2 La Mer The NEW Eye Concentrate
Introducing The NEW Eye Concentrate, a faster, more concentrated formula than Le Mer’s original potion. It transforms the look of eyes and helps protect their healthy-looking future, with an advanced treatment that reduces the look of dark circles, lines and wrinkles and helps prevent future visible damage before it starts.
This luxurious yet lightweight cream spreads effortlessly without tugging the delicate eye area and is absorbed rapidly to penetrate deeply into skin’s surface. Use twice daily, dab a small amount onto the cooling applicator and gently massage onto eye area to boost natural microcirculation and help cool and refresh fatigued eyes, leaving the eye area feeling energised, looking restored and renewed.
£160, available at airport counters worldwide.
3 111SKIN’s Cryo ATP Sports Booster
Designed to mimic the effect of extreme cold on the skin, this booster contains natural cellular energy, ATP, to encourage more oxygen for optimised cell function.

7 Tom Ford Beauty Beau de Jour
Keep it cool with Tom Ford. Beau de Jour is a cool and refreshing aromatic fougère amplified with an energetic hybrid of lavenders. A fresh, commanding entrance of Lavender introduces the clean and fervent facets of the Beau de Jour scent.
The core beats with the herbal inflection of Rosemary and a floral note of green Geranium with its subtle mint inflection, a powerful contrast to the leather-like warmth of Oakmoss and the electric green of Basil.
Notes of Patchouli and Amber create an earthy foundation of radiant wood and sensual musky warmth, further elevating Beau de Jour’s refreshing notion of masculinity through the finish.
