If you read my blog, you know I'm more than a little obsessed with the luxury skincare brand, Valmont. As a TV personality, my face is important... and mine goes through a lot. I wear loads of makeup every day, then scrub it all off every night. Not to mention, the awful sun damage from my reckless youth. So, it's worth it for me to spend the extra money taking care of my skin.
Valmont is based in medical research so their products penetrate deeper and work with your body to renew and repair. If you try the line, you immediately see and feel the difference. In September, Valmont is adding a new trio of products to their l'Elixir des Glaciers collection. It's called the Essence of Bees and I was lucky enough to try it before it hits the stores!!!
I thought Valmont was luxurious before, but this collection blew my mind. I felt like a princess opening the oversized black and gold box. The copper-toned bottles inside are nothing short of Hollywood glamour. If you really want to splurge, Valmont's artistic director, Didier Guillon even created an 18 carat gold-plated sheath inspired by a honeycomb!
What's inside is also special. The formula contains honey, propolis and royal jelly. Honey is a moisturizer and skin repairer, while propolis is coveted for its purifying virtues. Royal jelly is the most precious of the hive's products and helps with inflammation. I've tried inexpensive products with these ingredients before, but had no clue how powerful they can be. The cheap creams and lotions at the drug store don't do these ingredients justice.
Not only are the products good for your skin, but they're good for mother nature, too. With this launch, Valmont is saving bees in Switzerland and investing in 50 beehives to sustainably use for their products going forward. During the month of September, for every purchase of Essence of Bees, Valmont will donate $10 to the Pollinator Partnership to support the health of bees in North America. I can definitely get behind (or should I say bee-hind) that!
Essence of Bees includes the Cure Majestueuse Votre Visage ($350), Masque Majestueux Votre Visage ($425) and Serum Majestueux Vos Yeux ($390), available at Saks 5th Avenue and at Valmont's online boutique.
