Besides the usual luxuries of a nice bathtub, soft fluffy sheets and impeccable service, Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong offers a quaint experience that will make for a memorable stay – be it with your girlfriends or your bae. The rooms in this boutique hotel are modelled after Peranakan homes, and take inspiration from the Katong neighbourhood, resulting in some very Instagrammable corners. Remember to pack your bikini for a dip in the rooftop infinity pool!
Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong is at 86 East Coast Road, Katong Square. For more information and bookings, visit www.hotelindigo.com.
Want to experience an onsen without jetting off to Japan? You can, with Ikeda Spa. Available this season only, the Pure Autumn Glow Treatment starts with a Rice Bran Whitening Scrub that sloughs away dead skin cells and promotes skin regeneration. Then, enjoy a soak in the Sake Bath, which purportedly detoxifies and improves blood circulation. The session ends with an Inyou Relaxation/Amma Deep Tissue Massage, which irons out the kinks in your muscles. It’s so relaxing that you might fall asleep mid-sesh!
The Pure Autumn Glow Treatment costs $168+ and is exclusively available at Ikeda Spa, Bukit Timah. Promotion available till October 31, 2016.
For eyes that pop, try LANEIGE’s Creamy Crystal Eyeliner. The formula has an ultra-soft pearl texture, so it glides naturally onto your lids without any tugging. It’s also smudgeproof and waterproof, so you can take your look from day to night without fuss. Hot tip: use the gold beige shade on your waterline to make your eyes appear bigger, or blend it under your eyes to conceal dark circles.
LANEIGE Creamy Crystal Eyeliner is available at all LANEIGE counters and boutiques. Available in black, brown, cinnamon brown and gold beige.
For those who prefer their sneakers to be monochrome, you’re gonna love Skechers D’LITES 2, which come in two variations: lace-up and velcro strap. Plus, you get to own couple shoes with K-pop boy band EXO, so who’s complaining?
The shoes retail for $129 at all Skechers concept stores. They’ll come in sizes 5 to 11.
Fans of the Water Bank series from LANEIGE, here’s something to get excited about. The K-Beauty brand is releasing a new addition to its signature Water Bank series — LANEIGE Water Bank Creamist. This cream-based facial mist provides a boost of hydration just like a moisturising cream would, giving your skin a natural glow. It contains ultra-moisturising ingredients like Hydro Ion Mineral Water and Mini-Hyaluronic Acid, and features a cream liquid technology that micro-emulsifies the cream. Reach for this mist whenever your skin is feeling a little dry!
LANEIGE Water Bank Creamist is available from the end of September 2016 at all LANEIGE counters and boutiques.
