FOLLOW UP TO VOSENE LONDON ZOO POST
We were delighted to receive a box of scrummy hair products from Vosene in the post last week. It included :
The activating Tonic
The activating shampoo
The extra shine detangling shampoo
The original medicated shampoo
and The Two in One Gentle Action
The twins wasted no time trying out the two in one gentle action and as you can see from the pic NO TEARS! I have to mention that it is also the softest shampoo I have ever felt. Its an amazing texture, it almost feels like you are touching silk! Difficult to explain, try it yourself you will see what I mean. I am definitely hooked on it and will certainly be buying it !
As we have no long haired people in our family, we are giving away the extra shine detangling shampoo, which I am reliably informed works wonders on curls and long hair for both boys and girls. There was some discussion at the event that the packaging may need improving (i.e the princess theme) but apart from that it got a massive thumbs up for effectiveness.

When I set up my blog last year I thought I would just use it to showcase my business website. I was not expecting to be bitten by the blogging bug! and certainly not prepared for all the wonderful opportunities to attend days out and events that would come our way as a family.
Last Saturday we were thrilled to be invited by Vosene to an all expenses paid trip to London, including an overnight stay in a hotel so that we could really make the most of the Mother's Day weekend.
We arrived early in London, which gave us plenty of time to get to the venue at London Zoo. We decided to hop on the underground to Regents Park and have a walk through the park to the zoo. We walked, whilst all around us people ran! We were in the middle of a charity run!
When we arrived at the zoo were waved through by the gate guard ticking us off a list like we were celebrities! I could get used to this. Meeting up with Jen and her Mad Family from MumintheMadHouse and the other bloggers some we knew and some we didn't it was a really nice mix of families.
Vosene went to a lot of trouble to set the venue up in the Mappin Pavillion. There were tables set out with facepainting, card making, cake decorating, a magician, dressing up, space hoppers, hand painting,even nannies to take care of the children. A lot of thought had gone into entertaining everyone. By far the biggest hit with the twins was the magician, squeals of laughter and amazment as he performed close up magic to everyone.
Space Hopper (or rather Vosene droplet racing (I may or may not have had a go, there is evidence somewhere, but I seem to have mislaid it at the moment ) !
Nannies to watch over and entertain the children, this was the Handpainting onto canvas. A lovely thoughtful touch which gave us a great reminder of the day to take home and keep.
Erm ! Facepainting and dressing up. Jarvis got right into the spirit of things, Milo was a bit more reserved (just like his mother) xx
Lots of lovely scrummy food and cake ! Lots of gorgeous Cupcakes! I may have eaten one or maybe two, could have been three......
The back of my head and the back of Jacob's head ! The big Vosene Boss chatted about the range including : new vosene activating range my husband and Jen's husband were particularly interested in the activating tonic can't think why ! Bless.
I love the packaging of the Vosene Kids Range its certainly come a long way since I was a child and mum used to scrub my head with it *cough* 40 odd years ago! It has a natural head lice repellent and items in the range like Mega Hold Styling Gel and Extra Shine Spray. Products to suit even the most demanding little darling.
We were privvy to some information on the the new products currently in development and one in particular really made my ears prick up, but you will have to wait a while to find out what they are. In the meantime why don't you pop over to the brand new vosene website HERE take a look at all the new products now available, you might just be surprised how far Vosene have come and while you are there take part in the Fab family competition HERE Its an amazing opportunity to win a family holiday worth upto £10,000. The competition is open from April to October with a new chance each month to enter based on family values of Sharing, Belonging,Time Together, Traditions, Fun and Trust.
You might also like to know that Vosene are in partnership with the wonderful NSPCC Charity who were also at the event on the day. I personally couldn't think of a better charity to support.
We had a wonderful time with Vosene, thank you all so much for the opportunity and a really big special thankyou to possibly the nicest PR person EVER who came to our rescue at the hotel and later on Sunday !
