The Best Beauty Products To Invest in Now

With Spring upon us, we’ve shortlisted the ultimate edit of high-end beauty must-haves to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best for 2024.

La Prairie

 

One of La Prairie’s most exciting innovations to date, Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait is an intensive resculpting treatment packed full of potent Caviar Infinite and formulated to strengthen and re-densify the skin.

Inspired by the art of Bauhaus, this luxurious extrait works on the skin’s vertical pillars, an area that has otherwise been overlooked by skincare, to enhance the vertical dimensions of the skin ligaments.

La Prairie’s scientists have created a harmony of youth that has been rigorously tested, and thirty-five years in the making, have developed the Caviar Infinite that infuses this now hero product.

Working to resculpt the contours, lift and induce volume back to the skin, the extrait is applied on freshly cleansed and toned skin as a step before applying the brand’s cult Liquid Lift and Caviar Luxe cream elevating the overall ritual. The result is a regained element of plumpness, satin-smooth skin and a lifted facial contour.

 

Dior

 

Infused with the latest extract created by the house of Dior, Rosapeptide, Dior Prestige La Crème has been formulated with the extract enriched with the coveted Rose de Granville and can reverse the signs of ageing, giving the appearance of looking up to six years younger in just eight weeks.

Known as the ultimate skincare jewel, La Crème works to reconstruct the structure of ageing skin whilst simultaneously reviving eight youth biomarkers as it revives youthfulness.

Created with a formula comprised of 94% natural-origin ingredients, a six-step and six-temperature process is undertaken to achieve the Crème’s velvety texture. Adding a sub-filler technology maintains water within the skin.

Presented in a coveted refillable jar and finished with the signature scent synonymous with the cream, along with the promise of denser and plumper skin, make La Crème a permanent fixture on your dressing table.

 

Sisley

Sisley’s Exfoliating Enzyme Mask is a one-minute wonder-worker. The ultimate pick-me-up, the mask instantly boosts radiance and clears excess make-up and sebum in a flash-facial application.

Gently exfoliating the skin using natural enzymes, the transformative powder texture becomes a cream upon contact with water, seamlessly spreading and purifying the face. The bonds between dead skin cells are broken down and removed, and the Papain-enriched formula gives a boost thanks to the addition of Vitamin B3.

Pores appear tighter, and skin is illuminated; the gentle mask gives an on-the-go glow to dull skin and improves its overall texture over time when used once or twice a week. It can be used as a pre-mask when indulging in one of Sisley’s radiance or sensitive skin routines for optimal results.

SENSAI

For an instant lift in your look and spirit, look no further than Sensai’s Lift Focus Essence, a new addition to the cult range enriched with Sensai’s favourite Koishimaru Silk Royal blend.

This impactful product features Sensai’s Lift Focus Complex, designed to target elastin and collagen within the skin’s structural compounds, engineered to counteract the physical pull of gravity and the sag-inducing downers of city life.

Targeting elastin and collagen, the complex actively seeks to encourage collagen production whilst preventing the breakdown of the elastic fibres thanks to its elastase-combating active ingredients.

For optimal results, Sensai also recommends its signature brand massage ritual to enhance the application of the essence. The Dimensional Lifting Stretch gives a lift across the facial features and neck with upwards strokes and applying gentle pressure for that added boost.

Oribe

 

For a blowdry worthy of royalty, look no further than Oribe’s Royal Blowout spray; this hair-raising potion is the ultimate secret to a perfectly coiffed do.

Formulated to smooth untamed tresses, the ultra-lightweight mist protects hair from heat damage, repairs split ends and strengthens the hair inducing body and shine.

UV-absorbing molecules work to protect against UV rays whilst argan oil softens the hair, and the spray’s special silicone complex forms a sheer layer bound to keratin for thermal protection and shine.

Safe to use on coloured hair, this LA-Blowdry in a bottle is vegan, gluten-free and animal-friendly.

Eighth Day

Having taken Hollywood by storm, Dr Antony Nakhla’s game-changing skincare brand Eighth Day has launched exclusively at Harrods, and its cult Regenerative Serum is at the top of our list.

As luxurious as it is effective, the serum is an all-in-one formulation designed to deliver plumper and more youthful skin with an impressive ingredient list at the helm.

Combating the 10 most problematic skin concerns and factors of the environment, a patent-pending technology, Peptide-Rich Plasma, is at the core of the product and is composed of 24 bioidentical synthetic peptides, growth factors and amino acids.

This groundbreaking skin saviour heals the skin and, at the same time, improves loss of volume, fine lines and wrinkles.

Kerastase

 

 

Creating a foundation for luscious locks, Kérastase’s iconic Bain Satin 1 is our favourite shampoo for giving dry hair some TLC.

Gentle enough for daily use and safe on coloured hair, the hair cleanser that always finds itself in the black book of a number of celebrity hairdressers is infused with Irisome, designed to nourish damaged tresses.

Protecting hair from oxidation to give longevity to the smoothing and moisturising properties, Bain Satin 1 is best left on for a few minutes to see optimal benefits.

Housed in the recognisable bottle synonymous with Kérastase’s cleansers, this bathroom-shelf hero is the secret to enviable shine and silky soft hair.
