Extracts de Cologne from Roger&Gallet
(See featured image)
This iconic French brand has finally landed in Hong Kong and we are loving discovering all their products. People outside of France will most likely know the brand from their very famous soap that make perfect souvenirs! They have now released a few new Extracts de Cologne, and our picks are Rose Mignonnerie and Magnolia Folie. Blending two different feminine flowers—fresh and lively roses, and the soft and delicate magnolias—these new blends are as beautiful in their scent as they are in presentation.
Roger&Gallet is available in Harbour City.

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation
Our favorite cruelty free luxury beauty brand Hourglass Cosmetics, has finally released their first liquid foundation and it’s fantastic! Available in 16 shades, it goes on easily and all you need is half a pump. It’s a highly concentrated liquid foundation which delivers full coverage and applies like a dream. If you are familiar with their stick foundation, you will notice that this has quite a different texture and coverage. However, the difference is that this liquid foundation boasts a 24-hour wear and is waterproof. This innovative, weightless formula applies like second-skin, creating a smooth and flawless complexion without drying out the skin.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation retails for HKD $500 and is available at Lane Crawford in Times Square, IFC, and Canton Road or online at www.lanecrawford.com.hk

bareMinerals Ageless Genius Firming & Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream
bareMinerals have been making fantastic products for years and their vegan Ageless Genius series is no different. Their Firming and Wrinkle smoothing eye cream is a rich, anti-aging eye cream product that is perfect to use after cleansing for both day and night time. To apply, gently pat a small amount onto the eye area until absorbed and apply your moisturizer or the Ageless Genius Serum afterwards. It’s quite a rich formula made with a blend of potent botanical extracts so a little goes a long way. The shea butter in the eye cream is perfect to help hydrate and protect the delicate skin around the eye area. After a few weeks you should notice the eye area feeling softer and more hydrated with an improvement in the dark circles under the eye. This is due to the antioxidants and AHA/glycolic acid this formula contains. Designed for all skin types, it’s oil-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, fragrance-free and phthalate-free and of course is not tested on animals. The bareMinerals Firming & Wrinkle Smoothing eye cream retails for HKD $330.
