Hellooo, everybody! I hope you’re all fine and dandy and enjoying these crisp Autumn days. It’s starting to get a little chillier and I don’t know about you, but I’m getting VERY excited for Christmas! What are your festive plans? Let me know in the comments below!
A little while ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to one of the Body Shop’s fabulous VIP Events, so I thought I’d share it with you! I did vlog the event, which you can see here, but thought it might be rather lovely to talk in a little more detail about it.
Upon arriving at the store, I was greeted by an incredibly friendly gent with flawless eyebrows who took my name and directed me and my friend to a station adorned with glasses of prosecco, fresh orange juice, cute chocolates and other delicious nibbles. I got a glass of fresh orange juice because I’m a freak and I detest prosecco with a fiery vengeance, and listened as one of the ladies explained what was going to happen. First, she was going to use some of their new makeup products to deliver an autumnal tutorial. Whilst she was doing that, we were free to watch or wander around the store and enjoy 30% off all the products (AMAZING!), plus hand and arm massages, face masks and skin assessments, props to take selfies with and much more! The staff were SO lovely and helpful; they really wanted to ensure everyone had a brilliant evening.
There was an absolute goddess delivering the hand and arm massages, but there was a bit of a queue, so I decided to have an explore and sample some of the gorgeous products.
I absolutely love the range of body butters, heavenly scents and HUGE volume of versatile beauty items, more so because every single thing is 100% vegetarian and over 50% of their products are vegan. I think this is such an amazing stance for a company to take and it just makes shopping there all the more wonderful and positive!
After taking a few selfies with my friend and having a play with a crazy amount of lotions and potions, it was my turn for a massage. All I can say is BLESS the woman who gave me my massage because I was NOT a decent conversationalist! In fact, whenever I’m getting something relaxing done, the ability to talk completely fails me, I’m rubbish! A relaxed Jess is a quiet Jess…
I got a few bits and bobs for myself (you’ve gotta treat yo’self) and everyone received a free gift upon paying for their shopping. It was a gorgeous camomile cleansing butter, eye makeup remover and a super cute watermelon lip balm! I thought this was incredibly generous of The Body Shop and my love affair with their stores will carry on and on.
All in all, I had a really lovely, chilled evening at one of my favourite stores with one of my favourite people. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I got some gorgeous products for an absolute BARGAIN and cannot wait for their next event!
Thanks for reading, chums! I hope you enjoyed this post. Please let me know your favourite Body Shop products in the comments below and I will speak to you soon.
