Tea with Johnson & Johnson

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Earlier this week, I popped into the Hilton hotel in town to have tea with Johnson & Johnson and take a look at some of the exciting new goodies they’ve just put on the shelves. Viv Ezzey and the peeps from B Line marketing, J&J’s PR company, had laid out quite a spread… 

Yum! Those dates on the left hand side were awesome and I think I flattened every bowl of them that was in the room.

They’d also gotten a l’il creative in using some of their new products to decorate the room. 

Clever, right?

Of all the goodies I was shown, I was quite taken with their new range of deodorants from Shower to Shower. The brand’s got a mod new look and now offers a big selection of fresh-smelling scents.

Shower to Shower Fresh Breeze roll-on has a nice, clean white floral scent and doesn’t look like the ‘old school’ pastel-coloured can that used to get tossed around the PT changing room at school…   

It was also lovely to run into fellow beauty blogger Kerry. Kerry I and, despite smiling in this piccie, are both traumatised due to the news that RoC, another J&J brand, will be discontinued in SA by the end of the year. Apparently the brand didn’t meet local sales expectations, but that’s a real pity because it’s Retinol Correxion line is one of the best wrinkle-busters on the shelves. I’m now going to have to stock up before 2012 and then resort to buying the range online.

Myself and Kerry get comfy on a REALLY big chair.

For more info regarding all of J&J’s exciting new stuff, keep an eye on the site. I’ll be posting about them shortly. We all got given a HUUUGE orange sakkie of beauty loot to take home. Check it out:
