The new tenants that have made their way to ION Orchard are making us all excited, with many of them launching their first standalone boutiques in Singapore. If you only have time to check them out during lunch, here are three we think are worth a visit:
VMV Hypoallergenics at #B3-48
Cosmeceutical brand, VMV Hypoallergenics finally opens its first store in Singapore at ION Orchard. The brand is known to be a lifesaver for those with sensitive and allergy-prone skin, and is famous for having a rating system on each product that shows which common allergens are absent from it. The cosy store carries a wide variety of products, ranging from skin and body care to makeup, and goodies for baby, women, and men.
Try: Armada Face & Body Shield 60. This is amazing because it is doesn’t just protect you against UVB and UVA from the sun, but also from indoor lighting from lamps and computer screen, for instance.
Yves Saint Laurent beauty boutique at #B2-34
YSL fans, rejoice! Yves Saint Laurent has opened a 480-square feet standalone store in ION Orchard. The launch doesn’t just mark the opening of its first boutique in Southeast Asia, but also its comeback in Singapore after an absence of three years. No more scrambling to stock up while you’re overseas – now that it’s right here in Singapore. Boy, are we lucky!
Try: Touche Éclat, of course! This is touted a favourite among top makeup artists to brighten up complexion effortlessly. With a simple click of the pen, it can be used to conceal dark circles and fine lines, and for on-the-go touch-ups.
Apivita at #B3-45/46
Founded by Greek pharmacists, Nikos and Niki Koutsianas, Apivita carries products derived Greek flora, plant extracts and the bee (apis means “bee” in Latin!). This is the first Apivita store in Singapore, and visiting it can make any beauty junkie feel like a child in a candy store because of its wide array of offerings. Besides skin, hair and body care products, you can also shop for pastille, scented candles and essential oils!
Try: Express Masks. Conveniently packaged in individual palm-size packs, Apivita Express Masks have variants for every skin concern. To name a few, Prickly Pear is for moisturizing, Royal Jelly if you want firming benefits and Green Clay is for deep-cleansing.
