Insider Roundup: The Most Liked IG Photo & More | Clozette

We're two weeks into the new year, and we can say we've finally eased into it. The flow of news from the worlds of fashion and beauty definitely helped us get over the holiday rush. Now, we're back on track and ready for more. We're excited, as we're sure you would be, too, about these things we learned.

Most Liked Instagram Photo

Yes, you're looking at it. This photo of an egg is currently the holder of the title of "Most Liked Instagram Photo." It beat Kylie Jenner's photo, which has 18 million likes. Now, the next question is: how long is it going to be on top?

You stars are in Manila

Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell, two of the stars of the Netflix show You, are in Manila to talk about their controversial series. The two will do a series of press cons and interviews until tomorrow. With Shay having a penchant for travelling and exploring (not to mention having roots here), there's a big possibility you may find her (perhaps with Penn) going around the Metro. Keep an eye out on them... but definitely not as much as Joe did on Beck.

Monochrome Mood

Aside from celebrities, you should also keep an eye out on beauty trends. There's bound to be plenty this year. But we implore you to take a look at the monochromatic makeup trend first. If you've ever had trouble matching your lipstick to your eyeshadow or your blush to your lip gloss, here's an easy — but still impactful — way to go about it is the monochrome look. It's basically using the same hues from a certain colour family. If you're still unsure, MAC has made it easy for you with their collection of products that carry extensions of their cult-favourite lipsticks, such as Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy and Candy Yum-Yum.

Are wide belts making a comeback?

Bella Hadid is definitely making a case for it. She was recently spotted wearing a white studded belt that looked like it belonged in her mum's wardrobe. We're a bit into it. What say you?

Check out what you may have missed last week here.



We’re sure you are familiar with the Korean 10-step skincare routine. The elaborate steps promise the coveted glow that Korean superstars sport. But over time, many have come to realise that sometimes, less is more. You only need a few reliable and trusted products in your daily life to give you the same results. 

This rising trend has been referred to as “skip-care.” The idea is simple: you focus on the ingredients of the products and identify which ones your skin needs and those it doesn’t.

What if we tell you we have found the product that can simplify your skincare regimen?

The key is to find a product that can take the place of others. And that’s exactly what APSKIN, the world’s most advanced antioxidant cream, can do. Created by Sydney-based Dr. Vincent Candrawinata, the youngest PhD. holder in his field, APSKIN antioxidant cream is formulated with Activated Phenolics, an active ingredient extracted from Australian apples that helps make skin more radiant and youthful. The ingredient is the result of breakthrough technology more than 80 years in the making that harnesses the goodness of nature. APSKIN has high absorption levels, rich in nutrients, and it nourishes and targets skin regeneration at the cellular level.

Plus, it uses SMARTSENSE™ Technology that senses the skin’s hydration level, making sure APSKIN diffuses just the right amount of moisture needed by the skin up to 24 hours. It also ensures that Activated Phenolics are diffused immediately into the skin tissue, giving your skin instant radiance.

So how exactly can APSKIN simplify your skincare routine? Here are some of the things it can do.

For your skincare

After getting rid of impurities from the skin, we tend to use a toner, serum and moisturiser to balance the skin’s pH value, promote cell restoration and hydrate it. But with APSKIN, you’ll be able to do all that with just one product. APSKIN also promotes elastin and collagen production, giving you radiant and youthful skin after three days.

It even targets fine lines and other signs of skin ageing, removing the need for eye creams or other products that promise targeted solutions. APSKIN also helps to get rid of skin redness, acne scars, and tackles problems caused by sun damage such as sunspots, dryness and dullness.

APSKIN antioxidant cream is safe for all types of skin — even sensitive and acne-prone ones— so just about anyone who wants a more radiant complexion can use it. In fact, it’s so gentle that you can even use it around your lips or under your eyes as an eye cream.

For your makeup

APSKIN hydrates the skin that any makeup you put on top of it glides on smoothly and stays on for hours. It’s not sticky or oily and doesn’t build up or crack, making it the perfect foundation primer. And because of the benefits it gives the skin, in time, this will also help you go foundation-free.

For your body care

Don’t forget your body! APSKIN can also be used as an all-over body moisturiser. Its hydrating active ingredient ensures that you have radiant, healthy skin. It’s especially great for skin areas that tend to be drier, such as elbows and knees. It also works really well for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
