Don’t miss this amazing weekend of beauty and wellbeing events

Promotional feature with The Body Shop

Leave the stress of life and the city behind you and step into
The Body Shop’s Enchanted Forest pop-up…


From 3-4 November, The Body Shop is celebrating its Christmas collection and inviting you to discover The Enchanted Forest – a magical event designed to pamper, inspire and inform.

Hidden deep in the heart of London’s Shoreditch, it’s the perfect feel-good fix for the festive build up. So step #IntoTheForest and immerse yourself in a sensory paradise where you’ll experience the benefits of nature in the heart of the city.

You’ll enjoy free exclusive shopping discounts, talks by experts and influencers on a host of ethical beauty subjects – from winter skin to wellness to party season make-up, plus free makeovers, massages and skin consultations.

Take part in #EnchantedByNature hands-on workshops, including Christmas wreath-making to gift wrapping and fitness classes.

The Enchanted Forest has been created to highlight the importance of protecting, preserving and re-wilding natural spaces, such as the Forest of Dean. Not only are they environmentally important, they’re good for us too – getting back to nature makes us feel grounded and reboots physical and mental wellbeing.

To see the full timetable of workshops and talks, and to buy tickets, visit The Body Shop. Price of tickets are redeemable against any purchase. We’ve already lined up our top picks…
