Very much the pinnacle of luxury, Valmont needs no introduction. As well as its recently launched fragrance collection, the Berkeley favourite is also synonymous with its high-end performance skincare.
Built on a reputation of combining scientific excellence with exceptional alpine ingredients, the Swiss brand was established in 1985 and its products remain coveted by the beauty industry’s finest.
Offering a plenitude of products tailored to different skin types and concerns, Valmont’s extensive brands span across different rituals, with the Valmont line at the core alongside the Maison’s prestigious L’Elixir des Glaciers collection and fragrance collections.
The latest innovation from Valmont is Primary, a line aimed at promoting the skin’s microbiotic balance in a range of gentle products designed to give long-lasting effect and create a barrier for a healthy complexion.
Perfect for sensitive skin, this range of minimalist saviours see the Maison go back to the basics, suitable for everyday use, the formulas see limited quantities of preservatives and a complex of probiotics, prebiotics and provitamin B5.
A routine of five products either used together or alone, the Primary range is produced using a UHT sterilisation procedure and air-tight packaging preventing contamination. While suitable for all skin types, the products in the line are complex solutions to problematic skin with concerns ranging from redness to blemishes and dryness.
From the Primary Solution which targets localised imperfections to the more generalised Primary Cream which calms and soothes sensitised skin, this range is the perfect all-rounder for skin in need of some TLC.
L’Elixir des Glaciers
Centred around the precious foundations of nature, L’Elixir des Glaciers by Valmont is comprised of the rarities of Swiss glacial waters, plant extracts and the essence of bees in a curated range of highly effective anti-ageing products.
With three hero skincare products and a luxurious powder foundation, the line is packed full of regenerative and restorative active ingredients combined to create the ultimate in high-end skincare.
One of the key products in the range is the L’Elixir des Glaciers Serum Precieux, a highly concentrated formula with an almost instant lifting and firming effect in just a few drops. Applied sparingly, this lightweight serum is designed to refine pores and minimise the effects of ageing leaving skin feeling toned and looking more radiant.
Available at Harrods.
