I’m so excited to share Marisa Berenson’s beauty products with you. Not only do Marisa and I have a friend in common but we share the same birthday and are creative souls. Now really, what more do you need to become pals?
I spoke with Marisa a few years ago (read about it here) and she talked about Prickly Pear seed oil and creating her skincare which was not yet available here.
A desert cactus plant, Prickly Pear thrives in some of the driest of climates. Rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, Omegas 3 and 6, this unique botanical compound protects against environmental damage, nourishes, and helps firm and tone dull, lackluster skin. Present in every Sublime Care formula, this plant oil enhances each step of the ritual from cleansing through treatment to hydration. (source)
Well, good news! Her products are now available. Marisa’s skincare does not contain preservatives or synthetic coloring, parabens, PEGs, GMOs. They are made with many organic ingredients and essential oils.
Marisa is an icon from her early days as a model to her acting and now, a role model on how to age gracefully (and beautifully). Naturally I was eager experience her skincare line. Everything is packaged in glamorous gold bottles and jars and look so pretty and chic.
Let’s check out what I tried:
The Fabulous Oil utilizes the potency of Prickly Pear which contains antioxidants, vitamins, omega-3 and 6 plus it aids in skin regeneration and helps calm skin.
I am obsessed with this oil thanks to its lovely gentle scent and the fact it sinks into skin quickly.
My skin is dewy and glowing after I apply it. I try to use it sparingly but want to keep reapplying it, I just love it.
“I have lived my entire life in a holistic and natural way. Over the years, I have searched for the best natural ingredients to keep my skin healthy and beautiful. One day I discovered the incredible virtues of prickly-pear oil. It comes from the tiny pips of the fruit of a cactus plant that grows in the desert, regenerating itself perpetually. I worked with my holistic doctor to create the Fabulous Oil, a true elixir of life. We have also figured out the optimal way to apply the products onto the skin, and I have developed my own methodology. Place a few drops onto fingertips, lightly rub together and gently press into skin until absorbed.” -Marisa Berenson, in an interview with W.
The Intense Day cream is pure luxury. It’s rich and creamy and exactly what you want to feed your face for the ultimate in nourishment each day.
I particularly like using this after a face mask, then a warm cloth to the face and an application of this day cream which contains the prickly pear seed oil.
In addition, it is made with organic vitamin C and organic sesame oil. Skin is very hydrated and feels extremely soft but not greasy.
I loved what I tried and there are more items available in Marisa’s line including a scrub, mask, eye treatment, and more.
