With Autumn soon on the horizon, let us entice you with the latest launches to take the beauty world by storm.
A cult skin-saviour that is coveted by the beauty elite, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Cream is the epitome of audacious luxury. Quite literally enriched with caviar-extract, the iconic Swiss supercream rejuvenates skin while lifting and firming it in a rich creamy texture. Used as part of a five-step ritual, this phenomenon is also available as a lightweight ‘sheer’ formula and is the key to a luxuriously glowing complexion. Lightly fragranced, the Luxe Cream is housed in La Prairie’s signature cobalt blue jar and transforms the skin giving it a radiant, tightened and toned appearance.
Quite literally the personification of power-masking, the Foreo UFO 2 device is the ultimate beauty tool. Designed to deliver a salon-worthy facial in just 90 seconds, this miracle worker is perfect as an on-the-go pick-me-up. An upgraded version of its predecessor, the UFO 2 has been optimised with a full-spectrum LED light and an enhanced thermo-therapy that delivers heat to the skin in no time.
Used in conjunction with Foreo’s Power Activated masks, the device features 8 different LED lights which work with the masks to offer targeted and tailored treatments. Addressing a wide range of skin concerns, the UFO emits 10,000 pulsations per minute massaging the face while thermo-therapy and cryo-therapy work to maximise the benefits of the masks. With LEDs targeting everything from a dull complexion, stressed and puffy skin, there’s no excuse for anything other than a glow after a whizz with this wonder.
The latest project from much-loved fragrance house Tom Daxon, gloved encapsulates Tom’s love for fine fragrance and introduces it in the form of a pedigree hand care duo. Designed in partnership with his mother Dale Daxon Bowers (who notably spent 30 years as creative director of Molton Brown) the range consists of an irresistible hand lotion and hand wash. Both are completely vegan, cruelty-free and made of 85% natural ingredients as well as smelling phenomenal thanks to their Cedarwood fragrance.
Packed full of potent ingredients, this super-duo add moisture to dry hands and the hand lotion is conveniently instant-absorbing which does away with the annoyance of having to excessively rub it in. Subtly scented, key notes of lime, juniper and iris leave a light lingering scent to fresh hands leaving them, as the name suggests, gloved.
For 10 years, Guerlain’s Abeille Royale has been at the forefront of luxury beauty with its ground-breaking formulas and efficiency through the science of honey. Known for its skin-healing powers, the honey of bees continues to be the pinnacle of Guerlain’s research and the latest product to join the Abeille Royale line is the Fortifying Lotion. A revolutionary new step to the luxurious regime which already consists of the coveted Double R Renew & Repair Serum as well as the Day and Night Creams, the lotion acts as a foundation and makes the first step of the ritual. Enriched with 98% naturally derived ingredients, this lightweight formula creates the perfect base for a radiant complexion and works to reduce internal stress using its royal jelly. Designed to stimulate the skin’s repair, the Fortifying Lotion is also optimised with the line’s signature BlackBee repair technology which works to boost youthfulness and minimise the effects of ageing.
In a nod to the creations of the Maison at the heart of its fragrances, Mathilde Laurent’s latest offering for Cartier is a trio of fine fragrances personifying the high jewellery synonymous with the house. Strikingly as beautiful as the pieces inspired by them, Les Épures de Parfum is a unisex ménage à trois of fresh florals and radiant notes. The first in the collection, Pur Muguet is the most modern of the collection with fresh and contemporary notes with Pur Kinkan embodying light citrusy notes and third in the line, Pur Magnolia is a breezy yet refined fragrance that naturally appeals to both man and woman. Designed to embody the sheer luxury associated with Cartier, these irresistible fragrances are housed in jewel-like flacons baring a floral print and small tie-knot.
