Everyone and their mother knows about Origins’ famous collection of masks; whatever you need for your skin, they have it! 

As the number 1 face mask brand in the world, Origins has two sides to its personality. According to Samantha Lim, Sales And Training Coordinator for Origins, the first side is about nature as all their products are made from “100% natural and certified essential oils”. On the other hand, the brand is also about science – they try to find the best formulas for every skin type to give every one optimal results.

With that in mind, what better way to make a difference on your skin than to treat it to an Origins mask every week! You can even reap in more of its benefits by spraying their brand new Maskimizer™ Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer on your face to make your skin more receptive to the mask's ingredients. 

So now the big question is, how do you choose which one to use? If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of masks available in the brand, don’t worry! We created this quick quiz to help you figure out which Origins mask is the perfect one for you!

One of the worst things you can do to your skin isn’t by forgetting to cleanse, or moisturise, or not use a silk pillowcase while you sleep; it’s by neglecting to protect it with a good SPF lotion. In case you hadn’t heard, constant exposure to the sun’s deadly UV rays can cause skin cancer, dryness, dark spots, and premature wrinkles (yikes!).

So in our tropical weather, where the sun rarely hides behind the clouds, sunscreen is crucial. It will make sure your skin doesn’t get damaged, with others even having extra benefits such as hydrating and brightening up your complexions.

But if you’re worried that sunscreen might break you out or cause irritation, don’t be! Below are our favourite sunscreens that will protect your skin all day long, and are perfect for all skin types!


Bioré UV Bright Face Milk SPF 50+++

A sunscreen that can double up as a foundation primer? Yes, please! This sunscreen, or “face milk,” from Bioré mattifies, evens out, and protects your skin. And while it may give a strong white cast after initial application, don’t worry, it’ll adapt to your skin colour in a few minutes!

Soothe and calm your complexion while protecting it from harmful UV rays with Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense. This oil-free, fragrance-free, colourant-free, and non-comedogenic sunblock is formulated with vitamin E and a unique blend of soothing oils that will nourish your skin while you’re out and about!

VMV Hypoallergenics Face Cover

If you’re the type who’s allergic to practically every sunscreen out in the market, then give this one from VMV Hypoallergenics a go! It’s specially formulated for those with sensitive skin so you can be sure that you won’t break out or get a reaction while protecting your face; and it comes in SPF 30 to 70 so you can choose what level of protection you want!

Crème Simon Daily UV Protector SPF 50

You got to love hybrid products – this sunscreen from Crème Simon doubles up as a face primer too as its mattifying-yet-moisturising texture won’t leave you with a white cast, and its lightweight and oil-free formula will brighten up your skin for a fairer and more radiant look!
