Face2Face with Therapon, Ulta and More!

What a lovely Saturday last weekend! I woke to beautiful weather and a happy household.

I got up, walked, got dressed and went down to the Desmond in Malvern where I met my friend Jo-Lynne who organized a wonderful pampering morning called Face2Face. There we were treated to a mini-facial by Christina of Therapon Skin Health, make-up by Ulta Beauty and manicures by ladies from a local nail salon.

{Can you believe I actually went OUT OF THE HOUSE without MAKEUP to a room of BLOGGERS with CAMERAS? Now, that’s brave, I tell ya.}

And, of course, there were nice swag bags too. I came home with a number of goodies including a 4 step Theraderm Skin Renewal System including: a cleansing wash, fruit acid exfoliant, OPC reparative gel, and an enriched moisturizer. I can tell you now – I am glad they numbered the steps on the bottles.

I’ve been trying the system the last two nights and it’s kind of like coming home after the hairdresser does your hair. You want to do it exactly the same as the expert but you feel a bit insecure the next day. Can I do this? Can I really fit this many steps into my routine?

But, I tell you, ohhh, your face glows when you are done. It feels so nice. I am a convert. At the event, we heard a bit about the background of Therapon and the amazing Dr. Beckman.

James S. Beckman, M.D. is a board-certified plastic surgeon and chemist, a life member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the founder and CEO of Therapon Skin Health®. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Arkansas Medical School in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1970, followed by a surgery residency at the University of Arkansas Medical Center in 1975 and a plastic surgery residency at the University of Tennessee in 1977. Dr. Beckman set up his private practice, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in 1977 and served there for 24 years. In response to skin concerns voiced by his patients, Dr. Beckman began developing unique products to restore skin to its optimal health and enhance the effects of plastic surgery. 

And, here’s the morning crowd who joined me! {Another group came in the afternoon. I hear we were a bit more subdued in the am.}

{Disclosure: We were treated to a lovely morning with no obligation to post about it but I because I wanted to – and all thoughts and opinions are my own! ;) }

Additional thanks to swag bag sponsors: Lands’ End for the canvas totes filled with lovely gifts from Lunchskins, Unforgettable Moments by PaylessShoes, Heartwork OrganizingHappy Family FoodBendables and Divalicious Chocolate Dessert.
