New from Cle de Peau Beaute: La Crème is most definitely 'La Crème de la Crème' and I mean this literally.
This extraordinarily indulgent high-performance night cream has always brought unparalleled age-defying benefits to the complexion for a remarkably flawless and radiant finish. Now, infused with Illuminating Complex, La Crème exquisitely transforms the skin for exceptional texture, clarity and health overnight. It also encompasses several powerful plant botanicals to optimize skin cell functions. Cornflower Extract encourages the production of key proteins within the basement membrane and Rose Extract and Wild Ginger provide brightness to the skin while also enhancing 4MSK, an exclusive Clé de Peau Beauté ingredient that further brightens the skin by suppressing melanin production.
Simultaneously, Retinol ACE counteracts wrinkles and fine lines. La Crème has been beautifully repackaged in a multi-faceted gem inspired design to capture the brilliance and allure of the modern day Clé de Peau Beauté woman.

Men's Grooming

Men's grooming is getting plenty of attention these days.
From Jack Black here are three of their most popular products:

Beard Lube provides three important skin benefits in one tube: it works as a pre-shave to soften and prepare the beard, as a shaving cream for the closest, most comfortable shave, and as an after shave conditioner to leave the skin soft and smooth. The unique formula is infused with special conditioners that sustain the skin's moisture for hours after shaving and also help reduce razor burn.

Key Ingredients:
Macadamia Nut Oil, Jojoba Oil and Glycerin – provides a lubricating, protective cushion
Phospholipids – binds moisture to the skin and support the natural skin barrier
Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Menthol – refreshes and revitalizes skin
Heather – helps calm and soothe skin
$11 (3 oz), $17 (6 oz)

Face Buff Energizing Scrub clears the way for perfect skin! Menthol and Vitamin C help wake-up and invigorate skin while micro-fine scrubbing particles open congested pores and sweep away deep-down oil, dirt, and dead skin cells for a less-irritating shave.

Vitamin C and Licorice Extract for their anti-aging benefits
Allantoin for hydration and softening
Premium grade, micro-fine scrubbing grains for their ability to gently polish skin
