We know we’re not the only ones with a long beauty shopping list when we make a trip to South Korea. Like the hordes of other local beauty buffs, we’re always on the hunt for products that we can’t get in Singapore to add to our must-try list.
But the tables have turned. There’s a new South Korean beauty store in town that stocks Singapore-exclusive products that aren’t available anywhere else in the world – yes, not even in Korea.
Where are these goodies at? The newly relocated Laneige flagship boutique at #B3-53 Ion Orchard. The store has undergone a facelift to unveil a new look with an interactive space. And with its new concept space comes three Singapore exclusive products:
Laneige Water Science Mist, $28 each
One product beauty staffers always have on their desk: Facial mist. Because it instantly hydrates and refreshes tired skin, any time of the day. And depending on the formula, it can soothe sensitive skin, brighten it and even help with anti-ageing. There are seven to choose from here, and each contains a different skin-loving brand-exclusive ingredient.
Laneige Sleeping Ball, from $2 to $5
Laneige’s popular sleeping masks now come in these single-use pods. They’re great for travelling and gifting, and are also ideal for those who want to try new formulas. And they’ve got you covered from head to toe. Besides caring for your face with moisturising, brightening and firming packs, there are also formulas to restore moisture to your hands and feet.
Laneige Lip Card, $10 for a pack of 4
You’ve probably seen this in period dramas – ladies blotting their lips on a red piece of paper to give colour to their pout. The technique is the same, but Laneige has upped the game with these Lip Cards. Available in 20 shades, the Lip Cards hold highly pigmented and moisturising formulas. They’re also slim and will fit even in wallets. Simply tear to open, fold into half and blot your lips to apply. No mirror needed.
