The Body Shop #HappySkin Event
The lovely guys at The Body Shop and Tradedoubler hosted an evening showcasing their newest summer releases. Held at the swanky Westbury Hotel just off Oxford Street,the nighlights shone green and orange over the gorgeous new products and Mojitos which greeted us upon arrival. Representatives from The Body Shop were on hand to give us skincare consultations and makeup artists stood beside tables crammed with the latest products. We were invited to pull up a chair and have a chat about what new things they had to offer. The canapés were delicious - food tastes so much better in miniature form!
First up we were introduced to the new limited edition Virgin Mojito Body Range by global skincare expert, Dr Terry. The collection is designed to keep your skin cool and add some tropical hydration to your summer bodycare routine. The whole range smells incredible - almost good enough to drink, it's like happy hour for your skin. The stand out product for me was the Virgin Mojito Body Scrub; it's invigorating scent and cooling texture makes this great for removing sticky sun cream. The new range launches on the 2nd June but it's worth the wait.
Another launch that got me excited (and available to buy now!) was the new Vitamin C skincare products. As someone who suffers from tired, dull skin I was thrilled to try the Glow Boosting Moisturiser. Unlike other Vitamin C products on the market, The Body Shop use one of the most potent natural sources of vitamin C in the world: the camu camu berry, from the depths of the Amazonian rainforest. These berries really pack a punch and contain up to 60 times the vitamin C power of an orange! I've tested this gel cream out this morning and it was definitely love at first use, keep an eye out for a full review soon!
What is summer without a bit of bronze-y goodness? This season TBS are treating us to three new launches in the Honey Bronze Collection so you can achieve a head-to-toe sunkissed glow. I was really impressed with how natural and subtle all the bronzing products were - not an orange limb in sight. Keep an eye out for the Honey Bronze Face Gel, Tinted Leg Mist and Highlighting Domes. I was also eyeing up their new Honey Bronze Bronzers so I think a trip to The Body Shop is on the cards soon.
Overall it was a lovely event, gorgeous setting, great company and lots of beautiful new products that are on their way to stores soon. I recommend having a gander at the Vitamin C skincare range!
