Mamonde Vital Vitamin Essence


SGD45/~USD33


"This summer, I'm all about hitting the refresh button. From doing digital detoxes to revamping my skincare routine, I'm all about feeling fresh and zen. That's why I'm all about the Mamonde Vital Vitamin Essence and its refreshing texture and five essential vitamins (Bitter Orange Flower Extract, Vitamin B3, C, F and E) that will help firm up and brighten up my skin."

Price varies depending on Fitbit model


"One of the things that I would definitely want to get behind is following a fitness routine. I try to squeeze gym sessions whenever I don't feel mentally and physically fatigued but I just can't find the right motivation when contrasting it with... well... just sleeping. However, when I found out that Fitbit and Snap are launching their first-ever Bitmoji Clock Face Integration, I knew that it was the sign I needed. Aside from dynamically keeping track of my health and wellness progress, just having that extra touch of fun with a Bitmoji to celebrate my wins — and remind me when I feel like procrastinating — definitely adds to the appeal."

 Adidas Don’t Rest Primeknit LUX bra

Price unavailable



"These days, I'm feeling a little sluggish and I have a good feeling that it's because I don't exercise as much anymore. Well, I guess it's time to get up and move it! To help me get a good kickstart, I'm thinking of getting the Adidas Don’t Rest Primeknit LUX bra. It's made with revolutionary knitting technology that's engineered to create the perfect fit so I don't have to worry about adjusting my bra when I'm already in the zone. Talk about awesome clothing innovation."

"Because I have an active lifestyle, I was thrilled when G-SHOCK launched their latest Carbon series GA-2000 that has a tough yet lightweight shock-resistant carbon core guard structure and carbon fibre reinforced resin case. With its exceptional shock resistant structure, I no longer need to be extra wary of my movements while cross-training. What's more, it's an everyday watch which comes in handy with all its functions."

REVLON PHOTOREADY CANDID Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation

SGD23.71/~USD18



"In this digital age, we are constantly on our phones and our laptops. The blue light from these gadgets are actually harming our skin and this is something that I would like to prevent. The REVLON PHOTOREADY CANDID Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation has anti-pollution and anti-bluelight ingredients to protect my skin from technology."

Lancome Advanced Genifique Light Pearl concentrated eye and lash serum

SGD120/~USD89


"I've always been conscious of how fragile and sparse my lashes seem to be so when Lancome announced it's releasing the Advanced Genifique Light Pearl concentrated eye and lash serum, I couldn't help but take notice. It promises to smooth fine lines and depuff eye bags while at the same time strengthening and thickening lashes. It's basically having two essential eye products in one and it can't get any better than that."

GoPro HERO7 Black

SGD595/~USD440


"As much as possible, when we travel, we want to capture the best of each moment. Still, if you’re the type to do a lot of activities like me, it can be annoying (and literally back-breaking) having to lug around a DSLR camera around your neck to get those high-quality photos wherever you go. That’s why I’ve been eyeing the new limited edition GoPro HERO7 Black. It’s such a tiny device, yet with its SuperPhoto function, it helps me capture professional-looking shots. Also, isn’t it incredibly sophisticated in that Dusk White colour?"

Say it isn’t so! Just yesterday, handmade cosmetics brand Lush UK announced that they would be withdrawing from social media to better communicate with their customers. This announcement was made on their Instagram page following their last and latest post. Lush wrote, “We’re a community and we always have been. We believe we can make more noise using all of our voices across the globe because when we do we drive change, challenge norms and create a cosmetic revolution. We want social to be more about passions and less about likes.”



While it appears that Lush will be focusing on more community-driven efforts, a significant part of the brand’s appeal lies in their ethical and environmental advocacies — most of which gained mass appeal through social media. Lush added, “This isn’t the end, it’s just the start of something new.” So perhaps we can look forward to better, more ingenious ways that they can open up the conversation about topics they passionately care about in the future. For now, we take a look back at some of Lush’s most striking campaigns on Instagram, which will hopefully challenge us not to think twice, but better, about our choices.


Ocean Plastic Campaign



Remember when banning straws became a huge deal? Lush released a 29-second video on the need-to-know on the growing threat of plastic in oceans, ending with a call for a plastic-free economy and alternatives to plastic use.


Lush Naked Campaign



Packaging waste is a big problem in the cosmetics industry. With the launch of their first packaging-free “Naked Shop”, Lush cheekily asked their staff to strip down to the bare necessities in a campaign to use reusable containers.




Save the Orangutans Campaign



Palm oil is an ingredient widely used in cosmetics. Unfortunately for wild animals like the orangutans, rainforests bear the brunt of the damage when it comes to harvesting palm oil for plantations. With only around 14,600 orangutans left in the wild, Lush drew attention to conservation efforts to protect the forests and wildlife in Sumatra.


The Lush Film Festival



Animal rights, equal representation for women, and knife crime were some of the causes highlighted by Lush at their 2018 film festival in SoHo. Using the medium of film and storytelling, Lush managed to communicate their advocacies to a wider audience.




Lush Player



Furthering their activism causes, Lush launched the Lush Player back in 2018 to expand the conversation when it comes to global issues and developments. The Player features documentaries and exclusive content such as interviews with people of influence in the art, music, film, and writing industries.
