A Tour of Putney Exchange Shopping Centre & My New Favorite Skincare Products

I have been shopping at The Exchange fairly regularly since I moved to Putney a year ago. Since we moved here, the center has gotten several new shops that have my interest so I jumped at the opportunity to take a tour of the shopping center and see what some of these shops have to offer. We started with a quick drink at Fego, a lovely cafe inside The Exchange.

We next headed over to Neuhaus, a fine chocolate shop. Unfortunately it was closed, so we didn't get to indulge in what I hear is the best hot chocolate around (I'll be trying that later!), however they did provide me with a sampler box of chocolates and I can truly say, they were divine! They lasted about 5 minutes in my flat between my husband and I... I'll definitely be going back!

After taking a tour through The Exchange, we ended at Melvita, which was my favorite part of the tour! Melvita is the #1 organic skincare range in France and I can see why!

A consultant did a facial - a sort of skin mapping procedure, checking the health and status of my skin before selecting a range of products that would be most beneficial for my skin and it's specific nuances. I have to say, the products felt and smelled lovely and my skin was glowing and radiant afterwards. I'll definitely be trying out these products in the future!

I was in need of a hand cream, so after trying this lovely option, I had to buy it! It's too good and I've been loving it all week!
I also walked away with these lovely products which I've been using and I just love them! The consultant told me that Melvita uses the two things your skin contains for health: water and oil! I love the idea of organic products and have been trying to use mostly natural things for a while.

I really enjoyed my tour of the Putney Exchange and it's definitely opened my eyes to some stores there I'd never noticed. Have any of you ever been? What did you think?
