In our experience, hotel toiletries are always either a total hit or a total miss—usually we find ourselves either basking in the miniature wonderland of brands such as Molton Brown or Kiehl's or debating whether or not to let the scary-sounding generic moisture-stripping soap near our skin.
Well. We just heard about the new toiletries upgrade at Hilton Hotels and Resorts and they are definitely a major hit. One of our favorite results-oriented beauty lines, Peter Thomas Roth, has partnered with Hilton to place a spectrum of PTR's newest products—some of them aren't even available to the public yet!—in rooms at over 300 properties (more than 540 locations will have the products by the end of the year).
The products that are available in-room at Hilton Resorts and Hotels are:
· Mega-Rich™ Shampoo: A vitamin-infused shampoo with Biotin B-7 Complex™ and vitamins C, E & pro vitamin B5 for clean, nourished and healthy-looking hair (1 oz.)Currently, staying at a Hilton is the only way to get your hands on PTR's haircare products, which aren't slated for a consumer debut until fall 2011.
· Mega-Rich™ Conditioner: A vitamin-infused conditioner with a mega-luxe Biotin B-7 Complex™ and vitamins C, E & pro vitamin B5 leaves hair soft, smooth and stylish (0.75 oz.)
