Armani Crema Nera OMC3 Giveaway Contest

Giorgio Armani Beauty's new Crema Nera OMC3 (that's cubed, but I have no idea how to do superscripts in Blogger) is in stores now. The new Crema Nera has an SPF of 15 (protecting against both UVA and UVB rays), so it's basically a day cream - lightweight in feel, but with heavy-duty effectiveness. It's priced at $185. Best Things in Beauty has one OMC3 to give away, courtesy of the generous Armani Beauty team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

The targeted anti-aging OMC3 treatment is designed to restructure, replenish, and re-plump the skin for women (and men) concerned with wrinkles, firmness, and sagging. Its active ingredients are the OMC3 complex, a combination of perlite solute, iron, and silicium - the latter two being anti-aging, cell-regenerating minerals; pro-xylane, which stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans, important to the function of connective tissue; and hyaluronic acid (a must-use topical hydrator). I won't bore you with the biology lesson. This is "good stuff" for the skin!

Crema Nera OMC3 is said to add density, firmness, and structure to the skin by working at three levels: the epidermis, dermo-epidermal junction, and the dermis. Basically, the three essential ingredients in OMC3 are believed to repair the skin by acting on different types of collagen, increasing collagen production. The results? In a four-week test, 81% of the participants experienced increased firmness, 73% experienced a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (imagine pushing them out from the inside), and 73% had improved density.

How can you win this incredible cream? Just e-mail and tell us what your favorite Best Things in Beauty Armani blog post has been. There are a bunch of them because I love my Armani cosmetics and skin care (just use the "Search This Blog" feature to the right to find all the "Armani" posts). A little creativity in your e-mail won't hurt.

The contest deadline is 5:00 pm Eastern time Tuesday, October, 13. United States residents only, please. A small team of judges will select the winner. I am posting this contest on Free!Grechen, my favorite site for giveaways. Good Luck!

My thanks, once again, to the uber-generous Armani Beauty team at Saks!
