On a sun-drenched summer day in Venice, California, Oak Essentials hosted an unforgettable event celebrating the launch of Renew Face Polish. There were facials, there were florals, and there were fresh loaves of bread for guests to take home from local favorite Gjusta Bakery. Read on for the dreamy details of this ultrachic California occasion.

The Venue

Hosted at Vitorrja in the heart of Venice, the hotel’s laid-back-yet-luxe design was a perfect backdrop for the launch of our new obsession, Renew Face Polish.

Guests were greeted by ice sculptures with Renew Face Polish frozen inside, summery florals arranged by Gjusta, and a thoughtfully curated Spotify playlist celebrating the summer solstice. 

The Facial

The highlight of the event was an exclusive facial, created by our own Global Skincare Ambassador Julia Barna who was in great company with facialists Kayla Renner, Lauren Chung and Laura Fatoorehchi.

Our guests were treated to the luxurious facial experience, which was 15 minutes of cleansing, exfoliation, and deep moisturizing to leave skin looking impossibly glowy and fresh.

The Activations

Kristina Adam of Aether Healing led guests through a summer solstice intention-setting session. Guests were guided to journal in our custom-made Oak Essentials notebooks.

And later on, Anna Kimble—Director of Education at Oak Essentials—educated guests on Renew Face Polish, explaining the benefits of its natural ingredients and how they work together to revitalize and renew the skin.

The Menu

No celebration is complete without a delectable spread—We tapped our friends at Gjusta to create a memorable menu.

This one featured overflowing mezze trays, mini brie toasts, freshly baked cookies, fruit galettes, and mini sourdough loaves for guests to take home. Every bite was delectable to say the least—not to mention, prepared with the intention of boosting an inner-to-outer glow.
