The Body Shop VIP Pre-Mother's Day Pamper Night!



Last Tuesday, I attended The Body Shop's Pre-Mother's Day Pamper Night. This was a paid ticket event; tickets were $25 each, but there were only ten spots available for each location across Australia, so you had to be super quick to get one! I thought the price tag was quite reasonable given the fact that each guest was to receive a Goodie Bag valued at just over $100. I jumped at the chance, snapping up a ticket toot sweet!





The hour-long event was informative, fun and a lovely way to spend an evening. I went by myself and was happy to see a couple of other ladies arrive alone, as I thought everyone else would buy two tickets and come with a friend. Having only ten guests meant it was quite an intimate evening, and we were easily able to speak one-on-one with staff throughout the night. We were treated to a glass of champagne on arrival, as The Body Shop staff welcomed us and explained the evening, which was the launch of their new British Rose Body Care Collection. There was also a plate of colourful macarons near the bubbly, but we weren't offered one and from what I could see nobody took one! I'm still trying to work out if they were real or fake ones for decoration. Haha!





We got to spend about 20 minutes at each of the manned stations, and interact and play with the products, which was fun! My first stop was the makeup application station. I wore a full face of makeup on the night (and don't like people doing my makeup anyway!) so I used the opportunity to ask questions about their makeup line and swatch like a mofo. I loved their new Lip & Cheek Stains and the palette was super-pretty. I thought I didn't own much The Body Shop makeup but was shocked to learn I own both of their eyeshadow quads!







Next stop was a personal skincare consultation. I was asked the standard questions about my skincare concerns and instructed to place two little tabs on my forehead and cheek to determine my skin type (normal/combination - interesting, because I used to be oily, then oily/combination, so clearly my skin is getting drier with age). Then the Consultant collected some products from their ranges that would address my skincare concerns (fine lines and breakouts) and ran through them with me whilst trying them out on my hand. Afterwards, my 'treated' hand was so soft and pampered; I could really feel the difference between my two hands. I was given a skincare consultation leaflet with my personalised regime inside, which showed which products would be most suitable for my skin.





Last stop was the pampering station, where the origins of the British Rose Body Care line was explained and we were given a chance to try out all the products from this brand new range. I went to town, spritzing this, dabbing that and rubbing in the other. The fragrance is floral, feminine and lovely; I'm a huge Lush RoseJam fan, so British Rose is right up my alley!





We also received an exclusive shopping offer of 20% off if we bought two or more products. I felt rushed as the night came to a close, and completely forgot to buy my Tea Tree Toner (which I had planned to get, as mine is practically finished)! Instead I bought a Watermelon Lip Balm (love it!) and some bath gloves which I have yet to try. On the plus side, with the discount this only set me back $11 give or take a few cents! I collected my Goodie Bag and off I went. My prediction was that it would contain small versions of the entire British Rose collection, but I was wrong! Check out the contents of the Gift Bag; it's a nice mix of products that I can't wait to try out!
