The Best Moisturisers For Travelling | Clozette
Apart from our way to give back to your love and support, another reason why we love holding giveaways is that we get to learn more about a lot of things. Our Community is made up of beauty and fashion enthusiasts who have so many tips and tricks up their sleeves. And in a recent giveaway, we were happy to learn about some of your recommendations for the best moisturisers to take while travelling.

Being away from our usual routine can wreak havoc on our skins. But these products promise to keep the problems at bay, according to some of our Community members. If you’re going on a trip soon, make sure to include these products on your to-buy list.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask



This cult-favourite — and Clozette Beauty Awards winner for the third time in a row! — is @litingpls’s secret weapon against skin troubles when she’s on a trip. She says, “It definitely helps maintain my skin moisture especially when I’m on the plane.”

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm



Let’s admit it, we sometimes overlook taking care of our lips. But this lip balm from Nuxe should be a go-to for anyone who’s going on a trip, according to @fevijean, because “dry lips are the worst” and this makes sure that you don’t get hassled by chapped puckers.

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Cream



If you’re leaving for somewhere cold soon, make sure you pack any of Crabtree & Evelyn’s hand creams, says @jellyfied. They’re great at keeping her hands from feeling when the weather’s super cold, she adds.

Methode Swiss Thermal Oxygen Overnight Moisture Mask



For @derbylicious8, this mask is great for keeping her visage moisturised. She says she leaves it on overnight and washes it off in the morning to combat jet lag and get soft, moisturised skin.

With each fresh new year, we get an urge to have a 'do-over'. We all hope to have a better year than the last by calibrating some habits and reinventing ourselves. And with that mission, we need some additions to our arsenal to aid us in achieving our personal goals. Here are some trinkets that make a great gift to anyone (so basically, everyone including yourself) who wants to have a do-over this 2018. 


For Organizing Tasks: Planner

Planners don't have to be rigid, sometimes they can just be a guideline to visualize a plan and put it into action. It can also double as a scrapbook, where your friend can paste or staple mementoes along the way. 


To Keep Track Of Time: Wristwatch


Daniel Wellington Classic Petite 28MM in Melrose, SGD219


It's common knowledge that if you want to get things done, you have to budget your time. As opposed to just relying on a phone's clock, wristwatches help us to be more aware of the hours passing by because it's a convenient visual cue. So encourage your friend to wear a wristwatch by gifting one. 


For A Great Game Face: Makeup Set

Welcome the new year with a game face on! Get your friend to add a little oomph to her makeup looks by adding some highlights, mascara and a bit of sculpting bronzer. 


For Better Skin: New Skincare Product


Astalift Drink Pure Collagen 10000, SGD11.90 for a box of 3 bottles


Introduce your friend to a new skincare product that will surely be a beauty boost. Aside from serums and sleeping masks, collagen drinks are also raved by beauty gurus these days. As with any new skincare product, we suggest you do a trial run first before buying it in bigger quantities.




For A Style Upgrade: Classic Fashion Item


Zara Leather Jacket, SGD89.90


One piece of clothing can either make or break an ensemble. And the foolproof way to give a gift that will be appreciated by anyone who wants to upgrade their style game is to give a classic fashion item that can be easily paired with clothes they already own. Some options are a black leather jacket, basic cardigans, and basic white tee.

The holidays are upon us! This season is going to be filled with parties and get-togethers, and we’re sure you’re excited not only to experience the festivities with your loved ones but also showing up dressed to the nines and made-up to perfection. Now, we know that going for a red lip during the holiday season is a no-brainer. But this year, we challenge you to shake things up and make a statement with looks that are out of the box and eye-catching. If you haven’t planned out your party look for this year’s festivities yet, here are some ideas to get you started.

Complexion perfection

Making a statement isn’t always about being flashy or out-there. Sometimes, the biggest statements are delivered with silence and subduedness. This year, instead of sparkles and glitters, go for complexion that’s so perfect, it warrants attention. The goal is to keep it clean, even and on-point. Make sure you have your base covered. Start with a moisturised face and apply a face base that has good coverage and is easy to apply. The FS Features & Shades Two-Way Cake is a great choice. It’s a mineral-based versatile powder that you can use wet or dry. Aside from it being long-lasting, it also has SPF35+ PA+++ for sun protection.

Eye-lure

Let the eyes have it — and by “it” we mean attention. Instead of putting the colour red on your lips, why not apply it on your eyes? Create a smokey eye look with a unique pop of colour. Start off with how you usually do a smokey eye look, but instead of just black or brown, pop on a rich red on lids or the crease for a sultry touch. The FS Features & Shades Single Eyeshadow in Ruby Stone is just what you need for this kind of look. The marriage of terracotta and fiery ruby hues results in a decadent warm shade that’s mesmerising to look at.

Get cheek-y

Don’t just put colour on your cheeks for dimension, make them the centre of attention. This year paved the way for the rise of many seemingly unusual trends that are actually super gorgeous. One of those is draping. To achieve this look, simply think: strategically over-applied blush. Instead of just focusing on the apples of your cheeks, take the colour up to your temples. For an ethereal sun-kissed glow, use the FS Features & Shades Powder Blush in Nude Peach. The product is easy to blend and lasts a long time.
