John Lewis Newcastle: Liz Earle skincare event

Last Wednesday I attended a Liz Earle skincare event at John Lewis Newcastle. Liz Earle is a brand I have heard many great things about but I haven't actually tried any of the products myself. So this event was perfect for me to go along and try out some products especially the cleanse and polish which everyone raves about.
About Liz Earle The brand Liz Earle is a British beauty brand that was founded in 1995. Liz herself has many years of botanical expertise with this knowledge she uses the natural active ingredients in her ranges. Liz's aims to make products that are easy to use, fuss free, dependable and for them to actually work. The company was founded on the Isle of Wight.  Fun fact: Liz Earle do not do tv advertisements. Instead they work with bloggers/influencers and QVC to get the word out about the products instead.
About my skin I have very sensitive skin and eyes which is my biggest issue when it comes to finding products.  My skin type is normal.

Mr Petit Newcastle event review

I was kindly invited to the VIP night of Mr PetiteNewcastle. I haven't heard of Mr Petit before so I was intrigued to go along and find out more. The business is locally owned and in the heart of the city centre. 
Where is it located?  4 Old Eldon Square,  Newcastle NE1 7JG
Interior The interior is dark yet cosy. I haven't been to a restaurant with an interior like this before so it is unique. 
Food and drinks Mr Petit offer a wide range of tapas, cocktails and drinks. I tried a variety of tapas and drinks to understand the food on offer. I am a fussy eater so I was abit apprehensive about whether I would like the food or not. Drinks I'm not too fussy with although I do prefer more fruity drinks, where you can't taste the actual alcohol.  Upon arrival we were given a selection of drinks to choose from. Pictured above is Sambuca and Prosecco. If these aren't to your taste there is a lot more variety: cocktails, white wines, red wines, bottles, hot drinks, soft drinks. During …
