Hi all my wonderful readers. I hope you’re all having a fantastic day.
A few weeks ago, I was very kindly invited to an event held at the Leeds Briggate The Body Shop store, and I thought I would tell you all about it.
Upon arriving at the beautiful store, we were greeted by some of the amazing staff. It’s getting to something when all the staff instantly know who we are, but that’s for another post. After a couple of moments, we were greeted by Tahira, the new store manager. After we had said hello, Tahira started to explain what we were going to be doing. As she was talking, two more amazing bloggers arrived. After we had all been introduced, Tahira continued to explain what was going to happen.
After she had finished, she told us all that there was drinks and a few nibbles on the side and to just help ourselves.
We were all then shown to the little tables they had set up for our hand massages. Seeing as how there was only four of us, we all got a staff member each. I was watching Jamie get his when the very lovely Sophie asked me if I wanted mine doing too? I instantly said yes, and she guided me over to her table.
With the event centred around the new Virgin Mojito range, she used most of the range on my hands.
Sophie started by dipping my hand in the really refreshing cold water. Sophie then added a little of the Virgin Mojito Body Scrub to my hand and started to gently buffer it in. The scrub felt amazing. Sophie then dipped my hand back into the water to rinse off the excess. Sophie then added a little of the Virgin Mojito Body Butter to my hand and started the hand massage. Oh it was to die for. Once Sophie had done she asked me to see if I could tell the difference between the softness of my hand compared to the other. After she had finished, we started to chat about the range for a little while. Jamie finished his, and came over to my table and told me that he had used the Virgin Mojito Body Sorbet. Sophie asked me if I would like to try a little too. I said yes please and she applied some to my arm. It was amazing, and it smelt so good.
After we had finished our massages and our hands and arms felt baby soft, we were told that we could just wonder around for a while.
We decided to go check out their hair ranges. It was mainly because I had never tried any of them. After about a minute or so of looking, a very nice staff member asked if we was ok. We said yes and that we were just looking as I didn’t really know that much about their hair care. She then started explaining all the different types and scents they sell. She even gave us a mini hair care consultation and recommended a few amazing products for us to use, which I will most definitely be checking out as soon as I can.
After we checked out their hair care we moved onto their makeup ranges. Sophie saw us again, and she started explaining all about their makeup, and all their new launches, including an extremely stunning turqiusy green eyeshadow with silver glitter that really makes your eyes shine.
After talking all about the new makeup, we moved onto their upcoming launches. We got talking about the new fragrances including a fig one. After smelling it, I could tell that there was something in there that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It’s a beautiful scent but it wont be for everyone. The other new launch that we got to talking about was that they will be relaunching all of their current fragrances with cool new packaging.
After that we decided to walk around and have a look at some of the other incredible ranges that they offer. We checked out a few things from the Vitamin E, the Vitamin C, and the Camamile ranges.
After wondering around for a little while, the event started to come to a close so we decided to leave. After saying our goodbyes and thank yous, we were given a very lovely goody bag full of little Virgin Mojito samples and a few other amazing The Body Shop products.
I had a fantastic time at the event, and I would just like to say a massive thank you to Tahira, Sophie, and all the team at The Body Shop Leeds Briggate store for an amazing time and for having me.
If you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you pop into their wonderful store.
