A friend was not too enthusiastic about Garnier's Nutritionist Omega Skin Daily Renewing Serum, containing omega 3 and 6. It supposedly targets fine lines, boosts radiance and hydrates for 24 hours, but she thought it to be too thin and somewhat sticky, and she got the impression it never really absorbed into her skin and left a thin layer on it. On a positive note, the fragrance was pleasant; after applying the serum, you should follow with a day or night cream. A 50-ml. bottle is NIS 135. Dior Fahrenheit 32 eau de toilette for men was appreciated to be very refreshing and bracing, almost like a dry vodka. The name Fahrenheit 32 indicates the temperature at which water freezes, and this is a cool fragrance indeed, with notes of orange, vetiver and vanilla. The bottle looks simple and elegant, with see-through glass at the bottom that turns into a cloudy white, symbolizing water becoming ice. A 50-ml. bottle is NIS 321, and 100 ml. is NIS 458. A friend with thick, curly hair was pleased with the Shea Absolute Repair hair therapy mask by Saryna Key, which came in a 500-ml. container. The mask leaves the hair soft and manageable, and the best part was the practical lid that you can just flip open, instead of screwing it off with wet hands, which is not always so easy when you're in the shower. For best results, you should use the mask once or twice a week. You can get Saryna Key shea fruit oil products at selected hair saloons; the Shea Absolute Repair mask is NIS 140. At this time of year when you start changing linens in your closet to prepare yourself for colder nights, it is nice to use some linen fragrance to keep your closet smelling fresh. Spring has fragrances that are suitable for linens, towels and silk flowers. We tried the Lily of the Valley on our linens and, used in moderation, it made them smell sweetly fresh. The Spring fragrances for linens and silk flowers are sold at the Golf & Co. stores for NIS 38 to NIS 45 per spray bottle. The new Crêma shower cream body oils, a combination of shower cream and oils, are a real pampering treat in the shower. The shower creams are enriched with moisturizers and vitamin E, and because of the added oil, your skin feels soft after the shower, so you can skip the body lotion, if you like. The Crêma shower creams come in the variations Pure Sensation, Fresh Mind and Sleek Touch, and cost NIS 20 for a 500-ml. bottle. The Ideal Light Brush-on Illuminator by Estee Lauder is a concealer that is super-easy to apply, with a button at the bottom that with each twist brings out the cream on the little brush on the top. The cream can be applied to hide under-eye circles or retouch makeup; the stick can easily be put in your pocket book, if you like to touch up your makeup during the day. The price is NIS 155.
