The phrases ‘active-packed’ and ‘sensitive skin’ rarely go together in a sentence, because as anybody who suffers from easily triggered skin types will know, a potent cocktail of active ingredients found in skincare is often the culprit behind all sorts of flare-ups.

But for those who want the results of firm and smooth skin without risking a bad reaction, you’ll want to look to Malaysia’s sensitive-skin-friendly beauty brand CS12, which has recently added two new members to its anti-ageing range.

Co-founded by lifestyle blogger and entrepreneur Ashley Yeen, who personally copes with sensitive skin, CS12’s latest anti-ageing products feature an all-new hero ingredient, the trademarked CellRevEX. This new formula enables those with sensitised skin to tackle fine lines and sagging skin without risk of flare-ups, revealing strengthened and refined texture at the same time.

Sensitive skin is often due to an impaired skin barrier function, which has left skin easily reactive to irritants. That’s why it’s important to choose skincare products that work to repair and regenerate the skin.

This first step can be ticked off with the Eternity Miracle Essence: It features more than 10 types of botanical extracts and active ingredients that work to regenerate new skin cells. One of the heavyweight ingredients is Crithmum maritimum, a species of flowering plant in the carrot family, that has been discovered to have over 90 types of nutrient benefits, 18 types of amino acids — the building blocks for cells — and 46 types of defense and repair mechanisms that really help to give your tarnished skin the rebirth it needs. Stimulating cell regeneration and enhancing metabolism, the Miracle Essence is a crucial first step to creating a new level of firmness in the skin.

Next, the Eternity Miracle Fluid is a comforting moisturiser that helps to refine and rejuvenate tired and loose skin texture. Used as early as age 25 — when human skin typically begins to naturally degenerate, this silky lotion nourishes the skin with CellRevEX technology, which increases the skin’s ability to absorb moisture and retain hydration.

It also works to fill up the dry, compromised scaffolding of your skin cells, plumping each cell for that healthy and radiant glow. This props up your cells to reduce the look of lines and large pores — all without irritating the skin.

The Eternity Miracle Essence is priced at HK$669/30ml; the Eternity Miracle Fluid is priced at HK$629/30ml. Shop CS12 online with free shipping city-wide (HK$30 delivery fee for Macau with purchases below HK$500).
