Winning Silver

A lot people call me lucky.

I'd just say I'm a shamelessly vigilant opportunist.

Like when Ana Pettus posted a giveaway last year
for goods over $1000 of swanky beauty goods,
I stalked it was a matter of national security.

And I won.

So am I lucky?

Or do I just have too much time on my hands?

Probably a little bit of both.

Amidst the box full of Chanel nail polish & lipsticks,
at home micro-dermabrasion & cellulite therapy kits,
there was this.

Now in my past life in Dallas,
I worked with a store who sold COR.

Our buyer gave me a sample of it at the trade show in New York
the day he initially stumbled upon their booth.

I think I threw it away in my hotel room later that night
because I didn't really want to bother with a little soap sample.

The store brought in a shipment
and I started seeing celebrity reviews on this little orb of love
that is made of actual silver
which delivers fantastic anti-bacterial elements
to help clear your complexion and fight anti-aging.

So when I found this giant-sized version in the box from Ana
I knew it was something special...
I mean, it costs £100.

At that price, you'd expect it to be made of gold... or silver.

I was unpacking some boxes last night and found it once again.
Never used, still in the original box.

I decided it was time to try it out
this little La Mer of facial soaps.

And I actually do LOVE it. 
My skin feels great 
and felt really tight afterwards.
Gotta reduce those pore sizes, baby!

So one day in-
I think it's a winner,
but time will tell.

In the meantime,
I'll just have to take Sarah Jessica Parker & Jessica Biel's endorsed word on it.

Have you ever tried COR?
Or have you ever heard of soap this expensive? :)
