I discovered Cinq Mondes a couple of years ago – it’s never really managed to get much attention in the UK although it’s a brand that sits in the most exclusive spas all over the world. There’s pretty much nothing that I don’t like about the range, either. Everything seems to perform beyond expectation, and that’s rare.
I picked out the Precious Elixir Nourishing oil because of its argan content (it also contains cartham oil (safflower) and olibanum essential oil) to try and sure enough, it’s a beautiful, nourishing oil that glides over the complexion. The next morning, my skin was as promised, completely nourished and soft – no hint of dryness anywhere, and also no oily patches either which can sometimes happen; your cheeks end up all perky but there’s residue left around the nose.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
So, here’s the kick. It’s £49 for 10ml which I think is very expensive; it puts it in another skincare bracket altogether, price wise, and that’s an issue – and why, probably, Cinq Mondes doesn’t get as much attention as it otherwise might. It’s for the luxury market, clearly, and it is indeed a luxurious product, but I’d like to see it more competitively priced so the range can be a real player.
