A cult skincare favourite amongst many Hollywood celebrities, Dr Barbara Sturm’s arrival in Malaysia is about to stir up some excitement.
We were ecstatic when we found out that Dr Barbara Sturm is making its way to the Malaysian shores, under Kens Apothecary. We can’t wait get our hands on the most-raved-about products. If A-list celebrities from Hailey Bieber to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emily Ratajkowski, and Bella Hadid boast about the benefits and how effective the products, you know that it’s definitely worth a try.
Not only are they cruelty-, paraben-, GMO-, PEG- and fragrance-free, their products have proven to revive that luminosity you’ve always craved for your skin. Dr Sturm is known for her anti-flammatory philosophy and advocacy of non-surgical anti-ageing skin treatments. And so, we’ve curated a guide on the highly recommended products. Currently available as a pre-order, we can assure you that it’ll be worth the wait.

You can kick start your Dr Barbara Sturm journey by giving this highly recommended Enzyme Cleanser (RM300) a go. This two-in-one gentle cleanser and exfoliator starts off as a fine-grained powder, which then transforms into a soft foam for a deep yet gentle cleanse. Suitable for normal to combination and oily skin types, the cult favourite is great for removing dry and dead skin, makeup, pollution and clogged pores after a long day. Use this 2-3 times a week and watch how soft and smooth your skin will be after every wash.
Your one-way ticket to keeping your skin hydrated, protected and firm throughout the day is made possible by applying this Face Cream (RM780) to your daily routine. As everyone’s skin is different, there are options from the Clarifying Face Cream to Face Cream Light and more that target various skin types and conditions. Formulated with Purslane, Skullcap, Shea Butter and Vitamin E, this anti-ageing cream possesses powerful ingredients to help soothe the skin by reducing visible signs of irritation. Go ahead and apply this on your skin day and night, and watch how it’ll leave your skin looking healthy and fresh 24/7.
Your skincare routine isn’t complete without incorporating a gentle exfoliator, and with the Facial Scrub (RM275), you can do just that. Add this to your routine as a twice-a-week affair, and take note of how it removes any dry or flaky skin to prevent breakouts (especially if you’re going through mask-ne), leaving a smoother complexion while stimulating blood circulation. With ingredients like Purslane extract, Horse Chestnut extract, Jojoba Oil and more, it helps soothe the skin and reduce visible signs of irritation in the long run.
You’ve probably heard of this before, but applying SPF to your skincare is the number one priority after moisturising. With the unforgiving Malaysian heat and humidity, this light-textured SPF 50 sun serum (RM675) does wonder to your skin as it offers protection against UVA and UVB rays. Apply a few drops before leaving the house and it will help protect your skin from oxidative damage.
Serums are just as important to incorporate, and this Glow Drops (RM675) remedy is just the essential you need if you’re experiencing tired and dull skin. Formulated with bistorta root extract, wild rose extract, hyaluronic acid, and more; these ingredients help refine the pores for an even appearance to achieve a healthy glow. All you need is to gently pat the solution on the face, eye area and neck after moisturising for a plump and shimmering skin.
