Sanctum Body Therapy VIP Event & La Clinica Giveaway!

What a fantastic weekend we had in Melbourne recently. I wanted to do a Stalk my Weekend post but I got tied up with a Claw post. I'll catch up one day.. as I now have more exciting news. I have a GIVEAWAY!

Anyway, on to the great news. I had received a Sanctum Body Therapy invite to a VIP event and to experience a Glycolic C 15% peel. I asked Ling from The Best Beauty Blog if she was available to attend with me. I love being able to return a +1 favour to an event.

Product Shelving at Sanctum
Sanctum is an exclusive stockist of La Clinica products and only uses their certified organic products for your facial and body beauty treatments. They also stock Jane Iredale makeup and Tuscan Tan products. The last time I had visited them for the signature facial - please make sure you book this in if you visit them. They were in the old salon in Bullen. So check out their beautiful new home in Templestowe. The new salon is at 2/132 James Street, Templestowe.

Nail stations filled with yummy finger food and champers
The salon is divided into sections. There are 4 nail stations now compared to the 2 that they had in the old salon. To the left of the reception desk when you enter is a the 3 IPL, spray tanning and waxing rooms. On the left are the product displays shelves and waiting area.

Hallway to Beauty or "Quiet" treatment rooms
And the above is a sort of tucked away hallway where the 3 quiet treatment rooms are located. The ladies have kept the decor to minimum, dark grey in the hallway but bright and white in the treatment rooms. Happy to report that I was not red after the treatment and do not require a bee keeper hat like Samantha from Sex and the City. It was a gentle treatment as the Glycolic Acid 15% peel active ingredient is derived from sugar cane. Cost of this peel is $52 or $208 for course of 5 (1 is free), it is recommended that you have one peel each week for 5 weeks.

Giveaway: La Clinica Clear Skin Kit
So this brings me to the La Clinica Clear Skin Kit giveaway! :) Yayyyy... Winning!

I received a Clear Skin pack from Rita-Marie at La Clinica when we were discussing the Clear Skin MultiFruit Acid serum. You know how I love my serums right? So I thought it would suit my makeup/skincare BFF at work. She had bad pimples and bumps under her skin were visible under makeup, her skin was red and 'angry' as she calls it. She used the pack I gave her twice and bought her own. Retail price for this pack is $80! Yeap everyone you read correctly. Every single item in this range is only $20.

The Kit Includes:
Clear Skin Anti Blemish Face Wash Gel - 200mL
Clear Skin Intensive Spot Serum - 50mL
Clear Skin Intensive Oil Control Day Cream - 50mL
Clear Skin Intensive Oil Control Night Gel - 50mL
Clear Skin Anti Blemish Exfoliating Scrub - 100mL
Clear Skin Anti Blemish Facial Mask - 100mL
La Clinica Facial Cloth
La Clinica zip lock toiletry bag 

TO WIN: Email me at porkchopsnest@gmail.com and tell me what your skin type is and why you want to try this kit. Competition closes on Friday 26th October midnight Melbourne time and I will announce the winner here on this post. 

Conditions: Open to Australian Residents only, decisions are final and are judged by myself, winner is not drawn at random but is based on the answer they provide. Winner has 1 week to respond to me on their mailing address.


This giveaway has ended and the recipient is Shaunnagh. There were a few entries that sounded like they really needed this pack and the decision was really difficult. This is an extract of Shaunnagh's entry. 

"My usual skin care routine involves cleansing with a mild cleanser and using high strength Benzac AC Cream in thick layers at night to keep my skin "exfoliated" and clear. I long to be able to use products like Aesop etc that smell amazing and make you feel pampered but they don't work for me. If I do break from my usual routine for a couple of days, my skin reacts.
I used Proactive for a few years but found it really harsh on my skin and it took 12 months for my skin to recover after I stopped using it. It would be great to try out a new product line that would work for my skin type as well as make me feel a million bucks."  

I am hoping that the La Clinica Clear Skin pack will help you.


  1. Darn, I think my skin type is too dry for that stuff. At least it has been since I moved to Melbourne anyway!
