These beauty items help boost your confidence and positive outlook gives power. From La Prairie Illuminating Eye serum to Tom Ford Concealer for Men, these refreshing beauty products will revitalize you from within.

La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Eye Serum

The area under the eyes is prone to darkening and discoloration due to stress. La Prairie’s serum reduces puffiness and restores firmness. The Golden Caviar extract and other active ingredients brighten the area and resolve eye-area aging concerns. This serum is definitely worth investing in.

La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Essence

With daily environmental stressors, it may be challenging to keep your face refreshed. Yet La Mer’s essence deeply nourishes the skin, conditioning it to bring a burst of radiance. Apart from reducing dark spots and discoloration, the essence also protects the skin from UV rays and other toxins.

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle

Candles mainly set a certain mood. This particular scent consists of the rich juices of exotic pomegranate and Casablanca lily. The enigmatic blend creates a refreshing ambiance that can relax you after a long travel or a hectic day at work.

Dior Diorshow Mascara

Dior reinvented Diorshow’s formula to enrich it with microfibres to create an effect of lash extensions. Your lashes will appear fuller and bolder for a daring look. Patented with AIR-LOCK™ wiper, the mascara prevents contact with air and keeps it dry in its tube.

Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Pure Castille Liquid Soap

Made with organic ingredients, this liquid soap thoroughly cleanses while maintaining your skin’s natural oils. Its slightly sweet scent like amaretto or marzipan is soothing. It is also good to note that the bottle can be recycled.

Tom Ford Concealer for Men

Tom Ford recognizes the need to address men’s concerns like under-eye circles and blemishes. Hence, the brand developed a concealer that effectively covers spots, scars, and razor nicks. It comes in a sleek twist-up tube that can be applied on the fingers. It is simple to use, a real investment for men whether metrosexual or not.
