For the boys

Kiehl's introduces a new eye treatment Eye Alert for guys. It is made with cooling cucumber and alfalfa extracts to energise and hydrate the thinner skin of the eye area. Alfalfa was first discovered and used by the Arabs. It is known for its strengthening qualities. With a blend of vitamin E and caffeine, the formula fights fatigue and is said to combat dark circles and puffiness. Retail price is HK$215.

Fairy tales

Japanese cosmetics brand Fancl has just launched two limited edition makeup sets inspired by dreamlike fairy tales. The sets (HK$278) include two eye shadow palettes which create a soft, gentle look for fair complexions, cheek colour in coral pink and pearly pink shades, and a makeup base. For an additional HK$210 you can get a pressed powder compact. The products are free of preservatives and additives, so are suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Available at Fancl stores.
