Chanel Le Blanc Serum Healthy Light Creator
Formulated in the name of radiant skin and a rosy glow, Chanel’s Le Blanc Serum Healthy Light Creator provides the most complete brightening action ever developed by Chanel Research. Coming from a line that’s powered by the TXC molecule, which demonstrates the unprecedented ability to regulate melanin production and pigmentation—while preventing new ones from forming—this serum is further fortified by a new moisture-boosting active ingredient: gardenia fruit extract, which boosts nutrition and energy within the cells to nurture luminosity, resilience and better regeneration processes from within. A wonderfully sensorial step to add to your skincare daily (and nightly) regime, this fresh, aqueous oil-in-water texture sinks swiftly into the skin, instantly plumping, refining and protecting complexions, leaving skin soft, soothed and veiled with a light, calming floral fragrance.

Tom Ford Ebène Fumé EDP
There’s something about the smell of incense smoke that’s both spiritual and sensual (read: sinful) all at once. And the new Tom Ford Ebène Fumé EDP, infused with deep, dark woods and smoke, is a soul-heightening fragrance that’s almost intoxicating enough to get one down on their knees—for more reasons than one. Just imagines the earthy seduction of burning ebony wood, ancient essence of Palo Santo and animalic leather, fused with a splash of citrus, sumptuous roses and a touch of balsamic resin—mysterious, seductive and brimming with an air of transcendent opulence.

Fresh Floral Recovery Calming Mask
Combating signs of skin sensitivity is made easy with this potent overnight mask by Fresh. Think dullness, rough texture and inflamed bumps exacerbated by environmental and lifestyle factors—all of which can be eased thanks to the product’s soothing and restorative capabilities. “I’ve always been inspired by the natural power of flowers and wanted to put them on my face since the launch of Rose Face Mask in 2001,” Fresh founder, Lev Glazman, elaborates. “We hand-picked four flowers—passionflower, cornflower, peony, cherry blossom—for their ability to calm and soothe skin while also reducing visible redness. The result is a beautifully smooth, more even toned complexion.”

La Prairie White Caviar Essence Extraordinaire
La Prairie‘s White Caviar collection has a new source of illumination: the White Caviar Essence Extraordinaire. In 2019, the house’s scientists established the Equation of Light, identifying the key factors of skin luminosity—reflection and colour. Addressing the former in three ways, this prized elixir intensely increases skin hydration, delivers gentle exfoliating properties to slough away dead skin cells and smoothen skin texture, and infuses skin with Swiss Golden Caviar Extract, a signature caviar ingredient shown to support natural collagen production that plump and firm skin, thus boosting light reflection from renewed complexions. Colour is addressed by delivering La Prairie’s most potent illuminating molecule, Lumidose, deep into the skin. A powerful inhibitor of human tyrosinase—the enzyme responsible for the formation of melanin—this patented molecule helps to fade spots and even out skin tone at an impressive pace. This seriously skin-nourishing essence is also, of course, infused with the brand’s Exclusive Cellular Complex, an active ingredient that uses cutting-edge biotechnological research to give new life, vitality and energy back to the skin.

Oribe Hair Alchemy Fortifying Treatment Serum
“Prevention from breakage is important because unlike your skin, which can regenerate itself, hair breakage is irreversible,” says Michele Burgess, Executive Director of Product Development for Oribe Hair Care. Concocted for those with inherently weak hair—caused by poor haircare, chemical or heat damage, excessive brushing or friction (which can weaken strands over time)—Oribe’s new Hair Alchemy collection seeks to rebuild tensile strength and reinforce cuticle structure from the inside out, harnessing a curative blend of chia seeds, plant-based protein, bio fermented bamboo leaf, a moisture-charged hyaluronic acid complex and phytotechology. The Fortifying Treatment Serum instantly recharges and shields fragile, brittle tresses, creating a protective veil around each hair fibre to improve density and elasticity, protecting hair fall caused by breakage and external aggressors while helping hair stay healthy and luscious no matter the style.
