Would you like to go to Portofino? How about going to Portofino with Tom Ford? That’s what I did recently. Well, no, I didn’t actually go to Portofino. I was transported to this Mediterranean seaside town by his Neroli Portofino Shower Gel. I’m usually one to shy away from perfumed shower gels, but not this one – even my picky snob hubby likes it! This amazingly refreshing, not too strong shower gel has a sweet floral scent with citrus top notes to prevent its being overpowering. The bouquet is light, yet long-lasting, lingering well into the night when layered. The texture is rich, lathers generously, and rinses off squeaky clean without drying my skin. But as much as I love it, I’m even more in love with his body oil. It’s as light as a feather and absorbs into my skin instantly, leaving a glimmering glow just like a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model (okay, so I’m exaggerating – but it’s my fantasy Portofino trip with Tom and I can be anything I want to be!). It conditions and nourishes the skin and gives you a refreshed, shimmering look.
I have been a major Tom Ford freak for fifteen years. I mean, he is the ultimate snob, no? From his first collections with Gucci and Yves St. Laurent to his own eponymous line of accessories, ready to wear, and beauty products – I just can’t get enough! So, if you’re still looking for a Mother’s Day gift, get her Tom Ford Neroli Portofino products right away! They’re the next best thing to actually taking her there.
