Lancôme Énergie de Vie Collection

We can’t think of a beauty brand’s that’s more quintessentially French than Lancôme. But the makeup mainstay is looking outside of Paris for its newest release. The Lancôme Énergie de Vie Collection ($42-65) takes inspiration from Eastern philosophies instead, utilizing Chinese herbal ingredients, Japanese technology and more for a skincare collection that promises to bring radiance and moisture to even the most parched skin. And now that the seasons are changing, it’s the perfect time to re-think your skincare routine. Coincidence? Let’s just say Lancôme’s timing is pretty much perfect.

“Lancôme’s Énergie de Vie is inspired by Asian beauty rituals, lightweight textures, and balancing energy flow to the skin. The Chinese describe healthy skin as Qi Se: A balanced energy flow (Qi) and an ideal skin color (Se) that is defined by a radiant glow from within,” saysDr. Macrene Alexiades, Lancôme’s consulting dermatologist. “For centuries, Eastern medicine has turned to the root—the most active area of the plant—as a source of vital life energy to balance Qi Se. The Énergie de Vie collection takes inspiration from this ancient philosophy, drawing upon these elements of the plant known to promote Qi Se energy equilibrium.”

The four-piece collection includes an oil cleanser ($42; a mainstay of Japanese and Korean skincare) that’s gentle enough to use day and night. It’s moisture-rich formula isn’t drying and will remove every trace of makeup, even the most stubborn waterproof mascara. And unlike the mythical 17-step Korean skincare routines, Lancôme has streamlined everything to just three more steps. Boost moisture with a splash of essence ($50) to bring out radiance and energize skin. Finish it all off with a gel moisturizer ($50) for day and a richer sleeping mask ($65) at night. You’ll be getting the benefits of botanicals such as black currant oil, kiwi fruit, rhodiola crenulata and gentiana lutea roots, which infuse your visage with vitamins and antioxidants without weighing you down with heavy creams. The seasons might be changing, but with this set, your skin will be sailing smooth no matter what the calendar says.
