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.


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.

A COR silver soap.

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? :)
