A Sunday Evening at the Body Shop

I had a fun night on Sunday attending the exclusive Body Shop event at the Intu, Metrocentre. The Body Shop was kind enough to invite me. Since attending the store's last event I 've definitely become a fan of their products. I often use the Drops of Youth Liquard Peel and the body butters. 

Before the event,  I met up with Macara from Macara's Space before the event. We were both feeling stoked

 Gianni and Katie had organised the event to specifically for the local bloggers and vlogger community.  I was welcomed by the beauty assistants and offered a beverage of prosecco and nibbles. As usual, the Body Shop assistants know how to treat me by making feel me very special with their VIP treatment. 

Katie and Gianni introduced themselves, thanked everyone for attending. They discussed the concept behind the blogger events, how the community played an important role in promoting the brand, and want to plan more events, particularly within the North East, things, are getting exciting. 

Gianni had been instrumented in organising the fantastic night. With an array of complimentary treatments from therapeutic hand massages using their delicious spa body scrubs and moisturisers; makeovers with the latest makeup trends for autumn and even a Halloween option for anyone feeling brave.  They offered us to try out their range of Liquard Peels. (On a personal note, I use the Drops of Youth several times a week definitely feel its contributed to improving my skin conditions and acne breakouts.) We also got to try out their latest products. My favourite was the limited edition Pumpkin and vanilla products. 

The Night also allowed us the first chance to see their Christmas Advent calendar. Allowing for a person to have new a present while counting down the days until Christmas.  It was interesting to see the Advent Calander but I think this would be a waste on me. It would make a lovely present for loved ones. 

I loved how the Bodyshop had decorated and released a   small autumn collection to celebrate the spooky season; with the realise of their limited edition pumpkin and vanilla shower gel and body butter, that smell gorgeous. The Body Shop has a special deal on presently, purchase any three beauty products for £20, including the body butters. I can never resist a good bargain, I stocked on three tubs of the cream, I purchased two of the pumpkin and vanilla butter.

They even had plenty of inspiration for Halloween with pictures of lastest spooky makeup looks.  I wasn't feeling daring enough try out the Halloween options, the designs looked amazing.   

The Body Shop are trying campaign to ban animal testing and asked us to sign their petition. To spread awareness they created a selfie both to promote the campaign on social media. So, we could take silly selfies by wearing a pair of bunnies ears or a polar bear mask. 

A few of us posed a fun selfie. I wanted to be a polar bear rather than a bunny. On the left is Maraca and Pixie from Fashion Voyeur. Pixie's  a successful blogger, genuinely a lovely person with a no crap punk attitude, that I love.  I look a bit squinty eyed but who cares it was fun.

I even got to a have fun playing on the personalising machine making a sticker for my complementary body butter. I wasn't expecting that. I  all stocked up on body butters.   


Surprisingly, we were all treated a goody bag containing, a liquid lipstick,  Oil of  life beauty cream, and a couple of samples their latest facial masks. I'm definitely going to pamper myself later.
