Lancome GWP and Crabtree & Evelyn haul!

5 Comments

Go stock up! Lancome has a 7-piece gift with a purchase of $34.50 CAD or more at Sears, ending February 20th:

I purchased the 200 mL Galatée Confort (on the far left), which is a milky cleanser I have always wanted to try and have now been given an excuse by the GWP! Included in the 7-piece set are:

  1. 3 makeup brushes and case
  2. Hypnôse Doll Lashes mascara (oops, hidden behind the palette)
  3. Color Design eyeshadow quad
  4. Color Design lipstick
  5. Rénergie Lift Volumetry cream
  6. two out of three of: (1) Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, (2) Bi-Facil eye makeup remover, and (3) either the Crème Radiance or the Gel Radiance (can’t remember which)

All items come in the cosmetic bag shown. There is a choice for the eyeshadow and lipstick in either warm or cool colours (I chose the warm – cool had frosty blue colours). I chose the Visionnaire corrector and the Bi-Facil, since the Crème/Gel Radiance cleanser is more for normal/combination skin.

The brushes don’t look to be high quality, but I lucked out in getting two sets of brushes mis-packaged in my bag, so not complaining overly much here :). The brush case and cosmetic bag are a metallic purple that also don’t look particularly well-made. But they seem durable enough.

I am a sucker for Clinique’s GWP’s, and also got last year’s Lancome GWP previously that came in a really cute durable orange cosmetic bag that was quite large. I ended up giving it all up to my mom though, so I didn’t get a chance to try out the Mousse Confort that was in it or to keep the bag 😦

Onwards to Crabtree & Evelyn! I had a coupon for $10 off a $50 purchase ^__^

I ended up getting (left to right):

  1. Lavender ultra-moisturising hand therapy (25g)
  2. Jojoba Oil moisturising body lotion (250 mL)
  3. Jojobo Oil conditioning bath & massage oil (200 mL)

I had previously purchased the Jojoba oil mini triple milled shell soap that I also have yet to use. But I loved the smell of it and jojoba oil is non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) and known for its moisturizing abilities as well as its antibacterial properties.

I can’t wait to try my new stuff!

  1. I was being told that one of Lancome milk cleanser is good. But I am not sure whether it’s the one that you got. Have you tried it yet? Do you like it?

    • No, I haven’t tried the cleanser yet, but I will put up a review of it after I have used it for a while to see if there are any long-term effects. I also want to try it on a bare face vs. how well it removes makeup. I like to try products out for a while to be sure and to give them a chance!
