Saturday Skin Yuzu Vit. C Sleep Mask & Take Control 3-Pc Perfect Travel Companion

Another K-beauty brand on our radar is Saturday Skin, which is exclusively available at Adora. The South Korean brand boasts of being "a weekend in a bottle", meaning your skin will feel rested and relaxed, just how we too are during weekends! We tried the Yuzu Vit. C Sleep Mask, which is a great final step for your evening routine. It has a jelly-like texture that glides on easily, and Yuzu, which contains three times more Vit. C than other citrus! Use it as a mask overnight to wake up to visibly brighter, nourished skin! 


Another pick we loved is the Take Control 3-Pc Perfect Travel Companion which consists of a Pore Clarifying Toner, Waterfall Glacier Water Cream, and Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream! It's a great add-on to your luggage, or a starter pack if you're not sure what to get yet. It provides a complete kit for clear, balanced, and brighter looking skin minus the fuss!

Dior Rosy Glow Blush

Who can ever have enough blush? Not us! When the Dior Rosy Glow Blush dropped, we sat up and paid attention, for we knew we were in for a treat! Reinvented in 2023 by Peter Philips, the iconic Rosy Glow Blush gets a new formula and new shades to suit different skin tones, from lightest to darkest. Two new shades include 012 Rosewood, a delicate pink, and 015 Cherry, a timeless red. The formula is now infused with Eosin, which reacts to the pH and humidity levels of skin to enhance the wearer's natural glow. Available locally at Dior Beauty Boutiques.
