This summer, The Body Shop are making some changes and welcoming some noobs to the vast range of products they sell.
Alongside additions to their Vitamin C skincare line and the reinvention of their haircare line, they are releasing the brand spanking new Baked to Last and Delipscious collections.
I was invited to a bloggers event this past Friday to check out the products.
Me and Karleigh decided to meet up at the station and get to the hotel together..we got there about 20 minutes too early and stood outside discussing Dolly Parton. Yeah, I know you wish you were cool like us.
We ventured inside and were greeted by the lovely Headstream and Body Shop ladies. We were whisked out onto the veranda where it was really nice and cool (I mean weatherwise but it still pretty cool checking out the London skyline, despite the million and one cranes dotted around the place).
We were supping our orange juices (can you sup cold things?) and discussing our favourite old school Body Shop bits. I seem to be the only person who doesn't get on with the banana conditioner but we all seem to love the ice blue shampoo.
The haircare range.
The hair butters are what excited me the most as you know by now that I love deep conditioning my hair. It smells heavenly, looks very thick but feels light..
The Vitamin C range.
Keep your peepers peeled for a microdermabrasion scrub, an eye roll on/brightener combo and a skin radiance powder mix. The skin radiance powder is, according to me, a skincare renegade as I have never ever seen anything like it in the shops before.
The Baked to Last collection.
We were then introduced to Chase Aston (who I wanted to take home with me) and he introduced the Baked to Last collection and showed how to use the products and take your look from day to night.
The collection consists of baked eyeshadows, blushers and a highlighters.
The Delipscious lip collection.
Apparently, an average woman eats about 281 lipsticks in her entire life..which is why I was glad to find out that the Delipcious lippies were made from 100% food extract. They're very lightweight and the amount of pigment is just perfect for summer.
Then it was cupcake time! I was going to make my way over to them but got waylaid talking to Chase as I had a million and one makeup questions to ask him. He applied one of the baked shadows on my eyelids and they looked fantastic..I would never have used pink/red/black on my skintone but the colours worked really well. I totally forgot to take a photo of them though..
We took our seats and were told about The Body Shop's latest charity partnership. The Body Shop have teamed up with Epcat..which I won't discuss here but there will be a post up about in the very near future but I will say that if you buy the Soft Hands Kind Heart handcream, £3.45 will go towards preventing child trafficking to the UK.
