Givenchy L'Intemporel Skincare Collection

If you’re concerned about lifestyle-induced premature skin ageing, no matter your age or other skincare concerns, Givenchy has just launched your ideal skincare collection: L’Intemporel.

Givenchy describes L’Intemporel as a collection for ‘timeless’ skin, with a focus on boosting radiance, enhancing antioxidant protection, and plumping skin with youthful moisture. Don’t let this non-aggressive approach to anti-ageing fool you, though, because this well-edited collection is packed with biotechnological innovation. The ingredients that made the cut have been chosen specifically for their guaranteed effectiveness.

I’m just about entering that phase of my skincare life where fine lines aren’t as easily explained away by dehydration as they once were. My usual skincare regime just isn’t keeping up with my lifestyle anymore. Sound familiar? Well, L’Intemporel is the protective/preventative skincare investment we’ve been waiting for. You could say it’s a collection that’s worth its weight in rose gold. (Sorry.)

Here’s what you need to know…

1) What’s in the L’Intemporel collection?

In the collection you’ll find four products that are optimised for global age-defying care. The first step after cleansing is the L’Intemporel Youth Preparing Exquisite Lotion, an essence-like product that glides over skin with a softening, moisturising touch. It’s weightless yet quenching, working to thoroughly prepare skin for your moisturiser.

Next up, choose either the Global Youth Silky Sheer Cream or the Global Youth Divine Rich Cream as your moisturising step. The Silky Sheer Cream has a super-fine, lightweight texture to provide a touch of freshness, while the Divine Rich Cream is more velvety, with a balm-like texture that is perfect for drier skin types. Both are amazing under makeup.

Finally, the Global Youth Sumptuous Eye Cream provides targeted anti-ageing care for the eye contour, boosting the delicate area with a smoother, more refreshed look.

2) What makes L’Intemporel so special?

Its spectacular ingredients list, which Givenchy calls its Timeless Blend complex. It’s a sort of ‘best of the best’ cocktail that’s present in each L’Intemporel product. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid offers maximum re-plumping of the skin; encapsulated polyphenols ensure efficient free-radical eradication; stabilised vitamin E helps to regenerate skin and boost antioxidant care.

But most intriguing of all is a breakthrough thermosensitive ingredient called IR Sensitive, Givenchy’s answer to ageing induced by infrared rays. IR Sensitive is activated by natural daylight to improve the skin’s protection against oxidation, whilst maintaining the production of collagen fibres. Those fibres are what keeps skin dense, youthful-looking and glowing. So, you could say that Givenchy is using light to give skin light. I think that’s pretty cool! Don’t forget to apply an appropriate sunscreen if you’re heading outdoors, though – this collection is SPF-free.

3) Why Do I Need L’Intemporel?

If you’re on the lookout for a high performance, all-round skincare collection that will support your skin against the ageing effects of your fast-paced lifestyle, this is it. The raison d’être of L’Intemporel is to make the most of your skin, no matter your age, by smoothing, replumping and restoring a lost glow. And what could be better than that?

Oh, and a final note. I know you shouldn’t be swayed by the packaging of a product, but seriously. This packaging! Givenchy have such a knack for producing functional yet beautiful skincare and makeup, and L’Intemporel is no different. The heavyweight glass pots with their emblematic stud lids and rose gold detailing is the stuff of dressing table dreams. Givenchy, you’ve done it again.
