This year hasn’t been great for many of us, and the yearend celebrations would probably be slightly different. Amid the pandemic, Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2021 organisers said on Thursday (Nov 5) that there will be no fireworks display at Marina Bay on New Year’s Eve. Oh well, it’s indeed better to be safe than sorry with the virus still lurking around.
But don’t be disheartened! We read that fireworks will still be available at various heartland locations islandwide. More details to come as we take a step closer to December. And talking about the yearend, let’s not forget to keep up with the spirit of giving. With everyone tightening their belts this year, we’ve put together five skincare gift sets under S$50 for your consideration.
Get them as a present for yourself or your loved ones!
We will roll with the most affordable option, Clinique Merry Moisture at just S$19. The set consists of a Moisture Surge™ 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator (1oz/30ml) and a Chubby Stick™ Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Mega Melon (0.04oz/1.2g). The hydrator contains hyaluronic acid and aloe water to give skin the power to rehydrate itself. At the same time, the lip balm nourishes lips with vitamin E, mango, and shea butter.
Next up on our list, we have the Winter Glow Skin Set Holiday Edition (70ml) from Innisfree. This skincare trio comprises of the Jeju Green Tea and Jeju Orchid essentials you need for moisturised glowing skin. The packaging is a collaboration with Steven Harrington, an LA-based artist and designer known for his cheerful and contemporary, psychedelic pop-aesthetics. Let Harrington’s signature quirky illustrations delight the festivities!
With the same budget at S$26, you can also consider the Wild Wishes Tropical Skincare Set (Limited Edition) by Sephora. The selection of masks boasting a variety of different ingredients, textures, and benefits come in a limited-edition tropical design pouch. To be exact, you will get five types of masks, including a mud mask, grape face mask, pineapple nose mask, green clay mask, and an açaï smoothie mask.
Similar to our previous listing, Mask Merry Skincare Set by Origins has five must-have masks. Original Skin™ gently exfoliates and refines pores while the Drink Up™ Overnight infuses skin with 72-hour hydration. The set also includes Dr Andrew Weil for Origins™ Mega-Mushroom to soothe the look of visible redness. Lastly, the Clear Improvement™ Active Charcoal Mask detoxifies, and Charcoal Honey gently purifies pores and nourishes.
To round up our list of skincare gift sets under S$50, we have the Laneige Mini Sleeping Mask Set at S$46. The collection includes the well-known Water Sleeping Mask (25ml), Lavender Water Sleeping Mask (25ml), and Cica Sleeping Mask (25ml). The overnight masks will restore your skin’s liveliness, giving you a well-rested appearance the next morning. Bring either one on your staycations or your upcoming yearend trip to Hong Kong!
May your upcoming Merry Christmas be filled with lots of love and laughter.
