Event: Neal's Yard Remedies

Beauty Blogger events in Glasgow are like buses - you wait for ages for one and then two happen within 48 hours of each other with another two lined up in the next few weeks! I went to Neal's Yard Remedies on Thursday 15th, and Paul's Hair and Beauty World on Saturday 17th. I'm going to do a separate post for Paul's event (click here for it) so here's the low down on Neal's Yard Remedies Event!

I was invited to an informal evening to be introduced to this brand and have a general look around their store. The staff were so friendly and informative, and I learnt a lot about a brand I had previously little knowledge of. It was a lovely little evening!

NYR are, in a nutshell, an organic skincare and aromatherapy company that specialises in all-over holistic wellbeing. They don't test on animals and use only natural ingredients. What makes them different, to me, is that they offer almost a 'prescription service' - if you go in with a skin/hair/body woe, they can sort you out with a specific product or range of products. They also do therapies such as massages, so you can destress in store! Which is very cool.

I met up with Paula, Lisa and Laura there (click their names to check their blogs) and we enjoyed they prosecco and cheeses (maybe a bit too much haha) and had a general good catch up. We were also all treated to a taster massage - which was very relaxing. :)

Right now NYR is a little out of my budget, but it's definitely a place I'd go to for a special skincare treat. They've also introduced a range of organic cosmetics, which is right up my street! They have a really interested history and there's actually a lot more branches than I realised! You can also shop online here.
They were so generous with their goodybag:
I got a full size Wild Rose Beauty Balm which is an award winning nourishing, exfoliating and cleansing balm (compete with muslin cloth). I can't wait to give this a try! I also received Organic Facial Wipes and two pieces from their new cosmetics range - Mineral Eye Shadow in Silver Birch and an Organic Lip Gloss in Goji Berry.

How amazing?! I don't really have a silver eyeshadow so will be making good use of this, and the ladies in store mentioned it also works really well applied wet. The lipgloss looks gorg - little iridescent flecks of pink and gold are in it and it's really nourishing! Thanks, guys! :)
Have you ever tried any NYR products? Do you like reading about events?
Let me know!

  1. I love Neal's Yard Remedies but don't often have the budget to try them!

    1. The products looked so nice, but it'd be a treat rather than an essential! =p

  5. Hey Eve maria, we deal with cosmetics and beauty care products which are cheaper compared to our competitors, but we are the market leaders due to its quality. Please try it out - Facial Masks for Acne

  6. I used to be a bit hesitant when it cam to beauty supplies and natural remedies. My niece had a grown on her lip from birth but my brother and his wife just left it... for years. She got into a terrible patch of weeds that the skin on her face had a reaction to and was heavily burned. I kid you not, with some essential oils that I believe were bought from not only did the burn heal up without a trace, the lip growth shrunk into nothingness. I am now officially a believer!


Please leave me any comments/questions you have! I looove getting feedback and always reply asap. Thanks! ^_^ <3
