Belif’s new Prime Infusion

If your skin is feeling the effects of all that festive overindulgence, Korean beauty brand belif’s new Prime Infusion series might be just the shot of revitalisation you’re after. All six products in the line – including a toner, repair cream and snazzy three-step “ampoule programme” (SO K-beauty!) – are powered by mountain arnica, a medicinal herb that has long been recognised for its potent skin repair and regeneration properties. This stuff only grows on alpine grasslands at 2,000 metres or above, and is picked by hand… it always feels good knowing some solid graft has gone behind your beauty regime, right? As with all belif products, the Prime Infusion line is free from synthetic preservatives, dyes, fragrances, mineral oil and ingredients of animal origin.

Princes range from $320-910. Available at counters citywide including FACESSS, L4 Times Square, 1 Matheson St., Causeway Bay, 2110 0131. See all locations at

Camel Milk – the next beauty must-have?

Body_Butter-1 copy

Known as “white gold” thanks to its in-built moisturising, nourishing and soothing properties, camel milk is packed with natural proteins, antioxidants, vitamins and anti-bacterial agents that are supposed to work wonders for the skin – and now we can all get our hooves on the stuff thanks to Camel Milk Co.’s new Hong Kong online store. This Australian brand’s range of all-natural, ultra-hydrating soaps, lip balms, hand wash and body butter are paraben-, SLS-, petrochemical- and phosphate-free; it’s all ethically sourced and not tested on animals, either. The whole range is also hypoallergenic, making it a great choice for sensitive skin.

Prices range from $60-220; free shipping in Hong Kong. Available online at
