I walked into one of the most enchanting roof top parties I have ever been to in NYC. It was for The Body Shop's launch of Oils of Life and Spa of the World products. Held at Gallow Green at the McKittrick Hotel it was like a tropical hideaway far from home. I was given a personalized card guiding me step by step on a path to experience luxurious body oils and opulent scents.
My hands were bathed in milky oils and cleaned with a hot towel. I wondered around cocktail in hand taking in the scene. Oils of Life were slowly poured onto my skin to simply feel the pure lavishness. I then sat in a gilded gold chair to learn more about the precious ingredients.
Jennifer Hirsch, a beauty botanist enlightened us with her knowledge of seeds in skincare and their revolutionary effect. We escaped with Vanda Serrador, a facialist and body care expert to understand ancient beauty rituals. Finally our scents were awaken with captivating aromas.
I walked out with the most extravagant gift bag and could not wait to get home and pamper myself a bit. If you follow my snapchat (@dawndelrusso) you will know the first treatment I tried that night.
