DAVID JONES Deluxe Sampler Tote

HI bloggers.. how's your week been so far? Hanging out for loved up Valentine's Day tomorrow? My hubs isn't too crash hot in the romance department, so it means very little in our house!

I recently saw the David Jones Deluxe Sampler Tote on matillyrose's blog, and completely allowed Jac's review to twist my arm lol. She even popped back to my blog to let me know they'd been restocked on their online site! Yay.. no David Jones for 100's of km around here! And the mother in law had given me some money for my birthday.. so here's what I received..

There are two versions on the bag.. mine is TYPE B - you can see the TYPE A on Jac's blog - I much prefer the tote in that pact. The Bag is actually black and gold.. not the bronze colours like in my photo. The samples all came attached in a clear zippered bag, now that bag will def come in useful. 

NATIO Spa Recovery Hand Scrub 90g (full size) 
I've never tried a hand scrub so I'm looking forward to this one, will be good for the winter.

KIEHL'S Pwerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream 7ml
Yes Please!! 

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer 14.7ml
I can always use some more primer. 

Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermafoliant 15ml
Says to spritz on face and neck - with eyes closed after cleansing. Sounds good. 

AVEDA Invati Shampoo & Conditioner 10ml
Single use samples for me.. these are for thinning hair. I'm not sure if that is my case, but I do lose a lot of hair on a daily basis so...?

OPI Nail Lacquer 3.75ml
The perfect sheer baby pink. Just what I need :) Always need polish and these little minis are excellent when travelling, my husband doesn't even need to know I packed them ;)

LIVE CLEAN Freash Face Soothing Daily Moisturiser 30ml

Kosmea Rose Hip Oil 3ml
OMG - this tiny vile could not be any cuter if it tried! I have long been a fan of Rose Hip Oils.. 

WELEDA Skin Food 10ml
For dry and rough skin. How cool is just the name of this! 

SCOTTISH FINE SOAPS Au Lait Body Milk 50ml
A nice thin lotion, with a nice subtle 'clean & soapy' scent. 

DAVID JONES BEAUTY Milk & Honey Body Wash 60ml
DAVID JONES BEAUTY Milk and Honey Cream 60ml

THE BALM Hot Mama Shadow/Blush 1g
I am thrilled with the colour of this! 

Also included was the little Laura Mercier sample pot. So cute. So what do you think? Good value? The items are valued at over $109, contains thirteen beauty products and was $19.95 with any beauty purchase.
I am extremely happy with my samples, and really look forward to trying them all out. I dare say there will be some reviews just so you know what I thought of them. The bags are still available online so if you're wanting to pick something up, why not add this to your cart as well.

I purchased a few NATIO products and made sure I qualified for their Gift with Purchase, and I'll share those will you soon. Take care xx

  5. Hey thanks Jac… I am really glad to have got a full collection of such good quality skin care products in a single tote. The products are relatively better than what I usually expect from online shopping.
