Crystallized beauty with Harrods and Swarovski.

Crystallized beauty with Harrods and Swarovski.
Shopping for a new face cream can often be tedious; after all, how many products do we have to look at before we’ve found The One? An important part of shopping for a new lotion or potion is to assess the packaging before making your purchase.
The current exclusive and limited edition Swarovski Elements beauty collection for Harrods will not fail to amaze you. Forget that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and swoon over these Swarovski Element crystal encrusted beauty products instead.
Not only will they look amazing in your bathroom or on your dresser table, but they will make your skin beautiful too. Perfect.
This Dr Sebagh serum supreme maintenance is made with nourishing ingredients such as resveratrol (praised for its anti-aging properties), vitamin C, three anti-ageing peptides, Hyaluronic Acid and mineral radiance booster to leave you with silky smooth skin.
The formula is oil-free and light, and won’t clog your pores so it’s great to wear underneath your make up.

Get perfect skin with this Sisley powder compact. It’s ideal to carry in your handbag for on-the-go touch ups and will help your skin retain its moisture and colour throughout the day. Use after you’ve applied your foundation for a matt complexion. The encrusted lid detailing is divine.

Beauty doesn’t get more luxurious than La Prairie. This exciting limited edition of their skin caviar looks too beautiful to use (well almost).
This rich moisturiser will ultimately pamper your skin, leaving it hydrated and firm. It also claims to improve your skin’s elasticity and tone. Another super ingredient is the caviar extract (rich in protein) which aims at replenishing your skin to make it super smooth.

And now for the perfumes…
This Scent of Peace perfume from Bond No.9 is encased in a remarkable purple velvet bottle, which is covered with 2,500 shimmering Swarovski crystals. With tempting notes of grapefruit, blackcurrant, lily of the valley of musk, it’s definitely a fragrance to get you noticed.

This limited edition of Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium perfume is presented in an elegant glass bottle, which has been revamped with 3,700 Swarovski crystals. The spicy fragrance is powerful and luxurious; what more could you want from a perfume?

Spray this signature Robert Piguet Fracas perfume for an instant lift. It’s a sexy and feminine perfume with notes of bergamot, mandarin, jasmine and violet. The crystallized stopper makes it a real stand out piece.

The History of Whoo Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence gets an update

The History of Whoo’s eighth edition of its Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence offers a regal solution to tired skin with its royalty-inspired formulation and design.
Think of the skin of ancient Korean empresses – and no matter their age, clear and lustrous complexions always come to mind. For these women of the royal courts, the art of ageing gracefully was guided by medicinal remedies made from powerful herbs to retain their youthful glow.
These time-honoured imperial beauty secrets have been thankfully preserved for today’s women by The History of Whoo. The Korean luxury skincare brand brings together modern science with oriental medicine for efficacious formulas that support skin renewal and self-regeneration.
One of its signature lines is the award-winning Bichup range that treats signs of skin ageing by activating skin to heal from within. It mirrors traditional Chinese medicine with products that target the root causes of skin issues and trigger cells for self-repair. One of the range’s most popular bestsellers is the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence, which is known for its ability to reawaken skin vitality.
Now, The History of Whoo has launched the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence White Celadon 8th Edition. The latest iteration adopts precious porcelain as its inspiration to convey elegance and royal art.
The essence’s gorgeous bottling looks every bit an imperial potion. It is adorned with blooming peonies, often thought of as the king of blooms and are not just beautiful but symbolise nobility. Royal courts of the past would use folding screens painted with the flowers during celebratory rituals and important rites to amplify the stately ambience. As a homage to this custom, motifs of colourful peonies are now showcased on a bottle that resembles ivory porcelain. It is topped with a cap in the brand’s signature gold and features a border of an intricate red floral pattern as a striking juxtaposition.
The gentle booster-type essence from the Bichup line is designed to seamlessly fit into any existing skincare routine. Like an elixir for preventative premature ageing, it sinks deep into pores to activate blood circulation and regulates qi, or the vital energy that guides your physical and mental processes. As a first-step essence, it instantly awakens the inner radiance and vitality of fatigued skin that is exposed to environmental stressors from urban living and harmful UV rays.
The brand’s signature Gongjinbidan complex lies at the heart of the Bichup First Moisture Anti-Aging Essence. The ancient formula, which is said to have been used in the Korean royal courts, comprises six main luxury oriental herbs, including deer antler, angelica root and cornelian cherries, that balance your yin and yang. It also contains Cheongsimbidan to boost skin detoxification, and the medicinal and herbal formula of Gyeongoakbidan to delay premature ageing and protect the skin barrier.
Its other star ingredient, the Haeulhwan complex – made from a mixture of berries, pine trees, goji berries, six-year-old ginseng, foxgloves and wild yam – is encapsulated in microbeads. These penetrate deep into pores upon application to improve radiance and qi, while reducing water retention. The essence also offers a positive ripple effect, as it boosts the absorption of subsequent skincare products and improves their efficacy. Working in tandem, they optimise skin health and recovery to rejuvenate skin from deep within.
Similar to a toner, the essence is best applied right after cleansing in the mornings and evenings. Pour a desired amount onto your palm, then tap and massage the fluid gently onto your entire face. Its lightweight texture, while thicker than a toner, absorbs rapidly and coats skin in a soft veil of moisture throughout the day.

Rihanna’s first-ever fragrance for Fenty Beauty is launching this month – here’s what we know

After clothing, makeup and then skincare, a perfume release was only the next logical step in Rihanna’s universe. Here’s what we know about her newest launch – Fenty Eau de Parfum.
Following weeks of teasing and rumours, more information on her first perfume for her Fenty beauty line just released, and we’re already stoked. After all, if her current beauty line-up is anything to go by, this scent will fly off the shelves too. 
Housed in a sheer brown bottle, a colour significant to Rihanna not only because it’s her favourite colour, but also because it’s “a rich colour that really represented all genders from across all walks of life,” the Fenty Eau de Parfum is set to be a favourite amongst both men and women.

The fragrance was also designed to be a sensorial experience from the minute you laid eyes on it. “If I’m going to make a fragrance that represents me, even the body language of the bottle needs to marry that. So, I wanted something brown, but also transparent – so you could see the liquid and the fragrance you’re about to experience,” Rihanna added.
As a true jet-setter, the multi-hyphenate took inspiration from all of her favourite places, including Bridgetown in Barbados, Grasse in France, as well as New York, Paris, and Los Angeles. Expect complex notes of magnolia, musk, tangerine and blueberry to shine though, accented by hints of Bulgarian rose absolute and geranium. 

This floral and woodsy number isn’t quite like the other fragrances she’s lent her name to before, and that’s partially thanks to Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, the master perfumer for Louis Vuitton who worked with her directly on this. He describes the scent as “simple in terms of construction with fantastic ingredients.” Because there’s no dry down, the scent also doesn’t need time to fully evolve, he adds.
The Fenty Eau de Parfum is slated to drop online on 10 August 2021 for US$120 (HK$933).
