Chalk PR event

I was kindly invited to an event hosted by Chalk PR event to promote the companies they represent. Most of the creators were there so we could find out more about the brands and the products they had to offer.


Blooming Babe is a natural range created for mothers to be. The range has some very luxurious face and body care products, including a 'genie in a bottle oil cleanser' which is an oil based water soluble cleanser that removes make up and dirt without stripping the skin's natural protective barrier and 'glow papaya enzyme mask' which contains salicylic acid and fruit extracts to gently exfoliate the skin and leave it radiant.


Elizabeth's daughter is aimed at young girls and women with sensitive skin and features a range of 95% natural and gentle skincare products to help keep the skin blemish free. One of my favourite products from this range is the 'purifying mask' which claims to purify the skin and help eliminate toxins, something that is much needed atm!

He-Shi is a tanning range designed to give a natural and easy tan for both males and females. Most of the products are tinted allowing you to see where you've applied the tan and helping to prevent streaks. Some of the products in this range include an Exfoliating bodywash, Express liquid tan and a Fusion multi bronzer. I've been meaning to buy a tinted fake tan after a Dove summer glow disaster so was really pleased to find the liquid tan in my goodie bag. Look out for my review soon.

Purity is a brand that offers organic skincare without the huge price tag. It was launched in 2009 and is currently exclusive to Superdrug. The range is 98% natural and on average 82% organic and includes products such as face wash, scrub, serum and several moisturizers. I first came across Purity at the Superdrug event and was given a sample of the serum to try out. I've been using if for the last few weeks and will be reviewing soon.


One brand that I was really excited about was Bumble and Bumble, as I've seen a lot of their products in magazines. They've recently brought out a thickening serum which claims to plump the individual strands of hair giving fuller hair over time. I have long fine hair so am really excited about trying this to see if it gives me thicker hair!


We were also briefly introduced to Korres which is a Greek brand that offers naturally derived face, hair and body products and Tommy Guns which has a range of shampoos, conditioners and styling products.

Another brand at the event was Cosmetics a la carte, a make up company that also offers custom blending. Unfortunately I had to leave early so didn't get a chance to find out more about the brand.

Hope this post was interesting and useful, sorry its so long!
