With the alarm set for 3.15 to catch a red eye to London City and nearing 8 months pregnant and London set to be 35 degrees, to say I wasn't relishing in the prospect of a trip to London to cram in two trade shows and showrooms for Spring Summer 19 buying in the space of 48 hours is some what an understatement-fortunately I had Sonia in tow for company (her first insight into the world of buying).
We started our buying off when we arrived at Pure London Kensington Olympia at 9.30, grabbed a quick coffee before 3 separate appointments at Olympia and then off to Scoop London at the jaw dropping Saatchi Galleries to see Italian Brand Anonyme.
5.30pm came and with a bottle of water in my hand, glass of constantly topped up fizz in Sonia's (I'm not envious in the slightest!) and our final planned appointment of the day is wrapped up... well not quite! Sonia being a lover of scents is drawn to a stand hosting a fabulous range of body, skin and home fragrance.
The scent sold itself, after 45 minutes of chatting and testing all things Connock London Kukui Oil, we've placed an order!
Kukui Oil originates from the Hawaiian Islands- it has outstanding skin-conditioning properties, it is an excellent emollient, highly penetrating to the skin, it improves skin suppleness and elasticity (bonus for us expectant mothers!) as well as soothing skin irritations.
The Oil contains very high levels of linoleic and alpha-linoleic acids (essential fatty acids) and provides effective treatment for symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and acne.
Kukui Oil has been used by Hawaiians for centuries to keep skin soft and smooth. Traditonally, newborn babies were bathed in the oil as a means of protection from the harsh sun, drying winds and salt water.
The Kukui Oil used by Connock London is sourced from a small factory on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. This treasured health and beauty secret is still produced today in the same pure form as it was centuries ago.
This weekend see's us launch our extensive range of Connock London Kukui oil's scent, skin and Home care range.
We do love a new product launch at EvaLucia! So in true fashion pop in and sample the wonders of Kukui oil products- it will be free flowing fizz and sweet treats- and we will be running a little competition to launch the new to store range.
If you can't make it in-store, you can browse our range online.
