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 🙂
This arrived as a lovely surprise this morning. It’s a 15ml pot of Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask from Space NK. I believe I won it from a competition that ran on the Byrdie website last year. It looks like a gel in the pot and smells really fresh and lovely. After looking it up, it is very similar in use to a product I already use which I’m running out of so it’s great timing for me on its arrival!
This is my latest purchase from eBay. I found a few large sample sized products on there from brands I’m interested in trying and this is one of the packs I actually managed to win! The main product I was interested in is the Caudalie Vinoperfect concentrated brightening essence which sounds really good from the write up and reviews I have read. There was also a Caudalie Vinoperfect radiance complexion correcting serum which I am currently using (always handy to have a travel size!) and a Caudalie Vinosource moisturizing sorbet which sounds interesting. I’m really looking forward to trying these out and for my other products to arrive 😀
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 🙂
Right in the middle is one of the plates JackpotJoy were giving away to commemorate Paddy McGuinness’ coronation.
The other items are my campaign pack from the Savvy Circle’s Olay campaign. I’m looking forward to trying this out as I’ve tried a few of their products and usually had good experiences with them. I also have some samples to give to friends along with money off coupons. #OlayAgeless
Today’s deliveries are the proof that I’ve been naughty and opened a door on one of my calendars! From Paula’s unboxing video I knew that behind the first door of my You Beauty advent calendar was a voucher for ESPA along with a product. I have a feeling that they may get a lot of orders that day and so decided that I would open the door, use the voucher, put it back and keep whatever I got with the voucher until the 1st to have with the other item behind the door. So this is what I decided to use my voucher on.
Across the top and the 2 products on the left are the ESPA Joyful Treats cracker. The 2 products are a full size Nourishing Lip Treatment and a 30ml Limited Edition Nourishing Hand Cream.
In the middle is a box which came free with the order and contained 2 luxury sized samples which are to the right of it. on the left of these is a 15ml Pink Hair and Scalp Mud & on the far right is a 7ml Lift & Firm Moisturiser.
I’ve had a sniff at everything and they smell really good, a bit more herbal than I would usually select but I’m in an experimental mood right now (which should explain all the multi brand calendars this year!lol) so I’m actually looking forward to trying these out in December 😀
