One of our favourite things to do at the end of the day is our nighttime skincare routine. Taking some time for ourselves to cleanse and nourish our skin is an essential part of our evening ritual for self-care. Estée Lauder understands the importance of the skin’s restorative process at night, which is why it redeveloped its cult-favourite serum into the Advanced Night Repair Synchronised Complex II. The recharged serum will be launched at its Power of Night Pop-Up Store at the Visual Arts Centre in Singapore.


Estee Lauder Pop-Up Store


Lack of sleep stresses out the skin by disrupting its ability to repair itself, resulting in premature signs of aging. The stress causes collagen and elastin to break down, making the skin more vulnerable to environmental aggressors like pollution, UV rays, and blue light, which we are exposed to even at night. Advanced Night Repair Synchronised Complex II features the revolutionary ChronoluxCB™ technology, which combines cell repair with the body’s circadian rhythm, ensuring that our skin gets the restoration it needs during peak time.


Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum


The formula also includes Anti-Pollution Technology to reduce the effect of environmental stress, Daily Prevention antioxidants to neutralise free radicals, and Continuous Hydration Hyaluronic Acid to keep the skin primed and moisturised in order to maximise the benefits of its active ingredients.



The Power of Night Pop-Up Store will have more details discussed about the Advanced Night Repair Synchronised Complex II serum through its interactive night discovery quiz in its in-store living room. In the bedroom, guests can discover ways to use the serum with Power of Night film series muses Joanne Peh, Nurul Aini, and Oon Shu An.

The setup also includes Instagram-worthy beauty stations for pictures and a Sleeping Beauties Wall where guests can post their favourite beauty sleep images and spread their love for the Advanced Night serum. Tagging event photos with the hashtag #PowerofNightSG will enter them into the Instagram contest, with three winners taking home beauty prizes worth SGD500 each, including a full-sized bottle of the Advanced Night serum. Celebrate the power of night by dropping by at the event!



The Estée Lauder Power of Night Pop-Up Store will run from 23 March to 24 March, from 11 AM to 8 PM.

We understand that there are some things that can affect our happiness. When it comes to our skin, a sudden breakout or a pesky pimple can really put a damper on things (and on our mood). Why these breakouts happen can be due to any number of factors: clogged pores, stress, poor diet, allergic reactions, hormonal imbalances and so on. But when they happen, our first line of defence is an effective spot treatment that can provide speedy damage control and offer our skin the relief it needs. Here, we round up the big guns of pimple-fighting products, recommended by dermatologists and regular users alike.


The Drugstore Favourite: Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment

Neutrogena On The Spot Acne Treatment

Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment, SGD11.50/~USD8 (watsons.com.sg)


For a quick fix that won’t break your wallet, try Neutrogena’s On-The-Spot Acne Treatment. Formulated with 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, it penetrates deep into pores to target the P. acnes bacteria without causing extreme dryness or irritation.


For Pesky Pustules: CosRx Acne Pimple Master Pad


CosRx Pimple Patch

CosRx Acne Pimple Master Pad 24s, SGD5.31/~USD4 (watsons.com.sg)


We’ll say it again, do NOT pop that pimple. To avoid picking at pimples that are ripe for the popping, stick on one of these pimple patches from the CosRx Acne Pimple Master Pad. The hydrocolloid stickers work by drawing out and absorbing oil and gunk from your pores, effectively eliminating the infection but minimising scarring.


For Stubborn Cystic Pimples: Differin 1% Acne Gel


Differin 1% Acne Gel

Differin 1% Acne Gel SGD19/~USD14, available over-the-counter in drugstores


Differin’s 1% acne gel is a fan favourite for containing a prescription-strength retinoid, adapalene, which unclogs pores and encourages cell turnover for faster skin repair. It helps fight and regulate cystic acne which tends to hide under the skin surface, making it difficult for topical treatments to reach. The best part? You can also use this over-the-counter product all over your face to prevent future breakouts.



For Calming Redness and Inflammation: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

For Multiple Blemishes: Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel
