American beauty company Fresh has released a new creamy lip product to nourish and smoothen lips.

The Sugar cream lip treatment comes in three neutral colours - buff, pink and blush, to give lips a brush of colour and shimmer.

The product contains ingredients such as blackcurrant seed oil, jojoba seed oil and avocado oil, which the label says help provide moisture and nourishment to soften and smoothen the skin.

The Sugar cream lip treatment ($34) is available at Fresh boutiques at Raffles City and Ion Orchard and at all Sephora stores.

South Korean beauty label Sulwhasoo has unveiled a new formulation of its Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Ex.

Formulated with anti-ageing ingredients derived from the ginseng root and flowers, the label claims that this newest version is six times more concentrated than previous products and helps to strengthen and regenerate the skin.

The rich cream contains a compound from the ginseng root that the brand says helps to stimulate collagen and hyaluronic acid production in skin, combating dryness and loss of firmness.

Sulwhasoo has also created the Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Ex Light, a lighter version that retains the efficacy of the original formula.

The gel-like texture absorbs quickly into the skin and has a lighter, more refreshing scent compared with the full-bodied regular cream.

The Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Ex ($298, 60ml) and the Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Ex Light ($298, 60ml) are available at all Sulwhasoo counters and the Sulwhasoo boutique at Capitol Piazza.
