Packing the bite of a conference and networking seminar into two sessions isn't easy, but they sure make it look like it is!
Here are the Exhibitors in Alphabetical Order:
|Pictured Above: ACNEase Botanical Herbal Supplements|
Bodyography Professional Cosmetics - They gave me ice and shade and butterflies you know how I feel about that, if you give me shade I serve it to you right back. I took no pictures and as I didn't like their attitude if you are interested in them, google them. I have no time for snotty people nor do I have free ad space for them either. I truly don't get why brands appear at conferences or events that obviously don't really want to be there. Color me confused. I found it amusing they were trading product samples with other vendors, but wouldn't offer them to the Editors/Bloggers in attendance. I can only give back what I was given, which in this case is absolutely nothing.

CLEANSE by Lauren Napier - Luxury cleansing wipes and makeup remover, remove even long-wear formulation makeup as well as impurities from the skin. Much like ACNEase she believes Beauty comes from within and the facial cleansing wipes are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and are even safe for contact lens wearers! She tested the wipe on Mama Butterfly who was truly surprised at just how much it picked up and the amount of impurities in addition to just the makeup it took off her skin, I got to test mine out that night and have fallen in love with them myself. She is right, what you take OFF is just as important as what you put on. With the 'liquid' element of these wipes coming from Aloe, you are removing makeup AND hydrating your skin!

Kiss Products - Often times at events I have to pass on the Manicures because waiting for them to dry and shaking hands with people you meet don't go hand-in-hand, (pun sort of intended.) With KISS Products you have the shine of a Gel Manicure with Press-On-Nails that apply easily with adhesive and can be removed by popping off or using regular acetone if one is particularly stuck on. I was impressed with how well these really held up, I'm constantly typing which makes regular manicures chip so easily (or I somehow always manage to run my the zipper of my handbag across freshly manicured nails and ruin them!) with these I didn't have to worry and I could go about my routine as usual! After my recent makeup debacle where a supposed 'celeb makeup artist' made my eyes turn dragon fire red after he ran a mascara wand directly across my eyeball I skipped the lashes station, so thankfully Mama Butterfly took one for the team and tried the lashes which she loved, and we both got imPRESS Gel Press on Manicures in the exact same color and we weren't anywhere near each other when we picked our colors, TWINSIES! They were a popular station and super fun.

Not pictured but included in the Editor Review Bag:

Happy Hands - We originally featured the UV Nail Glove in the coverage of the Beauty Press Spotlight Day on the Zephyr Yacht HERE. The first time around we didn't have a chance to get samples so I'm so glad to see they were included in the bags as I think this is a great idea to protect skin from UV rays especially from shellac/gel manicures!
