La Colline Advanced Vital Double Power Cellular Night Elixir


La Colline Advanced Vital Cellular Night Elixir

La Colline, one of the exclusive brands at SaSa, has recently launched a new anti-aging elixir – La Colline Advanced Vital Double Power Cellular Night Elixir – that is said to provide the skin with double needs and restore the mechanisms of cellular renewal during the night. A new addition to its Advanced Vital range, this new Double Power Cellular Night Elixir is retailing at S$549.00 for 30ml.

A preview event of this new elixir was recently held at Phillip Wain at Mandarin Orchard. In addition to this new Night Elixir, the other 4 Advanced Vital products are Cellular Vital Serum, Cellular Vital Cream, Cellular Vital Extra-Rich Cream and Cellular Vital Mask.

As the skin ages, it begins to suffer from a dual metabolic deficiency: reduced lipid production and loss of integrity of the cutaneous barrier which affects its capacity to retain moisture. This imbalance results in different types of reactivity such as discomfort, redness and dryness.

[Review] Laneige’s New Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream


Laneige Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream

A while ago, I was pleased to receive the new Laneige Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream. As the skin around our eyes is the first place to show visible signs of aging, I therefore can’t leave without a good eye cream in both day and night regimens.

The latest addition to Laneige’s anti-aging Perfect Renew range – Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream – is said to restore elasticity and deeply hydrate the eye area for younger-looking skin around the eyes.

Laneige Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream is formulated with the following key ingredients:

  1. Laneige Skin Charger Complex™ intensively revitalizes worn-out mitochondria (the cell’s natural energy powerhouse) in cells and reconstructs damaged skin skeletal protein, which promotes fuller and more supple-looking skin. It is also a multi-pronged, anti-aging solution to tackle signs of aging, such as wrinkles, dryness, dullness and lack of skin elasticity, restoring a natural buoyancy to skin’s collagen.
  2. Laneige Ceramide Repair Water, a skin-friendly water which combines moisture and ceramide to fortify the skin’s moisture barrier, provides advanced moisture care to deeply nourish the skin from within. The repair water fills in between the cells to draw a deeper penetration of active anti-aging ingredients, optimising nutrient absorption – the key to eliminating skin dryness and dullness.

It contains potent emollients such as Squalane, Jojoba Esters and cetearyl alcohol.
