A couple of weeks ago, both me and Jamie were very kindly invited to The Body Shop Leeds Briggate to come and check out a few of their recently released Spa of the World Firming Ritual products, and after having an amazing time checking everything out, I thought that I would tell you all about it.
What happened when I visited The Body Shop Leeds Briggate.
Once we had finally arrived in Leeds, and had done a little bit of shopping, we eventually decided to head to The Body Shop Leeds Briggate, which is located on Briggate, opposite Victoria Leeds in Leeds City Centre.
Once we had both walked into the beautiful store, we were very kindly greeted by one of their really friendly staff members, who said hi, and asked us if we were there for the Spa of the World Firming Ritual event. We said hi back, and that yes we were, and after a second or so of her checking her guest list, she said to go on through and have a look around.
Then after a couple of minutes of us wandering around and checking out their Clearance section, we headed over to the Whittard’s station to get ourselves a drink, and once we had said hi to the really nice woman at the station, she said that there were two cold brew Tea’s to choose from, either a deliciously fresh Cucumber and Mint Tea or a gorgeous fruity Grapefruit Yerba Mate, and once we had tried a little bit of both, we just wandered around for a little bit longer and checked out their Body Butter section.
Then after about ten or so minutes of us both wandering around, Kimberly, the wonderful woman who had invited us, brought the entire store to a quiet, introduced both herself and all of The Body Shop Leeds Briggate’s staff, and started to tell us all about some of their recent releases.
What Kimberly showed us.
The first thing that she showed us was their Amazonian Saviour Multi-Purpose Balm.
This contains only nine ingredients, and is 100% vegetarian. It also helps to revitalise the look of tattoos, nourish dry skin, and help the appearance of skin marks.
I really liked this, as I thought that it had an extremely thick texture to it, that would be great for moisturising extremely dry skin. I unfortunately wasn’t a massive fan of it’s scent though, as I thought that it kind of reminded me of hot soil.
The next thing that she showed us was their Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream.
This contains Ethiopian Green Coffee Beans, and helps the skin to feel firmer and smoother without leaving it feeling greasy.
I really liked this, as I thought that it had a very light texture to it, that kind of felt more like a Body Sorbet rather than a Body Cream. I also really liked it’s scent, as I thought that it kind of reminded me of a cross between their Moringa range and their Fuji Green Tea range.
The next thing that she showed us was their French Grape Seed Scrub.
This contains Grape Seed powder from France and community trade Sugar from Paraguay, to help invigorate, exfoliate, and radiate the skin.
I really liked this, as I absolutely love a good Scrub, and thought that it felt incredibly gritty. I also really liked it’s scent, as even though I was expecting it to smell of Grapes, I thought that it had quite an earthy yet fruity scent to it, that kind of reminded me of Plants.
The next thing that she showed us was their Indian Turtle Massager.
This was developed by community trade crafts people in India, and offers a unique pinching massaging experience that helps to stimulate blood flow.
I really liked this, as I thought that it looked incredibly high quality, and that it would be great for anyone who suffers from stiff muscles. I wasn’t really a fan of it’s pinching sensation when it was rolled on my arm though, as I thought that it felt extremely weird.
The next thing that she showed us was their Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil.
This contains Makrut Lime, which is praised by Thai women for it’s stimulating scent, and helps to nourish and firm the skin.
I really liked this, and thought that it had to be my favourite product of the evening, as once it was added to my hand, it was instantly absorbed into my skin. I also really liked it’s scent, as I thought that it kind of reminded me of freshly squeezed Lime Juice.
The next three things that she showed us were part of their Fuji Green Tea Haircare Collection, which contains the Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Shampoo, the Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Hydrating Conditioner, and the Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Hair Scrub.
The Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Shampoo, contains revitalising Japanese Green Tea, and helps to cleanse and remove impurities, whilst the Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Hydrating Conditioner, contains revitalising Japanese Green Tea, and helps to refresh both your hair and scalp, and the Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Cleansing Hair Scrub, contains revitalising Green Tea, Mint Menthol, Salt Crystals, and Ethiopian Honey, to help stimulate blood flow and remove impurities such as dust, smoke, sweat, and styling residue.
I really liked all of the range, as I had never heard of Green Tea being used in a hair care range before, and also had never heard of a hair scrub before either. I also really liked its scent, as I thought that it smelt pretty much like their Fuji Green Tea range, but with a little bit of a fresher and earthier scent to it.
The last and final thing that she showed us was their Banana Truly Nourishing Hair Mask.
This contains Organic Banana Puree from Ecuador and Brazil Nut Oil from Peru, to help your hair feel nourished from root to tip
I really liked this, as I absolutely love their Banana haircare range, and am really glad that they’ve decided to add a hair mask to it. I also really liked it’s scent, as I thought that this smelt so much like Bananas, that it was like I was actually smelling a real Banana.
Then once Kimberly had finally finished showing us all of the amazing products, we just wandered around for a little while before one of the wonderful staff members came over and asked us if we would like a hand and arm massage. We both of course said yes, and we went over to one of the massage tables to have our hand and arm massages. Jamie went for a massage with the Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream, and I went for one with the Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil, as I absolutely loved it’s scent, and wanted to see what it did to my skin.
Then once we had both finished our hand and arm massages, we just wandered around and chatted with some of the other bloggers who were also there for a little while, before the evening started to draw to a close. So we said our thank you’s and goodbye’s to all of the amazing staff members, and headed off back into Leeds to catch our train.
I had an absolutely amazing time at The Body Shop Leeds Briggate, and if you’re looking for some amazing products to add to your Spa ritual, I highly recommend that you check out their Spa of the World Firming Ritual products.
