Here’s Where We’re Beauty Shopping Now

Net-A-Porter has answered our prayers for products we couldn’t get in Singapore

Glossier Balm Dotcom, set of three, USD36.

Glossier Balm Dotcom, set of three, USD36.

Glossier’s director of product development used to work at M.A.C and the brand’s products really work (we’ve been depending on friends visiting New York for our fix of its Moisturiser Primer and Tint), plus they don’t break the bank. Note that only the latest Balm Dotcom, a multi-purpose formula that can be used as a primer or highlighter, is currently being offered on Net-A-Porter. But this could be the start of exciting things to come...like the whole range being stocked soon, hopefully?

Purely Perfect Cleansing Crème Shampoo, USD40.

Purely Perfect Cleansing Crème Shampoo, USD40.

We’re sure you’ve read the rave reviews for this online, and now you can finally get it delivered to your doorstep. The brand is the brainchild of Michael Gordon, founder and ex-president of haircare brand Bumble & Bumble, which explains its overall fabulousness. This shampoo isn’t like anything we’ve tried — it’s a cream that doesn’t lather or foam up, but it still leaves hair silky smooth even without a conditioner. Just takes some getting used to.

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt, USD58.06.

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt, USD58.06.

As with your face, your scalp needs a deep cleanse regularly too, and a scrub is a good way to target scalp issues. This grainy sea-salt paste from famed Paris-based colonist Christophe Robin is gentle, but intensively cleanses and rebalances sensitive or oily scalps. That “resets”the hair by removing all product build-up. You’ll need a nourishing hair mask after, but your hair and scalp will feel oh-so-clean.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash, USD71.
12 Sep 2015

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash, USD71.

We’ve been dying to try items from makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s line, and now we can. Especially this formula that can be worn under or over foundation, or on its own, for luminous and glowing skin. Its Soft Focus effect reflects light, blurring imperfections and fine lines.

Nurse Jamie Beauty Bear Age Delay Pillow, USD72.

Nurse Jamie Beauty Bear Age Delay Pillow, USD72.

This uniquely shaped pillow doesn’t just support your neck and lumbar muscles so you get a better night’s rest. It also has a satin cover that helps prevent skin creases and wrinkles caused by sleep. On top of that, the material isn’t as absorbent as cotton, which allows your skin to retain its natural moisture and oils.

We know all too well the frustration of hearing about an amazing beauty product, only to realise it’s not available in Singapore. That’s why we’ve fallen in love with Net-A-Porter’s Beauty section, which stocks an extensive range of both big brands and cult favourites, many of which are impossible or hard to find here. Here are five such treats to score on.
