We’ve seen a lot of launch events here at MissMalini, but one of the most fun ones we’ve been to recently was the Pond’s Men with the super cute Varun Dhawan! The event kicked off with a bunch of bloggers gathering under one roof to play everyone’s favourite games – foosball, air hockey, Wii, Motocross Go, the works. As you can imagine, everyone was totally into it – especially since most of us had downed Espresso Martinis, a killer combination of coffee and alcohol that had us all super charged. Clearly, Pond’s took their #GetRecharged promise seriously, and we were all raring to go even after a day’s worth of work.
I ended up challenging MissMalini to a game of air hockey, which she very efficiently played while balancing the aforementioned martini in hand. We tied, but that was only because Miss M played dirty – she took advantage of my fangirlyness by saying, “Rashmi, look, Varun’s here!” and scored a goal while I whipped my head around to check.
The good news is that we did get to see Varun soon after. Post all our fun and games, we headed for the press conference, which opened with a hilarious stand up comedy act by none other than Sorabh Pant (he said he felt like Falguni Pathak opening for Pink Floyd).
Then, Varun came in and introduced us to the new Pond’s Men skincare range, in particular their Energy Charge facewash.
“My skin has to go through a lot during a regular work day – since most of my time is spent outdoors in dusty environments. So a good face wash that can refresh my skin instantly is almost indispensable to me. I love the new Pond’s Men range of facewashes and moisturizers because they are an effective and no-fuss solution to my skin needs. Pond’s is amongst the most reputed skincare brands in the world. It is exciting to be the face of this product range for men.”
MissMalini also asked him to take a selfie while on stage, and he obliged by taking her phone and clicking away. We then stopped to chat with him for a minute (and he took the opportunity to comment that we’re the only team with pink cameras), before he had to head off for interviews. Ranjit from our team interviewed him at this event, so make sure you check out their quick chat here as well!
All in all, it was a super event. Good food, fun games, and the adorable Varun… what more could we ask for to #GetRecharged on a Thursday evening?! :)
