Win a Luxurious Radiant Face Cream by Acqua di Parma Italian Resort Collection

No review or commentary today, but a delicious draw for readers of Perfume Shrine. The luxurious Blu Mediterraneo Italian Resort Collection has several worthwhile products in line (NB. I love the Dry Oil for the Body myself, perfect to use on the legs for wearing with sexy sandals and shorter skirts or capri pants and it's nice for an all over sheen as well, not greasy at all). They are great for a slice of Mediterranean sun and warmth now that summer is looming and more skin is exposed with all the shorts, the cut out blouses, the swimsuits....

This is what the Acqua di Parma site claims:
"A rich, soft cream refreshing to the touch. With a moisturizing formula that’s dermatologically tested and non-occlusive, it’s suitable for all skin types, even the more sensitive ones. It caresses the face in a film of softness and light. The active ingredients for renewal - shea butter and liquorice extract - act in synergy with Mediterranean Oxygenating ComplexTM to moisturise the skin and strengthen its defences against external agents."

For one lucky reader, I have a brand new sealed Radiant Face Cream 50ml jar. To be eligible please put a comment and share your  (current or favorite) skincare routine. Draw is open internationally and comment eligibility ends on Sunday at midnight.

  3. That sounds perfect for Madrid's dry summer. Currently plain and simple; La Roche posay cleanser, C E Ferulic serum and sunscreen from Lancome. At night cleanser serum and Darphin cream. Good luck to all and thanks Elena!

    I like Acqua di Parma scents very much and I am curious to try their skincare. Thank you for the draw!
    My skin is tricky. It needs hydration, but it is also prone to acne. In the morning I alternate between Lush Kalamazoo and Mad Hippie cream cleanser. Then I apply Thayers Witch Hazel Toner, Lush Enchanted Eye cream and Mad Hippie face cream. I use TonyMoly Dear Me BBcream as a sunscreen and foundation if I leave my flat. At night I use Lush Ultrabland as a cleanser, then Thayers Toner again and Derma E Hydrating Eye Creme. I do not use a night-time facial moisturizer. I typically exfoliate my face twice a week.

    Thanks for the draw. I have no skincare routine right now :(( I've run out of a bunch of stuff and haven't been able to decide on replacements. I don't want to spend a lot of money, but I hate buying cheap stuff that doesn't work. Really, I just hate making decisions.

    Thank you for the giveaway. I am not at all brand loyal, but I love Strivectin's eye cream and Lush's Charity Pot for a moisturizer. Of course, sunscreen is a must.

    I didn't know Aqua made skin care-cool!

    Currently using some Elizabeth Arden creams-they are good quality, i like the smell. I feel funny saying I use such an old fashioned brand, but there is almost nothing to buy in the town where i live.
    Sincerely,
    Carole

    Happy owner here of Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile EDP, so very interested in other Acqua di Parma products.

    I'd love to try the skin cream, although I'm more likely to use it on hands and arms than face (although licorice can be very soothing, shea butter might be rich for my face). I use very light products on my slighty oily, roseaceous face. Right now, just a liquid cleanser for sensitive skin, an Olay Regenerist serum/primer, and at night a hyaluronic acid gel cream. Very frustrated that Neutrogena discontinued its excellent 3-in-1 salicylic acid lotion. It was about the only easy to find, affordable salicylic acid and it kept my skin clear and comfortable. Guess I'll have to go for Paula's Choice. Also looking to try some Camellia oil.

    Thanks for the generous draw offer.

    I'm a very basic person as far as skin care goes -- I use raw cocoanut oil everywhere. I get it from the supermarket. So I'd be thrilled to be schooled in this luxurious product. Thanks for the draw.

  14. Oh I would love to win this!
    I clean my face with Shiseido's Benefiance cream , Clinique yellow cream for day and Boots night cream. I am not sure about serums but I do have Avene's at the moment... seems nice but ... do they really do anything Helg???

  15. I used to wear Clinique day, night and eye treatment but this seems fantastic! Many thanks for this drawing!

  16. Thank you so much for the giveaway! I follow an overly complicated Korean skincare routine (double cleanse, toner, emulsion, serum, possibly a mask, moisturizer, day/night cream).

  17. These days I am lucky if I remember to put on sunblock before I go out into the (very bright) sun! My treat is laneige face cream, which just feels perfectly luxurious and soothing. Thanks for the drawing!

  18. I have used Neutrogena sesame body oil for years because it smells good, works well and doesn't cost a fortune. Other than that, I use some Mario Badescu cleanser and Ole Henriksen moisturizer

  20. Sorry if I've posted a bunch of times - it keeps timing out. I've been using Josie Maran lately, and using a lot of oil on my face has cleared up a ton of skin issues I've had for years.

