When we were tasked to go through hundreds and hundreds of products to find the ultimate best ones for this year’s Prestige Beauty and Wellness Awards, we all had in mind a few names that we thought would make the cut based off of each editor’s personal routine. For most, VALMONT was definitely in mind. So when the Swiss brand took home not one, but two awards, it didn’t exactly come as a surprise considering how consistent and deserving their products are.
Morning Skincare Winner: The Eye Balm
Nowadays it’s not enough to slap on some moisturiser and call it a day, at least if your goal is to prevent wrinkles and loss of firmness for as long as possible. So after prepping the under eye area with a lightweight serum, your next step should be the VALMONT V-Shape Filling Eye Balm. The balm has a non-greasy and non-sticky texture that belies its ultra-concentrated formula. It works to firm the skin around the eyes while reducing unsightly bags, puffiness and drooping eyelids. Over time it also strengthens and densifies the skin and its “dermal extracellular matrix”. All that and it feels good too.
Evening Routine Winner: The Eye Makeup Remover
It’s the cardinal rule of skincare: don’t go to bed without removing your make-up and washing your face. But how many times have we done just that and woken up to streaks of eye shadow and flakes of mascara on our cheeks and pillow? Well, not anymore, thanks to this new eye make-up remover from a storied Swiss brand. VALMONT Bi-falls, part of the Purity collection of cleansing products launched in March, has a unique non-oily formula that targets even the most stubborn waterproof make-up while protecting and softening the skin around the eyes. And another bonus? The 60ml bottle fits in our carry-on, so we can go all-out glam on our holidays and not have a streaky face to show for it later. evalmont.com.hk
Special mention: THE SPA by VALMONT at Lee Garden
When it comes to delivering the very best, VALMONT has gone beyond just gracing the world with their products. The opening of THE SPA by VALMONT was a way to bring service and information to its customers. VALMONT’s philosophy has always been to integrate both art and beauty together, and this is apparent from the moment you first set foot inside the sanctuary in Causeway Bay. Hanging all parts of the space are chandeliers, glass sculptures and contemporary paintings. All sorts of beauty treatments and facials are made available within the themed private VIP rooms, each thoughtfully designed to reflect the artistic visions of VALMONT. The spa menu boasts a huge range of treatments targeting specific needs, and all using award-winning VALMONT products, of course.
