Naturally radiant

If you're looking for neutral and natural shades for your new spring look, Clarins' Neo Pastels Colour Collection will fit the bill. Its six shades of Blush Prodige (HK$240) - ranging from soft peach, Miami pink to spiced mocha - are made with mineral and plant ingredients to add a subtle, radiant glow to your cheekbones. You might want to try the Rouge Hydra Nude Smoothing Cream Lipstick SPF6 (HK$180) - a slightly sheer but very moisturising lipstick that repairs, nourishes and protects. Available at Clarins counters.

Soothing scents

Apivita's latest essential oils promise to soothe your body after a shower. Essential oils are natural distillations of aromatic plants and herbs. When absorbed, they reach the centre of the brain through the sense of smell, influencing your psyche and mood. Try lavender (HK$230/10ml) for its calming power against stress and insomnia. The fruity scent of grapefruit (HK$200/10ml) is said to give your mind a boost for quizzes and tests. Available at Apivita counters at Lane Crawford, Times Square, and Pacific Place.
