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!
