Product Testing Day


The panel testing out products for the product testing day.
The Panel testing.

It’s a hard knuck life for us, it’s a hard knuck life when there are so many products to trial and to pick!

Before

Every girls dream is to sit around all day like Marie Antoinette eating cake, drinking hot drinks, and pampering oneself.

But, in the name of blogging, fashion and advice for Visually Impaired people some of us have to do it! So, on Friday the 15th February me and a group of lovely Guinea pigs all congregated together for a day of hard core testing! So, we came up with are scientifically evidence to show how ladies take that metamorphosis into a butterfly. Read on to find out what we tested and what made the grade.

Meet the panel

sampling AnatomicalsThe day consisted of myself (Emily from Fashioneyesta) and three other lovely ladies Lorna and Alice (both in their late teens,) and Charlotte in her mid thirties.

They were all keen to get stuck in and boy did they do just that!

Towel Turbans

We began by cladding ourselves with our official product testing uniform consisting of white towels and towel turbans with a diamonte button to fasten it. They are available in Primark in a wide range of colours for a very purse friendly £1.50.

We used white in order to give the day that spa feel.

Comments About the Day

Lorna

“I enjoyed the day, in particular the Anatomical Products they were so amusing and were really effective. But, my personal highlight was when Alice smothered her face in chocolate.”

Alice

” I thought the day was great, I particularly found the Rituals products the best. It was very amusing when I was having folly in putting on my turban and Emily had to how me how.”

Charlotte

“I loved the day, in particular I liked eating the cakes and drinking the hot chocolates and teas. But, my favourite brand was Proto-col and my favourite product was Anatomicals Oi You Throbhead! Headache balm. It really did work, so no more popping the pills for me!”

Emily

“I thought the day went very successful and I can’t wait to host another one in the future!”
