Fenwick Newcastle Beauty Week

Fenwick is one of my favourite places to shop in Newcastle. I'm in there pretty much every weekend actually! I'm always sneakily walking past the Michael Kors concession wanting to add a third bag to my collection. There's just so many different departments with so much choice, it's easy to spend hours in Fenwick! Anyway, the main reason I usually head to Fenwick is for their amazing beauty hall. They have so many fab brands under one roof. They stock lots of high end brands like Dior, Chanel, Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Clarins, Benefit Cosmetics as well as having two MAC concessions. In fact, Fenwick is the only place to buy MAC in Newcastle.

Other highlights of the beauty hall include their huge fragrance section, L'Occitane, Kiehl's, Molten Brown, Topshop Makeup, Nails Inc, Jo Malone, Rituals, Neom, Melvita, REN, Bomb Cosmetics and so much more!

I think I could talk about Fenwick for hours but I must get on to the reason for this post! Fenwick Newcastle are holding a Beauty Week from Monday 12 May to Saturday 17 May to help you revive your makeup, skincrare and bodycare regimes for Spring. There will be lots of events going on in the beauty hall including daily live beauty demonstrations, makeup and skincare masterclasses, new product launches, luxury gift with purchase and visiting makeup artists.

To keep up to date with all of the goings on for Beauty Week and beyond, you can check out their Facebook page here and their Twitter page here. They also have an Instagram here.

Fenwick kindly gifted me a goody bag containing 7 of their favourite picks for Summer so I thought I'd show you what I got as you can see there is a wide range of different products available at Fenwick.

The Kiehl's Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub in Grapefruit is one of the nicest body scrubs I've ever tried. The scent is so fresh and fruity, brilliant for getting you in the mood for Summer! It contains the perfect amount of scrubbing particles to gently exfoliate the skin. It's also quite creamy which means your skin isn't left feeling stripped after use.

The Clarins Tonic Bath & Shower Concentrate is a real pleasure to use. It's a thick, luxurious gel that has a very invigorating scent. It feels so refreshing to use in the morning with it's mint and herbal scent that makes me take deep breaths as I want to breathe it all in! It also feels very moisturising on the skin.

I've tried the Rituals Foaming Shower Gels before and I really like them. A little bit goes a long way and it doubles up as a shaving foam! They are available in lots of different scents and this T'ai Chi one smells so refreshing with the White Lotus and Green Tea.

BONBON is a new fragrance by Viktor & Rolf and it's absolutely perfect for me! I'm a massive lover of sweet scents and this fits right into that category. Despite its sweet scent, it isn't a young, tacky scent, it's a sophisticated one with notes of caramel, mandarin with woody base notes of sandalwood and cedarwood. I would compare it to the Prada Candy perfumes which I also love. How cute is the bow shaped bottle too?!

The Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Enriching Hand Lotion is so nice for the warmer months. It feels quite light yet it's still really nourishing on the skin. It has a nice delicate scent that isn't going to interfere with your perfume but it still smells so good if you happen to sniff your hands!

I've wanted an EOS Lip Balm for so long but they only seemed to be available in London so I had to make do with imitation versions but now they are being stocked in Fenwick Newcastle! Yay! This is such good news and I can't wait to see what other varieties they have. I've got the Pomegranate & Raspberry one and I love the fruity scent. I love the design of the packaging and it's great being able to swipe the balm straight on to the lips instead of having to dip your fingers into a pot which can be a bit gross if you are out and about with no facilities to wash your hands first!

The final, and very exciting product, is the Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara. This is a brand new mascara from Dior and it doesn't actually launch until May 28 so watch out for this one. I'm going to do a proper review on this one very soon but let's just say, it's good, real good!
