I went along to the lovely store that is Miss Patisserie last Saturday for their event. I hadn’t actually even heard of the shop before but they’ve been selling online for over 6 years I believe but they opened the little shop in Cardiff in October. I seriously tried to narrow down the photos to include in this post but every damn thing was so beautiful I had to show you as much as I could.
They do sell bath bombs and such but I have to admit I was a little more interested in the skincare and other products. As much as I love a good bath bomb they are a bit of a novelty so I paid a bit more attention to the scents, soaps and scrubs. It was really hard not to just buy everything, I was super tempted by the argan face oil as it has a gorgeous citrus scent but I’m currently trying to get through all my old products as much as possible before making new purchases. I’m going to be keeping this on my wishlist though as my dry skin will adore it I’m sure.
I think my taste in scents varies quite greatly from season to season but at the moment I’m definitely loving the sweet and refreshing kind. I tried out the watermelon body scrub and the matching souffle (which I was very pleasantly surprised to find a sample of in the goody bag) which were delightful and super nourishing. On the theme of refreshing, I also picked up the wake shower steamer which is packed with spearmint to wake you up in the mornings, I love the idea of the shower steamers, you just pop one or half of one in the bottom of your shower and let the water dissolve it so the essential oils float up to you with the steam. Perfect for people that don’t have a bath!
My other purchase was a spearmint and lime candle. I don’t normally spend much on candles, and I certainly didn’t need any more of them but I don’t think I’ve ever smelled anything as good as this. It’s just like a lime starburst but with a kick of mint to it. I simultaneously want to burn it constantly and just save it for special occasions to preserve it as it’s soon to be discontinued.
Basically this is my new favourite shop and I’m so looking forward to trying out new things from them. I’ll let you just enjoy the pretty pictures.
