Whether it’s an oil to rehydrate your skin or a new blusher to aid that glow, our brands have hundreds of innovating formulas to help you.” Ruth Newman, Beauty Director at House of Fraser
La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo
Emulating expert skin procedures, Line Interception Power Duo targets wrinkles at their inception and helps to smooth them where they have already appeared. Two distinct creams, one for day and one for night, in two breakthrough formulas. In two weeks, a marked difference. During the day Line Interception Power Duo-Day aims to inhibit the creasing that causes persistent expression lines over time. The light pink formula also protects skin from UVA, UVB and harmful infra-red rays. During the night Line Interception Power Duo-Night targets the most pronounced lines, especially the hard-to smooth vertical lines that come with age and gravity.
Fight lines where they begin with this duo of breakthrough, silky formulations. Three types of wrinkles, one lineless future.
