The current crop of new beauty takes its cues from Mother Nature. . . and so should you.
The Lancôme Rose
Each glossy jar (a hefty 1.7 ounces) of Absolue L’Extrait Regenerating Ultimate Elixir (212 872 2740) contains up to two million Lancôme rose native cells, cultivated from the Lancôme rose — an actual rose that is grown in France & revered for its restorative properties. A compelling fusion of nature and science, L’Extrait boasts exceptional results in the reduction of between-the-brow-11′s & zig-zags at the mouth, forehead, and eyes. Is this new regenerative treatment better than your current go-to? Well, when put to the test in clinical trials, Absolue L’Extrait Regenerating Ultimate Elixir outperformed Vitamin C, a leading wrinkle reducing staple for many. Perhaps it’s time to try something new!
Essential & Plant Oils
Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum (212 872 8842) flawlessly prepares skin for makeup with a nutritious cocktail of 28 combined vitamins, essential oils, and plant oils. The multi-purpose primer does double duty as a treatment serum with skin healing ingredients like clove to calm, rosemary to tone, and hazelnut to firm. Is Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum right for you? If your skin craves intense hydration & you love a good multi-tasker – yes!
Amore Pacific Green Tea Treatment Oil (212 872 2770) improves skin’s overall texture and vitality with just a few soothing drops. The highly concentrated treatment elixir delivers a rich cocktail of Vitamin E and Green Tea Omega Ceramide — skin is instantly soothed & balance is restored.

White Tea Leaves
At the heart of Kilian Bamboo Harmony (212 872 2581) lies a lavish bouquet of white tea leaves kissed with a smoldering hint of spice. Woven throughout, moss and fig impart a touch of sensuality. In search of a delicate warm weather scent? This luminous, zesty perfume gets the nod.
Chantecaille Eau de Rose de Mai Pure Rosewater (212 872 2725) is 99.9% botanically based. Harvested by hand in Grasse, France, Rose de Mai helps to soothe, heal, and moisturize inflamed skin. The calming mist contains only two simple ingredients: Petals of Eau De Rose de Mai and water from artesian well. It’s the ultimate natural treat. When to spritz? . . . after cleansing, before makeup application, after makeup application, when skin feels taut, or anytime your want to treat your face to an uplifting boost.
