Our salaries are in and we’re raring to go – for some retail therapy, of course. If you’re planning to add new beauty products to your shopping list, here are the newest launches in the market that we have our eyes on.
Fenty Skin Fat Water Hydrating Milky Toner Essence
After the successful launch of Fat Water, a pore-refining toner-serum, during its debut, Fenty Skin launches a new toner-essence that has a thick milky texture, packed with ingredients to help plump skin with hydration and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.
Great for parched skin, this instantly hydrates, nourishes, refreshes, soothes and helps skin recover from stress. The alcohol-free formula also evens out skin tone and reduces the appearance of pores.
You’ll also love its subtle and fresh scent that’s inspired by tropical fruits and flowers.
Fenty Skin Fat Water Hydrating Milky Toner Essence retails for RM145 and is available at Sephora.
Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Gel
Laneige has added two new cleansing products to their Water Bank range.
The oil cleanser contains mint leaf extract and provides deep pore cleansing and sebum control. It removes waterproof makeup and impurities without leaving behind a greasy or sticky feeling so that skin feels refreshed after cleansing.
It also contains Blue Hyaluronic Acid and Centella Asiatica extract to moisturise and soothe skin so it feels soft and moist after each cleanse.
The gel cleanser, on the other hand, is a pH-balanced product formulated for dry and sensitive skin. It protects skin’s barrier after cleansing, thanks to the inclusion of three types of amino acids and three amino acid surfactants that lift off skin impurities and dead skin without stripping skin’s natural moisture.
Olay x FRIENDS Limited Edition Collection
Olay has collaborated with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to launch a limited edition product collection inspired by beloved TV series FRIENDS.
In this collection, Olay’s signature Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Luminous Light Perfecting Serum have been emblazoned with illustrated motifs designed to evoke memorable scenes from the show, including the iconic orange couch in Central Perk and the yellow frame that hangs on Monica and Rachel’s apartment door.
For the uninitiated, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is a popular face moisturiser that’s infused with vitamin B3, amino-peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants to instantly hydrate skin and improve skin elasticity. It also helps to visibly diminishes wrinkles and fine lines while delivering plumping hydration 10 layers deep into the skin’s surface.
Olay Luminous Light Perfecting Serum, on the other hand, is formulated with Pearl-Optics Technology to brighten skin tone and reduce the appearance of spots, while instantly hydrating skin. It is also lightly scented with the aroma of jasmine and rose petals, for a sensorial experience.

Skin- and self-care brand GLOWGEAR is known for their beauty tools and products that are multifunctional. After its foray into Singapore earlier this year, the brand continues its expansion into Southeast Asia and is now available in Malaysia through Sephora.
One of its top beauty tool to check out is its GLOWDROP 4-in-1 Facial Device. Besides cleansing, this device also features a NASA-inspired red and blue LED light facial, a warming plate, and a built-in massage tip; together, these features help leave skin brighter, combat breakouts, smooth fine lines, boost collagen production, and aids in the absorption of serums and moisturisers.
If you’re looking for a simpler tool, go for the GLOWQUARTZ Face Roller. This roller is designed to mimic the hands of a facial therapist to help sculpt and contour cheekbones, lift your jawline, and massage kneads and massages your face to ease tension. The tool also helps reduce puffiness by draining lymphatic fluid and increase blood circulation around your face.
