One of the luxury skincare world’s most beloved lines has recently celebrated a milestone anniversary.
I have always wanted to try Guerlain’s products since they are known for being ultra luxurious, so when I got the Zoom invite to one of their newest launches and the best way to apply it, I was instantly jumping with excitement.
The brand is known for their Abielle Royale line, which features the repairing properties of honey and the science behind skin repair mechanisms. This line is designed to combat the signs of aging, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
This line uses the power of honey to help repair the skin and targets the micro-tears behind wrinkles and skin sagging to help turn back the clock. There was about 10 years of research behind this line and they recently released a new product to add to their amazing line up.
The Abeille Royale Anti-Aging Fortifying Lotion (C$90) is a water-like lotion that is designed to balance, support, and protect skin from visible signs of aging, pollution, and stress. It is also designed to reduce skin dehydration by 30 per cent. It is ideal for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin and is a lightweight lotion that you apply after your cleanser.
The formula is made up of their exclusive royal jelly, which was inspired by bees and is rich in nutrients to nurture the skin, as well as a collection of bee products and honey. It also has ouessant honey, which is rich in amino acids, trace elements, and high in fructose content that helps to revitalize the skin.
I like using this product in replacement of my toner. In asking Guerlain what the difference is between the two products, toners may contain alcohol, whereas this lotion doesn’t, meaning that it won’t dry out your skin or strip it of moisture.
Pair this new lotion with their two oils. Start first with the Youth Watery Anti-Aging Oil (C$129/30 ml), which is a facial oil that works as a serum, an oil, and a toner to visibly smooth, plump and revitalize the skin.
Ideal for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin, this oil targets skincare concerns like loss of firmness and elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles, and dullness and uneven texture. It has similar ingredients to the toner, as well as commiphora oil, which is rich in active molecules that help with skin renewal.
Finally, for the ultimate in luxury, use a few pumps of the Abeille Royale Double R Serum (C$278), which is a treatment to fight the signs of aging.
This unique product features two serums that dispense as one and gives you a lifting effect, as well as amazing skin benefits. This product is a soft-peel formula that creates the look of new skin by supporting skin’s natural renewal cycle. With regular use your skin should look more radiant and lifted, as well as smoother, smaller pores, and more elastic.
There are a few more products in this line as well, but this trio is what the brand calls their golden skincare trio. When used together these will leave your skin with a radiant lit-from-within glow. The lotion hydrates skin and leaves it supple, the Youth Watery Oil plumps and smoothes, and the Double R Serum lifts and resculpts, leaving you with younger-looking skin.
So should you take the plunge? No doubt, these items are expensive, but when it comes to skincare, I do often find that you need to invest to get good results (although I will say that there are so many amazing drugstore and affordable brands out there right now). The amount of research and the quality of ingredients definitely justify the high price tag and if you can justify it, then the splurge is totally worth it.
