One of the reasons Caudalie products are well-loved is because of the power of naturally sourced ingredients. It’s a beauty brand that honors nature and that’s why it’s been a consistent staple in our beauty cupboard. And with the upgraded Premier Cru collection now available on the market, our stressed skin couldn’t wait to sample these must-haves.

Tata Harper’s New Water-Lock Moisturizer
If there’s one basic beauty secret we’ve learned–it’s to moisturize every day! Moisturizing reduces skin problems and we’ve experienced it first hand. What’s so special about Tata Harper’s new water-lock moisturizer? If you’re looking for the ultimate hydration, this is a perfect choice. Tata Harper boasts a natural water-locking technology that delivers a sustained dose of skin-smoothing hydration where you need it most: the skin’s upper layers.

This supercharged moisturizer is really a great help for everyday use. It leaves your face with a healthy, breathable skin barrier and a flawless makeup-ready base that’s entirely free from toxins, artificial fragrances, and synthetic chemicals.

CHANEL’S THE CLEANSING COLLECTION
We cannot emphasize the importance of cleaning your face every day. And we’re glad Chanel understands how our skin is consistently covered with bacteria and pollutants throughout the day. They’ve taken the art of cleansing to the next level with “The Cleansing Collection”. Chanel launched three new cleansing products for all skin types. Each of the products contains formulas with different textures that are gentle on the skin. Le Gel is a gel-to-foam cleanser that combines anti-pollution power with an invigorating texture to deeply cleanse, purify and reduce oil shine, leaving skin with glowing freshness. On the other hand, the jelly-like Le Gommage scrub has naturally derived jojoba beads to gently remove impurities and dead skin cells. And lastly, the Le Masque is a creamy, non-drying clay mask that helps clarify, reduce the appearance of pores, absorb excess oil and replenish skin with essential vitamins. Begin your journey with these lush products towards a restored skin radiance.
The Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream-to-foam is priced at HKD $350. The Le Gommage for 75ml is priced at HKD $420. The Le Masque for 75ml is priced at HKD $460. The Anti-Pollution Micellar Cleansing Water is priced at HKD $350. The Anti-Pollution Cleansing Oil is priced at HKD $350.
Aesop’s Sublime Replenishing Night Masque
We’ve gotten used to wearing face masks the past few months. True that it has taken a toll on our face too but it’s vital that we follow the rules. That is why investing in Aesop’s Sublime Replenishing Night Masque is the key to avoiding skin irritations that come with mask usage. This lightweight gel-cream is comprised of generous doses of Vitamins B, C, E, and F. It also has a nourishing formulation offering sustained hydration with a soft, non-greasy finish, helping to replenish and strengthen the skin, and even its texture and appearance. Apply in the evening after a long day and you’ll be mesmerized by renewed skin feeling soft, supple, and nourished. Don’t forget to cleanse properly and tone your skin before application. The Sublime Replenishing Night Masque is packaged in a 60ml amber glass jar and is available in Hong Kong and all Aesop signature stores, department store counters, selected stockists, and Aesop Online. It’s priced at HKD $920 for 60ml.
Tatcha’s The Rice Wash
We spotted Tatcha on our beauty radar just a few months ago but it seems we can’t get enough of its cool products. We admire the delicate skin of Japanese women and found that this product is actually inspired by delicate grains of rice used as an early beauty ritual. Rice is in fact a vital source of vitamins A, B2, B12, and E, as well as moisturizing proteins that soften and boost the luminosity of hair and skin. Try Tatcha’s The Rice Wash and you won’t regret it. This purifying daily cream cleanser transforms into a gentle foam that washes away impurities without stripping skin. The Japanese rice powder naturally softens and boosts the skin’s luminosity, while moisture-binding Okinawa red algae and ceramide-replenishing Japanese brown algae are paired with hyaluronic acid and hadasei-3 to replenish essential moisture. It’s a wonderful way to keep your skin healthy. It’s priced at HKD $330 for 120ml.
