This past Tuesday I attended the beauty breakfast to top ALL beauty events. I was able to meet with over 15 vendors at Bergdorf Goodman and learn all about their new products and some exclusives only sold at Bergdorfs. Some of the brands I know well and a few I was not familiar with, but after the event, I left wanting to learn more.
Here are a few of the brands that were there. Hopefully I should have more to report back on each in a bit.
I actually already know and adore this line, in fact, I wrote about Alterna CC Cream For Hair nearly a year ago. I still use it today. Yet I still took advantage of having a bit more applied at the event (hey, free head massage!).
Bakel is an Italian skincare line that utilizes only active ingredients which are proven more effective. The Bakel THIO-C was most interesting. It’s a revitalizing, illuminating and anti-aging serum for face, eyes, eyelids and neck. Formulated with potent antioxidant Glutathione and Vitamin C to reduce wrinkles and firm the skin, restoring freshness and vitality to the face. Its exclusive advanced formula eliminates dull skin promoting an even, glowing complexion.
Les Elixirs Precieux Christian Dior
This collection called Les Elixirs Precieux will not be available until September, but will be exclusively sold at Bergdorf’s. It’s a collection of four perfumes meant to be layered with a fragrance from Dior’s La Collection Privee fragrance to make it uniquely your own. Each of the elixirs (Oud, Amber, Rose and Musk) was inspired by a precious raw material.
Glossybox is a monthly beauty product delivery service. For $21 per month, friends, family or you will receive a beautifully wrapped box containing five to six deluxe-sized beauty products delivered directly to your doorstep. May’s Glossybox is a collaboration with Bergdorf Goodman. Not only will you receive six items carried at Bergdorf’s, but you’ll also get a $25 gift card redeemable at Bergdorf’s (works online too). So basically they pay you $4!
Hampton Sun is a luxury skincare, suncare and fragrance brand founded in Southampton and inspired by the beaches and lifestyle of eastern Long Island. Hampton Sun’s goal is to bring glamour back to smart sunbathing with safe, sophisticated, beautiful formulas and effective SPF protection for the entire family (kids included). Their proprietary formulas feature a cocktail of beautiful natural ingredients, vitamins, antioxidants and moisturizers along with the most advanced suncare technology available.
Hermes Nomad Natural Sprays 2014 Collection
Four new colors have been added to the Hermes collection of refillable leather covered fragrance atomizer that houses 2.5 fl oz of Hermes Nomad Natural Sprays or any Hermes scent. Beautiful, special, decadent, luxurious and totally Hermes.
Available this fall in-store only.
I have had my Illuminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase on my pillow ever since I reviewed it last October. I can’t sleep without it! Now Iluminage will soon be launching an anti-aging laser (the sculptural piece seen above to the right) which will mimic an in-office doctor visit at home and for a fraction of the price. Who wouldn’t love that?
Julien Farel Haircare
Julien Farel is a new to Bergdorf’s anti-aging haircare line. The French celebrity hair stylist (who complimented my eyes and ran his fingers through my hair) who was with Frederic Fekkai until he launched his own brand in 2001. His Vitamin Restore is game changing. The all-in-one shampoo and conditioner that you apply to dryish hair restores hair to its virgin state. It regenerates, revitalizes, protects and delicately cleanses while leaving the scalp hydrated and hair smoother. You can see results after just one use…I can attest. It’s rather amazing.
The Lancer Method line by Dr. Lancer is a 3-step anti-aging skincare regimen that trains skin to act and therefore look younger. Now the same technology will be available for the body at Bergdorf Goodman.
Maison Francis Kurkdijan Fragrances
Paris-born Francis Kurkdjian is revered as one of the world’s most talented perfumers; he worked behind the scenes for many years, creating fragrances for fashion houses such as Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Dior, and Jean Paul Gaultier. In 2009, he introduced his own fragrance house, Maison Francis Kurkdjian. While the sensual and light ‘Aqua Universalis’ scent is my new favorite, I can’t wait to try the new fragrance ‘754’ developed for and only available at Bergdorf Goodman this fall. From what I smelled, it’s going to be a sellout.
This fragrance line from Barcelona with four generations of a distinguished line perfumers. Now Bergdorf’s has a fragrance created exclusively for them and you. ‘Very Private’ captures the perfumer’s hypnotic and magical impression of Bergdorf Goodman and Central Park in springtime. Comprised of citrus, fruit and floral notes it dries down to a musky and captivating scent.
Robert Piquet Fragrance
Who doesn’t know the iconic Fracas perfume? The Parisian designer is probably most remembered for his luxurious and timeless fragrances which were founded in 1944. Look for Gardenia De Robert Piguet at Bergdorf Goodman this September.
