As we continue our work-from-home days, this cooldown period gives our skin a much-needed break from anything that can worsen the rashes and breakouts beneath the mask. However, we are not discounting how the ritual of putting on some makeup is keeping us sane and somehow improving our productivity, and it leads us to this list of beauty products with extra gentle formula (that won't burden the skin) we have been obsessed with.
So time to check them out and get that instant perk-me-up to brighten your day while you work from home.
CHANEL LES BEIGES SHEER HEALTHY GLOW MOISTURIZING TINT BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30
On mornings with Zoom meetings, we ditch our usual moisturiser and turn to this iconic tinted moisturiser from Chanel for sheer, illuminating second skin-like coverage that comes with an instant boost of hydration.
DR. JART+ CICAPAIR RE-COVER SPF 40/PA++ CC CREAM
For sensitive skin that needs a little extra TLC, Dr. Jart+’s Cicapair™ Re-Cover Cream tackles redness, soothes irritation and blurs imperfections with a multi-tasking formula powered by Centella Asiatica (Tiger Grass) Complex. The green-to-beige correcting cream also got your sun protection covered with an SPF of 40.
FENTY BEAUTY BRIGHT FIX UNDEREYE BRIGHTENER
With our sleeping schedule completely messed up
again, we could really use some wake-up calls for those weary eyes. Made perfect for the warm and humid weather in Malaysia, it comes in a lightweight serum-like texture that instantly hydrates, brightens and blurs the uninvited shadow under eyes with a sheer, glowy finish.
DIOR ROUGE DIOR LIP BALM
A cousin of the cult-favourite Dior Addict Lip Glow, this translucent lip balm worn by the models at Dior Men’s Fall 2021 show will be living at our study desk throughout these stay at home days. Its organic cocktail is enriched with peony and pomegranate flower extracts to envelop lips with pure hydration and subtle shine.
SUPERGOOP! (RE)SETTING 100% MINERAL POWDER BROAD SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN SPF 35 PA+++
Making a habit of wearing sunscreen daily isn’t easy, getting into the habit of reapplying your SPF is even harder, but not until we discovered this setting powder and sunscreen hybrid. It contains Ceramide 3 and Olive Glycerides to help replenish the skin’s barrier and give dehydrated skin a boost with a shine-free, soft-focus finish.
Keep it close at hand to touch up your SPF and get rid of that mid-day shine. Perfect when you are heading out for a quick grocery run or other errands throughout the day.
BITE BEAUTY DAYCATION WHIPPED BLUSH
An unscheduled conference call in 10 minutes? We can skip those foundation and concealer but not the blush ‘cause what liven up a tired face like a sun-kissed flush? This papaya extract-infused cream blush is so light that it looks incredibly natural on bare face. After applying your SPF, dab the pigment onto the apples and sheer it out for a soft definition. (Try shade Melon Mojito and Coconut Rum.)
GLOW RECIPE WATERMELON GLOW SLEEPING MASK
Put aside 5 to 10 minutes in the morning to let this mask sit on your skin before you cleanse -we tried this skin prep trick of Glow Recipe’s founder Sarah and it helps control shine like a dream. The mask refines pores, leaves skin balanced and deeply hydrated all day long, thanks to a powerhouse blend of watermelon extract, AHA and hyaluronic acid.
BYREO OPEN SKY EAU DE PARFUM
While travel becomes a distant flashback, Byredo encapsulates the experience of a journey in its latest olfactory blend. Open Sky opens with citrusy pomelo and black pepper to whisk the nomad in you to any destination, rounded by green and woody notes of Hemp Leaves, Vetiver and Palo Santo for a homecoming ending.
