Every day, our skin is affected by aggressors such as pollution and fatigue which causes our skin to be dull and dehydrated. Just like how our body needs vitamins to be healthy, our skin needs to have minerals to strengthen itself and fight against skin stressors. For many years now, my skin has been plagued with hydration issues and I’m all for discovering new skincare products to help my skin stay moisturised and healthy.
Empowered by in-depth expertise on the impacts of external aggressors on our human skin, Vichy Laboratories creates the first daily care to reinforce the skin’s crucial barrier and promote its optimal health – Vichy Minéral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster.
They say that a pair of hands can reveal a woman’s age, yet most women these days are too lazy to even pay attention to them. It’s never too late, so start using hand creams to nourish and pamper your hands so that your hands still look like how they were when you were in your teens.
Speaking about hand care, there’s no brand more suitable than Crabtree & Evelyn® (C&E). With its carefully selected blend of ingredients, C&E’s hand creams are by far one of the best in the market. Starting September 2016, the brand launches some NEW Limited Edition Ultra-moisturising Hand Therapy inspired by the English gardens.
Capturing the enchantment of the English gardens, these hand creams bring you not just a host of finest plant extracts, botanical oils and emollients to target dry, chapped hands, but also some delightful fragrances to make your hands smell fresh and sweet.

It leaves your skin feeling silkily primed and prepped for makeup!
I’m sure we’re no strangers to having flowers in our skincare products. The common ones include roses for moisturisation, chamomile for soothing properties and calendula for anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory uses. What about having peonies incorporated in your skincare essentials? It’s a first for me hearing that L’Occitane actually created an innovative line of perfecting skincare products with peony extract. Behold, the majestic L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Range.
(Just look at the bunch of pink peonies! They look so bright and vibrant!)
Known to be the flower with a thousand petals, certain varieties of this remarkable peony boast medicinal and ornamental properties. Sharing the same passion for the legendary queen of flowers, L’Occitane collaborates with Jean-Luc Riviere, whose family specialised in peonies for 160 years. Riviere has cultivated over 700 species of the peony flower at the heart of his garden in Drôme, France, displaying his immense love for the flower.
For its 40th anniversary, L’Occitane is retracing the roots of its greatest products – the Almond. Renowned since ancient times for the softening and smoothing properties of its fruits, the almond tree is key to the Provençal landscape. In February, the trees adorn themselves with a delicately scented white veil as the orchards continue to sleep. The blooms herald the start of Spring, before making way for the beautiful soft green shells, the nut of which is bursting with useful cosmetic properties.
From harvesting to shelling, sorting and pressing of the fresh almonds at the plant oil mill, all the necessary ingredients for a profitable industry have come together. The quality and traceability charmed L’Occitane into creating a whole new skincare range – the Almond range.
