They may not yet be household names yet, but young actors Ella Balinska and Diana Silvers are already the toast of the international fashion and beauty worlds. Winsome, talented and blessed with a gift for gab, the two actors join American actress Dakota Fanning as the new ambassadors of ultra-premium beauty brand Clé de Peau Beauté.
MEGA was fortunate to get to have an exclusive interview with the two actors, via a virtual sit-down in Clé de Peau Beauté’s House of Infinite Radiance, a serene and light-filled estate overlooking a golden sea in the so-called metaverse. All of this was of course, part of the brand’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
Clé de Peau Beauté made its Philippine debut late 2021 via an elegant magasin éphémère in the tony Greenbelt 4, ensconced next to luxury timepiece brands and designer labels. Despite the discreet entrance, the brand, which has enjoyed a cult-like following around the world, enjoyed brisk sales during the holiday season, mainly through word-of-mouth. While the color products were limited, with only two kinds of foundations and lipstick available then, the high end skincare line was in full display, including the P34,000 La Créme, which, is incidentally the favorite of Balinksi and Silvers.
La Créme contains over 60 ingredients and is targeted to treat all levels of the skin, treating fine lines, loss of moisture and elasticity. Like all of Clé de Peau Beauté’s products, La Créme is focuses on Skin Intelligence, empowering the skin to regenerate and strengthen, resulting in a smooth, even-toned and illuminated visage. Key to La Créme’s potent formula is CeraFerment Extract, Retinol ACE and 4MSK or potassium-methoxysalicylate.
But does it work?
Both Balinski and Silvers swear by it, and while older people might begrudge the twentysomething actress-models with enviable physiques, it must be remembered that the life of an actress isn’t an easy one, as they often have to deal with late nights, constant travel, and wearing thick makeup—all of which wreak havoc on one’s skin. During the sit-down, both Balinksi and Silvers were glowing and full of praise for the solutions afforded by Clé de Peau Beauté.
Of the two, Balinska was immediately at ease, gabbing about wearing La Créme under makeup and to the gym (“I don’t look a state!” she claims with a laugh). The British actress saw her star rise immediately when she was cast in the Charlie’s Angel’s reboot alongside Kristen Stewart. The stunning actress, who remained outgoing and animated throughout the interview, is also a fashion favorite, thanks to her role as a patron of the British Fashion Council Foundation Charity.
In many of her interviews, Silvers has claimed to be a “geek,” and true enough she has this charming, girlish appeal about her. Her giggly demeanor underscores her uncommon beauty, which calls to mind a young Julia Roberts, all coltish legs and arms and adolescent pouting. She too swears by the La Créme, citing that the amount of pollution and stress that skin goes through these days is much higher than it was for previous generations. Her route is gaining momentum, with key roles in critically lauded films such as Booksmart and Ma.
Both women were definite honored to be part of the Clé de Peau Beauté family, citing that the brand’s service to women, its focus on innovation and openness to new thinking has led them align themselves with the brand. For its part, Clé de Peau Beauté seems keen to keep its stealth luxury reputation, even when announcing big time Hollywood superstars as their new faces. In the end, it’s about the brand’s heritage and its products. They might cost a pretty peso and not enjoy the airtime that similar brands in their price range enjoy, but Clé de Peau Beauté is content to be the not-so-secret secret of many of the world’s most beautiful faces.
