Beauty Unmasked: Face Mask Recommendations For Every Need | Clozette


Forget the diamonds ladies, we now have a new best friend that’s also small and handy but doesn't cost an arm and a leg — face masks!

These beauty sheets, whose popularity seemed like a gift from our Korean sisters, are instant lifesavers especially if you spent the evening having more drinks than you intended or binging on the “Somebody Feed Phil” series on Netflix (which basically got you so hungry you couldn’t sleep!). Face masks are especially useful to girls who are too lazy busy to properly wash, tone and moisturise.

These “instant facials” are an instant pick-me-up and could do wonders to skin that’s been exposed from harmful elements both chemical and natural. Not only that, but face masks also make it easier for one to use makeup, making them the perfect primer which delicious effects last for days. 

But with all the choices that we have in beauty bars, salons, health and beauty stores and favourite online shopping portals, one is bound to be confused as to what face mask we should truly choose. Well, we’re here to make things easier for you ladies. Ready for a home facial? Try out these beauty sheets.

End your week with a bang with the freshest news on the block. From Singapore Stories coming back for its second year to the Song-Song couple's divorce affecting South Korea's stocks, we sum up and spill all the deets in today's Insider Roundup. 


'Spotlight: Singapore Stories' Year 2



Spotlight: Singapore Stories, an initiative by the Textile and Fashion Federation (TaFF), is celebrating its second year this 30 July 2019 (Tuesday). With its aim to raise awareness and highlight works of Singaporean designers, it puts the focus on seven fashion creatives this 2019, bringing a much-anticipated capsule collection to the table. Here's a peek at what you can expect from this year's event. 


FRIENDS at 25



Cue in "Oh. My. God" in Janice's voice as TBS teased something brewing for FRIENDS fans this September. The beloved TV sitcom, which aired for a decade — from 1994 to 2004 — is celebrating its 25th anniversary a couple of months from now and by the looks of it, the Central Perk gang is in with the surprise. Are you excited?

The impact of the Song-Song divorce on stocks in South Korea



K-drama fans all over the world are still devastated about the Song-Song couple's divorce even after weeks of its initial announcement. But it seems like with the finality of the separation process, brands and agencies related to both halves of the Descendants of the Sun reel-to-real couple were also affected — both good and bad — with some after-effects.


It was reported that Studio Dragon, the agency in charge of Song Joong-ki's latest Netflix series, The Arthdal Chronicles, closed 1.29 percent lower the previous day when the divorce was announced. Blossom Media & Cosmetics, a subsidiary of Joong-ki's agency Blossom Entertainment, also suffered a 2.4 percent decline. On the upside, brands the former couple represent individually have been seeing an increase in their sales.


Jaclyn Hill returns to YouTube to talk more about her brand's lipstick controversy



A couple of months ago, fans of YouTuber and beauty influencer Jaclyn Hill expressed dismay and disgust over her latest lipstick line due to the presence of hair and other contaminants in almost every tube. Hill has then released an apology video disclosing the production details of her products, but many people still didn't buy her excuses.


Now, after a month of silence, she comes back to YouTube talking about her "failed launch." In summary, she committed to pouring more efforts in creating a new quality control team and system to avoid any more sanitary mishaps within her brand. 



Forever21 in hot water after sending diet bars to plus-sized customers



Fast-fashion brand Forever21 angered U.S. customers when orders for plus-sized pieces came in the mail with diet bars. The public immediately called out the action, saying that it's a step backwards from body positivity and might even trigger those with body dysmorphia and eating disorders.


In the brand's defence, they said that the inclusion of the product was promotional and was sent to online customers of all sizes as a free sample. Still, Forever21 apologised for the wrong message they might have sent to their consumers, pledging to rethink the repercussions of their actions as a fashion brand moving forward.
