One of the worst things you can do to your skin isn’t by forgetting to cleanse, or moisturise, or not use a silk pillowcase while you sleep; it’s by neglecting to protect it with a good SPF lotion. In case you hadn’t heard, constant exposure to the sun’s deadly UV rays can cause skin cancer, dryness, dark spots, and premature wrinkles (yikes!).

So in our tropical weather, where the sun rarely hides behind the clouds, sunscreen is crucial. It will make sure your skin doesn’t get damaged, with others even having extra benefits such as hydrating and brightening up your complexions.

But if you’re worried that sunscreen might break you out or cause irritation, don’t be! Below are our favourite sunscreens that will protect your skin all day long, and are perfect for all skin types!


Bioré UV Bright Face Milk SPF 50+++

A sunscreen that can double up as a foundation primer? Yes, please! This sunscreen, or “face milk,” from Bioré mattifies, evens out, and protects your skin. And while it may give a strong white cast after initial application, don’t worry, it’ll adapt to your skin colour in a few minutes!

Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense

Soothe and calm your complexion while protecting it from harmful UV rays with Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense. This oil-free, fragrance-free, colourant-free, and non-comedogenic sunblock is formulated with vitamin E and a unique blend of soothing oils that will nourish your skin while you’re out and about!

VMV Hypoallergenics Face Cover

If you’re the type who’s allergic to practically every sunscreen out in the market, then give this one from VMV Hypoallergenics a go! It’s specially formulated for those with sensitive skin so you can be sure that you won’t break out or get a reaction while protecting your face; and it comes in SPF 30 to 70 so you can choose what level of protection you want!

Crème Simon Daily UV Protector SPF 50

You got to love hybrid products – this sunscreen from Crème Simon doubles up as a face primer too as its mattifying-yet-moisturising texture won’t leave you with a white cast, and its lightweight and oil-free formula will brighten up your skin for a fairer and more radiant look!

Nuxe Daily UV Protector SPF 30

Formulated with anti-pollution ingredients that prevents the appearance of wrinkles and spots, this non-sticky sunblock from Nuxe won’t leave a white cast on your skin, but will lighten up your dark spots over time for a clearer, brighter, and healthier complexion!

Who doesn’t love summer? It's the time of the year when we get to hang out by the beach with our family and friends, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. And we can't help but deny that the best and most memorable conversations we have during these getaways are done over sweet and cold cocktails.

But when drinks are out of reach and the season proves to be too busy for us to relive those moments, why not squeeze in products into your beauty routine that could fill in the experience?

From cosmopolitans to pina coladas, check out our beauty picks that’ll remind you of summer cocktails in a whole new way!


The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Shower Gel

If you just want to keep it simple and fresh, mojitos are the go-to cocktail and The Body Shop Virgin Mojito line does just that! Get that minty cooling sensation and smooth and effortless glide from their shower gel that’s enough to give you the nostalgia of a quiet drink by the beach.

The Body Shop Pina Colada Fresh Body Scrub

When we think of summer, pina colada is definitely the signature cocktail! Be reminded of the soft waves of the ocean, the sun kissing your skin, and the refreshing feeling of the coconut and pineapple awakening your senses as you lather on The Body Shop’s Pina Colada Body Scrub.

Diorskin Blush Harmony in Coral Sunset

This Diorskin blush definitely reminds us of watching the sun kissing the horizon with sand under our feet and a glass of tequila sunset cocktail between our fingers. What better way to complete your sun-kissed look than with this pretty product?

One of the most sensitive areas on our face is the eye area as the skin there is thinner than the rest. And one of the biggest mistakes we all do is that we constantly put friction on it by pulling and tugging, which is why it’s usually the first place we start to show signs of aging.

But with the release of La Mer’s new product, the Lifting Eye Serum, the signs of aging can now be reversed as the brand continues their commitment to deliver optimal benefits that will lift the look of your eye area for a visibly younger and fresher appearance.

Powered by red algae technology and combined with other sea-based ingredients, this potent serum will visibly support the architecture of the eye and brow, while repairing, strengthening, and lifting the eye area.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a La Mer product without their famous Miracle Broth™, which according to Loretta Miraglia, Corporate Senior Vice President, Global Brand Product Development and Innovation, works together with the Stretch Matrix and The Uplifting Ferment to complete the heart of the serum. 

The Stretch Matrix is a network of naturally-derived ingredients that self-assembles an interlaced elastic net to help give the eye area a more lifted and contoured appearance. While The Uplifting Ferment helps to strengthen the barrier and smooth out the eye's delicate skin, and stimulates the natural production of elastin to give your skin more bounce and youthfulness.

So to get the most out of this miracle serum, all you have to do is layer it underneath your existing eye treatments. Its silky, lightweight texture will instantly penetrate your skin to provide a comfortable tightening effect and give you a natural eye lift!

The La Mer Lifting Eye Serum retails for SGD $350 at all La Mer counters and boutiques in Singapore.
