Last Thursday, I was invited to The Body Shop event in One Utama Shopping Centre. This event is in conjunction with the Chinese New Year & Valentine’s Day celebration, the show stopper of the day is the launching of The Roots of Strength & The Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss sweet fragrances.
The very first impression when I entered The Body Shop outlet was festivity! Every corner was decorated with Chinese New Year decorations and the theme blended well with Valentine’s Day hence it was a mix of bright pink and red color. All of The Body Shop staff and event coordinators were beautifully dressed in a cheongsam (a traditional Chinese dress). The Chinese people have a very interesting culture in Malaysia and it is believed that the color red symbolizes good fortune and joy.
With Valentine around the corner, it was a great way to showcase their new Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss sweet fragrance! Don’t we all know that pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others?
I was greeted with ginseng and ginger tea, butter biscuits, macaroons, strawberry fruit, and yummy cakes. It was like a perfect evening hi-tea with too much goody sweetness. The table was beautifully arranged and what I adore the most is each of the staff had a warm smile that made me felt comfortable throughout the event.
At the beginning of the event, I was talked through by Cherryl about their new products, ‘The Roots of Strength‘ and the goodness it gives to our skin. It was fascinating to know that this product is enriched with 3 root extracts: ginger from Madagascar, ginseng from China and Ruscus from Europe and Community Trade Soy Oil from Brazil. The best part of all this product is formulated without mineral oil, paraffin, and silicone. They come in 3 combos of firming shaping essence lotion, serum, and cream.
There was also a mini pamper therapy session for all guests to enjoy a quick hand massage using their very own hand creme. It was also quite insightful for me because I learned how to massage my hands the correct way. The time just goes far too quickly and before I left, I have gifted a bag filled with their products and this came in as a surprise. I couldn’t be happier to receive this bag of surprise and be part of this celebration!
