The Body Shop Christmas Blog Event

The Body Shop Christmas Blog Event

A week last Friday I was lucky enough to attend The Body Shop Christmas Blogger Event at my local store in Coppergate, York. There are few brands do Christmas as full-on as The Body Shop and their festive fragrances are amazing so I was looking forward to getting into the Christmas spirit and trying out some new products. We were welcomed into the store with a glass of bubbly and a festive cupcake, then the Store Manager started off by giving us a quick overview of how the evening would run and then told us about this year’s three Christmas fragrances – Frosted Plum, Frosted Cranberry and Glazed Apple. We were then split into two groups and given a tour of the latest new products from The Body Shop. The first range we looked at was the new Oils Of Life, I already reviewed these skincare products here when they launched. Next up we got to try out some of the new Christmas make-up. I think people often forget that The Body Shop...

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Collection

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Collection

I love The Body Shop® at Christmas as they have such amazing products and this year is no exception. I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of new products to try out, and I can honestly say that I love each and every one! I really think that The Body Shop® has stepped up its game over the last few years, they now have some fantastic make-up and their Christmas fragrances are second to none – plus it’s so affordable! This is my first of a two-part review of The Body Shop® Christmas range, as I attended a special blogger evening at my local store in York on Friday evening – so keep an eye out for my second post later this week to find out what we got up to! Glazed Apple Shimmer Mist* – Shimmer Mist is a completely new product for Christmas 2015 and apparently it’s selling like hot cakes – so if you want one you’ll need to get in quick! Available in all three...

The Body Shop – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter & Glazed Apple Hand Cream

The Body Shop – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter & Glazed Apple Hand Cream

I’ve got another duo from The Body Shop® festive ‘Sweet Treat’ bodycare range for you today – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter* and Glazed Apple Hand Cream*. Both of these festive lovelies would make a great stocking filler this Christmas (or you could just keep them for yourself!). Frosted Cranberry Body Butter – In my opinion The Body Shop® do the best body butters! You can get cheaper ones elsewhere but they’re not always as rich and moisturising as the ones from The Body Shop®. My personal favourite is the Shea Body Butter, but I also love the coconut and pink grapefruit varieties (you can read my previous review of The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter here). Frosted Cranberry is one of the new Christmas 2014 scents from The Body Shop® and it’s available in several different products, including this body butter. The scent is both sweet and sharp at the same time, and reminds me of something from my childhood although I’m not sure what! This Frosted Cranberry Body...

Jacava – Nail Polish in Toffee Apple and Top Coat

Jacava – Nail Polish in Toffee Apple and Top Coat

I was recently introduced to Jacava Nail Polish, a new development in UK nail colour, these nail polishes are ‘8-free’ and non-toxic. Jacava Nail Polish does not contain any of the top 8 worrying chemicals found in regular nail polish – including Formaldehyde, Camphor, Toluene, DBP, Cellophane, Phthalates or Animal Ingredients, plus they are vegan-friendly and have undergone no animal testing. I chose to review Jacava Nail Polish in Toffee Apple* plus the clear Top Coat*. I chose Toffee Apple as it looked like a nice Autumn-y brown colour, however when it arrived I found it is more of a dark red colour, but it’s still lovely. It’s not as dark as Chanel’s popular Rouge Noir, but is probably more of an everyday wearable dark red colour. I have been wearing Toffee Apple on both my finger nails and my toes, the consistency of the polish is fairly liquid but this makes it nice and easy to apply and to get an even coat. I thought that this nail...
