Events & Promos
Laneige Water Bank Double Gel Soothing Mask, $34
Plane rides – especially long ones – can suck the moisture and soul out of your skin. To tackle that, slip on these soothing and cooling sheet masks that will quench your thirsty skin, leaving it soft and supple. And if you’re on a beach getaway that makes you feel like a sunburn is coming on, this one should calm it down too. IGK Direct Flight Dry Shampoo, $20, Sephora
Another result of dry air on planes? Oily skin and scalps because our bodies tend to overcompensate by producing more oil. This turmeric and charcoal dry shampoo absorbs oil, refreshes the scalp and lends volume to once-grimy and flat hair. Eve Lom Cleansing Oil Capsules, $42
Formulated with essential omega fatty acids and the brand’s signature blend of botanical oils – eucalyptus, clove, Egyptian chamomile and hops – each capsule is enough for one time’s worth of cleansing. It dissolves traces of impurities and leaves the skin supple and moisturised. Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Primer & Setting Spray, $24, Sephora
In true multi-tasking fashion, this facial coconut water-infused mist that primes, sets and refreshes makeup while it helps keep skin hydrated. Use it as a primer before makeup, a setting spray to lock your face beat in place or a mid-day dose of hydration to revive, brighten and smoothen skin. A win-win-win situation if you ask us. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules, $200
We all know of Estee Lauder’s well-raved about ANR series. Think of this one as a portable facial treatment that boasts of the brand’s signature ChronoluxAI technology to help reduce irritation and support the skin’s defense system. Ideal for brightening, soothing and strengthening over-stressed skin, your complexion will appear calmer and more radiant after a night’s wear. Lily Lashes "I Won't Cry for You" Lash Storage Case, $30, Sephora
And if you must absolutely travel with your falsies, here’s a sleek, compact case that holds up to three pairs of lashes so that they won’t get crushed midway through your travels. Alternatively, book an lash extension session ahead of your travels. Kopari Coconut Melt Wipes, $34, Sephora
These two-in-one 100 per cent organic coconut oil-infused wipes for the face and body helps are great because they’re single-use and mess-free. Reach for them whenever your skin needs a little pick-me-up and refreshing. Fenty Beauty Portable Contour & Concealer Brush 150, $36, Sephora
Why we heart this brush? Its nifty size means it fits perfectly into even the smallest of makeup pouches. It stows neatly too, thanks to its retractable mechanism and cap that keeps the tapered brush safely away without messing with its shape or contaminating it. Supergoop Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C SPF 50, $22 (89ml), Sephora
It doesn’t mean that you don’t need SPF with you if you’re going for a winter vacation. Even though you’re probably going to be bundled up in layers of winter wear, earmuffs and whatnots, the skin that’s exposed still needs to be protected with SPF.   Enter this sunscreen mist from Supergoop that’s water-resistant (for up to 80 minutes underwater) and has 35 per cent less alcohol than other sprays, which means that it’s much more hydrating. To top it off, it features antioxidant vitamin C that prevents damage to the skin. Mamonde Rose Water Toner Pad, $25
This one saves you the hassle of packing a toner separately from cotton pads because the 40 pads in this tub are already pre-soaked with Mamonde’s Rose Water Toner. Extracted from 100 per cent organic Damask Rose, it’s said to remove dead skin cells for brighter skin. And it can also double up as a sheet mask to refresh skin. Byredo Suede Rinse-Free Hand Wash, $40, Escentials
Available in two scents, this alcohol-based formula gently cleanses the hands whilst delicately hydrating and refreshing them sans rinsing. This one smells like a fusion of breezy floral notes, pear, bergamot and fresh aldehydes upon application. Then, it settles into a blend soft musks, smooth velvet plum and sweet amber. Foreo Luna Mini 3, $235
This tiny cleansing device packs a punch when it comes to removing all the grime and dirt from your pores while being compact, lightweight and convenient to carry about. Bobbi Brown The Essential Multicolor Eye Shadow Palette in Into The Sunset, $68
A versatile, warm-toned eyeshadow palette that contains everyday shades that will match all your day-to-day looks. Basically what makes a good travel palette.
