In April 2013, Crabtree & Evelyn has launched a new fragrance bath and body collection – the Somerset Meadow Collection! The light green, fruity-floral scent of Somerset Meadow is an aromatic impression of a beautiful English landscape in bloom.

The scent of sparkling bergamot and dew-kissed blackberry buds is refreshing and tart, its juicy sweetness perfectly balanced with the bitter greens of ivy and fern. A heart of white blossoms, water lily and earthy geranium flourishes as if warmed by the morning sun. The scent of leaf, grass and fragrant petals are suffused by creamy clouds of musk, whilst willow and moss tether all the casually floating close to the skin and bring a soft, sensuous touch.

Elizabeth Arden Introduced Visible Whitening Skincare Line


Many weeks back, I was introduced to the new Elizabeth Arden Visible Whitening Skincare line during an one-to-one private coffee session and also get to try out the new range of products during a mini beauty facial treatment too. Launched in mid March 2013, Visible Whitening is a regimen-based skincare collection that controls melanin production at all five stages, while also enhancing skin’s ability to reflect light.

Do you know biological and environmental factors such as aging, hormones, inflammation and exposure to UV rays can produce excess melanin, leaving skin darker in tone? In addition, environmental factors can also decrease collagen and elastin and increase pore size, leaving skin thin and rough. As a result, light reflectivity is reduced and skin loses its vibrant, healthy glow.

To combat both issues, Research & Development at Elizabeth Arden has created Visible Whitening System technology, a scientific approach that utilizes a complex symphony of ingredients to address the visible effects of lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone including minimizing the look of hyper-pigmentation and maximizing skin’s radiance.

The Visible Whitening regimen features innovative ingredients including vitamin C derivatives and SpectraBright™, a potent botanical Hops extract that originated from France and acts on signal reaction from UV light and melanosome transportation, to prevent melanin production.
