Dreaming of that youthful glow? The new and improved Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel could make your dream a reality as it is tripled-charged with the superior formula of hyaluronic acid, amino acids, and electrolytes for maximum 48-hour hydration. While this gel product has the same power as the cream, it won't clog your pores as it's non-comedogenic and oil-free. It's also lightweight so it won't leave your skin feeling extra heavy and greasy later on. Wear it as is or as a primer and you're good to go.

Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance 

Good news, Cetaphil users! The trusted brand's Gentle Renewing Cleanser, Perfect Serum, and Instant Radiance Mask under the Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance line could be great additions to your skincare regimen. Formulated with Gentle Bright Technology, the new items are made with the brilliant combination of Sea Daffodil and Niacinamide that could help you brighten up dark spots and even your skin tone without irritation. It's also powered with Antioxidant C and Advanced Peptide, making its effects visible after only two weeks of regular use.

Aveeno Skin Relief with Triple Oat Complex 

Looking for a new body lotion for your sensitive and irritated skin? Try the Aveeno Skin Relief. Gentle, fragrance-free, and fast-absorbing, this product is formulated with triple oat complex as well as oat oil and natural shea butter—a combination that's clinically shown to provide relief and keep your extra-dry skin feeling soft and smooth for a full 24 hours. 

Flower by Kenzo - Poppy Bouquet 

If you want to change your scent, here's something floral and fresh: the Flower by Kenzo Poppy Bouquet is much like a beautiful and pleasant flower arrangement. The Nashi Pear "introduces a sprightly floral burst—a sensual mix-and-match of Bulgarian Rose and Gardenia on a moreish base of Almond Wood." It's the perfect scent for women who are into floral and powdery notes combined with a subtle woody touch to produce a sensual smell that will stay with you for long. 

BLK mini multi-use paint 

Loved BLK Cosmetics' all-over paints? The brand is now offering them in mini versions for women who are always on the go. These limited-edition multi-use paints have a light silky texture that blends on your skin perfectly as it gives you good coverage from sheer to full. It's available in five shades: very peri (vibrant purple), high key (electric pink), golden hour (beach peach), tickle pink (ballerina pink), and palm springs (drunk blush).

Unilever Skincare Playground 

It's time to have more fun with the Unilever Skincare Playground—a virtual gaming and shopping adventure that allows you to play, learn, earn, shop, and enjoy as you treat yourself to products that could work wonders for your skin. First launched on the U-Store, Skincare Playground will now be available virtually on U-COINVille, the first metaverse environment with personalized adventures and experiences with Unilever products such as Dove, Pond's, Rexona, Axe, and many more. This virtual playground is perfect for skincare newbies and junkies of all ages.
