The Body Shop Middlesbrough Seize The Summer Event

I was very kindly invited along to The Body Shop Middlesbrough a couple of weeks ago to their 'Seize the Summer' event, along with 7 other local bloggers to have a little look at their new Limited Edition Virgin Mojito Range for the Summer. I'm a massive fan of The Body Shop as a brand, I think their skincare is amazing quality and really affordable, and their Body Butters.. well I think they can speak for themselves.

When we arrived we were greeted by Clare and her lovely ladies with Hawaiian necklaces, cups of mojito and a table full of snacks, ice lollies and vanilla frappes. The whole shop felt so bright and summery, and if that wasn't enough, they came in a few minutes later with big strawberry slushes for each of us. Bonus! We got to have a good look around and chat with the staff about all the products that interested us and they gave us a talk through of the new Virgin Mojito range which, FYI, smells exactly like twister lollies. Yummehh! The range comes in the form of Shower Gel, Body Scrub, Body Butter, Body Sorbet & Body Splash. They were saying in the shop it's like Happy Hour for the skin. It smells so fresh and summery I reckon people are gonna be begging for it to come back every summer! I also had a chat with a couple of the girls about their skincare and what would work best for me and I got a sample of the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet & their new Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask which I absolutely ADORE and need the full size asap!!

We then had a go of the lucky dip to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. I put a donation in and picked out a little White Musk Minis set - cute!. To finish the day off, we were all given goody bags to take away which were housed in bright milkshake cups filled with some summery goodies and one of the new Mojito Body Butters. Clare and her team did the whole store proud and were so good to us.

Massive thanks to Clare and the team at The Body Shop Middlesbrough for the massive effort they put into the whole event. You'll be sure to see me back again soon.

  3. I'm so glad Middlesbrough is starting to have blogger events! I've just moved back here from Uni and I was worried nothing would be going on for bloggers! It looks like you had a great time and the Virgin Mojito range sound so perfect for summer! I'm going to have to pop in soon and smell it :)
