Discover FILORGA’s Urban Suncare Solution For Every Day Skin Protection

Discover FILORGA’s High Protection Suncare Solution

Leveraging its extensive medical expertise, FILORGA has now created *UV-DEFENCE*: an urban sun care to combine generalised anti-ageing protection with a filtering system.
UV-DEFENCE ensures a very high level of protection for all skin types, a daily skincare to fight against the visible signs of ageing.

It includes powerful active agents that combat the harmful effects of UV radiation:

A powerful combination of sun filters paired with antioxidant vitamin E to protect the skin against UV light and free radicals.

A hop extract regulates melanin synthesis to fight against photo-induced dark spots.

A brown algae extract combined with hyaluronic acid to instantly regenerate skin tissues and reduce the signs of ageing.

When applied daily or during sun exposure, the easy-to-apply melt-in texture of this product leaves a non-sticky, non-oily finish on the skin. Before exposure, apply a sufficient dose to carefully cover the exposed area. Reducing the amount applied will reduce the level of protection. Repeat application frequently, especially after swimming, in case of perspiration and after toweling off. Also ideal to protect sensitized skin after aesthetic procedures on unbroken skin.

Beauty test drive: Noesa Super Whitening and Glamour serums

In a market saturated with multi-step routines and complicated products, beauty editor-approved Noesa stays at the forefront of skin-illuminating technology with an acclaimed duo of Super Whitening and Glamour serums from its Highness Category.
A healthy lifestyle can only do so much to help one achieve a good complexion from the inside out. For optimal skin health, a holistic approach that puts cellular care at the fore is the answer to slowing down the effects of ageing.
The crux of German luxury brand Noesa and its repertoire of complex, science-driven formulations, is biological energy or biophotons. Noesa’s founder, Gerd Gerken, futurologist and former consultant to German ex-chancellor Helmut Kohl, pioneered “mind design” rituals that merged brain research, holistic healing and system theory. His therapies manifested luminous skin in his clients, and after 10 years of research with three Nobel laureates to reproduce this effect in skincare, Noesa was created.
According to Noesa, light is energy and it is found in living things such as plants. The brand uses a proprietary method of distillation to extract these biophotons from wild and precious plants harvested in the Southern French Alps. Fused to form alchemetics, they integrate the plants’ characteristics to form energy patterns in skin. These are delivered deep into skin through a carrier called danadem, to stimulate cell renewal and repair.
The brand offers four ranges – Basic Line, The Primacy Collection, Special Treatment and The Highness Category – that run the gamut from cleansers and peeling lotions to skin boosters. The formulations are housed in sleek silver tubes to cater to all ages and genders.
A power duo

While everyone has their unique skin woes, The Highness Category is capable of addressing various complexion concerns with power-packed serums that each feature alchemetics.
Perpetual dullness is my constant skin issue and living in Singapore’s sunny climes also means a constant battle with hyperpigmentation. To return radiance to my dull skin, I am recommended the Super Whitening Intense Concentrate and Glamour Hormone Upgrade Cure for day and night use respectively.
For the morning skincare routine, the Super Whitening Intense Concentrate prepares your skin for the day with its stable vitamin C derivatives that lighten dark spots caused by cumulative sun exposure and acne scars. These, combined with a blend of alchemetics and danadem, block the production of melanin, which is the pigment that produces colour, to even out skin tone in the long run.
For night routines, the Glamour Hormone Upgrade Cure is a sleeping serum that feeds resting cells energy. The radiance-enhancing elixir doesn’t just renew and re-energise cells, but also stabilises your hormonal system. It returns skin to its healthiest state through the regulation of hormones to prevent flare-ups and improving cortisol levels for better moods.
To use the Super Whitening Intense Concentrate, apply two to three pumps every morning after cleansing. Pat the serum gently on your face and neck until it dries. Follow with sunscreen to maintain your newfound radiance.
For the Glamour Hormone Upgrade Cure, three to five pumps are recommended, but I stick to three for my oily skin. After cleansing and toning, massage onto your face and neck. Amplify the benefits with a light application of the Noesa Anti Aging Concentrate, Super Eye and Anti Wrinkle Repair Mask.

