BEAUTY SPRAY

Elizabeth Arden has extended its iconic Eight Hour Cream line.

The new All-Over Miracle Oil ($53, below, available at Elizabeth Arden counters next month) comes in a fuss-free lightweight spray formula.

Like the Eight Hour Cream, the oil hydrates skin throughout the day. It contains a blend of grape- seed oil, ginger root extract, boswellia resin, Vitamin E, olive oil, avocado oil and sunflower seed oil. It can also be used to treat dry hair.


LUXURY SKIN SOOTHER

If you are heading somewhere cold, consider Lancome's new Absolue Revitalizing Care Silky Cream ($395, available at Lancome counters next month).

When the temperature dips, a moisturising cream with soothing properties is necessary to protect the skin and keep it supple.

Lancome's silky and hydrating cream is made with a proprietary rose freeze distillate that promises to repair and strengthen skin, as well as reduce inflammation.

For those with very dry skin, layer a skincare oil under the cream.


NEW BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE BOUTIQUE

The first Singapore boutique for the cult Bao Bao bags by Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake opened at Ion Orchard on Dec 22.

The bags, which are made of triangular plastic pieces bonded onto a mesh tote, come in a variety of colours and sizes.

The 441 sq ft store will stock the full range of women's bags and pouches and men's bags from the Sports Line series. To celebrate its opening, the Spring Summer 2016 At-Random Lucent tote ($660, above) and clutch ($460) will be sold exclusively at the store.

FIRM UP YOUR SKIN

Dior's latest Capture Totale La Creme MultiPerfection ($235, above, from Dior counters) is the latest anti- ageing and lifting cream to hit shelves.

It contains an extract of the logonza flower, which supposedly boosts the production of collagen and elastin and, in turn, skin firmness.

The laminaria brown algae is also added into the lightweight gel cream to give skin a firming effect.

Use with the Multi-Perfection Emulsion ($210) for best results.
