Our last post for the ‘event weekend’ is from Neal’s Yard Remedies. We were very excited to be invited to the pamper party happening in Bristol this week, and after a bit of a delay getting completely lost (oops!) we eventually arrived at the apartment where the party had already started.
The lovely Sue was giving a demonstration facial which was really interesting as we could pick up on tips and tricks and see the products in action.
One of the new products on the scene with NYR is the Frankincense Intense Concentrate, which is basically a concentrated version of the Frankincense Intense cream and is a best seller for its effects already. The concentrate is a serum type product which promises to deliver even more of a punch than it’s original product. The concentrate will retail at £65 for 30ml compared to the original cream which is £55 for 50ml.
It was lovely to be hands on with the products as they were being used and we had the most moisturised and best smelling hands in the whole of the UK after we’d finished testing everything!
They had the whole range there including cleansers, toners, mists, serums and creams galore. We also tried out some of their other products including roller balls with essential oils and body butters.
We were very lucky to leave with a goodie bag with a full size pot of the Wild Rose Beauty Balm. As you can see from the gift bag and packaging of the balm itself, it’s currently celebrating its 10th Anniversary and so has a special design by Alice Shields. I absolutely love that they’ve done this and the packaging is gorgeous, although it’s still NYR with its blue glass pot it has a gorgeous flowery label covered in bright colours.
After playing with all the products i have been making an extensive wishlist for future purchases. Having recently been to an interview where it turns out I’d be involved in animal testing I have been looking at things a little differently. We love products that are ‘free from’ and NYR definitely have that covered by the endless list of awards and accolades that you can find on their website here, it is seriously impressive.
They also as a rule never test on animals, so not only are they free from all the chemical nasties they also don’t partake in unnecessary actions to develop their products which is great. I can definitely see my skincare shifting towards NYR a lot faster than expected!
It surprised me how many products NYR have in their books; not only the skincare and other products of the same kind, but also a make up range, superfood and tea range, and remedies and therapies section too.
We had a lovely evening and would like to thank Sue and Jessica for a fun and informative evening!
We even grabbed a few cans of Pimms to drink on the train back to Cardiff to finish off our night!
