Luxury moisturisers

 trendy beaute homme juin 2016

Moisturising your skin is the basic essential for preserving its youthfulness. When that daily gesture is done with a superb product, your skin will lap it up.


Eaux de couture

Haute couture skin care High-end Swiss brand Valmont has added a new, hybrid treatment to its moisturising ritual. The Moisturizing Serumulsion is a major innovation, condensing the power of a serum and the comfort of a cream, to use on its own or in combination with other treatments such as the Brume Préparatrice mist (face and body).


Perfusion de vitalité
Vitality boost. Chanel’s Hydra Beauty line uses a patented magnetic water complex to achieve optimal moisture retention within skin cells. New additions to the line are an eye contour gel, a quick-acting balm called Hydra Beauty Flash and a collectible item*, the Very Moist lotion for a morning and evening skin moisture boost.


Fontaine de jouvence
Fountain of youth. They say the Japanese have four different words for a beautifully moist skin. Dior has followed suit, adding four new products to its Hydra Life range: Jelly Sleeping Mask with an ultra-cool texture, the feather-light Water BB tinted aqua-gel, and one-shot masks to take with you anywhere (limited edition).
