To combat the signs of ageing caused by lack of sleep—fine lines and dull, uneven skin tone—Guerlain has developed the Orchidée Impériale Night Ritual, which strives to recreate the benefits of a “seven-hour night” with its cell respiration technology. Combatting nighttime hypoxia (oxygen deficiency) on the skin, the Orchidée Impériale Sleeping Serum diffuses its ingredients through the night to densify and decongest skin, reducing sleep lines and puffiness in the mornings.
Available at Guerlain counters at Tangs Plaza, Takashimaya, and Metro Paragon.
