Shiseido releases the new Vital Perfection series




Before the Love Month concludes, Asian beauty giant Shiseido releases a new skincare collection to provide your skin with some TLC. The brand-new Vital Perfection series boosts the self-regeneration power of ageing skin. It promises to bring visible lifting results in as quick as one week. It also features a citrusy-floral fragrance that is invigorating on its own.

The Friends reunion is officially happening




Fans of the television classic were overjoyed when the original cast jointly posted to tease the great news. The Friends reunion is happening in May of 2020 and will be available on HBO Max (launching in May as well). The reunion special takes the cast back to their studio at Stage 24 at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, CA. If you’re mourning the loss of the show from Netflix’s roster, you’d be happy to hear that the program will also be available alongside all 236 episodes of the show.


Drunk Elephant releases its first body and hair care products




The cult-fave skincare brand announced that it will be releasing a range of hair care products on the third of April. Taking their ethos of using clean ingredients, Drunk Elephant partnered up with celebrity stylist Chris McMillan — the creator of the iconic Rachel ‘do. It will feature a shampoo, conditioner, detangling spray, and scalp scrub. It’s guaranteed to be free of anything the brand deems potentially sensitizing or inflammatory to the skin such as essential oils, sulfates, fragrances, and silicones. McMillan even tested it out on his celebrity clients, yes — including Jennifer Aniston.
