Everyone who knows Fashion-Mommy knows that Bodhi is one of my favourite brands for real pampering luxury. Using all natural products and ingredients, Bodhi encapsulates the spirit of natural beauty in their fabulous range of bath and beauty therapies. So when an invitation popped through the door to attend a very special launch of a super special product, the Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oi,l I just knew there was no way I would be missing this!
The launch took place last week at the gorgeous Les Senteurs, deep in the heart of central London, just a stone’s throw from Marble Arch. This beautiful setting was perfect for a brand that frankly smells as good as Bodhi, and the fragranced bubbles that were being blown around the room (you pop them with your nose to inhale the scent) was a decadent touch. Bodhi mastermind, the wonderful Elijah Choo, was resplendent in a rose coloured shirt that set the tone beautifully for the product that was being launched, and with the prettiest bouquets of pink tea roses, and pink fizz in the glasses – a rosy atmosphere was insured.
There was also a fantastic opportunity to meet some lovely bloggers, these included Moll from Molly and the Princess, Gemma from Buff Beauty.com and Rose from Frock-Star. And then it was over to Elijah to introduce the new product and answer all our questions.
Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face oil is something of a departure for Bodhi, moving into active skincare for the first time. The product has a range of inspirations, from the climbing rose with no thorns that grows in Elijah’s garden, to the shifting dark sands of the Sahara desert – a bowl of which Elijah had on display at the launch. The oil also contains the best of natural ingredients, including a range of different ingredients – from Bulgarian Damask Rose Otto, blended with Moroccan Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil. The scent, as you can imagine, is awesome – so delicate and yet lingering and totally beautiful. I had a little on my hand and found it difficult not to keep sniffing it…
So, what is the oil actually like? I was very happy to have a facial using the product in order to experience it for myself. And the first thing I notice is that a little goes a long way. You only need to pour a little into your hands, and then rub together in order to warm the oil. It can then be massaged into the skin, with the best results coming if this is tied into your current beauty regime after toning, and before moisturisation. I was surprised at how the skin absorbed it so easily, without leaving stickiness or shine. And I loved the beauty tip that any excess could be rubbed into the cuticles or on the tips of your hair, making this a multifunctional luxury. After my mini facial, my skin felt instantly softer, giving you that feel good boost we all need at some point in the day.
All in all, this was a fantastic launch event, which was the perfect blend of pampering, information and bubbly! A gorgeous Bodhi goodie bags containing some of the wonderful Jasmine falls bath therapy and lotion, AND the brand new Desert Rose Oil was the icing on the cake of a perfect night.
