Customisable Beauty Brands to Try

<

• We round up some bespoke beauty brands with products to meet your needs

====================

When it comes to beauty, we know it’s not one-size-fits-all. So, we’ve rounded up a few of the latest customisable beauty experiences to try, with made-just-for-you products that will work to meet your skin, hair, and general beauty goals.

Tailored Skincare: I Never Use Foundation Breakfast Club

Our skin type usually determines what we need, but seasonal changes can also affect what we require from the products we use. A quick polish can reveal that glowing skin underneath.

I Never Use Foundation (INUF) Breakfast Club’s Tsim Sha Tsui location houses a spa, nail salon and product refill station – but we’ve got our eye on the Green Beauty Bar that allows you to create a personalised facial or body scrub. There, with the help of INUF’s team members, you’ll select a natural exfoliant of either jojoba or nutshells, followed by boosters to hydrate (rose), brighten (grapeseed), detox (activated charcoal) and more to add to a milky, soothing base. All of the ingredients used are natural and 100% vegan. If you don’t have time to pop by, you can order a scrub online too.

Bespoke Lipcolours: OUT OF COLOURS

Of the thousands of lipcolour options out there, it’s hard to pick a match for your skintone. But what if your next signature shade is just a few steps away?

OUT OF COLOURS is a lip lab with two locations in Hong Kong that lets you create your own lipstick based on finish, colour, and scent. With the support of OOC’s colour specialists, whether you’re after a deep matte plum or a sheer pink tint, there are plenty of combinations to consider when creating your bespoke tube of cruelty-free, gluten-free lipstick. If you’re feeling extra creative, there’s the additional option to mix several shades together during a Colour Mixing Lipstick Experience. This also makes a great team-building activity or birthday celebration; call ahead to book a session.

Personalised Nutrition: Alixir Life

The right kind of skincare is important, but what we’re ingesting is crucial to skin radiance, too. But which supplements should we be taking for nourishment from the inside out?

Alixir Life offers personalised vitamin and supplement packs that are created after your “consultation” – a quiz designed by a nutritionist and medical advisors that considers your age, physical activity habits, diet and health and beauty targets. So whether you lack zinc or need astaxanthin, these packs will target your skin and hair needs in a way that suits your lifestyle. Try it for a cycle of 28 days, or get regular deliveries to top up your wellness routine. Alixir Life can also support other areas such as immunity, focus and sleep, which boost your general wellbeing – which, as we all know, is the real secret to true beauty.

Customised Haircare: Function of Beauty

Whether you’ve had the same cut for years, or sporting a new colour or style, personalising your haircare will help to keep your tresses in the best shape possible.

Function of Beauty works based not only on your hair type, but also on your hair goals. Take the quiz to determine a hair profile, then go on to customise your cruelty-free, sulfate- and paraben-free 100% vegan formula with a mix of over 60 natural ingredients. Do you have coarse or fine hair? Is it shine, moisture or heat protection you’re after? After finalising your fragrance and colour options for your shampoo and conditioner, move on to design your bottle for a genuinely one-of-a-kind product. Add on a customised hair mask to up the ante on the pampering, and become a subscriber for free shipping to Hong Kong.
