A few weeks ago, I went to the International Salon and Spa Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center. It’s a 3 day event where licensed makeup artists, cosmotologists, estheticians and pretty much any one in the personal wellness industry. Estheticians usually aim to go on Sunday and Monday because there’s actually more skincare booths and classes. For the past 2 years now, I’ve been going to the Saturday show mainly because it’s the cheapest day. (Bad I know!)
I went for the first time last year and was there about 3 hours in advance. (You can blame it on misreading the schedule and being sick). I pretty much walked in there and felt so overwhelmed! Just imagine a convention center filled with every type of beauty product booth! Anyways, this year I was prepared and being more social and talkative, I scored so much samples!

There was a post on Instagram where if you reposted a photo and go to a specific booth and I’d get some free stuff
I was given the Color Club Wicked Sweet Nail Polish that is actually scented polish along with 2 mini containers of gold flecks used for nail art.
