Desire realistic hair-like brows? Avone Beauty Secrets has developed an exclusive brow makeover technique using pure henna derivatives. Called Henna Strokes Brows Crowning Artistry, it’s proving popular among women who want a non-invasive and natural alternative for their brows.

It combines the ancient henna ritual with stunning brow artistry, using ultra fine-tipped nibs in four shades, to help you achieve a perfectly framed face to accentuate your features.

It’s not a tattoo and there are no lesions caused, so there’s no need for numbing cream. The henna is administered on the skin’s epidermis layer, which means no bleeding or swelling – it’s practically painless.

First-time customers enjoy a special price of $180 (UP $400) and a $20 voucher. To make an appointment, Whatsapp 9751-1196 or go to

There’s a reason why you don’t always get the plump, radiant skin you expect even after taking collagen drinks. That’s because consuming them alone is no use if your skin can’t absorb them.

To tackle skin woes like dehydration, dullness, wrinkles and dark spots, you need to first get to their root cause – damaged skin cells. Why? Because skin cells that are weakened are not able to carry out their main functions well. Nor can they fully absorb the nutrients given to them.

Avalon Stemcell Beauty Drink is specifically formulated to solve this problem from within. Using high purity Orchid Stemcell extract, it rapidly repairs and rejuvenates damaged and unhealthy skin cells, thereby improving their ability to absorb nourishment.

In addition, marine collagen peptides replenish depleted collagen and lock in moisture. The use of sparkling water further boosts nutrient absorption, promotes skin metabolism and adds a refreshing zing to this litchi-flavoured drink.

In one go, the Stemcell Beauty Drink helps improve skin’s moisture level and firmness, brighten skin tone, and tighten pores. The look of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation is reduced, while acne problems are lessened.

Out of 259 testers surveyed in Singapore in 2019, 98 per cent said they felt a difference after consuming three bottles of Avalon Stemcell Beauty Drink. It’s also been awarded the Watsons Best Stemcell Supplement Drink for three years running, from 2017 to 2020.

New users should take one bottle a day for the first week, then a bottle every two days for maintenance. Those with major skin concerns may take two bottles daily for 28 days. Drink up and look forward to fresher, smoother skin that glows.

From Nov 1-4, 2020, enjoy a 50 per cent discount on your second box at Watsons and, and 20 per cent off at Guardian and Unity. From Nov 5-Dec 2, 2020, get 33 per cent off three boxes at Watsons and Guardian, and 15 per cent off one box at Unity and

$69.90 per box, at Guardian, Watsons, Unity,, Qoo10 and Shopee.

We’ve all gone through phases when our skin is dehydrated. Fine lines become more pronounced, flaky patches appear, and skin just looks dull, tired and lacking in suppleness.

Masks and rich moisturisers may provide a quick fix, but the results may be short-lived and limited. To properly address the problem, you need to look to the experts. Your trusted Asian skin specialist, Asian Skin Solution, is here to help you achieve a healthy, radiant complexion. Asian skin tends to be thinner than those of other ethnicities, so it loses moisture more easily. And because of this, it is also more prone to knock-on problems such as sensitivity, allergies, and damage by environmental aggressors.

Asian Skin Solution’s customised HydroCare Waterboost Treatment is formulated to restore moisture to parched Asian skin. Suitable for all skin types, it uses botanical ingredients and highly concentrated oxygen molecules delivered directly into skin to hydrate, lock in moisture and boost collagen production. The result: plump, dewy, glowing skin with a youthful bounce.

Until Nov 30, 2020, you can enjoy the HydroCare Waterboost Treatment at $38 (UP $250). The first 30 redemptions will also receive an Asian Skin Solution Age Defense Cleansing Foam worth $49.

To make an appointment (subject to availability), call 6767-0077 or send an SMS to 9699-9783 (state “Herworld Asian” followed by your name). The salon will reply within three working days. Do note that any rescheduling must be done at least 24 hours prior. Terms and conditions apply.

Asian Skin Solution is at #B1-37/40/41 Paya Lebar Square and #03-11/19 Novena Square 2. You can also go to AsianSkinSolution.
