1: Natural Beauty - Georgia Louise Lift & Sculpt Butterfly Stone $45. Rose quartz has been known to have many healing benefits including anti-ageing. It’s a little confusing/mystical on how it works but to explain what it does simply – It’s a natural stone that in this case is used to message the face to help drain puffiness. It makes sense, because messaging the face especially in the morning does help with puffiness and helps drain eye bags but this stone goes a few steps forward. This products is from Georgia Louis Spa, specializing in first-class Spa and Facial Treatments located in NY Manhattan. From their website – “Regular massaging with this stone will help to drain puffiness and unwanted toxins, contour the face and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles”. This stone can be purchased directly from the website and it does not hurt that it’s shaped as a beautiful pink butterfly! Image courtesy:GeorgiaLouise.co.uk
2: The Classic – Prada Perfume Infusion d’Homme from Saks Fifth Avenue $58+. This in my opinion is the best of the best in fragrance. Technically this one is for men but I think it has a very clean unisex sent to it that smells amazing on both men and women. I wear it all the time, spray the room with it, and pretty much overall obsess over the clean sophisticated smell for the past five + years. Image courtesy: Prada at Saksfifthavenue.com
