A while back I was invited for an Alcina’s bloggers event and brought home a goodie bag for review. For those who haven’t heard of them, it’s because they’re a German brand that’s new to Singapore market and recently just launched on Luxola.com. It was a great time at the event having coffee and treats while hearing from the Alcina R&D team including their makeup artist. I also got to try out their skincare and makeup as I had the pleasure to be the model for the demo. 🙂 I really enjoy their skincare which is very hydrating and has a fresh botanical scent. And I super love their moisturizer Hyaluron 2.0 which includes hyaluronic acid. After using the Hyaluron 2.0 moisturizer for a week, my skin was very well hydrated and a lot of my blemishes cleared up and I felt that my skin became better with this moisturizer, so I highly recommend it! You can get it on Luxola at $74.95 here. Their makeup also wears very well on my skin and holds up well even in the humid weather. Expect a more matt finishing with their foundation an makeup and their Sun Kiss Powder is exactly that – gives you that Sun Kiss look! You can get it at $49.95 here.
Club Street Social cafe at 5 Gemmil Lane. Beautiful array of Alcina cosmetics!Variations of powders, blushers & sun kissed powder.
Eyeshadows in earth colours.Richly pigmented lipsticks from natural to bold colours, moisturizing with a shiny finishing.
Had the chance to try on this eye and lip cream before the lipstick and it’s super good. I highly recommend it for people with dry skin and looking for a lip moisturizer that’s effective without being overly oily.
Another product highlight is the Alcina Skin Clarifying Fluid that promises to clear blemishes and and yield a clear and healthy skin complexion with prolonged use. To be used after cleansing face and before makeup. I would recommend this over the Hyaluron 2.0 as a moisturizer for blemish skin and after the blemishes clear up, then change to the Hyaluron 2.0.
