Last Tuesday night the lovely editor of Flourish magazine online, Jane and I attended a Blogger event at Dermalogica‘s WA headquarters in Fremantle. The first to arrive amidst an August shower, I was greeted by three lovely smiling (and completely flawless) faces, one of which was Claire Crouch’s – the company’s corporate trainer. Claire grew up in London out of the harsh sun and thus has magnificent skin and a killer sense of humour. I liked her immediately. In front of the pretty faces sat a large plate of scones from which I was too scared to take on account of their delicious-looking, but will-definitely-drop-on-the-clinical-Dermalogica-floors cream fillings. Instead, I took a glass of champers. Damn.
Jane arrived not long after and we had a quick tour of the complex. It’s all very white and bright and exciting because that’s exactly how you want your skin to be! There were two training rooms, a face-mapping stall set up, a kitchen area with fridge, microwave, herbal teas, etc and bathrooms too. The facility is there for therapists who use Dermalogica products to go and get the low down on ingredients and skin health so they can then transfer it to their customers. Brilliant!

After our tour, we headed into Room 2 where a powerpoint presentation and lots of Dermalogica goodies were set up for us, amidst notepads, pencils and information booklets. We took a seat and Claire launched right into explaining the five Dermalogica steps to healthy skin, while Tina kindly demonstrated (how brave!) as we went along. Much information was shared and it is my beauty editor duty to pass it on. So grab a cup of green tea and settle in for a mind-blowing info sesh that will change your skin forever!
