Unboxing: SK-II Genoptics Spot Pen | Clozette

Every skincare junkie knows that dark spots can be very stubborn. Sometimes it will take more than a week to get rid of its last traces completely. If you're especially prone to pigmentation, this can be a big nuisance. Sure, there are makeup bases and concealers to even out your skin tone but wouldn't it be nice to not use those at all? Thankfully, we now have plenty of skincare options to keep dark spots at bay.

One such product is the newly launched SK-II Genoptics Spot Pen, which caught our keen eye. Debuted exclusively at The Shilla Duty Free in Changi Airport, this latest skincare release boasts an innovative design and formula. It has the highest concentration of SK-II's WH Smart Cocktail out of all the brand's products. Plus, it's boosted with PITERA™ to effectively address spot concerns. To ensure maximum product absorption, a new packaging design featuring the magnetic booster was developed. Handy and lightweight, this new skincare product is also a great travel companion.

Clarins Ice Cream Bar

Who doesn't love ice cream? Apparently, even the skincare experts from Clarins can't say no to its appeal because they're mixing beauty and sweet treats together in their new Ice Cream Bar in collaboration with gelato boutique Birds of Paradise. From 8 to 17 March at ION Orchard B4 in Singapore, you can enjoy fun-filled activities that join together a personalised skincare and ice cream-making experience. This is a treat for both your skin and your tastebuds that you wouldn't want to miss. 

Kat Von D accused of scamming by fans

Kat Von D is embroiled in another controversy. Fans have accused the artist's brand of scamming people, saying they sold a USD20 full-sized Tattoo Liner tube that supposedly contains the same amount of product as a sample size. The allegations first started when a customer posted on Facebook that the cartridge of her full-sized liner isn't even nearly as full as the liner's body. In an Instagram post, Kat Von D responded by saying, "The cartridges in both full-size liners and mini liners are the same — it’s the amount of product inside each cartridge that is different." She then went on to explain more specifics about actual measurements done for filling in their products. While it went on to appease others, others are still sceptical. What do you think?

Catch up on last week's news here.



Our perception of fringed hairstyles has significantly changed over the years. We no longer see them as just the 'do we used to don as a kid but more of a chic or maybe even sexy way of framing our features with the help of our crowning glory. That, and of course the 'protagonist vibe' it gives us as inspired by the popularity of Asian drama leading ladies often seen with a similar hairstyle. So whether you're already sporting some bangs or are just about to get on the fringe fancy train, let the Community show you how they do their fringed 'dos to give you some inspo.
