I like to try and attend as many blogger events as I can in Glasgow but sometimes working 9-5 can make that a little difficult. Thankfully I’ve been on annual leave for the past week and when an invitation from Neal’s Yard Remedies appeared in my inbox about an event taking place on my week off, I knew I had to go! Neal’s Yard Remedies is a brand I’d heard about but never tried any of their products or ventured into their Glasgow store (quite frankly I had no idea where it was!) but I was so excited to pop along on Wednesday night and learn more about the company and their truly gorgeous products.
Once in the store and handed a glass of bubbly, it was time to learn more about the company from the lovely PR team and management staff whose passion and knowledge of the brand really was incredible to witness. If you didn’t already know about Neal’s Yard Remedies, it is a brand which focuses on everything natural and organic when it comes to skincare, bath & body, aromatherapy, remedies and even makeup. The beautiful scents that greet you when you walk into the shop are testament to this as all of the ingredients are so carefully chosen, and the shop itself is so nicely set out with plenty of testers and information about the products.
There was so much happening at the event, with superfood demonstrations, chats about specific skincare/bodycare needs, complementary body treatments and a relaxing hand massage to top it all off. I was lucky enough to receive a 15 minute back massage while I was there (I had no idea there were treatment rooms hiding downstairs) and it really was one of the best massages I’ve had!
We were also very lucky to be given a lovely goodie bag on our way out, and boy have I fallen in love with the products inside. I got to take home the Unwind Organic Aromatic Collection* which includes very generous sample sizes of the Aromatic Foaming Bath and Aromatic Body Butter – both of which have made my Sunday night pamper even more relaxing.
