I was invited by the lovely team at Magnum PR to attend the blogger launch for Palmolive’s new range. I’ve always been a fan of Palmolive products, they always smell soooooo good! I was to find out that these were no exception!
The launch was held at The Winery in Surry Hills, one of my favourite eateries and wine bars in Sydney, which is part of the Keystone Group! Located on central Crown Street in Surry Hills, it is the ideal location for an after work event (especially as it was blowing a gale outside and we were in the middle of a storm, The Winery provided the perfect after work retreat!)
In addition to an introduction to the products, we were also treated to a Q& A by the stunning and lovely Alexis Elia, a role model of mine. Alexis is the Beauty and lifestyle Director over at Shop til you Drop and knows a thing or two about beauty products.
Upon arrival I was presented with the most amazing Strawberry cocktail, the options were mango and strawberry to reflect the new shower products from Palmolive! I chatted to the girls I’d met before, along with some new faces I hadn’t seen before, all whilst being treated to the most amazing canapés – mini shepherds pies, quiches, roast beef on rye bread and salmon, yum!
After a nibble, we sat down and Alexis spoke about beauty products and what they meant to her, i.e. the reasons why you associate smells with memories and that a recent study has shown that nice smells can be associated with pain loss – to which she added if that’s the case she’s taking a shed load of the new Palmolive Strawberry Smoother Body Butter Body Wash and Luscious Mango Body Butter Body Wash with her when she has children, ha!
Complete with delicious strawberry and mango fragrances, these indulgent new body washes provide the perfect fusion of cleansing shower gel and ultra-moisturising body butter to leave skin satiny smooth and superbly clean.
When then mingled for another hour or so and then braved the rain to head home about 8pm – it was a school night after all! I got back just in time to hear Cheryl Cole screech her way though ‘I need you now’ for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert. (As a side note, I’ve lived here in Australia for nearly four years and watching the Jubilee celebrations back in London made me feel more homesick than I ever have… I digress)
After the concert I decided to trial the products before bedtime, and might I just say wow! They’re so rich and creamy in texture, the Palmolive Strawberry Smoother Body Butter Body Wash uses small exfoliating particles which work to scrub away old cells and leave your skin’s surface looking soft and supple, which is just perfect if you’re looking to apply some fake tan after as it takes away all the dead skin cells so your tan lasts longer! Even better it’s gentle enough to be used as part of your daily beauty regime; you’ll be blown away by the gorgeous berry fragrance that lingers on your skin after each wash.
The indulgent Palmolive Luscious Mango Body Butter Body Wash is a pampering must! It is so creamy, you actually feel like you’re rubbing moisturising lotion into your skin in the shower, I’m also told that the formula provides long-lasting moisture and hydration, I wasn’t disappointed.
So if you’re looking for the perfect way to indulge in some ‘me’ time and bring a little bit of sunshine to your daily shower ritual over the winter months in Sydney – with all the benefits of gorgeous fragranced, super soft skin – then you have no excuse not to try the new Strawberry Smoother Body Butter and Luscious Mango Body Butter body washes from Palmolive!
Priced at only $6.49 (400ml), both variants are available at your nearest supermarket and selected pharmacies now.
