One of Onitsuka Tiger’s classic sneakers has just been given a revamp. The Fabre Ex is the latest iteration of the brand’s iconic Fabre Bl-s shoes. This new version retains the hardy exterior of skate shoes and is made out of “glass leather”, which has a glossy finish. What sets it apart from its predecessor is the advanced footwear technology that makes it more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. The unisex design is versatile and perfect for everyday wear.

Miracle Mask

You’ve gone through the beauty store racks for an all-in-one mask that heals, protects and revitalises skin. Well, look no further because Chantecaille’s Bio Lifting Mask is a healing mask with skin-energising properties. One of its key ingredients is Imperata Cylindrica, an Australian desert plant that helps skin cells conserve moisture, keeping your skin hydrated over an extended period of time. Other ingredients like Pullan and Algae extract help to tighten skin, giving it an overall lifted look. That’s not all – the mask also reduces the look of fine lines, helps fight acne bacteria and calms skin irritation. If you want to wake up with glowing skin, apply this 10 to 15 minutes after cleansing and leave it on overnight.
