Benefit Swansea Boutique Launch

Friday saw the launch of the brand spanking new Benefit boutique inside of Debenhams, Swansea. I was lucky enough to be invited down on launch day to have a nosey around the boutique and find out a little bit more about it. We were greeted by the smiling faces of all the Benefit babes (the loveliest team ever), offered adorable Benefit themed Welsh cakes and treated to the grand tour and pamper session. We were quite the lucky bunch!

It was hard to get any pictures of the actual counter that really do it justice, since it was so busy there, so you'll just have to trust me when I say how nice it is! It's pretty much like your regular Benefit counter, but super sized! Seriously, it's so big and fancy, I was amazed. 

Just off from the main counter is a corridor that leads to three private rooms.. first up is the Smooth Sally room, for all your body waxing needs. Being a regular to waxing since I was in my early teens, I thought I was quite well versed on the subject, but I learned so much there that I didn't already know. The team really do know their stuff! Not only do they offer the regular strip wax, but they also offer hot wax, which would be perfect for your more intimate areas.

Next up is the spray tanning room, which unfortunately I didn't manage to get any pictures of. I'll be honest with you, I know absolutely nothing about fake tanning, so this room went totally over my head, but my friend who I went with is a lot more knowledgeable on the subject than I and she was pretty impressed with it!

Last but not least is my personal favourite, the Beauty School room! First things first.. how adorable are those chairs?! and where can I get some for my dining room table? The beauty school room is pretty much the epitome of girly heaven. Every inch of the room has been beautifully decorated, right down to the frame surrounding the TV set. The beauty school room can be rented out for any occasion and would be perfect for any hen parties, birthday parties or charity events you have coming up. I'm already trying to rack my brains for an excuse to get back there!

I've been visiting the Swansea counter for as long as I can remember and I've honestly never had a less than wonderful experience there, so it really wasn't surprising to find out that this is the best selling Benefit counter in the whole of the UK! How exciting is that?! It's so lovely that this counter has been chosen to turn in to a boutique, it's about time Wales gets something exciting!

You can find the boutique at Debenhams, inside of the Quadrant in Swansea, it's definitely worth checking out if you're in any of the surrounding areas. Also don't forget to follow the boutique on twitter @benefitswansea. Massive thank you to the team for inviting us down and putting on a fabulous event!
