Meeth Skin Repair Night Cream
It was only the previous month when we celebrated luxury Japanese skincare Meeth arriving in Malaysia. This month, they’re launching their Skin Repair Night Cream, which they have developed after extensive research and development.
The cream is designed to be richer and more hydrating than regular daytime moisturisers and encourage your skin to repair itself from deep within, all while you sleep. Not only that, but it also protects your skin from blue light and UV rays.
We recently had the chance to experience the Meeth Skin Repair Night Cream for ourselves. Our first impressions were that the product was scentless and felt mild on the skin.
We were also impressed by the packaging, as it came with an inner lid to separate the product and came with a small spatula, allowing for more hygienic scooping.
The Meeth Skin Repair Night Cream retails for RM410 on their official website.
Philosophy Hope In A Jar Smooth-Glow Multi-Tasking Moisturiser
Fans of Philosophy’s products are going to love their new, reformulated Hope In A Jar, which is now totally cleaner and greener so it’s not only good for the environment but even better for your skin.

Ruruberry NPAA Serum & Ruruberry Niacinamide Essence
Ruruberry’s NPAA Serum is designed to treat an array of skin concerns including redness, hyperpigmentation, active blemishes, and wear and tear from ageing and environmental factors.
This is thanks to 5% niacinamide, potassium azeloyl diglycinate, n-acetyl glucosamine, and 1% alpha-arbutin. If using this product during the day, it is recommended to use an SPF30 or greater sunscreen.
We’re excited about their Niacinamide Essence, which uses 3% niacinamide, 2% sodium PCA, alpha-glucan oligosaccharide, and hydroxyacetophenone.
What it does is that it hydrates and illuminates for reduced blemishes and improved skin elasticity while prepping to correct dullness and excess shine.
