Prevage has its attention on increasing sales with a new duo of antiaging eye products.
The brand will launch Prevage Eye Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 15 and a reformulated version of its Prevage Eye Advanced Anti-Aging Serum in October in the U.S. and globally in spring 2011.
“Eyes age faster than any other part of the body, which made this an ideal place to focus,” said Robin Mason, vice president of global skin care marketing for the brand.
Both products include the brand’s new idebenone skin-compatible ester delivery system — which fuses idebenone and a fatty acid — said to create a reservoir so the skin can draw on the idebenone when necessary. This ramps up the power of this noted antioxidant, said Mason. This technology is also more skin-friendly than time-released delivery systems, she noted. The purpose of the idebenone is to prevent oxidation on the skin, reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots and protect against free-radical damage.
According to Mason, idebenone is one of the few antioxidants to effectively combat oxidative stress from both extrinsic (external environmental sources) and intrinsic (free radicals produced in the skin itself) sources.
The moisturizer adds acetyl tetrapeptide-5, said to promote a firmer appearance in the eye area; siegesbeckia orientalis and rabdosia rubescens extracts to reduce the effects of oxidative stress, and Advanced Moisture Complex, a blend of hyaluronic acid, humectants and a polymer said to help lock moisture deep within the surface layers of the skin.
The serum adds acetyl tetrapeptide-5, said to promote a firmer, less puffy look; Syn-Coll, a peptide said to support the skin’s own natural collagen and create a firmer appearance; Haloxyl, a blend of peptides said to strengthen skin and diminish the appearance of dark circles, and lypochromin-6, an antioxidant said to help protect the lipids in the skin’s moisture barrier from secondary free-radical damage.
The moisturizer and the serum will each sell for $98 for 0.5 oz. It will be available in Prevage’s full U.S. distribution, currently about 1,900 department and specialty store doors.
While Mason declined to discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated that the duo will do about $8 million in the U.S. and about $15 million globally in theirfirst year on counter. Advertising and promotional efforts will include national advertising in fashion, beauty, health and fitness books and extensive sampling, with about 1 million samples planned. Industry sources estimated that Prevage would spend about $5 million on advertising and promotion in the product’s first year.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
