|CMCO is back again for Sabah, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor. One strict level up from its Recovery sister as the third wave of Covid-19 sees triple-digit new cases every day.
Since the MCO first announced in March and people were forced to spend most of their time indoors, spending habits have changed.
Shopping has become more about self-pampering currently. Instead of buying perfume and make-up, body care and the segment’s sales have gone up.
People want to feel good when they stay at home, and this trend will continue for a while as homes become focal points for everyone again.
This is because last month, the Diptyque City Candles in KL which was previously only sold in the cities they are named after were sold out fast.
Here are the beauty self-care items that are popular when staying home again.
