Is this the most exclusive skincare collection in the world? Created by Swiss luxury skincare brand Valmont, the La Quintessence des Glaciers collection has been released in an extremely limited 500 pieces, with just one of these to be earmarked for sale in the Middle East. The exclusive launch comes with a luxury price tag, at a cool AED15,429.

Each box is individually numbered out of 500, bears the signatures of Valmont’s founders, and holds three intensive treatments. With an active ingredient concentration of 69 percent, the range is to be used in conjunction for a full complexion refresh, with the set offering exactly a month’s supply.

“I dedicate this work of art to the most devoted and demanding of our customers whose beauty is our raison d’être,” says Sophie Vann Guillon, CEO of Valmont. This is the brand’s second release of La Quintessence des Glaciers, after first testing the waters with the initial small batch curated in 2020. The first launch was snapped up by Valmont’s VIP clients, with the announced second year attracting even more luxury skincare enthusiasts.

The collection includes La Sève des Glaciers, a morning treatment infused with Valmont’s signature sturgeon DNA extract and phyto-alpine plants. Used under a day cream, it helps repair and protect against environmental damage. La Source des Glaciers is used overnight, to regenerate and turn over skin cells, while Le Nectar des Glaciers deeply hydrates with sturgeon DNA, glacial spring water, and a royal jelly peptide. This latest collection is housed in a chic collector’s box, inspired by the elegance of the 1920s. Those wanting to try the brand in person can discover it at the newly launched Valmont flagship counter at Bloomingdale’s The Dubai Mall.
