SK-II Essence

In the 1970s, SK-II scientists noticed that a group of sake brewers’ hands had not aged as quickly as the rest of their skin. After years of research, the team isolated a single yeast strain – now named PITERA – and began to use it as a miracle ingredient throughout the brand’s products.

The Facial Treatment Essence is SKII’s signature product and most-awarded bestseller – and you can probably guess why. The Facial Treatment Essence has over 90% Pitera™, the miracle ingredient discovered over 30 years ago. The light, innovative formula gently exfoliates the face and helps moderate the skin’s surface renewal cycle. In just 14 days, sunspots are less visible, the appearance of wrinkles are reduced, and skin texture is refined. Let this essence be your invisible beauty secret (that happens to be used by millions of others) and revel in the compliments headed your way!

La Mer Creme de la Mer Moisturizer

The famous story goes that Doctor Max Huber, a physicist, suffered a lab burn which prompted him to explore new ways to heal the skin. Twelve years later (and over 6,000 experiments completed) the legendary Miracle Broth was born, which soothed and restored the skin like never before. Named after the sea, La Mer is iconic in hollywood and beyond as the pinnacle of effective skin formulas.

Clarins Double Serum

Clarins is the epitome of iconic French skincare. Established in 1954, the brand’s formulas have been perfected (and loved) across generations. Clarins continues to enhance and enrich its products to this day, and we love the company’s spirit of continual improvement as much as we do its signature Double Serum.

Clarins Double Serum is the product that you, your grandmother, your father, and everyone else can and should use. It’s that good.

The golden ratio of these oils mixed with water boosts the skin’s vital functions, making it ideal for literally anyone who is interested in healthy skin. The lightweight texture penetrates deep into skin without leaving it oily, instantly shrinking poring and elevating radiance. Added bonus? This super serum is suitable for all skin types.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

When it comes to beauty brands, Estée Lauder is as classic as they come. The niece of a chemist, the brand’s namesake founder was trained in the art of face creams from an early age. Want to try something from this beauty legend? The Advanced Night Repair collection has become famous in its own right.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Shu Uemura was a Japanese make-up artist and founder of the cosmetics line that bears his name. A native of Tokyo, Shu Uemura launched his first cosmetics in 1960. The product – a cleansing oil – left skin cleaner than soap could while also moisturizing. That cleansing oil is a Japanese beauty essential to this day. His beauty philosophy was that skin care should be the most important aspect of beauty and cosmetics. By the 80’s, Shu Uemura Cosmetics was a star in international beauty markets.

A silicone pad is situated in a precise "mushroom" shape, which provides a protective edge for unmatched safety (no lost lashes here!) This award-winning eyelash curler delivers optimal results for all eye shapes.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler

Thought of by many as the pinnacle of luxury beauty, La Prairie traces its origins back to a famous anti-aging cellular therapy clinic in Switzerland. Today, it spins a tale of timeless luxury and indulgence, and claims the power of its products come from four special ingredients: gold, platinum, white caviar, and caviar.
