The Body Shop Blogger Evening

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

I was asked by the lovely Lucy from Pretty Little Things & The Cotton City (check out here blog, here) if I wanted to go to The Body Shop event at the Trafford Centre on the 16th September, I obviously said yes! Who doesn't love The Body Shop! I have a few new Body Shop items on my autumn/winter wish list such as the camomile cleansing butter, eyeshadows and the BB cream...
I met up with Lucy and we went over to The Body Shop where we were greeted by the lovely staff as well as drinks and snacks. While Lucy had her nails painted with the new Body Shop polishes, I had a skin consultation with Alicia (skin consultations are free in store). She went through all of the skin care ranges and said that the aloe range would be the best for my sensitive, eczema prone skin. She used the Camomile cleansing butter, aloe toner, aloe day cream and the new youth enhancing powder duo (the drops of youth) on my skin - all of the products were amazing on first use! Although it was quite nerve wracking having all of my makeup taken off in the store, although my skin has been behaving itself *praise the skin care gods*!

I then had a makeover by Alicia, she used the Body Shop All in One BB Cream on me in the lightest shade which was surprisingly a pretty good match for my very pale skin. She also used three of the Body Shop shadows on me (golden cinnamon, coco deluxe and a golden shade). I didn't think that I could really pull off cranberry shades but it looked amazing, I wasn't too sure at first but I loved the way it looked in the end! I definitely need to look into cranberry, autumnal shades as they did make the green in my eyes stand out. Alicia based my makeup on AW14 makeup trends and autumnal shades. She also used the new InstaBlur Eye as well as the new Smoky 2 in 1 Eyeliner which can also be used on the brows - it was nice a liner but not so great for the brows in my opinion! 

Overall, it was a great little event and I was able to see how the new makeup and skincare products would work on me as well as discovering a new autumnal eyeshadow look. Thanks to Lucy and The Body Shop, I definitely need a Body Shop haul soon!

  2. Sounds like a fun event!

    I love the Camomile Cleansing Butter, and have also started using the Aloe Day Cream - it's quite thick, but surprisingly light on the skin!

    I've not tried The Body Shop make up in forever, but have always loved it in the past - I'd love to try their Autumnal eye shadow shades!
