The festivities continue this month, with a switch from ruby red for Christmas to bright red for Chinese New Year. And instead of ornamental sets, beauty brands are releasing money-saving editions enrobed in red bottles or boxes with rabbit icons. Dr Dennis Gross’ limited edition product features an extra complimentary five treatments while multiple travel-sized items come along with History of WHOO and La Mer’s sets. Here are some CNY-themed launches we currently have our eyes on.
DENNIS GROSS Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel (Lunar New Year Limited Edition)
The Universal Daily Peel gets a festive makeover for CNY this year and comes in a limited-edition pack of 35 treatments. With a combination of five AHAs and BHAs alongside antioxidants and vitamins, the product helps to lift dead skin and impurities, improving uneven skin tone. The limited edition also comes with a cheaper price point than the usual packaging of only 30 treatments. Sephora

Made to reflect beauty items owned by an Empress of a Chinese royal family, a motif engraved onto the pressed powder is also used on its casing. The special edition set retails at RM585 and comes with an additional refill along with a sample-sized foundation, lip balm and perfume. History of Whoo

ORIGINS Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion (Lunar New Year Limited Edition)
Sporting a minimalistic brick red packaging as opposed to its usual mossy green, the Lunar New Year edition bottle is made using post-consumer recycled materials. Inside, a formula of Reishi Mushroom, Sea Buckthorn and Fermented Chaga is combined to hydrate and soothe any visible redness. As the product is made from natural ingredients, particles may settle so it’s recommended to shake before using. Sephora
