Drunk Elephant Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Spray, RM185

A new facial spray joins the Drunk Elephant herd this January for you to spritz on anytime your skin needs a refresher throughout the day. It can also be sprayed onto a clean, dry face before applying your usual daytime or night-time skincare product(s). With its blend of amino and fatty acids, electrolytes, and ceramides, Sweet Biome™ Fermented Sake Spray supports and replenishes a healthy microbiome while mimicking the components that keep your acid mantle (aka your skin barrier) strong, soothed, and balanced. Its cocktail of fermented sake extract, kombucha and hops supplies skin with nutrient-dense substances that restore, soothe and contribute to a balanced and healthy acid mantle and microbiome. Electrolytes—coconut water and sodium PCA—provide antioxidant protection and hydration while natural minerals zinc, copper, and calcium gluconate help reduce redness and promote collagen production. 

Soothe and protect

Face Republic Purity Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++,RM54.90 for 50ml

A special collaboration with Korean model, influencer and TikTok sensation Jeon Changha, this sunscreen promises to protect your skin from strong sunlight while keeping it fresh and hydrated. Plus, it is super lightweight, feels fresh on the skin and packed with mild yet potent ingredients, which makes it suitable even for sensitive skin. What’s more, Purity Sun Essence utilises non-nano technology, which is a step larger than nano, avoiding the risks of absorbing UV-blocking ingredients into the skin. It also improves the application of sunscreen by using nano-ised particles while reducing white cast.

Find it on Face Republic’s official stores on Lazada and Shopee.
