Beauty In A Jiffy: Try These Skincare Sticks

Pretty and portable

Say goodbye to the hassle of packing your beauty products. Meet the jet-setter beauty junkie's dream — skincare items in stick form. If you're looking for a solid (pun intended) skincare routine, then here are the products that you should know about. 

Eye Makeup Remover: Clinique Take the Day Off™ Stick

Mistakes are sometimes unavoidable when applying makeup. Rather than haphazardly smudging that mascara mark on your lid, why not try Clinique's stick makeup remover? Its greaseless formula works like a makeup eraser to dissolve those makeup mistakes.

Lip Makeup Remover: Urban Decay Meltdown Lip Oil Stick

Liquid lipsticks are long-lasting and highly pigmented but can be a pain to take off. That's why Urban Decay added the lip oil makeup remover stick so you can easily wipe off your lippie at the end of the day.

Cleanser: NEOGEN Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick

Just when we thought we've already tried all types of cleansers, this green tea cleansing stick from NEOGEN shows up. It's co-created by Charlotte Cho, who is a skincare guru and the co-founder of Soko Glam. The cleansing stick formula consists of natural oils and real green tea leaves for gentle exfoliation. It claims to break down makeup while leaving your skin soft and smooth. Oh, by the way, this baby just won the 2017 Teen Vogue Acne Awards. 

Toner: Milk Makeup Matcha Toner

Toners are essential for a good skincare routine so it's quite annoying when you can't apply toner during long flights because liquids are not allowed in the carry-on baggage. Milk Makeup recognised this problem and came up with the world's first solid facial toner that's absolutely airport security-friendly. This gel stick still has the same potency of a liquid toner and is infused with pore-refining ingredients like kombucha and witch hazel.

Eye Stick: Tony Moly Panda's Dream So Cool

This one's a solid eye serum that can depuff, moisturise and cool the eye area. Perfect for refreshing your eyes during late nights! Plus, that panda packaging is so adorable. 

Moisturiser: Lush Full Of Grace

When we think of moisturisers, what comes to mind are creams, lotions, and gels. And that's because moisturising means putting enriching your skin with rich liquids, right? Well, Lush proved us wrong. They came up with this solid, soap-like moisturiser which you can melt and massage onto skin. It's made of luscious butters and soothing chamomile to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.

Acne Treatment: Oxy On-The-Go Acne Stick

Apparently, there's also an acne-busting stick that you can conveniently apply anytime. It contains 5% benzoyl peroxide that can help manage pimple redness and speed up the healing process.

Facial Moisture: Caolion Pore Glowing Stick

This is the solid equivalent of the facial mist. Whenever your skin feels dry or dehydrated, just tap this product onto skin for a quick moisture fix. Its active ingredients are sunflower seed oil, ceramide, and chamomile.

Sunscreen: Nature Republic Provence Calendula 

If you feel like sun creams are too heavy for you, this sun stick is a good option. After putting on your skincare and makeup, swipe this all over face and neck for sun protection.
