Press Pass LA attended the annual GBK & Pilot Pen Golden Globe Luxury Suites in honor of the upcoming Golden Globe Awards. With over 4 different rooms and hundreds of products, we narrowed it down to our favorites here!

I love awards season; the red carpets, the speeches, the gifting lounges! It is a special time of year in Hollywood where the top talent is honored, pampered, and celebrated and as media, I am lucky to get an exclusive look at all the fan fair. Here were my favorites:

GBK Golden Globes LoungeFashion & Accessories

The Artisan Group– gifts the celebrities a lovely collection of trendy jewelry, spa and bath products, perfumes, nail polishes, clutches, fine art photography, candles, stationery, and other handcrafted gifts. This is by far our favorite bag at the lounge!

Hale Bob – gifted these beautiful scarves that were shades of purples & pinks. I will definitely be using it during the colder days in LA. Hale Bob dresses modern, fashion-forward women in feminine, chic and distinctive clothing. Their fashions are created from the highest quality fabrics and they are recognized for their exclusive, colorful prints.

Jewelinx – This little piece was probably one of the most functional things we received. It was a jewelry organizer that allows you to organize your Jewelry and Accessories on a hanger with your outfit. I’m that person who matches all her shirts to necklaces etc. but they are always somewhere tangled in my jewelry box so this was PERFECT for me!

Beauty & Skin Care340263450,4545A135500298708E8

Burke Williams Spa is always there giving away products from their exclusive in-spa skin care line, H2V along with 3-Day Spa Passes that welcome guests to enjoy the spa amenities on 3 separate occasions. Who doesn’t love going to the Spa?? I think I’ll book myself a nice little massage for Valentine’s Day!

LifeCell – LifeCell is an All-In-One anti-aging treatment is a product formulated to target every aspect of aging skin. We received their LifeCell Cooling Under Eye Treatment, for those long work days and even longer nights filled events!! This will get rid of those bags in no time. Its skin-strengthening ingredients, Vitamin C Ester, DMAE, and Retinol, work immediately and over time to smooth and brighten the eye area. Its ultra-cooling metal applicator refreshes and reduces puffiness. Easy to take anywhere.

Shhh Silk – The Celebs received luxury silk pillowcases and their founder told us that silk helps prevent wrinkles if use silk pillows daily.  I can’t wait to order one!

Tweezerman – The only tweezer for those bushy brows!  They now also carry  an array of make-up applicators.  I received the foundation brushes and I have to say it’s definitely a favorite of all my make-up tools. My foundation just glides on so smooth and evenly with this brush! Celebrity guests also received tweezers and a makeup brush engraved with their name.

Reisa Parfum– Every girl needs a signature scent! I tried Reisa, the first fragrance from LA based Truly Yours and well, fell in love. I even got the chance to talk to founder Sheba Grobstein about her passion for creating this scent and her companies mission for social good.


The Creative Coalition– The Creative Coalition was formed for the charitable and educational purposes of bringing together artists and entertainers to learn about pressing issues so they can better inform and influence the community and nation.

Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation- The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation was launched by boxing legend and six-time world champion Sugar Ray Leonard to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research. The mission of the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation (SRLF) is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. After watching his father struggle with Diabetes and its complications for years, Ray is very passionate about finding a cure for Juvenile Diabetes.
