I had the pleasure of meeting the ladies behind Get the Gloss today at Liberty’s Brushes with Greatness event. The event is a week full of makeup tips, workshops, and demonstrations from beauty’s biggest names in the industry such as Susannah Taylor and Sarah Vine from Get the Gloss. The ladies today showed me some amazing products! A favourite was the Inner Strength Aroma Therapy Associates bath oil. The story behind it is just incredible. Geraldine Howard, co-founder and president of Aroma Therapy Associates is suffering from terminal illness and needed a mental kick of sorts, to release the tension and stress she experienced when going through treatments. She had been mixing oils for clients for years, and finally decided to do one with herself. So in her words: “I ended up with ‘Inner Strength’, a blend of Clary Sage and Frankincense to lift my spirits, Rosemary and Cardamom to give physical strength, Geranium to balance, Vetivert and Camomile to calm and finally Rose, which to me, is a like a ‘hug in a bottle’.” It’s an incredible story and Inner Strength is certainly on my list to purchase in the near future. 10% of all proceeds goes towards research, so if not for myself, I’ll purchase to contribute to a good cause.
I left the event today having met two iconic personalities in the beauty industry, goodie bag in hand, and a new beautiful lipstick – Icon by hourglass. The goodie bag includes: Liberty Rose handsoap, Glam cellulite formula (just in time for my trip to Asia hehe), Udo’s choice Omega 3/6 oil (YUM!!!), Eve Lom mask, NARS lip gloss pencil, Hourglass mascara, Trish McEvoy blush stick, Seche Vite polish topcoat, Rose Salve lip balm, Margaret Dobbs cuticle cream, Ren face milk, Rahua conditioner, and Decleor face cream. I feel spoiled, loved, and like I have enough beauty products to last a lifetime. I’m clearly not a beauty blogger/person but have a great appreciation for cosmetics/skincare/makeup and all it’s enthusiasts, which is why I thought it was worth posting this.
