What you get is so much more than you see.

Firm Up – Kate Somerville Age Arrest Hydrating Firming Mask

When the new Kate Somerville Age Arrest mask showed up under What’s New on the Sephora website during my routine mild stalking sesh last month, I became pretty excited. As a long time fan, but only a short time blogger, I reached out to see if there was a press sample around some office starting to collect dust. What do you know? …ask and you shall receive. Or is it good things happen to good people? #AllGood

This Hydrating Firming Mask is the latest addition to the Age Arrest line up (get it?) of an eye cream and face moisturizer. Kate Somerville’s anti-aging range is powered by Telo-5 Technology, based on Nobel Prize winning research into prolonging the life of telomeres. Telomeres are like the plastic tips on our shoelaces but they appear at the DNA end of each chromosome. I don’t know about you but I don’t want my laces to fray. #DoYou?

BY TERRY For Bart – Cellularose Aqua-Balm, TEA to TAN, Grain de Rose & Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder

When you arrive home after a vacation feeling like you need a vacation, you know you overindulged. With plane air, salt water, and way too much sun and pasta, my skin needed to bounce back to reality faster than I did. Hence, my entire weekend became experiencing the très generous package I received  from BY TERRY that included the ultra luxe Cellularose Brightening Aqua-Balm, Grain de Rose, TEA to TAN, and Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder. #MerciBeaucoup

Grain de Rose is the Resurfacing Micro-Scrub Mask and BY TERRY’s sole facial exfoliator. This pink clay based multi tasker purifies and absorbs excess oil while renewing the skin with rosebud extracts and fruit acids. After applying on clean dry skin and before letting it dry, I massaged away the misery of baggage claim and an hour long line through customs. The calming rose scent was better than Xanax. #SimmerDownNow

Italian conoSCENTi – TOM FORD Mandarino di Amalfi Eau de Parfum

When I first read about Tom Ford’s Mandarino di Amalfi in British Vogue, I imagined the invite beauty editors had received to experience this addition to the Private Blend collection. A luncheon including drinks and bites highlighting key ingredients in this citrusy burst of fragrance? Since my invite was clearly lost in the mail, I picked up a 50ml at the uptown store and took it on our recent trip to… drumroll please… the Amalfi Coast. #TakeThat

Mandarino di Amalfi is an herbal and soapy citrus that was released side by side with Costa Azzurra (woodsy citrus) just last month to join Neroli Portofino (aquatic citrus) from a few years ago. The stunning blue bottles reflecting hues of Mediterranean skies and waters are now a trio of mouth watering variations. Labeled unisex, this Tom Ford’s Private Blend Collection is definitely my favorite. Especially during the summer months. #KeepingItLight
