When Clarins showed me the most amazing itinerary featuring new products, my favourite venues and my favourite blogger ladies, I could hardly resist. In celebration of their new Multi-Active range, Clarins invited a handful of us to spend 30 hours in London with them, trial the products, learn about them and relax at some of the top spots in London. Let's discuss a pretty epic few days...
We checked into our hotel rooms and I was blown away (not just by the amazing bag full of Clarins travels essentials). If you read EmTalks a lot, you'll know that I'm a sucker for a nice hotel. I really enjoy hotel life and travelling, it's my favourite hobby (read my travel section here). The Mondrian London blew me away (I will live in a room like this one day), unfortunately I didn't have the time to give it a full blown review (you'll have to wait to for my vlog to see some more footage of my stunning room) so I'll certainly be back to try it out again and next time, I'll have someone to share this huge suite with! My room was huge, beautiful and just so relaxing but no rest for the wicked, as soon as I'd dropped my bags, I headed straight to Victoria's room to catch up. I got the chance to spend a good few hours catching up with my beloved Ibiza girls before we headed out for dinner. We giggled and caught up over a lotta popcorn and I've honestly never been happier.
We finally got the chance to see a life-sized multi-active day cream and learn all about this new product. It does what it says on the tin, basically a day cream to fight against stress, tiredness, dull-skin, you name it.
We also got the chance to make beautiful floral crowns, bouquets of flowers and more to take home with us. Flowers are seriously the way to my heart.
We sat down for dinner and demolished our starters and mains before any photos could be taken. Salmon and noodles were on the menu. Far too divine to share or let any go to waste in true Sketch style.
After a few too many glasses of champagne and far too many giggles, we retreated back to our beautiful rooms for some much needed shut eye. We were hand delivered a beautiful tray with Clarins new multi-active night cream on it right before bed, ready to slather all over our faces before we slept. I felt instantly hydrated and my skin was seriously thanking me for it after all that champagne!
I popped down my new Longchamp bag (it made it's first appearance on my new outfit post the other day hooray!) so as you've probably seen by now, the new launches are a day and a night cream and we were able to trial them both in our hotel rooms.A 6am start was certainly made easier by this hand delivered tray ft. Claris multi-active day cream and a beautiful rose. Our next stop was the Shard, for yoga sessions in the sky. Unfortunately I couldn't take many photos as it was pretty cloudy 60 floors up.
After an hour of yoga, I felt energised, refreshed and ready to tackle to day ahead.
We talked all things skincare with Clarins experts over breakfast nibbles, lattes and croissants. After, we headed back to our rooms to indulge in the most amazing room service you've ever seen.
Our final stop of the day was for brunch at Bourne and Hollingsworth, one of the most beautiful, fresh venues ever. We were treated to fresh juices, yummy nibbles and a preview of Clarins new Spring launches.
It's safe to say, the new Clarins launches are going to blow you away. Much like these flowers, they're fresh, natural and beautiful. Plus, they've well and truly got me in the mood for Spring.
I finally got the chance to take my new Ralph Lauren trench for a spin too over brunch! I had the most amazing few days with Clarins, amazing company, amazing products, learning about my favourite thing; beauty and, getting the chance to catch up with my favourite girls over cocktails and incredible food. Oh, not forgetting staying in the most beautiful suite and doing yoga with panoramic views of London. Words just cannot describe how amazing these few days were. A huge thanks to Clarins for having me, I'm looking forward to keeping you all up to date with the new multi-active range, sharing how I get on and showing you some of their new products in the run up to Spring! Do keep an eye out!
Do you like Clarins products? Have you ever visited any of the places above? Do you like the sound of the multi-active products? Are you excited for Spring products?
Lots of love, Em x
