Those precious early morning hours... when the warm sunshine is just starting to drape into the room, the birds are enjoying their wonderful freedom before heading off for Autumn, and before the day begins, before the telephone rings, and before the computer is turned on, begin with Belmondo—a lovely morning (as well as evening) skincare ritual. Belmondo literally means "beautiful world" in Italian, and is also the last name of owner Daniela Belmondo. Daniela understands that a woman's complexion is key, and therefore, uses only the very best—100% natural, derived from the earth’s pure and restorative ingredients.
Belmondo organic skin care is designed around the daily rituals of caring for yourself. Hand-crafted and formulated in small batches locally, Belmondo products are carefully formulated with the desire to share the incredible natural properties of olive oil, sourced from Italy.
"The Rain", balancing with "After The Rain" and finishing by moisturizing with "The Cloud"... Daniela has also developed additional products to use weekly, including a facial exfoliant, body butter, nourishing facial oil, and more. For me, after personally trying everything from Lancôme to Clarins, I've never enjoyed pampering myself more, and my skin has never looked more healthy than after I've started using these organic products...
David Arias, the labels offer such a unique and bold look, with a custom hand-rendered typeface, giving the labels the same hand-crafted touch as the products within. And some wonderful news for this local lady—Belmondo has recently been featured in two well-respected, major design magazines: Monocle and Wallpaper*! With an ever-growing international shopping base and quite a local following in the way of spas and shops, businesses abroad also have their eye on Belmondo, and I am so excited to see what's in store for this amazing line...
And for the news: I am thrilled to announce that Belmondo is giving away a $100 gift card to shop online at Belmondo however you wish!
