Last Friday I was invited along to The Body Shop, for an evening of pampering, shopping and to try out some new products with some fellow Bloggers. The Aberdeen branch hosted the after hours event, and gave us skin care and make-up consultations tailored to our needs and skin types. Fantastic hand massages were also on offer on the evening. This was the first local event I had attended as a new Blogger, and as I was quite nervous, I took my Mother in Law along for some much needed support. As it turns out, we had a wonderful night and everyone involved in bringing it together were just lovely! Today I’m going to write about our night, and what new skincare products I took home with me.
On arrival we were greeted with a goody bag (yay!), containing some lovely new products and samples. As soon as I saw the Fall for Pumpkin body butter I squealed with delight! I love everything pumpkin and as I imagined, this body butter is absolutely amazing! It smells like a dream and leaves your skin feeling really soft and nourished.
After we were offered some drinks (a Starbucks Teavana Green Tea for me!), we were given an introduction to the Body Shop by the lovely staff members, as well as a run down on some of the evenings products and pampering available to us. The Body Shop is forever against animal testing and have helped ban animal testing in the UK. The company held a petition, which on the day had reached 8 million signatures! The Body Shop are now heading towards the United Nations, where they are aiming toward ending animal testing for good. How amazing is that!
After a browse of the store and picking up all the things for our baskets, both my Mother in Law and I had our own make-up consultation with the lovely Megan. She spent quite some time finding the right shade, and showing us how to perfectly apply our foundation.
Last but certainly not least, we tried the new 100% Vegan body yoghurts. They come in a variety of scents, from banana to Mango, each one smelling devine! We then headed home with our new products and a cute little Moringa body gift set free with our purchases. Thanks for a great night Body Shop, I already can’t wait for the next event which will be focused on Christmas, yay!
