Laneige has made a good product better. The South Korean beauty brand launched the Water Sleeping Mask Ex ($45 for 70ml) - a reformulation of its Water Sleeping Mask, its global bestseller for the past 16 years.

The enhanced formula includes sugar cane-derived squalane to seal in moisture and protect the skin barrier, and a probiotics complex containing Apsulloc - a green tea probiotics from Jeju's tea fields which supposedly strengthens the skin defense and brightens tired skin.

In line with the rising skincare trend of maintaining the skin's microbiome, the product also includes Sleeping Microbiome, a patented technology that works to rebuild the skin's biome balance after damage by external aggressors such as dust and UV rays.

It has almost become tradition to await a limited-edition design of SK-II's Pitera Facial Treatment Essence every Chinese New Year.

This year's offering, while simple in design, is particularly meaningful in the age of Covid-19 - featuring 'XOXO' motifs in gold brush strokes against a red bottle, inspired by hugs, kisses and long-awaited happy reunions.

If social distancing and closed borders are keeping you apart, send your loved one virtual hugs and kisses via this bottle instead.

INFO: Priced at $289 and available at all SK-II counters
