Hi! Just a quick (I hope!) entry to give you an idea of what skincare entries will be coming next on the blog. Just like the A/W makeup collections, a variety of skincare launches have been making their way to my 'desk' and I think I might not have enough time to blog about them in the coming week, so I shall go a quick overview and introudction to some new products.
I will definitiely be dedicating a specific blog enty to each brand of products which you are about to see, so do stay tuned.
First up, are a couple of travel exclusive sets from Clinique and Bobbi Brown.
The Clinique set consists of everything you need, from makeup removal, to cleansing, face routine and an eye cream -- all in handy travel sizes. I have not used Clinique skincare before, so I will be keen to see how this goes for me. And I am going on a quick short trip in Sept, so you will be sure I am taking this set along with me to use!
The Bobbi Brown set is a combination of two products, the Hydrating Eye Cream and the Hydrating Face Cream. I have heard great stuff about the eye cream in particular, so I am quite excited to try it after my current eye cream runs out.
Both sets are sold exclusively at Travel Retail locations. so the next time you are jet setting, do keep a lookout for these. :)
NEW Launches on 26 August!
BIOTHERM releases the Skin.ergetic, which is a fresh skincare formula with Brocoli, known for its antioxidant power, soy protein and botantical cells from apples. Skin.ergetic also contains AHA from lemons and sugar cane to stimulate cell renewal and radiance. The unique combination of these powderful elements repairs the signs of fatigue before they turn into signs of ageing.
This product targets women of all ages who experience tired skin -- and signs include: Loss of radiance, uneven complexion, visible pores, unrefined skin texture and roughness.

Fresh Skincare Techonology:
Invented by Biotherm, and activated at the last minute, this technology makes it possible for Skin.ergetic to:
use a higher concentration of active ingredients for maximum effectiveness
keep volatile antioxidants fresh until application
The Powder of Broccoli is activated in 3 simple steps:
1. click to release contents of the activation capsule
2. shake to mix the Skin.ergetic formula throughly
3. remove the activation capsule and insert the dropper
Upon activation, the product stays fresh and performs at optimal efficency for three months.
[September 2011] CLARINS relaunches their Hydra Quench Range - using the main ingredient, the Katafray - which is a tree found across Madagascar, and its elegant silhouette is a common sight in the arid forests of the south and west of the Grande Ile. Its light-coloured wood is as resistant as ebony and widely used in local building.
In traditional Madagascan medicine, a drink prepared from the bark is reputed to have tonic and febrifuge benefits and its essential oil is known for its fortifying and soothing actions. It was recently discovered that katafray bark extract helps improve the quality of the corneal layer and encourages the skin’s natural hydration mechanisms.
The extract used by Clarins Laboratories – developed exclusively for the brand and protected by its fair trade policy– is obtained through a process which preserves the biodiversity of tropical forests.
I have been experiencing rather dry skin lately, and I am really looking forward to trying the products out in a couple of weeks' time.
If you are already a user of the current Clarins HydraQuench Range, this new launch will replace the current one... and I am sure you will find this improved range equally good, if not better. My sister is a huge fan of the Clarins Bi-Phase Serum, and she swears by it every night to keep her skin soft and hydrated.
The HydraQuench Range consists of 3 main products:
Bi-Phase Serum S$94
Cream Melt: S$83
Cream Gel: S$83
Will definitely do an indepth feature of this collection in the coming week.
Hope this 'news bulletin' feature is useful!
Thanks for looking!
products mentioned in this entry are given to me for consideration.
