What can fill the void left behind by the tremendous joys of Christmas and our beloved Lunar New Year?
Well the magic of Disney of course!
Ever since it was announced, I’ve been counting down the days and seconds to the release of my most anticipated movie of the decade, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
With every teaser and clip that I see, my excitement only increases by leaps and bounds and don’t you know it!
With just a week left to the release of Beauty and the Beast, I find myself gleefully inundated with messages from friends, family and even Disney themselves. Every time there’s a new Beauty and the Beast related release, be it makeup, clothes, accessories or even toys, you betcha, I’m the first to know about it and I simply can’t contain the excitement any longer.
So here it is, a rundown of my most coveted and dream-worthy Disney collaborations in the run up to the one, the only, Beauty and the Beast!
As a pioneer in personalized skincare, Skin Inc aims to celebrate the empowerment of women by helping women to take control of their unique skincare needs through personalized skincare solutions.
“We believe one size fits one and the Belle character personifies strength; looking after herself and standing up for what she believes in. She truly owns who she is and refuses to fit into a mold. This core idea of empowerment makes this a very meaningful collaboration between Skin Inc and Disney, with Beauty and the Beast”
– Sabrina Tan, Founder and CEO of Skin Inc.
Skin Inc’s Limited Edition Beauty and the Beast Get Glowin’ kit is designed for the modern, outspoken woman who wants to let her inner light shine and take control of her skin. It is a unique brightening serum formulated with Vitamin A serum to improve tone and reduce the appearance of dark circles, nutrient-rich Chlorella serum to improve skin texture, brighten dull skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid serum to deliver long-lasting hydration and ensure deeper absorption. Skin Inc’s Patented Japanese seaweed encapsulation technology allows the effective delivery of three pure, potent serums, which are activated on contact with the skin.
The concoction is encased in a yellow bottle, inspired by the hue on Belle’s signature dress.
As a champion of empowerment, Skin Inc will donate $10 from the sale of every Limited Edition Beauty and the Beast Get Glowin’ kit to the Singapore Committee for UN Women.
This Spring, brow experts K-Palette relaunches their award winning 2-Way Brow Liner and 3-Way Brow Pencil in Limited Edition packaging featuring not one but four iconic Disney Princesses! They are namely Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Rapunzel (Tangled), Ariel (The Little Mermaid), and Cinderella (Cinderella)! And now we can all look like bona fide Disney heroines with these new series.
The shades include: Light Brown, Natural Brown, Mocha Brown, and Greyish Brown.
This fairytale collection retails at $23.90 at BHG, SaSa, and selected Guardian and Watsons stores.
The latest fairytale collection from Atelier Swarovski was inspired by the mystical rose, the iconic flower in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Dazzling pointiage crystal sits around an enchanting centerpiece in the form of a beautifully-faceted bloom, a symbol of youth, inner beauty and love.
Reveling in Disney and Carrie K.’s shared love of story-telling, this thoughtful offering speaks to the beauty and beast in everyone – manifest in creations that beautifully juxtapose precious items such as pearls and gems, encapsulated in the jagged shapes of Beast’s teeth to represent personal imperfection. A suggestion to look beyond the surface, where one can always find the beauty within.
The Disney X Carrie K. Beauty and the Beast collection features fifteen styles including earcuffs, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. Each piece is handcrafted in sterling silver and plated with 18K gold, ranging in price from SGD98 for a Tooth White Pearl Ring to SGD398 for the Teeth White Pearl Drop Necklace in Rose Gold.
A special limited edition Disney Charm will also be introduced to the Carrie K. Bling Bar collection. The versatile charm can be worn as part of a bracelet or even as a pendant. The Beauty and the Beast charm retails at SGD98 or SGD216, as a bracelet set.
Putting peddle to the passion, Carrie K. will donate a percentage of the profits earned from the charm designed for this collaboration to the Singapore Committee for UN Women.
The line was launched on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2017.
These limited pieces are made with gorgeous natural blue-toned labradorite. The metal finishings are 925 sterling silver, plated with either rhodium or rose gold, and each ring is carefully hand-hammered to give a pretty, uneven finish. The rings with the larger gemstone are called “Bête” (which is French for “Beast”), while the ones with the smaller gemstone are named “Belle.”

I wish I could go on and on but there simply aren’t enough hours in the day for little old me to get around to see and try them all.
I’d love to pop down to the Kensington Hotel in London to try their absolutely whimsical ‘Tale As Old As Time Afternoon Tea’ but I guess I’ll just have to settle for my very own Beauty and the Beast themed afternoon tea at home. If I’m lucky I’ll be able to get my hands on some of Twinings’ Beauty and the Beast specialty teas. *wink wink*
If any of you are as over the moon as I am then get ready to jump for joy! You’ll soon get the chance to win one of these little beauties for yourself in our upcoming Beauty and the Beast giveaway!
Watch this space!
Meanwhile, let’s indulge in more #TaleAsOldAsTime magic with this final trailer again.
