The ultimate cover-up job
Still new to Singapore, paramedical skin camouflage is the art of concealing or covering skin imperfections/disorders with the use of cosmetics. This helps to minimise attention drawn to the imperfections and alleviate the sometimes psychological and social effects that these may have on the person’s life. Niks Cover Cream is a premier paramedical camouflage cream that can be applied thinly or thickly (depending on needs) for a soft matte finish. It comes in a range of 18 skin shades to ensure the closest possible match with one’s skin tone.
Formulated in Singapore and made in the United States and Europe, the cream is suitable for all skin types and can be used after IPL, laser and microdermabrasion. Niks Cover Cream can be used to cover or normalise permanent and temporary discolourations such as:
Scars due to trauma, burns or cancer
Various types of pigmentation
Dark eye circles Temporary discolourations

You might not know it but Konjac or what is often known as konnyaku, is not just great for eating but can also do wonders for your face. The Konjac clean sponge is 100% natural as it is made from plant gel fibre. Besides being eco-friendly, its natural cleaning function makes it good for exfoliating and deep cleansing even the most sensitive of skins. It also promotes facial blood circulation and retains the skin’s moisture to make it soft and fairer.
Made in Taiwan, the Konjac clean sponge has received rave reviews in Korea and Japan as well. The Konjac clean sponges come in several versions to address the needs of different skin types, whether it is to curb acne, accelerate exfoliation or improve whitening.
***** I will be updating this entry with a complete list of the brands and vendors which you will be able to check out at the show *******
In past years, I have come across China Glaze, Deborah Lippmann, Zoya nail polishes selling at discounted prices. There are also lots of opportunities to get beauty supplies (hair irons, tongs, etc etc), false lashes, salon equipment, and I heard that this year, Hakuhodo brushes will also be taking part. I can't wait to share the final list of vendors as soon as I get more information.
