On August 18th I was invited to an “Up Close and Personal” event at the Dermalogica TorontoTraining Centre. At this event there were 4 rooms set up which guest were given a chance to visit. The first room I went to was an update on the FITE initiative which I was introduced to during my last visit to Dermalogica. To date, 4,417 loans have been given out. Each guest had the opportunity to donate $25 dollars courtesy of Dermalogica to the Entrepreneur of their choice.
The next room I visited was the make up room where Diana Carreiro – international beauty expert – was there sharing her tips and tricks for acheiving her top 5 beauty looks for Fall/Winter.
Diana teaching us the Metallics trend – this time on the eyes on the beautiful Davida a makeup artist and fellow Toronto Beauty Blogger
The final look – sorry it’s not a close up, but her eyes really did look outstanding!
I volunteered to go next and try out the colourful eyes trend. I told Diana to do whatever she wanted to do – so she decided hot pink was the way to go!
Amazing!! Sooo wish I could pull this off!
Next I went to visit the new treatment room! How exciting that Dermalogica will begin offering skin treatments (I don’t think this is available to the public, I’ll find out and update!)

And the last part of the night was the introduction of Dermalogica’s Newest Age Smart Product: Overnight Repair Serum (available October 2011)
This treatment is for mature skin designed to firm the skin and restore its ability to maintain supplements and moisture.
The Overnight Repair Serum is applied at night to freshly cleansed skin. Four to six drops are recommended and can be applied directly to skin or mixed with a Dermalogica nighttime use moisturizer.
I thought this slide was an interesting way to apply the serum while incorporating some at home accupressure:
The idea is to apply the serum to the face and concentrate on the points of the face listed in the diagram above while deeply breathing in and out to calm and relax both the body and mind – a sure fire way to get a good night’s sleep!
The serum will retail for $88 for 15 mL and comes in a glass bottle to help preserve the active ingredients.
And since I was at an event filled with other bloggers who don’t find it weird to take pictures of yourself, I took advantage and asked Arianne to snap a couple of outfit photos for me:
Skirt: Ann Taylor Factory Lace Crochet Skirt 0P (see previous post on this skirt here)
Shirt: Vero Moda XS
Shoes: Nine West size 7
Jewellery and watch: Avon
So there you have it! A really great night at Dermalogica as always! Special thanks to Patricia of Faulhaber PR for the invite (and I’m glad to have finally met you!) and it was nice seeing Emily and Charmaine of Dermalogica again :).
And of course it’s always fun running into fellow bloggers such as Arianne (The Glitter Geek), Davida and Meredith (Et Tu And You). And I love meeting new bloggers too! Glad I ran into Tiffany of She’s So Savvy 🙂 Hope to see you all at upcoming events soon!
