Clearly back to school

School's finally back in session and the added stress might adversely affect your skin. Preventing oil production is the key to avoiding breakouts, and Neogen's Blemish Soothing Overnight Mask (HK$235/100ml) could help. The mask claims to be perfect for sensitive skin- witch hazel extracts and salicylic acid gently reduce redness and encourage fast skin cell regeneration. Informal clinical trials have shown that the mask is far more efficient than blotting paper. Available at Watsons.

Make 'em pop

Eyeshadow is one you things you can love and hate at the same time, due to creasing and fallout, but it doesn't have to be that way! Clinique's new line of Lid Smoothies (HK$180/7ml) are cream-based eyeshadows formulated with antioxidants that protect and cool the skin. They boast eight-hour coverage- perfect for Hong Kong's humid weather- and the user-friendly applicator makes blending and layering quick and easy. And with an array of 12 shades to choose from, you're bound to find one you love. Available at Clinique counters.
