Find out what we’re coveting in this month’s What Sassy Wants!
The days are getting shorter and cooler as we gear up for party season. We’ve had a handful of things on our wish list to get us ready for the new season, including new skincare products to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! There are a pair of boots we’ve had our eye on too, as well as a soothing candle and some comfy lounge wear… check out What Sassy Wants this month!
1. Purearth Himalayan Salt Body Polish
Scrub off the dead skin (#ew) of summer with this gorgeous body polish from Purearth. Just because you’ll be in jeans and jumpers, doesn’t mean you can’t have beautifully smooth and polished skin. This product is made with pink Himalayan salt crystals, hand-pounded wild apricot kernels, walnut and pomegranate… and smells divine! It’s time to make a spa date with yourself at home…
Available online here, or at Kapok at PMQ, or at The Boutique at the Four Seasons Hotel.

2. Coconut Matter WILD Virgin Coconut Oil
We’ve touted the benefits of coconuts time and again, yet we’re still going loco for coco at Sassy HQ! Coconut Matter’s WILD virgin coconut oil is great as an energy booster in your morning coffee, juice or smoothie. Or you could use it in your hair, as a body moisturiser… the uses are endless! Made using the award-winning Direct Micro Expelling process, its delicate aroma will transport you to the white beaches and blue waters of the Solomon Islands.
A jar of Coconut Matter’s WILD virgin coconut oil is $210, available online here.
3. SCHIESSER Women’s Tanks
Who said you’ve got to be in massive woolly jumpers all season – it just doesn’t get that cold in the 852! You’re best bet is to layer, so why not start with one of these colour tanks from SCHIESSER? Made from supima cotton, it suits everyday wear. Best of all, they’ll add a pop of colour to a drab, monochrome winter wardrobe…
Available from SCHIESSER, Shop 3005, 3/F, Miramar Shopping Centre, 132-134 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
4. Monica Vinader #SheInspiresMe Friendship Bracelet
Are you an early bird on the hunt for some Christmas gifts? Or just need a great birthday gift for the bestie? Monica Vinader’s simple and elegant bracelets (which stack beautifully) are just what you need. The best part is the bracelets can be engraved. Engrave the name of the woman who inspires you, and all proceeds from the sale of this bracelet will be donated directly to Women for Women International UK. Shopping for a good cause… sounds alright by us!
Available in Rose Gold or Sterling Silver for $1,050 at Monica Vinader, Shop 1025C, ifc mall, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong, www.monicavinader.com
5. Cowshed’s Grumpy Cow Uplifting Body Lotion
Feeling a bit worn out, girls? So are we! Check out Cowshed’s Grumpy Cow Uplifting Body Lotion, which has a delicious citrus blend of red mandarin and grapefruit. It’s super moisturising as well, as it’s made with shea and cocoa butter… great to soothe dry skin that’s been in the air conditioning all summer.
Available for $390 at the Spa by the Four Seasons, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong.
6. Charlotte Olympia Kitty Candle
Set the mood with this Kitty Candle from Charlotte Olympia. Taking inspiration from their Kitty Flats, this candle will brighten up any cool evening party at your new (or old) digs. Or, you know, perhaps you need to rock some Halloween vibes this weekend…
Available exclusively at Charlotte Olympia, Shop 221, Landmark Atrium, Central, Hong Kong
7. Benefit Totally b.right Limited Edition Skincare Set
The cooler weather is hitting our skin like a ton of bricks, which means it’s time to change up our skincare routine. In one handy limited edition gift set, Benefit Cosmetics has put together all the essentials: a mini facial cream, a mini foaming clean facial wash, a mini “it’s potent!” eye cream, a mini triple performing facial emulsion, a mini dream screen and a mini instant comeback facial serum. Our skin definitely needs a fixin’!
Available at Benefit Cosmetics counters around town.
8. Stuart Weitzman Discoboot
The change in weather signals the arrival of boot season – woohoo! We love the Discoboot from Stuart Weitzman in ‘boardeaux sioux croco’. These boots certainly make a statement, and would look great with any plain-coloured shift dress in a complementing colour and some tights… the perfect autumn look to pound the pavements in!
