The Body Shop: Beauty's Night Out

The Body Shop Lenox and The Branding Bar Presents....

Beauty's Night Out
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending a pretty darn, fun beauty event at The Body Shop in Lenox Mall. This was an invite that I could not pass up. I love The Body Shop products. I admire the fact that they do not test on animals, they have a huge impact on the environment, and how they make their customers feel good about themselves.


There were a wide variety of products showcased. The makeup bar (section) was awesome!
My daughter came along, and, while at The Body Shop, got a full face make over. According to her, the makeup wasn't heavy at all, and she felt beautiful in the 'true to color' application. She had a wonderful beauty expert  (Chantelle) working on her face; who was extremely knowledgeable about the makeup used. It had taken her no time! She was that good...




What impressed me was that she knew what colors worked for my daughter's complexion and skin type. 


Look how natural she looks!

There were various products shown to us. We even had the chance to try a few of them.


Take this Body Butter for instance...We tried the Shea Body Butter. It was light, non- greasy, and the fragrance was simply beautiful. This product was my absolute favorite.


We also got a whiff of these wonderfully fragrant sprays. The Body Mist...
My favorite? The Mango. The scent was just delicious! It wasn't heavy at all. I honestly have to go back to get a bottle.


And here we have their new Spa Fit product line which includes the Smoothing Refining Body Scrub, The Toning Concentrate, and the Toning Massage Oil.  Wonderful! You have to try it!



As far as a skin care product... Tea Tree line, which we were told is a product that is absolutely wonderful for your blemished skin. It's not harsh nor abrasive and that one the favorite products is the Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes; which helps minimize breakouts and tones your skin.


My daughter and I had a great time. And let me not forget the healthy snacks and really tasty spa water they were serving! Yum! Well, I didn't get any of the snacks, but that spa water was good.



The whole staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, genuine and knew how to make everyone feel welcome.

As the event came to a close, we were all given goodie bags....AWESOME goodie bags.


And they were their special edition bags...


With a special and sweet note inside.


The items in the bag...

All in One 'BB' Cream technically stand for 'Blemish Balm' or 'Blemish Base.' But this multi-functional cream is more than a simple spot solution. It's a fantastic natural-looking skin coverage and can be used either as a primer for make-up, or alone in the same way as a tinted moisturizer. However, I'm not sure if these are available online (or in stores) yet. But I can't wait to try it!



My favorite ... Shea Body Butter




Shea Beautifying Oil... which can be used on your body, face and hair.


Hemp Hand Protector... I just tried this product last night and I swear I have new hands! My hands are so much softer, and it's not greasy at all.


Vitamin E Cream ...haven't tried yet but will soon!



And of course there were some fab bloggers at the event!
