I got an invite to the body shop blogging event in the intu metro centre and how could i say no to one of my favourite brands. We started the evening by being greeted by one of the girls. We went over to a special machine and designing our own labels on our body butters. This is a new exclusive service that the body shop have brought to us lovely folks for 2016. You can have a personalized message up to 11 characters made especially for you. I went with Coffee as i am a coffee addict… seriously i think i might drink too much, But enough isn’t enough! Being healthy is too boring for me. SO photographed below is my lovely body butter with my wild about coffee label. I picked the frosted berry body butter although it was a tough choice between this and the vanilla chai i caved for the sweeter scent of the frosted berries.
We then proceeded to the middle counter where i received a lovely hand exfoliation with the frosted berry exfoliating sugar body scrub which was divine, very nourishing and a great result on the skin. I love how this exfoliator can be used in the shower too !
We then looked at the new Christmas range goodies which this year themes are;
The box sets are adorable i think the apple festive tin would be a great gift idea for someone for Christmas! you can get any of the above flavours in an adorable tin. The little Treat boxes are a great stocking filler with little travel sized goodies.
We then got to look at the make-up and the Body shop have released new matte lipsticks similar to the NYX matte lipsticks at £6. The colours are gorgeous especially the nudes Cali Gerbera 010 and Crete Carnation 030 are a make-up bag necessity for those girls who are obsessed with their nudes.
I really loved the eye colour stick, it is great to add a bit of a sparkle to your eyes, the product consists of beeswax and is waterproof. Nevada gold and Siberian Quartz are my go to products. I adore eye shadows that have a metallic shimmer especially for the Christmas season for all those christmas party’s and night outs. You can use the colour stick for wings,shading and highlighting your eyes. Great addition for those girls who like a more galm look.
Next we looked into skin care and i adore the vitamin E range already but the Body shop’s Face masks are something else i think i need to invest in. I love the over all packaging very clear and sophisticated and i desperately want to try the Amazonian Acai mask which fights the appearance of fatigue and provides that extra bit of radiance, great for these winter months ahead. At £15 its a little pricey especially with me being a student but it is a price i would be willing to pay due to quality of the masks and the ingredients.
Over all i had a wonderful night thank you Body Shop for having me #Thebodyshopmetrocentre and i cant wait to use my fabulous frosted berry body butter and vanilla chai hand cream. I’m already feeling festive! Not long until christmas now!
