Start shopping now.

CLEO 12 Christmas gifts CNP CREMORLAB

It may seem like there are still 24 more days to go Christmas shopping, but that could be a day too late. After all, when it comes to the festive season, things can go out of stock faster than it takes you to go through the 10-step Korean skincare routine.

So you should reaaaally start shopping now. And if you’re looking to pamper your friends with trending Korean skincare products and makeup (and what girl can say “no” to good skin?), check out Korean skincare brands CNP Laboratory and CREMORLAB.

Any K-Beauty junkie worth her cushion compact knows about CNP Laboratory. Their products not only get rave reviews, but often fly off the shelves.

If your friends are the sort that mask every two days, spoil them with a few packs of Dr-Jet Mask Mela Toning, which rejuvenates and brightens skin, making it dewier. It contains the popular whitening ingredient glutathione, and is new in the market, so they’ll be excited to try it out.

If they have dry or sensitive skin, you can give them a nice treat with the Aqua Soothing Gel-Cream. It contains aloe vera extracts and two types of hyaluronic acids that lower the skin’s temperature by 4°C. It’s perfect for those who tend to get red and itchy skin.

Speaking of new, CREMORLAB just reached our shores, so gifting your pals with some of its products is sure to make them feel extra special (who doesn’t like to be one of the first?). The brand uses the nourishing thermal water of Geumjin, a region in Korea’s Gangwon-do Province, in all its products. And here’s the thing: the thermal water is harvested 1,100m below sea level and contains ultra-rare minerals including germanium and selenium.

For those who are big on K-Beauty, get them the Eau Thermale Serum Cushion, a multi-functional cushion packed with concentrated serum that also offers full coverage. It doesn’t just diminish fine lines, but can also erases blemishes.

Not sure what her skin tone is? Try the T.E.N. Skin Tone-Up CC SPF 50+ instead, which contains microcapsules of mineral pigments that react and match the skin’s colour tone for a natural look. It’s like magic!

Or whatever skin type your friends have, you can get them the T.E.N. Cremor Mineral Treatment Essence, which soothes skin, repairs damage, refines the skin texture and minimises the appearance of pores.
