Muguet 2018 by Guerlain
Guerlain celebrates the 110th anniversary of its fragrance line, Muguet, with a limited edition fragrance that pays tribute to a lucky flower, lily of the valley. To make this version even more special, Guerlain asked Maison Guillemette to design the Bee bottle, which is now adorned with organza petals linked by two bells that hug the bottle’s curves.
Frosted for the occasion, the Bee bottle contains the Muguet note, reinterpreted by Thierry Wasser for 2018, with bergamot, jasmine and rose accents.

Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra Anti-Ageing Cream and Serum by Lancôme
Multi-tasking, stress and climate change are factors that cause what Lancôme calls "modern ageing". To combat its effects on the skin, the brand has launched two products as part of its Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra line: the Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra Full Spectrum Anti-Ageing Cream and Serum.
These comprehensive treatments combat all signs of skin ageing including firmness, wrinkles, and dark spots. The skin is smoothed, firmed and radiant with an even complexion.
