Time flies, it’s already August, which means its National Day! 9th August 2017 marks Singapore’s 52nd birthday, and the National Day is definitely one of my favourite days of the year. Other than getting a day off, there’s nothing more patriotic than seeing our nation come together as one to celebrate the independence of Singapore.
In tune with National Day, we asked members of the VIIMART community to tell us their favourite beauty products. (But that’s not all — read till the end for a bonus!) When it comes down to which products are actually worth our coin, our fellow locals sure know it all! Here are the local favourites: 1. BURT’S BEES Beeswax Lip Balm
“This lip balm has been one of my classics so far. The price point is just like any other lip balm, and the formula is great. Makes my lip well moisturized.” — Cali Goh
The original. The best. And still the world’s favourite (and us Singaporeans too!). Playing in purses and pockets since 1991, this must-have, 100% natural lip conditioner contains impressive amounts of Coconut, Beeswax and Sunflower Oil to have you gliding into lustrous lip heaven. A final hint of Peppermint Oil provides that one-of-a-kind refreshing tingle. Rain or shine, protect your precious pout with this lip reviver that guarantees smooth, supple lips everyone will be buzzing about.

2. CRABTREE & EVELYN Rosewater Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy
“I really like this hand cream because it makes my skin feel so comfortable. I sometimes use it at the back of my elbows and it has helped with the roughness. This has become an essential.” — Elisa Tan
The rose is the symbol of love for good reason. Timeless, alluring and majestic, its heady scent and skin-beautifying properties have been celebrated for centuries. Lock in lashings of moisture with this award-winning hand therapy! Infused with Macadamia Nut Oil, Shea Butter and Rosa Centifolia, this intensive cream nourishes skin so it’s noticeably smoother after each luxurious application.

“As the product is really huge, I tried using it as a toner and my skin really changed. The price is so worth if if you think about it as a toner, and my skin stopped getting breakouts and such.” — Cherilyn Goh
Some think its holy water, some are just skeptical. While it is essentially “water-in-a-can”, this one-of-a-kind product is infused with trace elements and silicates to ensure gentleness and tolerance, creating a unique double signature that does not exist anywhere else in the world. Backed by over hundreds of clinical studies, it soothes redness and calms all sorts of skin troubles. With each spray, the water released is pure and clear — as if you were drawing it directly from the spring (not the kitchen tap).

“I’m on my second bottle now, and my skin has changed for the better. My dark spots are lesser, and my pores look smaller as well. This product worked really well for my skin, I really loved it.” — Jocelyn Chan
SK-II has gradually invaded the dressing rooms of celebrities and women across the globe, and is now a huge Singaporean favourite. This signature product, the much-loved and most awarded bestseller has over 90% Pitera™ to visibly transform skin’s 5 dimensions in just 14 days: spots are less visible, appearance of wrinkles is reduced, skin texture is more refined, firmness is improved, and radiance is beautifully elevated. Its irreplaceable formula also gently exfoliates for breathtakingly, crystal clear skin.

“For some reason my skin is really dry recently. I use this thrice a week and after a month, I get compliments on my improved complexion!” — Hwee Min
Let’s face it — majority of us are not clocking enough sleep, and this can really take a toll on our skin. The daily environment is not helping either: when skin gets exposed to pollution and UV rays on a daily basis, it tends to become rough, dull and damaged. Thankfully, this overnight, revitalizing gel-mask absorbs instantly while you sleep to deeply hydrate skin, as if you have had a good night’s sleep for 8 hours! Rather than looking like a zombie, this sleeping mask gives skin a lively, well-rested appearance the next morning.
