La Mer The Replenishing Collection
This 2-piece collection wraps winter-worn skin in a layer of lavish renewal.

The velveteen Lip Balm with a hint of mint calms, restores and conditions with the most tender touch.

Who can debate that everyone needs a little La Mer in their life? The La Mer Replenishing collection is a dynamic duo consisting of their best selling lip balm and hand cream. This is Enrique’s go-to set for clients dashing in for a thoughtful gift on the go. The silky formulations moisturize and soothe and are perfect to have on hand (literally). This set is especially wonderful for the colder months when our skin tends to need a little extra TLC.

For glamour on the go – this multi-faceted palette is sure to be a showstopper. The newest addition to TOM FORD’s winter soleil collection includes 4 eyeshadows, blush, and highlighter encased in an ultra chic white and gold clutch and allows you to create a multitude of looks. Enrique advises “The cool blue undertones in the cheek color included in this palette work wonders to neutralize redness.”

Natura Bissé Diamond Duo
Sugar and spice and diamonds are nice! This luxurious gift set will leave your skin moisturized, radiant, and glowing. Diamond Extreme Cream and Diamond Extreme Eye are the perfect nourishing pair to add to anyone’s skincare essentials, especially in harsh weather. Dr. Sherber’s tip for knowing when a moisturizer suits very dry skin: “one low in water content and high in emollients will pass this test: you can hold the jar upside down and it won’t budge.” Let’s just say that Diamond Extreme Cream passes with flying colors. This set is truly a special treat, since both products are full sized and the eye cream is included at no cost.
[$600 value] This set pairs full sizes of Natura Bissé's best-sellers for optimal moisture and environmental defense.
set includes: Diamond Extreme Cream (50 ml / 1.7 oz jar) and Diamond Extreme Eye (25 ml / 0.85 oz jar) with a ceramic disk lavender diffuser in an elegant package
