For most of us, luxe skincare products are a necessary indulgence. Our skin deserves nothing but the best, from serums and face oils to creams, lotions and face-masks, we all have our list of skin savers that keep us looking as fabulous as we do. Unfortunately, not all these beauty buys can be found at a drugstore around the corner.
Making some fabulous skincare products easily accessible are these top online stores. We are letting you in on our secret to glowing skin.
A long-standing, dependable beauty site that offers great offers and discounts on skincare and other beauty needs. Shipping is free to anywhere in the world, so stock up on cult beauty brands like Dermalogica, Aesop, Perricone MD and more.
Another one that offers free worldwide shipping, Beauty Bay is an excellent UK-based website that stocks several iconic brands (and even some boutique brands with cult followings, like bodhi, Egyptian Magic and Freeze 24-7). They have product reviews to help you make more informed choices and even an in-house range of make-up and accessories. Free shipping.
iHerb is not exclusively a beauty website, but it is a treasure trove of herbal and organic products as well as beauty supplements. Your one-stop-shop for beauty, the natural way. Shipping to Singapore is cheap at US$4 per order. Stock up on essential oils, cocoa and shea butters and organic face masks. Look out for brands like Avalon Organics, Now Foods and Bee Naturals.
A homegrown beauty site, and a great success story. Credit Luxola for bringing cult brands like Mario Badescu, SuperGoop and Deborah Lippman to our shores, and their list of brands keeps growing. Watch out for their 30% discount sale. Purchase $10 or more and get free delivery. The best part - they deliver on the next business day.
While not as exhaustive a collection as the beauty go-to’s listed above, Superberry offers a curated selection of skincare brands that include FemmeScience - a range of skincare and acne products from the US, whose products are 100% free of fragrance, dyes and irritants. They also sell silk masks and Ciracle products from Korea. Delivery is charged at $12 per package, but is free if your order exceeds $150.
Little Things in Life (Hong Kong)
If organic skincare is your thing, then Little Things in Life (HK) is right up your alley.

They even have organic skincare for babies, which are sure to delight your little ones.

In love with Korean beauty products? Well, this is the website for you. Wish Trend has a host of Korean beauty bestsellers in there. Think SkinMiso face masks, eyelash curling irons and many more. They ship free for orders over US$69 and each order is shipped with free samples. Win-win.
UK-based beauty emporium that ships free to Singapore if your order is above GBP10 (or S$21). Several of these products are not available in Singapore, and even if they are, Feel Unique’s prices are better. Browse Clarisonic, Elizabeth Arden, Elemis and even affordable brands like Sebamed and Australian BodyCare.
