EVENT: WITCH & MONDRIAN

Staying in a hotel overnight always feels like an absolute luxury to me - big beds, mini bars and room service - what's there not to love?

Last week Witch skincare invited me for dinner and an overnight stay at the brand new Mondrian hotel to celebrate their newest campaign #SwitchToWitch and I took my camera along to photograph the evening!











After arriving at the swanky new hotel on the thames, I checked into my room to find Witch products dotted around, as well as a personalised PJ set which I absolutely love.  I trotted down to dinner with some of my fav bloggers including Lily, Victoria, Leanne & Niomi for a delicious 3 course meal of scallops, lamb wellington & apple pie.
We had the chance to talk to Dermatologist Dr Justine Hextall who explained that skin looks & feels it's worst during the winter compared to any other seasons, which is why we need to switch up our skincare regimes to accommodate this.

After dinner Andrew joined me and we rushed back up to my room to have a pamper!  I changed straight into my pyjamas and used the Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash to take my makeup off,  followed by the Witch Hazel Bursting Beads Wash as I really wanted to try it after hearing such good things at dinner.

I finished with some moisturiser, ordered a peppermint tea and climbed into bed.  #SwitchToWitch is a nice little campaign reminding us to look after our skin all year round and I've now added some Witch products into my daily routine - my favourite is currently the Mattifying Moisturizer (with SPF15) which makes the perfect base for my makeup.

Big thanks to Witch for the evening - I felt like a princess.

Do you switch your skincare regime in the winter? Have you tried Witch products?

  5. It sounds like a fab relaxing night, might need to have a look at the Witch collection. I remember using them when I turned 13 ages ago and from what I can remember they were great for keeping skin hydrated and the horrible spots away too!!

  6. Gorgeous pictures - I do love a good hotel stay too! The only product I use from witch is a little blemish stick which I do find works wonders! I don't really switch my routine, other than using more oils at night to lock in moisture and avoid dryness.

  12. Witch hazel is a terrible ingredient for your skin! Any benefits (namely, tannins; although, these can be irritating in high amounts) are removed during the production of witch hazel water. Furthermore, the majority of the Witch products contain high levels of denatured alcohol. This is a well-documented disaster for your skin!

    If you have blemish-prone skin, you need a salicylic acid exfoliant (containing no alcohol and formulated at the correct pH for the active ingredient to work) and a well-formulated retinol product. Even if your skin doesn't appear to be irritated, it is. Over time, your skin will show the signs of abuse from using skincare laden with denatured alcohol and known irritants such as witch hazel.

  14. Sounds like you had a lovely time. I try to switch to more moisturizing products and use more oils during Fall/Winter. The witch range looks really good :)
