By now, most of you must have met our new minis - the tiny but mighty Discovery Duo! To be honest, this has been completely overdue. I can't even count the number of times we've been asked to launch trial sized versions of our cleanser and moisturiser.
When we first started, we didn't think we needed to launch pocket-sized versions of our products. We were happily stocked at several retail spaces which offered testers. But when Covid-19 hit, stores were no longer allowed to share testers freely. Covid-19 also brought along an entirely new phenomenon: maskne. I started seeing more and more cases of maskne, and even experienced it myself. The worst part about maskne is that very often, it is recurring. Like you, I went into a cycle of treating, healing, and having it reoccur after a week of calm. It was frustrating. I had to recalibrate my routines to emphasis hydration, lightness and prevention.
It is my belief that skincare should serve you and that if a product does not serve you, you should throw it away. A good skincare product should fit your lifestyle. Most importantly, no formula should ever rest on its laurels. Skincare must evolve with the times. With that in mind, my team and I felt that it was time to improve two of our most beloved formulas: Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops and Superfood Saviour Creme.
Superfood Saviour Creme
With Superfood Saviour Creme, we wanted our new formula to apply comfortably and have a mild cooling effect. Long hours of mask wearing often leads to chafing - which can be reduced by well-moisturised skin. We also increased hydration levels, allowing your skin to stay hydrated for longer.
Here's what you can expect with our new and improved Superfood Saviour Creme:
- Lighter, gel-like texture for comfortable application
- Mild cooling effect to calm skin
- Increased hydration levels
- Non-clogging to pores
Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops
With Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops, we focused on improving hydration levels and gentleness. Brightening ingredients often have the potential to cause dryness, so care must always be taken to ensure that these ingredients are counter-balanced with soothing ingredients like Honey, Matcha and Glycerin. Besides increasing hydration and gentleness with amino acids, natural lime extracts have also been added to the formula to provide a refreshing twist.
Here's what you can expect with our new and improved Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops:
- Increased hydration levels
- Gentle amino acid based cleansing system
- Better balanced pH levels
- Refreshing and natural lime scent
The Discovery Duo
With the Discovery Duo, you can now whip out your favourite products anytime - whether you're at the gym or on staycation. These pocket-sizes are ideal for:
- Skincare newbies
- For fans looking to try our new & improved formulas
- For those leading active lifestyles
- For those with sensitive skin and recurring maskne
- For those looking to reset their skincare routine
How It Can Help Maskne
Maskne can emerge from direct and indirect use of masks. Friction and chafing against the skin causes irritation and inflammation that promotes breakouts. This is especially so if your acne is concentrated along the mask line, or at your chin area. Indirectly, masks also create a hot and humid environment that traps oil, sweat and bacteria, clogging the pores and causing the distinct acne patterns known as maskne.
Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops contains natural superfoods like Honey and Uji Matcha which help to strengthen the skin barrier and soothe the surface of skin. This pH-balanced cleanser is also enhanced with Betaine, an amino acid that controls cell-water balance and acts as a gentle and soothing hydrator to reduce skin sensitivity and inflammation. You can now whisk away skin impurities and recharge your day with a cleanser that brightens and evens skin - while preventing recurring maskne.
Superfood Saviour Creme is a non-comedogenic wonder cream that replenishes your complexion with steady hydration throughout the day. Light enough to be worn under masks yet hydrating enough for night time usage, it is also blended with a trinity of skin-rescuing ingredients - Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid and CoQ10 that cocoon your skin in moisture. This smooth surface helps to prevent chafing and irritation, while ensuring that skin stays supple and replenished. With this light and cooling formula, you no longer have to worry about the hot and humid environment under your masks clogging your pores!
