Haul

After spending the last two weeks in a state of upheaval (getting an amazing new bathroom - post to follow!). I went into town yesterday afternoon for a Giorgio Armani make-over at Harvey Nichols.

A £10 booking fee was charged (redeemable on products), a glass of pink fizz and a goodie bag.  Nice way to spend a Thursday afternoon!  After the make-over I bought Luminous Silk Foundation in shade 4.5 - one of my favourite foundations ever.  In the goodie bag I got - 2ml Eyes to Kill Excess Mascara in Black, 5ml Fluid Master Primer (love this!), Rouge d'Armani Sheers - carded vial with three shades with little brush and 3ml Regenessence Youth Regenerator.


I also got some freebie magazines around town.


I also picked up the InStyle magazine freebies - 2ml Eyes to Kill Excess Mascara in Black (this is going in my upcoming giveaway) and 30ml Shiseido Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam.  Your skin gets "read" by a machine and mine was read as slightly dry - I'm normally combination.  The assistant recommended that I use a serum to counteract this. 


Top Sante magazine (August) is offering a free L'Occitane Verbena Shower Gel 75ml (worth £7).  You need to go instore with a voucher in the magazine. The Sales Assistant also gave me two sachets (each 6ml) of a new Limited Edition  product - Verbana Body Ice Gel.  I popped into the new Kiehl's shop and got a couple of 5ml sachet samples of Creme de Corps.  


Using the Latest in Beauty L'Occitane offer I got 50ml Angelica Hydration Cream which cost £29 with a free 200ml Angelica Cleansing Gel worth £16.  Absolutely love this range.


Finally, I picked up three Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, Lovesick and Rendezvous.



Have you picked up any of the offers lately or anything nice?

  9. Haven't picked up a thing lately. But I have tried the Revlon lip stains, which some people say are as good as/better than Clinique Chubby Sticks. I'm not convinced, but they are nice.

    I'm interested to know how you like the Shiseido cleanser.
