The Body Shop in Eldon Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, kindly invited to me to a bloggers event they were holding to tie in with the launch of the new Wild Argan Oil range. I'd already watched FleurDeForce's amazing video on her trip to Morocco to find out more about the process of making the Argan Oil so I was super excited to attend the event.
The event was a great chance to meet some other North East bloggers as there aren't a lot of events up in Newcastle, especially brand ones! We got to sip on Bucks Fizz whilst receiving amazing arm and hand massages using the brand new products from the Wild Argan Oil range.
The products that were used on me during the massage were the shower gel, body scrub, body lotion and radiant oil and they left my skin feeling sooo soft. Seriously, everyone was walking round stroking their arms! The products had a gorgeous smell too. I actually learned something about body scrubs when I had my massage that I didn't know. Apparently when you use a body scrub containing salt and/or sugar, like the Wild Argan Oil one, you should massage it into dry skin first as if you do it under the water, the salt/sugar will get dissolved and you won't get the full effects of the scrub. As I type this, it kinda sounds like common sense so you might be sitting there thinking 'duh!' but I honestly never thought of this before!
I was given a lovely goodie bag containing four of the products from the new Wild Argan Oil range so expect a full review of those on the blog soon, along with a haul from the evening.
If you're from Newcastle or close by and you're wishing you could go to an event like this, you are in luck! There is a customer event at 1pm - 7pm on Tuesday 19th August in their Eldon Square store so you can discover a new pampering ritual for your skin using the new Wild Argan Oil range. You can book a slot in advance by calling 0191 222 1893 to ensure you don't miss out on this fab event. If you quote my blog name, you can also bag yourself a little goodie and an extra VIP service!
If you're after some sneaky inside information, ok well it's not that sneaky, The Body Shop are launching a range of Color Crush nail polishes. They only had two of the shades on display in store but there are going to be 24 shades in a quick-dry, high gloss formula. They are also 100% vegan. These will be available in store from Tuesday 9th September.
