A few weeks ago I was very lucky to attend a bloggers evening in a local Body Shop Store! (White Rose Leeds) It has taken me quite a long time to upload this post… quite simply because I took SO MANY photos – and I knew that sifting through them was going to be a challenge! Why Kayleigh.
The lovely White Rose Store Manager Leah tweeted about the opportunity for bloggers to go to a Body Shop Event and I was like AHHH! I love The Body Shop, and this was just an opportunity that I could NOT give up.
Let me just tell you something…… The Body Shop has the most PERFECT photography lighting.
Do you think they will mind if I take all my future post photographs in store?
We were invited to view some brand new products and also view some products that are to be released in May / Summer, and trust me… you are in for A TREAT.
My particular favourite is the Virgin Mojito Range that is featured above. It smells divine, it is so fresh, absolutely perfect for that summer holiday! So so perfect for the summer – I need to buy the entire set! This isn’t quite out yet but I can’t wait to get my mitts on it. The range includes a body scrub, body butter, body sorbet, shower gel, and body splash. Being the shower gel hoarder that I am… (I have about 10 at the moment) I will SURE pick this up. SO EXCITED. *COMING SOON*
ANOTHER product range that I am really really excited about! The Honey Bronze Collection. The left shade is such a gorgeous highlight shade, I am sure it is going to be a hit! It was a perfect colour, not too shimmery, I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture of the swatch 🙁 Sorry lovelies! It is a lovely shade and formula though! I think the right shade would be too dark for my ghostly skin, but I thought I would include it anyway. *COMING SOON*
|Rhianna was the PERFECT hand model this evening! Her nails were BEAUT .|
These two eyeliners are available in store NOW. The Skinny Thin Felt Eyeliner and The Bold Oversized Felt Eyeliner (Both £10) Felt tip pen liners seem to be the trend these days, but I have yet to find one that I get along with. Either that, or I seem to be getting duff products each time – they are always dried out when I get them / come out a grey formula rather than black! I am always on the hunt for new ones, so I might give these a go! I personally would go for the finer tip, because I seem to always make it too thick anyway – even with a small tip! But these were super pigmented and drew on my hand with ease!
NEW to the Vitamin C Range, for Dull, Tired, Grumpy Skin. (ME!!!) The Glow Boosting Moisturiser (£16.00) and Instant Glow Enhancer (£14.00) I am constantly looking for products that make my skin look healthy and glowing. I really like the look of these products, the glow enhancer works kind of like a primer I believe. Both products revitalising for the skin and anti fatiguing. Recently I have been investing in products to make myself look less tired… and then I am like WHY DON’T I JUST SLEEP MORE! But there we go… I think I remember this smelling nice too!
The Fuji Green Tea Range is a NEW range that is available now! “Revive the body, Detox the mind” Drinking Green Tea is known for it’s health properties, but it is also very good for the skin. It is quite a low toned fragrance, not overly powerful.
I quite liked the scent, but not as much as other people did! I am into fruity scents, and this isn’t that. It is a very calming relaxing, kind of florally fragrance. I think it would be lovely after a day at work, it is a very fresh scent. Aww look at Rhi having a hand massage! Rhi’s hands were so soft afterwards!
The statement product in the range for me, was the Bath Tea. For all you tea lovers, your dream is about to come true! Can you imagine having a bath in a cup of tea? Pop a little bit of the Bath Tea into the Tea Strainer, and swirl it around your bath for an extremely relaxing aroma, as well as lovely soft skin afterwards! It produces quite a creamy water colour (See above) One for the day where you fancy a bath, and would love to have really soft skin afterwards, without the bubbles.
This product looks AMAZING. Unfortunately it was out of stock at the time of this event otherwise I would have walked away with it! The Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask (£22.00) Yes, we do have to already think about anti-ageing 🙁 It contains Edelweiss Stem Cells, the idea is that it is meant to make the skin look ‘bouncier’ with it’s youth – enhancing formula. The product ACTUALLY bounces too – one of those products that you would constantly play with I think!
I decided to purchase this lovely product. The Vitamin E Overnight Serum. (£13.00) I am really loving this! My skin looks so much healthier and replenished in the morning, it also smells divine.
Finally, this post ends soon, promise! We were kindly gifted a goodie bag at the end of the event, I can’t wait to try these products! (I had a photo of this, but it looked totally pants compared to the above photos… need to take all my photos in The Body Shop!)
Thank you so much to The White Rose Body Shop Team, you were so lovely, as well as so helpful and I had a lovely evening! Excited for the next event! I also got to meet up with some fabulous bloggers including Rhianna, Gabby, Bridie and Leanne.
Thank you for reading lovelies, do any of these Body Shop products take your fancy?
