Luxurious anti-aging skincare is one of my favourite things in beauty, and was what spurred me to start blogging years ago. There are lots of brands out there that position themselves as the purveyors of the finest, and there are brands that just do extremely well across the grain. Estée Lauder often gets overlooked precisely because it seems so mainstream, but I was recently blown by how amazing and luxurious their top-of-the-line offerings can be. Inspired by the magic and power of nature’s dew, and harnessing the powers of exotic florals, Estée Lauder presents us with the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection.

Kanebo completely revamped its product line last year, including both makeup and skincare. The entire brand philosophy now revolves around the concept of Chrono Beauty, changing rhythm of the body and skin at different times of the day and year. By understanding how the skin condition has evolved, Kanebo believes we can reduce the signs of aging and mature gracefully by taking proper care accordingly. The skincare range is rather extensive, but today, I’d like to give you a peek at a few specialized items that were recently launched to address concerns of sagging and wrinkling.

I’ve been considering several treatments of late, to bring back the youthful cheekbones and sculpted jawline… so imagine my excitement when the latest La Prairie innovation promises to do all that without any poking needles!

I recently had a test done to check on my skin’s “age”, and I was shocked to find that my skin had aged 9 years in the past 5 years. And the key reason for that was a drastic drop in firmness and radiance, and increased wrinkles. It was inevitable, given I’m sleeping much lesser now than before, and my skin is being exposed to much more stresses with increased air travel. So I finally decided to break into the new Clarins Multi-Active Day and Night moisturizer duo to target those early signs of aging!

I love every single La Mer moisturizer there has ever been released, and have managed to find a use for every one of them. With only one face, it is almost unfathomable to find an occasion for yet another moisturizer, and yet… La Mer has managed to surprise me yet again with its new Moisturizing Matte Lotion!
