Looking for a lighter rendition of the Perfect EDP?

A couple of spritzes will last all day, and the light body makes it perfect for layering with other perfumes for more complex notes.

2.Double Serum Light from Clarins S$179, 50ml

The humidity of Singapore can make a multi-step skincare routine feel sticky at times with various products layered on top of each other. Clarins has now launched a lightweight version of its iconic Double Serum that is quickly absorbed into the skin! The same formula of 21 plant extracts that reduces the visible signs of ageing is refined into a new trio of super-lightweight oil molecules that diffuses the active ingredients before disappearing. A pump of serum every night is sufficient to plump, hydrate, and brighten skin, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines.

3.Chronobiology Sleep Mask from Noble Panacea S$515, 8 masks

The Chronobiology Sleep Mask instantly becoming Noble Panacea’s holy grail upon its recent global launch, lauded for its high performance treatment that works overnight magic. Created by Fraser Stoddart, a Nobel Laureate scientist, the sleeping mask uses OSMV technology that works in synergy with the body’s biorhythm to slowly release a mix of active ingredients like biotics, retinol, ceramide NP and 2D hyaluronic acid at optimal times throughout the night to detox, repair and nourish the skin. The all-in-one solution is a fuss-free experience, coming in a single dose sachet. Forego your nightly beauty routine, apply only the mask after cleansing your face, and voila – wake up to rejuvenated skin!
