Laura Mercier Face Polish, RM169
One of the beauty brand’s top sellers, the Face Polish is a creamy scrub with purifying micro beads that cleanse and exfoliate to remove dead skin. Like all Laura Mercier products, the scrub is dermatologically and allergy tested to minimise irritation, making it great for all skin types. www.lauramercier.com

Kiehl’s Deep Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Treatment, RM95
Restore your scalp’s balance and get the most out of your shampoo by using this exfoliator before shampooing. It removes flaky build-up and purifies the scalp, imparting vitamins and minerals to nourish it. www.kiehlstimes.com.my

REN F10 Smooth and Renew Mask, RM129
Cult beauty brand REN is finally available in Malaysia. Although their Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is their best known product, the rest of the REN line is just as good – take, for example, the F10 Smooth and Renew Mask. It’s both a mask and an exfoliant, containing gentle fruit acids that will exfoliate and detoxify the skin, plenty of vitamin C and omega 3 and 6 oils. www.renskincare.com
