Zelens is the brand from renowned authority in skin ageing and skin cancer, Dr. Marko Lens. His products are, quite simply, excellent, and he launches two brilliant new serums this summer.
These two new serums are packed full of active ingredients to do the very best for your skin. They target specific skin concerns, so you can add them to your regular routine.

Things like UV from sunlight, smoking, alcohol, stress and air pollutants. All of these things can help age the skin!

This serum protects the skin, and improves the texture by stimulating the production of all-important collagen. There are 18 active ingredients in this serum; things like Squalane, from olives, a strong anti-oxidant, green tea, and echinacea, Vitamins E and C and Hyaluronic Acid.

VÉTIVER carries in its genes a timeless modernity that has let it span the decades without showing its age. The vivacious fragrance, perfectly balanced and subtly woody, was the first in a long line of eponymous scents, none of which has ever been matched. It was born in 1957 in a salute to the legendary panache of Philippe Mallet, Madame Carven’s husband. The perfumer Édouard Hache who created VÉTIVER remains something of a mystery, even though he conceived one of the finest men’s fragrances the world has ever known, an amazingly modern scent of endless paradox.
In 2014, with the same passion for olfactive heritage they put into the impressive revival of “Ma Griffe”, Carven fragrances has given VÉTIVER a new look and energy, without touching the original formula in any way.
It opens on a vibrant aromatic citrus note, brimming with grapefruit, bergamot and lemongrass. Its heart is a symphony of Lavender, Orange Blossom and Geranium that picks up excitement with base notes of sensuous Nutmeg softened by Benzoin, Sandalwood and Cedar with, underlying it all, the glory of Vetiver.
Eau de Toilette Spray 100 ml Price $105
Eau de Toilette Spray 50 ml Price $75
