The Pixi Rose Glow Mist is great for hydrating and brightening the skin.

PHP995/~USD19 (

"I've hit the big 3-O mark. If there's one thing my friends who are enjoying this phase tell me it's to make sure I keep my skin's elasticity in check because, as you may know, that's gonna change soon. For that, I'm hoping to add the Pixi Rose Glow Mist to my daily arsenal. It has seven flower oils, essential fatty acids and antioxidants that will make sure my skin's not only supple and smooth but also keep it safe from free radicals."

The Vivid Cotton Ink Crushed Rose Collection is great for lovers of lippies

SGD15 each/~USD11

"As much as I consider myself a lipstick addict, nude shades are not really up my alley because they don’t flatter my already pale lips. So when I saw Innisfree extending their lip range with the new Vivid Cotton Ink Crushed Rose Collection, I was just ecstatic. Promising a my-lips-but-better style but in five gorgeous and vivid rosy hues, who says you have to settle for the typical nudes for your MLBBs with these picks in the playing field? Its Shine Essence Oil Complex, which brings out the tint colour while keeping the lips supple and nourished, is also perfect for chap-lipped gals like me so I definitely have all five shades as my prospects."

The SK-II GenOptics Spot Pen promises to ward off dark spots

"I've been dealing with dark spots ever since I hit puberty. Although it is manageable and probably not as bad as I think it is, I still long for that blemish-free skin that doesn't need any concealer to cover up acne scars. From booster serums to brightening toners, I've used a lot of formulations to hasten the fading of my dark spots. Some worked but I have yet to find a product that can instantly even out my skin tone. That's why the SK-II GenOptics Spot Pen seems promising to me. With its innovative design featuring a magnetic booster (which is said to help absorption) and its high concentration of WH Smart Cocktail and Pitera™, this may just be the skincare miracle that I've been searching for."

"As a hair and makeup enthusiast, may I confess my recent obsession with sparkles and glitters? I love the concept of glitter growing from your roots and GLITAF has it. If there's something that has sparked joy in my new year, it's got to be Glit."

The Skin Inc Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light is great for at-home facials

"Dull and uneven skin have been my major skin concerns for years, so when I found out about the Skin Inc Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light, I had to give it a shot. It’s not the newest thing on the block but the latest launch piqued my curiosity and I don’t think I could ever look back. It allows you to create a customised facial experience with five different kinds of light therapy. Beats spending hours at a facial when I can give my skin a quick fix over Dynasty on Netflix."

The Replica Lazy Sunday Morning by Martin Margiela is a floral scent that smells great for every day

SGD145/~USD107 (

"I hardly use perfumes because I don’t like smelling very artificial. I am very selective of the fragrances I purchase because I personally feel that most perfumes or EDT are quite overwhelming and I get sick of them very quickly. I think to smell good, you just have to be smelling fresh and pleasant. I will always opt for floral-scented fragrances and the Replica Lazy Sunday Morning by Martin Margiela is one that I want to get."
