The Body Shop Blogger Event

On Thursday, I was invited to the Body Shops Blogging event at the Metro Centres. It started at six,  and I arrived surprisingly on time, considering I'm always late. I was hoping to meet up with some lovely bloggers. 

I was greeted with being introduced to my own personal assistant, who made feel very special. They showed me around and highlighted the Body Shop's latest products. My confession it's been years since I've stepped in the body shop. I remember as a child going in with Mam, and my olfactory senses being delighted by all the delicious aromas; my favourite was their strawberry soap.  Back then it had more of hippy bohemian vibes, it was like Lush of its days. Now after Years, it's transformed into a luxurious and sophisticated mini spa.  





I was offered the selection beverages everything from a girl's favourite pressco or non-acholic Elderberry bubbly.  I was shown their gorgeous fragrances, each was beautifully scented, each smell more natural and without being overpowering. My personal choice the floral scents of the Kahala white flora, it reminded me summer.

                                     

I was treated to a complimentary hand massage. They had a range of portion and lotions that scrumptious ice creams. My hands were massaged with the Mediterrian sea salt scrubs, a subtle but refreshing aroma. Next, my hands were mostited with the Atlantic Seaweed Cream, I was reminded of being at the coast. The Beauty assistant really got into their nooks and crannies leaving my hands feeling tingly; the muscles were so relaxed my hands were ready to go to sleep.



I met up with the lovely bloggers Macara for Macara's Space and Amy Louise Anchored Teapot. I haven't seen these lasses before Christmas. It's hard to believe it only feels like yesterday. The girls are definitely becoming some amazing and fun friends; every time I see them, I can't stop smiling and laughing. We had a girly catch up and gossip. As usual, the ladies turned up looking amazingly glamorous. 




Like I said before I hadn't stepped into a Body Shops store in years. I was befuddled by encountering an entirely new concept of personalising body butter. You can select a and print off a personalised sticker to place a the body butter tubs. 







 So I went first and to print out my personal stickers.  February is the month is Valentines and with the present turbulent times, it seemed only perfect to promote a little bit of peace and love. 





All of us were shown to the Body Shop latest products my favourite has to be their Liquid Peels. It comes in three options  Green Bottle - Drops of Youth, Drops of Light and the Glow Revealing Liquid Peel. I'm in absolutely in love with these products. It's meant to remove the environmental pollutants and dead skin cells. I was given sample I've used the Drop of Youth for the last couple of days and my skin feels so rejuvenated and smooth. This one is definitely one I am going to purchase.  







All the guest were treated like VIP's,  I was surprised to be even more spoilt with to a goody bag.

  2. The scents I'm drawn to tend to be floral too. Do they have Moringa over there? It's really nice.

    They didn't have the personalising thing last time I was there, must be new!

    1. I'm not sure if the Body Shop has that fragrance, it sounds nice.

      I think only selected stores have the personalising machines.

  3. Hm, seems interesting^^ We have a Body Shop over here as well, but I haven't checked it out yet. Honestly, it seems a little on the expensive side and I'm not the type to spend too much on beauty stuff.

  4. I'm definitely liked one or two of their products but until I get a more income it's going to have to wait. Some of their stuff does seem nice.

  5. Wow, what a great night! Our body shops don't look like that in Canada? Unless they are all getting revamped! They are still green, like from years ago. I hope this all comes to us! Exciting!

  7. I like the youth of drops on that expanding list of stuff I want but I'll just wait until I get paid. Since I'm heading to 29 I'm consider more about the anti ageing stuff lol.

    Also my partner and I are watching Northern Exposure and in the intro there a young moose wandering through the town. So, I should pic of the moose outside of your house he couldn't help smiling.

  10. I hope feel better, their seems a there is a virus that's going around. I had a lot of sinus trouble. I've not used the Body Shop makeup but they had a couple of beautiful deep red and plum lips glosses.

    It'll be great to meet up again.

    1. Their lip glosses smell heavenly and are nice on. I love Illamasqua's Succubus red, but BS's actually smell nicer and are cheaper.

    2. I keep meaning to try Illamasqua, like so many thing it's comes down to budget.
