Healthy speed dates

Healthy speed dating? What a great idea. I have never done this before and I must say that I was really looking forward to that evening. Well I’m not talking about dating a guy (obviously, I have the sweetest boyfriend in the world). No, I’m talking about speed dating with the people behind different types of brands. In today’s post I like to tell you all about it. 

Healthy speed dates

The day started hectic and I had to go from Leuven to Antwerp by car which is like HELL. 2 long hours of annoyance and me swearing passed by… I finally arrived at Les Nuits, a hotel in Antwerp, where this healthy speed dating concept was happening. Talking about a fancy place to organize this, right? I was 1 hour to late but I finally made it. Comprendo and Appletree, two public relation agencies combined their forces to make this event happen. Everything was in the details: healthy food and infused water, ‘healthy’ brands… I was impressed. Every few minutes they rang the bell and then your time with the person you were talking to was up. It was as simple as that. Well, I did discover a lot of new brands I hadn’t heard of before.

#1 System Professional

System Professional

This was absolutely the discovery of the day. System Professional has different ranges of products for healthy hair, but you can easily combine products from all the product lines. Every product has a code, by answering the questions on the website you can easily find out your personalized code to find solutions adapted to your situation. You can find the nearest salon on the website.

I chose the helio spray and the hydro repair cream from their solar range which is designed to protect the hair from damage through sun exposure. I must say, the scent is really pleasant.

#2 Biotona


The nice thing about the healthy speed dates is the variety of brands. Healthy means everything: ranging from food or beauty to clothing. I’m really into healthy eating and enjoyed talking with the lady from Biotona. I discovered different superfoods and yummy smoothie recipes.  I will write an entire blogpost about my favourite smoothies from their book, stay tuned.

#3 YUN

Yun Probiotheraphy

My loyal readers probably already know this brand because I wrote an entire post about it.  I’ve been testing the therapy for sensitive skin for about 1 month now and there will be an entire post about my experiences with YUN on the blog.  YUN  strongly believes in effective bacteria to combat bad bacteria.  Our skin is covered by a layer of good bacteria, our microbiome.   Nowadays people are using too much antibiotics to prevent and treat bacterial infections. The biggest problem we face is antibiotic resistance.  At YUN they face this problem, they strongly believe in the use of friendly bacteria to combat the bad ones. I’ll tell you all about my experiences this weekend in a new post.

#4 Nannic


Hygiene is important, they know that @ Nannic. Using deodorant may hide bad smells for a while, but it doesn’t solve your problem.  Well if you’re carrying one of these deo wet wipes with you, you’ll never have that problem again. You’ll feel refreshed!  If your clothes smell bad, you can use the deo textile spray.

You want to get a tan? Nannic’s Epibronze is a bodylotion which gives you that natural glow. Apply this lotion on a daily basis, it absorbs quickly and then you’re ready to go!

there were so many other great brands, I’ll tell about them in a next post. I would like to thank Appletree and Comprendo for the amazing evening.. And ofcourse the people behind all the brands.

    Erg leuk om je eindelijk in levende lijven ontmoet te hebben! Het was voor ons ook de eerste keer dat we meededen aan dit leuke speed date concept van Appletree pr. Echt een heel leuk concept! We vonden het een heel interessante ervaring. Dat gaan we zeker nog een keertje overdoen! =)
