Neal's Yard Remedies Event

A
few weeks ago I was invited to attend the Neal’s Yard Remedies
bloggers event, and so I gratefully accepted and couldn’t wait to go
after work last night! After finding out my good friend Fi (North
Western Beauty
)
and the lovely Cat (CLLRS),
who I met properly for the first time at the FABB Event, were going
too, I was even more excited, and arranged to meet up with them for a
bite to eat before we headed down to the Neal’s store.

Of
course Google maps was no help at all, but I put my intrepid explorer
hat on, and after taking a few “short cuts” we found it. As soon
as you walk into the store you’re hit with a real sense of calm and
tranquillity, as well as a lovely fresh and floral scent, and the
ladies at the door were extremely welcoming. We were offered drinks
straight away, a God send with this hot weather, with wine, herbal
teas and juice on offer. I opted for the juice, as I’m not a lover
of wine or herbal tea even though they smelled delicious!

Free
taster sessions were available for all the bloggers that attended, so
me, Fi and Cat all got our make up done. Me and Fi chose the same
look and it’s strange how different it looked on each of us, me
being pale with blue eyes and Fi being slightly more olive toned with
brown eyes. I have to say I do prefer more coverage than the mineral
powder offers from Neal’s Yard, as my skin is prone to a few
blemishes etc. The way the shadow was applied to my eyes by the MUA
was great; it just wasn’t the best look for me! Cat also got a
massage towards the end of the night and it was quite amusing to
watch, even though I knew if that was me being massaged I would have
fell asleep straight away, especially when she moved onto her head!

At the
end of the night we were all given a lovely goodie bag, with a
cleansing balm, mist spray, eyeshadow, lipgloss and a pack of wipes
included. Thank you!

Overall
I had a great night, being able to catch up with the lovely Fi and
Cat, and learning a lot about organic skincare and what it offers off
the welcoming and knowledgeable staff. I’d definitely recommend
visiting the Manchester store, with it only being 5 minutes away from
the City Centre.

Have
you tried anything from Neal’s Yard Remedies? What did you think?

Thanks
for reading,
