Cha Ling’s Energy Nutrition Boosting Concentrate (HK$600/15ml) is a blend of six oils, including meadowfoam, which gives skin a matt finish. To make the tiny jar last longer, mix a few drops with your serum before applying.

Perricone MD’s Cold Plasma+ Face (HK$1,150/30ml) is a serum concentrate that targets all sorts of imperfections: dullness, wrinkles, discolouration and dryness. And for a bonus, it has revised its formula, making it fragrance-free.

The RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream (HK$1,900/50ml) works so well that you will notice the difference after only one application. Buttery smooth – not thick and greasy – it leaves the skin supple with a healthy glow. The daytime version (HK$1,900/50ml) comes with SPF 15 and doubles as a sunscreen.

Sisley’s Velvet Nourishing Cream with Saffron Flowers (HK$1,420/50ml) can be used both day and night. Extracts of organic saffron flower from France relieve dryness instantly while Japanese lilyturf, a drought-tolerant plant, restores skin’s lipid balance.
