La Prairie Antiaging Night Cream

“Nighttime is the best time for skin to repair. Use your most active product then, so they are working the hardest for you. A luxury night cream, like La Prairie’s, is one of the best options.”

La Mer Treatment Fluid Foundation

"Winter weather and makeup can be drying, so skin needs all the hydration and nutrients it can get. This foundation is loaded with both, yet still feels light and smooth."
