Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

Clarins Golden Glow Booster opener

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful event hosted by Clarins at the Montréal Ritz-Carlton, where a truly innovative product was introduced: Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, or ‘made to measure self-tan’. Aimed at providing you with that gorgeous Summer glow, but with none of the harmful effects associated in getting a tan, three tiny drops mixed with your evening…

The Boho Rock Collection from Butter London, is a collection of 6 neutrals infused with sensuality, some texture and a whole of lot possibilities.

Well, now we can all enjoy that feeling with Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Boosting…

Now imagine living in areas where you literally need to walk miles to obtain fresh drinking water, all the while hoping it won’t run out before you get there. Or praying for a drop of rain after yet another prolonged & severe drought.

The fact that it also happens to be part of the permanent range, makes it even sweeter – I can’t stand it when I fall for a colour that’s either limited edition, or suddenly gets yanked from the…
