It is only the third month of 2020, and if you’re already feeling worn out for the year, you’re not alone. Yet despite all the negative energy and news around us, we decided to look on the bright side and make the very best of this downtime, to discover some new music, cross off our watchlist and maybe build an all-inclusive nighttime ritual.
Try to remember those wild and restless days (which we once took it for granted), you’ll realise your nighttime routine deserves not only skincare but a top-to-toe ritual to treat yourself after a long day and get ready for the hustle that comes after the next dawn.
From Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream to GHD helios™ professional hairdryer and Frank Body In Your Dreams Sleep Scrub & Soak, here's an edit of our top-to-toe PM self-care kit featuring the Sephora Spring Summer 2020 collection.
FRANK BODY IN YOUR DREAMS SLEEP SCRUB & SOAK
Firstly, get naked, take off whatever restrains you and begin the night with Frank Body’s first-ever decaf creation made of Mother Nature’s calming heroes. Scrub it onto your skin to exfoliate or sprinkle a handful into your bath to soothe muscles and melt the tension away.
DR.JART+ VITAL HYDRA SOLUTION BIOME ESSENCE
Have you ever heard of the good bacteria? Long story short, this new essence from Dr. Jart+ promises a formula that nourishes the good bacteria in our skin microbiome, which leads to moisture-balanced skin with stronger barrier against environmental aggressors. Your skin will thank you for the healthy glow that comes after.
DR. DENNIS GROSS ALPHA BETA® PORE PERFECTING & REFINING SERUM
A pore care holy grail, powered by 7 types of Alpha Beta® acids, Dr. Dennis Gross Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum lifts away impurities and excess sebum without dehydrating the skin. Not only it keeps blemish and breakout at bay, it also thrives the natural hydration and renewal of skin for a healthier complexion.
BIOSSANCE SQUALANE + MARINE ALGAE EYE CREAM
We tried the Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel and we were amazed by how it evened out the textured skin around the eye area and faded our dark circles.
As a reinvented version of its elder sibling, the latest eye cream comes in a richer formula that makes it ideal for PM skincare. Blended from Biossance’s signature sustainable Squalane and other anti-ageing goodness, it works wonder on tired, dehydrated eye area to achieve well-rested looking eyes. No more excuse to neglect your eye area skincare, y'all!
DRUNK ELEPHANT F-BALM™ ELECTROLYTE WATERFACIAL HYDRATING MASK
Niche skincare brand Drunk Elephant introduces the F-Balm™ Masque, an everyday essential made for all the overnight mask addicts out there.
Its gel-like texture is relatively light compared to other night masks, hence it is why you can wear it every night as a treatment to restore the balance of skin’s hydration and moisture levels. Layer the TLC Framboos™ serum before F-Balm™ for a tender exfoliation to enhance the absorption and result.
SEPHORA COLLECTION GLOW BODY CREAM
This year, we’re learning to spoil our body as much as how we take good care of our face. The first thing is to commit to cute body cream.
Formulated with 98% natural ingredients, Sephora Collection Glow Body Cream leaves us with radiant and hydrated skin. Plus, the fresh rosy note is a bonus sprinkle of wellness to your everyday bathroom routine.
NEW GHD HELIOS™ PROFESSIONAL HAIRDRYER
A godsend for permed hair and those who go experimental with their looks, the new GHD hairdryer promises handy and professional styling experience with its Aeroprecis™ technology.
Personally, it takes us less than 10 minutes to do a long and wavy hair, that looks shiny and silky soft – all thanks to the concentrated temperature and airflow distribution. You can really count on GHD for a good hair day, and once you tried it, there is no going back!
SLIP LARGE SCRUNCHIES
Made from 100% highest grade of mulberry silk, the Slip Scrunchie is the new cult-favourite you need to know. Its wide surface and ultra-soft material is the secret to no-crease hair, and you can finally say bye to those brutal tangles. Now you’re ready for the rest of the night.
THIS WORKS LOVE SLEEP PILLOW SPRAY
There are always a few bad nights where falling asleep becomes difficult and the This Works Pillow Spray is always that miracle concoction we swear by. With its new recipe grounded by Ylang Ylang and Patchouli, the Love Sleep Pillow Spray helps you to switch off, for one, and even turn you on, for two – truly something tailored for sleep and intimacy.
