David Jones Deluxe Sampler Tote-February 2016

Hey Lovelies!

I saw a blog post for these the other day, and i don't think my poor husband heard the end of it for the rest of the day.  I love these bags, and i missed the last one :(  There are 2 variants, the Pink and the Purple, after reading the reviews i went for the Pink (it had a product i preferred in it).
The bag!  Blah!  It now has yarn in it (i went to lincraft, not planning to buy anything, and walked away with 11 balls of yarn.  They had this amazing light grey cotton with glitter through it, at only $1.29 a ball.  I went to buy 10, and there were 11 there, so i bought them all.  Now to decide on a pattern.  Poor Husband just rolled his eyes, he's used to my crafty acquisitions.  There's been enough of them).
My purchase to qualify.  Have you ever seen me buy anything else?  The small size has gone up by $1, it's now $5.95 (i bought a big lavender before Christmas to qualify for free shipping on the DJ's website).
These 3 are in every bag.  An Ecoya Midnight Orchid Mini Botanic Jar Candle ($17.95-i love the scent), a Red Earth Colour Lock Nail Colour in Nebula ($18), and A Grown Alchemist Camellia and Geranium Hydrating Cream ($7.80-i've tried this from a previous DJ's tote, and love it.  Very happy to have another).
So Pretty!!

The rest of the items are exclusive to the Pink bag
Blinc Eyeliner ($0.25)-very, very wet.  Rubs off as promised, though.
Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Balm in Peach ($13.95)-the whole reason i got the Pink bag.  The purple bag had a Burts Bees lipbalm, i'm not a huge fan of their balms, and i absolutely love the Peach lanolips!
The eyeliner.  It's really black.
Red Earth Energising Daytime Moisturiser (Full size $40, the one in the bag is 30ml.  can't seem to find a size for the full size)
Antipodes Hosana H2O Skin-Plumping Serum ($16.33)
Weleda Skin Food ($4.99)
The Aromatherapy Company Naturals Orange and Jasmine Hand and Nail Cream ($17.95) This smells divine!
In Essence Aromatherapy Sleep Easy Pillow Mist ($2)-the second reason i wanted the Pink bag.  I love lavender oil on my pillow at night.

Plus vouchers for Red Earth (20%), Grown (20%), In Essence (25%), Weleda (30%) and Lanolips (BOGO-i plan on using this!).

Total= $99.22 (without including the red earth moisturiser).  So not too far off the supposed value of $130.

All in all i'm happy with the bag.  Most of the brands have been in previous bags, but only 1 repeat product, and not too many similar products (i've had bags that seem like they're all face moisturisers, body washes and body moisturisers), plus not a DJ's product to be seen (i don't necessarily dislike Dj's products, but when they're the main products in the bags it tends to annoy me).  Plus not an OPI polish to be seen!

  1. Nice post, I also bought pink one, you mentioned the price of all products which is great.My lanolips was different from yours, may be its new packing, but I love old one.

    1. Thanks! I don't know if it's just the different product, lanolips tends to have a couple of different packagings, depending on the product.

  2. Also operate a site and if you are ever interested in doing some visitor writing for me if possible feel free to let me know, im always look for people to check out my web site. Antipodes
