Cleansing Oils

Don't let the idea of cleaning your skin with oil scare you. Cleansing oils are incredibly effective in ridding skin of sebum, dirt, excess oils and impurities without leaving it feeling stripped and tight. They also leave the skin feeling smooth and dewy.

Makeup for All

In 2017, we saw the queen of beauty Rhianna rocked the beauty industry with her collection that features colours for all skin tones. And now, it turns out even more brands like L’Oreal, Kylie Cosmetics and even Marc Jacob are releasing their own collections with foundations that match the fairest to the darkest skin tones, making it even easier to get an exact match for your skin tone.

Facial Rollers

When we first saw facial rollers appear on our social media timelines, we didn't know what to think. But now as we dive into the second month of 2018 , rollers are definitely here to stay. If you have yet to try one out, they are made from precious materials like platinum, gold, jade and quartz and they take skin firming game to the next level. Facial rollers can be highly effective in increasing oxygen levels in skin, eliminating toxins and promoting facial relaxation.

Japanese Brands

In 2017, Korean beauty was all the rage - think sheet masks and beauty water. And now it appears that Japanese beauty trends are having a serious moment in the beauty spotlight. Thanks to Japan's recovering economy, the Japanese beauty industry is making a major comeback. Look forward to simple and science-backed products and keep your eyes peeled for brands like Shiseido, DHC, Sensai, and Yu-Be.
