As if the blazing heat of the summer in Singapore isn’t enough reason to detest the season, it also comes with the additional burden of having to get into shape (for the beach), paying extra attention to our skin (in protection against the heat) and smelling good (no explanation needed). Thankfully, new beauty product launches have got us covered on all grounds. We pick the three we’d like most for our shelves.
NIP + FAB
Cult beauty label NIP + FAB, which counts celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham as fans, is finally in Singapore with a range of body and face skincare.
The younger sister of premium cult beauty brand Rodial, NIP + FAB is the latest beauty treat to arrive to our shores, offering a clinically-tested range for both face and body. Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham are reportedly fans of the products, which include ab sculpting gel Tummy Fix, as well as wrinkle buster Frown Fix. Of course, with such reasonable prices, don’t expect miraculous results overnight. We’d totally get them just for the packaging though.
Price tag: From S$15.90 – S$22.90
NIP + FAB is now available at all Watsons stores islandwide and at nipandfab.com.sg
Shu Uemura Porefinist
Just the thing for the summer: Shu Uemura’s new Porefinist works to remove all the grime of the day, giving you smooth and translucent skin.
The sweltering heat is a major cause of those unsightly opened pores, and Shu Uemura has just the thing to combat against them. Its new and improved Porefinist now comes with a Micro Refining Complex, and together with its unique Pore Cleansing System, works to both purify and tighten pores, leaving skin smooth and translucent.
Price tag: S$55
The Shu Uemura Porefinist is now available at all Shu Uemura counters.
Polo Blue Sport Fragrance
The Polo Blue sport fragrance is the perfect accompaniment for every sportsman — it’s a sparkling concoction of fruity and warm notes.
Here’s one for the sportsmen. The all-new Polo Blue Sport captures the celebration of competition and sportsmanship in a sparkling citrus fragrance with the top notes of frosted mint and apple, heart notes of water fern, ginger and sage, and base notes of amberwood, musk and patchouli. We also love the striking white packaging of the bottle, accentuated with the diagonal navy-and-red stripe and gold pony and cap.
Price tag: 125ml for S$73 and 75ml for S$58
Polo Blue is now available at all major department stores.
