This post is a long time coming! Last week I was invited down to the rather gorgeous Hempel Hotel in London to view the new Autumn collection of Fragrance and Beauty from Next. I would hazard a guess that when you think of "Next" cosmetics don't exactly spring to mind straight away. However, these images and reviews may well just change that....
I reckon Next is definitely worth a scout about, especially when you're starting to think about buying for a certain festive season coming up... A lot of the products I reckon would make really great stocking fillers, especially this sweet manicure set from the Cashmere collection and I'm tempted to buy one of the men in my life (oi oi) the Neroli and Black Pepper Eau de Parfum in the Mens' range - yum!
Along with the rest of the bloggerati, I walked away with a kindly gifted goodie-bag, which I proceeded to leave at my mate's house for 2 weeks, hence the delay to this post, gah!
I was pretty giddy about the selection of goodies from The Collection, though because I'm a nice friend, I offered a body creme which the product image is above, to Kate, who put me up for the evening as a thankyou. Kate's quite a beauty product fiend, so I asked her to give me an honest review...
"Personally, I didn't like the smell - it absolutely honks. But it has a lovely iridescent shimmer, and is more gloopy than you'd expect from a sugar scrub. I usually prefer my scrubs to be quite gritty, but I found I liked the softness of this one."
I haven't tried the make-up yet (I am planning a separate post for that), but I've already had my Mum try to steal the diffuser from my bedroom TWICE - "but it would look so much nicer in the hallway!"
Thankyou Next for putting on such a fantastic evening! Roll on the 7th November for even more fun and fashion-related times! Have you lot ever tried any Next fragrances or cosmetics?
