Special Dish: We Won’t Grow Up

With HK residents of all ages out every night and partying ‘til dawn, it’s not totally surprising to hear Hong Kong being compared to Peter Pan’s Never Never Land. But as carefree as we may act sometimes and as many times a day as we chant, “I Won’t Grow Up,” our bodies don’t always listen to our desperate pleas. Luckily, Lane Crawford has just the right products to make sure our skin, hair and cosmetic regimes can keep up with our ever-youthful spirits. From August 15-31, for the launch of the newest exclusive lines, a team of experts will be on hand to help with makeovers, image styling, skincare consultations, personalized product recommendations, and trend tips for the season. Take flight from the everyday and immerse yourself in a fantasy land filled with the latest out-of-this-world cosmetic and beauty essentials and equally exotic scents created by perfume extraordinaires. While they may not be as powerful as Tinkerbell’s “fairy dust,” these luxurious and exclusive products are undoubtedly the best-of-the-best and unquestionably magical!

Second Star to the Right
We’d travel to the stars and back to get our hands on a bottle of Bod Certified Organic Moroccan Rose Face Oil. This deeply hydrating blend of rose maroc, neroli and calendula essential oils combined with evening primrose and rosehip bring life and vitality to the skin. Containing a natural source of vitamin C that is essential in the formation of collagen, this unique blend of oils is excellent for inflamed or irritated conditions and promises to leave your skin dewy and glowing. (exclusively at LC Pacific Place)

I’ve Gotta Crow
Everybody’s crowing about Chloé’s newly unveiled signature scent, a vibrant perfume that is warm, playful and seductive. Successfully capturing the uber-chic feel of Chloé’s stunning designs, this uniquely fresh fragrance is perfect for free spirited ladies with confidence and individuality. Expect a flirtatious combination of floral powdery notes with hints of peony and lychee and a subtle embellishment of springtime freesia.

You Can Fly!
You can fly…stress free, with Lisa Hoffman’s Night and Day 24 Hour Skincare Packette, which contains 10 mini doses of cleansing, toning, and moisturising formulas in a resealable, disposable pouch. The jet-setting wife of actor Dustin Hoffman pioneered the development of this ingenious line, which contains steps to follow for both night and day regimes, depending on your flight time. (exclusively at LC Pacific Place) Post plane ride, try SheerinO’kho’s miraculous First Class Flight mask, a rich serum of aromatic essential oils created to remedy the discomfort of long trips by purifying skin, eliminating toxins, and reducing irritation, so your skin looks like a million dollars (no matter which part of the plane you were sitting in!). (available at LC Pacific Place and ifc Mall)

Never Smile at a Crocodile
Never smile at a crocodile, unless it’s in the form of a bag or shoes…or if you’ve just used Smiley Eau de Toilette. This unique formula of micro-nutrients derived from pure cocoa extract is said to activate an instant feeling of happiness. Since you’re already smiling, why not pucker up with Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick (in Lip Wardrobe), a universally wearable range of rich colours, which deliver superior hydration and are scented with the subtle fragrance of wild figs. (exclusively at ifc Mall)

Following the Leader
You’ve always been a trendsetting leader, now it’s time to join the A-List with Rodial A-List Cleanser, which removes makeup, helps to reduce the appearance of age spots and acts as a skin brightening balm for the face. If you think it would take a miracle to make your skin look better, look no further. stevenvictormd Miracle Serum uses super-ingredient ceramide to increase moisture retention by a whopping 90%, and is filled with vitamins to enrich the skin and generate the production of collagen and elastin. (both available at LC Pacific Place and ifc Mall)

We only had time to try out a few of the best samples before we were called away to deal with the proverbial Captain Hook (read: work, kids, errands). Stay tuned until next week when we take you further into Neverland with even more fabulous products from Lane Crawford. In the meantime, with your new and magical beauty regime, not only will you not grow up, you’ll be looking younger and more radiant than ever before!
