A couple of weeks ago I attended a Neal's Yard bloggers event in their Central Arcade store in Newcastle. I was really intrigued to learn more about a brand I didn't really know much about, and really excited to have a catch up with some local bloggers. 

The store is really cute and packed full of beautiful products... it's like an Aladdin's Cave for beauty bloggers! The store has been open for 17 years, and they have recently opened a new one in Eldon Square. If you're looking for a really nice shopping experience with helpful and very knowledgable staff I can't recommend the Central Arcade shop enough, there's such a nice authentic feel to it.

Neal's Yard are a British brand who believe that health and beauty products should be natural and the ingredients should be organic and ethically sourced. They say that by living a natural, holistic, healthy way of life, your life can be transformed, and their products really represent that.
The product range was something that really surprised me; there was an array of skincare, bath products, hair care, aromatherapy oils , all of which I was expecting, but there were also men's products, herbal remedies and makeup, plus some lovely gift sets with candles, incense and more - ideal for Christmas!
The makeup range was something I had no idea about, but definitely want to try out some of the products The lipsticks really caught my eye, especially the 'Blackberry' shade and the brushes looked and felt lovely too.

We were all told a bit about the brand and pointed in the right direction of some products that would work for our own skin types whilst we mingled and sipped fresh fruit juices, champagne and nibbled on mince pies and mini cakes.
If you ever get the chance to attend a Neal's Yard event, or even just visit your local store, I really recommend you do.
I'll be featuring some products that I picked up at the event on here really soon.
