Pamper Grotto with Sanctuary Spa and giveaway - Merry Christmas!

Last week I joined lots of other bloggers in London for the PZ Cussons Christmas beauty blogger Pamper Grotto. Hosted at the lovely St Martin's Lane Hotel, this was an opportunity to get to know four of the company's brands a little better - Sanctuary Spa, Fudge Urban, St Tropez and Charles Worthington haircare.

It was a great evening, catching up with a few old faces and meeting new ones. I enjoyed a couple of glasses of Prosecco, canapes and Percy Pigs (gummy/jelly sweets) - and had my nails done, all the time with Christmas songs playing and Bing Crosby's White Christmas on screen in the background.









Experts were on hand to provide hair chalking with Fudge chalks (the results I saw looked amazing), hair styling and spray tans. I didn't go for a tan, but I did speak to St Tropez tanning guru Jules Heptonstall, who is celebrity tanning and skin finishing expert on Strictly Come Dancing.

I couldn't resist: "What are they like", "Any gossip", "What about the judges, is Craig Revel Horwood as harsh as he seems, or is that just his TV character"? Alas, he would not be drawn, he was the soul of discretion and all I learned was they are all lovely people on Strictly.


He was so down to earth, not diva-ish at all, and a joy to talk to.

The evening was rounded off with a generous gift from PZ Cussons to you, my blog readers. I was asked to select a gift from around the Christmas tree to use as a giveaway on 40s Chic, which of course I was delighted to do.

And here it is - I've chosen the Ultimate Girls Night In kit, which contains Radiance Exfoliator (15ml), 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask Sachet (15ml), Spa Facial Headband, Luxury Bath Float (75ml), Body Butter (100ml), Body Scrub (50ml), Hand Cream (30ml), Spa Perfect Manicure Orange Sticks and a Spa Perfect Manicure Emery Board.



I thought it was just the thing for an evening of de-stressing among the frantic whirl of wrapping paper, shopping and Christmas prep. Share it with friends in a get together over a bottle of wine, or your daughter (Dot is so into beauty at the moment), or just pamper yourself...

To enter simply follow 40s Chic on Bloglovin, tell me you have done so, and leave a comment below. Remember to leave a contact in your comment (Twitter handle, blog address etc) so I can get in touch if you're the lucky winner. Winner will be chosen at random through random.org. If I cannot contact you then the prize will go to the next person on the randomly generated list.

(Open to over 18s and UK only - sorry. One entry per person. Closing date is midnight on Tuesday 10 December. Winner will be chosen at random through random.org. Any questions just let me know.)
