In the second week of our BURO Beauty Empties Vote and Win Giveaway, 14 lucky winners will bring home beauty products worth over RM9,000 in total. Find out what’s up for grabs below:
Treat your skin to a permanent vacation by reaching for Chuck’s Self Love For All Honey Cream. With 42 per cent royal jelly extract—the highest concentration in the world—niacinamide and Malaysian red palm oil, this facial moisturiser hydrates, soothes, repairs, and brightens.
Infused with nourishing ingredients including the patented dahlia variabilis flower extract, Dear Dahlia’s Petal Touch Plumping Lip Velour delivers instant volume and moisture-rich colour . Part of the Blooming Edition collection, this liquid lipstick is ultra-creamy yet petal-light on the lips. It imparts a mild cooling sensation, too—a benefit worth mentioning given our warm weather.
So gentle you can use it daily, Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial is nevertheless an efficient worker that exceeds expectations. Taking the form of a hyaluronic-acid-infused whipped clay, it’s also formulated with chemical exfoliants, watermelon enzymes, BHA and PHA. This combination clears pores of gunk and removes dead skin cells without drying out your skin.
These days, keeping your hands moisturised and clean is a challenge, no thanks to Covid-19. It’s why we’re happy to report that the Grown Alchemist Hydra-Gel Hand Sanitiser excels at both duties. Containing 70 per cent ethyl alcohol (extracted from cane sugars), hyaluronan and antioxidants, it sanitises instantly without leaving your palms the texture of sandpaper.
Shake up your daily skincare routine with Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Fresh Day Serum. This revolutionary serum retains its freshness and potency, so you reap the full benefits of its powerful antioxidant complex,essential nutrients and fruit enzymes. For best results, wear it under sunscreen and watch as your skin becomes more youthful and radiant, day by day.
The Frank Body Perky Sculpting Body Hydrator will perk you up in more ways than one. Like a good cup of latte, it’s silky smooth and caffeinated, giving you a—skin-firming and tightening—boost. There’s also antioxidant-rich acai, deeply hydrating shea butter, and longan seed extract to sculpt your body into a work of art. Smelling of sugar and spice (AKA vanilla frosting), it’s sure to keep you coming back for a daily boost.
The Inkey List
If you’re looking for an introduction to retinols, try The Inkey List’s Selfless by Hyram Retinol & Rainbow Algae Repair Serum. Made for acne or hyperpigmentation-prone skin, its gentle and slow-release retinol works together with nutrient-rich rainbow algae and tranexamic acid overnight. Use it to fade acne marks, smoothen, brighten, and diminish hyperpigmentation for a more even skin tone.
Go the distance with Benefit Cosmetics’ The Porefessional: Super Setter—a pro at helping makeup glide on smoothly and stay put for up to 16 hours, rain or shine. The microfine, water-based mist instantly blurs pores and softly scatters light, giving your face a smooth and soft-focus finish. It completes the job without any drops, spots or stickiness; a huge plus in our books!
We can only wish we’re as good as the Dr.Jart+Cicapair Re-cover SPF 40/PA++ CC Cream at multitasking. It covers blemishes, neutralises redness, provides SPF40 protection from UV rays, and shields your skin from environmental aggressors—even turning from green-to-beige to best match light-to-medium skin tones.
What’s your favourite colour? Upon using Tatcha’s Indigo Overnight Repair Serum, you may change your answer to indigo. A cushiony-textured serum and moisturiser in one, it visibly calms irritation, strengthens your skin’s barrier, hydrates, and balances your skin’s microbiome. By the time you wake up the next morning, you’ll have healthier and more radiant skin.
Sugergoop’s Glowscreen Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Primer SPF 40 PA+++ lets you glow, with or without makeup. Not only does it offer SPF 40 protection, this pearlescent sunscreen delivers hydration and a natural glow, so you look fresh-faced in the morning. But that’s not all: It’s also a makeup-gripping primer, should you opt not to go out bare-faced.
What do fashion shows and 16th century Hungarian royalty have in common? The Caudalie Beauty Elixir—inspired by a Hungarian queen’s youth elixir, and famously used backstage as a makeup setting spray. Packed with potent plant extracts and 100 per cent natural-origin ingredients, this aromatic and revitalising mist gives you an immediate radiance boost, tightens pores, and smoothes out fine lines as well as makeup creases.
The best solution to dark spots: Targeting it at the source, in addition to preventing further UV damage. The One By Kosé Melanoshot White D is the Japanese beauty brand’s number one brightening serum. It earned this distinction by combining four powerful ingredients, including kojic acid, that cut melanin production at the root. Not only will this shield against unwanted skin pigmentation, it also aids with the fading of existing dark spots.
As for maintaining a glowing, youthful and even skin tone: SPF is a must. Boost the results of your brightening serum by applying (and reapplying) Kosé’s Sekkisei Skincare UV Gel. The light, serum-based gel sinks in quickly without leaving a sticky sensation and stays water-resistant. It also has fermented Job’s tears to quench the thirst of dry or dehydrated skin. Another plus: The gel’s ability to absorb excess sebum and stop makeup from sliding off.
With a bewitching cocktail of ingredients, the Lush Magic Crystals body scrub will leave you and your skin feeling happy. If its bright purple colour doesn’t put a smile on your face, the mix of cooling peppermint, spearmint, rosemary and sage will ease tired muscles after a long day. Epsom and sea salts slough away rough, flaky skin whilst battling ingrown hairs, giving you a smoother shave.
Whether it’s because you’ve not stepped out of home for a while, or for other reasons such as a lack of sleep, there’s still a way to look rosy and sun-kissed instantly. Nudestix’s Nudies Matte All Over Face Color Blush & Bronze is a collection of matte contouring and bronzing sticks. With a soft colour balm on one side and a blending brush on the other end, it’ll add a soft pop of colour to your eyes, cheeks, and lips (take your pick) with a lightweight finish that won’t feather.
Encased in a very photogenic packaging inspired by vintage brooches, the Gucci Beauty Rouge de Beauté Brillant is a sheer lipstick with a creamy, satin texture. Its long-lasting, dual-action formula delivers up to 24 hours of moisture, ensuring your lips look alluringly full and plumped with a glossy pop of colour.
Time for a pop quiz: What’s an ingredient known as “white gold’? The answer is Himalayan crystal salt, as its high mineral content is able to nourish and replenish the skin. It’s a key ingredient of Tanamera’s Himalayan Rock Salt Scrub Jar, which also contains an aromatic and skin-smoothing blend of oils. This gives it the added benefit of improving blood circulation and reducing muscular aches, in between your spa appointments.
Fret not, as we’ve got just the thing for skin that’s showing premature signs of ageing. You’ll see a difference right away with the Sothys Detox Energie Energizing Radiance Ampoules. Small yet mighty, it works like a facial mask—but transparent—to visibly brighten skin and smoothen wrinkles. Enjoy protection against pollution thanks to organic elderberry and ginseng root extract, while detoxifying peptides improve your skin from the inside and out.
Made with the modern man in mind, Hugo Boss’ Boss Bottled EDT is a contemporary earthy and woody fragrance. Vibrant and fresh with a sensuous undertone, this is a scent that exudes effortless sophistication and pure joie de vivre—a timeless classic for the driven and ambitious male. That said, ladies: We reckon it’s also primed for success as a unisex fragrance.
