  • (upbeat music)

  • - My gosh, this is like the best summer camp of my life.

  • Holy cow.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Hello, everyone.

  • We made it to the very beautiful Sonora Island.

  • We're here in Canada, and I am here with La Mer.

  • They have partnered with us for this video.

  • And it is so gorgeous here.

  • We're at Sonoro Island.

  • It's both of our first times here.

  • And we're just soaking it in.

  • We're waiting for our bags to come in,

  • because there are lots of forest fires happening right now,

  • which is very unfortunate.

  • But this is so gorgeous, you guys.

  • I freaking love it here.

  • - Yeah, it's amazing here.

  • Especially the fact that we got married a few days ago.

  • You know, it was unbelievable that we had

  • a lot of friends and family,

  • and it's a lot to do, so coming somewhere like this,

  • where it's so peaceful and relaxing, it's amazing.

  • - First thing on the agenda is the welcome dinner.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Good morning, everyone.

  • It is a beautiful day here in British Columbia.

  • I am in the same clothes as I was yesterday

  • because unfortunately, the fires are so bad

  • that they weren't able to bring our bags

  • because it's so smoky.

  • So what had happened was, when we landed in Vancouver,

  • we took a separate helicopter to Sonora Island.

  • And our bags were just there because there was

  • supposed to be another aircraft, but.

  • One of my carry-ons managed to sneak in,

  • and so that one had underwear and makeup,

  • so that's why I was able to do this face.

  • Over here, we had a really great breakfast

  • with Alex and Victoria, they just got engaged

  • and I'm so, so happy for them.

  • We're all part of the married crew,

  • and yeah, we had a really great breakfast.

  • Yay, the bags are officially here.

  • Ooh, they have been on a journey.

  • So I'm just gonna quickly get changed into

  • our little boat outfit, and I'll talk to you guys in a bit.

  • (upbeat music)

  • All right, we just made it on the little boat,

  • and now it's gonna take us to a bigger boat.

  • But yeah, we're about to go and see

  • the kelp harvest activation, very excited to see

  • how they make their Miracle Broth.

  • - Oh, that's gonna be good.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Jenn] We've arrived on the yacht.

  • Got these beautiful women having La Mer cream, wow.

  • - [Woman] Would you like one?

  • - [Jenn] Yes, absolutely, thank you.

  • - [Ben] Even I want one.

  • - [Woman] Of course.

  • - Of course, I go straight to the food.

  • Ben goes straight to the bar.

  • We've got a no-shoe policy over here because

  • the floors should remain immaculate.

  • (upbeat music)

  • We have parked the yacht,

  • and now we're looking at the people harvest the kelp.

  • Right over,

  • right over there.

  • Thank you.

  • - It's also known as a giant kelp.

  • - Look, it's kelp.

  • These algae in the kelp are what lock in the moisture.

  • So this is in the Miracle Broth,

  • which is in all the La Mer creams.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Ben] Now you see the real beauty, huh?

  • - Yeah, I'm getting a great angle right here.

  • - [Ben] What are we doing now, babe?

  • - We are heading back to port

  • after a beautiful time on the yacht.

  • Lots of food, lots of knowledge about

  • the kelp and all of these amazing properties.

  • So, yeah, I'll tell you guys more when we get back.

  • Oh my God, who's that?

  • - [Ben] What a great welcome back.

  • - Oh my God, he's like the Homeward Bound dog.

  • (upbeat music)

  • That was such a fun yacht day.

  • We learned so much, it was very informative.

  • We learned all the amazing benefits of kelp.

  • Do you have the prop, babe?

  • Oh I do, managed to sneak a bit of kelp back.

  • The more I realize how precious it is,

  • thought I'd get a bit of kelp here.

  • - Oh wow, nice.

  • - You can't tell here, but the material

  • is just, it's just divine.

  • - Are you eating it?

  • Is it good?

  • - It's supposed to be good, it's just the best nutrition.

  • - So we're predicting that this is

  • gonna be the next super food.

  • And so this is, like, probably the main ingredient

  • in the Miracle Broth,

  • and obviously there's a lot more that goes into it.

  • They grind it up, they ferment it, it is incredible.

  • - It's ridiculous.

  • - Yeah, so, it's great for the skin.

  • And the person that created this, his name is Max.

  • I'll leave his last name here,

  • but he was working in a lab, and basically 75%

  • of his face got burned off,

  • so he looked to the sea to find a solution.

  • And he found that this kelp really helped transform

  • and heal his skin.

  • And so his story is just very inspiring,

  • and it's something that we can all benefit from,

  • which is amazing.

  • I have a facial in an hour, so I'm very excited

  • for that as well, and Ben is gonna fly his drone.

  • Goodness, so I came home to a lovely present.

  • Let's open this, from Max Huber,

  • who created this formula.

  • This looks very very modern.

  • Even though it's technically vintage.

  • Oh, I love this packaging.

  • Oh, oh my God, is this a?

