We’re already in the final quarter of the year – can you believe it?
While we may be looking forward to making holiday plans, here’s something we shouldn’t wind down on yet: investing in quality beauty products so we can put our best face forward in the months ahead.
If you’re deciding what to get, here are our top list of products to add to cart in October.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait
The Caviar Science expert has done it again; we’re talking about La Prairie, which has spent the last 35 years studying caviar and its benefits to the skin.
The brand introduces the powerful and intensive Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait, designed to complement and elevate your Skin Caviar ritual.
As you dispense and apply the product, pay attention to the beads of the potent extract that delicately melts into the surrounding gel, transforming into a light, refreshing fluid that infuses skin with an immediate tensing sensation and a satin-smooth finish.
The results? Resculpted contours, regained volume, and reduced appearance of wrinkles.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait retails for RM4,050 and is available at Isetan KLCC, Isetan Gardens, and Parkson Pavilion.
Sunday Riley C.E.O Afterglow Brightening Vitamin C Gel Cream
You may already be obsessed with Sunday Riley’s C.E.O line of products, and now the brand has launched a new vitamin C gel moisturiser in the collection.
The new moisturiser offers instant luminosity and 24 hours of continuous hydration, all while evening skin tone and infusing your skin with a boost of antioxidants.
Look forward to brighter skin and improved skin texture in as quickly as a week.
Sunday Riley C.E.O Afterglow Brightening Vitamin C Gel Cream is available at Sephora.
Dr Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF30
Cult-favourite Re-cover, an all-in-one correcting cream by Dr Jart+ will now be exclusively relaunched in Sephora with a new name and available two sizes.
This green-to-beige hybrid colour corrector offers skincare effects, thanks to the Tiger grass complex (Centella) in its formula, which helps calm sensitised skin and corrects the appearance of redness.
On top of that, it also comes with sun protection to give you even more mileage with one product.
Dr Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment retails for RM205 at Sephora.
Biossance Squalane + Retinol Night Serum
A powerful yet gentle time-release retinol and retinal serum, this helps visibly improve fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and dark spots.
Its formula is further optimised by sugarcane-derived squalane – an ingredient that Biossance is an expert of – to enhance the results of retinol.
Biossance Squalane + Retinol Night Serum is available at Sephora.
Indie Lee Retinol Alternative Cream
Love the effects of retinol but hate the side effects that comes with it?
Consider Indie Lee’s new Retinol Alternative Cream, formulated with Natural Retinol Alternative Rambutan.
Like retinol, it helps with the improvement of elasticity, firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles.
It also contains Paracress Extract, Squalane, and Orange Milk Tree Extract to further enhance its anti-ageing benefits.
Indie Lee Retinol Alternative Cream will be available from 6 October at Sephora.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum
An addition to Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Collection, this is a vegan retinol serum with a clean formula that helps prevent the appearance of signs of ageing.
Using encapsulated technology to offer better stability, this glides on smoothly, leaving skin feeling hydrated and delivering anti-ageing benefits at the same time.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum will be available from 6 October at Sephora.
HOURGLASS Ambient Soft Glow Foundation
You may already be a fan of HOURGLASS’s blush and highlighter, now complete that ethereal base with its new foundation.
The HOURGLASS Ambient Soft Glow Foundation is a weightless liquid foundation that delivers 16-hour medium, buildable coverage with a natural, soft glow finish. You’ll love that its innovative formula is infused with blurring spheres and light-diffusing pigments to minimise the look of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, all while delivering a transfer-resistant wear that looks and feels effortless.
Use this with the HOURGLASS Ambient Soft Glow Foundation Brush, a cruelty-free brush made with vegan fiber technology that offers effortless blending and even application. Developed to enhance the performance of Ambient Soft Glow Foundation, this can also be used with any liquid and cream complexion products.

innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Skin-Fit Tone-Up Cream
For a tone-up cream that hydrates and offers a dewy finish, look no further than the new innisfree Skin-Fit Tone-Up Cream.
This has a light pink formula and high SPF of 50 to give you a one-step instant tone-up so you can achieve flawless foundation-free makeup.
Infused with Jeju cherry blossom leaf extraact and niacinamide, both of which are known for their brightening and hydrating effects, the lightweight product also contains betaine and green tea water to hydrate skin.

Aesop Ediesis Eau de Parfum
The fourth fragrance in Aesop’s Othertopias fragrance collection, the new Ediesis Eau de Parfum draws on the myth of Narcissus and Echo and is a gender-neutral scent designed for those seeking complex and unique aromas.
Packaged in an amber glass bottle and encased in a carton featuring artwork by Belfast-based painter Jack Coulter, this features rousing top notes of sparkling Petitgrain, spicy Black Pepper, and a subtle floral accord, leading to a resinous, spicy heart of Frankincense, Cumin and Cedar, before resting into a base of sumptuous Sandalwood, Cedar and earthy, green Vetiver.
