BEAUTY: Montagne Jeunesse Black Raspberry Body Scrub

Browsing as one does through the beauty section in TKMaxx, I stumbled upon the Montagne Jeunesse Black Raspberry Body Scrub.

  

I was intrguied to try this product, purely because I only really know this brand for selling an extremely wide range of face masks… In the UK they tend to be found in most good supermarkets and pharmacists …. So at the mere price of £2.99.  I thought I should give it a try as my body scrub supply game is well and truely  lacking.

I’m absolutely in love with the scent of this body scrub.  It definitely smells like raspberries, to be more accurate very much like the ‘Frutella’ brand of sweets.  Not too over powering sweet though, the scent level is just right. 

  

The consistency of the product is extremely thick and creamy (not runny) a little goes a long way.  

The grains in the scrub resemble the grains on strawberries however I don’t believe they are as the packaging confirms its ‘jam packed with juicy and sweet Black Raspberries and Grape’.
  
The body scrub is suitable for vegetarians (vegetarian society approved!) and proudly mentions that it’s cruelty free.  Which is another plus!

This scrub definitely does a greatjob at  removing dead skin cells as my skin is smooth after use.

All in all I like this scrub for the fact that it does what it says, it smells great and, provides me with smooth skin after use.

Have you used Montagne Jeunesse products – which ones are your favourites?

Weleda Insight Day event

Yesterday was everything I expected it to be and more!

If you were following my Instagram and Twitter accounts I absolutely flooded my timeline with pictures and tweets about my attendance to the #Weledainsightdays.

As mentioned in this post I hinted about an exciting opportunity, and this was that… on Friday 13th June 2014 after a long day at work and a routine check of my inbox I stumbled upon an invitation to visit Weleda!  #Beyond pleased….#absolutely!

We were blessed with an absolute stunner for sunny weather yesterday, the invitation from Weleda advised to come casually dressed.  I opted to wear a crisp pale blue shirt with sleeves rolled up for a less formal look, paired with jeans (both pieces from Zara) and my comfy sandals (can’t remember where I got these from!).

I arrived on time for once, despite the traffic enroute being horrendous from where I live….

I arrived at the trademark pink Weleda building. Once I parked my car, registered, I received a very warm welcome from the staff at Weleda.  They are a real happy bunch of people (with amazing skin!), I figure it’s probably because they know they have pretty fabulous jobs working with amazing products in a beautiful setting and tranquil environment.

We received a friendly welcome from the Head of Marketing and the Itinary for the day – first stop a mini bus to Weleda fields.

We took a walk through the gardens where the flowers and plants are grown, and received a talk from one of the lead gardeners who was a fountain of information.

Back on the bus to the HQ and a spot of lunch…

We received a fun but educational talk on the differences between mineral oil vs natural oil with a chance to try and test the differences, we were also shown an apple which had been cleansed using a very well know brand – which made the apple blemished to show the effects of how harmful unnatural products can be to the skin…

Then we had a chance to start playing and testing existing and soon to launch Weleda products….

I cannot put into words, how impressed I was with the Weleda insight day, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and also got to meet a few other fellow bloggers which was also great too! 

To Weleda UK if you so happen to be reading this, thankyou so so much for allowing me the opportunity to visit, and learn some really invaluable information…
