Pampering parties proving popular

The hottest party invitation of the year is the Uber Pamper Party!

Launched just last month in Northern Ireland, Pamper Parties are the newest version of at-home Ann Summers or Tupperware parties, except without the G-strings and sandwich boxes!

The idea behind the parties is that you get a group of between six and nine female friends together, and an Uber skincare consultant comes to your home to demonstrate its range of beauty, hair and tanning products, from face masks to hair repair to fake tan.

Each woman gets the chance to enjoy some one-on-one pampering with a free mini facial — and with the chat and craic, nibbles and drink that goes along with the night, it's the ultimate girly night in.

The Uber consultant explains all about the products, and guests can buy the ones they like at the end of the night.

Uber products come in two different ranges, Uber Sassy for women and Uber Slick for men.

And the products, which cost from around £6-£25, already have a big celebrity following, with the likes of Big Brother's Davina McCall and Coleen McLoughlin both loving the range.

They're aromatherapy-based, so they smell delicious, and are filled with natural ingredients such as manuka honey, grapefruit seed extract and yogurtene, a milk serum that soothes, calms and moisturises.

The Pamper Party idea came about as a way to launch the Uber range, with local entrepreneur Marcus Hunter Neill owning the Uber rights for Belfast and Co Down.

Marcus, a familiar face on TV, became a local celebrity overnight after stealing the show from Noel Edmonds as a contestant on Deal Or No Deal.

He then secured a weekly slot on UTV discussion show L8 + Live and was recently offered his own radio show on Féile FM.
