Drinking from the Fountain of Youth

From earthy palettes for stunning eyes to a luscious almond body treatment, Rustan’s The Beauty Source has everything one needs to look amazing anytime and anywhere

We currently live in a world where beauty strives against both the ravages of a harsh environment and the relentless march of time. But we have also grown wary of the extensive menu of skin and body care options presented to us: we balk at the idea of using harsh, synthetic products with labels displaying a rather frightening grocery list of chemicals with unpronounceable names or products of unknown provenance that promise effects that seem too good to be true.

Rustan’s The Beauty Source takes much of the guesswork out of choosing the right products to suit your needs. The Beauty Source prides itself on carrying some of the world’s finest brands with regard to cosmetics, skincare, and body care, many of which insist on using natural ingredients to help one retain a gorgeous, youthful glow.

A Touch of Perfection


The eyes and lips are the two most noticeable features on one’s face, but others need not notice the faint lines that crease around them over time.

To add a touch of earthy glamour to one’s revitalised eyes, Laura Mercier’s Editorial Eye Palette and Sketch & Intensify Brow Duo are the perfect, skin-friendly picks. Both are made with soft, clay-like textures that easily melt into the skin without the greasy, uncomfortably heavy feel typical of many modern cosmetics. Add the fact that these provide a pop of long-lasting true to hue colour, and they become part of one’s regular makeup kit.

Delightfully Natural


Those seeking natural, botanical age-defiance solutions would do well to consider Neal’s Yard Remedies' Beauty Sleep Concentrate. This unique compound of herbal essences helps moisturise the skin as you sleep, improving its texture and reducing blemishes, to restore a youthful glow.

Rejuvenating tired skin is also a key feature in La Prairie's revolutionary caviar water-infused Skin Caviar Essence in Lotion and Liquid Lift.


The Essence in Lotion is a perfect way to start one's beauty regimen as it hydrates and conditions skin, preparing it to absorb the full benefit of serums and other preparations. La Prairie's Liquid Lift, on the other hand, delivers an immediate lifting effect that improves the firmness of the skin. With regular use, it also evens out the skin's texture and appearance.

Skin suffering from the impact of pollution and stress, on the other hand, would benefit from the soothing compound of herbal extracts that makes up the base of Sisley’s Ecological Compound. Perfect for smoothing onto one’s face and neck, the Ecological Compound features a nutrient-rich mix of revitalising ginseng, rosemary and hops for stimulation, horsetail to help tone the skin, and Centella asiatica, an herb that has been proven effective with regard to skin regeneration and healing. Smooth without being greasy and non-comedogenic, it is a product that’s perfect for toting around and keeping smoke and dust from ruining one’s complexion.


Sisley also offers its Black Rose Mask, an indulgent treatment to help restore a youthful glow, and the deliciously fragrant Floral Spray Mist for an invigorating lift anytime and anywhere.

The Body Beautiful

Sweet almonds form the basis of Provencal beauty and skincare brand L’Occitane’s latest body care breakthrough.

The new Almond Refining Concentrate works to visibly reshape the body by creating a balance between body and mind, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a firmer, more toned physical contour. Along with L’Occitane’s revolutionary pressed almond extract, the formula also includes almond oil and caffeine to help tighten the skin and reduce the visual appearance of cellulite while imparting a sweet, delicate aroma to one’s skin.

From head to toe, you can be sure Rustan’s The Beauty Source has the right product for you.
