On Saturday, August 20, guests from across the beauty industry gathered in Montauk for a special dinner to celebrate The Surf Lodge x Dermstore collaboration: a summer selection of skincare and beauty products and an interactive health experience and well-being which will run until September 20.
As participants filtered through the surf lodges a private seaside location, they were greeted by a dreamy display – a rustic wooden table adorned with lit candles and vibrant roses that matched the hue of the setting sun, and of course, an array of woven raffia bags filled with Dermstore treats. The mood of the evening was refreshing, as exciting conversations easily unfolded between old friends and new acquaintances.
The evening began with platters chosen from the classic Surf Lodge menu, including flat iron steak served with chips, burrata and toast, yellowfin tuna over crispy rice and more delicious entrees, all accompanied by bespoke cocktails and an assortment of wines. Among the group of attendees seated at the table were the hosts of the evening, Wellness Curator Dria Murphy and The Surf Lodge Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Jayma Cardoso.
Cardoso helped cultivate the collaboration with Dermstore, making it the official beauty partner of The Surf Lodge and bringing an interactive experience to life. Within the Surf Lodge, there is a quaint pop-up shop just off the main lobby that features an exclusive collection of Dermstore essentials displayed throughout the shop. Weekend guests also receive a free “Best of Dermstore” essentials bundle that includes products from Sunday Riley, ILIA, EltaMD, SkinCeuticals, and more. And, for those who cannot travel to the east, personalized curation has been made available for shopping on the Dermastore website.
Overall, the sought-after Montauk resort destination, known for its lively concert series, coveted suites and unforgettable dining experience, is embracing the world of beauty and fostering a community that puts self-care first.
