NEW FACIAL MISTS
A facial mist is an easy way to keep your face looking and feeling dewy fresh without having to deal with the stickiness that some lotions might leave. It also helps give skin a moisture boost.
Three beauty brands have recently released new facial mists that are easy to use and come with a range of skincare benefits.
South Korean label Laneige's Water Science Mist ($28) comes in seven different formulas, each targeting different skin concerns. The Skin Relief Water, for example, contains cypress tree extract which helps soothe sensitive and dry skin, while the Clear C formula contains super berry extract which is high in antioxidants. The Water Science mists are available exclusively at Laneige's flagship store at Ion Orchard.
The Ibuki Quick Fix mist ($45), released earlier this month by Japanese brand Shiseido, is a light gel mist that gets rid of shine and helps to smoothen skin. The mist can also be used to set make-up and prevent it from creasing or wearing off.
Korean brand Etude House's Moistfull Collagen Facial Mist ($22.90 for 50ml, $29.90 for 120ml) contains super collagen water and baobab water which help skin feel refreshed and keep it hydrated.
Singapore beauty brand Skin Inc recently launched the Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light ($398), a handheld device that claims to treat skincare problems such as ageing, pigmentation and acne.
It uses coloured LED chromotherapy (where colours and light are used to stimulate healing) with low frequency stimulation to activate light receptors in skin cells to improve skin quality.
The travel-friendly device has three coloured light settings: red to renew and repair damaged skin, yellow to revive and brighten dull skin and blue to alleviate acne and soothe sensitive skin.
Users hold the device against the skin, moving it in circular and upward movements along the forehead, eye area, cheeks and jawline.
The Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light, which runs on two AA batteries, is available at all Sephora outlets, the Skin Inc concept store (B3-43 Ion Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, tel: 6222-7428), Skin Inc's website iloveskininc.com and cosmetics and skincare website Luxola (www.luxola.com).
