Hong Kong’s summer humidity can take a toll on our beauty routine. But worry not; b.liv’s Great Summer Kit (above; HK$490) is all about helping to maintain a clear and smooth complexion, especially for those with oily skin. The kit contains Got Oil Relief, Off With Those Heads sebum gel and Absolute Matte – the brand’s latest clarifying charcoal sheet mask – which together work to control sebum excretion, cleanse and moisturise the face. It also comes with a free powerbank.


Not everyone has an inner make-up artist to guide their daily beauty routine. That’s where MAC’s Look in a Box (right) kits come in. Each of the three kits contains a lipstick, lipglass, Technakohl liner and Veluxe Pearlfusion Eye Shadow Trio compact. Among the three distinctive colour schemes – pink, coral and nude – we most love the look created using All About Coral (HK$440) as the warm metallic eyes and coral lips give off a healthy glow.


Net-A-Porter's Summer Kit (left; HK$375) features eight essentials that prep you for the summer heat from head to toe. Open the black ribboned box to indulge in products such as Ren's Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil and rahua's shampoo and conditioner. Use Verso's day cream for UV-protection and hydration and touch up your face with Eyeko's long-lasting liquid eyeliner as well as Hourglass' high-shine gloss. The other items are a body serum by Kahina Giving Beauty and Sachajuan's Hair Repair. Vanessa Yung
