This week, my world is buzzing with hype about the new Crazy Rich Asians movie. And whilst the movie completely overplayed the wealth of the rich and famous in Singapore, the type it portrays certainly exists in Asia. In case you still have not noticed, the world’s wealth is now centered in Asia, which explains all the luxe new beauty launches targeted with Asians in mind. Now, most of us (me specifically) will not be able to jet around the world on a whim attending fashionable events on a private jet, but nothing will stop us when it comes to pampering and preserving the youth of our skin! With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to the new La Prairie White Caviar Creme Extraordinaire!

Hello August! I hope you’re all enjoying your summer so far! Summer seasons are usually marked by new sunscreen releases, and lighter skincare selections focusing more on hydration [start reading about my favourites here]. But after skimping on the skincare routine, and spending more hours under the sun, you may find yourself needing a bit of help resetting your skin. Or consider it a headstart into the cooler months ahead, it is never too late to start stocking up on some anti-aging, pampering skincare. And here are 5 facial creams that I’m currently loving, you may use them mainly at night for now, or even in the day depending on your skin’s needs. From whitening to firming, there is surely something to pique your interest!

I am finally concluding my coverage of skin hydrating products! Today’s post is a sort of psychological wrapper for me because it features the earliest product that I acquired before making up my mind to create a series, and the most recent acquisition which is technically not marketed for dry skin but works like a charm. This pairing works best for those of you who have acne-prone skin like me, but whose skin is also dehydrated and hence cannot accommodate overly stripping products. The balance is delicate, and Tatcha does it so elegantly with its The Deep Cleanse and Water Cream.

Happy hump-day! This supposed mini-series on hydrating skincare seems to be taking forever to complete… I started this series 2 weeks ago [here] with the intention of wrapping it up within a week, but work and life got in the way. There are just a couple more to go, and today I’d like to introduce a trio poetically named – Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Collection.

I was hoping to be able to wrap up my mini-series covering all the hydration heroes last week , but work and travels got in the way. Since taking on my current job (about 1.5 years ago), I’ve had to take on more travels, and even without mentioning how stressful air travel can be on the skin, varying bath water quality, irregular sleeping and eating patterns all take their toll. And as I am turning 40 next year, I have learnt to appreciate the importance of hydration even more. The range that I’ve fallen more and more in love with over the years, is Chanel’s Hydra Beauty. I had test driven it at the onset of this blog, and then as my skin got drier the Micro Serum became an integral part of my personal lineup. Now, the line has expanded and the formulation is better honed, so there is a Hydra Beauty specialist to fit into any regime and address your skincare needs.

It is Day 2 of our quest to jumpstart our skincare routine this Spring! Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s hydrating duo, and today I’ve got a power pair from Korean brand Su:m37˚. Pronounced as soom, Su:m37˚ means “breath” in Korean and is a premium line that uses naturally fermented ingredients in their skincare products. Everything is formulated with a proprietary essence called Cytosis®, which is derived from 80 types of natural plants that are gathered and fermented in cedar barrels for 365 days, under stringent conditions at a temperature of 37˚C. I have been hooked on their skincare ever since the brand was launched in Singapore last year, and even more so now with the new Su:m37˚ Water-full Radiant range.
