Do Your Beauty Choices Spark Joy?

In time for International Happiness Day


Now, more than ever, we realise that life’s too short to do things that don’t spark joy. That goes for every aspect of our lives — including our beauty choices. Will you make Marie Kondo proud with what’s on your stash? If you’re not quite sure, let these picks help you find joy in different ways.


Clozette Happiness Kit 2020



The joy of being refreshed

The power of a deep, recharging slumber often goes unnoticed. It truly is quite elusive, so getting to experience it is a treat. But what’s more joy-inducing than that? Waking up refreshed — not just internally — but also when you look at yourself in the mirror and see your skin supple and smooth. Achieve it with the help of cult-favourites belif The true cream - Aqua bomb that delivers a surge of hydration to the skin and belif Aqua bomb sleeping mask that works wonders (hydrates and nourishes) for your skin while you sleep.


belif is available at THEFACESHOP-Nature Collection stores and thefaceshop.com.sg.

Did you know that how your hair looks can affect how you feel about your day? Make sure your hair is a cause of joy and not anxiety with the help of the BEYOND Deep Moisture haircare range. Lather it with the silicone-free BEYOND Deep Moisture Shampoo that's patented with Water Capture for a thorough cleanse — sans dryness. Then, treat it with the BEYOND Deep Moisture Conditioner that nourishes and moisturises dry, brittle tresses.


BEYOND is available at THEFACESHOP-Nature Collection Stores and thefaceshop.com.sg.


The joy of something complete

There’s a sense of satisfaction in things that are complete — skincare routines included.
