time around is its unique Magnet Sheet Technology. The sheets are made from a special blend of non-woven fibres that act as a magnet to attract makeup impurities and dirt. With this new technology, the amount of repeated wiping is minimised as the sheets will cleanse the skin and prevent makeup residue from transferring back to your skin. 

Additionally, the sheets are now 20cm x 20cm in size—so just one sheet is enough for the entire face. Once travel resumes, we know this pack of sheets will definitely be an essential product in our beauty kit.


John Frieda Hydrate and Recharge Range

Even as you are working from home, that doesn't mean you should stop paying attention to your tresses. Haircare brand John Frieda’s new Hydrate and Recharge range includes three products that can help nourish and add body to your hair.

The shampoo, conditioner, and hair masque are each enriched with nutrient-rich drops containing monoi oil and keratin to nourish and smoothen hair strands, for a full and glossy look. Native to French Polynesia, monoi oil is made by soaking petals of the Tiaré flower (Tahitian gardenia) in pure coconut oil. The oil has been used for centuries for its delicate fragrance and moisturising properties. For this new range, the ingredient works to penetrate the hair shaft to restore moisture and nutrients while strengthening and giving the hair a natural bounce. 

Most of us are guilty of forgetting to use heat protectant products before using our hair styling tools, so this range is an easy way to help restore lifeless hair.
