What is city life doing to your skin? When Anna, the founder of BE.ST. Organic Singapore, returned to Hong Kong after living in the Australian countryside for 10 years, she started getting inflammation. The cause: pollution, humidity, and the stress of a fast-paced life.
That’s why Anna developed an organic skincare line. BE.ST helps protect and restore your skin. It’s also free of petrolchemicals, parabens, SLS and sulfates, and artificial fragrances and dyes. After all, you’re already exposed to hundreds of chemicals – why apply even more on your face?
Beauty Insider Singapore picks our 4 favourite products from the BE.ST Organic! These are a city girl’s survival kit for a clear, clean and beautiful skin.
1. Organic Ylang Ylang Oat Balance Cleansing Jelly
What we love: It gently removes impurities and light makeup without drying out the skin. The relaxing natura scent of ylang ylang and vanilla are instant mood lifters. That little ritual of rubbing the jelly into your face, feeling it turn into a soft foam, and breathing in the spa-like scents is perfect after a stressful day!
Best for: Most effective especially for people with oily and sensitive skin, but also suitable for normal to dry skin types as it’s a very gentle cleanser that won’t strip your natural oils. We also like using this in the morning or days when we’re not wearing a lot of makeup, or as the second step in a double-cleansing routine.
2. Organic Flawless Cleansing Oil
What we love: Oil-based cleansers are the best way to remove sunscreen and makeup. The BE.ST Organic cleansing oil doesn’t feel greasy at all – even girls with oily skin will love it – but it’s able to remove waterproof cosmetics in one swipe.
Best for: Everyone! It works on all skin types and doesn’t clog acne-prone skin or irritate sensitive skin. We also like using it to fix any makeup smudges in the middle of the day. After massage & wipe off the neck and face with a warm towel, remain the warm & wet towel on face for around 10 seconds to achieve the excellent result. Finally, use 「Organic Ylang Ylang Oat Balance Cleansing Jelly for the next cleansing step. The natural oils will also hydrate the under-eye area and help prevent concealer from caking. Perfect beauty hack!
3. Organic Detox Mask
What we love: It’s the “BE.ST” way to pamper your skin and yourself after a tiring week! Apply the mask on clean skin. Sit back and watch a movie or read a book while it draws out the impurities and clears your pores. Beauty bliss!
Best for: Anyone who has dry, acne-prone or aging skin. Unlike many clay masks it won’t dry out your skin. It’s able to deep-cleanse your pores without removing the natural oils and moisture that your skin needs to stay supple and smooth.
4 . Organic Hydration Firming Essence Gel
What we love: The natural plant extracts heal and strengthen the skin. It doesn’t feel sticky or greasy and is absorbed really quickly. Pat this into the skin after cleansing. You can even use this under makeup!
Best for: All skin types! The formula is very light so it feels comfortable even on the hottest, most humid days. We also like putting this in the refrigerator – it feels so cool and refreshing on the face!
