Screen Shot 2014-12-05 at 4.46.51 PMOh, skin. It’s like we have five good minutes with it, somewhere between puberty and 35 (that’s not very long now, is it?), and very often we tend to forget about how important it is.

Well, the goal is to stay pretty as long as possible, and no makeup and accessories will give us that unless we take perfect care of our skin. That means removing our makeup every night before we go to bed (no exceptions), washing our face, massaging, or letting a professional take care of us.

Or, maybe we can take care great of ourselves, thanks to a new product on the market:

Natural beauties rejoice, #Lavender Rose is here

lavender roseIt’s time to treat our skin the way Mother Nature intended.

We bet you’ve heard from some lovely ladies who enjoy the benefits of old age now – There were a lot less skin problems back in the old days. Why? Well, among other things, the beauty products they used were natural. Many of them came from our mothers’ and grandmothers’ homes and kitchens. And you know how beautiful they are.

But fast forward to today, exactly how much free time do you have to prepare your own natural and safe beauty product? Will you get all the right ingredients? Will it have the same effect?

Lucky for us, today we have people we can trust to make them for us. For us obsessed with treating our skin the best possible way.

And it must be a week of roses her at POSHGLAM, because Vineyard Hill Naturals (gifted) just made our day with their new eco collection, with a pretty name such as Lavender Rose.

It does look wonderful. They’ve been using ultra-pure ingredients that are at least 95% naturally derived and certified organic, and formulations that provide exceptionally nourishing and regenerative powers for the skin. Seriously, we can feel our skin coming to life just by talking about this. And knowing how beneficial grapeseed oil is for the skin, we were thrilled when we found out it’s a part of this rewarding combination.

But what actually makes this eco collection charming is the fact that it falls into the affordable luxury category. Because our skin is so precious and every girl should have the chance to use perfect products, the prices range between $5-$15, and there’s hand cream, body butter, body lotion, shower gel, bar soap and aromatherapy soy-wax candles.

So that every part of us is perfectly taken care of, and in a natural way.

Roses de Chloe, A rose by any other name

Roses de Chloe

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

Shakespeare was right. Give the rose any other name and it would smell just as sweet, just as lovely and inspirational. In fact, so inspirational, the fragrance houses keep producing all kinds of beautifully consuming scents, in search for the perfect bottle of rosy liquid charm. Bvlgari did it, with the romantic and sugary Rose Essentielle, adored by women around the globe. Then Valentino, experienced in rocky princesses, honored us with the edgy Rock ’n Rose, making young girls everywhere fight for the last one in the store. And then came Tom Ford with the sexy Café Rose and swept us all off our feet.

So do roses ever go out of style? The perfume masters say no, and we couldn’t agree more. And there are so many different roses around the world, it’s only natural to have so many fragrances.

But then, among all sweet scents, all signature bottles, rises Roses de Chloé, a fragrance so special, it personifies the uniqueness of every woman. An Ode to Roses, if you will. Leave it to the Chloé house to speak to the rose and turn it into something we can be proud to wear. To reveal every secret the rose can hold. And to turn it into a perfume so magical, it matches the rest of Chloé’s elegant variations.

The mastery of Michel Almairac and Mylène Alran brings us this airy, luminous and subtle scent, to remind us of a thousand petals, the sensation of bergamot, gradually joined by a heart of damascene rose essence, modernized with a magnolia accord. And on the skin, a trail of white musk and amber, the signature of the Chloé house.

And because by now, all our feminine sensations are awakened, we can enjoy the cherry on top, which is the beautiful silhouette of the iconic Eau de Parfum by Chloé, the luxury glass bottle, crowned with a silver top and a transparent cap. And all of it enlaced with a blush pink ribbon.

We’re batting our eye-lashes here.

