My visit to Beauty Heaven a.k.a Benefit headquarters

I was lucky enough to be invited to “beauty heaven” by the lovely people at Benefit, to have a nose around their office and take a closer look at their Christmas gift sets.

I actually arrived 20 minutes early and not knowing the area at all, ended up 10 minutes late! So I was a bit flustered when I first arrived but just in time for the presentation, introducing me and the other bloggers to Benefit.

I learnt so much about Benefit, how the company started and developed, as well as where they are now and what they have planned. We were then given a tour of the offices, which were amazing. The whole place was decorated pink and had cute signposts of the different departments. We also got to meet Ian and Gail, the people responsible for running Benefit in the UK (I believe!).

The atmosphere in the office was amazing, as much as I love where I work, you can imagine that the Benefit team have a lot of fun at work every day. In fact, I learnt that they have a YouTube channel and that all the staff are used to make the adverts for new products, with the most recent being "They’re Real". This is the link to a video they made of a tour around the office, which should give you a bit of an idea about the energy levels I got to experience in the office on the day.

I don’t have to worry about breaking any secrets saying this now, but we were even lucky enough to see two new products to be launched in the new year, which I have noticed some bloggers already writing about. The new blush, Hervana and new flawless foundations.

Unfortunately I had to leave early and missed the chance to win a hamper of Benefit goodies and the opportunity to play around with some products, but I was lucky enough to be given a goodie bag filled generously with some new products to try.

I am most excited about the porefessional primer, since this has been on my wish list for a while. The headband has already come in handy for my pampering sessions and I will be sure to review the other products as soon as possible.

My visit has definitely made me love the brand that much more. Let me know what your favourite Benefit product is.
