Debenhams Summer Beauty Buzz

Last Thursday I had a truly lovely day in London attending a whole host of press days. I started my day with a real feast of beauty, and a mini celebration of all that is great about Summer, at the Debenhams Beauty press day, aka the Debenhams Beauty Buzz. This was a showcase for all that is new in Beauty for Summer, and also an excuse to try some new beauty products first hand.

The weather outside was glorious, almost like a summer day, and inside the press office at the Debenhams flagship store on Oxford Street there was a definite flash-forward to holiday season. Candy striped deck chairs sat invitingly (covered with a beach towel of course), whilst a giant ice cream cone attracted lots of attention and made for a perfect photo opportunity. There was a gorgeous barrow with all my favourite pick and mix sweets, and freshly squeezed lemonade and Cranberry juice, ideal for sipping through candy striped straws.

Inside the beauty room there were plenty of things to admire and experience, if you could pull yourself away from the ice cream machine. There were massages from Elemis, who were also showcasing some of their new products, including the Pro Collagen Super system. There were also beauty treatments including skin scanning from Balance Me, manicures and nail treatments from Nails Inc, make-up tips from Urban Decay, and information about lots of fake tanning programmes, perfect for those preparing for summer holidays, or just wanting to get the legs out after the winter cold.  There were also lots of new fragrances to try and test, and some brilliant new colours and make-up trends, including a gorgeous, irridescent nail colour from Calvin Klein that I just adored.

All in all, a fabulous event that was the perfect way to say that summer is most definitely on its way.
