The skincare solution taking Asia by storm, Frame Cosmetics celebrates ageing with its cruelty-free and vegan beauty products

Everyone who has ever read anything about anti-ageing knows that achieving youthful skin is harder than it looks.

The current trend for layering a multitude of skincare on the skin can be slightly overwhelming, which is why when I first opened Frame Cosmetics’ Pro-aging Special set of products, I began experiencing heart palpitations.

It includes an anti-ageing serum, the Thermal Vibration Face Massaging Device and the Regenerative Mix Applied Nutraceutical, which are tablets that the brand recommends should be taken each morning to improve your body's ability to absorb nutrients throughout the day.

Frame Cosmetics' packaging is sleek and sophisticated–almost futuristic, which makes sense considering that the Milan-based company is a result of decades of scientific research that’s gone into perfecting the art of ageing gracefully.

First up is the Extreme Restorative Anti-aging Satin Serum, which is applied using a surrealist-looking massaging device. Hyaluronic acid is what gives the skin its plumpness, and while it occurs naturally in the skin it diminishes as we age. Frame Cosmetics' serum boosts your hydration levels back up, which helps achieve a smoother and more youthful looking complexion.

The serum is lovely to use. Satisfyingly creamy, but not greasy, and six weeks in there’s no doubt that my skin looks happy. The hot and cold massager is used to apply the product to ensure that its ingredients penetrate even the deepest layers. It leaves skin feeling lifted and supple, as does the Overnight Highly Nourishing Cream that’s applied afterwards. Featuring numerous oils and butters, including avocado, jojoba, coconut, macadamia and olive oil unsaponifiables, which help the skin absorb moisture, it is deliciously decadent to smother on.

Since launching in late-2017, Frame Cosmetics has already expanded into Asia. Dermatologists see patients for numerous concerns, but winkles and lines are probably the most common frustrations for women worldwide, despite being a natural sign of ageing. Nonetheless, most of us would like a smoother complexion and hey, who can blame us? The Pro-aging Special kit allows you to obtain this from the comfort of your home.
