My Post-Christmas Sales Haul (Part 1)

I set out for the post-Christmas sales with only two purchases in mind: Benefit's Glossytown lipgloss set and a Paco Rabanne Lady Million gift set. From the title of the post, you may be able to tell that I purchased a little more than planned....

I did get my hands on the Benefit Ultra Shines lipgloss set, and they are so incredibly cute! I already own a few of the original lipglosses, and have an Ultra Shine in 'Foxy Lady'. I unfortunately couldn't find a Lady Million gift set that was discounted, so I refrained from buying it :/ Anyway, I have indulged in two (*shock*) perfume sets for myself. Guerlain Idylle EDP with body lotion and Carolina Herrera 212 VIP EDP with body lotion. I love perfume, it is one of my (many?) weaknesses. I may do a perfume stash post at some time, though I am slightly afraid to!

Next up are a couple of Philosophy gift sets: Gingerbread Girl and Jingle Joy (shower gel & body lotion). I haven't used Philosophy products before, but I have heard good things about them. What better way to test out the range than when it's on sale?

These were not on sale, but I couldn't resist. So from the standard Andrea Fulerton at Superdrug collection I have the gold & silver glitter puffs with a glossy topcoat  (rrp £5.99). The gift set on the right I think may be from the Christmas gifts collection, but then again I may be wrong. This has pink and purple glitter puffs, a glossy top coat, a pot of gemstones and a 'picker-upper' for the gemstones (rrp £12).

Last but not least in this post, a Scuderia Ferrari cap to add to my collection. There's nothing much to say about this, except, I better be careful or Ferrari caps will be becoming my next addiction!!

I love the post-Christmas sales, and my sisters, my niece and I go together every year :) There's a lot of joy in finding something you want at a discounted price. I'm sure every woman loves that feeling!

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?


  1. lovely haul! hows the guerlain perfume? love the bath n body lotions:) x

    1. I haven't used it yet! It's one I've wanted for a while, but last year the gift sets all sold out quickly, and I never buy myself full price perfume, I just treat myself in the sales, so glad I got it this year :) x
