Style News: Laneige rolls out new Water Bank products


Laneige rolls out new Water Bank products

South Korean beauty label Laneige has reformulated its best-selling Water Bank line, which features five products.

The range is divided into two sub-categories to address different skin concerns.

For those with oily skin, the Water Bank Hydro Essence and Hydro Mist are lightweight products that are said to hydrate and refresh the skin.

For those with dry and combination skin, the Water Bank Moisture Essence and Moisture Mist have slightly creamier formulas to moisturise and repair the skin.

The line also includes the Quick Hydro Pen, a fuss-free moisturiser applicator that can be used on the go.

The reformulated line contains moisture-balancing minerals, including potassium, sodium and calcium, and reparative minerals, such as zinc and magnesium.

The label says these help to revitalise dry skin and restore moisture barriers for soft, smooth skin.

The new Water Bank products ($14 to $60) are available at Laneige boutiques and counters.

Organic products from Kew Organics

Home-grown organic skincare label Kew Organics has launched two new body care products - the Coconut Lavender Organic Sugar Body Scrub ($18.95 for 100g) and the Luxuriant Multi-purpose Dry Oil ($39.95 for 100ml).

Both are made with organic and natural ingredients that the label says are perfect for Singapore's tropical climate.

The 100 per cent natural sugar scrub helps to exfoliate the skin and nourishes it with ingredients including perilla seed oil, coconut oil and vitamin E.

The moisturising formula does not leave a sticky, greasy residue. The lightweight oil absorbs quickly into the skin and can be used to moisturise and strengthen both the skin and hair.

The new products are available exclusively at Kew Organics and Sugar K Organic Peel Bar outlets, as well as online at
