TO KNOW

Mil­len­ni­als de­mand skincare that works harder – it has to be sim­ple to use, and have nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, an ad­vanced for­mula and ex­cep­tional tex­ture. The pack­ag­ing should be thought­ful and ap­peal­ing. That's not wish­ful think­ing, as these two new ranges p

The lat­est beauty news and trends: a South Korean skincare brand spe­cial­is­ing in fer­mented in­gre­di­ents; Sin­ga­pore’s rst or­ganic peel bar, and more.

Three’s the magic num­ber

Three words sum up why you’ll love the re­for­mu­lated and repack­aged Dior Hy­dra Life skincare range: colour­ful, lux­u­ri­ous, ecofriendly. First, the min­i­mal­ist jars in cheer­ful colours ap­peal to peo­ple of all ages. Next, the gen­tle, paraben­free prod­ucts are lux­u­ri­ous in tex­ture and boast scents that el­e­vate the sen­so­rial ex­pe­ri­ence of your beauty rou­tine. Fi­nally, you’ll like how these items are en­vi­ron­men­tally re­spon­si­ble: the pack­ag­ing doesn’t in­clude any leaets, cor­ru­gated card­board or cel­lo­phane, and the print uses inks of pre­dom­i­nantly nat­u­ral ori­gin.

It’s a hy­drat­ing range of four cleansers, one serum, one mois­turiser and three face masks. And what stands out are the three masks (pic­tured from top right): Pink Clay Mask ($92), a mousse-like clay that doesn’t dry out skin but in­stead leaves it smooth and matte; Smooth Balm Mask ($92), a highly emol­lient gel that plumps skin with in­tense mois­ture (re­move it with a cot­ton pad, not water); and Fresh Jelly Mask ($92), a jel­ly­like gel with al­pha-hy­droxy acids and crushed apri­cot ker­nel mi­cro-grains to re­move dead cells on the sur­face and en­cour­age skin re­newal. These masks are to be used once a week, and are ef­fi­cient enough to show re­sults in just three min­utes. Shi­seido’s Waso line is made to pro­vide bal­ance to young-adult skin. In your 20s, your skin tends to be un­sta­ble, so the range aims to strengthen the skin bar­rier against stres­sors with its Pho­tore­sist Sys­tem, which com­prises botan­i­cal ex­tracts.

Free of al­co­hol, soap, min­eral oil and parabens, these prod­ucts ($30-$55) of­fer ba­sic yet tar­geted skincare with in­no­va­tive tex­tures – you’ll nd a cleanser that foams with­out water, a soft­ener that changes from a gel to lo­tion, an ex­fo­lia­tor that feels like soft tofu, two oil-free face moisturisers (one of them is tinted) for oily skin, an­other tinted mois­turiser, and a gel­cream for nor­mal to dry skin.

The bot­tles con­tain­ing the moisturisers also have a con­ve­nient han­dle that’s de­signed for the mil­len­nial with a fast-paced life, so she can grab and open the prod­ucts eas­ily and quickly.
