DIORSKIN NUDE NATURAL GLOW HYDRATING MAKEUP



Containing nearly 40% water, this fluid foundation offers an instant sensation of well-being. Skin appears fresher, silky and feels more comfortable.
Thanks to micro-droplets of water, this foundation’s coverage is lighter than a more “classic” fluid formula, even as it evens out the complexion and makes it appear more radiant and transparent.
With daily use, the skin becomes more beautiful for an ever more natural and radiant result than upon first application.

STRIVECTIN® OVERNIGHT FACIAL RESURFACING SERUM


Saw this product when I was on SQ flight.
Found it quite interesting but not sure how well it work?
As mention from the Kris Shop magazine - This is a multi-tasking exfoliating leave-on serum that works to address multiple surface signs of ageing. This lightweight serum is easily absorbed and works overnight to provide non-abrasive exfoliation by increasing the productivity of enzymes responsible for natural exfoliation. Ideal for men and women of all skin types.

There's a difference between abrasive exfoliators and the non-abrasive, gentle action of StriVectin's Overnight Facial Resurfacing Serum... a big difference. The only thing abrasive exfoliators do is scrape off dead skin. That's it... there's really no magic to it. On the other hand, StriVectin's topically applied Overnight Facial Resurfacing Serum gently dissolves surface imperfections while you sleep, minimizing the appearance of large pores, evening skin tone and color, and improving the skin's overall appearance.

Price: S$87.00
