Introducing Calvin Klein Beauty

Calvin Klein beauty it marketed toward a more sophisticated and mature woman i.e. the 30 and up group. I am not sure I like being in the “mature” woman age group thought I had a few more years to hit that stage. Diane Kruger looks flawless in these ads maybe being “mature” isn’t so bad?

I love Calvin Klein Beauty it’s a very modern, clean and feminine scent. It starts with a great floral scent and the dry down leaves me with a creamy cedar note. A great addition to any fragrance collection.

The Calvin Klein Beauty Woman:

Authentic and true; she is accomplished and inspiring.

She believes in the power of self-knowledge, gained from the life she’s lived.

At once feminine and strong, she shapes her destiny with a charismatic allure and determined strength. Her true beauty, lies within.

The Fragrance:

Calvin Klein Beauty evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication, while capturing the spirit of a woman who is beautiful from the inside out, with an aura that radiates.

A new interpretation of a lily – a neo-lily – is the heart and soul of Calvin Klein Beauty. A sophisticated flower that is the essence of femininity, the lily is also radiant and powerful.

Bringing the neo-lily to life, ambrette seeds enhance the spicy warmth, timeless jasmine elevates the floral signature, and a trail of cedarwood brings a vibrant and magnetic beauty to the drydown.

Dry: Cedarwood

The Design:

The Calvin Klein Beauty bottle design features smooth feminine curves, set atop a luxurious glass base. A metallic silver ring encircles the glass, expressing a woman’s on going strength and confidence, while the golden liquid reflects her luminosity and inner-beauty. The metallic silver cap evokes the sculptural shapes fundamental to the Calvin Klein aesthetic.

The outer packaging is a sleek white, glossy carton featuring a vibrant silver halo, while the inner carton exudes a soft yellow glow revealing warmth, light and radiance. The carton incorporates shades of silver and white, signature Calvin Klein colors that are reminiscent of clean, spare shift dresses from the Calvin Klein Collection Runway Show.

I really like the shadow primer that comes in this palette. It’s light – and goes on beautifully. It’s not thick – and sticky like some primers.

I think the gold and bronze colors are amazing for fall. You owe it to yourself to try this new product!!

Introducing Kerastase’s New Line, Bain Nutri-Thermique!

Karastase has launched a new line of haircare products, and they are amazing! Introducing their new line, Bain-Nutri-Thermique! I tried these products, and I absolutely adore them.

The purpose of this line is to provide dry or damaged hair with intense nourishment. My hair is definitely on the dry and damaged side, because I dye my hair about every two months. I found that my hair really responded well to these products, and is visibly softer/smoother.

Benefits:

  • Under the effect of heat, dry hair is intensely nourished, durably soft and shiny.
  • Hair is protected from the recurring drying-out process and the harmful effects of heat-styling tools.

Technology:

Step 1: Deep Nutrition. An exclusive complex of nourishing agents operates in the most sensitised areas of the fibre, offering intense nutrition to the hair. Cleanse your hair with Bain Nutri-Thermique’s intense nutrition shampoo. $34.00 Follow with the intense conditioner. $38.00

Step 2: Heat Activation. Heat activates the thermo-reactive formula, trapping the nourishing elements deep inside the hair fibre.

Step 3: Thermic Protection. The heat-activated formula creates a protective film all around the fibre to help prevent dryness.

I have to take some time here to talk about my favorite product of the line. The thermo-reactive intense nutrition masque is out-of-this-world amazing. I’ve used this twice now, and I can literally feel the difference for almost a week. It’s pricey – but let me just say, you get A LOT for your money, and it doesn’t take a lot when you use it. I guess this would last you 6 months. LOOOOVE IT! $60.00
