Must-Have Beauty Products for Great Skin
Amid all the new beauty products and skincare formulas that hit the market, these must-haves belong in every skincare fanatics’ cabinet.
We all want to get the most out of our skincare routines. But getting the most mileage out of your skincare cocktail requires targeting your very individual and specific needs. Unfortunately, no single product works for everyone under the sun.
The good news? There are noteworthy products that skincare aficionados and experts return to time and time again, to give their skin targeted plumping, retexturising, and brightening.
Whether you’re a minimalist or looking to create an extensive regimen, here's our selection of skincare products everyone should have in their lineup.
Clinique's much-loved Moisture Surge hydrator provides 100 hours of hydration.
Clinique hit the market in 1968 when it introduced its iconic line of dermatologist-developed skincare. What made Clinique different was that it avoided any ingredients that could potentially irritate the skin or cause allergies. In the age of trendy makeup and indie brands, this classic purveyor of quality skincare continues to woo die-hard fans with its clinical approach to beauty.
One of Clinique’s fan-favourites is the refreshing Moisture Surge 100Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. Not content with anything less than 100 hours of pure, plumped hydration, this upgraded version of the oil-free gel-cream moisturiser features aloe bio-ferment — a probiotic-charged aloe blend that keeps the skin’s microbiome healthy, happy and hydrated.
Other ingredients include hyaluronic acid to draw and retain moisture in different layers of the skin. In other words, this product offers water-based hydration that banishes dehydration in favour of perfectly plump skin.
Innisfree’s crowd-favourite Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-up Cream is now accompanied by the new Jeju Cherry Blossom Jam Cleanser.
Innisfree was South Korea’s first all-natural beauty brand. Using only reliable ingredients obtained from pure nature and the consistent perpetuation in eco-friendly green design, Innisfree promises to stay environmentally sustainable in the pursuit of delivering beauty from nature to consumers. This brand is a go-to for many skincare enthusiasts because of its wide range of safe and natural ingredients that can suit even the most sensitive skin.
Innisfree sources 80 per cent of its product ingredients from Jeju Island, located off the coast of South Korea, and showcases the bounty of Jeju Island once again with the Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-up Cream. This product is a morning cream and has a lightweight formula that is infused with Jeju Cherry Blossom leaf extracts. Along with natural betaine, this must-have beauty product leaves a beautiful, natural, glowing finish on the skin. There’s also the all-new Jeju Cherry Blossom Jam Cleanser, which is formulated with Jeju King Cherry Leaf extract and natural betaine. This pH-balanced gel-to-foam cleanser will leave your skin with a luminous glass-like glow after each wash. The gentle and mild micellar formula makes it suitable for daily use, and effectively absorbs the impurities embedded in your skin.
This show-stopping duo will light up your skin and provide an all-natural glow without the need for makeup.
