Fenty Skin comes to Thailand

The wait is finally over. The highly anticipated skincare brand by Rihanna has made it to Thailand with an array of “clean, uncomplicated, and effective skincare for all.” Whilst we’re still studying and exploring many of the products (there’s a nice selection to choose from!), we’re already loving the minimalist and eco-friendly packaging. Several of the products are refillable (very 2021), and all formulas are vegan, cruelty- and gluten-free. If 2021 is the year where you switch up your skincare, this product launch arrived just in time.

Best for: Fenty Beauty aficionados, and anyone who loves Rihanna

Chanel gets floral this season

There’s no denying that plants and floral arrangements are one of the biggest trends of the minute. Together with Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Makeup Creation Studio unveils ‘Les Fleurs de Chanel’ this season, featuring a soothing colour palette along both warm and bright tones. Where the delicate meets the bold, we’re loving the touches of coral orange in this collection, mixing shimmering colours with earthy brown undertones. Definitely a subtle yet very beautiful way to let your feminine side shine in a contemporary manner for Spring.

Best for: Anyone who is ready for the warmer months

Drunk Elephant shows what sake can do

It’s a cocktail for your skin. The new Drunk Elephant Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Spray contains fermented sake extract, kombucha, and hops, to restore, soothe, and balance the skin. It achieves this by mimicking the elements that keep the skin barrier strong, and thereby promoting a healthy collagen production. Your face is left feeling soft and moisturised after a refreshing spritz of this stuff. Who knew sake could do so much more than accompany omakase?

Best for: Those who dislike the alcohol ban but know it’s good for their skin

Wear to: Early bird dinner

FOREO Iris looks naughty but is actually very useful

Anything that calls itself an ‘eyebrator’ already has our attention from the get-go. This February, we’re a little in love with FOREO Iris, an eye massager device that is designed to fit perfectly to the shape and skin around the eyes. Aiming to boost micro-blood circulation and oxygenate the skin, it’s a perfect tool for those who are looking to battle dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. It is also said to reduce signs of ageing and fatigue, and to refresh you after hours in front of blue light.

Best for: Those who stare at a screen all day, are constantly tired, and need motivation to apply eye cream

Wear to: Gaze into your lover’s eyes this Vday

Caudalie lifts your face without botox

We will not let you look old this 2021. Caudalie is back for February with an oil-free re-sculpting serum that is designed to re-plump and firm the skin. Using the magic of hyaluronic acid and more, the Resveratrol Lift Firming Serum is filled with plenty of good stuff that works on natural collagen and elastin to lift facial contours. The texture is light and hydrating, making it a sweet number to use under makeup, too.

Best for: Those who partied too hard in December (and where you can still tell)

Wear to: An important morning meeting

Priced at: THB 3065

Buy at: Sephora stores or online.
