I was never a fan of gift sets…until brands started getting glamourous. There were some functional and nicely presented ones for holiday ’11, and this resort season, Fresh, the brand I’ve grown to adore for its simplicity (and price points) has joined forces with French house of bubbly Veuve Cliquot to offer the essential après ski set. Or New York Fashion Week set. Or whenever. It’s so compact, travel-friendly and packed with the line’s essentials, it can tastefully be used on and off the slopes.
Word is that this kit was in circulation during this year’s Sundance Film Festival, with it’s softly scented Lip Treatment and Brown Sugar Lip Creme being to go-to products for many surviving the weather during the annual film event. It’s also grown on me, mainly for its size and longevity. Fresh products tend to go a long way, and this one thankfully comes ready to pack in any travel bag, too. Vanessa Kay, President of Veuve Cliquot USA, sums it all up perfectly: “The Fresh for Clicquot in the Snow Beauty Survival Kit brings a new touch of pampering to Clicquot in the Snow. Both brands embody sophisticated and active lifestyles. The kit offers everything you need to refresh and rejuvenate before enjoying a flute of Veuve Clicquot at après ski as well as in the city this winter.”
Having gone from one resort to another and now back in the city, it’s time for a trip to the recently renovated Fresh boutique in lower Manhattan to stock up! The Cliquot In The Snow essential beauty kit is online and also in-store. Be sure to visit the newly renovated Fresh boutique in Union Square. There is a bit of history there, more on this soon!
