EVENT: Ego Pharmaceuticals QV Launch ft Brand Ambassador Kate Ritchie

I recently had the pleasure of joining QV's campaign launch welcoming their new ambassador Kate Ritchie. The event took place at the iconic QVB Tearoom, this is my foodie shame moment as I have never actually been to the Tearoom and only admired the photos I've seen online. I was blown away by the beautiful interior decor, high ceilings, chandeliers... like a child in a candy store. This couldn't have been a more perfect venue for the launch!

To start off, we were greeted by drinks, I had a melon tea, orange and raspberry juice. I love events as it is the perfect time to reunite with known bloggers and meet new ones.

Following a quick mingle, we were seated at our table with a QV centre piece and seasonal fruit platters. We each had a yoghurt, honey and chia seed cup - I've been craving this all week after watching a few YouTube video about breakfast options.

We received a very informative presentation from Dr Penny Alexander who is a Dermatologist from The Skin Hospital in Darlinghurst. I have included a great slide below from Dr Alexander's presentation to assist with skin prep for this winter!

 We were also treated to a Q and A session with Kate Ritchie, the new face of QV, she is as gorgeous in the media as she is in person! Kate walked us through her first experience with QV and how she fell in love with the products before she became their ambassador. Kate was such a lovely and genuine person, it was a pleasure meeting her!

All seriousness aside, let's have a look at the delicious breakfast Lauren from Ego Skincare had organised for us! For main we had twice cooked egg, black forest bake house smoked gypsy ham, brioche and salsa verde (I'm an egg and ham girl, this was DELICIOUS!!!!)

There's also a cute bottle of Glycerin pictured below, that was not eaten but I did almost pour the content in my yoghurt as I usually associate Glycerin with food and sweeteners. Glyerin is actually a key ingredient in QV products - that's why our skin feels so smooth, soft and hydrated after use :)

After breakfast we head over to get our skin checked to see exactly how much hydration we have. It was on a scale of 0 to 100. I've used this twice previous on my face and both times the machine indicated I have severely dehydrated skin. Unfortunately we were unable to use this on our made up face so we had to test our body parts. I came out with a 30/100 (dehydrated skin). Looks like i'll need to lather some more moisturiser on my body!

And here's a photo of myself with Kate Ritchie. I couldn't pass this opportunity. Although my photo posture is still a work in process.

A massive thanks to QV for having me!!!
