It’s becoming more significant to make choices that are eco-conscious and guilt-free when it comes to everything we buy and this encompasses beauty and fashion. Ever since we’ve discovered Drunk Elephant, the way we perceive skincare has changed. This well-rounded lifestyle brand is the brainchild of Tiffany Masterton with one concept in mind, “What makes you happy?” Reflecting on the products we use and utilize in our everyday life, she has extended beyond skincare with newly launched hair and body collection. Applying the unique skincare philosophy for her successful products, you can enjoy luxurious products for hair and body without harming the environment.
Our favorites from the new line include the Sili Body Lotion priced at HKD $160. The supercharged formula restores dull, dry and irritable skin to a healthier and more balanced state. We have also fallen in love with the T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub priced at HKD $285. The mixture also uses a stable, supercharged AHA/BHA acid blend designed to rapidly break down and dissolve dead skin cells and styling product buildup, while biodegradable and perfectly gentle plant cellulose exfoliating beads sweep them away. It’s time to make changes in your beauty routine and it’s never too late to make the right choice every day.

Subtle Energies’ Natural Deodorant
We’ve been championing natural products on our platform constantly and Subtle Energies’ Natural Deodorant ticks all the boxes for a winning formula. It has over 64% alcohol, plus anti-bacterial essential oils, such as tea tree, Tulasi, and Kashmir lavender. Did you also know that essential oils have anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial qualities to a greater or lesser degree? These cell promoters do not destroy the natural flora of the body but enhance our immune system through an application on the skin, which allows the oils to penetrate directly into the bloodstream. It’s an effective aluminum-free deodorizer with a fresh aroma that will keep you going throughout the day. With summer fast approaching, you need this product in your life for sure. We also love that you can alternatively use it as a hand and surface sanitizer. How’s that for multi-purpose? Subtle Energies is now available at Morpheus Spa.
