FACE FACTS


With the dry climate and ravages of air conditioning, moisturizers are a beauty essential when living in Beijing. But this daily ritual doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. MetroStyle introduces some well-known Chinese brands that are your skin and your bank balance will like.


DABAO SOD MILK CREAM

Sod Milk Cream is a staple of most Chinese women’s beauty cabinets, but what’s so great about it? The cream that boasts of the perfect combination of Modern Biological Engineering with Traditional Chinese Medicine, contains rich SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) and extract of Ginseng and Astragalus Root(Precious Chinese herbal medicine ) as its main ingredients.

It is believed to not only effectively slow the aging process of skin, but also moisten and nourish the skin.
PRICE RANGE:7RMB——50RMB


BB

Blemish Balm Cream, or what is more commonly known as BB Cream, is currently among Asia's hottest beauty products. So what makes it so popular? The formula is reported to have originated in Germany where, due to the cream's soothing and skin-regenerating properties, dermatologists have been using it for healing scars caused by laser skin surgery. Famous South Korean actresses then started using it for beauty purposes, thus a craze was born. The trend that started in Korea has since spread to Japan, China, South East Asia and has since made its way to Europe and the USA.

BB Cream is a tinted moisturizer, so it not only leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, it also provides perfect coverage like a foundation without clogging the pores. It also contains UV Protection for healthy skin, and anti-wrinkle and skin-lightening benefits.

PRICE RANGE:40RMB——140RMB


HERBORIST

This swish looking brand follows the classics of Chinese cosmetology, and combines it with the latest modern biotechnical achievements. Herborist claims to provide consumers with natural and effective skin care products to create the beauty from root.

As the first modern full herbal products in China, Herborist reflects the essence of Chinese culture that pursues “nature and balance”. The Institute is committed to applying modern scientific research management concepts, and rejuvenating the application of traditional Chinese herbal technologies.

One of their best sellers is the Herborist Refreshing & Moisturizing Emulsion, which is specially formulated with herbal essences of Lonicera Japonica and Mosla Chinensis.

PRICE RANGE:40RMB——500RMB


WATSONS

This local chain has a selection of low cost moisturizing treatments to choose from. Some of our favourites are Watsons Whitening & Moisturising Facial Mask, which promises to help brighten your skin by enhancing skin metabolism and reducing the appearance of dark pigmentation spots while aiding in improving your skin’s moisture retention via accelerated hydration of the epidermis. We also like Watsons Natural Mask Lycopene, which is a specially formulated mask that contains lycopene (naturally found in tomatoes) and ginkgo extracts. Rich in antioxidants, they help to protect your skin from environmental damage and the signs of aging.
