Haul Featuring The David Jones Beauty Deluxe Sampler Tote

Wednesday 14 August 2013

David Jones has their new Beauty Catalogue out and it's filled with amazing GWP specials. I went and picked up some beauty goodies and of course had to pick up the sample bag too! 

One of GWP deals is from In Essence. In Essence is an aromatherapy brand that also have body and skincare. I haven't tried their oils before and wanted to get the "Lavender" oil to put on in my daughters room to help her relax before bed and (hopefully) sleep well. 

The GWP is when you spent $34.95 or more you receive an oil burner and a "Motivation" oil. Because I can't say no to a GWP, I ended up picking up the "Jasmine in Jojoba" oil. I adore the scent of jasmine, and thought it would be a beautiful scent to burn in the house. Jasmine is also great for PMS too! 

Because I'm loving candles lately, I also picked up two goodies from MOR. I've been burning a lot of candles lately, but have been using scissors as I couldn't find my candle wick trimmer (which is a big no if you want the best results from your candle). 

The wick trimmer is pure luxe. It's gold and absolutely gorgeous. It costs $24.95, but because it doesn't "go off" or get ruined, it's a wise candle investment.

I also bought a small lychee candle. I have one of these in the Marshmallow scent already. It's small so it's great for small spaces, like offices and bathrooms.   

MOR also had a GWP. When you spend $29.95, you get a 3 pack of travel sized soaps. I adore MOR soaps (I'm using their "Candied Vanilla Almond" soap at the moment) and they're a great way of bringing a little bit of luxury into your day. The soaps are "Quince Persimmon," "Pepperberry Cardamon" and "Cyclamen Tuberose." The 3 scents are so beautiful, but very different. There's at least one scent for everyone in the pack (I love all 3 scents). 

When you purchase any full priced beauty product at David Jones, you can purchase their Deluxe Sampler Tote for only $19.95. It contains over $100 worth of products. 

The tote is on the smaller size. I can't use small bags. A clutch is my worst (fashion) nightmare, so this will be given away to someone that will actually use it. 

While I won't use the tote, I LOVE the clear make up bag that the products come in. They've used this previously and I actually still use mine (it holds my most used foundations and is stored in my bathroom cabinet). 

There are 2 different bags available. While both bags contains some of the same products, they have 4 products that are different. I love how they do this. 

The same products are...

David Jones Beauty "Deeply Purifying Facial Cleanser" (30ml)
David Jones Beauty "Natural Regeneration Day Cream" (30ml)
SK-II "Facial Treatment Essence" (30ml)
OPI Nail Lacquer (3.75ml)
Elixia "Firming Toning Body Lotion" (20ml)
Molton Brown "Toko Yuzu Bath & Shower Gel" (30ml)
Roger & Gallet Soap (25g)

In the bag I choose, the other 4 products were...

Billie Goat Lip Balm (15ml)
Circa Home Natural Wax Candle (60g)
Dermalogica Precleanse (30ml)
Burt's Bees "Intense Hydration Day Lotion" (7g)

Body products in the bag

Skincare products in the bag

I received a "Peach" lip balm 
and a pale pink OPI nail polish

Candle in "Vanilla Bean & Allspice"

A Molton Brown and SK II coupon

The coupons that come in the bag are a 20% off at Molton Brown when you purchase $80 or more. Also at a David Jones SK II counter you can get a free Facial Treatment Mask with your first consultation and purchase.

There were a few different OPI colours in the bag. I saw a bright pink, pale pink, white, bright red and a orangey red colour in the DJs I was in. 

The other type of bag has these four different products...

L'Occiatane Shea Butter Hand Cream (10ml)
Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter
Batiste Dry Shampoo (50ml)
Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser (20g)
