The Launch of Perfect Pearl (@Pearlworldinc) at Barneys New York (@BarneysNY) during #NYFW #PerfectPearl {Photos}

This has been an incredibly busy month and it's barely at it's midpoint! I've had the opportunity to attend a number of amazing events this month and catch some great shows during New York Fashion Week, and I'll try to get event recaps posted as soon as possible!
Last week I headed into the city earlier than usual, for a very special breakfast. A new brand of luxury skincare for both Mom AND Baby called Perfect Pearl, hit the market recently and they held a special Breakfast Launch at Fred's at Barneys New York City. The event was presented in conjunction with my favorite Social Media Dynamic Duo, The Moms!
I wanted to recap this event during Wordless Wednesday, because although this post is far from being entirely Wordless, it's super picture heavy, so I thought it would fit best as our Wordless Wednesday this week.
When we arrived at Barneys and got off the elevator to enter Fred's, we immediately heard Harp music and thought we landed in heaven! :)

Had to zoom in and get the details on the Harp!
The music set such a serene ambience, and me being 'The Official #TwitterPartyDJ' I definitely know that music really does set a mood. It was a touch I didn't expect but definitely enjoyed!

Once we got settled in, we just had to grab one of these, and they definitely tasted as good as they looked!

 Look how cute the tables were set up!
Had to get a close up of the Pearls! Perfect Pearl uses Pearl Powder and Pearl Extract to make their line of Luxury Skin Care for both mom and baby. Pearl Extract is one of the most expensive ingredients in Cosmetic use today, but the Pearl which has been utilized by many cultures for centuries, including Asian, Mayan, Egyptian and Indians for health purposes, to gain a youthful vitality and for beautifying the skin.

These lovely ladies came around to each table to allow everyone to sample the products!

The Maternity/Mom's Line Consists of:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Bust Serum with Pure Pearl: This one has a fresh, light texture, the Amino Acids in the pearl powder and the active ingredient, Osilift, helps promote firmness and prevent loss of elasticity, relieving skin tension and soothing breast tightness.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Nursing Comfort Cream with Pure Pearl: This was formulated for moms who have chosen to breastfeed. It consists of a blend of pearl extract and an ultra pure grade of lanolin, which not only provides relief but also protection to tender nipples and also lightens nipple darkness, this product is safe to use while breastfeeding. (and for those of you who are like me, and are not yet moms, this can also be used as an incredible hand cream or anywhere you may have dark spots!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Stretch Mark Cream with Pure Pearl: This is a more creamy and fine textured cream, it's active ingredient Sepilift DPHP, along with lanolin, organic aloe, vitamin E, shea butter and a mixture of exotic oils actively stimulates skin cells and promotes tissue regeneration which all helps to reduce the size, depth and color of stretch marks. And again for my fellow non-moms, don't think this is for moms only, anywhere you have stretch marks, tummy, arms, hips from rapid weight gain and loss, this cream is a God Send! It's not just exclusively for moms! Doesn't your skin deserve pure and natural ingredients?

The Baby Collection Consists of:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Baby Cleansing Foam For Hair and Body: This unique cleansing foam for hair and body cleansing contains their signature Pearl Extract and provitamin B12. This sulfate free cleanser is gentle for baby's hair, scalp and all over body without drying their skin. It's good for everyday use on newborns and babies with sensitive to normal skin. (and again ladies, this is equally good for your skin as well!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Baby Daily Moisture Lotion with Pure Pearl: A blend of pure pearl extract, drago-calm, grape seed and safflower oils provides immediate and lasting hydration for baby's skin, leaving a porcelain shine-free finish.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Baby Diaper Cream with Pure Pearl: Use this cream to prevent as well treat the skin irritation that is caused by urine and diaper chafing on baby's skin. It utilizes Zinc Oxide in pearl extract and is blended with shea butter and castor seed oil, it seals out wetness and softens the skin.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Baby Face Cream with Pure Pearl: Considered to be the 'ultimate face cream' it contains a luxurious level of pearl extract, oat flour, oat kernel extract and safflower oil. Perfect for the face of newborns and babies with delicate skin.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Baby Pearl Powder with Pure Pearl: This Ultra-Silky baby pearl powder contains a luxurious level of pure pearl powder and natural cornstarch to soothe and heal irritated skin. This was my standout item of the Baby Collection. I LOVE this powder. I actually like to use baby powder on my own skin, and fell in love with this powder when I applied it to my skin during the event, this one is definitely all for me! :)


Then the moms introduced us to the Founder and President of Perfect Pearl, Ying Zhou Eliason!


It was fantastic to get a behind the scenes and learn about what drove Ying to develop the line. A visit from Ying's Grandmother four years ago when Ying's first daughter was born and her grandmother brought the gift of pearl powder, which showed such incredible results on her daughter's skin that she went in search of products here in the U.S. that utilize Pearl Powder or Pearl Extracts for baby and couldn't find any, prompting her to develop her own line.

We learned from their chemist as well as an MD who is endorsing the brand that Perfect Pearl products are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, colorant and paraben free!

My Take:

As far as I'm concerned you can't really put a price on using the finest ingredients available to you to protect your skin and your baby's skin! If their launch's attention to detail is any indication of what lies ahead, this is definitely a brand to watch!

Infant Nutrition Twitter Party TONIGHT, let's help save #preemies in the #NICU sponsored by @hhmilkbank

'The Official #TwitterPartyDJ', @Tracy_Iglesias of Ascending Butterfly (@Ascending1) is hosting tonight's #HHMilkBank Infant Nutrition Twitter Party along with @JessieNuez, the tweet chat is being sponsored by @hhmilkbank, not only will there be prizes, but we are going to learn ways to help preemies currently in the NICU! So many moms have reached out to me since the RSVP page for this twitter party was posted, to tell me that when they had their babies, they produced more breastmilk than they even knew what to do with. It's so sad to know that so much life saving milk is being thrown away when there are babies that desperately need it!

This will also be a bi-lingual twitter party conducted in English and Spanish! The English RSVP page is HERE, (the rafflecopter widget is also on this page, so you can just RSVP here as well) and the Spanish RSVP page is HERE.

Helping Hands Milk Bank is operated by Prolacta Bioscience, they collect excess breast milk to help save the lives of babies who are in the neonatal intensive care unit. Excess breast milk is used to make nutritional products from 100% human milk which has a significant impact on the lives of the infants and their families. They also make the donation work harder, for every ounce of donated qualified breast milk collected by Helping Hands Milk Bank $1 will be contributed to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in support of Breast Cancer Research.
