If you have been reading my blog for a while, you MUST have realized by now, how much I love The Body Shop. I must admit, I do fall for the products they put on the shelves and so far, I have loved almost every single product I have ever owned.
So last Tuesday, I got the opportunity to attend a bloggers’ event by The Body Shop (Malta)!! I had been contacted a few weeks back and was also asked to invite 6 other people to tag along. My good friends Liza and Fran were obviously two of the six, and the other four were these beautiful ladies:
Maya from Blue Jeans and Red Lipstick
Lyndsey from Splashes of Looks
Charlene from A Cosmetic Affair
Lorraine from Lola Loves Sparkles
The event took place at their Sliema outlet where we listened to a short presentation about the brand and their new products, mainly their Wild Argan Oil range. The presentation then transitioned into a makeup demo using The Body Shop products, and a mini pamper manicure session that we all could get.
The most talked-about range during the event was of course their Wild Argan Oil range. This range is part of The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade campaign and get Wild Argan Oil fr0m Morocco. The Body Shop currently have 25 Community Trade suppliers around the world and intend on featuring more.
The Wild Argan Oil Range consists of 9 products:
- Wild Argan Oil Body Butter
- Wild Argan Oil Radiant Oil
- Wild Argan Oil Body Scrub
- Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel
- Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath
- Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion
- Wild Argan Oil Solid Oil Lip Balm
- Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil
- Wild Argan Oil Massage Soap
The range also comes with an ‘Argan Lily Blue’ Loofah, but doesn’t contain any Wild Argan Oil properties.
During the makeup demo, their also was a short mention of the All in One Instablur Eye Primer. This product has been released for quite a few months but has been a hit since it first launched. This primer can be used all over the face like any other primer, with it’s main focus being for the eye area.
One of their latest releases, are the Colour Crush nail polish range. The 26 nail polish range is 100% vegan and is 5-free. The formula for these nail polishes is made without Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene or Camphor. Moreover, the formula is made with Community Trade Marula Oil.
The rest of the night consisted of a lovely chat with the ladies and the staff. The Body Shop were very generous by offering a free renewal of their Love Your Body Loyalty Card (which I had just renewed two weeks before ) and on top of that, and additional 15% on all of their products! They also didn’t let us leave empty handed and gave us a very generous goodie bag to go along with our personal purchases.
I had happened to visit the shop two weeks prior to the event, so I didn’t purchase much. With that being said, I can’t help myself.
I ended up getting the White Musk Smoky Rose Eau De Parfum and the Wild Argan Oil Massage Soap. May I first just point out that their entire White Musk range is divine – but, I can’t have it all (for now) and so decided to opt for this one. The Smoky Rose perfume has a (obviously) floral-musk scent which I find to be slightly mature and strong, yet not overpowering. It also has notes of tobacco flower which I personally find intriguing.
The Massage Soap is something that the salesgirl talked me into getting, I must admit. Not that I mind adding to my Wild Argan Oil collection (I have 4 out of the 9 + the loofah). I do actually like massage soaps and what really caught my attention is the shape. With the shape being as it is, it serves as a tension relieving massage as well as microcirculation – not that I suffer from lack of circulation but it can always help, especially in the Winter months (this is me justifying the reason for buying it).
On to the goodie bag! As I said, The Body Shop were very generous, and since I got a couple of friends with me, they dropped a few extra bits into my goodie bag!
I know right! Quite the goodie bag! These are all the products I found in my goodie bag:
- Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel
- Dewberry Body Lotion
- Chocomania Shower Cream [Sample Size]
- 2 Chocomania Body Lotions [Sample Size]
- Red Musk Eau De Parfum [Sample Size]
- ColourGlide Shine Lip Colour in 11 – Rare Coral
- Four Sample Pots of Body Lotions
- Bath Soap Balls (couldn’t find there official name anywhere – If you know, please let me know)
Overall it was a lovely evening – great company, great products, great brand! Everyone from The Body Shop was so helpful and sweet – and they also offered us Oreos and a drink! Personally, I enjoyed every minute of it and can’t wait to try out all of the products!
