Leave it to the Italians to combine their love of food with their love of skincare.

Beauty Made in Italy is a new program launched by the Italian government to promote the awareness, availability and excellence of Italian beauty products and brands. Recently, WAG was introduced to three:

Perlier focuses on radiant skin with its Golden Almond Nourishing Body Balm, which uses the Avola almond to help the skin retain its elasticity and vitality. Retail price: $60. Available at and

Truffle Therapy Serum from Skin & Co Roma is made from truffles and handcrafted in Umbria to restore the skin’s radiance, reduce fine lines and reveal firmer and brighter skin. Retail price: $70. Available at and
