Shopping in the sweltering heat is one of the last things we want to do when summer hits Singapore. Dragging our sweaty selves from shop to shop (not the most glamorous look) is not something high on our must-do list. But fear not, fellow shopaholics, as we have compiled a lust-list that can be shopped from the comfort of your own home (and air-conditioning!) From fancy footwear to the perfect work-to-watering hole dress, summer detox packs to nourishing body oil, our must-haves will keep you looking and feeling great this July!
SkinnyMint Besties Value Teatox
Grab your bestie (or even the boyfriend) for a teatox this summer.

With only two special tea blends a day, a teatox can rid your body of toxins, replenish your energy levels and leave you with gorgeous glowing skin. What’s more, they know that even the most hardened de-toxer can lose track from time to time, making these two-person packs the ideal detox dread solution. Made and shipped from Singapore, you’ll get your value pack extra fast so there’s no waiting around (and no excuse) to start getting fit for bikini season!
