An Afternoon of Spa & Tea Party with La Mer

September 10, 2013

Luxury skincare brand La Mer recently hosted The Spoiled Mummy and her more than twenty girlfriends to an afternoon of Spa and Tea Party! 🙂

The Deluxe Suite of The Peninsula Manila on the 11th floor was transformed into a haven of bliss, pampering and relaxation.

The luxurious products of La Mer were on display.  Photo above shows the rich and heavenly scented La Mer Body Creme.

We all had a wonderful time sampling all the La Mer products to see which ones will suit our skin’s needs best.

The other half of our Deluxe Suite was converted into the day Spa. Makeshift treatment rooms covered in light fabric were setup, lights were dimmed and soft music was played in the background to add to the very relaxing spa ambience.

This is how the treatment room looks like inside. This is where the La Mer facial massage and treatments were done.

While some friends were relaxing in the Spa area, the other ladies were having their own Tea Party in the other side of the suite! 🙂

And of course, a tea party at The Peninsula Manila would not be complete without some Freshly-Baked Raisin Scones with Clotted Cream and Preserves, which turned out to be everyone’s favorite! 🙂

Desserts were composed of some Fresh Fruit Tarts

and Mini Chocolate Truffle Cake

Coffee, Tea and Hot Chocolate were free-flowing on that lovely afternoon too! 🙂

La Mer’s blooming Skincare Therapist, Joanne, was there to teach us the basics and benefits of proper skincare.

La Mer’s Jill Baysa gave us some products to try.

The mini skincare workshop taught us a lot of things. We found out that yes — it is still possible to turn back the hands of time! We just need to know how to take care of our skin properly and choose the right products for our skin type and needs.

Cliche as it sounds, but we all know that early prevention is still better than cure! 🙂

My friend who willingly volunteered was taught the proper way of applying the products on her face. Who would have thought that there are actually different methods to applying different products on our skin?

Another friend of mine here was also taught how to use the applicator wand when used with the La Mer eye treatment products. The applicator wand is used to massage and help cool the area around the eyes and de-puff eye bags!

Another La Mer therapist was available for hand massage using the luxurious Body Creme.

Thank you to all my friends who came to join me despite their busy, hectic schedules!

It was a beautiful afternoon filled with lots of food, fun and girlfriends! 🙂

At the end of the Spa and Tea Party, everyone received a small gift box from La Mer containing samples of the Regenerating Serum, the Moisturizing Creme and the Eye Concentrate.

And because I love spoiling my friends (they are after all what I call The Spoiled Girlfriends :)), they all came home with The Spoiled Mummy’s eco-friendly, recyclable canvas tote bag! (I gave some of these away too to some lucky readers in my First Anniversary blog give-away contest!)

Thanks to the relaxing and cozy atmosphere that was filled with a lot of pampering, fun stories and a lot of laughter in between — it was indeed an afternoon well-spent. We all agreed that it was a welcome break for all of us busy mummies and career women. It was definitely something we all needed to refresh us and make us better at who we are and at what we do.

Thank you La Mer, you spoiled us! 🙂

La Mer is available in Rustan’s Makati and Rustan’s Shangri-la Department Stores.  

A very special thanks to the only male in the group, JR Torres, for these photos!
