Waitrose is one of my favourite supermarkets. What I didn’t know was how extensive their beauty range is – from the sheer amount and quality of the brands. Some I knew well, others I discovered on the night.
As well as the likes of Balance Me, Bee Good, Richard Ward, Neal’s Yard and Crabtree & Evelyn, Waitrose has its own range, with the quality you’d expect from the brand.
The fantastic Waitrose Heritage Collection has just launched with new fragrances and has hand washes, hand and body lotions, hand creams, body washes, bath washes and body butters.
My favourite blend is the Orchid & Honeysuckle version, which has the warm smell I look for in perfumes, body, bath and shower products.
Not only they feel great on the skin, have great fragrances and all the properties we expect from them, the packaging is also rather lovely.
They also have great gift packages, perfect for small gifts and stocking fillers.
Among the brands I discovered, Gisela Graham – my Christmas tree is laden with her decorations, but I had no idea she did beauty. Pretty as expected.
BRYT skincare has cleanser, serums and moisturisers. Plus, their lovely colourful packaging so caught my eye straight away.
Humble also impressed me with their honey based range with strong frankincense notes.
The event was held at the beautiful Waitrose Cookery School in London King’s Cross, which I had no idea existed, let alone that it was that fabulous.
Apart from sampling some of the amazing food devised by their chefs, I found out their classes are very affordable and cover a range of cuisines. And they do gift vouchers (hello, Christmas!).
So next time you are doing your food shopping, you might want to add one or two quality beauty products in there!
And that is just a small samples of what’s available. Waitrose beauty products are available in stores and online.
