Face the day

Over at JOYCE Grooming at LANDMARK, you’ll find a new line of products from Refinery added to the lineup of Omorovicza, Dr Harris and Murdock London. Just in time for summer, the homegrown Hong Kong brand started stocking Refinery’s Mattifying Moisturiser, which reduces shine during those steamy sun-kissed days. Packed with hydrating ingredients such as pumpkin seed extract and oat kernel flour, the moisturiser absorbs oil throughout the day. Pair it with Refinery’s cooling Post Shave Balm — made with healing aloe vera — and rejuvenating Shave Oil to replenish tired skin and promote elasticity.

Refinery’s new specially formulated men’s products are designed to protect and repair skin all summer long.

All eyes on you

Here’s a secret every woman knows, but men are just figuring out: Well-groomed eyebrows are the key to looking effortlessly put together. Whether you’re wrestling thinning arches, blonde brows or overgrowth, put down the tweezers and head over to Careyou Beauty.

A pioneer of semi-permanent makeup, Careyou Beauty transforms brows with its premium 3D Hair Stroke Embroidery Powder Shading eyebrow service. How does it work? After a personal consultation in the amber-lit lounge, a specialist will determine your ideal shape and colour, then use soft hair-like strokes to create natural-looking eyebrows that will last for up to 18-36 months. Better yet, the semi-permanent treatment will enable you to ditch daily cosmetics products and curb waste in the process.

From coffee to red wine stains, most people experience teeth discoloration to some degree, but that unhealthy yellow hue can take a toll on your confidence. Luckily, there’s a quick fix, which provides lasting results: Smile Inc. Dental Surgeons. Established in Singapore more than 20 year ago, this teeth-whitening expert harnesses state-of-the-art laser technology to permanently whiten teeth up to 15 shades lighter in just one sitting.

Each Laser Teeth Whitening treatment takes roughly one hour and is performed chair-side by a dental surgeon and, unlike LED whitening services, the treatment requires zero downtime or at-home maintenance. Only have a few minutes? Not to worry: The 5-in-5 treatment promises to lift your teeth five shades in just five minutes — easy to squeeze in over lunch.
