VocalPoint RSVP Orgullosa Event

DSCN0956

I hosted another wonderful event for VocalPoint’s RSVP division and like always, they were very generous with samples for my guests. I invited 12 people and 11 attended my event. They send products for about 8 to 9 guests but because I invite mostly couples, this always works out great for us. Unfortunately, one friend showed up without her partner because he was ill.

The party was focused around Traditions and the Holidays. I made wonderful desserts because it’s a great way to keep my guests fed and happy. The sugar helps keep them motivated too!

At this event, we received 9 re-usable shopping bags with the Orgullosa logo, black in color, and I used these to give guests their samples. Now, here comes the goodies list that guests received:

  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (Original)
  • Puffs Ultra Soft and Strong tissue packs
  • Tide Pods
  • Downy Unstoppables in-wash scent booster in Shimmer (pink)
  • Gain in Original scent
  • Money Saving coupons

Items I was able to share and feature also included:

  • Swiffer Sweeper 2-in-1 Sweeping & Mopping Starter Kit
  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Original with Sponge (has a blue sponge-like backing)
  • Olay’s Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo (Medium to Coarse Hair)

I made a wonderful Cranberry-Apple Crisp that is a family tradition in our home but also made a basic pecan pie. I figured the best part of traditions are about making new ones, so I also got adventurous and made a bittersweet chocolate and pecan pie that ended up being the favorite. I included recipes for everyone so they can share with their families. My event was held on the 17th of November, so I brought a little touch of Thanksgiving and made mini cookies for guests to munch on. Having themed cookie cutters are always a nice way to add that holiday touch but an easy way to make a pie look more festive!

The hit of the party was the product all the girls had seen in store but had not tried, the Olay Facial Hair remover. The duo comes from having a “pre-treatment” that is applied and this safeguards your skin from irritation. The box treats up to 12 applications, so a little goes a long way. You apply the pre-treatment that comes almost in a lip balm shape (you even twist it up and apply). You rub in the balm for about 20 seconds and to make sure your skin is protected. Don’t over apply to hair you want removed because it will counter the removal. You then simply apply the treatment that smells less toxic than any other Hair removal cream I have used. You do not rub the second product in, you just gently apply and we found it was best to pat on. You leave it on for 6 to 8 minutes, with 10 minutes being the maximum. The results were mixed since I did have 4 guests use it and we even got one guy to try it on very fine back hair (just small patches). The skin guarding balm works excellent and this is something we all 100% agreed with but maybe it works too well. If you maybe get a little more balm by the root of the hair you want removed, it tends to stop the removal process right there and leaves you a stubble like hair at the end. I think practice will make the process better but even though most used it on fine hair, the medium to coarse hair formula did not remove that well. I would state after surveying the guests that tried it, 75% were happy with the results and the one male that we influenced to try was 100% happy because it worked perfectly on his back. This lead me to believe that because the face (upper lip) is curved, the balm needs to be applied well, meaning make sure to rub it in so you do not get build-up. At least I got a male fan now, though!

The second Proctor and Gamble product to get great reviews, the Downy Unstoppables. I kindly asked that my guests text me, e-mail, or call me just let me know quickly if you like it or not. Everyone loved them! These little add-ins leave your towels and sheets smelling fresher longer. I had two guests purchase the product but in the Lavender colored scent called Lush, and three others in the Teal colored scent called Fresh. I was so happy with the Unstoppables that I purchased one scent for the towels and a second scent for the sheets. What I like best, you control how much or little of a scent boost you want and the product works like described. A little goes a long way so that is always a major plus for me when it comes to Household products.

The Third winner was the Magic Erasers (both original and the duo one with the sponge). We all love them from cleaning the bathroom, to even the build up (scale) I get by the water dispenser in the fridge. There is really nothing these little guys do not brighten and even made a white colored Christmas decoration look like new after I used an eraser on it. It even removed the yellowing from years of displaying. I shared my tip on how I use a razor to cut the eraser to customize the size I need. This avoids any waste and helps me get to places where a full sized eraser would be awkward. Great to use on the door rails for the shower because you can cut to fit! Makes my erasers last longer too!

I love having these parties and VocalPoint even provides you with conversation cards. These parties are never dull and my guests love getting new items to try out. The coupons are generous as well, so it’s a win-win for everyone. Thank you again VocalPoint for another great event!
