Last week I attended an event at The Body Shop hosted by The Bloggers Parlour's very own Abbigayle Warner. It was a great evening full of cocktails (mocktails for me) and pampering. As always, it's really great to get out and about and meet fellow bloggers and vloggers to share our interest in beauty.
I have always shopped in The Body Shop, they are a high street brand that have managed to stand the test of time - possibly because of their quality, affordability and ethical grounding. Whatever the reason, they have been around since I can remember. I tend to purchase from the skincare and bath ranges and occasionally use their fragrances. The Japanese Cherry Blossom scent is delish - love it. However what stole the show for me on the night was the new Instaglow CC creams that are launching on the 20th May. We were lucky enough to be given an exclusive sneak peak of these (another benefit of attending these type of events) and that is what I am going to share with you.

Colour correcting is very much in fashion in the beauty industry at the moment. And what I found great about these was that they are so easy to use and give such a flawless finish. The creams have been separated into light skin, light to medium and dark skin. However there is nothing stopping you using the light one as a highlighter if you are medium to dark skinned.
New release: The new Instaglow cc creams by the @thebodyshop will be launching 20th May. Swatches will be on the blog next week so keep a look out! #bblogger #bbloggers #blogger #beauty #beautyblogger #beautybloggers #ukblogger #bbloggersuk #makeup #makeupartist #makeupartistsworldwide #mua #birmingham #birminghamuk #colourcorrecting #cccream #glow #tan #spring #summer #thebodyshop
Another new release is the Honey Bronze Drops of Sun. This gives you a natural sun-kissed tan without the hefty air fare. All four items leave your skin glowing and perfect for the coming summer months. And at under £15 each are very affordable!
After browsing the shelves I had a thorough look through the makeup on offer and was really impressed by the range of products. Naturally, I made a few purchases! As I mentioned, I tend to purchase from the skincare and bath ranges, so usually by-pass the makeup section, but won't be making that mistake again. I was also lucky enough to be given a goody bag full of beautifully scented products. The Strawberry Body Butter is already one of my fave products, so that was a bonus!
