Style News: Yves Rocher giveaway



In celebration of National Day, French beauty brand Yves Rocher is giving away 2,000 tubes of its Hydra Vegetal Mask (75ml for $23, above) to The Straits Times readers. According to the label, the hydrating mask will leave the skin feeling supple and refreshed after 15 minutes.

The gel-textured mask contains Maple sap, an ingredient the label claims will help regenerate the skin's moisture-capture cells. The mask is also mineral oil-free, silicon-free and paraben-free.

To redeem a free tube of the Hydra Vegetal Mask, SMS your name and e-mail address to 9118-0960 between Aug 4 to Aug 10. An auto-notification SMS will be sent to you. Show the SMS at any of the four Yves Rocher outlets between Aug 4 to Aug 10 to redeem the mask, while stocks last. 

Yves Rocher is located at Ngee Ann City, Westgate, BHG Bugis Junction and Isetan Tampines.

Home-grown stationery brand Bynd Artisan and musician Gentle Bones have collaborated on a four-piece capsule collection consisting of a T-shirt, cap, leather drawstring bag and leather key and card wallet.

Each item features a grey motif designed by Gentle Bones, the performing name of 22-year-old Joel Tan (with Bynd Artisan founder Winnie Chan).

The motif comprises the letter "S" - the letter is assigned to the NRIC numbers of Singaporeans and permanent residents born before the year 2000 - followed by a blank rectangular block, which is meant to represent the NRIC numbers.

Prices range from $40 for the cap to $200 for the drawstring bag. The capsule collection launches on Saturday at the Bynd Artisan Atelier in Holland Village.

The atelier is at 44 Jalan Merah Saga, 01-54; opening hours: noon to 9pm (Monday to Friday), 10am to 9pm (weekend and public holiday); tel: 6475-1680.

For this collection, expect items such as tiger-print jersey rollneck tops, leggings and jeans, as well as an oversized black leather jacket with pink faux shearling lining and a parka with a removable printed collar.

Accessories include padded flip-flops, printed scarves and cross-body bags, among others.

Prices range from $17.90 for a pair of tabi socks to $599 for a men's down jacket to $699 for a women's tiered dress.

The collection will be available at H&M Orchard Flagship building and Ion Orchard, and online, from Nov 3.
