A couple of weeks ago, Elemis invited a group of beauty bloggers to shopping channel QVC’s studios in Chiswick, west London for the arrival of their newest addition, the Evening Blooms Dry Body Oil and also a nosey around.
Elemis is one of my favourite spa and skincare brands – I can’t fault each and every one of their products I’ve tried and fallen in love with. And the bond Elemis has with QVC is very special since it reached out to millions of homes from its launch on the shopping channel’s screens in 1995.
It was an immensely fun evening of Elemis treats (I had the Shoulder-to-Scalp massage in their Intelligent Massage Chair – the first of its kind in the world – and it’s AMAZING at loosening knots and de-stressing tension from head to toe!). We also had a guided tour of the QVC studios and some of us had the chance to record a mock presentation. Thankfully they were fine about me not going through the ordeal for a second time. Here’s why.
As well as perusing Elemis’s top products (and I was amazed at how many I actually owned), the excitement was around the Evening Blooms Dry Body Oil. Its scent will knock you for six – in a good way! The oil is a blend of ylang ylang, vanilla, jasmine and osmanthus in a macadamia and kukui oil base and evokes the feeling of being in a spa from the comfort of your own home.
Now body oils are usually messy to deal with but this one is very light and absorbs into the skin instantly without a trace of greasy residue. Massage into your legs especially as well as as your arms and you will be mesmerised by the intoxicating fragrance.
In these freezing cold months your skin is prone to more dryness and the Evening Blooms Dry Body Oil replenishes lost moisture and relaxes you at the same time. It’s a 3 in 1 body, bath and massage oil, it’s British and it doesn’t test of animals either.
The bad news? Well it’s not available from Elemis directly and QVC were selling it exclusively for two days only last weekend. My bad for not letting you know sooner. I am quietly confident Elemis will make this amazing product available because at the moment it seems to be popping up on Ebay auctions (*frowns*).
In the mean time, I thought I’d share a selection of behind-the-scenes pictures of the QVC studios.
You can peruse Elemis’s online shop via QVC here but do stay tuned to the channel for exclusive offers from Elemis.
I’d like to take this opportunity to everyone at Elemis and QVC for their kind hospitality.
