As we grow older, we see structural changes taking shape to our faces. The face’s volume gradually melts and migrates, its contours sag, and the oval shape becomes blurred.  Armed with expertise, a pioneer in lifting for twenty-five years, Laboratoires Lierac have identified the source of this problem and so the Lift Integral range was born.  This set includes the Lierac Lift Integral Sculpting Cream 50ml and the Lierac Lift Integral Eye Lift Serum for Eyes and Lips 15ml.

Eminence Cleanse and Glow Gift Set

The brand has released a vegan gift set which includes two of its top-selling products. Eminence products are high-end luxury products that come with a medium price tag. This is because a tiny amount of each product is needed. So, the products last longer (up to a year in some cases) so there’s no need for constant repurchasing – it’s an effective investment brand.  

This set includes the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser – this milky gel lightly lathers to slough off dead skin without manual exfoliation or over-stripping. The Lactic Acid Complex and mangosteen in this cleanser work together to restore a smooth, radiant complexion. 

It also includes the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant – this powder-to-foam exfoliant employs microgreens, stone crop and rice flour with adzuki powder to infuse skin with a youthful looking glow. With its light fizzing action, this revitalising formula gently invigorates the skin and removes impurities to reveal a beautiful, brighter looking complexion. No microbeads are used in the product either.
