Quenches the skin

Per­fect for this time of year – when the heat is still on, but the hu­mid­ity is a lit­tle bit lower. The new Cal­en­dula Serum-In­fused Wa­ter Cream by Kiehl’s is rich with con­cen­trated Cal­en­dula Serum and is suit­able for nor­mal-to-oily skin. In­spired by the com­pany’s Cal­en­dula Herbal-Ex­tract Toner, this weight­less wa­ter cream con­tains con­cen­trated Cal­en­dula Flower Ex­tract and hun­dreds of mi­cronized Cal­en­dula petals. Upon ap­pli­ca­tion, this unique, light­weight mois­tur­izer pro­vides a burst of sooth­ing hy­dra­tion for fresh, ra­di­ant skin. Use it for a week, say the com­pany’s ex­perts, and the cream will vis­i­bly even skin tone and boost ra­di­ance. In two weeks, it will help vis­i­bly re­duce red­ness, im­prove un­even tex­ture, dull skin and dry fine lines, soft­en­ing skin im­me­di­ately with last­ing 24-hour hy­dra­tion. I love it! NIS 219 for 50 ml. and NIS 339 for 100 ml. avail­able in Kiehl’s stores in shop­ping malls.

For men who care

L’oreal Paris launched a new line of prod­ucts for men – Men Ex­pert, of­fer­ing high-qual­ity skin care, beard care, deodor­ant and shower gel specif­i­cally de­signed for men. Har­ness­ing the power of hard-work­ing in­gre­di­ents, com­bined with ad­vanced sci­ence and ex­pert re­search into men’s skin – the com­pany launched six dif­fer­ent lines to suit dif­fer­ent needs. With in­ter­na­tional pre­sen­ters such as singer-song writer Adam Noah Levine (Ma­roon 5), and ac­tor Niko­laj Coster Wal­dau (Game of Thrones), the prod­ucts mar­keted here, priced be­tween NIS 21.90 and NIS

54.90, were specif­i­cally ad­justed to suit the needs of Is­raeli men. In the col­lec­tion, there are the ba­sic prod­ucts such as hy­drat­ing and cleans­ing gels, hy­drat­ing creams, Bar­ber Club beard-groom­ing prod­ucts and Pure Char­coal line for treat­ing black­heads and other im­per­fec­tions.

Nat­u­rally good for you

Vis­it­ing the duty-free shops dur­ing the hol­i­days, I came across a new and ex­clu­sive Is­raeli cos­metic brand called Liv Unique. The brand boasts us­ing only ve­gan and or­ganic in­gre­di­ents in their anti-ag­ing prod­ucts. The molec­u­lar, ac­tive in­gre­di­ents are highly con­cen­trated and mi­croen­cap­su­lated, and are thus kept fresh un­til used. The brand boasts us­ing in­gre­di­ents that were clin­i­cally proven to be ef­fec­tive, among them stem cells of a Swiss ap­ple tree trunk, soy bean growth hor­mones and an ac­tive vi­ta­min C mol­e­cule, com­bined with a new molec­u­lar-in­ject­ing tech­nique that de­liv­ers the ac­tive in­gre­di­ents di­rectly into the skin cells. Among the items now avail­able at duty-free shops are detox cleanser ($32), pure vi­ta­min E anti-ox­i­dant ($64), face- and neck-lift­ing serum ($79.90), mul­ti­vi­ta­min mois­tur­iz­ing cream ($79.90). Lift­ing eye com­plex ($79.90) and an in­vig­o­rat­ing cof­fee peel­ing scrub for the body ($39.90). My star prod­uct is the vi­ta­min E pure anti-ox­i­dant that can be used when and where needed, to treat scars, very dry spots, or mixed with your reg­u­lar serum or mois­tur­izer for in­ten­sive care ($64).


Pro­fes­sional cos­met­ics com­pany

Gigi has added new and fan­tas­tic prod­ucts to its pop­u­lar Ci­ty­nap line that fo­cus on bat­tling en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­age to the skin, es­pe­cially for those liv­ing in the city. The new prod­ucts – a hy­drat­ing spray and a serum – join the day cream, night cream peel­ing soap and sleep­ing mask al­ready in the col­lec­tion. The Fresh Wa­ter Mist in­stantly re­freshes the skin, adding en­ergy and vi­tal­ity. The mist ab­sorbs quickly and acts as a makeup primer or as a re­fresher dur­ing the day. En­riched with vi­ta­mins, anti-ox­i­dants and calm­ing herbals, the spray also has a com­plex of rich min­er­als and vi­ta­mins that pro­vides pro­tec­tion from pol­lu­tion, sun ra­di­a­tion and free rad­i­cals. NIS 159 for 100 ml., avail­able only at li­censed beau­ti­cians, call (03) 925-8888.

The scent of love

The James Richard­son duty-free shops are launch­ing a new fra­grance for women from the line of Pierre Mon­tale, a name most of us have never heard be­fore, be­cause it be­longs to the new­est trend in the per­fumery world – niche per­fumes. These are small pro­duc­ers of lux­u­ri­ous scents that are sold in small batches and there­fore are unique and not very com­mon. In­spired by the beauty and hid­den se­crets of the East, Pierre Mon­tale com­poses his scents with ma­te­ri­als such as rose, in­cense, am­ber, cedar, pre­cious woods and a thou­sand other won­der­ful scents like happy oint­ments or love po­tions. The new per­fume – Pure Love – is de­scribed as lu­mi­nous, ten­derly woody, spicy and leath­ery. The pow­er­ful scent of rose blends ef­fort­lessly with the so­phis­ti­cated scent of san­dal­wood and ve­tiver, and ev­ery­thing soft­ened by a sub­tle touch of am­ber­gris, vanilla and leather. An as­ton­ish­ing com­po­si­tion res­onat­ing with love and har­mony. $163, avail­able only at James Richard­son duty-free shops.

A no-non­sense bag

A well-made back­pack al­ways comes in handy – and I found one that an­swers all the main points: it is com­fort­able, with ad­justable, padded straps and padded back; has a large, main com­part­ment that holds ev­ery­thing, as well as two side pock­ets and a front pocket; and it comes in a va­ri­ety of col­ors. Avail­able at the Tik Hatikim chain, NIS 99.

For the dry sea­son

If you suf­fer from dry lips, es­pe­cially in the fall and win­ter – Vase­line has launched new scents for its mini-lip balm jars. The iconic lip balm by Vase­line is avail­able now in mini jars that will fit in your pocket or small purse. And the fla­vors are lip-smack­ing, in­clud­ing rose, co­coa but­ter and Crème Brulee – and of course the all-time clas­sic orig­i­nal.
