“From a very personal  experience, my life  mantra is my “me  time” after a long week of hard work  and constant traveling  between eurostars and airplanes. It is essential  to my every day  “balance” and also contributes to a beauty regime.”  -TERRY de GUNZBURG




“What makes BY TERRY products so unique is their  high quality, ultra-concentrated formulas, intensive  treatment and glowing benefits. They are made with  the purest pigments and the most exclusive active  ingredients. The textures are highly sophisticated and  very easy to blend to reveal absolute enlightening  and perfection.

“During summer, I go to my house in Saint Remy de Provence! I love the scent of Fig Trees in the  garden, when I see those trees blooming, I  immediately feel on holiday…  For Christmas it would have to be in the  mountains in Switzerland when we are sure that  there will be snow!  We have been renting a  splendid chalet in Verbier for many years so we  always feel so at home there. My husband and  I sail with our family in the Mediterranean Sea in summer as well. It is gorgeous and so peaceful!”


“I also love to go to the Nuxe Spa rue Montorgueil in Paris or the Mandarin Oriental Spa in London.” 


“I love true stories  about powerful  women and this  summer I think I am gonna love the biography of  Eleanor  Roosevelt.”    

Eleanor Roosevelt: First Lady Et Rebelle by Claude-Catherine Kiejman

“whether it is relaxing at home with my family, walking from  gallery to museum, reading a book or listening to opera, I make  sure to make some space for my family and my pleasures.”
