Lancôme Absolue Soft Cream – It is the icon of French-style premium skin care and is based on the power of the Lancôme Rose (or the Grand Rose), a powerful rose that, as the result of hybridisation through bio-technological processes, has been turned into an active ingredient and empowered with skin improvement capabilities.
