David Jones Beauty Bag - Feb 2014


David Jones has their new beauty book out, and of course that means there is a new beauty bag!!!!  For those who don't know, the beauty bag is available for $19.95 with any beauty purchase, and is usually worth around the $100 mark. 

 I ended up buying myself 2 Dr Bronners Pure-Castile Liquid soaps, one in peppermint and one in rose.  I've heard about these from several different sources, my favourite body mod forum swears buy them (especially the peppermint) for cleaning healed piercings (seeing as i have a few of those i want to give it a go), and Gooroobeauty over on youtube has had them in her empties recently, and said they're great for cleaning brushes.  At $3.75, they're great value, and i'm excited to try them.

Then there's my bag.  i got bag #1 (there were no bag #2 at my local DJ's).  It's a gorgeous black bag with a gold DJ's store on the front, and a smaller clear bag full of goodies, valued at over $109!  What i can't get across here is just how amazing this bag smells, the products within are all wonderfully scented.

On to the products.......

 Green People Organic Lifestyle- an orange scented shower gel.  smells beautiful, and is 84% certified organic (30ml sample bottle)

David Jones Milk and Honey body wash - enriched with manuka honey.  DJ's products are always great quality, without paying through the nose (60ml)

Dr Bronners Lavender Soap bar - more of this to try!  This is a soap bar compared to the ones i bought (which are liquid), but it smells like a field of lavender.  So happy to have another one to try out (34g)

David Jones Milk and Honey Cream -  same as the body wash, smells great and is the same great quality as the body wash (60ml).

Natio Aromatherapy Body Creme -  Body creme with shea and cocoa butter, and orange, lavender and ylang ylang oil.  Perfect for winter, and another item that just smells divine (150g-full size)

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Au Lait Body Milk - smells slightly like sunscreen.  will have to give it a go and see what it's like :) (50ml)

Kosmea  Rosehip Oil - I love rosehip oil (or at least my skin does).  This one is certified organic (3ml)

Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle and Pore Reducing Cream -  I'm excited about this one.  Not sure much about the wrinkle reducing (at 27 i don't think i'm too wrinkly), but the pore reducing, if it works, would be a major blessing.  relatively unscented and in the cutest little tub (7ml)

Philosophy Hope In A Jar Night cream - I've heard so many great things about Hope In A Jar, so this is another sample that i can't wait to try (7ml)

LDN:SKINS fake tan - i don't normally fake tan (even though i own that many tanning products it's not funny), but i'm interested to try this one.  It has organic ingredients and it doesn't stink (it actually smells of lavender).  This is in Tone 2, medium (60ml)

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo - Bah!  another of these.  It's an OK dry shampoo, this little bottles are great for travelling, but i can buy the same quality for $2 at Target.  (50ml)

OPI Nail Polish - Nice, neutral shade of OPI.  I know a lot of people would love this, i'm actually not a fan of OPI (it really doesn't last on my nails).  It's a colour that shouldn't show chips too easily and will be great for those times a subdued nail is called for (3.75ml)

InEssence Tahitian Escape aromatic oil - blend of frangipani, jasmine, patchouli and orange.  Smells gorgeous, perfect for those freezing days where winter feels like it's never coming back (9ml)

I think bags like this are a perfect way to discover new products.  This one is full of beautifully scented products, plenty of fair trade and organic, with a few cult ones thrown in for good measure.  Definitely worth while grabbing one whilst they're still available.
