Angela Caglia La Vie en Rose face roller

When it comes to the holidays, self-care is definitely a priority. So celebrity facialist Angela Caglia‘s La Vie en Rose face roller (HK$510) is a great gift for your besties because it encourages them to work on their skin even more and get that “Hollywood glow”. This face roller is easy to use and carry, too. Simply apply any serums with the tool to reduce dark circles and puffiness. Head to Lane Crawford for this affordable and sweet gift.

Dr Barbara Sturm Brightening Food

Recently, German skincare scientist Dr Barbara Sturm just introduced her new Brightening Line, which includes the Brightening Food, Brightening Serum, Brightening Face Lotion and Brightening Face Cream, all of which aim to heal pigmentation issues from the inside out.
