Previously, we talked about a growing population of Instagram beauty microbloggers who never seem to run out of makeup closet space. Instead of your usual Instagram feed material, these beauty microbloggers use Instagram as a platform to share their honest beauty reviews and routines. Often, you’ll see these microbloggers commenting on each other’s #shelfies (selfies of makeup shelves), encouraging each other to keep up with their aesthetic product photography work or marvelling at each other’s dedication to a particular skincare regime. The sisterhood of these microbloggers is definitely glowing as strong as their glowing creams. This time round, we are bringing you more skincare dips from these beauty enthusiasts, especially products that hydrate your face to no ends.

Products featured: La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturising Cream, RODIN olio lusso Jasmine/Neroli Luxury Face Oil, Palermo Body Repairing Body Oil–Bergamot + Lavender, Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist, Fig + Yarrow Underarm Lotion
If makeup organization skill is highly rewarded, @tamirajarrel can definitely make a living out of it. Not only is her Instagram feed minimal yet playful, her makeup stash is also a beautiful mess. We love how she packed those fragile serum bottles into the tiny pockets of her open shelf, which can be a really convenient measure to organize your pocket-sized skincare bottles. The highly coveted La Mer’s Crème de la Mer Moisturising Cream is a go-to for an ultra-rich moisturising base, and you can easily spot it in the #shelfies of other beauty bloggers like @sortofobsessed. We also see a lot of restoring creams and oils going on there, such as the Palermo Body Repairing Body Oil and the Fig + Yarrow Underarm Lotion. The Palermo Body Repairing Body Oil is a botanical oil product that heals sun damage and moisturizes after-shower skin, while the Fig + Yarrow Underarm Lotion acts as an organic deodorant to prevent excessive moisture and sweat accumulation in the underarm area. The humid Singapore weather can really irritate the skin with excessive sweating and constant sun exposure, so investing in these two products may be a good move.

Products featured: CONTEXT Citrus Paradisi candle, Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Waterlight Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ PA+++ Anti-Aging Sunscreen, OUAI Wave Spray, ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray, CONTEXT Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream
Beauty basics that make a bulk of @gracejayde’s skincare stash: Sunday Riley’s Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment, OUAI Wave Spray, Diptyque candles … and some atypical products that we don’t quite often spot in other bloggers’ feeds. The Oribe haircare brand was founded by several hairstyling veterans, and offers a more extensive range of high-end haircare products as compared to OUAI. On the other hand, Kate Somerville is also a high-end clinical skincare line for intensive skin treatment, and Los Angeles-based esthetician Kate Somerville herself is known for her long list of celebrity clients. Singapore skincare junkies will be thrilled to know that Sephora Singapore carries a wide range of Kate Somerville’s products on its online shop. If each beauty blogger has a bias for a particular beauty brand, CONTEXT is definitely in @gracejayde’s bias list. Skincare brand CONTEXT has been under our beauty radar for some time, but not much is known about this new young brand besides its clean aesthetics and plant-based formulated products. We really believe that, with more social media exposure, CONTEXT could easily be the new Herbivore Botanicals. What do you think?

From her Instagram name, @hydratedho is probably trying to tell you how important hydration is to her skincare regime. They say a woman’s cleanser choice really tells a lot about the skincare problem she wants to tackle, and the FRESH Soy Face Cleanser has been raved about for its extra-gentle cleansing properties. No one likes a deep cleanser that leaves your face feeling overly dried up. @hydratedho’s caption confessions reveals that her skin is often dry and covered with red, sensitive spots, so head to her feed for some tips if you have the same skin problems!

@dadmunk seems to be one of those beauty bloggers who are really into different hues of millennial pink, which probably partially explains her pink-toned makeup stash: Glossier Haze and Puff Cloud Paints, Modern Renaissance Palette, etc. This mild obsession with millennial pink extends itself into her skincare decisions too. Saturday Skin is, surprisingly, a South Korean skincare brand that has been receiving a lot of hype for its pink aesthetics and no-fuss approach to cleansing. The GLOW RECIPE Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is another South Korean product that has 5000 person waitlist, all waiting to get their hands (or should I say, face) on this skin-smoothing mask to boost their facial radiance. Aimed at hydration and exfoliation, yet laden with soothing watermelon extract, this cult product is recommended for people with dry or acne-prone skin. Describing this product makes me a little bit hungry actually, since it sounds like a perfect watermelon-blend dessert.
