Last night I had the delight of going to Radiance Beauty & Day Spa launch of their own skincare range, what a great start to the weekend, cocktails and canapés. This was my first blogger event. I was excited in the build up that week, well it was on Friday so I was getting ready for the weekend. As Friday approached, I had a presentation at work (stressed much?!?) and then once that was over I was heading straight there. I began more nervous as I got closer. I sat in my car putting on a little bit more make up and became paranoid about what I was wearing. Oh word, anxiety up to an 8/10. Luckily I had spoke with Leigh earlier in the week and I found out that she was going, perfect time for a catch up. But why was I so nervous, I’ve been put in these situations before and I can talk to just about anyone, shake out of it.
We all know the Lisburn Road isn’t the best place for parking so I parked up the street and walked down towards the event. I could see a marquee in front of the shop, the event looked fabulous. As I walked in, I was greeting with a delicious chocolate martini, great start. I then spoke to Christine the owner and WOW! Christine was in the most gorgeous gold sequins full length gown, so look fabulous and was so welcoming, what was I worried about. I then seen her gorgeous daughter in a similar gold sequins outfit, anything gold and I’m yours. Christine told me about some of the informative talks that were happing inside so I went in to see their new range of skincare and find out a bit more about it.
Two if the new products stood out to me. Firstly, hydrate is an ultra nourishing serum and is perfect for dehydrated and ageing concerns, this contains hyalauronic acid which will attract moisture and bind it to the skin leaving it soft, supple, nourished and glowing. Because I have such dry skin, this blend is perfect for me, I drink so much water in the day but never seem to be able to get the moisture into my skin. This contains a cocktail of anti-ageing ingredients to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and prevent future signs of ageing, definitely something I’m worried about as I begin to make my way to my thirties.
Then there is recover, a night cream that provides some much needed extra care for skin to help it repair and renew from the stresses of the day whilst you sleep, all that work while I’m catching up on my beauty sleep. Our signature night cream has been specifically developed to rejuvenate through its antioxidant activity. Rehydrating skin to allow over night recovery and reveal a softer more youthful appearance for the new day ahead.
We got the most gorgeous gift bags with some samples, the bag alone sold me, gold foil printing is divine. I was delighted to meet Steph as well as some other amazing bloggers around Belfast, it’s strange because we all know each other but most of these girls, I had never met before, its fantastic how we can all be brought together. I also got to catch up with my school friend, Ashlee from Oh So Femme, but we won’t think about how long it’s been since we were in school together.
Thanks Radiance Belfast for the invite, I was delighted to attend and can’t wait to try some of the products. I had a ball, the cocktails we delicious, canapés were to die for, not to mention the fire dancers, talk about impressive.
