I know Mother’s Day has come and gone already but I could not help sharing some photos I took at the Body Shop #TreatMumLikeaQueen event I attended almost 2 weeks ago. The Body Shop has been absolutely incredible with their new launches. Everything from their packaging to the quality of their products have been amazing and I can't wait to see what new launches would be popping up this year. I am particularly a huge fan of how they have revamped their packaging as the products just look so pretty in my bathroom and dresser.
They recently launched their British Rose range to celebrate Mother’s Day and I was invited to celebrate its launch. The exciting thing about this event was that Mums were invited along to this event and I thought that was incredibly amazing. I would have loved to bring my Mum along but she currently lives in Nigeria. However, my lovely friend and flatmate came along with me and we had the most incredible time as she is such a huge Body Shop fan. The event was essentially a pamper day complete with skincare consultations, makeovers, massages and a Nail Bar alongside some nibbles and drinks.
The event was held in the Body Shop Soho Store in Oxford Street around 7pm and you all now I love evening events. It means I can just pop on over after work and it's just a perfect way to end my day.We made our way over to the event nice and early and were warmly welcomed with some delicious canapés and drinks. The canapés were so delicious and they are definitely my favourite nibbles at events.
After some nibbles, I made my way over for a quick massage because it is seriously one of the best massages I have ever received. I had one at the Body Shop Christmas event last year and It was so amazing so I knew instantly that I wanted an encore. I have no idea how the ladies do it butevery single muscle in my body felt super relaxed that I may have fallen asleep. It was not just me, everyone who made their way to the massage section came out feeling super refreshed and relaxed. Soon it was time for the introduction of the British Rose range which I had briefly seen in store.
British Rose Overview
Roses are generally associated with romance, love and femininity and rightly so because they are so beautiful and delicate at the same time. The roses used in the British Rose range are organic and hand picked and they are air dried and infused to get the purest form of rose essence. According to The Body Shop, the range is designed to provide a beautiful glow to the skin while upping hydration levels. One thing I love about this range (and on first impression) is that the roses are not overpowering at all. They provide a soft scent that's not too light or too heavy; it's just hits the right spot. I believe there are eight products in the British Rose body care range and they include: Instant Glow Body Essence*, Instant Glow Body Butter*, Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub, Eau de Toilette*, Exfoliating Soap, Shower Gel*, Petal Soft Bath Foam* and Petal Soft Hand Cream. They are also some makeup in the range including the British Rose Cheek and Eye Palette* and the Lip and Cheek Stain* (Bright Peony) and the Color Crush Nail Color* (British Rose 350) which are all absolutely amazing.
I always enjoy Body Shop presentations as they are really well made and filled with amazing visuals that brings everything to live. I actually did not watch this entire presentation as I was having my massage done but I was listening and it was very relaxing. Massage + listening to an amazing new launch = Bliss!! Once the presentation was done, I and my friend went over to the skincare consultation area where we learnt more about some new products. There were also a lot of gifts available for purchase with good value for money. I believe most of these gifts are still available so you can still pop in and purchase them.
It was amazing seeing some many happy mums, aunties, sisters and friends having a beautiful time with their daughters/nieces, etc. I thought it was the most beautiful thing ever and all the Mums felt genuinely happy at the wonderful event getting their pamper on. I have to say all the Body Shop Sales Associates who work in the Soho Store are super helpful and you can tell they are very passionate about what they do. I even managed to get a little hand/arm massage which was amazing. I also got to play around with the Body Shop Drops of Youth Mask and I know it would be making its way to my stash come pay day. We took more photos and had more nibbles and drinks. It was a super relaxing event and soon it was time to go home.
I was gifted with a generous goody bag filled with the new British Rose Range (body care, makeup and nail polish) which I would be reviewing separately after I have tested them out. My friend was also gifted with a box of British Rose goodies which she adores. The box looks so lovely and it would make a perfect gift for anyone who loves the range or Body Shop goodies. We had an incredible time and a Big Thank you to Rakuten and Body Shop for inviting me to this amazing event. It totally made our Mother’s Day!! Have you tried any products from the Body Shop British Rose range?
