BY TERRY HYALURONIC HYDRA-CONCEALER
In 1992, Terry de Gunzburg created Touche Éclat for Yves Saint Laurent Beauty. It is the most successful concealer that has ever been launched. This spring, By Terry introduces Hyaluronic Hydra-Concealer, specifically designed to treat the delicate skin around the eye area with hyaluronic acid, as well as to deliver a flawless make-up finish.
Imperfections are blurred and signs of fatigue are erased. The non-caking formula ensures a long-lasting wear with weightless, natural coverage. The new concealer is available in six universal shades in the range from fair to dark.
FROM THE SAMURAI TO THE MODERN GINZA WOMAN
Shiseido pays tribute to Japan’s most cosmopolitan district by launching Ginza, a new fragrance that celebrates femininity in all its different facets and contrasts: subtle yet intense, delicate yet strong, wise yet passionate.
While in the West fragrance is considered a tool of seduction, in Japan it takes on a more personal and spiritual dimension. Long ago, the Samurai used fragrance and incense during Kodo ceremonies to give themselves courage. Indeed, their ancestral code of conduct called Bushido already encouraged them to believe in themselves and turn their personality into their magic power.
Composed by Karine Dubreuil and Maïa Lernout, Ginza is a a scent that combines the natural elegance of flowers and the power of sacred woods. It opens on a bright burst of luminous pomegranate and spicy pink peppercorns. At the heart of the bouquet, three varieties of jasmine reveal their most sumptuous facets. Petals of magnolia and freesia spin around in a joyful whirlwind, while Japanese orchid adds a touch of mystery to the blend of flowers. Suddenly, this floral sensuality takes on a more powerful dimension. At once strong and gentle, slightly camphoric, the sacred Japanese cypress brings remarkable character to the composition. Its most smouldering facet echoes the sandalwood’s depth and patchouli’s intensity.
BODY SKIN TIGHTENING CREAM
In the last few years, the conversation around body positivity has progressed. Nevertheless, cellulite remains a beauty problem that women face on a daily basis, even though it should be considered as a skin condition with hormonal or metabolic causes. An active lifestyle is the best solution to diminish the problem. You can also add an anti-cellulite cream to your daily beauty routine.
Le Sculpteur by Sisley targets the appearance of cellulite and promises a more firmed and toned skin. Pink Pepper oil, caffeine, cedrol, and white ginger extract as well as mandarin extract, andiroba oil and exopolysaccharide derived from plankton, promote sculpting and toning, gradually restoring balance to the figure for a more harmonious look.
With repeated application, imperfections are minimized, the appearance of cellulite is diminished, skin looks smoother and firmer.
Apply Le Sculpteur morning and evening to the desired areas (legs, thighs, buttocks, stomach, hips, arms, etc.) and massage in until completely absorbed.
INVISIBLE SUNSCREEN STICK
The new Shiseido Clear Suncare Stick SPF 50+ / UVA applies invisibly on any skin tone, meaning no white marks and no more stickiness. It can be applied both under and over make-up – and reapplied anytime, anywhere. With over 50% skincare formula ingredients, Shiseido Suncare protects and nourishes skin. Always bear in mind that sunscreen and no smoking are the most potent anti-aging remedies. Sunscreen helps to prevent skin damage that leads to wrinkles, dark spots, roughness, dullness and loss of resilience.
VEGAN ANTI-AGEING SERUM
Super Serum  by Nuxe incorporates the benefits of a cutting-edge green technology: 100% natural microfluidic encapsulation of fractionated botanical oils. The clean formula contains natural hyaluronic acid infused with thousands of botanical golden spheres.
The new serum stimulates youth mechanisms for skin and targets wrinkles, firmness and dark spots. Skin appears smoother, plumper and luminous.

The fractionated botanical oils are encapsulated one by one using a natural silicone-free technique. After being reassembled with a selection of their most precious fatty acids, they ensure perfect affinity with the skin.
ERBORIAN BEAUTY LAUNCHES 2021
Double-cleansing, the centuries-old Japanese and Korean skincare routine that more and more women are discovering in Europe and the US, involves the practice of using a cleansing oil and a water-based face wash. This daily ritual allows the active ingredients in a face serum or cream to penetrate more deeply.
This spring, French-Korean cosmetics brand Erborian introduces Centella Cleansing Oil and Centella Cleansing Gel. The ultra-fine cleansing oil removes make-up (including waterproof make-up), excess sebum and impurities, while helping to maintain the skin’s natural moisture.
