Givenchy Ressource: Hydration By Nature

Chronic stress has become one of the world’s number one health concerns and presents a new challenge for skincare. Products are now expected to provide a scientific solution to the negative effects of stress.
The level of hydration the skin needs to look young and beautiful is the first to be impacted by psychological fatigue, both on the skin surface, where stress alters the barrier function’s permeability, and inside the cells, where stress has a major impact on the skin’s moisture level.


Resource is the first moisturising anti-stress treatment which, in addition to correcting the harmful effects of psychological fatigue on the skin, rebalances its moisture content to provide a complete action and absolute comfort.
Because stressed skin can also mean sensitive skin, the formulas in *RESSOURCE *have been pared down to only what is essential. They are rich in natural ingredients and created to work with the skin and to minimise any additional reactions.



Containing at least 96% natural ingredients, the formulas in the *RESSOURCE *line are designed to be compatible with all skin types, even the most sensitive.
Because the skin’s hydration level and balance are directly affected by stress, Givenchy Laboratories have created the BEAUTY MOSS COMPLEX®, an antidote against damage to the skin caused by environmental and emotional stress. This complex is made from 100% natural ingredients such as moss and everlasting flower; it uses a sustainable approach and helps rebalance the moisture inside the epidermis, protecting the skin against the negative effects of stress.


Moss reactivates the flow of water through the skin to keep the cells perfectly hydrated.


Known for its fortifying properties, it helps to retain the water found naturally in the skin and strengthens its barrier to stop moisture from evaporating. By soothing and comforting the skin, the everlasting flower extract also helps reduce the visible signs of stress (redness, tightness).


The jars and bottles used for the RESSOURCE line are made of recyclable glass or plastic, and the two materials can be separated when the product has been used, so recycling them is easier.
In addition to these eco-designed packagings, the boxes are made using sustainably managed forests and with biosourced inks. They do not any contain any unnecessary cardboard inserts.

A THREE-STEP MOISTURISING ANTI-STRESS ROUTINE Balanced, soothed and perfectly hydrated, the skin appears stress-free and glows with natural radiance.

The first essential step in the skincare ritual, this lotion is enriched with soothing and calming liquorice extract, which complements the benefits provided by the BEAUTY MOSS COMPLEX®.
Apply using the palms of your hands or a cotton pad to soothe the skin and refine its texture, leaving it visibly more supple and luminous, ready to take full advantage of the benefits provided by the products to follow.
Additional benefit: its refreshing, ultra-light and transparent texture instantly revives the skin.

The second key step in the moisturising routine, this concentrated serum is enriched with an extract of passion fruit oil that has been selected for its essential fatty acids, omega-6, omega-9 and vitamin E to keep the skin nourished, strengthened and better protected.
The skin is left stronger and perfectly moisturised, better equipped to fight the effects of daily stress. Luminous and plump, it glows with new radiance and regains its original softness.
Additional benefit: ultra-light and with a delicate milky texture, the Fortifying Moisturising Concentrate melts onto the skin. Right from the first time it is applied, the skin becomes soft, velvety and plump.



This is the final step in the daily moisturising routine. Light and fresh, the Velvet Moisturising Cream is designed for normal to combination skin.
From the first application, the skin is soothed, plump and equipped with long-term protection against daily aggression. Day after day, the complexion regains the beautiful, natural radiance of healthy and well-hydrated skin.
Additional benefit: its unique gel-cream formula, which glides onto the skin surface and instantly melts.


For the final step in the ritual for dry skin, the rich version of the cream provides extra nutrition. Bathed in just the right level of hydration and perfectly nourished, the skin is once again soft and soothed. It is fortified and ready to deal with aggression, while radiating a beautiful natural glow. Additional benefit: its rich and melting cream-balm texture glides over the skin surface and envelops it in softness. A real source of comfort for dry and dehydrated skin.

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.

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.