  21. Woohoo, I love trying new skin products so I'd love to be entered. :-)
    Lately I got hooked on L'Occitane, I have a serum (once I tried nothing else was good enough so this is third I bought in a row), Divine lotion and heavy cream for night to feed my skin.

    I want my face caressed by this cream!
    The one product that I have used for 30 odd years is Estee Lauder Night Repair. Every time I decide to switch I do not notice the difference that I do with this serum.
    What a great giveaway!

  24. Certainly sounds like a nutritious and therapeutic treat for the skin. Just the Acqua Di Parma name connotes quality so my skin awaits the possibility. Currently, I'm addicted to La Roche Posay Redermic during the day and Roc moisturizer pre bed and Chanel eye cream. If you look in my cabinet, you'll see a veritable department store of products that just look good but did nothing. Thanks for this opportunity.

  25. Currently I use a melange of creams--mostly samples from purchase. Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream is one I love and bought a jar a while back. Also love Guerlain's Orchidee Imperiale The Cream, but it's terribly expensive. Would love to try Acqua di Parma's!

    Recently, I've been using Clinique or Lancome face creams (and I do not use a lighter weight one for summer). I like to use a gentle exfoliant about every ten days.

  29. Cetaphil as a cleanser and whatever samples I have as a moisturizer. I'd love to try this as I like several of their fragrances. Thanks for the draw.

  31. My daily routine is cleanse, tone and moisturize with Dr. Perricone products. However, I would love to try something new and Acqua di Parma has good products. I have some of their perfumes but not any beauty products Thanks for this opportunity.

  32. Wow! This sounds great! My current regime is using 1:10 skin serum in the morning topped with Keihl's Facial Fuel and Clinique eye cream.

  33. I take my long time to perform my mourning routine: Cleanser (Eve Lom), SKII toner, Visonnaire serum (Lancome), Rejuvenating Serum (Tata Harper), Vinosource moisturizer (Caudalie), Diorsnow (SPF) in the morning. A few days a week I introduce: AHAs, Mud cleansers, moisturizing masks, special serums (radiance, hydration, spots).
    Thanks for this draw! Amazing.

    I would love some luxurious cream to start off my summer survival skincare. Our weather is so up and down lately!! Currently using Philosophy cleanser and face oils at night....been trying different ones and love them.

    I have dry and sensitive skin and would love to try this cream. Shea butter is well tolerated by my skin, but I have not yet found a favourite cream for day (no luck with different eco/bio brands tested lately). I use Filorga Optim-Eyes as eye cream, Ceramide Plump Perfect exfoliator from E. Arden and the Eight Hour cream plus various day creams and night creams, all depending on season and skin condition. Serums I have used lately seem too harsh (too much acids, I guess), so I am still looking for the perfect combination of creams and serums.

  38. I like bath oils a lot - few brands do them. So I need to try this soon.

  39. This looks like a wonderful face cream! I am currently using a combination of Paula's Choice, CeraVe and Orlane.

    I really don't have a proper and coordinated routine lately, just using random products I bought along the way. None of them are giving me the wow effect and tempting me to rebuy, with the exception of a Lavera face tonique. It's a German bio brand and the products I tried so far are lovely, plus really affordable.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The cream looks lovely and I would love to try it!
    my routine in the AM is: micellar water to prepare the skin, then Sesderma Vit-C fluid and then a SPF cream like EL Day Wear. In the PM is: washing my face with Nuxe's honey cleaser, then a serum, that I change depending on the time of the year, and on top Laneige Water Pack.
    Thanks for the draw!

    I have been using Origins for years. I also like Estee Lauder, which owns Origins, and has some similar products, I have noticed. Dr. Hauschka has a moisture mask I can't do without in the winter. One way I save money is by using drugstore cleanser. My go-to is Aveeno cleansing pads. I haven't investigated the matter thoroughly, but my hypothesis is that cleansers are relatively cheap to produce and the high end companies try to sell them by convincing the buyer that their moisturizers, serums, creams, etc. will somehow work better with the matching cleanser. My thought is that cleansers do not need a lot of bells and whistles like extra antioxidants or herbal complexes that just get washed away immediately. The exception to this might be some calming or soothing agents. So I go the drugstore for my cleanser which will gently clean and help exfoliate my skin and invest in the high potency creams from my favorite brands. I would love the chance to try something new. As always, thanks for the draw, Elena!
