TheSkintopic 1st Anniversary!!

Harooo awesomesauces!!!

Its FRIDAY!!! Finally the weekend! What have you guys got planned for it? I’m going to a couple of events with my girls, and then heading over for a quick trip Pahang after! Updates coming soon =D

Okay I’m gonna stop rambling and go back to my blog post. I attended theSkintopic first anniversary event on Thursday, all thanks to the Butterfly Project! Thank you Butterflies for giving me the opportunity to be a part of a fun event! It was held at Pavilion KL on the 5th floor, which is where their concept store is located.

Established in 2012, theSkintopic main focus is making quality skin care products from New Zealand readily accessible to their customers. At the moment, theSkintopic is the only distributor of natural and botanical skincare and bodycare brands from New Zealand, mainly Olive, Tebe, Linden Leaves, Wild Ferns and the latest addition to the family, Evolu which was introduced in Malaysia this June.

We had the Chairman and Founder of Linden Leaves, one of the New Zealand skincare & bodycare brands that theSkintopic distributes in Malaysia,  Brigit Blair who came down from Christchurch, New Zealand to show us how theSkintopic Aromatherapy Synergy Body Oils are made, and I must say, I haven’t came across their products before this. but I love how the products smell, and feel on the skin. They come from New Zealand, and most of their ingredients as well! Here’s a couple of pictures of the products!

The event started off with a quick speech from the emcee, introducing Brigit Blair. Her speech was quick, about how Linden Leaves Aromatherapy Synergy oils started out, which she developed and formulated herself, and how they’ve now branched out into skin care ranges and how the response has been in the Malaysian Market.  She also was explaining how the oils are made, packaged, and all of it is done with love by hand! Awww..

Speech time.  See if you can spot Tammy! =P

After the speeches and everything, we got down the the most fun part of all!
Making the oils by ourselves! Of course we didn’t “make” the oils, but what we actually did was package the oils into the bottles! Brigit showed us how its done, and some of us got to assemble the body oils ourselves by filling the bottles with the freeze dried ingredient such as lavender and rose followed by the body oils.

lets make some noise. and oils!

Basically, what we had to do, was to cut the stems, and flowers, place them into the bottles, seal, and package them. It was not as easy as it sounds! The flowers are fragile since they are freeze dried, and you have to take precaution to not let the petals and buds fall off. I tell you, I got butter fingers, so I wasn’t sure if I could do it!

We had two types of flowers, Roses, and Lavender and I got to try packaging the Rose one!

ANd the surprising bit? After packaging our oils, we got to keep the big bottle for ourselves! OMG yay! The big bottle retails are like RM200++, so I was really lucky to have volunteered to do the demonstration!

After the DIY demonstration, they had lucky draws, and the lucky girls who won got to go back with gift sets of  the Linden Leaves Aromatherapy Synergy sets in Memories, Pick Me Up and Absolute Dreams worth RM414!

So lucky!! I didnt win anything, but I have my full sized Synergy oil, so imma happy girl!! =)

The event was fun, and the DIY was even more so! I’m really glad that The Butterfly Project invited me for this event, and I cant wait for their next event! Meanwhile, I’m going to try out my Rose Absolute Dreams Synergy Oil, and go to blissful sleep! Its like 1 am right now as I’m typing this you see =D I’ll be doing a review of the Rose Absolute Dreams Synergy Oil soon , so do stay tuned for it!  For now, enjoy this post and PS:  my giveaway ends in 2 more days,  hurry up and get your entries in!
