Believe it or not, we’re about to hit the midway mark for 2022. If you’ve been running at full steam for the past six months, now’s a great time to slow down a pace or two, take a breather, maybe even indulge in some beauty and skincare pampering.
As you already know, we’re always more than happy to assist with that last part. In fact, this month has seen a slew of exciting beauty drops, which range from bright floral fragrances from Gucci Beauty and Louis Vuitton, to skin-restoring power products from Drunk Elephant and The Original. Keep scrolling for our favourite skincare and beauty drops for June.
Gucci Beauty Tears from the Moon Eau de Parfum
A new addition to Gucci Beauty’s The Alchemist’s Garden luxury collection of fragrances, the Tears from the Moon eau de parfum is a genderless scent that takes after the independent, exuberant spirit of a dragonfly. Inspiring us all to embrace lightness in our lives, the floral fragrance centres around a dewy bouquet of fresh White Peony, dewy Lily of the Valley, and sensual Stephanotis. A lacquered white glass bottle, reminiscent of vintage apothecary containers, holds the illuminating perfume, appliqued with a gold foliage pattern and decorated with a dragonfly to symbolise freedom, wisdom and transformation.
Available at Gucci Beauty KLCC Store and Gucci Beauty Boutique at Mid Valley Megamall.

Fenty Skin Cookies N Clean
Detoxing has never sounded this delicious. Fenty Skin presents Cookies N Clean, a whipped clay detoxifying face mask that promises to tighten pores, lessen excess oil and refine the texture of the skin without stripping it of moisture. Clean, vegan, fragrance-free and gluten-free, the Cookies N Clean mask was named by Rihanna for its scrumptious bouncy whipped texture and its equally irresistible results. Formulated with charcoal, salicylic acid, as well as rhubarb and ginger extracts, the detox mask is not only soothing and clarifying, it also comes with the added fun factor of watching it go from white to grey upon application to the skin.
Available at sephora.my and Sephora stores.
Supergoop! Every. Single. Face.
Supergoop! introduces its most universal and versatile formula to date: Every. Single.

Offering a seamless, non-greasy finish with no white cast, this sunscreen is designed to suit every skin type, tone and routine.

Louis Vuitton Fleur du Désert
Les Parfums Louis Vuitton’s homage to Middle Eastern perfumery culture continues its journey with the new Fleur du Désert, a celebration of famed flowers native to the region: jasmine, orange blossom, and rose. A composition by master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, the fragrance is one of dynamic contrasts, from the rich, woody depth of Oud Assam, to the bright honeyed tones in the bouquet of flowers. Warm touches of cinnamon and sensual hints of Ambrox soften into notes of musky ambrette seed, leaving an unmistakable imprint of pure sophistication to linger on the skin.
