Vichy in­tro­duces two min­eral fa­cial masks that are easy to use and add only five min­utes to the cleans­ing reg­i­men. The Dou­ble Glow Peel Mask, a gen­tle pink mask made with ground vol­canic rock and AHA fruit acids, gen­tly peels off dead cells through a dou­ble-peel ac­tion, re­sult­ing in smooth, ra­di­ant skin. The dou­ble-peel ac­tion re­fines skin tex­ture and re­veals a fresh glow and lu­mi­nous tone. While the face mask is on the skin, it chem­i­cally ex­fo­li­ates with AHAs; then the vol­canic rock pro­vides a me­chan­i­cal ex­fo­li­a­tion when you rinse it off. The sec­ond mask, the Pore Pu­ri­fy­ing Clay Mask, has two ul­tra-fine white clays, kaolin and ben­tonite, with Vichy Min­er­al­iz­ing Ther­mal Wa­ter. It helps elim­i­nate ex­cess se­bum and im­pu­ri­ties for pu­ri­fied pores and softer skin. Both wash off eas­ily, leav­ing the skin re­freshed and ready for mois­tur­iz­ing.

NIS 119. Avail­able at private phar­ma­cies.


Osem has launched a line of new sea­son­ing soup mixes, such as len­til, pi­quant legumes and root veg­eta­bles. The mixes can be used to fla­vor soups and stews, mak­ing the prepa­ra­tion much faster and eas­ier. The new fla­vors have been added to Osem’s Nat­u­ral In­gre­di­ents line. In ad­di­tion, Osem is join­ing the health­ful trend with a variation on two of its flag­ship prod­ucts: chicken soup and chicken fla­vored soup with 33% less sodium. The com­pany says that after a year-long en­deavor of re­search and de­vel­op­ment, it has suc­ceeded in pro­duc­ing the re­duced-sodium soup mixes with­out com­pro­mis­ing the fla­vor.


If you have a Ne­spresso cof­fee ma­chine, you may vary your reg­u­lar fla­vors with the new lim­ited-edi­tion win­ter hol­i­day col­lec­tion in­spired by what the com­pany calls “child­hood sweet.” The new fla­vors in­clude co­conut-vanilla, choco­late-coated orange peel, and licorice. In­ter­na­tional de­signer duo Craig and Karl de­signed the cap­sules and pack­ag­ing, adding a hu­mor­ous touch to the oth­er­wise el­e­gant Ne­spresso line. All the new cof­fee blends are made from 100% Ara­bica beans, have caramelize­d notes and round body.

NIS 25.50 for a sleeve con­tain­ing 10 cap­sules. Also from Ne­spresso – espresso cups de­signed by Craig and Karl, as well as ther­mal cups. Avail­able at­ or call *2500.


As De­cem­ber ap­proaches, so does the an­nual gift-shop­ping de­bate – what to buy for friends, col­leagues or fam­ily abroad for Hanukka and the New Year. My choice (one I sus­pect my friends abroad have come to rely on) are the gift pack­ages of Ben-Ezer Plan­ta­tions. The gift boxes are com­prised of pre­mium prod­ucts made in Is­rael, such as cit­rus fruit – red grape­fruit and or­anges grown on the Ben-Ezer plan­ta­tions – gourmet choco­lates, wine and olive oil. This year, Ben-Ezer has added Cas­tel pre­mium wines, qual­ity choco­late pra­lines and a se­lec­tion of dried fruit, nuts and al­monds. Choose from a va­ri­ety of 50 boxes.

NIS 329 and up, in­clud­ing de­liv­ery.


“Ev­ery­one glows at the magic hour of sun­set,” says Lori Tay­lor Davies, Smash­box makeup artist. “That is why we cre­ated this primer – to recre­ate the mag­i­cal hour 24/7. The primer is en­riched with ad­vanced hy­dra­tion for healthy skin and per­fect makeup ap­pli­ca­tion.”

I love Smash­box makeup so­lu­tions. The com­pany al­ways man­ages to find new ideas to help ren­der bet­ter re­sults eas­ily. This time, they re­ally out­did them­selves. The new Smash­box Photo Fin­ish Foun­da­tion Primer Ra­di­ance is a mois­tur­iz­ing primer cream that can be ap­plied be­fore foun­da­tion, giv­ing the skin a healthy glow. The primer has a satin-smooth for­mula that in­stantly il­lu­mi­nates, per­fects and en­hances ra­di­ance while hy­drat­ing the skin for bet­ter makeup ap­pli­ca­tion. I tried it and got so many “You look great” com­pli­ments that I had to be­lieve it. Ap­ply a thin layer on the face be­fore makeup or use as a high­lighter over makeup.

The new In­fal­li­ble To­tal Cover Foun­da­tion by L’Oréal Paris pro­vides up to 24-hour to­tal cover. Yet when it is ap­plied, it feels weight­less and ren­ders a nat­u­ral-look­ing fin­ish. The foun­da­tion quickly cov­ers dark spots, blem­ishes, scars, and hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion for a flaw­less-look­ing com­plex­ion. The full cov­er­age foun­da­tion is for­mu­lated with high load pig­ments and is en­riched with Al­liagel.

