beauty news june 2024 malaysia

Supergoop! has just added two stellar new products to its cult-favourite Unseen lineup—the Mineral Unseen Sunscreen and the Unseen Sunscreen Stick. We joined the brand in Singapore to celebrate the launch over lunch at Fico, where the brand’s Senior Vice President, Natalia Obolensky, caught us up on the new products. In attendance were Singaporean and Thai talents, as well as our local KOLs Bay Doucet, Arisa Soraya, Khesyinii, Dee Alimin and Nicole Siang Wei.

The all-new Mineral Unseen Sunscreen is a mineral SPF that shares the same velvety texture of the OG Unseen Sunscreen, but with a mineral formulation that is best suited for sensitive skin. The Unseen Stick is your new reapplication BFF, formulated to give you the velvety, matte finish you love from Unseen on the go.

The Unseen Sunscreen Range is available to shop here.

aesop women's library malaysia

Following last year’s success, Aesop is set for the takeover of its TRX and IOI City Mall storefronts for the Women’s Library 2.0. For three days, the shelves of the two signature stores will be cleared to make way for the works of Malaysian women authors. Guided by Malaysia’s reading culture, this year’s Women’s Library draws inspiration from tales of past, present and future, penned by both significant and emerging female literary voices and allies.

Stop by the ephemeral library this weekend and you’ll be able to take home one complimentary book of your choice—no purchase required. As for the titles that are up for grabs? To support local independent publishers and booksellers, Aesop has purchased over 6,000 volumes for the library. There are more than 20 titles from six collaborating local publishing houses— Lit Books, Clarity Publishing, Cite Book Garden, Gerak Budaya Kuala Lumpur, Penwings Publishing, and Buku Fixi—to choose from, each sprawling in genre and spirit, ranging from short stories to novels and poetry.

Plus, the beauty house has partnered with the literary podcast Two Book Nerds Talk as well as Human Edition to shine a spotlight on local projects, open up discussion on this year’s book selection and also invite the authors to talk about their journey into writing throughout the course of three episodes.

The Aesop Women’s Library 2.0 opens at Aesop at The Exchange at TRX and Aesop at IOI City Mall from 14th-16th June  2024. Find the details on the podcast here.

Balinese beauty brand Sensatia Botanicals lands in Malaysia

First founded in the small fishing village of Jasri, Karangasem, Bali in 2000, Sensatia Botanicals began as an independent beauty business working to create great skincare from natural, pure ingredients. Now, 24 years on, the brand has made its first foray into the Malaysian market, opening the doors to its first exclusive boutique on our shores at The Exchange TRX. The brand puts nature at the heart of all of its products, but it also extends its eco-philosophy into its operations. From tackling landfill waste by using post-consumer recycled plastic (PCRP) in its packaging to creating biodegradable formulas that won’t pollute our waterways, it’s a worthy option for those looking to consume more ethically.

Find Sensatia Botanicals at L1.28 in The Exchange TRX.
