Kiehl’s, Shu Uemura and Biotherm - L’Oreal Luxury Alternative Brands Event
Sorry I've been a bit MIA for the this week. I've just started a new job and the first few weeks have been busy (understatement)! But here's a catch up of what I was up to last week. I went to a beauty event with Handpicked Media for L’Oreal Luxury Alternative Brands - Kiehl’s, Shu Uemura and Biotherm on Thursday night. Held in the beautiful venue, Vanilla London, a beautiful vanilla coloured, scented and named bar, the 3 brands each had their own section to showcase the newest and best of their ranges.
The make up and eyelash Shu Uemura station was my first stop (what can I say, I'm a sucker for false eyelashes!) and they had a surprisingly huge selection of make up as well as false eyelashes. I loved their colourful eye palettes and party eyelashes.
Everyone was talking about the Kiehl's new Rosa Arctica face cream, which is meant to 'recharge cells and jolt skin's youth'. Derived from plant extract (the Haberlea Rhodopensis to be precise), this fresh cream smells and feels amazing.
I loved the Biotherm girls and there cool gadgets that check the hydration, elasticity and oil levels of your skin. FYI, my skin was dehydrated, normal in terms of oiliness and very high elasticity levels (I'm told this is very good!). I've never tried Biotherm before, but after trying some of their products from the goody bag, I'm hooked!
