Last week we were kindly invited along to an intimate blogger event with The Body Shop in Silverburn Shopping Centre to find out more about their products. When you’re in your early teens it seems like the thing to do to visit the Body Shop for tea tree oil when the problematic skin starts. Now that we’re a little older we haven’t been too familiar with the products as we used to be but with the event was a chance to try out new products as well as rediscovering some old favourites. Here’s what happened.
To many the little tin above is just another moisturiser, nothing remarkable. But to the trained eye this is pretty special, this is Steam Cream a hand made natural blend of ingredients fused together with a shot of steam, making this a light weight super hydrating hero for the skin and face.
Orla Kiely Geranium Wash Bag Gift Set*
Now lets get one thing clear, the title of this post may say ‘gift set’ but the only person receiving this gift is me. Quite frankly because this wash bag is, perfection! This sums up everything I love, a bold seventies inspired print, durable material, very roomy oh and it has some lovely products inside too, what’s not to love? Swooning session over, lets get down to the nitty gritty. Irish born designer Orla Kiely has been named ‘the Queen of prints’ and quite rightly so, whether its on a beautiful dress, a dishcloth or this humble wash bag her prints really do sing and pop out against what can be today’s very modern, dull background.
I’ve always been a fan of Cath Kidston, or pretty much anything with a floral or polka dot print to be honest. When I see brands like hers come out with beauty products I never have high expectations but this time I was pleasantly surprised. The Wild Flowers trio is a lovely assortment of handbag sized hand creams with scents of Bluebell, Wild Rose and Honeysuckle. Naturally sweet but not too overpowering.
One of the things I love most about beauty is how certain products are tailored for certain times of the day, month, year and season. It’s basically just an excuse for us beauty junkies to accumulate more goodies to add to our obviously ‘essential’ collections. So with this in mind I thought I’d share with you some products I’m currently enjoying using in the evening.
