Luxurious anti-aging skincare is one of my favourite things in beauty, and was what spurred me to start blogging years ago. There are lots of brands out there that position themselves as the purveyors of the finest, and there are brands that just do extremely well across the grain. Estée Lauder often gets overlooked precisely because it seems so mainstream, but I was recently blown by how amazing and luxurious their top-of-the-line offerings can be. Inspired by the magic and power of nature’s dew, and harnessing the powers of exotic florals, Estée Lauder presents us with the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection.

Kanebo completely revamped its product line last year, including both makeup and skincare. The entire brand philosophy now revolves around the concept of Chrono Beauty, changing rhythm of the body and skin at different times of the day and year. By understanding how the skin condition has evolved, Kanebo believes we can reduce the signs of aging and mature gracefully by taking proper care accordingly. The skincare range is rather extensive, but today, I’d like to give you a peek at a few specialized items that were recently launched to address concerns of sagging and wrinkling.

It’s been an amazing year in many ways, and I hope you’ve enjoyed all the product reviews or introductions here on the blog. Reality is, it takes much more time to write a skincare/bodycare/haircare review than makeup. On the other hand, I think it is far easier to get through those products, and so I’ve taken to documenting my empties to better speak to my fondness of some of these stuff that never makes it to the blog. There are way too many to go into detail here, so please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below!

We are counting down to the final months of this year… isn’t it unbelievable? Work has been insane lately, because of course, all the transactions have to drop at the same time. It’s definitely been a very productive couple of months, and I’m excited to share this bumper crop of #empties.

It is always nice to receive gift boxes from Fresh, because the packaging is always done tastefully… and still having seen it before, I swooned a little when I unravelled the recent drop. I’m not your typical girlie-girl who squeals over everything rose, but I really enjoy it in my skincare. And when I saw actual rose petals floating languidly in the bottle, I fell in love right away with the new Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner!

Last year, Origins introduced a novel new range of products targeting matured skin that has lapsed into a sleeping state of senescence and is no longer functioning optimally. And now, to complement the Three Part Harmony range (first introduced here), Origins has added 2 new products – a luxurious Foaming Cream-to-Oil Cleanser and a new Soft Cream. I actually took both of them with me on my 2-week long trip to Germany last January in the midst of winter, and have also tested them again back home in tropical Singapore… and I’d love to share them with you today!