The Super Whitening Intense Concentrate is perfect for mornings, as it has a watery gel-like consistency that feels weightless on skin.The Glamour Hormone Upgrade Cure, on the other hand, has a thicker texture akin to that of a moisturiser. Both sink quickly into your pores, guaranteeing quick formula penetration.
Now that I’m in my 30s, my skin requires high maintenance to prevent it from being dull and sallow. While regular exfoliation is a mainstay in my routine, the results are often inconsistent. Hiking, my new weekend hobby, has also caused me to turn a few shades darker, despite liberal use of sunscreen.
While I did not have expectations of my tan skin lightening over time, I witnessed a week-by-week brightening effect on my skin that was noticeable in daylight and in photographs. After a month’s usage of both serums, my skin is almost back to its original shade. My complexion is glowing and smooth, and I no longer have to rely on my exfoliant. The sun spots on my skin have also faded.
Glamour’s benefits on the hormonal system proves just as effective for me. Monthly acne, mood swings and other hormonal symptoms, such as cravings and exhaustion, were noticeably reduced. Effective skincare that also cares for your internal health? Yes, please.

The History of Whoo Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence gets an update

The History of Whoo’s eighth edition of its Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence offers a regal solution to tired skin with its royalty-inspired formulation and design.
Think of the skin of ancient Korean empresses – and no matter their age, clear and lustrous complexions always come to mind. For these women of the royal courts, the art of ageing gracefully was guided by medicinal remedies made from powerful herbs to retain their youthful glow.
These time-honoured imperial beauty secrets have been thankfully preserved for today’s women by The History of Whoo. The Korean luxury skincare brand brings together modern science with oriental medicine for efficacious formulas that support skin renewal and self-regeneration.
One of its signature lines is the award-winning Bichup range that treats signs of skin ageing by activating skin to heal from within. It mirrors traditional Chinese medicine with products that target the root causes of skin issues and trigger cells for self-repair. One of the range’s most popular bestsellers is the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence, which is known for its ability to reawaken skin vitality.
Now, The History of Whoo has launched the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence White Celadon 8th Edition. The latest iteration adopts precious porcelain as its inspiration to convey elegance and royal art.
Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence White Celadon 8th Edition
The essence’s gorgeous bottling looks every bit an imperial potion. It is adorned with blooming peonies, often thought of as the king of blooms and are not just beautiful but symbolise nobility. Royal courts of the past would use folding screens painted with the flowers during celebratory rituals and important rites to amplify the stately ambience. As a homage to this custom, motifs of colourful peonies are now showcased on a bottle that resembles ivory porcelain. It is topped with a cap in the brand’s signature gold and features a border of an intricate red floral pattern as a striking juxtaposition.
The gentle booster-type essence from the Bichup line is designed to seamlessly fit into any existing skincare routine. Like an elixir for preventative premature ageing, it sinks deep into pores to activate blood circulation and regulates qi, or the vital energy that guides your physical and mental processes. As a first-step essence, it instantly awakens the inner radiance and vitality of fatigued skin that is exposed to environmental stressors from urban living and harmful UV rays.
The brand’s signature Gongjinbidan complex lies at the heart of the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence. The ancient formula, which is said to have been used in the Korean royal courts, comprises six main luxury oriental herbs, including deer antler, angelica root and cornelian cherries, that balance your yin and yang. It also contains Cheongsimbidan to boost skin detoxification, and the medicinal and herbal formula of Gyeongoakbidan to delay premature ageing and protect the skin barrier.
Its other star ingredient, the Haeulhwan complex – made from a mixture of berries, pine trees, goji berries, six-year-old ginseng, foxgloves and wild yam – is encapsulated in microbeads. These penetrate deep into pores upon application to improve radiance and qi, while reducing water retention. The essence also offers a positive ripple effect, as it boosts the absorption of subsequent skincare products and improves their efficacy. Working in tandem, they optimise skin health and recovery to rejuvenate skin from deep within.
Similar to a toner, the essence is best applied right after cleansing in the mornings and evenings. Pour a desired amount onto your palm, then tap and massage the fluid gently onto your entire face. Its lightweight texture, while thicker than a toner, absorbs rapidly and coats skin in a soft veil of moisture throughout the day.
The Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence White Celadon 8th Edition (130ml) is available as a set that includes products from the Gongjinhyang Seol collection, a whitening and brightening range inspired by the pristine lustre of the South Sea pearl. These are the Radiant White Balancer (20ml), Radiant White Lotion (20ml), Brightening Cleansing Foam (13ml), and Radiant White Tone Up Sunscreen (25ml). The entire set is available at $162 (worth $250) at the new facial treatment outlet opening in mid-July at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (Bay Level L1-31). Also available at TANGS at Tang Plaza, TANGS VivoCity, Takashimaya Department Store and BHG Bugis Junction.
