A complimentary press trip to Curaçao was made possible by Benchmark Resorts & Hotels which represents Santa Barbara Resort. OLIKA is compensating me for promotion of ‘Birdie’.
I’d never been to Curaçao, so when Benchmark Resorts & Hotels asked if I’d like to visit to review Santa Barbara Resort I thought it was a good opportunity to get insight into a country I’d always wondered about. When I was invited to experience a brand new product, ‘Birdie’ by OLIKA, this summer – I thought Curaçao as a destination would be perfect for a photo story in a country where surely the ocean would match the gorgeous color of this product.
I was not wrong there! Birdie matched the ocean, my beach bag, my sunglass case and basically everything I knew and loved during my trip! Birdie is a hand sanitizer and kudos to OLIKA for knowing that this is one of the things I religiously carry when I travel. From picking up things on the seashore to running my hands through every texture I can, to really get the feel of a place — my hands always need a little cleaning. I think I am a kid at heart who still explores through touch first and then through sight when I am traveling! With my new 2-in- 1 feathered friend, I never worried about what germs I might be picking up as I did so and I was always prepared to get clean with both a spray and wipes.
About Birdie from OLIKA:
Named “The World’s Most Beautiful Hand Sanitizer,” by Fast Company, Birdie marries form and function to create a delightful consumer experience as a nature-inspired and inherently different by design personal care solution. Birdie contains the cleaning power of a hand sanitizing spray, which includes 20mL of soothing essential oils and nourishing aloe vera leaf juice, while housing ten textured dry wipes to capture dirt and grime in his base. Complemented by the intrinsic beauty of minimalist Scandinavian design, the first-of-its-kind hand sanitizer spray from OLIKA offers both a unique and refreshing personal care experience. Birdie boasts a simple signature fragrance with a sophisticated blend of aromatic notes inspired by nature, including aloe vera leaf juice and the essential oils of bergamot, lemon and spearmint. Standing at 3×2 inches and complete with a locking mechanism, OLIKA’s “feathered friend” is an ideal travel size. Birdie retails online for $8.99 and is available in three colors: Robin’s Egg, Charcoal and Eggshell. [source: OLIKA]
Coincidentally, Aloe is one of the primary products Curaçao produces and exports. Is there aloe from Curaçao in Birdie? I don’t know! But I thought that fact was a fun one!
