Lancôme Absolue L’Extrait Regenerating Ultimate Elixir: Everything’s Coming Up Roses

Culling native cells from up to 2 million rose leaves, Lancome’s Absolue L’Extrait is the seriously the “ultimate elixir” for increasing collagen production and fighting wrinkles. Its unique, state-of-the-art biotechnological process keeps these stem cells alive and active during the 10-week regeneration period. This is a superior cream…with a superior price tag!

I used Absolue L’Extrait prior to embarking on a long-haul flight across the Pacific, since I needed a powerful moisturizer – and this fit the bill. The cream has a thick, yellow, paste-like consistency but when applied, glides on as smoothly as a gel and absorbs instantly. I usually need to apply moisturizer several times during long plane rides, but I kept checking my face and it stayed supple and moist the entire trip. Unfortunately, I didn’t use it long enough to see the long-term effects of dermo cell regeneration (which I’ve heard this stuff is amazing for), but this is a very nice heavy cream, sans the heavy feeling. At Bergdorf Goodman for $350.
