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

The Harrods Glossybox



Hi Dolls,

I have to say, I think this box is one of my favourites from Glossybox. I wasnt too keen on the last one but this one is amazing! I was looking at the product card and all the items plus ones I didnt get in my specific box look so luxurious and right up my alley. Im sure most of you know about Glossyboxes by now and i've posted about them before but basically you can sign up and receive a box of about 5 product samples a month (Sometimes you get fully sized products) for £10.00 a month + p&p.

 I sadly wasn't able to attend the Glossybox event at Harrods (and missed out on macarons! sob) but to my surprise the morning after a man on a bike was knocking at my door and he handed me a big Harrods bag containing my Glossybox and a mini box of macarons! It was so nice of Glossybox to send over the box ^_^

 Back to the products though, so in my box I received;

- Versace Vanitas perfume sample
- Bliss body butter Blood orange & white pepper
- Clarins Extra-firming body cream - Burberry lip mist sample in Copper
- Re'Vive Intensive creme lustre (Which would normally cost £235! *faints*)

 I'm really happy with what I received, I think my favourites in the box would be the mini Burberry lipstick (Very sheer and glossy) and the Clarins body cream as i've always wanted to try something from clarins!

 I hope you guys found this post interesting and a massive thank you to Glossybox!

 Sammi xoxo
