I don’t often blog about events which I attend but I feel like this ones is a also a bit of a hotel review. Last week I was (very!) lucky enough to be invited to have dinner and spend the night at the newly opened The Mondrian Hotel London with Witch Skincare. The hotel is located on London’s South Bank, next door to the Oxo Tower and in the Sea Containers building. As you can imagine, the hotel comes with pretty impressive views of London, featuring most of the key London buildings such as St. Pauls Cathedral and the London Eye, as well as some of the newer buildings to grace the London skyline such as The Shard and the Walkie Talkie.
So on to the event…
Once I had dropped everything in my room and had a chance to make myself look midly more presentable I headed down to dinner. Dinner was Autumnal themed meaning the centre piece was made up of candles, pumpkins, acorns, pine cones and flowers which ran down the length of the long table. We had the chance to mingle with other bloggers, talk to the Witch Skincare girls as well as ask the dermatologist (Dr Justine Hextall) some questions.
My question was about ‘exfoliating toners’ as it seems that bloggers are so anti traditional ones and she confirmed that as long as they are fairly gentle such as the Witch Exfoliating Face Wash they can really make a difference to the skin. I’ve started using the Exfoliating Face Wash myself and there is something a little more satisfying about it compared to an exfoliating toner and my skin has been enjoying it too. The dermatologist spoke largely about how the autumn/winter can affect our skin; she told us we should avoid hot showers, use an emollient cleanser and still use SPF. You can find all of Dr Justine Hextall’s tip on the Witch Website.
After a beautiful dinner and a few drinks I went up to my room to remove all my makeup, slip into my PJ’s, watch a little TV and get some sleep. I had such a lovely time at the event and can’t wait to dig in and try some of the Witch Skincare products I was lucky enough to take home with me.
Had a great stay at The Mondrian London and it was particularly nice to spend it with some of my favourite bloggers.
