Holland & Barrett 'More' Store Opening in Plymouth


On Thursday I was kindly invited to Holland & Barrett's brand new 'More' store opening at Drake Circus, which is one the first of its kind in the South West! I think when most people think of Holland & Barrett's they think of vitamins, but it really is much more than that and I am really excited about this new concept store.

When I first arrived all of the staff were so welcoming and then I was introduced to Jo who is the founder of the Beauty Kitchen (one of my favourite parts of the store!).  Within seconds Jo had me dropping my bags and jumping onto a bike to mix my very own Body Scrub followed by a 60 second manicure as a special treat which also left my hands feeling super soft. The Beauty Kitchen have created a 100% natural everyday luxury beauty products which all smell and look amazing.

You can pick up 'make your own' kits for lip balms and bath bombs which would make great gift sets for birthday's and Christmas. I already have in mind who I want to give one to. You can also get crafty in the store as they have a station in which you can personalise your own Body Scrub to suit your skin type/needs.



Now for all the foodies - H&B have you covered. I am currently coming onto week 7 of my Results With Lucy New Beginnings plan (post coming soon) and really struggle to find decent healthy snacks in Plymouth which isn't just a vegetable and actually tastes nice. H&B have a HUGE variety of healthy snacks which I'm dying to try from well known brands as well as an Olive Bar, Oil and Vinegar stand and a Pick n Mix station with no fizzy cola bottles in sight! Instead you can stock up on delicious fruits, nuts and snacks for a healthy treat. I can tell this is something I'm going to get carried away with.

For all the vegetarians and vegans they even have a fridge/freezer section which contains 'free from' products to make your life a bit easier.



Then for all the fitness fans, they cover a wide range of protein powders and have trained staff on hand to carry out Body Analysis, which includes measuring your BMI and hydration levels to help you improve your fitness or reach your desired goal.

To round off an already fabulous afternoon their lovely PR team kindly gifted me with some goodies to try out, which I'm so grateful for!




I hope you all had a good weekend and if you're from or near Plymouth I'd definitely recommend popping in and exploring the new store and all of the fantastic products. There's something for everyone in there.
