How I Met The Sun

Hello Everyone!!!

How is the Sunday going??? Mine was okey-dokey . Went shopping in the evening and that is all I did today.But last Sunday was super fun. I attended my second Indimeet - The #Neutrogena Indiblogger Meet.
The meet was organised at JW Marriott Hotel, Juhu in the afternoon to introduce Neutogena's Ultrasheer Sunblock.

The registrations started at around 1:30 pm and this meet unlike the last one had a huge participation with around 150 Bloggers.

We were all given Neutrogena's Deep Whitening Mask to cover our face and relax before the event started . Also they gave us a tiny yellow umbrella witha small strip of paper to write our names and submit it back. Why?? I'll tell that a little later :)

After everyone registered the meet started. It started in the usual Indi-intro style. What is that?? Well the Indimeets are not like the usual bloggers meet - no formal introductions. Instead they come up with crazy ideas, shuffle bloggers and make them run here and there and in the end you get to know the fellow bloggers but in a fun filled way :D.

After the introduction and some more fun activities Mr. Ganesh ( please correct me if I goofed up with the name)  from Neutrogena welcomed us and also introduced us to new Ultrasheer very quickly.

After that came in the tiny yellow umbrellas I told you about in the beginning of the post. We were all asked to pick up one umbrella each and find the blogger whose name was written on it. The task was to find the blogger and get to know about them. Later they called out names randomly and the person who had the umbrella with the names had to tell what they knew about the person. If you know them well. You get prizes. Isn't that cool??

What next??? Indi team won't let you sit just like that :P. So came in the next activity. Everyone was asked to form groups according to the no. of holes in the tiny umbrella we had. Mine had 2 holes and so I went to the table no. 2. We were a group of 25 bloggers - the largest and the best :D. 

Now there were two group activities. The first one was to name our group and also prepare anthem  based on the theme - Fun in the Sun. Every group name was supposed to have "SUN" in it. Since we had a Sardar boy - Ratnadeep, in our group we name our group Sun Of Sardar (Full on filmy :P )  Mrs. Suranga Date wrote down a very catchy Bollywood inspired anthem and Vaisakhi sang it so well that we were declared the winners. Yayyy!!!

The second group activity was an attack - defend game. One team was given UV balls ( There is nothing like UV balls. We were given the smiley balls which they named UV balls :P) while the other team was given umbrellas, some were regular one while the others had holes in them. One team attacked with the ball ( Harmful UV rays) while the other team tried to defend ( the umbrellas with the holes represented regular sunscreen while the full protection was for Neutrogena's Ultrasheer - complete protection) Loved the way they incorporated the concept in a fun filled activity and even more loved throwing balls at the opponent team :P. At the end of the activity the best defending team was declared the winner.

So after so many activities came in tea break. The food was in one word AWESOME. Lip-smacking kebabs, sandwiches, desserts and coffee :)

After the tea break the meet continued. There was a celebrity guest whom we got meet and talk to - the pretty Tara Sharma. She looked gorgeous in the yellow dress. She spoke about her TV show, how she had started blogging ( yes she blogs too), etc etc.

After all this fun was the gyan time. We had a practicing Dermatologist  Dr. Parekh.

He demonstrated using UV sensitive film how Ultrasheer provides complete protection compared to  the other fairness creams and sunscreens in the market. One can clearly see how well Neutogena's  Ultrasheer works.  The Ultrasheer provides complete sun protection against UVA/UVB . It also contains patented Helioplex (it is a broad spectrum formulation for UVA and UVB protection using Avobenzone and Oxybenzone.) that works like an invisible shield to give superior protection. A detailed and complete review would be up soon.

Here are a few important points to be noted when applying sunscreen by Dr. Parekh
  • Only a high SPF is not necessary. The sunscreen should give you complete protection from UVA/UVB.
  • Always apply sunscreen liberally on exposed area 15-30 minutes before heading out in sun
  • Reapply after every 2 hours.
  • Neutrogena's Ultrasheer is safe to use on kids above 3 years of age.
Be sure to to include these when applying sunscreen :)

And with this the event almost came to an end. Yes almost. What is left??? A crazy indiblogger harlem shake video. I won't do much of talking and let the video speak. The official video is not yet but here is a small trailer shot by fellow blogger Pankaja Date.

Leaving you with some more pics :)
