Transformation station: the beauty secret to smoother skin

If you’re looking for a product that will visibly regenerate your skin, here’s why Lancôme’s Absolue Soft Cream is for you.

Produced in partnership with Lancôme. 
The Lancôme Absolue range.

It’s a moisturiser like no other you’ve experienced. The much-loved Absolue Soft Cream has merged science with the best of nature to produce a luxurious rose-infused formula. In just under a month, skin is visibly regenerated and transformed due to the cream’s scientifically proven accelerated skin cell renewal properties which target dullness, fine lines and wrinkles.

But first things first — what exactly is a soft cream, and why should you opt for one? Well, a soft cream is still a moisturiser, but it’s lighter, and has a somewhat fluffier texture. Instead of that thick texture some moisturisers boast, this one is thinner, meaning it is easy to apply and absorbs with a serum-like consistency once it makes contact with your skin.

The secret formula

Created with new cutting edge cellular longevity science powered by Lancôme’s Absolue Perpetual Rose, the Absolue Soft Cream uses roses that are hand-harvested in Valensole, France. And what makes this particular rose so unique is that it blooms almost all year round. To obtain the regenerative rose molecular fractions for the Absolue Soft Cream, the roses are picked at dawn and hand-delivered to the atelier to be transformed into the cream.

The results

Once you begin using this luxurious cream, you will visibly notice the transformation in three phases. After one day, your skin will have received a good hit of hydration and will immediately feel nourished and soothed. Within one week of use, your complexion will appear revitalised, and a luminous glow (that may have previously been missing) should become visible. And then, one month later your skin should be transformed. Not only will it retain that aforementioned luminosity, but it will look plumper, firmer and smoother.

The perfect companion to use with the Absolue Soft Cream is the Absolue Star Serum. Suitable for all skin types, the serum effortlessly sinks into your skin while the scientifically renowned pro-xylene gets to work targeting the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

So, if you want to supercharge your skincare, then maybe it’s time to try this indulgent duo. Smoother, supple and revitalised skin awaits.
