On the 29th March I was lucky enough to be invited to a blogger event at The Body Shop in Southampton, a brand that I already had such a massive love for! The Vitamin E skin care range has already replaced my beloved Liz Earle regime – one that I have used for years.
The evening started with a glass of bubbles (I KNOW WHAT A TREAT!) and a browse around the Southampton store. I am a massive online shopper since being a mummy – purely because getting out of the house sometimes is a nightmare let alone trying to park in West Quay! Then we were lucky enough to find out more about The Body Shop from the staff and the company blew my mind! Did you know that The Body Shop is the first global cosmetics company to stop animal testing in 1989? Did you know that The Body Shop is an 100% vegetarian beauty brand? No? I didn’t either, 60% of The Body Shop products are now vegan – they are pretty much a guilt free brand!
I could list hundred’s of my Body Shop favourites but I am going to only name a few!
The Vitamin E Range
As I quickly mentioned above – I AM OBSESSED! This range was actually introduced to me by my younger sister, Olivia after I noticed her glowing complexion – something I was desperate for! The range is suitable for all skin types – a rarity! I do use the whole range but a special mention for the Vitamin E Hydrating Toner! Its super refreshing, amazingly hydrating and is alcohol free! What more do you want!!
The Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Cleansing Oil-In-Gel
I was lucky enough be given this amazing product in my goody bag from the event and I have used it every day since! It is a first step gel textured cleanser which is infused with three different seed oils for all over the world. I have never used an oil based cleanser but I am so glad I finally have! This product has a sensorial texture which glides over your skin that then turns into a light milky lotion once wet! It is an 100% vegan product, gentle and all round FANTASTIC product!
Coconut Nourishing Body Butter
An all time favourite Body Shop product and one they are rightly famous for! I am a huge fan of all their body butters but coconut has got to be my favourite scent! I use it almost every night following a bath/shower since using I have noticed fading of my stretch marks – EVERY mothers dream, my skin feels moisturised and it smells INCREDIBLE!
Strawberry Bath Bomb
Remember the Hubba Bubba bubblegum’s you used to get when you were a kid? This product smells exactly like them! A nostalgic experience of relaxing in a milky PINK hot bath, listening the boy bands of the 90’s whilst surrounded by the scent of my childhood – my idea of a perfect pamper evening and what every mum needs!
So another massive thank you to The Body Shop West Quay for the invitation, I had an amazing night and throughly enjoying new products which are life changing!
