HIGH PERFORMANCE FOR HIGH PERFECTION
SECOND-SKIN TEXTURE, 24H WEAR1.
With L’Essentiel High Perfection skin is naturally enhanced to reveal its full beauty, leaving it perfectly even and delicately mattified, all while remaining luminous.
With a second-skin texture which immediately offers high coverage without a mask-like effect, pores and imperfections are blurred away for a refined skin feel. Meanwhile, shine is neutralised in perfect comfort to reveal true radiance.
You can trust this High Perfection for 24 hours1 .
L’Essentiel High Perfection skilfully succeeds in melding high performance with high naturalness within a formula composed from 96% naturally-derived ingredients 1 .
Having been carefully selected, each ingredient creates a mesh that allows the skin to breathe while preserving natural hydration and protecting it from daily external aggressors such as UVA and UVB.
The key ingredient behind this perfect finish? Vegetal silk from the ramie plant, which delicately works to mattify the complexion all day long without drying skin or creating a mask-like effect.
Its skincare essences 2 are delivered by the ingredients behind L’Essentiel Natural Glow’s success:
• Tara fruit extract and red algae allow the skin to breathe 3.
• White cocoa beans strengthen the skin barrier and maintain hydration4.
• Probiotic derivatives and prebiotic extracts from yacon juice strengthen the skin barrier and the skin’s natural defences4. Day after day:
• Bare skin is more beautiful: skin is smoother (+15%), skin texture is refined (+9%)5.
• The make-up result gets even more beautiful: the appearance of pores is reduced (-59%), as is the appearance of pigmentary imperfections (-45%)6.