  • Wait a minute, I'm gonna wear this on my hike tomorrow.

  • - [Ben] Yeah.

  • - [Jenn] This is so sick.

  • - [Ben] Im, in case you didn't know

  • what your surname used to be.

  • - Oh I know, Im Jolliffe.

  • Okay, so I just got dropped off.

  • I'm at the Sea Lion Lodge.

  • I'm about to have a facial.

  • I quickly just removed all of my makeup

  • because I wanna make sure that the esthetician

  • has a good base to work with.

  • So I'm gonna change into my robes over here.

  • These are all the products she's gonna put on my face.

  • Ooh, I'm excited.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Hello, everyone, it is supper time.

  • And we've got a lovely little corner table

  • with a gorgeous view.

  • - This whole place is just so serene and so peaceful.

  • It's just, it's great, we're having such a good time.

  • And tomorrow we've gotta get up early for our hike.

  • - Yeah, morning hike.

  • - Yeah, and then we've got an eco-tour.

  • Apparently, a guy saw a couple of whales today.

  • Loads of sea lions, some more eagles.

  • - I have to say that I had the best facial of my life today.

  • - She keeps going on about it, I didn't get one.

  • - It's okay, it's okay.

  • Next time.

  • But it was incredible.

  • Janae was so careful with my face, and I put some makeup on

  • because I wanted to get some shots and make use

  • of this gorgeous backdrop.

  • But, girl, the facial was amazing.

  • I never wanted it to end.

  • I was getting drone shots of the sea lions,

  • and the resort, and it's cleared up a lot now,

  • because obviously the smoke made everything very,

  • you couldn't really see much.

  • So like, I think the winds are shifting,

  • so you get to see the mountains now.

  • - I think a lot of the fires are being put out, too,

  • which is great.

  • The firefighters are working so hard,

  • and risking their lives.

  • - Yeah, there's like 600 fires going on,

  • which is just crazy.

  • It's really sad to see, but yeah,

  • seems like everyone's doing their thing.

  • We feel safe, obviously, which is good.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Good morning, everyone.

  • It is almost eight a.m.

  • We're about to do our morning hike, with the team.

  • We're very excited.

  • We're gonna go see a little viewpoint,

  • then check out some water and then come back down.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Ben] How you feeling, babe, tired yet?

  • - No, not at all.

  • This is actually really great.

  • It reminds me of hiking in Oakland or San Francisco.

  • Great air quality, beautiful, everywhere.

  • - [Guide] Thimbleberries, these are like

  • the wild raspberries.

  • You can eat these, they're a little dried out.

  • - Really, ooh.

  • Sure, thimbleberry.

  • Mmm, they're really nice, hmm-mm.

  • I feel like I'm in a Mer comic book right now.

  • So cool.

  • (upbeat music)

  • All right, we made it to the top,

  • or one of the tops of the mountains.

  • We're on this nice little wooden platform,

  • and we're looking at the view.

  • - Lovely. - So gorgeous.

  • - We went pretty high, didn't we?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Good job, guys. - Yeah, good job.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Ben] We did it.

  • - We did it, we just finished our hike,

  • and now we're having some breakfast.

  • I went for some lox on Ciabbatta bread,

  • and some roasted potatoes.

  • - I'm having a second breakfast.

  • We did a, what, two-mile hike, and

  • you know, I get some French toast

  • and some berries and all that.

  • Oh hello there, guys, I've stolen Jenn's camera.

  • Jenn is doing a testimonial for La Mer right now,

  • so me and my boy Alex, there he is,

  • we're going for a little bike ride to Sea Lion Cove.

  • This is where we get lost, and this might be

  • the last time you see of us, but we're having a lovely time.

  • You know, when we're out here, a lot of our job,

  • we're making sure the girls are good,

  • getting nice shots of them and making sure everything's

  • good, so we're having a little bit of lad time, you know.

  • We got, what, half an hour till we gotta come back.

  • So we're gonna go enjoy it, get some shots,

  • and try not to fall off.

  • Come on, Alex.

  • Look at him go.

  • A little sea lion there, having a bit of salmon.

  • We made it.

  • Look at this.

  • Alex going to get the shot there.

  • Gotta get your way through.

  • This is what happens, you gotta risk yourself

  • to get the shot.

  • Don't risk yourself too much

  • where you really risk your health and safety.

  • Because that is most important.

  • (upbeat music)

  • So we made it to an absolutely lovely spot, look at this.

  • Look at that view, huh?

  • We just got the drone up,

  • got some great shots of the sea lions and seals and birds.

  • Right, so that was a success, got some lovely shots.

  • Had some nice bonding time with my boy Alex.

  • Now we're gonna go on the eco-tour.

  • Cue the eco-tour.

  • Activity.

  • (chattering)

  • - [Jenn] Now to go on the eco-tour,

  • at the same dock we were yesterday.

  • But it is definitely more clear today.

  • Everything has blown over.
