Armani Crema Nera Giveaway Contest

I've saved the pièce de résistance for our last September Armani contest! The generous Armani Beauty Team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland donated a Crema Nera Regenerating Cream ($230) for this week's Best Things in Beauty Giveaway Contest. Wow!

Crema Nera is Armani's luxurious skin care centerpiece. You can read about the Crema Nera Restoring Serum at our July posting or the Crema Nera OMC3 SPF 15 at our August posting.

Here's how Armani Beauty describes Crema Nera...

Crema Nera is a unique cell regenerating cream inspired by the Italian island of Pantelleria. Containing a unique formulation of obsidian, a natural mineral compound extracted from the petrified lava on Pantelleria, Crema Nera perfectly captures the earth's rejuvenating secrets. This exceptional, patented formula is scientifically proven to actively restore and revitalize skin's natural radiance and regenerate surface cells.
  • Boosts skin radiance
  • Helps refine and perfect skin texture
  • Nourishes and hydrates
Here's how I describe it: a heavy-duty moisturizer with a lightweight feel. Crema Nera effectively banishes dryness, evens skin tone, and adds the radiance associated with healthy skin. I have used it as my day moisturizer (in place of La Mer), and it tames my dry skin. I have seen it take the redness out of one friend's skin, and "light up" another. Pretty cool!

How can you win this incredible giveaway? Just e-mail and tell us what your favorite Best Things in Beauty Armani posting has been. There are a bunch of them because I love my Armani cosmetics and skin care. A little creativity in your e-mail won't hurt (a green-eyed monster won an Armani foundation for Valerie). A small team of judges will select the winner, who will be announced on September 22.

The contest deadline is 5:00 pm Eastern time on Monday, September 21. I am posting this giveaway on Free!Grechen, my favorite site for giveaway contests.

Don't forget that Saks in Chevy Chase has an Armani Beauty event coming up on September 25 and 26. The events are always fun, and Tim Quinn will be there both days. And, you will get to meet Loyd!
