Most creams these days are inspired by the ‘inspired by nature, led by science’ philosophy. Elemis and Lancome are some of them, and make it to our list of the best facial serums and creams to invest in.
Lets start with Elemis. Their tag line reads, ‘Defined by nature, Led by science. The folks over at Elemis believe in using the earth’s natural resources and combining it with ground-breaking technology in the science of beauty.
We love the Pro-Collagen Day cream by Elemis as the texture is fascinatingly non-oily and massages easily onto the skin. Hours into the day, you still do not feel a ‘sticky feeling ‘ on your skin.
We love and recommend. Elemis is available in the Middle East at basharacare.com, zanedo.com and Cleopatra’s Spa at Wafi.
Lancome’s Absolue Regenerating Collection:
Next is the Absolue Regenerating Collection by Lancome. We are in love with the Advanced Regenerating and Repairing Care SPF 15 (pictured below) for the face and their Eye Serum from the same collection. The difference in the appearance of our skin was noteworthy. The texture is smoother and more radiant. Like the old layer of the skin just came off.
The Advanced Regenerating and Repairing Care SPF 15 is enriched with green-tech molecules such as Pro-Xylane. This powerful ingredient is apparently responsible for the regeneration of the skin, thereby giving it a more youthful appearance.
Of course, as we always say, no cream in the world can give you flawless skin if your diet, exercise routine and happiness quotient is not in place!
We also recommend their Eye serum. Light (in texture) and fragrant.
The Absolue Regenerating Collection by Lancome is available at Bloomingdale’s at The Dubai Mall.
Institut Esthederm’s Hyaluronic Concentrated Cream and Serum:
We have talked extensively about this brand – Institut Esthederm. Combining Beauty (‘esthe’) and medicine (‘derm’ derived from derma), we love the brand’s philosophy of combining the two, thereby giving us the latest in beauty.
Institut Esthederm is available at leading pharamicies in Dubai.
The special thing (and the most obvious as well) about the Crystal Clear Anti Aging Serum is the ‘magic vibrating wand’ that is used to penetrate the serum into your skin using circular movements. Available exclusively at Citruss.tv in the Middle East, the brand originates from the UK. In 1995, Sharon Hilditch founded Crystal Clear working closely with leading scientists and skincare experts. Sharon pioneered microdermabrasion technology for professional salons And, in 1999, the Crystal Clear Professional Skincare range was launched; a range of applied anti-aging treatments.
So, the Crystal Clear Anti Aging Serum goes inside the cap (pictured above). Ensure that you fill only about 3/4 full or else the serum will spill over. Screw it back on and press the grey button (pictured above) to start the wand vibrator. The purpose of the wand is to stimulate the muscles in the face while the serum is deeply massaged into the skin.
We like this magical wand and would recommend that you try it.
The Natura Bisse Diamond day & night cream is formulated with a magnetic active ingredient called Bio-Magnet Nanosomes. This particular range is especially designed for women who are 30-plus, to prevent premature aging and to provide a lifting effect.
We had one of our beauty expert friend try it over two weeks and this is what she had to say:
‘My skin felt firmer and more radiant, not to mention, the pigmentation on my skin reduced by at least 60 percent.’- Sonakshi Behl, 32, Dubai.
What’s also noteworthy is the amazing packaging that the Natura Bisse Diamond cream comes in. It stands tall, with pride, from an elegant black cardboard box, as if saying, ‘try me, you won’t regret it.
Natura Bisse is available at Bloomingdale’s at The Dubai Mall.
Guerlain’s Blanc de Perle Hydrating Cream is something that we just cannot get enough of. This one is more of a prevent-the-major-wrinkles-from-coming-on cream as it is a hydrating cream. So, what it basically does is inject your skin with active detoxifying ingredients. If you are expecting wrinkles to go away with this cream, don’t. Invest in it as a supplement to your day / night routine. We love using it at night as the texture and feel is so smooth, that it feels luxurious to lather the skin at night.
The brightening part of the cream? Well, I have to say that it did add a bit of luminosity to the skin. But, more than the brightening effects of the cream, we say go for it because you want to hydrate dull skin.
Guerlain’s Blanc de Perle Hydrating Cream is available at Bloomingdale’s at The Dubai Mall.
