We let you in on what’s been on our beauty radar in the past month!
Philosophy – Skin-protecting brightening UV+ Shield
Not happy with the basic sunscreen currently out there in the market? Not only does this skincare product shelter your skin from UVA and UVB rays, the lightweight formula can also suffice as your moisturiser.
Laneige – Two Tone Tint Lip Bar
This is the moisturising version of the cult Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar. If you’ve always had trouble perfecting that natural gradient ombre lip, the precise V-shape design and formula of the lip tint bar leaves a rosy tint on the inner parts of your lips without drying them out.
Lancôme – Blanc Expert Cushion 3.0 High Coverage
The latest cushion foundation from Lancome offers an even lighter application with the same high coverage! With promises of flawless, weightless and lasting coverage, this compact cushion foundation is a triple threat!
Fresh – Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask
Harnessing the benefits of citrusy fruits such as lemon, orange and clementine, this mask is jam-packed with nutrients and supplements for glowing and revitalized skin. Despite having the scent of marmalade, this mask is a breeze to apply and rinse off!
The Body Shop – Almond Milk & Honey Range: Soothing & Restoring Body Lotion
The first sensitive-dry bodycare range by The Body Shop is enriched with organic almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia. The Almond Milk & Honey soothes and restores any sensitivity or irritation to your skin.
Dior – Lip Sugar Scrub
This dual-function lip product exfoliates and moisturises your lips, providing a smooth canvas to layer on a lipstick or gloss. The lip sugar scrub is packed with with grains of sugar that melt into your lips, leaving your lips soft and supple. What sets this lip scrub apart from other scrubs is that you don’t have to wipe it off and this can be used to achieve a “no makeup” look.
Tory Burch – Love Relentlessly
What can be more romantic and sentimental than basing your perfume off your parents’ love story? The designer also named the perfume after her father’s signature used in his love notes! With a fun mix of fiery pink pepper and patchouli, this is a delight for your olfactory senses.
M.A.C – Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson
The annual Mac Campaign is back yet again and this time they’ve partnered with Taraji P. Henson to Jussie Smollett to help people living AIDS or HIV. If you weren’t already aware, since its launch in 1994, all proceeds from the Viva Glam campaigns has gone toward the cause.
Hugo Boss – The Scent For Her
Featuring hints of peaches and osmanthus, this modern perfume exudes an elegant sweetness. If floral and fruity fragrances are your thing and you like your fragrance to last all day, then this scent is the one to get!
Kiehl’s – Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
If you’re prone to acne scarring and pigmentation, this water-based serum corrects your problem areas with continued use. To maximise the efficacy and potency of the product, use this in conjunction with sunscreen over a period of time.
Make up store – High Tech Lighter in Mercury
Don’t be put off by the colour of this so-called highlighter. This swatches beautifully on the skin and enhances your complexion. Thanks to its silky soft formula that provides a sheen, this can function as your eyeshadow, blush or even lip gloss!
Albion – Embeage Excia Conectar Range
This luxurious and decadent Japanese skincare line for your skin uses our body’s natural bio-antioxidant called DHEA. This anti-ageing ingredient aids in diminishing oxidative damage and impedes maturing internally/on a genetic level. Add this range to your skincare regime for that added glow and luminosity.

Flew up to Bangkok a few weeks ago for Pomelo, and we filmed a super fun “What’s In My Bag – Travel Edition” video!
Just to name a few, my DSLR (Canon 5D Mark II), a mini notebook, lipstick, and my headphones (not featured, but the Bose QC25s are my go-to) are a definite must-have in my flight bag. I’ll be sharing a Behind-The-Scenes blog post in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, follow #AndreaxPomelo on Instagram to see all my Pomelo looks!
We put Dyson’s Supersonic Hairdryer to the test and create 3 simples hairstyles you can achieve on your own at home!
Look 1: Voluminous Straight Hair
No need to head to the salon for a blowout anymore! This look is perfect if you are going for an effortlessly sleek look.
What you will need: A large rounded hairbrush and the Dyson Supersonic Styling Concentrator attachment. The following technique will leave your hair feeling bouncy, voluminous, and silky smooth!
**Dyson Supersonic settings: Low heat and medium speed.
Look 2: Wavy Hair Using French Braid Technique
If you are looking for an easy, fun and playful look, this hairstyle is so easy to achieve! If you want more natural waves, create larger braids, or start braiding from mid-length onwards!
What you will need: Dyson Supersonic Smoothing Nozzle, 4 Hair Clips, and 4 Hair Ties.
Look 3: Natural Curls
This has to be my favourite look to achieve using the Dyson Supersonic. The romantic curls just elevates any appearance, and gives you an instant Korean-celebrity makeover, no? (:
What you will need: Mid-sized rounded brush, and the Dyson Supersonic Styling Concentrator and Diffuser.
And… there you have it! Three looks so easy to achieve in the comfort of your own vanity! What I really love about the Dyson Supersonic is how strong its speed settings are, the looks are so quick to achieve once you master the brush and braiding techniques. If you have any comments on your own Dyson Supersonic experience, leave a comment below!
I’ll be partnering with Dyson over the next few months to bring you more hairstyling tips, tricks and trends. Stay tuned to the blog for more!
