It Cosmetics Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Night Cream, $79

This soufflé-like moisturiser works as you snooze to boost skin cell turnover and renewal. Using a proprietary Rest and Restore Technology, it helps to improve five signs of skin ageing – fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, dullness and sagging – in just one week. It also has hyaluronic acid, adenosine and ceramides to nourish and repair your complexion, so you wake up looking refreshed and youthful. Another plus: it has a special formula that ensures that the product won’t transfer to your pillow as you sleep.

Slighter fatter and rounder than your regular lip pencil, this 2-in-1 matte lip crayon can be used as a traditional lip liner or applied as an all-over lip colour. Its formula also doesn’t transfer easily so they are great for wearing under a mask. The fuss-free crayon even has a built-in sharpener that’s easy to use and allows for precise touch-ups throughout the day. It's available in four gorgeous shades: a soft pink berry, a ruby red, a luscious plum and a nude brick.

Hera Cell Essence Biome Plus, $80

A reformulation of the brand’s popular first-step essence, this not only helps to rebalance and strengthen skin, it also leaves your complexion smoother, more hydrated and with a healthy glow. This third generation lotion now has the probiotic ingredient Latobacillus Ferment Lysate, that is said to be able to strengthen your skin barrier, boost the production of epidermal keratin production and tighten skin cell bonding that was weakened by external irritants so your skin will be less susceptible to inflammation or irritation. It’s our go-to when want a clear, dewy complexion.

This powder is loved by beauty insiders for its lightweight, finely milled formula that sets effortlessly and leaves your complexion with a 16-hour natural looking matte finish. This new shade addition is a peachy-yellow tone that is perfect for Asian complexions and leaves skin with a sun-kissed glow. You can use the oil-free, non-comedogenic powder to set your makeup, or on its own to soften redness or ruddiness. Here’s another useful tip: you can even apply it over your eye makeup to blend uneven looking shadow.

If you’ve always wanted to try this cult brand, but didn’t know where to start, then you’re going to love this kit. The brand carefully curated a list of six skincare products to give your skin a break from ingredients they believe are at the root of an unhappy complexion, so you can feel confident in your bare skin. They recommend that you skip the morning cleanse to help your acid mantle and go straight in with a mixture of C-Firma Day Serum and Lala Retro Whipped Cream, followed by the Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF30. At night, cleanse with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser, and then apply the T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum underneath a layer of F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial.
