Replacing any of your beauty favourites? Why not help get in the SG50 spirit and try one of these classic products that have gotten an SG50 facelift?
Over the last few months, heaps of products have gotten an SG50 makeover. From luxury designer items to these simple beauty products, there are plenty of opportunities to commemorate Singapore’s golden jubilee. Who says expats can’t show some SG50 pride?
Even better, every purchase goes back to the community in preserving Singapore’s national monuments and helping to keep our city clean and green.
So if you’re looking to replace your moisturiser, hand cream or lotion, why not make it one of these:
1. KIEHL’S HERITAGE-DESIGNED ULTRA FACIAL CREAM
$48 each for original and oil-free formulas, available at all Kiehl’s stores; $65-98 for the Heritage Collection Box Set
Kiehl’s iconic Ultra Facial Cream – both the original and oil-free moisturisers – don a Merlion design on the cap. And 100 per cent of the net proceeds from them will go into the restoration of Singapore’s National Monuments.
If you’re a long-time fan of the brand, consider the Heritage Collection Box Set, which comes with deluxe travel-sized items as well. Four different sets are available, so you’re sure to find one that suits your needs.
2. KOSE SAVE THE BLUE 30TH ANNIVERSARY SEKKISEI LOTION
$148 for 500ml, available at all Kose counters
Containing angelica root, licorice and coix seed extracts, Kose’s best-selling Sekkisei Lotion is said to help boost skin translucency.
Proceeds of up to $10,000 from the sale of this limited edition bottle will go into the Garden City Fund. They will be used in the National Parks Board’s Marine Eco-toxicity Biomonitoring Programme. Since May 2014, the programme has seen students participating in the active research of Singapore’s marine environment, including how coastal habitats can be better protected.
3. THE BODY SHOP SOFT HANDS KIND HEARTS HAND CREAM
$14.90, available at all The Body Shop stores
Specially launched for SG50, The Body Shop Soft Hands Kind Hearts hand cream will be on sale from now until August 19. This citrus-scented hand cream moisturises the skin with angelica root extract and olive oil.
The brand is hoping to raise S$10,000 from the sale of this hand cream, which will go into the Garden City Fund to contribute to the planting of 50 trees in Singapore.
