I don’t know any girl who’s not a fan of Dermalogica. It seems to be the Beyonce of skincare, so naturally I was pretty excited to hear about their new range of primers, and even more so to attend their primer launch party!
It took me ages to find a primer that didn’t cause my skin to feel oily, even the oil free ones have a habit of making my face feel like a well greased pan. Knowing Dermalogica’s reputation with skin care however, I was super excited to get my hands on them.
Walking through the floral archway, we were greeted to the beautiful white open space that is level 7 David Jones Elizabeth Street. Decorated with an array of fresh white flowers, you had the opportunity to sample the new primers, get your face mapped at one of the face mapping stations, enjoy a glass of free champagne or other drinks – refills included, and canapés. And my goodness, these canapés were delicious.
To start the night, we received Dermalogica’s unique Face Mapping Skin Analysis, along with a personalised regime from a Skin Health Expert. Face Mapping involves dividing the facial landscape into fourteen zones where each zone is examined through touch and sight. Observations are recorded on a prescription sheet that help identify the areas on your skin where congestion, breakouts, dehydration, and/or hyperpigmentation are present. As a final step, the Skin Health Expert helps match the correct Dermalogica products to your skin type.
Next on the agenda, Dermalogica made discovering the secret to creating the perfect make up base way too easy with their on stage ‘how-to’ led by Australia’s leading make-up artist Max May. Bloggers ‘A Pair and a Spare’ and Natalie Cantell also shared their advice.
To top the night off guests had the chance to win a years supply of Dermalogica products by entering an Instagram competition….and here was our entry:
And…*drumroll* we won!!
With the products I receive from this competition, I intend to honestly document how they benefit and improve my skin over time.
Can’t wait to share my Skin Story with you!
Thanks Dermalogica for the fantastic evening!
