1. The Ultimate S Cream, SULWHASOO

Sulwhasoo’s decades of expertise in harnessing the power of ginseng for skincare (an intricate 15-step process of extracting the active ingredient Syringaresinol from ginseng berries) has culminated in its latest anti-ageing concoction.

The Ultimate S Cream is powered by the resulting Ginseng Berry SR™ that promises a transformative effect on the skin. The formulation is designed to respond to skin temperature for instant smooth absorption into the skin. Consistent use of the product for at least eight weeks has been shown to reduce the signs of skin ageing and boost the removal of skin impurities induced by ageing. The proceeding effect encourages healthy skin cell growth, increases collagen levels and revives skin vitality.

2. EGF Power Serum, BIOEFFECT

Targeting the epidermal growth factor (EGF) that’s found naturally in the skin, Bioeffect’s EGF Power Serum is scientifically crafted to aid in its functions. EGF essentially keeps skin looking young and healthy by being part of the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. A definite boost since EGF diminishes with age.

The EGF Power Serum is packed with 12 pure ingredients including Bioeffect’s flagship growth factors, Barley EGF and Barley KGF—the latter is what maintains the health of the skin barrier. The serum is designed to support the skin barrier function and significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation. At the same time, it increases skin thickness and density to give that youthful appearance everyone desires.

3. Dior Prestige Le Nectar Premier, DIOR BEAUTY

Dior is known for its Rose de Granville—the first rose created for use in cosmetic skincare—named after the garden of its founder. Now, for the first time, the house has developed a serum to concentrate the buds of the rose in order to target the triggers of ageing at its source as well as correct visible signs of ageing.

The Rosapeptide Premier is a concentration of the power of these buds that is now infused into the Dior Prestige Le Nectar Premier serum. It’s formulated to improve the skin’s volume, texture and radiance, enhancing the outline of the face and giving the appearance of plumper and denser skin. And as with a growing rose, the idea is that the skin can bloom into its own youthful radiance.

4. #3 The Enriched Eye Crème SPF15, RATIONALE

Rationale’s products are founded on dermatological science and began as a line that was only available through professional skincare experts. Each product is full of potent active ingredients with the complete Rationale experience, comprising a uniquely prescribed combination of products.

The #3 The Enriched Eye Crème SPF15 both nourishes and protects the delicate eye area during the day. Vital skin connective tissues such as collage and elastin are restored with the help of zinc and iron oxide technologies combined with botanical extracts and other active ingredients. Peptides and amino acids help to protect the area from the sun and other environmental stressors, while topical nutrients help to brighten and visibly revitalise the area, so you don’t look tired.

5. Supremÿa At Night The Supreme Anti-Aging, SISLEY

As its name suggests, the Supremÿa At Night The Supreme Anti-Aging by Sisley works at night, when cellular and skin regeneration occurs naturally while we sleep and rest. This process, however, weakens as we age. Sisley’s formulation is designed to work especially well in the dark, with the aim of boosting the natural regeneration process.

The core of the product lies in its Fundamental Regeneration Complex that aids in intense and optimal anti-ageing regeneration. The lightweight formulation helps to resynchronise the fundamental mechanisms of skin regeneration while helping to recover from the constant damage the skin experiences every single day. Consider it as a detox that unlocks the natural processes of the skin, helping to prepare it for a new day.

6. Orchidée Impériale Rich Cream, GUERLAIN

Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale skincare range is the brand’s most renowned and luxurious line based around the orchid. Guerlain’s researchers have developed two new extracts from the flower—the orchid oleo-concentrate and orchid water—that are part of its new Rich Cream.

The new formulation targets the skin’s most fundamental needs: hydration, nutrition and regeneration. The Rich Cream does this by mimicking the epidermis’ natural architecture so that it’s easily absorbed by the skin. The orchid-rich ingredients then activate and extend the skin’s cell longevity by strengthening cell vitality and increasing regenerative properties by a factor of five. This means that the skin defies ageing-caused degeneration while also receiving immediate nutrition.
