New In Beauty: The Latest Skincare And Makeup You Should Try In November 2019
Winters can get dry in Hong Kong, which means it's time to prioritise keeping our skin moisturised. This month, we round up a collection of new hydrating and nourishing beauty products that not only pamper your skin, but also areas you tend to neglect—like your scalp and vulva.
1/8 Chantecaille Real Skin+ Eye and Face Stick
Perfect for women on the go, Chantecaille’s Real Skin+ Eye and Face Stick is a multi-tasker—use it as a complexion perfector, undereye concealer, or a quick and precise spot treatment. Packaged in a sleek and portable metallic case, the concealer stick is the size of a lipstick, allowing you to easily carry it in your purse or pocket. Don’t let the stick formula put you off—the texture is, in fact, lightweight and creamy with buildable coverage for a natural finish. It is also infused with hydrating raspberry stem cell and hibiscus extract for added anti-ageing benefits.

6/8 Two L(i)ps Bumpps
Created to revolutionise intimate care, local brand Two L(i)ps celebrates its first anniversary with the launch of Bumpps, a sebum-control serum that address folliculitis—itchy, swollen and red bumps that appear when hair follicles are inflamed. Best used after your Brazillian wax to soothe irritated skin, the liquid solution is formulated with arrowroot extract, chamomile extract, and tea tree oil for their anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. You can even use it on your face to control oily T-zone and reduce the appearance of blackheads.

7/8 Act + Acre
There are two rules to this three-step hair care system, created by Helen Reavey, who is also hairstylist to celebrities like Alicia Keys and Harry Styles: first, always double-cleanse your hair; and second, detox your scalp weekly. Thoroughly modern in its methods and endeavour, Act + Acre is the world’s first cold-processed haircare range (for better hair and scalp health) and is more environmentally sustainable as well. The formulas are vegan and free of common irritants such as silicone, sulphate, paraben and gluten, while the bottles are made from PETG1, the most recyclable form of plastic.
Available at Sephora
If sleep is a luxury for you, then perhaps ByNacht is a skincare range you should look into. Borne out sleepless nights, this German brand by Jessica Hoyer was created with consultation from an aromatherapist (the founder’s mother and creator of their signature Sleeping Balm) and dermatologists, neurologists as well as a sleep expert, Rebecca Robbins, a leading expert in the field of sleep. Considering that Singaporeans are amongst the most sleep-deprived in the world, this might be the key to making beauty sleep a reality.
