Calm Down and Cool Down Event with Skyn Iceland
By 0 Comments|
I was recently invited to Calm Down and Cool Down with Skyn Iceland at Henri Bendel and it was a great event!
I have tried Skyn Iceland products before thanks to Beauty Army but I had no idea that their product range was so large and that there was such a great story behind everything. Sarah Kugelman, founder and CEO of Skyn Iceland, started researching beneficial skincare products after she was told by a doctor that due to chronic stress that she may not live to see age 40. What a wakeup call! The idea for Skyn Iceland was fueled by a trip to Iceland where Sarah was taken aback by the country’s general “stress free” lifestyle. She describes Iceland as being the “ideal landscape for stress-free living” due to the country’s purity, cleanliness, and abundance of natural resources.
Thus, Skyn Iceland was born and to date it is the only skincare line designed to treat the effects of stress on the skin.
Naturally the theme of the Skyn Iceland event was to Calm Down and Cool Down and we did just that! Guests were treated to manicures, stress tests, and 10 minute eye treatments all while enjoying fresh juice from Liquiteria and cupcakes from Kaked. Manicures, eye treatments, and cupcakes? Sign me up!
The first stop I made was to the adorable manicure station equipped with Butter London nail treatments and manicurists from SpaNail. I unfortunately ruined my manicure seconds after getting out of the chair so there are no photos…whomp whomp.
After my manicure I headed over to the stress test station where I placed an indicator under my tongue while the technician explained that this test uses a Corcora Meter which detects Alph-amylase, an enzyme detected in saliva that is produced when you’re stressed out. It was pretty interesting!
I’ve had a pretty crazy month so I was interested to see how stressed I was according to the Corcoran Meter. I’m embarrassed to say that I scored a 92! Technically the chart maxes out at 91 so I guess you can say that my stress is officially “off the charts.”
After getting the news that I’m on the verge of a total stress meltdown I quickly hopped over to the eye clinic station where I rocked the Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels for 10 minutes. I have used these before and absolutely loved them so I was excited to use them again at the event. The Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels help to firm, de-puff, and reduce premature wrinkling in just 10 minutes. They feel absolutely amazing!
Skyn Iceland was also kind enough to provide an amazing gift bag to each attendant so be on the lookout for some fun reviews in the near future. I’ll certainly be using these products to Calm Down and Cool Down this summer!
Until next time
