After spending a week as guest bloggers for the rapidly-growing Birchbox, The Road Tested were invited to attend a Birchbox & Caudalie Spa event at the Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza last week. With Natalie out nailing her final interview for her new position at Elie Tahari (applause!) Chondra brought TRT's pal and proprietor of the delicious online bakery Eat Sweet, Abigail Stever along for some mid-Summer pampering...and a double road test of Covergirl Outlast Lipstain & Napoleon Auto Pilot Lip Service lip primer.
There were french macaroons. There was girl talk between TRT and Caudalie-owner Mathilde Thomas who shared her love of wine (which she generously provided from Caudalie's personal reserve for the event and lies at the heart of all the brand's anti-aging magic.) There was brow clean-up and manicures and gushing to Katia Beauchamp of Birchbox about our obsession with the sample-saavy company she co-founded. And there was also the question of whether our road tested products would make it through the event. Find out in the vid, then if you aren't already subscribing to Birchbox, do it now and get 20% off a "friendship" spa day at Caudalie Vinotherapie through Sept. 15 AND a complimentary glass of Rose on check-in (Trust us. It's deliciousness knows no bounds.)
