By now you must know I absolutely adore The Body Shop and a couple of weeks back I was invited along to The Butterfly and the Pig in Glasgow just a ten-minute walk away from the central station.
When being introduced to the aspect of the event I already knew about The Body Shop at home parties and always loved the idea of hosting my own but never really got around to it with working late shifts and finding the time. Claire Berry talked us through each product from the display range at the event and the best of skincare advice. The talk was very interesting and she also mentioned about the vagarious skincare routines some countries have to keep their skin in mint condition and to prolong the signs of ageing (in all honesty it put my skincare routine to shame!).
I got to meet lots of lovely bloggers in person that I follow and some new faces which were refreshing and a great opportunity to meet more local bloggers in the area. Before the event, everyone attending had to fill out a skin diagnosis to personalise our event goodie bags (these were extremely generous and I couldn’t have been happier with mine). My favourite products from the bag had to be the new Oils of Life range. This is my first time being introduced to the range and I’ve absolutely loved how luxurious they are on the skin and the simplicity of the packaging, so dreamy!
I loved the Drops of Youth range which I kindly received too! The Oils of Life range is perfect for me because I’m obsessed with facial oils and find they benefit my skin even if it’s on the oily side. The Drops of Youth range, however, is very similar but the Youth Concentrate is slightly thicker in consistency and almost sticky like before applying to the skin, but once you do it completely transforms my skin. It hydrates instantly and the next morning I can notice a huge difference in the texture of my skin and it looks more balanced than it normally would.
The Tea Tree range from The Body Shop has always been a firm favourite of mine and the first product range I actually tried them when my skin was breaking out bad as a teenager. I’m also an avid user of the Vitamin E range and enjoy how gentle this range is on the skin and it just leaves it feeling so soft. Stuart from Stuart Dreghorn Photography helped us out with some basic and advanced photography tips for our blogging and how to get the most from our cameras/settings. The Butterfly and Pig will be somewhere I could see myself visiting again soon when I travel to the city next as the atmosphere is very cosy and almost homely like; it really was tranquil and the delicious cakes and sandwiches made it that extra special. You might have already noticed the brand new packaging which is absolutely lush if you ask me! I think it’s perfect and the simplicity of the packaging really updates the older packaging and gives it a fresh lease of life.
