Creme de la Creme

Re­puted to be the cre­ator of the rst mod­ern-day beauty cream, iconic 154-year-old French brand, Crème Si­mon, is mak­ing its come­back with a lus­cious range of botan­i­cal-based sk­in­care.

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Crème Simon Special -

At the peak of its pop­u­lar­ity, Crème Si­mon was a house­hold name in Europe and the US. Founded by Joseph Si­mon in 1860, it was one of the most soughtafter French beauty brands and the choice of film stars like Brigitte Bar­dot. Its spe­cial­ity: plant-based prod­ucts with pleas­ing tex­tures that were a stark con­trast to the greasy beeswax creams of the day. It be­came a roar­ing suc­cess, gar­ner­ing awards and sell­ing ev­ery­where from New York to Shang­hai.

CLI­MATE COM­FORT

This year, Crème Si­mon is set to take Sin­ga­pore by storm. With its rich her­itage in beauty and sk­in­care, the brand is launch­ing a com­plete line of botan­i­cal sk­in­care de­signed to de­liver a pam­per­ing ex­pe­ri­ence amid the hus­tle and bus­tle of city life. Spe­cially cre­ated for our hot and hu­mid cli­mate, all the prod­ucts in this line boast light­weight for­mu­las that are free of parabens, sil­i­cones and al­co­hol. The for­mu­la­tions also utilise a unique ex­trac­tion process cre­ated by Joseph Si­mon, which pre­serves the plants’ fresh­ness and fra­grance with­out harm­ing the en­vi­ron­ment. The two star prod­ucts are Lym­phatic Con­tour­ing & Lift­ing Gel, $98 (75ml) and Crème Uni­verselle, $68 (30ml).

GET IN SHAPE

The V-shaped face is an Asian ob­ses­sion, but this French brand looks set to help us achieve it. Its Lym­phatic Con­tour­ing & Lift­ing Gel con­tains rose, iris and jas­mine ex­tracts, which are said to help oxy­genate skin and boost the elim­i­na­tion of tox­ins to de-puff and slim the face. At the same time, a com­bi­na­tion of seven flow­ers and plants, known as the Ac­tiv-Fleur Com­plex, gen­tly bright­ens skin, while an ex­clu­sive wheat oligosac­cha­rides com­plex is said to fur­ther boost the bright­en­ing ef­fect by in­hibit­ing melanin pro­duc­tion. The lux­u­ri­ous gel-to-oil for­mula rinses off thor­oughly to re­veal a clearer and brighter com­plex­ion, with more sharply de­fined con­tours.

UNI­VER­SAL POP­U­LAR­ITY

The orig­i­nal Crème Si­mon was known for its abil­ity to soothe dry­ness and ir­ri­ta­tion on any skin type. It was so re­spected that it was listed in the French Phar­ma­coepia – the of­fi­cial ref­er­ence book of medicines used by doc­tors. Now known as Crème Uni­verselle, the re­vamped for­mula is oil-free and in­cludes hyaluronic acid and shea but­ter to mois­turise, and vi­ta­min-rich aloe vera to soothe skin. Use it on chapped lips, dry el­bows and cracked heels, to calm the sting of sun­burn, or to mois­turise cu­ti­cles.

Spe­cially cre­ated for our hot and hu­mid cli­mate, all the Crème Si­mon prod­ucts in this line boast light­weight plant-based

for­mu­las that are free of parabens, sil­i­cones and al­co­hol.
