Last night, I attended Proctor & Gamble’s “Have You Tried This Yet” media event right here in Miami, along with PR professionals, bloggers, and other media — like Stacie from The Divine Miss Mommy (who invited me along), Desiree from Bottles to Britches, Rosy from Accidental Sexiness, Susset from Miami Beats & Sazon, Stefanie from Mommy Musings, and Alicia from The Mommy Insider!
“Have You Tried This Yet” is a P&G Pop Up Event in South Beach this week featuring dozens of P&G brands. Shoppers can stop in and try out or learn about all of the different products. This multi-faceted program is designed to showcase high-performing products with benefits that help consumers (such as busy moms like us!!) meet everyday needs.
My favorite part of the experience (well, aside from meeting so many great new people) was the makeup trial I had with COVERGIRL. Makeup artist extraordinare, Aradia, helped me out by showing off COVERGIRL’s new Lashblast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara. Unlike other mascara I’ve tried, the Lashblast actually goes on really light, and it truly is volumizing. I swear my lashes looked longer! I also enjoyed learning more about Tide with Actilift (since I’m a Tide user) and can’t wait to try out the new Swiffer that I received!
If you’re a P&G fan like I am, you should check out P&G’s brandSAVER in your coupon section. It’s a coupon booklet with crazy awesome savings on your favorite P&G products! I always clip my brandSAVER to pieces because there are SO many fantastic coupons and savings for so many products that I use all the time! You can register online to receive the savings, as well.
Miami friends, check it out this week!
The free, interactive P&G experience is located at 843 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach (in the Lincoln Road Mall) and will be open from Sunday – Thursday, 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. and Friday – Saturday, 11:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. and will offer free demonstrations and product samples from brands such as Pantene, Oral-B, Gillette, Downy, Swiffer, COVERGIRL, and Puffs, allowing consumers to experience first-hand the innovations each product offers. Check out more information here on P&G’s Have You Tried This Yet Campaign!
Here are some photos I took. For the photo-curious, I shot some images with my Point & Shoot, the Canon G11, and some images with my professional camera, the Canon 5D.
Clockwise from the top — Stacie from The Divine Miss Mommy after having her hair done by Pantene & makeup by COVERGIRL, a shot of the COVERGIRL counter with bloggers getting their makeup done, Rosy from Accidental Sexiness (two shots- one is of her getting her eye makeup done), Stefanie from Mommy Musings, palm trees, and finally a shot of some Tide with ActiLift & Downy and an arm’s length self-portrait of myself after having some COVERGIRL lipgloss and blush applied at the makeup counter.
Thanks P&G and Stacie! I had a great time learning more about P&G and its products!
