Recently I attend a special evening with cocktails and refreshments at AMOREPACIFIC'S Beauty Gallery and Spa in Soho to learn about their new skincare products they are launching this fall.
Please Note: I was invited as media and received a gift bag after the event. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

AMOREPACIFIC is a leading global skincare brand known for their Asian-influenced products that uses potent Asian botanicals with cutting-edge technology to emphasize a nurturing approach to skin health. Below is a sneak peak at some of their latest skincare for the Fall.
The New Advanced Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule Set is the latest anti-aging breakthrough with an advanced new formula that amplifies the energy of concentrated Green Tea actives to rewind time for skin in just four weeks. The Ampoule system significantly increases collagen density and reduces cell decomposition for profoundly effective age-defying immersion therapy. Each ampoule consists of two individual vials that are shaken together just prior to use so they retain maximum efficacy.
We all received a 1 week supply to try out as it must be used in 7 days once the ingredients are combined. The consistency is more silky water than serum thick when it comes out of the pump but glides on smoothly to your skin and moisturizes. Retail price for the entire four piece set is $550.
Future Response Age Defense Creme is a clinically-proven, comprehensive daily defender that provides a 360-degree long term approach to defend against skin aging. It uses Amorepacific's proprietary Future Response Complex, a fusion of powerful botanicals that effectively inhibits the skin receptors responsible for accelerating aging. It also restores skin’s ability to regenerate its cells and extend a youthful appearance. Retail price is $195 for 1.7oz.
Luminous Effect Brightening Serum and Luminous Effect Brightening Masque. The Brightening Serum delivers the proprietary Meladefying Complex deep into the skin, instantly brightening skin tone and reducing hyper-pigmentation. It instantly brightens skin tone, strengthens skin's resistance to inflammation and environmental stressors, reduce existing pigmentation for a more translucent complexion and delivers intense moisture deep into the skin for increased softness and suppleness. It is also made to be gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
I have been using this product the past week and absolutely love it for moisturizing my face in the morning and night. It's not a heavy serum and my skin feels soft and dewy hours after applying. Retail price is $220.
The Brightening Masque is a highly concentrated whitening treatment equivalent to one bottle of serum and intensely accelerates the brightening effects. The soft fiber material contours flawlessly over every facial curve to effectively allow the ingredients to penetrate the entire face. It instantly creates bright, dewy skin, provides the most intensive melanin-defying treatment, strengthens skin's resistance to inflammation and environmental stressors, reduces existing pigmentation for a brighter, more translucent complexion, and is precisely formulated to be extremely gentle on even the most sensitive skin. These seem great for traveling if you don't want to carry liquids on a plane. A set of six masques retails for $120.
Amorepacific will be coming out with the Limited Edition Holiday Time Response Flawless Skin Set ($450), which works to restore skin tone, smoothness, clarity and radiance; and the Limited Edition Moisture Bound and Future Response Holiday Set ($195), which works to prevent and protect against the first signs of aging, hydrate and restore skin to its youthfulness - both available in October 2012.
During the event I also enjoyed a unique jazz performance by Korean drummer, Vongku Pak.
Amorepacific skincare is available at Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, online and at the Amorepacific Beauty Gallery and Spa located at 114 Spring St. in NYC.
