The royal Egyptian ruling class – legendary beauties like Nefertiti and Cleopatra – were world-renowned for beautiful, soft skin. Now we know why.

Allu has got to be one of our favorite new beauty product discoveries this fall.  Though we love the “mystical legend” surrounding it, and “unlocking the secret of eternal beauty,” what really brings it down to earth are the natural elements that form the foundation of the secret: intoxicatingly scented neroli, antioxidant rich green tea and grape seed, rejuvenating bitter almond and hydrating white lotus.  The luxurious cream is rich and fragrant and immediately conjures the indulgences of the ancient Nile.  It is such a treat for your skin, you will immediately feel uplifted and nourished.  Even the packaging (a pyramid-shaped jar) evokes its origins in the ancient Egyptian principles of beauty.  We highly recommend this fabulous product.

They certainly claim to work miracles on their website, and though we haven’t had a chance to give it a full trial, we already head over heels for the stuff.  Best of all, right now you can have the chance to win some Allu Ultimate Skin Therapy Cream!
