The 90th annual Academy Awards was truly unforgettable. There were many highlights at this year’s extraordinary, star-studded award show, however, some of the most memorable moments not only happened during the Oscars but before it too. TMG and CIREM Cosmetics’ outstanding pre-Oscars gifting suite was definitely the talk of the town leading up to the prestigious Academy Awards as the marvelous gifting suite celebrated spectacular brands and vendors and pampered attendees before the big day.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to attend a pre-Oscars gifting suite? Well, wonder no more! I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest honor of being invited to attend TMG and CIREM Cosmetics’ pre-Oscars gifting suite and it definitely was one luxurious day. Join me as I show you what my fun day was like – from getting my makeup done to getting so many fantastic goodies and beyond!
My day started off with a wonderful facial from CIREM Cosmetics. This remarkable, beauty product brand is known for bringing out some of the most awe-inspiring and breathtakingly beautiful results. CIREM’s first product that was released was its “3-In-1 Serum” which contains Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C and Retinol. The results from using CIREM products are mind-blowing. The way that CIREM’s products rejuvenate your skin and help bring about fresh and new skin cells is unlike any other product you have used before.
When I got my facial using CIREM products, I felt like a new person. My skin felt so smooth and my face looked so much more luminous and it was glowing. CIREM cosmetics are the perfect thing to use before a big event, an exciting day like a wedding or a prom, or just when you want to go around town and embrace your bare face. Even the CIREM bottles and containers are so classy and elegant and the packaging reflects their brand so well. One of my fave products from CIREM is the skin jewel that not only makes your skin feel great but it also is a fantastic thing to use when you want to treat yourself to a nice facial massage.

Next stop: getting my nails done by TNL – The Nail Lounge. Using a terrific OPI nail-polish and getting to take a bottle home, I was able to get a marvelous manicure that I absolutely adore. The Nail Lounge, located on Santa Monica Boulevard, is definitely a go-to spot to get your nails done. Following my manicure, I had a brilliant time getting my hair done by Ouidad. The magnificent hairstylists at Ouidad did such a lovely job giving me red-carpet ready curls. Needless to say, I was in love with their work and their hair products are just as excellent. If you want to get your hair curled, there is no other place to go to other than Ouidad as the brand and salon is known for being the “curl experts.” Whether you want loose curls or tight ones, there are many products that you will love. If you want to get your hair done all fancy, you need to check out one of Ouidad’s salons located in New York City, Santa Monica, and Fort Lauderdale. For more on Ouidad, visit here.
Hair done – check. Nails done – check. Only thing left: MAKEUP!!! My fabulous and dazzling makeup was done by Maria Angelic Korompis at Ginny Cosmetics. I was speechless with my excellent, smokey-eye look and it was the perfect finishing touch to my lavish day. Ginny Cosmetics uses natural skincare and no animal testing. These products are definitely a must-have for all beauty lovers! Get your products from Ginny Cosmetics here.
