Last Friday, I had the pleasure of attending the “10 Days of Beauty” Media Preview event hosted by The Salon at Whole Body in Campbell, CA. (That was a bit of a mouthful!) Prior to this event, I had no idea Whole Foods stores had a dedicated section just for beauty products, let alone an entire salon! Turns out, this salon is the only one in the country, so I felt really special to get to attend their event and check out their salon.
I was enjoying myself way too much to pull out my camera, so I didn’t get that many pictures. Luckily, my friend, Samantha, got some really good snaps and I’m excited to share them with you.
The Salon was beautiful! A partition made of antique window panes separated the salon from the rest of the store for a cozy, but open, atmosphere. They also had the back wall completely covered in real moss. I had to touch it to believe it. The funny thing is, when I turned around to feel the moss for myself, I completely missed the sign right in front of me that read, “No Hands.” My friend and I got a good laugh out of that one. Hence, the photo above.
The team at Whole Foods sure know how to treat a girl to a good day! There was a hair and nail bar for some quick pampering and an abundance of wine and food. We could also get our face scanned by a VISIA machine, which I was all about up until they told me I had to take off my makeup. (I’ll be honest, girl was not down for that!) The VISIA is basically this really cool machine that analyzes your face and tells you the good and bad of it, but we only care about the bad, right?
For my manicure, I chose Zoya’s Sam, the dark red wine color you see above on left. I loved my manicure! It was definitely a no-guilt experience because everything used at The Salon is green and toxin-free. Safe for your hands and safe for the environment. I loved that I wasn’t adding more damage to my nails. I’m definitely going back when I need a good pampering!
I couldn’t leave the store without buying this body scrub because it was amazing! Before we got our manicures, we washed our hands with this scrub and I just loved it. It left my hands feeling really soft and smooth. Each jar is actually individually made in the store. Talk about fresh. I even got a few jars for my friends!
I also left the event with a very generous gift from the Whole Foods team. When I got home and opened my swag bag, I was in shock at all the amazing products I received. I’ve tried a few of these products within this past week, but I especially love Dr. Hauschka’s Cleansing Milk cleanser. It’s made the process of removing makeup actually enjoyable.
I hope you liked this tiny glimpse into the event I attended and if you live in the area, definitely stop by The Salon at Whole Body at least once in your life. Their “10 Days of Beauty” actually started today and will run until February 16.
I can’t end this blog post without giving another thanks to Beth and the Whole Foods Northern California team for having me. I had the best time! Thank you for being so welcoming and friendly.
