Here's a shot of it:
For $35, I got this generously-sized black shimmery cosmetics case, with a mini matching makeup bag inside.The case was filled with 8 samples of Holts' best-selling beauty products, as well as a $10 beauty voucher to redeem anytime before the end of January!
The offerings in the 2013 Beauty Bag were:
ReVive Glycolic Renewal Peel
Darphin Predermine Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Serum
Estee Lauder Perfectionist CP+R Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
Tory Burch Eau de Parfum Spray
Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara in Black
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +
Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask
And if you notice, there's a furry little bum in this shot:
My kitty Sadie likes to take part in my blog photo shoots, and gets quite grumpy when I have to move her out of the way ;)
Anyways, I'm quite excited to give all of these goodies a try! My first crack at the bag was the ultra luxurious Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, which I'd been dying to try for ages (the scary price tag has been the only thing deterring me!). It's aimed at deep moisturization and brightening, which is something my skin so badly needs in this cold weather. I've used it only once so far, but was highly impressed! Will likely be writing a review soon. I'm also keen to try the new Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +. I've sampled the original on several occasions (they come with every gift with purchase!), but have always been disappointed. Here's hoping the new version is something special!
Is this a gift bag that would catch your attention? Have you used or loved any of the products featured inside?
Thanks for reading! xo
