Traveling this winter, visiting? Give the glamorous gift of beauty: Borghese

See also

Are you traveling this season to visit friends and family or just running around a lot? Whether you're celebrating one of the December holidays or just to get renewed for the New Year, this is the perfect time to get gorgeous with Borghese. They have lots of special things to give a friend or yourself . . . some of which I was happy to be hosted to experience!

The brand arises out of beauty treatments dating back to 14th century Tuscany springs, with nourishing waters and healing muds. Even if you don't have a big chunk of time to spend on yourself in the next few weeks -- aww! -- a few dabs taking a few seconds is really going to help.

I love how modern the Borghese delivery systems are: keeping luxe beauty potions clean, easy and quick to apply.

Acqua Ristorativo Immediato Instant Eye Revitalizer is a sheer fluid applied by rollerball. It's something you could chill and really, really feel better after a late night. The fluid and applicator help move out the puffies! This is what they say about it:

  • Restores and maintains natural skin moisture, lea
  • Heals and soothes eye area with Allantoin
  • ving skin velvety and smooth with Provitamin B5
  • Creates a smooth, elastic coating that immediately lifts the skin
  • Acqua di Vita® Complex help hydrates skin

Sometimes, what you need is a lot more creaminess, richness for the eyes, especially this time of year. Acqua Ristorativo Occhi Eye Treatment is a balm-like lotion that comes out with a pump. This is what they say about it:

  • Softens and moisturizes dehydrated skin around the eye area, as well as reduce puffiness, and increase firmness and tone – the most important characteristics of youthful, healthy-looking skin with Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Avocado
  • Helps to preserve the skin’s natural moisture, elasticity and tone with Sodium Hyaluronate
  • Acqua di Vita® Complex help hydrates skin

When does a serum not feel like a serum? When it's liquid, not gel-like. This makes it perfect-perfect when you're wearing makeup: it's not another layer, it won't make foundation slide off. That's Acqua Ristorativo Hydrating Concentrate for you. This is what they say about it:

  • Helps preserve the most important characteristics of youthful healthy- looking skin including helping skin feel supple and toned.
  • Formulated with:
    • Acqua di Vita Complex to help hydrate and energize skin
    • Two varieties of seaweed (Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract and Hydrolyzed Corallina Officinalis Extract) plus Watermelon Extract to protect skin against the damage of UV radiation
    • Pro-Vitamin B5 to help skin retain its natural moisture
    • Uses a Bio-Nymph Peptide complex to help protect skin DNA from external influences.
    • Dermatologist Tested. Allergy Tested. Suitable for all skin types.

Don't you love the idea of applying your moisturizer in the morning and being protected through all of the traveling you do that day? The way it is with packing these days, that's a blessing! Crema Ristorativo-24 Continuous Hydration Moisturizer is applied by a touch-pump, like some of those nail polish removers from back in the day. You'll find the rich lotion texture soothing. Here's what they say about it:

  • Helps preserve the most important characteristics of youthful healthy- looking skin including helping skin feel supple and toned.
  • Formulated with:
    • Acqua di Vita Complex to help hydrate and energize skin
    • Two varieties of seaweed (Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract and Hydrolyzed Corallina Officinalis Extract) plus Watermelon Extract to protect skin against the damage of UV radiation
    • Pro-Vitamin B5 to help skin retain its natural moisture
    • Dermatologist Tested. Allergy Tested. Suitable for all skin types.

Here's a trip in the way-back machine . . . when I was a volunteer intern for a politician in DC who became Vice-President, I was short on cash. I knew I needed to look polished, but new suits just weren't in the cards. I took myself to a luxe department store and headed to the Borghese counter. I knew that their color cosmetics put one in a different realm, with the right shades, chic finishes. Lip Style is a terrific little set of jumbo lip crayons that have shades that run the gamut from neutral to warm to cool. You could share them with a friend! They're self-sharpening and have a more sophisticated finish than I've seen with lip crayons, a better sheen and color payoff.
