Happy Beauty Lovers Day!
If you’re reading this you’re probably a fan of all things beauty every day—but today is all about us! Honestly, I wasn’t even aware that this “holiday” was a thing, and we can thank Natura Bissé for bringing this to our attention. And while we’re at it, let’s all wish Natura Bissé a happy 40th anniversary (yet they don’t look a day over 25)!
A few weeks ago I received a lovely package from this Spanish skincare brand (which is a long-time favorite of mine) to kick off the Beauty Lovers Day and milestone birthday celebration, so I thought it was only fitting to try a few of the products they sent along this morning. First up was the Diamond Cocoon Bath & Shower Balm, which is only available as a gift-with-ANY-purchase. (All the more reason to shop the Natura Bissé site!) I’m a big fan of facial cleansing balms, but this was the first time I’ve ever tried a body version and it really got my morning off to a great start. The luxuriously-scented creamy balm transforms to a sudsy treat as you massage it into damp skin—and my skin was so hydrated afterwards I didn’t even need to apply moisturizer.
After stepping out of the shower and applying my vitamin C serum, I slathered on a generous layer of the Diamond Extreme. Billed as an “anti-aging bio-regenerative extreme cream,” it packs a major moisturizing punch along with skin-stimulating artemia salina (a plankton extract, in case you were wondering) to firm, protect and revitalize the skin. I can say that I’m officially hooked after just one use, and I’m looking forward to this becoming a staple in my routine.
These goodies arrived on the heels of a few other new products, including the Diamond Cocoon Ultimate Shield Protective Mist—that I’m absolutely obsessed with. Designed to shield the skin from indoor and outdoor pollution while delivering a burst of moisture anytime and anywhere, it physically blocks pollution particles from sticking to the skin and helps fight free radicals generated by blue light (and we all need that).
