Two weeks ago after the Urban Decay event, me and Chloe headed to The Body Shop Detox Party. We were invited when we went to Abbigayle’s event at The Body Shop on New Street a few months ago. I was looking forward to having a detox after Christmas and my birthday (I ate a lot…) so I was really excited to attend.
When we arrived, all of us bloggers went off to separate stations, each of us having either facials or a cleanse and make-up done. Me and Chloe went over to Jo, who cleansed our skin with products to suit our skin-type and then make-up to make us look more revived afterwards. My face was heavy with make-up on this particular day so it was in need of a good cleanse. Jo started off by spreading the Camomile cleansing butter on my face to remove my make-up alongside the Camomile waterproof eye make-up remover for my pesky mascara. The cleansing butter literally melted all my foundation off, it was wonderful! That would be such a quick and easy way to remove make-up every night. Jo then used the Seaweed toner on me to refresh and balance my skin, before going in with the Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate, which has a weird rollerball that you roll in a figure of eight over both eyes! It had a very odd feeling. Jo then applied the Drops of Youth Concentrate for smoother skin before applying moisturiser. The moisturiser she used on me was the Seaweed Mattyfying moisture lotion which left my skin soft but not feeling greasy like many moisturisers do. While my moisturiser was sinking in, me and Chloe were shown the new Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask, which has a gluey consistency but felt ever so soft on the skin.
Afterwards, Jo did my make-up. I usually use The Body Shop’s Instablur, so she decided to use the new Wonderblur on me. It made my skin feel amazing – once my Instablur runs out I think I’ll be switching to this! Then the trusty All-in-One BB Cream was used on me in 00, which I own and love using when my skin is being good. The Loose Face Powder in 02 was used to keep the BB cream put. I was weary of the Poppy Shimmer Cube in Pink being used on me as there was an orange in there…luckily Jo did a soft eye look with the green and grey cubes. The look was then finished off with the Lip & Cheek stain in Poppy Pink on my cheeks for a subtle bit of colour, and Poppy Red on my lips, which I absolutely loved.
We were also shown the new ranges: Drops of Youth, Smoky Poppy, Poppy Shimmer Cubes and Poppy Lip and Cheek Stains. In our little goody bags, we were given a sachet of the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask and sample pots of Smoky Poppy Poppy Seed Scrub, Smoky Poppy Body Butter and Fuji Green Tea Body Butter. I ended up buying the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask because it felt really good on my skin! I’m so grateful to Elaine for inviting us along and to Jo for making mine and Chloe’s evening!
Have any of the new ranges caught your eye?
