Yves Saint Laurent Beaute's new range of luxe potions, Or Rouge, is made with saffron pistils sourced from the High Atlas Moutains in Morocco. This pricey ingredient (it takes 150 flowers to produce a gram of saffron) is known for its soothing and antioxidant properties to keep skin youthful. An X-Glycan complex is also added to boost cell renewal.
The three products in the line - a lotion ($179), an oil ($289) and creme ($559) - are all lightly perfumed with a luxe floral scent for a comforting beauty ritual.
