Last Friday night, more than 200 Well+Good readers kicked off their weekend at Bloomingdale’s, where Clarins was throwing a party to celebrate the launch of its botanically based Double Serum. (Kiwi and quinoa are both serum ingredients!)
Juice Press was in the house, serving their most popular blends of detoxifying juices. And readers enjoyed mini-treatments and mingling—and the first 50 attendees received Well+Good’s limited edition tote. See the party photos now!

The two explored the botanical and antioxidant ingredients contained in the double serum with Bauer explaining what they do when you ingest them and Truffa explaining what they do when you apply them topically. Yes, you can enjoy quinoa both ways!
