TIFF 2018: Highlights from Suite on the Sixth lounge

L’Oréal Paris

Cinnamon buns, pillows, chocolate, puppy treats, and one of my favorite soap companies. It’s another fantastic year for TIFF lounges, and, as usual, the Suite on the Sixth is one of my go-to favorites.

And really, what’s not to love? The lounge, held in rock-it promotions’ office, is a celebration of so many great ideas, great products, and fun brands.

This year, highlights from the lounge included Casper, L’Oréal Paris, Perth Soap Co., BOGS, SimplyProtein, Lindt, adidas, and charitable partner, Leave Out Violence (LOVE). For every signature the Suite on the Sixth receives, they’re going to donate $50 to the charity.

Everything at the lounge was fantastic, but it was especially great to see my favorite soap brand, who was back for a second year at SOT6, back with new products and scents. I’ve been using Perth Soap Co. products for the last year, and I’ve never looked back. It was their products that made me realize that I’m ready to go bottle-free, so I can ditch all of the plastic containers, and I love their soaps and lotions.

This year, a few of my favorite featured scents included Sparkling Champagne Cleansing Oil, plus Milk & Honey, Moroccan Spice, and Neroli & Sea Salt bar soaps.

Casper has been my mattress of choice for a few years now, but discovering their pillows at the suite was kind of exciting. After all, let’s be honest; we spend about 8 hours a day on our beds and pillows, so they need to be pretty good, and the Casper pillow is very impressive. It’s soft, but supporting, and you can even open it up to wash the outside, or separately use the smaller pillow that’s inside the outer lining.

L’Oréal Paris showed off their latest makeup, and with a little help I picked up some treats for my lady, including True Match Glotion, Infallible Eye Shadow, and some Colour Riche Shine in a gorgeous Glassy Garnet. The Garnet really pops, and it’s a colour I know my wife loves, but it’s also a definite red carpet colour too.

Plus, I have to give a big shout out to BOGS, and their incredible boots, SimplyProtein for the delicious snacks, my favorite chocolate maker, Lindt, who gave out a lot of treats, and adidas.

The #SOT6 lounge runs from September 5 to 8, and is by appointment only for stars and icons at TIFF.
