For the first release, Jones partnered with Filipino designer Ken Samudio, who is known for his eye-catching accessories.


Huda Beauty Body?



Huda Kattan has teased a new product from her eponymous beauty line. In the photo, she's seen submerged in gold liquid. Foreseeing people guessing the upcoming product as a highlighter, Kattan posted a disclaimer in the caption. Could it be body glitter or a new eyeshadow palette? What's your guess?

We move to different seasons in our lives, and within each stage comes different needs. The same can be said for how we take care of ourselves. There are just some things that, in time, just change. Our skin and its needs are the perfect examples of that.



Azleena, Jessie and Kersie


It’s always important to stick to a regimen that suits the phase and pace of your life and to use products that will complement your routine. Yehwadam has an array of skincare lines that fit a woman’s skin needs at every stage — Revitalizing, Heaven-Grade Ginseng Regenerating, Hwansaenggo, Pure Brightening and Revitalizing Moisturizing.


So, we asked three women in different stages of their lives — Azleena in her 20s, Jessie in her 30s, and Kersie in her 40s — to share their thoughts on the lines they used according to their needs.


Azleena, in her 20s



"I have combination skin that’s a bit dull with uneven tones. As someone who is in her 20s and is just starting to delve into anti-ageing, I tried the Yehwadam Revitalizing line which promises to deliver a healthy, lit-from-within glow with its formulation of Korean herbs (Safflower for improved skin tone and blood circulation, Ginseng for restored skin, and Goji berries for its antioxidant benefits).


The Revitalizing Toner goes on watery and refreshes my skin without leaving a taut, sticky feeling. Meanwhile, the Revitalizing Serum, though quite thick with high viscosity, applies very smoothly and absorbs well into my skin. It gave my skin some much-needed moisture and suppleness — as if I had a mask on for 30 minutes. Both the toner and serum have a subtle ginseng scent, which I found delightful since I’m not a fan of overpowering fragrances in my skincare.




The Revitalizing Cream is quite thick and heavy in texture but surprisingly gets absorbed easily. Whenever I used it at night, I find myself waking up the next day with plumped up skin replenished with moisture. The cream comes with a spatula that's not only hygienic but also helps in making sure the right amount of product is used.


The Revitalizing line comes in a light peach gradient packaging that's pretty light but does not feel "cheap". Its slightly translucent packaging comes as a bonus to help me gauge how much product I have left. I love how the range has made my skin feel softer and smoother, and I can’t wait to see what it’ll do with time."




Jessie, in her 30s



"As a skincare fanatic with hormonal imbalance, I am rather particular about my choice of products. Using the Yehwadam Heaven-Grade Ginseng Regenerating line — which contains plant-based ingredients procured from Yaksando Island and targets to regenerate the skin — was my first time trying ginseng as a key skincare ingredient. I was intrigued to see how it would invigorate my dehydrated skin and nourish it to bouncy health.




The classy bottle design first caught my eye, while the invigorating light ginseng fragrance perked up my mood. Product application was a breeze; the pump allowed me to control the amount needed and each one of them glided on relatively easy on my parched skin. My favourite is the Heaven-Grade Ginseng Regenerating Toner, which absorbed really quickly, preparing my skin for the rest of the products. Its lightweight texture allows makeup to sit nicely and not cake up, which is a huge plus point for me.


The Heaven-Grade Ginseng Regenerating Serum and Emulsion, one after the other, work to restore my skin and help me kick-start the day on a refreshing note, especially with my constant late nights contributing to my skin dullness. Experiencing (and smelling) the invigorating benefits of ginseng also reminds me to take better care of my diet and lifestyle in my quest to reverse the signs of ageing as much as possible!"




Kersie, in her 40s



"I recently underwent a skin peeling treatment so my skin is quite sensitive and I’m a little nervous about trying new products. My focus during this post-peel period is to work on my skin’s moisture level and maintain my newly brightened and clearer skin, as well as to keep my mature skin firm and lifted. Here's how the Yehwadam Hwansaenggo line, which is formulated with the ‘Cheon-hye-myeong-ui-dan Complex’ that aims to restore the balance and vitality of the skin, fared.


I have to admit that I don’t usually go for Ginseng-infused products. However, I must say that the Ginseng undertone of the products' fragrance has been done elegantly and I am impressed! The purple and gold packaging, as well as the heavy and solid bottles, also give the line a premium look. Packed with equally premium ingredients — Wild Ginseng for optimal hydration, Phellinus for antioxidant action, and Ling Zhi for stronger skin elasticity — I was ever so ready to indulge my skin with some major anti-ageing benefits.




Upon application, the products are easy and gentle on the skin. The Hwansaenggo Emulsion is unlike others I've tried before. It's akin to a luxurious lotion with a cloudy champagne colour and a smooth, buttery texture that's neither too watery nor sticky. Like the Hwansaenggo Toner and Hwansaenggo Cream, it melts effortlessly into skin and helped prepare my face for other products. Despite the dryness that came with my skin peeling treatment, the Hwansaenggo line still managed to drench my skin with moisture and work to maintain a youthful and healthy-looking complexion.”

We all have specific skincare routines, but sometimes we need to tweak them according to the season. When it's hot, you need to keep your skin's moisture levels just right. That said, you need to have a specific routine especially for the humid weather. If you don't know where to start, take inspiration from what the Community has been using recently.
