When a beauty brand discovers groundbreaking skincare technology, it makes sense to use that technology in myriad ways. Following on from the hugely successful launch
of Forever Youth Liberator Serum earlier this year, YSL Beauté has developed the Eye Zone Serum.
Using the same Glycanactif complex as its predecessor – glycobiology being one
of 10 major scientific breakthroughs expected to change future medicine – the Eye Zone Serum’s formula helps to maintain the key communication between skin cells that usually slows down with age. After just three days, results include a reduction in fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. £45, exclusive to Harrods
Keeping up with the latest BB creams is beauty’s new favourite
game. These coverage-meets-skincare formulas are evolving
all the time. The most recent addition of note is Rodial’s BB
SPF15 Venom Skin Tint. The cream includes one of the brand’s breakthrough ingredients – Syn-Ake – a neuropeptide that first appeared in the sell-out Glamoxy Snake Serum. The anti-ageing ingredient contracts muscles, providing a mild Botox-like effect to the skin, while the sheer coverage leaves the complexion plumped and fine lines reduced.

Eye 6ml, £29; exclusive to Harrods. Available from The Beauty Apothecary, Ground Floor; and harrods.com
There’s a sense of nostalgia in the air at Dolce & Gabbana. For the past few seasons, the brand has been tuning into its Sicilian heritage, with black lace taking centre stage; now that heritage is infiltrating The Make-up. The Lace Collection is a range of nude shades wrapped up in black packaging and embossed with an intricate lace pattern. Central to the collection is the new Intenseyes Mascara, a volumising, inky black formula that separates and adds volume for
a dramatic effect. Team with the new Passion Duo Lipstick shades
for a super-glossy pout. From £19.25; exclusive to Harrods.

Some products are to a beauty insider what the Swiss Army knife is to Bear Grylls. Kiehl’s Crème de Corps has long been a must-have in the skincare survival kit; its cocoa butter
and beta-carotene formula
re-textures and smooths even the driest skin. As a tribute to this body-beauty icon, Harrods and Kiehl’s have collaborated on a special-edition one-litre bottle with a green and gold label, of which only 300 will be produced. 1L, £75; exclusive to Harrods.
