City Pulse

It’s hard waking up in the morning and when it gets colder, it’s that much harder to crawl out of that nice warm bed, right? I found something that does make the morning a bit easier to take and I wanted to pass it on to you.

G.M. Collin Skincare was created in France in 1957 by Dr, Eugenia Lapinet, a dermatologist and Monique Moreau, a very famous aesthetician. The line specializes in dermo-corrective formulas. This means that G.M. Collin Skincare line was created to replenish and nourish the skin. The line has great products to help retard aging and make blemishes run away.

They’ve just came out with Nutriance. It’s an all over body moisturizer that replicates the skin’s natural hydration mechanisms by using lamellar liquid crystals. It’s perfect for protecting and nourishing your skin in the winter. You can use it day or night. Best of all it has a very light citrus scent that wakes you up when you’re groggy in the AM.

Hugh Dancy, the face of Burberry Brit for Men will be at Bloomies this Thursday, November 18th, 12:30 PM- 2:30 PM. Please use the 59th Street and 3rd Avenue entrance. Inspired by a young Mick Jagger, Burberry Brit for Men epitomizes the modern British male. The scent is a fresh oriental woody fragrance.

Hugh is the Oxford educated actor who has appeared in Black Hawk Down, Ella Enchanted and King Arthur. He’ll be signing bottles and photos and you can enter to bid on a custom-made Burberry “Art of the Trench” trench coat.

Now, I haven’t shopped here myself, but I’ve heard great things about the Find Outlet, 361 W 17thSt, between 8th & 9th Avenue, 212-243-3177. There’s everything from up and coming designers to merchandise you see at Barneys, Bendel’s and other sophisticated stores. I’ve heard they also have $5 – $20 bargain bins inside. This might be one of those shops where you take a friend and divide the store in half – shop for each other while you comb through the racks.
