The meet up session started with a brief description and introduction to the brand. Then the product range was introduced along with key ingredients of the products. Not only that, we were informed about the benefits of several natural ingredients and how they work on our skins. 

Have you ever imagined what we expose our skin to? In the name of skin care products, how many chemicals seep into our skin? Our skin is like a sponge which has the ability to absorb and anything that gets absorbed into the skin gets absorbed further into our blood stream, it becomes a part of our body. Now imagine all the chemicals, the parabens, the silicates and the acids our skin absorbs. What long term effects it has on our skin, on our body? No wonder skin diseases like skin cancer and allergies are becoming so common. These harmful chemicals are then transferred to off springs and they inherit the same problems or at least are more vulnerable to inherit. 

The thing about Well beeing is, its cruelty free, vegan with no silicates, parabens or preservatives. Everything is 100% natural, chemical free and hand made. If something does not suit you it wont harm you either. 

The man behind Well beeing


See the lovely food??? Everything was home made. The Hummus was out of this world tasty, I admit this is the first Hummus that I actually liked. The biscuits topped with home made cheese and Danish cheese reminded me of Buschetta. The Chinese teas...... OMG they were simply divine. It seems, the presenter is a multi talented guy, not only he formulates skin care products for Well beeing, he is a well accomplished cook as well with a classy taste. My taste buds were very pleased :D

Facial cleansers
 First Impression:

I tested Be awake on my skin as I was really drawn to the coffee aroma of the facial cleanser. I tried it on my left hand and the result is below.

Instant result of using Bee awake. Used on left hand

Sensational massage melts and solid body lotions:

Main ingredients are cotton seed oil, shea butter and olive oil. 

The unique aspect of these body lotions is they are solid, like soap bars. This is a total new concept for me as I have never heard of solid lotions before. I find the idea very intriguing as its very user friendly. Imagine, you have no fear of liquid spilling in your handbag and creating a mess as the lotion is in solid form. All you have to do is rub a little on your hands and massage it into your skin. 

The use of these lotions was demonstrated to us and it was tested right there and then by the bloggers. I found it very convenient to use and the best part was, it absorbed instantly into my skin and did not leave behind any greasy residue and felt very light on the skin. I apply hand lotion a lot, like 4-6 times a day and it results in an oily film over my laptop but with these solid lotions I am expecting not to be the case. The only draw back of these lotions is, they won't be able to with stand extreme weather and might melt in the harsh Summers of Lahore. 

The solid lotions come in 6 variants with different scents and shapes and are very tempting to use. All ingredients being 100% natural.

 Bath soaks and bath salts: 

Well beeing has 5 different bath salts in its range. 2 of them are therapeutic and remaining 3 are regular bath salts. 

1. Bee chocoholic
2. Bee refreshed
3. Bee relieved

I got to smell a few bath salts and I must say they smelled so refreshing and the aroma rising from those salts was so relaxing. One just can not get out of bath if thats going to be the case. Good thing about these bath salts is they are so skin friendly that you can use bath salt water for your face as well. It will not absorb the moisture on your skin rather it will help resurface the moisture from underneath the skin. 

I find the vintage glass packaging so awesome. Show me anything vintage and I am sold. At this moment I am not even concerned about the performance of the product, one look at those bottles and I was sold right there and then.

 Lip scrubs:

The best part about this meet up was, it was not only a product marketing activity or brand attraction by the Well beeing team.

All in all, it was a fun filled evening with a very informative session and getting to know other bloggers. It was not only about getting to test new products or taking new products home for testing, it was more of a learning session with new information and knowledge gained. The homely, cozy feeling that came with the ambiance was another plus. The arrangements made by Well beeing for the bloggers were commendable. I simply loved everything. I am not a tea person at all but the Chinese herbal teas that were served tasted amazing. I am thankful to Well beeing for providing me the chance to be a part of this event.

In the end all beauty bloggers got products for testing, I got a few as well which I shall start reviewing soon as I am currently testing them. Hope you liked the long, detailed post. Drop in your comments to share your views with me. Stay healthy and beautiful. xoxo!!!
