Lait Nettoyant is a creamy makeup remover and cleanser that you can use morning and evening, and doesn’t leave your skin dry or tight. I like that if I forget all the other steps, this cleanser is enough to make me feel fresh for the day.

A good eye cream that actually delivers on its promises is almost impossible to find, but using the gentle Phyto-Contour with rosemary extract every morning seriously decreases swollen, puffy, ‘I was finishing a PowerPoint all night and now look exhausted’ syndrome.

Our absolute favorite part of the regime that Mom will get addicted to? Yon-Ka‘s latest, the Advanced Optimizer Gel Lift with hibiscus peptides and sweet almond proteins to firm, tighten and smooth the neck, décolleté and bust areas.

Smells incredible too.
