When I joined Mockingbird Heights A Salon I was introduced to Image Skincare. I had used numerous products in the past and was excited to learn about another option. Throughout the years I have attended classes, been a hostess for Image Skincare products at the salon and have truly enjoyed watching my clients transform with this technology. Last Monday Jenny and I also had the pleasure of attending the Image Skincare Launch Party.
I signed up for the Launch Party during February’s training of Image Skincare. I quickly texted Jenny asking her to join me for the event, and told her to be ready in her cocktail/ evening gown apparel because we were going out for the night. I have used this line for three years, but have never had the opportunity to attend the launch, which showcases all the year’s new products. Once I left February’s class I headed to Nordstrom’s and found the perfect evening gown, which was on sale and miraculously didn’t need alterations due to my 5’1 height. It was a sign, this year I would be attending the event and I would be dragging Jenny along with me.
As soon as I picked up Jenny I began worrying about my outfit. My paranoia was getting the best of me and I didn’t want us showing up overdressed. However, my worries were unfounded as we walked in to a sea of black evening apparel. We picked up some wine, found seating and waited for the unveiling of new products.
There was a lot to go over starting with some background on the company, the science of the products and the goals the company is striving to attain. Image Skincare stands out to me because they are constantly researching, re-formulating and looking to improve their products. I have tried many different products throughout the years and have never gotten the consistent long-term results with any other line. I have also never received the standard of training with any other company.
Every month Image Skincare offers a local training for their accounts to attend. I admit after my initial training, I was not committed to consistently attending monthly classes due to my busy life as a mom. This past year I was able to attend more classes and it has truly made a difference. I feel confident trying new products on clients, intensifying facials and recommending products that will truly create change to the skin.
During the Launch Image Skincare presents estheticians and salons with awards. As this portion of the night started I whispered to Jenny that I was frustrated because I had missed two of my certifications classes, so I was not eligible. I took out my order form and began reading over things when I felt a jab in my side. I looked at Jenny like she was crazy and sat there very puzzled. Jenny with a smile on her face authoritatively told me to go up and get my award. I continued to look at her as though she was crazy and she kept saying, “Go up there! Look at the screen! Jacqueline is waiting!” At this point I looked at the screen and my name was written up there with several others receiving recognition. I put on my best smile, walked up there as though I was fully aware of what was happening, accepted my recognition and posed for photos. At this point I realized I also brought the paparazzi with me as my date. Jenny was out of her seat with her phone taking photos alongside the hired photographer. I’m not quite sure what transpired between the two, but I do believe they both were able to capture their shot. I would attend that event a hundred times just to see Jenny snapping photos.
After all the excitement we settled in for an evening of product announcements. Image is launching numerous masques, a new pink lip complex, a luxuriously hydrating lotion and new professional peels. I have been experimenting this week with the tester masques that were given to us in our “goodie bags” and I absolutely love them. I cannot wait to be fully trained and ready to share them with all of you. For now, I am impatiently waiting for my box of new products to arrive on my doorstep.
