#SoFragranceReveal


On Monday I attended the #SoFragranceReveal Press Day, held at London's IceTank to celebrate the launch of So...? Fragrance's new Body Mist range. Exclusive to Superdrug stores, these six brand new scents are sure to excite your senses with blends of aromatic floral and sweet fruit notes.

Vanilla Milkshake, Fresh Musk, White Petals, Floriental, Watermelon and Fruity

Vanilla Milkshake - A base note of vanilla with a playful mix of peach and plum.
Fresh Musk - A floral blend of jasmine and lily with top fruit notes of peach and mandarin.
White Petals - A base note of white musk complimented with bergamot, freesia and lily of the valley.
Floriental - My personal favourite! A creamy base of caramel topped with pear, apple, freesia and violet.
Watermelon - A sweet blend of watermelon, red berries and apple blossom with a base of sugar candy.
Fruity - A juicy mix of mandarin and peach with a subtle note of cedar wood.


The evening was filled with Summer feel good tunes, delicious themed mocktails, vegan canapes and adorable cupcakes!


Press and beauty bloggers alike sampled the new fragrances and enjoyed gorgeous manicures and endless fun in the floral photo booth.


Thanks so much to So...? for inviting me to this preview night, I had a lovely time. If you want to discover these new scents, the Body Mist range will be available in stores from Monday 26th September retailing at an affordable £3.99 each.

The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation

*PR sample

The Body Shop has always been a favourite of mine for all things bath and body but I have never thought to venture into their cosmetics range. This week I have been testing out the new Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation, a light weight, pillow soft base for the skin. My shade is 'Malawi Beach 03' which is a perfect match for my summer tan. Overall there are five shades to choose from but admittedly this is quite limited. I found this foundation gives sheer coverage which is perfect if you want a minimal make up look, although it is probably buildable to your preference. The consistency doesn't weigh down the skin and it feels barely there.

The only thing I wasn't too keen on was the applicator, I much prefer to use a brush when it comes to foundation. I like to buff in my base rather than pat it on, just to ensure an even complexion. Needless to say I'm quite impressed with this product and I will definitely consider more of the make up pieces The Body Shop as to offer.
