Last Thursday I was invited down to Newcastle with a bunch of other brilliant bloggers to check out the new Wild Argan Oil range by The Body Shop. I had already heard so much about this range but refused to try it out in store until this day, just to retain the hype! And wow, wasn’t it just amazing.
The Wild Argan Oil line is originated from the ingredients in Morocco, where the oil is harvested by hand. The oil is hand picked, dried for 4 months then separated through a machine to reveal the argan nuts. The core of the nut where the oil is found, is hand cracked, then fed through a machine that squeezes out the oil. The remainder is used for animal feed, fertiliser and other materials so its actually a really efficient recyclable process. It’s then left in big containers for 2 weeks then filtered to show the finished oil. This process is very very long but amazing how it’s produced. For more about the way Argan Oil is extracted, check out Fleur De Force’s visit to Morocco here.
Back to The Body Shop…
We were welcomed by a lovely glass of bubbly followed by an amazing hand massage using products from the Argan range including the Rough Scrub, Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Radiant Oil. All of these products and the others in the range smelt divine, and by far one of my favourite scents The Body Shop sell in their product line. Whilst I was thoroughly enjoying my hand massage, some of the girls had their makeup done by one of the Body Shop professionals, and it ended up being a really fun day! It was great learning about the products and how they are made.
After browsing through the store and checking out all the new skincare and body care products, the day came to an end. My favourite out of the Wild Argan range is definitely the Body Butter by far! Its silky, smooth and leaves your skin feeling nourished and radiant. I will be testing out the range over the next couple of weeks and releasing a full review so stay around for that! Why not have a trip down to The Body Shop Newcastle this week and try the range yourself?
For now, thanks for reading! xx
