Last year, we teamed up with Lohasia to organise the Singapore Skincare Discussion, where we invited beauty industry experts to speak on natural/organic skincare and how toxic the beauty industry can be. Some of the highlights are available on YouTube, do watch them if you haven’t already. We received very positive feedback, and hopefully, we can organise another session soon.

Product review: Aroma Bar Rose Geranium & Ylang Ylang Rich Body Butter

Read More
