Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale

The cold winter weather kicked in here today, although it won't last, in 2 days it'll be 50 degrees again. Either way, this time of year calls for a more emollient moisturizer.

I got a nice large GWP sample of Guerlain Imperial Orchidee awhile back and broke it out a week ago. I knew it would be lovely, and it is. It's creamy, soft, smooth and rich but sinks right in and leaves no greasiness. I only need a little so my small jar will go a long way, thankfully. Retail is 350.00, so I won't be restocking.

The Orchidee feels so nice, and isn't heavy. I can't say I've seen huge differences in my skin, as not only is it used in a small area, but also not long enough. Basically it softens, smoothes a little and brightens a little. All in a most luxurious way of course.

Guerlain skincare is available at bergdorf goodman, neiman marcus both in store and online.

Here's the store site info :
