Bloggers' Festival Goody Bags

Now that I've had the chance to sort through all the amazing goodies we were gifted at the Bloggers Festival, hosted by Scarlett on September 5th, I thought I would share with you some of what we were lucky enough to walk away with.

I'm sure we all looked hilarious making our way home from London with all these bags - it was certainly interesting getting on the tube, I can tell you that for certain - but I was overwhelmed by the amount of products we were gifted, so that we could give them a go. There were so many brands at the event that I hadn't heard of before, as well as some that I was familiar, and I can't wait to try everything out!

So many goodies
The heaviest items in our goody bags from Scarlett were these two full size bottles of shampoo from OGX. I always see this brand in Boots, and I've tried a few of their different products, so I was really excited to get to try some more of their products. My hair is really fussy with shampoo at the moment, so hopefully one of these works wonders!
I haven't tried either of these before
There were loads of little products in our goody bags, but I'm particularly looking forward to trying out this Vita Min Fix 24-Hour Facial Cream and the Fruit Scrub Exfoliator from Green People - a brand I've never heard of, so this excites me. I'm also looking forward to using the Deep Heat Muscle Rescue cream. Having had a shoulder injury in my second year of university - not alcohol fuelled I promise - Deep Heat and I are good friends, and after carrying all these bags around, I was glad to have some!
Some other skincare items I picked up on the day were this Bravura London Dermaflannel, and a Bee Good Cream Cleanser and Muslin Cloth. I received one of these Bee Good cleansers in my Southampton Meetup goody bag, although I haven't got round to trying it yet - now I have two, which will be fab if I fall in love!

The Perfume Shop were around, handing out samples of Paco Rabanne perfume Olympéa, which I popped straight into my goody bags. I've used this a few times, and it's such a beautiful scent. We were also given samples of BareMinerals Lash Domination mascara, and oh my goodness, it's glorious!

The ladies at Mode Media had so many goodies to hand out, all with their logo on. We had a choice of t-shirt, and I went with the "Fierce Mode", and I also picked up a notebook, a lip balm and a pencil.

Brodie and Stone gave us a selection of their skincare and haircare items. I'm always on the lookout for new items in these areas, so I can't wait to give all these a try.

Our personal mini consultations with Exuviance meant we walked away with a few goodies tailored to our skin type. I am so excited to try out the Purifying Cleansing Gel and the Hydrating Eye Complex. I already gave the Blemish Treatment Gel a go, and that seemed fab!

Small Man Media represent a range of stationery brands, and we were lucky enough to be given a selection of goodies. I got these awesome coloured pens - which will be perfect for my colouring book - a little notebook, and a great selection of Smiggle gel pens.

I was so excited when I was announced as a winner of one of the Bon Prix goody bags. I love the wooly hat they gifted me, and cannot wait for the weather to get cold enough for me to wear it. Prizewinners were also lucky enough to be gifted some little bits, including some hot chocolate, dry shampoo, and a nail varnish!

Thank you to Scarlett for organising such a great event, and putting together the amazing goody bags, and to the other brands who gave out their own goody bags.
Until next time,
