Most Luxurious Face Cream: Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Day Cream, $390

When it comes to searching for a reliable partner in your battle against the common signs of ageing, you deserve nothing less than extraordinary. You need a lavish face cream that not only helps fight wrinkles, sagging, dryness and dullness, but also makes the mere ritual of applying it utterly pleasurable.

Enter Lancôme’s Absolue Precious Cells Day Cream, an ultra-nourishing face cream with a sumptuous texture that forms a protective veil over skin to repair wrinkles, loss of elasticity and improve radiance. Part of the brand’s premium skincare line, Absolue Precious Cells, it bears the fruit of over 20 years of stem cell research, to keep skin cells functioning at peak condition for skin that stays youthful-looking over a longer period of time.

The key to this potent formula lies in the specially chosen rose petals that are harvested at dawn during summer months to preserve the potency of their natural oils. The rose oil extracted from these petals significantly enhances the skin’s cellular renewal and repair, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible over time. The sensorial cream melts into skin without any stickiness or greasiness, for skin that looks velvety-smooth from the moment you apply it in the morning to the end of a long day.

Available at all Lancôme counters
