Welcome to the last roundup for the month of April! We often muse about time and how swiftly it passes during roundups a lot, but don’t you agree? There are just so many things happening, sometimes it’s hard to keep up. It’s a good thing we’ve kept tabs on topics we know you’d be interested in.

So if you haven’t had time to read the news or go on social media to catch what’s trending, here are this week’s highlights.

Instagram Offline

If that didn’t shock you, here’s something that might. You’ll soon be able to use Instagram offline. The new Instagram update will allow you to use the app even if you have a slow connection or if you’re using free data. There’s a catch, though. Only Android users can make use of the update right now. But we’re sure Instagram will work something out for iOS users in the future, too.

Travelling is exciting, but at the same time, it can be really exhausting especially when you're trapped inside an airplane for over six hours. Let's face it: our skin tends to break out after being in plane cabins where there's usually a change in pressure and lack of moisture.

Flying out soon? Before you go, take these top carry-on beauty essentials that will keep your face hydrated and glowing all throughout your flight!

Makeup Wipes

First, you have to remove all that excess makeup and all that gunk on your face to allow your skin to breathe and to properly take in every skincare product that you'll put on. Look for a makeup remover that cleanses, tones and moisturises, if you can.

Eye Cream

If you have dry under-eyes or you just didn't get enough sleep last night because you're a late packer, eye creams will save you! Say bye bye to those irritating puffy eyes as a cooling eye cream like Tony Moly’s Panda Brightening Eye Base will treat those pesky dark circles and relieve it from dryness.


A must-have in everyone's carry-on bag! Moisturisers will keep your skin from getting dry and dull because of the draining flight, letting you maintain a youthful glow.

Sheet Mask

For extra hydration and nourishment, pack some sheet masks. The boost in moisture and skincare benefits will will prevent acne breakouts and blemishes often caused by stress and dryness.
