Amarte, Amore!


There are very few moments in this lifetime when any girl – no matter what your age – gets to feel like a princess. Two weeks ago I got that very chance at a fundraiser ball with my beau – and I cannot believe the magic ingredient that I had to pull myself together.

Rob and I were headed to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to a fundraiser for his job, for Mass General Hospital. I had been feeling, you know, a little wrinkly, and recently had come across Amarte Wonder Cream – a handy little pink bottle that is at once your bodyguard and your fairy godmother!

Amarte uses ActivElements® to defend your skin and lighten freckles and sunspots while the therapeutic properties of this rich cream lovingly exfoliate for a supple, translucent complexion. All the nutrient-packed protection you need to be the belle of the ball!  After just two weeks of using Amarte, I honestly can’t believe it, but I felt like the belle of the ball indeed. At one point in the evening, by honey turned to me and said – you are the most beautiful woman in this room. So….i guess, maybe it was the Amarte…maybe it was too many cocktails….perhaps it was the magical night. But at 51, I will take it all, and then some…

Amarte is wonderfully effective at brightening your skin color, fading away those dark spots, and moisturizing your skin. Unlike many products that you can feel sitting on your skin, Amarte seeps right in and gets to work right away.

Ingredients include water, sorbitan stearate, Schizophyllan (mushroom β-glucan), natural betaine, cyclomethicone, propolis cera, elemental sulfur, Argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil, pearl powder, Saccharomyces/selenium ferment (biopeptide SC), mastic oil, tocopheryl acetate, retinol 1.0%, Myristica fragrans (nutmeg) kernel extract, Syzygium aromaticum (clove) seed extract, Eucalyptus alba leaf extract, Citrus paradisi (grapefruit) seed extract, caviar extract, allantoin, acacia collagen, sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, carbomer, stearyl glycyrrhetinate, butylene glycol, phenoxyethanol.

Not only does Amarte make you feel like a princess, but you will look like one too!
