30 Hours In London With Clarins


Last week I was invited to spend 30 hours in London with one of my favourite skincare and beauty brands, Clarins. Clarins was actually one of the first brands I ever used and I love so many of their products so I was over the moon to be invited to their fabulous event to celebrate the launch of their re-invented multi-active moisturisers and their new Summer collection.


I headed down to London on Thursday afternoon and had a car waiting for me at Euston to take me to the Mondrian hotel where myself and lots of other bloggers were staying for the event. I was checked in by the lovely Clarins PR girls and given my room key. My room was absolutely beautiful - it had a huge double bed, flat screen TV on the wall, amazing views of London and the best shower ever. Seriously, I need a huge waterfall shower at home - they're the best! There was also a little goodie bag full of Clarins minis for me waiting on the bed. I thought that was a lovely touch and I always love having mini products for travelling.


After settling into the room, I got ready to meet the other bloggers (including my fave gal Em) before heading to Sketch for dinner. I've only ever been to Sketch once for afternoon tea but have always wanted to eat in the 'pink room' so when we arrived and realised Clarins had booked out the WHOLE room, we were pretty blown away. It was decorated with beautiful flowers and the Pink champagne was well and truly flowing from the moment we stepped into the room.


We had the best night eating yummy food and it was so nice to see so many of my favourite bloggers all in one room. Claris had even invited international bloggers who had flown from all over the world to be there which was pretty amazing! The evening was so relaxed which I really loved - we all chatted the night away eating yummy food and sipping champagne - perfect! When I got back to the room, the Clarins night time multi-active was waiting for me ready to use before bed. It's such a gorgeous thick cream and smells amazing - it sunk into my skin straight away and make my skin look really glow. On first impressions, I love it!!


After a great nights sleep in the Mondrian's super comfy beds, we had a fairly early start to head to the Shard to do yoga - how cool is that? I have to say, after a few too many champagnes the night before, I did have a bit of a sore head but having Clarins new morning multi active delivered to my room at 7:30 soon perked me up and the yoga session definitely had me feeling more awake. Damn, some of those poses burn!! Unfortunately it wasn't the best weather in London so the views weren't as great as we'd hoped but it was still amazing regardless. I'd never been up the Shard before so at least I can tick that one off my list now. We then headed back to our rooms to order some room service (I went for the vegetarian full english and it was yummy!) before heading to the rooftop to hear more about the new multi active products. You can read all about them here and I'll be sure to do a full review when I've used them for a bit long but so far, I'm in love!!


After the talk, we headed back to our rooms, packed up our things and met in the lobby to check out. I was so sad to be leaving such a beautiful hotel and I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for somewhere to stay in London. After checking out we jumper in taxis (which were personalised with Clarins logos by the way - talk about attention to detail!) to Bourne & Hollingworth, the prettiest little restaurant. We were treated to nibbles and some of Clarins new high Summer collection was a laid out for us to look at. Everything is so beautiful and I can't wait until they're released - especially those summery Instant Light Lip Perfectors. I love those things!


I had the best 30 hours in London with Clarins and can't thank them enough for hosting such a fabulous event!

Will you be trying their multi active creams?!
