I got the early train on Friday morning and headed downtown for Biotherm’s Valentine’s Day Breakfast, held in Cruda Cafe at the St. Lawrence Market.
The event was held to commemorate Biotherm’s Valentine’s Day collaboration with artist Olivia Mew – she designed a not-so-typical yet oh-so-practical range of cards for Biotherm (see the “tu sens bon” card next to my coffee cup in the first picture – isn’t it gorgeous?) Available at Biotherm counters, each card comes with a his or hers skincare sample! She also spent Valentine’s Day creating personalized illustrations for lucky customers at the Hudson Bay on Queen Street. I had such a fun time chatting with Olivia at the breakfast about our mutual love of England. She promised to create a drawing for me – I’ll be sure to add it here when I get it!
Biotherm is a luxury skincare brand owned by L’Oreal. Its products are inspired by the healing powers of thermal water. The Aquasource line uses nutrient-rich plankton and sugar-based Mannose to provide ultimate hydration benefits to the skin.
Leighton Meester has recently been signed as Biotherm’s Global
Ambassador. I think she’s the perfect choice – you couldn’t pick a
better face for luxurious skincare than Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf!
As we left the event, we were gifted with Biotherm tote bags designed by
Olivia Mew. They contained Biotherm’s original star product – Aquasource gel, as well as the Deep Serum and Night Jelly. Will definitely update on how these products work out for me.
