For this year’s It List of star beauty products, we puffed, patted, spritzed and massaged on hundreds of gels, creams, lotions and sprays.
Some were forgettable, others didn’t deliver what they promised and too many were just oh-kayyy.
But there were a select few that really stood out for their quality and amazing results – including these two from Aveda, our ELLE It List 2015 winners for Best New Multi-tasking Oil and Best New Hair Mask. Here’s why.
Best new multi-tasking oil
Aveda Beautifying Composition, $52
The hype: A concentrated blend of pure flower and plant essences that softens and conditions skin, scalp and hair.
Real deal: A multi-tasking wonder that worked well to remove mascara, moisturise cuticles and hair ends, and hydrate dry areas such as the neck.
When warmed in the palms and patted on, it’s easily absorbed and skin feels amazing. The mild scent is both relaxing and comforting. – ELLE Singapore ed-in-chief Sharon Lim.
Best new hair mask
Aveda Smooth Infusion Smoothing Masque, from $58
The hype: A deep-conditioning treatment that creates a barrier around the cuticle so that tresses stay soft and smooth.
Real deal: Love using it as a daily conditioner on unmanageable hair.
Hair is soft, smooth and sleek. Best bit? It doesn’t weigh hair down. - ELLE Singapore beauty director Vanessa Chia.