Look how they managed to capture everything Roses de Chloé (gifted) represents with this beautiful, hypnotic film. Titled The Blowing Roses, it expresses the delicate and feminine side of the Chloé woman through the blooming roses metaphor. Each woman represents a petal, dancing gracefully with the wind’s breeze. As the flowers bloom, the petals multiply and spread to create a kaleidoscope of roses.

How to Flaunt Your Waterline, Without Looking Like A Clown

Waterline Laura MercierGetting the most of your eyeliner takes precision, and if you are like me, the liner type, then you’ll appreciate these fine tips. Some makeup artists suggest coating your waterline with a white kohl liner to make eyes pop. I prefer a dash of color, to make the silhouette of the shape more defined, it’s a surefire way to combat sleepy eyes. Note: use color within reason to avoid looking like a dragged-up queen. For enhancing the waterline, both Laura Mercier and Bobby Brown style prodigious products for augmenting the inside of the eye. Laura Mercier calls hers Tightline Cake Eyeliner ($24) and Bobby Brown uses a Cake Liner; both attain the same effect with an outcome that is clean and defined, sans the smudged or smoky vibe. I prefer Laura Mercier for day, and Nars’ Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner ($24) for night.

Since my eyes are hazel I prefer to enhance the green over gray, I opt for Laura Mercier’s Tightline in Forest Green and Nars, Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Abby Road. I don’t recommend the waterproof spray for Laura Mercier, and I’m not a fan of using this product anywhere other than on the waterline. I’m precise with my makeup. Back in my teens and early twenties I glammed with glitter, now that I’m in my thirties I prefer a clean, crisp and select choice of color in very specific use(s).

A foolproof way to line your upper lid without any clean up with a wet a q-tip, is doable with use of Nars Eyeliner Stylo. It’s important that you don’t over-emphasize the eye or create a cake face with your beauty. I’m bored of the selfies on the web with fake-up that’s hiding real beauty behind product overload—I can assure you any man can spot a pound of makeup a mile away. It’s important to use cosmetics to polish already existing features and to avoid a cartoon makeover. Take my advice for liquid liner and the waterline and you’ll be happy with your improvements. These products can be misconstrued, so do your research and remember: liquid liner on the top, and water liner on the bottom, and draw yourself an original face, without painting it on like a clown or soon your adoring fans will turn into hilarious fanatics.

Tom Ford, Open Bouquet | Cafe Rose

Iconic American fashion designer Tom Ford knows a thing or two about smelling good. It’s rumored that he enjoys bathing, quite often; some say even up to four times a day. Thus when a bottle of his Cafe Rose Eau de Parfum (1.7 oz, $215) recently fell into my lap (gifted) I was intrigued and pleasantly engaged. On one part questioning does Ford bath in parfum, and on the other enticed as I’m quite fond of anything that contains elements of rose. Café Rose is part of a series of four fragrances’ comprised in Jardin Noir, which are said to represent the ‘darker’ and more ‘thrilling’ side of the flowers: hyacinth, rose, lily and narcissus. Essentially three precious rose essences ballet with striking spices and coffee to make up the aromas of Café Rose. The notes unravel with saffron, black pepper and Rose de Mai at the top, and continue with middle notes of Turkish rose oil and Bulgarian rose and then finish with base notes of incense, resin, amber, sandalwood and patchouli.

Exploring the opening bouquet invites the olfactory sense into a light fresh and sugary rose smell that moves toward a large dose of white musk and smoky incense. The white musk is rather substantial initially, yet decreases over time where tiny elements of coffee and incense emerge. Overall this is not too rich of a composition; it’s well-blended, even and not overly sweet-smelling. The projection is long-lasting; I smelled remains of it the subsequent morning. Since a fragrance is reasonably one on one with your body chemistry and with any of the five senses individual recollections arrive; it is relevant to sample Cafe Rose. Perhaps one of the four Jardin Noir blooms will conjure up an individual aroma personally to suit your style.

Bonus buy: unique to Tom Ford parfum this scent is unisex; it is just ‘another’ something special to share with your lover.