For even bet­ter re­sults, L’Oréal Paris sug­gests us­ing its new con­cealer pal­ette under the foun­da­tion. Pro­fes­sional makeup artists use dif­fer­ent col­ored con­ceal­ers to achieve a more even, per­fect-look­ing skin, and now you can too. The mul­ti­col­ored con­ceal­ers help hide dark under-eye cir­cles (use one of the orange con­ceal­ers); con­ceal red spots (use the green con­cealer); or il­lu­mi­nate ar­eas (use the light blue-pur­ple shade).

Spe­cial in­tro­duc­tory prices un­til the end of Novem­ber: NIS 80 for the foun­da­tion; NIS 65 for the con­cealer pal­ette.


The skin around the eyes is among the thinnest and most del­i­cate on the body. Thus it one of the first ar­eas to show signs of stress. Stress Pos­i­tive Eye Lift by Der­ma­log­ica cre­ates a lift­ing ef­fect, as well as tight­en­ing and light­en­ing the eye area. The cool­ing cream-gel mask re­vi­tal­izes the skin while re­duc­ing vis­i­ble signs of stress, thanks to a high-per­for­mance for­mula which the com­pany says min­i­mizes puffi­ness and dark cir­cles, in­creases skin lu­mi­nos­ity, lifts the eye area and helps re­store skin bar­rier in­tegrity. The mask in­gre­di­ents in­clude wild indigo seeds to brighten and help re­duce under-eye cir­cles; sea­wa­ter ex­tract and Arc­tic al­gae to counter puffi­ness; and fer­mented yeast and hyaluronic acid to firm skin and help gen­er­ate a lift­ing ef­fect. For­mu­lated with­out ar­ti­fi­cial col­ors or fra­grances, it re­ally works, says our tester.

NIS 410. Avail­able around the coun­try at Der­ma­log­ica points of sale, where beau­ti­cians also demon­strate how to use the prod­uct. Call 073-210-2030 or go to www.der­ma­log­


For the first time in Is­rael, the David Citadel Ho­tel is pro­vid­ing the Bul­gari line of ameni­ties for its guests. I know that most peo­ple don’t choose a ho­tel based solely on the ameni­ties pro­vided in the rooms, but when it comes to Bul­gari, that may ac­tu­ally tip the scales. Es­tab­lished in Italy in the 19th cen­tury, Bul­gari, known for its ex­clu­sive jewelry, has ex­panded in re­cent years into the lux­u­ri­ous world of scents, soaps and body lotions. The Bul­gari ameni­ties at the David Citadel, which in­clude soaps, scent and more, are avail­able for the ho­tel’s guests in the rooms and pub­lic ar­eas as part of the man­age­ment’s desire to en­velop their clien­tele with pres­tige and ex­clu­siv­ity through­out their stay.


Lo­cal makeup guru Adah La­zor­gan has launched a new com­pact pal­ette for eye­brows, as well as eye shad­ows that can be used wet or dry. The com­pact pal­ette comes with a small an­gled brush and is ideal for those with only three min­utes to spare on eye­brows and eye liner in the morn­ing. Keep the kit in your purse for touch-ups or if you’re go­ing out right after work. Us­ing the wet brush, out­line the eye­brows and eye­lash line. Let dry. Then use a dry brush to blur the edges for a nat­u­ral-look­ing fin­ish.

NIS 277 for the pal­ette and the No. 9 brush. www.adahla­zor­


Clin­ique’s BIY (Blend It Your­self) Pig­ment Drops is just the an­swer for those who are tired of hav­ing too many prod­ucts in their makeup drawer. Sav­ing time and space, BIY turns ev­ery mois­tur­izer into a BB (beauty balm), CC (color cor­rect­ing) or even a full-cover foun­da­tion. One drop of Clin­ique BIY Pig­ment Drops cre­ates sheer cover, while adding two or three drops ren­ders a flaw­less fin­ish. Since Clin­ique BIY takes on the fin­ish of the mois­tur­izer you blend it with, us­ing an anti-shine mois­tur­izer will re­sult in a more matte fin­ish, while us­ing mois­tur­izer that con­tains op­tics will re­sult in a ra­di­ant fin­ish. The pure pig­ments float in a clear for­mula that comes in two stages. Choose your shade, mix the pig­ment in the for­mula and shake. Then use with mois­tur­izer when­ever needed.

NIS 129.


My short week­end trips have be­come more fun than ever with my new Man­da­rina Duck Pop­si­cle carry-on trol­ley, which is both fun and prac­ti­cal. The trol­leys, made by the high-end Ital­ian fash­ion brand Man­da­rina Duck, have a poly­car­bon­ate hard shell that is trans­par­ent, re­veal­ing the color of the mod­ule in­side, which is used to or­ga­nize your items. (If you don’t use a mod­ule, the clear trol­ley will show ev­ery­thing that is packed in­side). The stor­age mod­ules are eas­ily re­moved from the trol­ley and can be trans­ferred to a closet or drawer when you ar­rive at your des­ti­na­tion. The mod­ules are pur­chased sep­a­rately, to match your needs and for added fun. The trol­leys are light­weight, have four wheels for easy ma­neu­ver­ing, a TSA lock and high-qual­ity zip­pers.

NIS 770 for a cabin trol­ley; NIS 899 for a medium-size trol­ley. The in­ter­nal mod­ules are NIS 150 for the cabin trol­ley and NIS 180 for the medium trol­ley. Avail­able in Is­rael at Top Tik stores and on­line at­
