SWAG ALERT: BEAUTY FOR YOUR LIFE STAGE!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

From leading Brazilian cosmetics company, NaturaBrasil, comes Chronos, an #AgePositive skincare line.  Launching now in the US, Chronos focuses on the needs of the skin at every life stage.   The line melds Brazil’s rich biodiversity with advanced science.  The star product of the line is the Daily Revitalizing Face Oil, a lightweight, enhanced blend of natural oils and esters (including five essential oils with powerful anti-oxidant properties) which restore vitality and radiance to dull, stressed skin caused by daily aggressors such as excess sun and pollution. The second category of the Chronos line is a trio of life stage specific moisturizers which offer streamlined multi-benefit skin treatments:

  • Energizing Face Cream, 30+ – lightweight, multi-tasking moisturizer hydrates, energizes and protects skin to ease the look of stress and fatigue, using Jambu Extract and polyphenols with 9.5% active ingredients.
  • Firming and Radiance Face Cream, 45+ – charged with amino acids and Brazilian Jatobá Extract, a natural collagen booster, deeply moisturizes and firms skin, visibly reduces wrinkles and restores radiance with 11.1% active ingredients.
  • Lifting and Volumizing Face Cream, 60+ — visibly firms and contours skin with Caseria Extract, a natural skin filler, which improves skin’s density, plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with 14.4% active ingredients.

After tapping Jake Gyllenhaal to represent its Santos de Cartier men’s watch, French jewelry house, Cartier, has found its new leading lady.  Annabelle Wallis, the English star of “The Mummy” and “Peaky Blinders,” has been named the new face of the Panthère de Cartier.  The first “Panther” bracelet watch was created by Cartier in 1914; however, it was not until 1983 that the Panthère de Cartier Watch Collection officially launched. In January, 2017, it was reintroduced after more than a decade-long hiatus.
     “Behind her luminous complexion, blue eyes and gentle manner, the Maison discovered a great strength of character, a fearless spirit and a hunger for self-expression: the soul of a panther, driven and determined to turn convention on its head and get her teeth into something. Annabelle Wallis embodies the Panthère woman,” Cartier said in a statement to WWD.  Posting on Instagram, Wallis shared the brand’s enthusiasm.  “It is such a great privilege to work with a brand so steeped in iconic history. It’s truly is an honour to be your Panther woman.”
