This year has been an exciting one for MTM Labo. With their recent rebranding, products are now encased in a sleek matt green packaging — a collaborative effort between managing director Kelly Keak and Muji’s art director, Kenya Hara. The new look conveys a sense of zen while staying true to the brand’s love for using natural ingredients and botanical extracts. The brand has also launched a face scrub that’s formulated with a blend of fruit enzymes and acids to soften dead skin cells, as well as rice powder to exfoliate and apricot kernel oil to hydrate skin. You can even have the formula customised in-store according to your skin’s specific needs.

High-tech home devices
01 | Foreo Bear facial toning device
Whether you’re in between aesthetic treatments or are in the market for something to maintain a taut and toned visage, consider Foreo’s Bear microcurrent facial toning device. The Bluetooth-activated device works by harnessing the powers of microcurrents and T-Sonic pulsations to give your facial muscles a workout, leaving it lifted and sculpted as a result. The at-home facial massager also helps to promote better absorption of serums. Beginners can download the app, which offers everything you need to get started.
02 | Dr Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite BodyWare Pro
You’ve heard of LED face masks, now there’s Dr Dennis Gross’ DRx SpectraLite BodyWare Pro. It uses a combination of blue (kills acne-causing bacteria) and red (stimulates collagen production) LED lights to combat signs of ageing as well as acne in as little as three minutes. The longer 14-minute cycle offers pain relief for the body. If you can’t make it for your regular massage session, this is a great DIY option.
