BENEFIT OPENING: BERLIN'S VERY FIRST BENEFIT BOUTIQUE

Benefit Boutique Opening Berlin lisforlois

The San Francisco magic has landed. That's right Benefit BOUTIQUE not counter. It's the second boutique in the whole of Germany and were are lucky to finally have one in Berlin. With a new boutique come new offers. Besides the benefits of the eyebrow bar, testing and/or buying Benefit products, a quick fresh up or professional application of false lashes before you head out to a party, you can now go for a spray tan in light, light to medium or dark, fully body waxing (Brazilian included!) and facial waxing.

Last Thursday morning Louisa and I had the chance to go check out the new Boutique and celebrate with cute little very delicious cupcakes, cake pops and push up cake (this new shit is extremely good!) and champagne in the morning. Together with Isabelle Hahn, the head of marketing of Benefit Germany and Michael Noss, manager of Karstadt Ku'damm, the bow was cut officially opening the new Boutique.

What's different about the new Boutique and a regular counter? At first sight the Boutique within Karstadt may seem like just another counter, but the difference is that it comes with 2 private rooms allowing for body waxing and spray tan to take place. You wouldn't want to get a fake tan or Brazilian infront of shopping customers right? It's really cutely decorated and there is enough space for you to get your beauty upgrade done - be it waxing or spray tan - without getting claustrophobic.

All invited guests were lucky enough to try any service for free on the day of the opening. Louisa decided to try out the spray tan. Since she wasn't dressed appropriately we came back a few days later.

Her experience and thoughts on the Benefit spray tan:

"When we were asked to try one of the treatments Benefit offers I chose a fake tan for 25€. Not only was I curious about how fake tanning would work on me, I was also eager to see the system of professional fake-tanning. On Tuesday I had my tanning appointment. I was lead into little cabin, given a bathing cap and stylish slippers. The artist explained the system and showed me the poses I had to strike for the perfectly even result. After 10 minutes she was pleased with the colour adding that it looked 'sunkissed' and 'natural'. When I looked into the mirror I was confronted with my dark tanned self... Instead of a nautural even colour, my body looked patchy and fake. Noticing my worried face, she promised that I could take a shower after 8 hours when the colour has fully developed and the outer dark colour would vanish completely.
After my shower I was left with a golden sunkissed tan. The final result is intense but real natural looking. Only the patches on my hand reveal the tanning process. I am truly pleased with the outcome, my new tan, but would recommend the light colour for "tan-beginners". Don't be scared by the first intense colour, it's only a layer that settles on top, it'll look good in the end- promise"

And I finally got to try out eyebrow waxing and colouring. You may have read my boasting none sense tweets about how awesome my brows look on Twitter.
Girls you don't know what a pair of good looking eyebrows can do for you. Self esteem booster! More on that later.

  17. Hey Lois,

    thanks for your comment and the link to your blog! Just about to explore it. This sounds like an interesting and delicious opening.

    I have absolutely no experiences with benefit, but I've heard much about it. I don't know if I would get something done there - I'm just not like that. I even cut my hair myself (seriously!). So I'd go there for shopping and testing some products more.

    Have a nice weekend!

  26. Ohhhh. Das Gewinnspiel ist ja völlig an mir vorüber gegangen.
    Wie gut, dass du eben bei FB nochmal drauf hingewiesen hast :D

    Die benefit-Produkte muss man ja alleine schon wegen der Verpackung einfach nur lieb haben... sooo schön.
