Special Dish: Once Upon a Time

Last week we travelled to Never Never Land on our quest to not grow up. While there, we noticed that although we’ve been getting older, our favourite Disney princesses, miraculously, look exactly the same. How does Snow White keep her skin so smooth and wrinkle-free? And the Little Mermaid manages to keep her hair looking lustrous and shiny despite all that time in the ocean. They tried to keep it from us, but we figured out their secret – they’ve been visiting Lane Crawford all these years to keep up with the latest skincare, haircare and cosmetic products available. Well, this year, you can get in on the game by going to Lane Crawford before August 31, where the newest exclusive products will be available and experts will be on hand with the latest tips and tricks of the trade. We swore we’d keep this to ourselves, but from one princess to another, here’s a sneak peak at who’s using what and what’s really working…

Cinderella
After marrying the handsome prince, this girl’s gotta look like royalty all the time. That includes wearin
g the finest gems night and day…even on her skin! Only Bvlgari’s Précieuse Line will do, using extracts from precious stones such as sapphire, malachite, tourmaline and citrine combined with anti-ageing super ingredient Polypetides III complex, to rapidly restore skin to its luminous splendour. Princesses from far and wide are lining up for the masks and serum from this newly released product line, which outside of Italy, is only available in Lane Crawford. (exclusively available at LC Times Square)

Mulan
Wild and headstrong, she needs a scent that can keep up with her bold and daring charisma. Jo Malone’s Lime Basil & Mandarin Collection is a perfect fit, an unexpected and playful combination which creates a unique sensory experience. One of 19 different signature fragrances from The World of Jo Malone, Lime Basil & Mandarin can be experienced in the form of cologne, bath oil, body crème, shower gel, bath soap, shampoo, conditioner and candles. Start your scent-ual affair with a complimentary hand and arm massage using Lime Basil & Mandarin body lotion at the LC Jo Malone retail counter until August 31.

Aurora
After sleeping for all those years, this beauty’s skin needed a serious wake-up call! Körner’s Seem a Dream Cleansing Wash, which uses aromatic sandalwood and myrtle essential oils to purify, cleanse and moisturise made her wonder if she’d ever missed a moment. (available at LC Pacific Place and ifc Mall) While ZO Skin Health’s Ossential Radical Night Repair, filled with the highest possible concentrations of pure retinal, advanced peptides and powerful anti-oxidants, erased all signs of time gone by. (exclusively available at LC Pacific Place)

Ariel
Is it real? Is it dyed, who knows? Keeping her hair that gorgeous red colour with all that body and bounce despite spending so much time “under the sea” can’t be easy. Sea and land lovers alike are turning to Biologique Recherche’s Masque Biologique Capillaire for intense conditioning that nourishes and revitalises hair to a magnificently strong and healthy state. Scientifically designed to rebalance the scalp and nourish the hair from root to end, and with specially formulated products for use before, after and during colouring, your locks will be so lustrous and shiny no one would guess you’re not a natural! (available at LC Pacific Place and ifc Mall)

Pocohontas
How does she get that fresh-from-the-forest glow? Free-spirited, mysterious lovers of nature need a product line that can keep up with their inspired adventures. Ole Henrickson’s African Red Tea collection has all the right ingredients with rich natural minerals, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-cancer properties, which can heal skin irritations and promote smooth skin. African Red Tea See The Difference Serum changes the texture and tone of the skin with restorative cell renewing ingredients, while African Red Tea Self Heating Body Soufflé warms the skin with powerful anti-oxidants that stimulate circulation and relax muscles.
