Recently, I was given the gift of gold - samples of Chantecaille's Nano Gold Energizing Cream. I have used up my samples, and I love it! Unfortunately, I am going to have to wait for a Friends & Family sale to purchase it. It costs $420.
Chantecaille says that Nano Gold Energizing Cream is a breakthrough product that helps the skin cope with stress. Infinitely small nano-particles of pure gold join forces with silk and botanicals to recharge, re-energize, and rebuild every skin type at the cellular level. The botanicals in the ingredient list make up a who's who of the garden.
Chantecaille explains that gold has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and detoxifying properties. Silk, a natural protein, is highly moisturizing and also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Together, they act as a regenerative and preserving force, helping skin maximize its energies to fight the aging effects of stress. They work to stimulate cell metabolism, boost collagen production, and create an effective UVA/UVB block. A potent formula of lactic acid and hydrolyzed wheat protein, a natural anti-fatigue agent, actually increases skin’s "natural intelligence" so it can better manage its rsources, especially during times of stress.
The active cell protector, a compound of pineapple juice, rosemary leaf extract, and fermented protein, helps stimulate cell regeneration and inhibit stress factors. Plantago extract, organically cultivated in the Swiss Alps, stimulates collagen synthesis and contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and healing properties. Algae extract immediately tightens skin and increases the formation of collagen over the long term.
Alpha-arbutin and vitamin C work together to lighten and even skin tone. Butcher’s broom, marigold, and horse chestnut soothe inflammation. Tocotrienols and vitamin E fight free radical and ultraviolet damage. Borage seed oil, evening primrose oil and shea butter nourish and moisturize.
Chantecaille says that if you use Nano Gold Energizing Cream, your skin will function with greater efficiency, replenishing depleted resources and retaining maximum health and radiant vitality. It gets better. The botanical fragrance is heavenly. Rose soothes and uplifts, helping to promote a sense of well-being. Geranium has wonderful balancing properties, promotes healing, and stimulates the lymphatic system.
This cream feels luxurious, provides uber-moisture, and has a divine "presence" on the skin. Its fragrance, while fleeting, is an aromatherapy treat. I just love it! I haven't figured out how to add it to my already expensive daily skin-care routine, but give me time. There must be some expense I can cut!
Chantecaille products are available at the Chantecaille Web site and Neiman Marcus. Maybe you can score a sample!
