Elizabeth Arden Big Beauty Gift.

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

The other day, I was perusing the beauty counters in Boots when something caught my eye at the Elizabeth Arden stand. The lovely people at Elizabeth Arden are offering a free beauty gift bag packed with samples of their essential products (worth up to £117!) with any purchase of two items, at least one of which being skincare. I've been planning on buying the cult favourite Eight Hour Cream for a while so I couldn't resist snapping it up while this fabulous offer was taking place. Elizabeth Arden is one of those brands that I've never really delved into and this offer seemed like the perfect opportunity to sample a good range of their products. For my second item I decided on the Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sheer Tint in Blush, then the girl at the counter talked me through the ten samples available, helping me decide on which five would be best for me. In the end, along with my two purchased items, I walked away with:

  • Visible Difference Exfoliating Cleanser 
  • Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15
  • Visible Difference Optimizing Skin Serum
  • Prevage Anti-Aging Daily Serum
  • Beautiful Color Eyeshadow Quad in Sterling, Sugar Cube, Black Tie and Graphite 

As an added bonus, the bag itself is gorgeous and has instantly become my new makeup bag of choice! I'm working my way through the products and loving them all so far, so individual reviews are most likely on their way soon. The offer runs until 04.05.13 at Boots, so there's still another week or so left if you fancy taking a look for yourself - I'd definitely recommend it!


  1. such a fab beauty gift!! Il admit im a little guilty of walking past elizabeth arden without a second glance, but next time I pass a counter I think im gonna have to have a nosey!! would love to know how you get on with the lipstick :) xx

    1. First impressions are that it's very sheer - definitely more of a balm than a lipstick, and really moisturising. I'll try to get a post up about it soon!

      You should definitely have a little look, I was so pleasantly surprised. x

  2. wow this looks lovely! we love it when stores have gift bags and great offers like this!


    1. Me too, such a good incentive to buy! x

  4. Gift bags always suck me in too, they're too good to resist! This one looks amazing :)

  5. I'm waiting to review a mascara I purchased but wish I knew this offer was on!

  12. i love it when they give away sample packs like these with purchases and so does my mum, so i'm lucky most of the time she buys her make up (i usually get mine online) she'll split the gift pack with me. they're definitely a great way to get a feel for the brand and try a whole range of their products.
