These 6 New Trends Are Your Next Beauty Update | Clozette


Net-A-Porter Beauty has established itself as a luxe beauty destination for the discerning woman. Their curations are an eclectic mix of cult favourites, classics, and up-and-coming brands in the industry. Every year, we look forward to learning about the new names and products to take note of when it comes to updating our skincare arsenal. This year is no exception and we were met with plenty of promising labels offering solutions to our concerns. Here, we’ve rounded up the Net-A-Porter Beauty trends this season and the brands to know now.


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #1: Female-Driven Beauty


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trends

Mimi Luzon 24K Pure Gold Treatment, SGD291.48/~USD212; Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste, SGD39.92/~USD29; KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask, SGD43.72/~USD32 for a pack of 10


We support a strong, independent woman, and here are three who are carving a name for themselves in the beauty industry. Mimi Luzon is the go-to aesthetician for some of the modelling world’s familiar faces such as Jessica Hart, Elsa Hosk, and Irina Shayk. Her 24K Pure Gold Treatment mask is the secret to the models’ glow and who wouldn’t want to look like them?


Meanwhile, Lixirskin was founded by French doctor Colette Haydon, who has 20 years of experience in the industry. Her Vitamin C Paste is a hit in Asia, packing the powerful L-Ascorbic Acid into a formula more potent than most vitamin C-derived products in the market.


Finally, KNC Beauty is the brainchild of Kirsten Noel Crawley. Smitten by lip masks on a Tokyo trip, she decided to create a “cleaner” option using natural collagen. Her All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask is an Instagram hit.


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #2: Power Masking

Aside from the usual potent serums and active-rich creams, masks are gaining mass appeal for their quick treatment approach. This Net-A-Porter Beauty trend isn’t just limited to the face, as more masks have been created to suit different body areas. Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Deep Hydrating Face Mask promotes cell renewal through its active ingredient, Purslane. Meanwhile, Sarah Chapman’s Chin and Jaw Masks firm the skin for that defined and sculpted jawline. Finally, Wander Beauty’s Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks are a luxe option for soothing and brightening tired under-eyes.

Health, happiness, and glow are the keywords of this season’s Net-A-Porter Beauty trends. There’s a growing focus among women on looking healthier as opposed to simply looking younger. Crystal-based products like Angela Caglia’s La Vie En Rose Face Roller are a hit for their healing properties. Naturopath expert Dr. Nigma’s Hydrating and Plumping Serum No. 1, meanwhile, is praised for its elasticity-improving qualities using plant stem cells and marine peptides. Finally, WelleCo’s The Super Elixir with Caddy is supermodel Elle Macpherson’s secret to vibrant skin and peak energy levels, calling it “an investment but cheaper than a good face cream." We’re sold.



Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #4: Clean, Considered Beauty

Riding the wave of ethical conscientiousness, consumers are now demanding cleaner options for their skincare and Net-A-Porter Beauty is happy to deliver.

Their Ultra Marine Cellulite Night Cream makes use of sustainably sourced marine ingredients to combat cellulite.

Sometimes the best things in life are hiding in plain sight and one of France’s best-kept secrets is the pharmacie. We’ve seen countless iterations of the glamorous French woman in film and literature and one thing common among them is the certain je ne sais quoi that just exudes chic effortlessness. Being unbothered is part of their charm and that attitude also extends to beauty. Case in point: many of their essentials are French drugstore beauty buys.


Unlike the usual drugstore, however, French pharmacies feature a broad range of products at different price points but all offer high-quality results. For all their casualness, the French do actually take their skin and body care seriously. Thankfully, you don’t have to go all the way to Paris to partake in the French experience as many of these products are available internationally. Deciding on which ones to try can be quite overwhelming the first time so here’s our little guide to French drugstore beauty items to check out on your next shopping trip.


Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution

We all want to look, feel and smell fresh. But in our tropical climate, it can sometimes be a feat. With heat and humidity cramping our style — and literally making us sweat — staying cool and fresh, especially under the arms, can be quite the challenge. So a deodorant that can ensure we’re smelling our best and more is what we need to look for. Here are five criteria we make sure to seek when it comes to deodorant.

Effectively deodorises


Some deodorants only mask the odour with fragrance. We need something that actually removes or neutralises the odour. The QB Medicated Deodorant nips odour in the bud with the help of two active ingredients — O-Cymen-5Ol and Zinc Acid — that sterilise bacteria and reduces the sweat the underarms produce by tightening the sweat glands respectively.




With the help of eight natural plant extracts — rosa multiflora fruit extract, witch hazel leaf extract, hop extract, lavender flower extract, great burnet root extract, tea plant extract, Satsuma Mandarin peel extract and Chinese skullcap root extract — it also moisturises the skin on the underarms.


Has clean ingredients


We’re always cautious about what we put on the skin on our face. We say do the same when you think of what deodorant to pick! The QB Medicated Deodorant doesn’t contain aluminum, fragrances, colourants and parabens — so you’re sure that it’s gentle for your skin.




Is non-sticky


Deodorant wearers know that texture is also important. Some take a while to dry; others leave a slimy feeling on the skin. Either can definitely bring discomfort, which is not something you’re looking for when you want to feel fresh. So make sure you opt for something that has a non-sticky texture.



Easy to apply


Many of us may have gotten used to re-applying deodorant when necessary. But let’s face it: not everyone has the time to do so, especially in our fast-paced lives. So a deodorant that doesn’t require re-application is definitely a plus in our book. With the QB Medicated Deodorant, you can apply it one time and the effect will last for seven days. Talk about time- and effort-saving!




Doesn’t stain


Have you ever had to say goodbye to a favourite shirt because it got stained by your deodorant? So make sure you choose a deodorant that meshes well with your body’s chemistry and doesn’t leave you with white (or any colour) stains.



The QB Medicated Deodorant is available in all SaSa Malaysia outlets.
