One of our precious readers, Wendy, wrote in to me last week to ask me about the extra plastic lid that comes in all of the jars of beauty creams she is addicted to purchasing.  She wants to know why it is there, what it is for and if she should keep it on there!  To be honest, I had the same questions so I turned to my friends at BVLGARI who have developed the most amazing skin care line using their BVLGARI Gem Essence complex which uses fine and precious stones to help the skin resist external stresses.  It is  like putting all of the positive energies of gemstones on to your skin!  Can you think of anything more luxurious?  Here is what they had to say about the plastic lids in their products:

  “The plastic disks are on the jars of our skincare products to prevent contamination. Once the jar is opened, since it is not a pump, the plastic disk provides an element of protection.”

Sounds like a good answer to me!  I like anything that prevents contamination!  I like to keep my lids with my products because it makes me feel like there is a little bit of extra protection.  I hope that answers you question Wendy!
In addition to their helpful insight, our generous friends at BVLGARI have also put a special skin care treat aside in their Dallas boutique for one lucky reader!

Our winner will be announced here on Friday!   I have been using these products myself and I can’t resist telling you how amazing they are.  There is something so special about opening the amazing BVLGARI jars with lids modeled after their signature jewelery pieces and then the fragrance of the products takes over and makes you fell like you are getting an incredible facial in a luxurious spa.  The best part, though, is the way your skin glows after you use the products.  Trust me, this is one big prize you don’t want to miss! Good Luck!

    Wow, and I had just been thinking why and if, I should leave the inside plastic lid on the jar of cream I treated myself to at the local store. And here was the answer – thanks for the tip!!! Luckily I had been lazy enough to leave it on and then I got to thinking BIG !!! If I enter and have a chance to win, then perhaps I will have another jar of special "jem" cream to enjoy and keep the lid on with. And look special for my boys.

    To be honest, I have never tried a Bulgari beauty product and I am currently trying to find a new skin care line to start using…I'm blaming using the same thing for years for why my skin is looking tired 😛 Based on my knowledge of the other Bulgari products quality, I can only imagine their skin care is top of the line. I would love to try it!

    I have been using Bulgari Au The Vert for several years. I LOVE the smell. I also always, always use the body lotion when I wear short skirts. It makes my legs SHINE.
