Skin renewal

Happy Event is a household name that has been used by generations of women, more specifically to help prevent stretch marks in pregnancy. Happy Event Body Oil is vegan, 100% natural and not tested on animals. Made with argan, olive, marula, baobab and oat oils, and fragranced with lavender essential oil, the oil helps regenerate the skin and regulate moisture with its high concentration of vitamin A and E.

The bottle “cork” ensures that you use the product sparingly as a little goes a long way. The fragrance is not overpowering but lovely. Apply straight after a shower as part of your night-time self-care routine.

Swing it!
