The Loreal labs

Hey dolls,
Last friday I had the AMAZING chance to go to Paris (I know what you're thinking haha) with Loreal to see their new labs where they carry out alot of research and develop their hair products, We then went to see the Loreal hair exhibition and after we sipped on cocktails just before boarding the Eurostar again to head home =]

Just arrived at Gare du nord, waiting for the mini-van

Macaroons and nibbles as we got ready to tour the labs

In the afro-carribean hair section, samples of the different curn patterns (Mine is the 6th one along from the left!)

Testing the hair products on the hair before they go into production at the labs

Gemma, Fleur, Myself and Gracie outside the fancy & beautiful building where we had cocktails!

They had massive trays of veg and dips, I wished i had this at home!

I had such an amazing time, It was so interesting to see everything that goes into creating hair products, seeing all the different stages & how much research is required.

We received an amazing goodie bag after the trip which was so nice of them! You may see me feature some of the products in up-coming posts, Loving some of them already.

If you would like to see me chin-wagging about the whole thing plus footage from the day I shall post my video about it below =]

Hope you are all well,

Sammi xoxo

Hi Sammi, I drove past the L'Oreal labs in Paris on my last holiday there. I shuddered. Did they show you the animal testing areas? In case you didn't know L'Oreal are one of the few cosmetic companies left who still test on animals. They've been getting a lot of boycotts from bloggers recently. Just wondered your thoughts on this. Niamh www.themamashipblog.com
