Lightly Buttered, Please
A cult favourite, L’Occitane’s Shea Butter body-care range has been updated with new must-try items. The Ultra Light Body has an airy, mousse-like texture that melts into skin, providing moisture sans sticky residue. For those who aren’t diligent about their beauty routine, the Shea Fabulous Shower Oil ($34) is an easy, effective solution, infused with nourishing, lipid-rich shea oil that forms a protective layer over post-shower skin.

Punchy yet sophisticated, Dior and Three’s new Spring collections put a cool, grown-up touch to girlie pinks.
And they just keep coming up with more imperceptible bases to help ace the no-makeup makeup trend. Cue Chanel’s upgraded CC Cream (in six shades, $90 each) with new ingredients like hyaluronic acid and murunga plum extract. The latter is said to have the highest concentration of vitamin C among fruits, as well as vitamins A, E and polyphenols, making it one strong antioxidant, and brightening and smoothing whizz. What this means for users: a more fluid and hydrating version of the original that blends in like second skin. (PS It works great as a primer and for touch-ups too.)
