House of Fraser is launching skincare essentials from top brands this January – and we’ve got all the details
It’s cold, it’s dark, all the cheerful Christmas lights have come down, and we still don’t get paid for over another week – yes, January can sure be a tough month to get through!
We all need a treat or two to keep us going until February, and to make sure that our skin stays soft and healthy – whatever the weather and work throws at it.
The good news is that our friends at House of Fraser are launching a wide range of new skincare essentials this January, from top brands including La Prairie, Aveda, Charlotte Tilbury and Elizabeth Arden.
“The festive season tends to take a toll on our skin, and when the egg nog is finished and the mince pies are all gone we need the tools to remedy and repair our skin”, House of Fraser Beauty Director Ruth Newman told us. “And what better time to do it than for the New Year? 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.”
We do like the sound of anything that “aids our glow”. So, let’s take a look at House of Fraser’s plethora of innovative new products launching this month – designed to banish skin concerns, replenish you after the festivities, and leave you looking revitalised and ready for the year ahead.
La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo
Why House of Fraser loves it: “Emulating expert skin procedures, Line Interception Power Duo targets wrinkles at their inception and helps to smooth them where they have already appeared. There are two distinct creams, one for day and one for night, in two breakthrough formulas. In two weeks, you’ll notice 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 infrared 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.”
What it costs: Line Interception Duo 50ml: £244 RRP.
Where and when to get it: On counter 29 January. In the meantime, you can shop the existing La Prairie range online here.
Aveda Tulasara Wedding Masques
Why House of Fraser loves it: “A woman’s skin is at its best on her wedding day – radiant, luminous and glowing – and now Aveda have a masque that can help you experience wedding day skin every day.
“Inspired by an ancient Indian wedding ritual, the Tulasara Wedding Masques use turmeric extract to create glowing and even skin tone so you can wake up to luminous, wedding-perfect skin every day.
“These masques for face and eyes are formulated to work at night while skin is at rest, for brighter skin overnight and firmer-looking skin over time. Plant stem cells and extracts synchronise with the skin’s natural overnight repair cycle to increase energy in the cells and stimulate the skin’s restorative ability to repair, firm and lift.”
What it costs: Overnight Wedding Masque Face 50ml: £48 RRP; Overnight Wedding Masque Eye 15ml: £38 RRP.
Where and when to get it: On counter 26 January. You can shop the Aveda range at HouseofFraser.com here.
Bobbi Brown Remedies
Why House of Fraser loves it: “When skin feels unhealthy, tired or damaged, these six supercharged remedies can be used alone or blended together with foundation or skincare to tackle a multitude of skin concerns, including irritation, pollution and dehydration.
“Skin Fortifier Strength & Recovery Tonic strengthens the skin’s barrier of defence against moisture loss and delivers stronger, more resilient skin that’s better equipped to fend off future damage and external aggressors.
“Skin Clarifier Pore & Oil Control contains a potent blend of purifying and nutrient-rich oils, and helps balance sebum levels and increase cell turnover to clarify and unclog pores, while Skin Relief with Calming Algae Complex visibly reduces redness and the impact of stress and helps to prevent skin issues like dark spots, wrinkles and sagging.
“Skin Reviver with power-greens ferment delivers a brighter, plumper and more refreshed complexion, and Skin Moisture Solution intense rehydration compound deeply moisturises skin, leaving it supple and never taut.
“The Skin Salve Restoring Treatment balm is a super-rich formula designed to work like a ‘skin bandage’, and give TLC to cracked, severely dry or damaged skin.”
What it costs: Skin Reviver, Skin Moisture Solution, Skin Fortifier, Skin Relief, Skin Clarifier and Skin Salve 14ml: £29.50 RRP each. See the full Bobbi Brown makeup and skincare range at House of Fraser here.

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules, Daily Youth Restoring Serum
Why House of Fraser loves it: “In 1990, Elizabeth Arden started a skincare revolution with the development of Ceramide Capsules – a bio-engineered, skin-identical ceramide formula available in a first-of-its-kind single-dose capsule format.
“As a market leader in ceramide technology, Elizabeth Arden is now introducing the next generation of capsules: Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum. This clinically and dermatologically tested formula delivers triple the anti-ageing power to enhance skin’s barrier repair function, increase moisturisation within the surface of the skin, and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
“A combination of new ingredients and higher levels of existing ingredients work to not only replenish essential, naturally-occurring lipids, but also support skin’s natural renewal process. The result is a serum that is clinically proven to take up to 10 years off the look of skin – for a visibly firmer, smoother, healthy appearance.”
Where and when to get it: On counter January 2017. See the full online range of House of Fraser’s Elizabeth Arden serums here.
La Mer Revitalising Hydrating Serum
Why House of Fraser loves it: “This deeply replenishing and refreshing serum awakens a look of vitality one drop at a time, flooding skin with sea-sourced actives and legendary Miracle Broth.
“Tiny micro-droplets of the deep hydration ferment – with an interactive blend of green, brown and red algae – are designed to penetrate rapidly, revitalising with marine nutrients to create a haven of hydration.
“Lime Tea Concentrate – and a halo of antioxidants – create a lush environment for your most radiant, healthy looking complexion to thrive. Skin looks plumped and lines appear softened. Skin looks renewed, and the complexion appears radiant, youthful and full of life.”
What it costs: La Mer Revitalising Hydrating Serum 30ml: £145 RRP.
