Last Tuesday I was lucky enough to be invited down to London to the Pegasus Healthy Beauty Showcase. The event promoted a healthier more natural approach to beauty and gave a few brands the chance to show off their newest products.

The first stand I came across was COLLECTION. They were promoting several new products, some of which I was able to take home to try. Next month COLLECTION will be releasing 4 brand new pallets, each of which focus on a specific area. From October 14th you will be able to pick up the #ConcealAndLightLikeAPro Palette, the #FaceTheDay Palette, the #BlushAndGlow Palette and the #YourStyleYourMood Palette. They were also showcasing another of their new releases; the Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation, which you can get your hands on from the 23rd of September. While I was there I decided to get skin matched by their makeup artist who also works on the XFactor, obviously I was the palest shade available.

The Trilogy stand was were I headed to next as they had a gorgeous little set up displaying their new cleanser. The cleanser, which comes with an organic cotton cloth has been formulated with mango butter, coconut, sunflower and rosehip oils so it has a very pretty floral scent. This new product claims to melt away even long wear and waterproof makeup leaving your skin feeling clean and soft. 

Another brand I was particularly interested in was Weleda, a company I hadn't previously heard of. They were showcasing their new range of Almond body care which smells incredible. Having eczema prone skin I'm always on the hunt for good quality skin care products and the new range from Weleda looks like it would be perfect for me. The new products which are specially formulated for sensitive skin include a hand cream, body lotion, body wash and a soothing facial oil.

One new release I was looking forward to checking out was the Avene TriAcneal Expert after hearing so many good reviews of their other skincare products. Although I don't suffer with acne myself I do get the occasional break out which can be very embarrassing for someone my age who should have grown out of getting spots as far as I was concerned. I learnt that 40% of grown women suffer with a form of acne so it's really quite common, but TriAcneal Expert can help eliminate and prevent blemishes.

When I think of beauty, I think of makeup, skin care and hair care so I was quite surprised to see a company offering a range of supplements to keep us looking our best. Solgar were there to promote their 3 new products; the Hyaluronic Acid Complex, the Skin Nails and Hair Formula and the Biotin. I'd never really thought about taking supplements before but after reading about the benefits which include healthy hair growth and keeping skin plump and smooth, I might be tempted to give them a go.

The last stand I came to was Dr.Organic. They were showcasing their new range of Bio-active hair care enriched with hemp oil. Hemp oil contains many nutrients that can help with hair growth, hair density and reduced hair loss. The range includes Rescue Shampoo, Rescue conditioner, Restoring Hair & Scalp Treatment and an Intensive Conditioning Hair Mask which you can pick up in Holland & Barrett stores. Although they were promoting their new products, I was particularly interested in one of last years releases, Snail Gel. I hate snails, I always step on them when its dark but I was intrigued by the idea of putting their secretion on my skin. I was lucky enough to receive one of their snail gel products in my goody bag and I'm very excited to try it out!

Other brands at the event include Bio Oil, Lavidal, Lloyds Pharmacy, Manuka Doctor, MICRO Nail, Rapid White, Skincere and Witch who were all showcasing their exciting new releases as well as some of their best selling products. 

There was also a very interesting talk covering beauty blogging, product innovation, key audience insights and more. We heard from 4 special guests; beauty commentator and author Imogen Matthews,  beauty journalist and co-founder of BeautyMART Anna-Marie Solowji, Google mobile expert Catherine Forrest and beauty blogger Jane Cunningham.

I left the event with lots to think about, lots to write about and lots of goodies to try out. 

If you want to see the products I came away with I'll do another post or maybe a video showing them? I'll also be reviewing them too in the next couple of months!
