The colour red promises to bring good fortune and joy in the new year, and this bottle of revitalizing essence from Shiseido will certainly make your skin look joyful. The treatment lotion conditions the skin, revitalizing it, and leaving your complexion feeling as soft as a flower petal with a radiating glow.
Nothing is more fitting to wear in celebration than the perfect red lipstick. Shiseido’s line of Perfect Rouge Lipsticks are richly pigmented and come in a range of red shades so you can find the perfect match for your unique skintone.
Start off the new year with a fresh new scent! Lancôme’s Miracle Eau de Parfum is a vibrant, sparkling fragrance that opens like the dawning of a new day with notes of Lychee and Freesia. At its heart, notes of Magnolia, Jasmine, Ginger and Pepper spice things up, while warm base notes of Amber and Musk envelop the senses.
This line of opulent gold skincare products make a luxe gift or a special treat for yourself. Choose the Absolue Premium BX Replenishing Rejuvenating Day Cream, and it will help to deeply replenish moisture and improve the skin’s firmness and luminosity around the delicate eye area.
Achieve a bright, radiant complexion thanks to this replenishing cleansing oil. Its nourishing formula with omega 3, 6, 9 and vitamin E will remove all impurities and makeup, leaving your skin feeling clean, soft and smooth.
Science will be on your side with these golden capsules from Elizabeth Arden. They hold the restorative power of Ceramides and essential lipids to help strengthen the skin’s barrier against the visible signs of time: fine lines and wrinkles.
Put your best face forward by making skincare a priority this year. Try Bioderma’s Hydrabio line: it will pamper your face with a generous dose of hydration, while also creating a glowing, smooth base for makeup application.
