SFO Lounge - Where Elemis is not Elemis

Im currently sat in the SFO Lounge, which is very nice. I didnít get to experience it before the refurbishment but it definitely gets a thumbs up from me. Amusingly, the lady refilling the hand soap and lotion into Elemis bottles in the bathrooms proudly showed me the bottles - ďSuaveĒ was the brand, available very cheaply from your local Walmart

Yes, Suave is a common brand in the US, about $1 for a small bottle with dispenser like you would put on your sink the bathroom. Larger refill bottles are $4-20, depending on the size.

Are the rest of the lounge/airport filled with Suave? If so, the Elemis partnership probably didnít cover bathrooms.

Iím also currently in SFO lounge. I think the point is that the soap and lotion dispensers are both marked as being Elemis.

Hope you had a good flight... and yes, that was exactly the point I was making

When I was there a couple of weeks ago I witnessed the lady pour all of the Elimis lotions into Suave containers, ready for when she needed to top up the bathrooms

Are we saying it moves from a big Elemis container, to a smaller Suave bottle and then finally to the bathroom Elemis dispensers? 😂 Very random.
