Skin Care

What’s black and white and only in New York?

Armani’s Crema Nera facial cream, that’s what. And nooo….it’s not black cream!

Like the master himself, Crema Nera is sophisticated, elegant and smart, and proudly struts its “one product only” stand alone quality. This ultra rich cream is designed for every age and every skin type, and reflects Armani’s commitment to high quality and simplicity. This one-size-fits-all, face cream keeps your regimen simple.

I opened the sculptural, sexy black jar to find a pure white dense cream which has absolutely no scent (love that!) It immediately melted between my fingertips and very little was needed to cover my entire face. And oh……by the by my fellow skin care sleuths, its texture and simplicity reminds me a little of that “other” miracle cream, you know, the one from la sea (wink, wink). But hey, that’s not a bad thing!

Crema Nera’s main ingredient is the patented Obsidian Mineral Complex inspired by the rocky Pantelleria volcanic island off of Sicily where Armani has a home. The beautiful, black obsidian is much higher in mineral content than others which is the key to why this simple but complex cream works to stimulate cellular metabolism in the skin. Clinical trials over a 4 week period showed increased skin elasticity, firmness, hydration, radiance and a decrease of fine lines. I just know that it made my skin look great and feel as soft as an Armani satin blouse.

Oh, us lucky New Yorkers, we get it all and we get it first! Available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Avenue, 212.940.4800.
