Holy grail skin care must-haves you need to know about

Say hello to the coveted complexion helpers that are a beauty buff’s holy grail.

What does it take for a product to become the crème de la crème of skin care? An effective and innovative formula that delivers consistent, noticeable results. Period. From a skin-quenching hydrator to an eye treatment that disguises a lack of beauty sleep, plus a calming aid for sensitive skin, these six products are worth seeking out.

For a youthful complexion

This chic 2-in-1 takes a double-pronged approach to promoting a radiant, youthful-looking complexion. Clarins Double Serum delivers both potent hydration and nourishing oils, and it’s packed with plant extracts, including the recent addition of turmeric, to help target signs of aging. The two-phase formula is tried and true but now the bottle offers a new twist: use the adjustable dial to customize your application every time.

For revitalized eyes

Loyalists to Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing Eye Cream appreciate its 360° approach to eye care. Signs of fatigue, puffiness and wrinkles around the eyes are all diminished by the indulgent formula that’s suitable for any skin type. The star ingredient, Grand Rose extracts, helps promote a revitalized, refreshed eye area.

For resilient skin

Your skin is always on the clock and that work requires support. Calling on the antioxidant muscle of reishi mushroom and iris root extracts to defend against daily environmental damage, Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate helps to strengthen skin, fast. In clinical tests, skin’s moisture retention rate was improved by 28% after just a single week of use.

For a wide-awake look

Your eyes tell the world a lot. And sometimes the message is: I didn’t sleep much last night. But Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery can help rewrite that narrative. The lightweight gel cream addresses puffiness and fine lines, brightens dark circles, hydrates for 24 hours and prevents free radical damage.

For a splash of moisture

From extremely dry to very oily, dehydration can strike any skin type. An all-access pass to replenished hydration levels, Vichy Minéral 89 Fortifying & Hydrating Daily Skin Booster made a big splash with its breakthrough formula that pairs 89% Mineralizing Thermal Water with hydrating hyaluronic acid. It’s now available in a larger 75ml bottle so you can soak up more of the fortifying, hydrating, plumping and toning action.

For multi-use soothing

Anyone with sensitive skin should tap into the benefits of Avène Thermal Spring Water. Captured directly at its source in Southern France and bottled in a sterile environment that preserves it soothing and softening properties, this gentle mist can be used to calm skin and reduce redness after removing makeup, hair removal or working out. Plus, stash a bottle on your WFH desk for a comforting midday reset. Très versatile, non?
