Check out our top picks from brands like La Mer, Sothys and Marc Jacobs Beauty below.
La Mer The Concentrate
Dubbed the miracle worker, The Concentrate is a potent serum with an ultra-concentrated form of the La Mer’s celebrated Miracle Broth™. Formulated by Dr. Max Huber – who spent years experimenting on the self-regenerating properties of giant sea kelp to sooth the burns he suffered in the lab – this powerful serum promises to help soothe, strengthen and stabilize skin against daily stressors and irritants. Available now at La Mer stores nationwide.
Sothys Silhouette Body Care
With so many skincare products for the face, body care is often overlooked – but Sothys wants to change that with its Silhouette Body Care. The newly launched duo consists of a body serum and body scrub designed to help maintain a toned, smooth and youthful-looking body. The exfoliating scrub eliminates dead skin cells to leave you with smooth and refined skin, whereas the body serum helps to lift and firm the skin while boosting collagen and the body’s detoxification system. Available exclusively at all SOTHYS salons nationwide from 1st May 2019.
Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX Limited Edition
Designed to restore the skin’s balance and deflect the five signs of aging – resilience, vitality, nourishment, clarity and elasticity, this first-step and care serum is Sulwhasoo’s answer to your anti-aging skincare needs. This month, the South Korean brand is unveiling a limited-edition golden chrome version of the serum to elevate its appeal. It's a combination of science, beauty and elegance in a bottle. Available at selected Sulwhasoo outlets from 22 April 2019 onwards.
