#1 Cle de Peau Beaute La Crème, $875 (30 ml)
Not just super nourishing for the skin, this cream also helps to normalise and optimise communication within the skin so that nutrients are better absorbed and utilised for ideal results. It deeply moisturises, blocks out environmental stress, smoothes out lines and wrinkles, and brightens and evens out the skin tone.
#2 Dior Prestige La Creme Texture Essentielle, $505 (50 ml)
A rose extract is behind the potency of this face beautifying cream. Dior’s Rose de Granville was created by horticulturists and the active molecules that help in skin regeneration were painstakingly extracted and put into this formula. The cream melts into the skin, refining, comforting and renewing it from within so it looks more flawless and youthful.
#3 La Mer Genaissance de la Mer The Eye & Expression Cream, $630 (15 ml)
This goes on silky and feeds skin with the brand’s signature Miracle Broth and other skin-loving ferments to accelerate skin renewal. This is meant for use around the eyes and on expression lines, and those who have tried it say the difference is visible – lines are visibly plumped up and skin is lifted and firmer. Lines around the eyes, dark circles, puffiness and crow’s feet don’t stand a chance.
#4 La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, $740 (50 ml)
Infused with the brand’s nourishing caviar extract, this powerhouse cream makes skin toned and silky soft, not to mention smooth to the touch. Its rich, creamy texture envelops skin, cancelling any sense of tightness or dryness and leaving it moisturised and with a youthful suppleness.
#6 Sisleya L’Integral Anti Age Cream, $590 (50 ml)
It strengthens skin against environmental stress such as smog, pollution, dry air-conditioning, but this cream goes above and beyond. It even counteracts genetic causes of ageing, thanks to active botanical ingredients such as rhatany and lady’s mantle extracts that smoothen lines and firm skin from within. The brand promises you’ll see results from using this cream daily in as fast as four weeks.
#7 SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Cream, $499 (50 g)
Want your skin to be firmer with a more radiant and clear skin tone at the same time? This richly moisturising cream promises to do that. It has high concentrations of Pitera, the brand’s signature ingredient that improves the overall appearance of skin, making it look crystal clear. Nine other skin-conditioning ingredients also help to intensely nourish and give skin a supple bounce.
