Beauty - Skin Savers

Too many late nights, one too many glasses of red wine, your skin is beginning to match the texture of your latest Birkin Croc bag. So, its time girlfriends to give your skin that much needed boost. We shortlist a few do-it-yourself product fixes and professional treatments that will pamper and preen, depending on what your needs are.


Moisturise …

In matters of the skin, water means everything! And if you want something light-weight, easily absorbed and non greasy, Clinelle does the job. Its Moisture Glow (50 ml) is a botanically blended formulation with antioxidants and extracts of Liquorice, Horse Chestnut, Oat and Lavender, Betaglucan, Plankton extract, Vitamin C, E and B5, Centella Asiatica, Green Tea, Rice Bran and Carrot Seed Oil. Free of artificial fragrances, colouring, comedogenic ingredients, alcohol, lanolin and mineral oil, this product is easy on the skin and suitable for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive skin. Enjoy a pre-Christmas price of S$44, now available at all Watson’s stores. 

Whiten …

Snow White, have you had one too many weekends in Bali or spent too much time hanging out by the poolside with the kids? Your white rabbit has just appeared and he is called Bioxil. He comes with a promise for ‘brighter, lighter and a more even complexion in only 7 days’.

Bioxil’s 7 day claim is backed up by tests conducted on 68 Asian women over the span of one month. Try Advanced Clear White Essence, a triple action whitening product that brightens, hydrates and protects making the skin more smooth and luminous in appearance and the Advanced Clear White Masque developed to lighten freckles, age spots and even your skin tone. Take advantage of  Bioxil’s Christmas Promotional offer Whitening Set: Advance Clear White Essence, Advance Clear White Masque at S$160 (usually $250)
Lift …

If its gravity that is catching up with you, then try Bioxil’s Advanced Anti-Aging Lifting Essence, a high performance anti-aging essence that stimulates collagen production to effectively smooth wrinkles and fine lines. This nutrient packed essence nourishes and tones skin and instantly rejuvenates and energizes it and you can actually see a significant improvement in skin elasticity after 4 weeks application. Sold in a Christmas Lifting Set, get the Bioxil Wrinkle Lifting Eye Cream, Anti-Ageing Lifting Essence at S$160 (usually $260). 

All Bioxil products contain UVA and UVB filters to protect the skin. They also all employ a unique nano-lipsomal delivery system, which mean that the key ingredients of these products are formulated into particles that are 100,000 times smaller than the width of human hair and then are combined with effective emulsions for better bonding and deeper penetration into skin. More details at:
