Lip service

Give your lips a treat with the Pure Color Envy Lip Care collection by Estée Lauder. These are treatments that you can wear during the day or night. At night time, there is the Nighttime Rescue Lip Oil Serum that moisturises dry lips with its collagen infused spheres, Hyaluronic acid and flower oils. All you need to do is apply on clean bare lips and let it work while you sleep. For those who want a bit of a pout, try the Lip Volumizer that promises to give you an enviable volume (use it daily on its own or under a colour lipstick).

Step up your exercise regime

Now more than ever, we should all try to stay as healthy as possible to keep colds at bay. Whatever exercise you do, the G-Shock GBD-H1000 will be your partner as it can measure optimal heart rate by detecting the blood flow under the skin. It also measures your step count and distance travelled. For those who love the outdoors there is also a compass function to make sure you always find your way home. The watch also comes with Bluetooth functionality and smartphone app, so the user can manage the recorded data such as calories burned and distance travelled. 

All things Korean

Made in the Gangwon province — said to be the cleanest region in Korea — the latest products include the Peony Bright Deep Cleansing foam with high absorption to brighten and clear skin and the Peony Bright Clearing Toner, which is a refreshing water-type toner that removes leftover residue and skin impurities after cleansing to leave skin clean and clear.

It’s a jungle out there

This year, Versace has revived the print and it has gone viral (in a good way) as jungle fever has spread to its ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear collection.
