Trending Beauty (What’s New, What Works)
By THÉRÈSE MARGOLIS
Double Your Beauty Nerium International, the Texas-based direct-sales beauty line, has just doubled up on skincare with the introduction of two new state-of-the-art products, Nerium Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash and Nerium Illumaboost Brightening and Shield.
The Double-Cleansing Face Wash is an advanced, lightweight cleanser that goes on as an oil and then transforms into a lather when exposed to water to thoroughly remove all dirt, grime, impurities and makeup.
This super cleanser contains a combination of sea whip extract, betula water and raffinose to moisturize skin, plus coconut extract, glycerine and niacin to clean and nourish.
It also helps to counteract the effects of air pollution and has a pH that works in harmony with human skin.
Nerium Illumaboost offers a combination of radiance enhancers and urban shielding through a breakthrough delivery system that dispenses a fresh and potent dose of proprietary and proven ingredients to help brighten, hydrate and protect skin by simply adding a few pumps to any skincare product, or directly to one’s face.
This product works to fight discoloration and brighten and even skin’s appearance with a powerful, proven roster of age-fighting additives beginning with Nerium International’s proprietary phytol-umina complex, an exclusive blend of plant-based bio-actives, plus niacinamide and vitamin C.
It can also be applied directly to skin.
Uriage, the French pharmacosmetic company that has harnessed the healing powers of thermal water from the French Alps, has just released a new Eau Thermal Silky Body Lotion that provides 24-hour hydration and smoothness for dry, sensitive skin.
Enriched with Uriage thermal water, hyaluronic acid and shea butter, this silky, fluid, unctuous body lotion instantly fuses with skin to leave it hydrated, supple and comfortable.
Applied once a day, it wraps skin in softness and luxury to protect against cold, contamination and other external elements.
Eau Thermal Silky Body Lotion is hypoallergenic and non-sticky, and has a pleasantly fresh, clean scent that is as inviting as an ocean breeze.
A Stroll through Madrid
The luxury clothing and design house Loewe has just added two new interpretations to its Un Paseo por Madrid fragrance collection, inspired in the monuments and landmarks of the Spanish capital.
The two new perfumes, Tertulia en la Plaza Mayor and Decubriendo Colón, join the brand’s other Un Paseo por Madrid line, created by perfumier Emilio Valeros.
Available exclusively at the Palacio de Hierro department store chain, these intensely carnal scents reflect the cultural richness and splendor of Madrid and invite those who wear them and those who are close to those who wear them to linger down the nooks and corners of one of the world’s great iconic cities.
Each fragrance envelops in vivid detail with deep emotions the passionate Spanish temperament and noble cultural heritage of the Iberian nation.
Tertulia en la Plaza Mayor is an oriental, spicy, gourmand fragrance for both men and women, and features black pepper, rose water, orange blossom, sandalwood and honey.
Descubriendo Colón, on the other hand, is a woody attar based on agarwood and musk.
The exclusive Italian eyewear brand, Blackfin, now available in Mexico at Palacio de Hierro, has released its new autumn/winter 2017 line.
The collection includes a range of models with updated classic styles that have been given new life with original colorings and lines.
Even the classic rounded, oval or teardrop shapes have been reinterpreted thanks to the use of titanium in which thickness and tonality have been manipulated to create depth and harmony.
Among the new features are color effects on the fronts of some of the models.
The austere angular design of the top rim of these new lens is highlighted by matte tones of yellow or cloud white, in contrast to the more curved rims in polished titanium to create an up-to-date, on-trend look.
But the uncontested star of the collection is the new BF801 Slot design, with a pure titanium front, combined with the patented adjustable-in-length swordfish beta-titanium temple.
This set of sunglasses matches titanium purity with the pure shape of the circle.
Untouched by screws and locks, the BF801 embraces the lens through metal flexibility, and an open slot at the bottom provides a unique embellishment.
Blackfin eyewear is entirely conceived, designed and produced in Italy.
