John Lewis Bloggers Event // 4.10.17

Everyone loves a pamper, right?

Well, I certainly do..

I'll start this post by apologising for my absence from blogging, but what better way to welcome myself back to it than with a post about the wonderful team at John Lewis, Newcastle.

I was very kindly invited to a night at the beauty retreat to sample all of the wonderful products, as well as receiving massages and treatments. 
Obviously, I was really excited!
(and it didn't disappoint)

We were welcomed with canap├ęs, macaroons (yum) and prosecco - perfect trio of edible wonderfulness to start the night out. 
The live music was just fab too, it really was one of those events that plays on your mind of the next couple of weeks. 
I keep having flash backs to the smells of relaxing oils and massages (which almost sent me to sleep)

So, lets talk about what and who I went to see:
Brow reshape and re-do - Benefit 
Talk and Facial booking - Origins
Relaxing oils massage - ESPA
Hot Cloth Treatment - Liz Earle


Firstly, Benefit.. who doesn't love benefit? 
Well, I am a definite convert when it comes to their brow products. 
I have to admit, I don't really spend a lot of time on my makeup in the mornings and I've never been able to perfect that perfect ombre brow BUT, I can faithfully say after a wonderful mini masterclass, I can finally do it! 
It was great, the products stayed on all night (I went out after the event), and I was really pleased with how they look. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Origins.. just amazing.
The products, the company and the fabulous ladies who work there. 
I love the all natural feel to the company, and they were so super friendly.
The Ginzing range is to die for, ALSO, can we just mention the ginger souffle! - if you haven't tried it, you really need to. It is absolutely gorgeous and leaves a gorgeous smell on your skin.
Kindly enough, after the introduction we received to all of the products that night, I was offered to book in and swing by for a mini facial.
I booked in for the week after and wow. 
I have really troublesome skin, but none of the products they used irritated my skin and it was left feeling smooth, refreshed and soft. 

*I will be doing a separate post about this so keep your eyes peeled! - It was really that good.

ESPA
If I could be a company, it would probably be this one. 
All natural, health inspiring, mind and body focused brand.
The massage was amazing. I was asked how I was feeling, whether I wanted to feel revived or calmed.
I chose calmed.. I'm a bit of a stress head so anytime an opportunity to relax arises, I jump at the chance. 
As expected, it didn't dissapoint. I was talked through all of the oils and products and really felt like the company cared about the wellbeing of the clients and customers. 
I will definitely be putting one of the candles on my christmas list!


Liz Earle
Hot cloth treatment.. definitely a must have item in your home.
I had a full face of makeup at the time so the treatment was tried on my hands but seriously.. after feeling how soft and kind it was on my skin, and literally seeing the effects of it, I understand why people put it on their faces. 
Again, like origins, I was offered to come back for another mini treatment.
My appointment is coming up soon and I literally can't wait. 



John Lewis - beauty retreat.
If you're in Newcastle, you really need to have a look in there. 
The brands and the team in there are just great, you won't be disappointed. 
As for the event, I feel very privileged to have been invited, it was an evening full of pamper, gorgeous smells and products. 

Thanks guys for a fab time x



*unfortunately I didn't get a chance to speak to anyone at Clinique, but this product was really fascinating and felt lovely on my skin!
