The Liverpool One Body Shop Event

Last night marked the Liverpool One Body Shop event, thrown by my very lovely fellow blogger Aisling. It was a night of skincare, make up and... well, me becoming Katy's cackling shadow (sorry about that, mate.) I have to admit that I'm only really lately getting into The Body Shop, I've always been overwhelmed by the sheer choice and that tends to make somebody as generally publicly nervous as me avoid somewhere like the plague, but in the last few months I've managed to pick up a few treats that I love including the Tea Tree Facial Toner and the Warming Mineral Mask, so I was really excited to have the chance to speak to Ash and her colleagues to get some ideas of where to head next.

Champagne and Strawberries

After heading over with Emma, Tasha, Asbeena and Katy, we met up with our fellow bloggers, talked to Ash and got out the cameras to take some pictures of the gorgeous drinks before anyone was selfish enough to take one and ruin it. Ash had told us to have a mooch around, and there were people on hand to help us with make-up questions, as well as Ash herself to do skincare consultations (which is what she's a specialist in, and she's fab - so if you're ever in Liverpool). Although I personally didn't have my make-up done or have a skincare consultation, mainly owing to the fact I have a graze on my forehead that took forever to cleverly conceal before arriving, I did watch, listen and generally take some creepy photographs whilst other people did. 

Body Shop Makeovers

After I'd gegged in on this for a little while, and Katy came out with a new cherry red lip, the two of us had a wander round the shop and I tried a lot more products than I had planned on, due to Katy's tried and tested method of swatching things on herself and then rubbing them onto me. We also had a really interesting tutorial on how to use the new Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask, which weirdly looks and feels like PVA glue, although does blend down into a really soft if fairly heavy duty sleep mask. We also learned a little about the new lipstick range, which I can't find on the website but I do remember somebody mentioning they might be yet to come out, which is black in tube (technically in pencil) but matches the PH of your skin to transform to the perfect colour - I could possible be tempted into some of those in the future, even if they do slightly terrify me.

Cannabis Shaped Soap

Just before leaving Ash gave us some gorgeous gift bags, filled with testers and little bits and pieces I was really excited to try - I also ended up buying the Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask and some Camomile Cleansing Butter to replace my rapidly decreasing levels of Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm (boo, some of us are unemployed and can't afford such luxuries anymore!)

Body Shop Gift Bag

I had a lovely night with some even lovelier ladies, so thanks so much Ash and, of course, The Body Shop. I'll undoubtedly get some reviews up from the goodies that I did buy in the next few weeks (oh, hark at my inner beauty blogger making an appearance.) If you want to follow my fellow partners in crime for the night, you can here: Ash, Katy, Tasha, Asbeena, Emma Louise, Emma, and Lauren.

Sammy xo.
