Diamonds are a girl’s best friend


I have been a beauty junkie since I was old enough to walk. My grandmother’s vanity table rivaled that of Neiman Marcus and it was my favorite place to play. I’d carefully open each bottle and jar and rub all the delicious smelling creams on my face and neck, mimicing the circular massage motions I’d see my mother and grandmother perform daily. As a teenager I used La Prarie eye cream all over my face because I liked the consistency better than the face creams. By college I had tried everything from Shiseido to Sisley and had an evening routine that took nearly an hour. To this day I am a beauty fanatic, although with a toddler son I have less time than I used to. Gone are the days of hourlong baths with various masks that cleanse, peel, refresh, rejuvenate, and finally, moisturize. I am lucky if I get a monthly facial (and this is a girl who did 5 masks a week and had bi-weekly facials) so when I discovered Natura Bisse’s Diamond Extreme line of products, I knew there was hope for my poor neglected skin. The minute I tried the Diamond extreme cream my skin became velvety soft, and not in the slippery gross way that some heavy creams induce. This cream melts into your pores and heals your skin from within, gone are the lines from my son’s 5 am wake up calls, banished are the uneven patches of dry skin from hormonal changes afterbirth, in it’s place is glowing shimmering skin. Skin I had in college. Not kidding! I have always had skin that girls commented on, they called me “Luminous” until I gave birth. Well, the nickname is back and the $300 is well worth the price. Available at Neiman Marcus.

    Oh, I am so glad you’ve decided to do beauty snob. I am so much more well versed in products than I am in fashion. So this should be fun.

    Your posting about Natura Bisse is so timely because not FIVE minutes before I saw your post, I sent my girlfriend an e-mail asking when we were going to Neiman’s to get our Natura Bisse facials and Laura Mercier make-up done. Natura Bisse has been my favorite skin care line since Neiman’s started carrying it. It is like a miracle for my skin.

    When I was younger, my skin was so awful that sometimes people made fun of me. With regular facials and Natura Bisse products, now I only get compliments on my skin!
