It is that time of the year when David Jones releases their bi-annual deluxe sampler tote which is available for $19.95 with any beauty purchase.
I have been getting them for few years as I got lots of nice product to try out of them and overall I think they are a great value (often valued over $100)
In my tote I had...
David Jones tinted day cream and daily face cream
My skin is very temperamental and can break out easily so these are going straight into donation, tinted cream has mineral oil in it so it is a big no-no for me personally.
St. Tropez bronzing mousse
Comes in a cute 50 ml bottle and is perfect to take with me on my next holiday. I also get way more applications out of the mousse formula compared to gel or cream.
Ecoya limited edition candle
This miniature candle has warm but clean and subtle scent, right up my alley! Bonus points for cute glass jar.
KORA Organics lip balm
I had good experience with Kora products so far but wouldn't pay full price for them. This lip balm is clear and almost scent-free so it will probably be my next lip-primer.
Burt's Bees cream cleanser
I prefer foaming cleansers to cream cleansers but will give it a shot as an eye make-up remover.
Molton Brown Gingerlily body wash
I like receiving miniature body washes in my packs as I often use them at the gym. Molton Brown body washes are very nice but once again there is no way I would pay full price for them.
Philosophy time is a bottle serum
This is supposed to be an anti-aging product but it also delivers other benefits as even skin tone and reduction of pore size. It comes in a very cute 2 ml pump bottle that is perfect for 1 to 2 weeks trip.
O.P.I nail lacquer in Pussy Galore
How could I walk past a nail polish called Pussy Galore?! I don't usually go for shimmery pink nails but this one dries to a matte "sand" finish that sort of reminds me of a sugar coat. It was fun to wear and looked nice on my nails but it started chipping just after one day.
