Last Friday, I joined some of the other Aberdeen(shire) bloggers for an evening of skincare advice, shopping and, of course, a glass or two of fizz. The Aberdeen branch of The Body Shop kindly hosted us for a couple of hours after closing time, allowing us to ask about which products are best suited to our own personal needs. We were also able to try some of their new ranges. It was also lovely to see bloggers I’d met before while also meeting some new faces. And to top it all off, I got some fantastic new skincare products. Have a read about some of my favourites!
- British Rose Perfume
This perfume is one I’d had my eye on for quite a white before the event. Whenever I was in store for a toner or something (by the way, the toner from the seaweed range is amazing!), I’d always find myself looking at this particular perfume. So I knew it was time to just buy it. The perfume has a very fresh and, as you’ll have guessed, a very floral scent. It lasts throughout the day without being overpowering when you first put it on. And at £20, it’s not too bad a price considering how much we often spend on our perfumes.
- Make Up
I’ve used some of The Body Shop’s make up for quite a while now. Having tried a number of brands, The Body Shop’s is some of my favourite. It doesn’t make your skin all shiny and if you do happen to get a shine later in the day, the powder is great for dealing with it. The Body Shop also has some lovely new shades of lipsticks, from reds to more neutral colours; I couldn’t resist adding one to my basket!
- ‘Fall for Pumpkin’ Products
The first thing you need to know about this new range is that it smells incredible! It smells sweet (but not sickly!) and is actually pretty soothing. It has a very autumnal scent, which is appropriate for this time of year! The ‘Fall for Pumpkin’ cream is by far my favourite product from the event.
- 8 Million Signatures Against Animal Testing!
In the past week, The Body Shop has achieved its goal of getting 8 million signatures in the fight against animal testing. The petition has since been taken to the United Nations. Animal testing is arguably an extremely devastating worldwide issue that absolutely needs to be changed. It’s therefore fantastic that such a huge international company is doing something worthwhile to help combat animal cruelty.
the event at The Body Shop’s Aberdeen store was a pretty great night! I got some excellent advice about my own skincare and also bought some new products that I already love using. I’m also delighted to buy from an ethical company that actually cares about animal welfare on a worldwide scale. And, as always, it was lovely to see some of the other Aberdeen(shire) bloggers.
