I was recently given some Borghese Dolce Notte night cream to try. I am not big into creams and lotions, but as I inevitably get older (grrrrr) I think it only wise to give my face a little TLC so none of the tourists here in Florida mistake me for an alligator. Believe me, there are women down here whose skin does look a bit gator-ish after years of exposure and neglect. I don't want to be numbered among them.
My skin is very sensitive, so I was curious what effect it might have on my face. I can honestly say that it's a great product and I am very pleased with the results. The Vitamin A is to correct dryness and dehydration (which is something that I am especially susceptible to this time of year).
It features mallow and comfrey that calm skin and promote cell growth and a patented Acqua di vita complex that sweeps away dullness and impurites with an MPG compound (a gentle alpha-hydroxy derivative.)
 Put this on before bed - it will encourage cell turnover, yet will not clog pores. I was also glad to find that it has a very light, clean scent and is not too heavy or greasy. You can find it here or anywhere that Borghese Cosmetics are available.

Well thank you Anne! I love it when women share their thoughts on good products that they love, and this looks like a good one.
I was reminiscing this evening at TLPC about why I write a blog and the time early on that you contacted me.
I'll never forget your kindness in reaching out to me.
You are the best!

Well, we all have battles to fight and alligators too.
Oh, I had a good chuckle....gator-ish skin.
Cell turnover....what's not to love! (and that pretty package!)

MrsLittleJeans said...

I check out everyone's recommendation, and as I checked this one it was already sold out...must have been real good. Good to see you Anne! xoxo

Christy said...

You've convinced me. I need to get a night time skin routine going, now that I'm taking such good care of my dratted teeth, I should do the same for my blessed skin! :)

Anne I will definitely try this. I love Borghese cosmetics, haven't tried their creams. They used to have an amazing mud mask.

I have been using Econatural Pure Delight Body Butter at night. I like it a lot!

Come and join my gorgeous Giveaway from Splenderosa!

Good weekend!

Great tip. Everyone is experiencing some new awareness with their skin this winter. I'll have to get a sample to try.

Additional things to do in winter:
• Exfoliate every other night before night cream
• Use a good fade cream during the day (especially in winter we're all pale skinned and the cream doesn't have to compete with summers sun) yielding better results.
• Do a face mask twice a week to treat your beautiful skin

After all this is the month of romance so Love the skin you're in it reflects outward to us all. Big smile...think pretty!
