As the change of the season is inevitable, the brands are busy launching a slew of beauty products to prepare their loyal customers for warmer days. Well, for the rest of us in Asia, it is certainly a divine sign for some shopping spree. Honestly, the weather is quite unbearable nowadays, particularly the scorching sun rays. It seems that no matter how many times we spritz the hairspray throughout the day it doesn’t tame our unruly frizziness. Oh and don’t get us started on the amount of sweat and sebum which pretty much is a recipe for disaster (read acne). If you share similar frustration, fret not as these latest May beauty launches are here to save the day.
