A friend who is very skincare savvy introduced me to SB, and I've been quietly following them on IG and FB for about a year. The products all looked really interesting, but I had no idea how to get started choosing what to buy and try. (I did the skincare quizzes, but I often doubt whether or not I'm accurately describing my skin and its needs--I'm that much of a skincare amateur!) I had plans to be in Philadelphia last year and was going to stop by to get a few recommendations, but the pandemic shut that down. I finally got up the nerve to buy a few trial products, and while I liked them, I wondered if they were the right ones for me and if I was using them correctly. I ultimately decided to treat myself to a Sip, Shop, Skin class, and I'm really glad I did! Dawn and Adeline were super helpful and thoughtful as they picked out sample they felt would be right for me, and Dawn expertly walked our small group through her own day and night routines as she taught us how to build our own. I learned a lot about the brand, and I got a taste of the SB community at the party. (Folks were kind, and I felt motivated to join a Facebook party the next day to meet other people!) I followed the instructions for the party (wellness drink chilled, warm water bowl with spa packet gathered, washcloths at the ready). I lit a few candles, closed myself off in a room, and just gave the class my all. It may have been the most relaxing hour and a half I've had in a long time. My skin felt great afterwards, and I left feeling more informed and confident about making decisions about what products to buy for myself. My next order is on the way (thanks to the party discount!), and I'm already looking forward to future events.
