You have all succumbed to the mineral and brands have rushed into the breach makeup, oh how rewarding. Imagine a simple powder that you pay almost the price of a foundation. And it is not finished, it was announced pretty boxes with mineral powder for face and eyes!
After the makeup, the latest trend is to find the virtues of precious minerals in skin care creams. Finally, nothing new because already in the time of ancient Egypt, women were masks based minerals - with gold, silver, turquoise and lapis lazuli ground to regenerate the skin - not to mummify.
No wonder then that the Bulgari brand launches in cosmetics, relying on its expertise in the jewelery and investing in the science of minerals with the support of independent laboratories.
Thus was born "Gem essence", a combination of fine and precious stones, rich in trace elements (copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, silicon) that is found in every care brand to bring vitality and protection to the skin.
Precious stones (sapphire, malachite, tourmaline, citrine ...) are used in liquid or powder form micronized and bring in their range.
- Line light: brightness & hydration
- Valuable Line: Anti-Aging
- Cleansing Line
I have therefore made the Galeries Lafayette the week where the brand was introduced with great fanfare and is sold worldwide exclusive.
I had the right to a mini-diagnosis of skin on the corner. Although very simple, since the range is reduced, the diagnosis was quite fair and helpful. Part of a moisturizer for dry skin rather, the test reveals that the texture of the "light cream" is too fat and that "emulsion light" suits me better. Ok, so the test!
Packaging: simple and sweet. The silver lid jars recall the design of rings brand. Given the luxury positioning via codes of beauty and jewelery, I would have imagined a more packaging high-quality and distinctive. Some bottles remind me of the products already seen in Nocibé ... I also find that the colors are dull and a bit worn. No idea of the profile of the consumers targeted with this range, but the launch in cosmetics do not rejuvenate the brand.
Texture: very fluid, soft and fresh. It absorbs quickly and leaves a thin oily film.
The smell: rather floral, sweet as the color of the packaging. But you know, it's not very young, not very fresh.
Color of the emulsion: I would have imagined pearly glitter to make a point with the concept of gemstones. But no! The price: about 120euros pot 125ml. Of true luxury! Finally, it is nothing compared serum Lumere sold 230euros pot 30ml!
All this does not convince me to buy the bottle and coincidentally, no sample was available when I was in full promotional week! Sorry girls, but I can not tell you more about the vibrant and moisturizing properties. If you test these products at home, let me know what you think.
I tested against by a sample of the cleansing foam glow. A fairly rich texture, a very sweet smell and a feeling of hydration. I do not necessarily find that my skin more radiance but it is clean and fresh!
Also renseign me ant on the web, I read an article in the Geneva Triibune some distrust concept. And is quoted Benjamin Rondeau, professor at the University of Nantes: "I have not seen any medical study or any drug that can be said that the use of precious stones can have any effect on the improvement of the skin ".
One thing is certain: the dream is there.
