Your Best Skin Partners In Life

If your approach to skincare is strolling down the aisle of your local drugstore or Sephora, picking up whichever product sounds the most appealing, going home, and slathering it on, we've got some news for you: Unfortunately, you're doing it wrong. Skincare products need to be selected carefully and should be as tailored and specific to your skin type as well as the situation. There's a product for every situation possible and we broke it down for you here. Sometimes the best partners make all the difference in life.
(+) 1. Travel Partners
Call us wanderlusters. We’re big fans of long weekends and traveling pretty much anywhere when we get the chance. But no adventure should be at the expense of our makeup and skincare routines. 

Sloane Inc Heal Oil
Heal is a lightweight 100% pure argan oil that's bursting in vitamin E and essential fatty acids to give your skin a youthful dewy glow. Gentle enough to use on all skin types, it has astonishing healing & conditioning properties to keep your skin healthy, strong and glowing. A quick roll across the under eyes and any dehydrated facial zones replenishes and soothes tired, dull skin.  We like how it comes with a roller ball, almost begging for you to stash it in your ziplock bag.

USD $39, available at

Dr Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Moisture Cushion
If there's one ingredient to focus on for your travel beauty bag, it's hyaluronic acid. It pulls in water to keep the skin well hydrated. But that's not all: Hyaluronic acid is also occlusive, meaning that it doesn't just draw water in, but obstructs it from leaving, as well. This extra element of defense is key—otherwise, the climate-controlled air will just continue to suck out whatever extra moisture you're providing your skin.

USD $58, available at

Hardy & Co Super Hydrating Skin Pampering Mist
A face mist is an easy, mess-free way to give your complexion a quick drink of water. Super Hydrating Skin Pampering Mist is formulated with champagne grape extracts to deeply hydrate, replenish and rejuvenate skin for a supple, luminous appearance. Its profound powers of rejuvenation are derived from potent, highly active ingredients like Vitamin A as well as coconut & perilla stem cell extracts which impart unsurpassed antioxidant, protectant and anti-defying benefits while optimising cellular metabolism. Super Hydrating Skin Pampering Mist optimises & replenishes skin with precious nutrients, immersing it in moisture and energy.

(+) 2. Gym Partner
Working out falls into the “necessary evil” category for multiple reasons. One of which being that it can seriously mess with your skin. Some workout side effects are welcome, like increased strength and better endurance. But, others we don't love — specifically, acne. And, the biggest acne-causing offenders are items you don’t want to go without, like exercise machines, your headphones, towel, and sports bra.

While the should-you-wear-makeup-to-work-out debate is alive and well, it’s actually more important to wash your skin after than before working out because — even if you're diligent with your makeup-removing wipes — oils, bacteria, and sweat will accumulate on the skin. Still, if you're wearing a heavy foundation & you have time to spare, it’s good to wash your skin with a mild, non-drying cleanser, followed by an alcohol-free toner, and lightweight, oil-free lotion before hitting the gym.

Sloane Inc Ice Souffle Cleanser
A unique, mild and pH balanced whipped deep pore cleanser that deeply cleanses, dissolves grime, and fights acne crimes in an easy-rinse, skin refreshing formula. This is great for anti-acne, skin clarifying and long lasting shine control. Formulated with selective botanical blends such as peppermint to leave your skin feeling refreshed, soft as supple with regular use.

USD $45, available at

(+) 3. Life Partner
While a few basic skincare ingredients have become household names, one is constantly part of the conversation: retinol. Simply put, retinol is a cosmetic ingredient that, when absorbed into skin, is transformed into retinoic acid—a.k.a. the magic that has majorly game-changing effects on the overall appearance and health of your skin (think anti-aging, acne-clearing, and tone-enhancing). A godsend to those who dream of reversing past and future damage, preventing wrinkles, correcting discoloration, and/or helping to manage skin conditions such as acne and eczema, retinol is basically a reverie—tubed. And this is why, Retinol is our life partner. 

Sloane Inc Age Defy
You can’t go wrong with something with as solid a foundation as Sloane Inc Age Defy. Power packed with potent, clinical-grade anti-aging skincare actives, you are never too young or too old to invest in your skin’s future. This wonder moisturiser carries a boatload of benefits, including potent line-smoothening, pore-refining and tone-amping action – courtesy of its vitamin A-powered repair system, collagen-boosting peptides and skin-soothing regenerative natural extracts that reawaken skin’s resilience, radiance and elasticity. This is fantastc for youth-enhancing, anti-aging and glow-inducing effects.

USD $169, available at

(+) 4. Sleep Partner
Sleeping Beauty did not just wake up looking gorgeous without a little bit of help. Beautiful mornings start at night. As the entire body goes into repair mode, the skin renews and rebuilds itself in your slumber. Skincare containing AHA, vitamin A, antioxidants or collagen-boosting peptides supercharge your beauty sleep by optimising this dermal repair process. 

USD $78, available at

Alpha-H Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid

This multi action formula is enriched with silk proteins, licorice extract and Glycolic Acid. It works to jump start the skin's metabolism, tightening enlarged pores and giving a brighter, clearer complexion.

SGD $52.80, available at
