Great hair, nails and accessories are all a must to fully embrace the last month of real Hong Kong summer. We’ve found the perfect picks for you Sassy Girls to finish of the summer with a little glam… read below to find out What Sassy Wants this month!
1. Living Proof
Not all of us are blessed with soft and smooth hair… and in this humidity some of us don’t even stand a chance. However, Jennifer Aniston’s brand Living Proof has finally come to the place it’s needed most… Hong Kong! (Yep – we’ve always wanted ‘Rachel’ hair.) Living Proof offers a wide range of hair products, from shampoos and conditioners to no frizz treatments. Sassy’s pick is the frizz humidity shield, a lightweight hair spray that gives your hair six times more protection from the humid air and keeps your hair how it looked when you left the house!
2. Touch of Nature Soaps
A perfect gift or just to add a little luxury to your bathroom, Touch of Nature Soaps are cold process soaps, hand made using the finest oils and natural ingredients. So ditch those commercial products and indulge in these 100% vegetarian goodies to rejuvenate your skin. We love the Aloe Vera Soap and Honey Oats Soap to give you glowing summer skin. They also offer products to help dry or oily skin, scars and even eczema. You can choose from a wide range to suit your skin best.
The soaps range in price from $25-39 a bar, available online with delivery for orders over $200 here! And at the Kowloon Cricket Club, 10 Cox Road, Jordan, Hong Kong, 2367 4141
Are you looking for a new summer wardrobe? Or outfits that fellow Hong Kongers have never seen before? Then check out Zeraphina. This French inspired label based in Australia has created a new spring/summer line that represents the classic & free-spirited woman. Flowy dresses, harem pants and beautifully embroidered cotton are just some of the trends this unique line offers. We love the Gypsy Top in Black since off the shoulder is huge this summer! This crochet-embroidered top can be dressed up or down whether you’re going to the beach or for evening drinks with the girls.

7. Burberry Limited Edition Autumn Winter Runway Palette
We recently had the chance to stop by the brand new Burberry Beauty Box in Causeway Bay and boy, were we blown away! This dedicated beauty store is the third one in the world and houses all the latest beauty products and ranges from this stylish British brand. It was literally like being a kid in a candy store with all lipsticks, nail polishes and fragrances on offer, but we seriously fell for the Limited Edition Autumn Winter 2015 Runway Palette. It has a rockin’ camouflage design to match the ‘Patchwork, Patterns and Prints’ theme of the Runway collection with khaki green, a soft nude, and striking black for colour. This shadow palette is ideal for creating an effortless smokey eye for the AW’15 season. Stop by the store and don’t forget to test out the interactive digital beauty displays – one word = cool.
