Hello My Lovelies!
Today I wanted to tell you a little bit about my recent purchase from the shopping channel. I saw a post by Alexandra at Plumpish Beauty who bought the shopping channel's Beauty tote bag. Seeing as I have no self control, I bought it.
Well the bag is around $30 + $14 for shipping and tax and it is filled with all sorts of pretty things! I believe I received 6 full size items and 14 sample sized items! What a STEAL!
To top it all off, they included a gift certificate for $29.87 (the price of the bag) for you to purchase anything from the shopping channel.
The total of the full sized items alone was $178 retail.
Check out what I got:
Not a bad haul at all huh?
Oh what fun I have. The bag itself is actually pretty big (perfect for the beach) but in my humble opinion, is U G L Y. Oh well. Lets take a closer look at the goods:
Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara: Not my favorite, and this is my second sample of this mascara. Just not my cup of tea.
Pur Minerals Impact Plus Mascara: I haven't tried this yet but I use Pur minerals foundation and love it so I'm excited to try this
CARGO One Base Concealer + Foundation in one: This is far too dark for me as I have pasty Irish princess skin. I'll give it to someone else..
iampure Night and Day Cream: I haven't tried this either because there are a few other face creams in the tote. However, it smells lovely. The entire bag smells like these 2 creams for some reason.
Kalaya Restore After Sun Treatment: Boy is this handy. I haven't had a sunburn yet (knock on wood) but i'll sure reach for this when I do.
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer: This bad boy retails for $80. One of the reasons I bought this tote is because my mums birthday is coming up and who wouldn't like an $80 wrinkle cream for her birthday?
PRAI Youth Synchronizer: Full size, retails for around $40 I believe. Another gift for momma, to pamper herself.
Ojon Damage Reverse Hair Serum: I am not a fan of hair oils because mine is so thin, it always turns out oily. I don't think I'll give it a try..
Elysée Radiance and Retexturizing Serium: Oh this makes me feel fancy. I`m not sure if it actually does anything but it sure makes my skin feel soft. Love it.
it Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer: Again, too dark. I `ll give it to momma.
Sibu Seed Oil: This stuff smells horrible, but it works. Another favorite product. Helps relieve symptoms of rosacea, eczema, acne and dermatitis.
Pro Strong Nail Enamel: A very pretty color but haven`t gotten around to putting it on. As a Maven I get new nail polish every month so this one will have to wait in line ;)
Tan Towel: Remember that pasty Irish princess skin I was telling you about? Well I'm afraid to use this. End of story. I'll take pictures if I do.
Lily Tibetan Chrysanthemum Age Rectify Cream: Ok I meant to give this to mum too as I am only 23 and don't need wrinkle care but as soon as I swatched it on my hand, my skin was incredibly soft! I love it. PLUS it smells good AND its purple.
StriVectin-SD Instant Retexturizing Scrub: I love this. It cleans your skin, leaves it soft. Simple.
Boscia Makeup Remover: I don't like this all that much. Maybe its because it didn't work for me? I don't know just not a fan.
Consonant Skincare Organic Foaming Face Wash: This is lovely. Leaves your skin feeling clean, no muss no fuss, AND its full sized. Score.
Naturally Hand and Body Lotion, White Tea Ginger: This is decent. Nothing spectacular in the slightest. Its just an ordinary hand cream.
So now is about the time where I would normally give the link so that all of you wonderful people can get a tote of your very own.
However, it appears that they do not sell them anymore. If I had been a little more on the ball I would have posted this a week ago and it might still be available. Sorry!
I guess you'll all just have to be jealous (haha kidding!)
But seriously, if you want me to do a more thorough review on anything (I will in time) let me know in the comments!!
Cheers to all,
