These lovely samples arrived today, I know the bottom one came via a SoPost sampling but I’m not sure about the top one! Anyway, up top I have samples of Alien EDP and Alien Flora Futura, I haven’t opened them to smell them yet but they feel like they have some towelettes inside the packaging. I’m hoping they do as I love it when I receive perfume samples this way 😀
Below that is a small bottle of Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair which from the directions for use seems to be a serum type product. I love a good serum so am looking forward to trying this one out 🙂
Now we come to my other delivery today, I’m putting the picture under the description for a few reasons, I hope none of you mind 🙂 Over the weekend I found a bundle of beauty items on eBay which were a bit disguised (all upside down or covered by other items), it was easy to make out a few of the products that I am very familiar with but most I couldn’t even guess at but I counted around 30 items and with those I knew were there I placed a bid I was happy with.
I won the auction and the items arrived here today – I am totally blown away with what I have received. There are loads more items than I expected – 61 in fact! Yes there are some duplicates but that’s not a problem, not even the 4 identical brushes as I’m sure that whatever I decide I can’t use, someone in our families will find a home for 😉 Also, the observant among you might notice all of the items I received in my Tili box last November are there, these are the items I noticed and based my bid upon and the ones I wanted most as the box did live up to it’s name of ‘Try it, Love it’ 😀
I had to do separate photo’s today as there was too much in each surprise to get them in one photo!
First up we have the #triyit box from www.triyit.co.uk They are a product discovery club who are currently in a pre-launch phase who send out boxes of goodies free of charge to those who match their brands criteria and this time I was a match! I’m really looking forward to trying these goodies, some I’ll even share with D but the one I can see the best future for is that porridge pot! I must have breakfast to take some tablets each morning and this can be difficult when we go away overnight but this could be an option for me to have a healthy breakfast which tastes great, I’ll be taking this next time we go in a few weeks!
The postman brought me this lovely surprise this morning which has come from a competition I entered with docrafts. These will no doubt come in very handy with my card making, my journal and gift wrapping, I already have a few idea’s 😀
The postman has been nice to me again today. Both of these have come from a sampling via SoPost.
First I have a Sanctuary Spa Charcoal Bubble sheet mask, this sounded so interesting when I found the offer of a sample. I’ve heard good things about the use of charcoal in skincare BUT not so good ones about those painful charcoal masks, hopefully this will be good for my skin without any of the pain 🙂
Also I received this lovely sounding strawberry ‘milkshake’ made by Boost Drinks and packed with extra protein. I have always loved a milkshake but since being on my diet they have become a self banned food, I just can’t handle losing that many points in a drink!lol But this is a good way of compromising. Adding in the extra protein is good for my body and I’ve found having protein rich foods helps to keep me fuller for longer which is always great on any eating plan! So, as long as this tastes good, I might just have to buy some more for when I deserve a treat 🙂
These lovely goodies have come via a SoPost sampling and are Glamglow’s Galacticleanse and Thirstymud. As you can see from the included leaflet there was a choice of 2 options with this offer of samples, I chose the ones which seemed better for my skin and am looking forward to testing them out over the next few days 🙂
Happy New Year everyone! Hope that you had a good Christmas and that this year will be a good one for all of us 😀
The sweetener sachets I received to help me to stick to my New Year’s resolution. I love that they offered 4 different packs to target 4 different area’s that people might try to improve upon and mine is totally right for me, I really need to exercise more and build upon all the good work I did last year 🙂
The pot of Garnier SkinActive Botanical Jelly has come via a SoPost sampling offer from Garnier. I love trying new beauty products (as you may have gathered from the Advent Calendars I had last year!lol) so this is great for me too. I’m looking forward to adding this in to my new routine 🙂
Ohhhhh 2 posts in 1 day 😀 I admit I have had deliveries over the past week to 10 days but I’ve not been able to post them due to them being either gifts for people who might spot the posts or review products which I cant share with you so sorry about that.
The postman was very good to me today as you can see above! On the far left is a recipe booklet I won from Filippo Berio who ran an instant win ‘shake the tree’ game recently. It’s a thin pamphlet but there are some very interesting recipes in it.
Next to that on the top are 2 samples of Britney Spears perfume, I received them via a sample offered from SoPost and the sachet below them came via SoPost as well. This is a sample of John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Deep Conditioner. I normally hate receiving samples in sachets as you never really take scissors into the shower now do you?lol They never seem to tear right for me without scissors but this is a rather large sample within the sachet so hopefully it will tear right, it’s normally the ones with very little in that go really wrong for me!
Finally over on the right is a lovely gift from Sainsbury’s. This came as a brilliant surprise to me this morning, the items they sent are 4 gold chocolate coins, a small packet of gold pearls and a sample tube of Dirty Works creamy body wash. All very nice and appreciated, Thanks Sainsbury’s 😀
The first thing to say is this photo does not do my new winter coat any justice as it is the most gorgeous purple coat I’ve ever seen and I have been lusting after it for months now but the £££ were a bit too many for me to be comfortable with. Happily it just went on about a 40% reduction and I just had to grab one. It fits like a dream, is really warm and the furry hood is just right too! I’m def very happy with this purchase, it’s listed on the site I purchased it from as Joe Browns Perfect Padded Jacket and it totally lives up to that name!
Nestled in the waist of the jacket are 2 freebies that came today via SoPost from Sanctuary Spa. I received the Body Wash and D received the Body Butter. both smell as lovely as Sanctuary products always do 🙂
