The beauty and cosmetics industry is booming. No kidding. We see a ton of new releases flooding our beauty desks by the day and it’s honestly quite hard to keep up with the myriad of brands and their products. From skincare to makeup to fragrances, you name it — there’s literally a product for every skincare concern for each part of your body. We’re not exaggerating — but hey, we’re definitely not complaining. In fact, with the plethora of items to choose from, we’re definitely spoiled for choice.
So here you are, reading this article and you might be wondering, “What products am I really missing out on? What should I have known sooner”. Well, if you consider yourself a stickler for beauty routines, and you’re still on the prowl for more items to add to your stash, truth is, you have a problem. And like most of us, we’re all on the same boat too. Ever heard of the saying “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness obviously didn’t know where to shop”? #relatable
And of course, with all this mind, the best time to shop is now at Shopee Beauty Bonanza! From 16 to 25 May, Shopee will be having their biggest annual beauty sale which will feature a load of deals and sales on a ton of your favourite health and beauty brands throughout the week! 10,000 deals. 500 participating health and beauty brands — no less. With a plethora of items to choose from, here, we’ve gathered a list of products for you to consider spending some moolah on to add to your beauty routines, without breaking your bank!
Guilty of not applying sunscreens before heading out? Fret not, you’ll be surprised that most of us don’t have the habit of doing so too. *Gasp* Whatever the case is, it’s never too late to start on that habit. To protect your skin from the Sun’s harmful UV rays and other environmental aggressors, consider La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios XL SPF 50+.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Ultra-Light Fluid, $37.50 (U.P: $46.90). Available at Shopee.
Putting on makeup can be therapeutic at times but removing it is just another story to tell. If you share the same sentiments as I do, then you would know how tough it is to find the right cleanser to remove all that grime off your face after a long day, especially when all you want to do is sleep. Instead of vigorously scrubbing the gunk off your face with a facial wipe, try NIVEA’s MicellAir Professional Micellar Eye Make-Up Remover.
NIVEA MicellAir Professional Micellar Eye Make-Up Remover, $16.90 (U.P. $19.90). Available at Shopee.
What’s the point of looking good if you don’t smell good? If you love yourself a good rinse after a long day out of running errands, then L’Occitane’s Almond Shower Oil should do you good. Enriched with sweet almond, this luxurious shower oil lathers into milky foam texture that gently cleanses your skin without stripping your body’s natural oils from your skin.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil, $39. Available at Shopee
Taking care of your skin with the right skincare products are important. That, we don’t disagree. But how can we live without other beauty essentials like makeup?! Correct me if I’m wrong, but a girl must never leave her house without a lippie in hand (or at least in her purse). Agree?
For a foolproof option, enter Etude House Better Lips Talk range of lipsticks. The range comes with 60 shades for you to choose from — and not to mention, it comes in two different finishes too — matte or glossy, take your pick!
Etude House Better Lips Talk Lipstick, $18.90. Available at Shopee.
If you’ve been on the radar, then you’ve probably heard a lot about innisfree and their coveted Green Tea Seed Serum that many (including K-Pop celebrities, like Yoona and YouTubers, Q2Han) have actually sworn by. Apart from its new look, the serum also comes with a lightweight formula that absorbs instantly and provides moisture to your skin ’round the clock. The perfect go-to option especially when you’re out here battling the sweltering summer heat.

The secret to glowy skin isn’t simply based off slathering on liquid gold or heaps amount of your favourite serums. To get rid of dead skin, incorporating a face scrub just like this one by Garnier, is a definite must. Yes, they’re clocking in major face time in your beauty routine, but don’t forget that exfoliating should only be done on alternate days to avoid stripping your skin from its natural oils.
Garnier Pure Active Intensive Charcoal Scrub, $11.90 (U.P. $14.90). Available at Shopee
