My bargain

When my order arrived from, this was how it looked!  Now, while I am so glad that they go to great pains to protect your order, from Royal Mail,  the mounds of shredded paper made a right mess everywhere.  No big deal I guess, but it did annoy me - just a touch.

What was in the box then? Nestled under a small forest of shredded paper, these goodies emerged.  I love Ojon.  I've bought numerous kits from QVC, however this was the first purchase I have made from Ojon's own website.  Having looked around I noticed a code that gave you a duo of the Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner for free.  That can't be right, surely! 

So I ordered the Volume Advance kit and input the code, crossed my fingers and held my breath.  Look at what arrived!!??

I was sent two 250ml bottles of Damage Reverse Shampoo and Conditioner for free,  Don't you think that's amazing?  I would tell you all about the code, but it is no longer working so it would be unfair to tease you in that way.  Still, I thought I'd share my order with you. The other great addition to ordering from is the selection of 2 free samples per order.  They are single use sachets, but it still gives you a chance to try out new products each time you order.  I am really impressed with my interaction with the Ojon site (apart from the excessive packing!).  Have you bought anything from this site? 

Lancome: Tresor Midnight Rose Gift Set

I treated myself to this Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose Fragrance Gift Set  last week.  Personally, I think it was a bargain at £34 considering the 30ml perfume alone is the same price.  I've noticed that this set keeps going in and out of stock in my local Boots.  So if you want this, I would snap it up while you still can!

The set includes Tresor Midnight Rose EDT 30ml, 3 mini Juicy Tubes in Marshmallow Electro, Lychee and Fraise and 3 Hypnose miniature mascara's (Hypnose, Hypnose Drama and Hypnose Precious Cells).  I thought this was a great chance to try the mascara.  I already know I love Juicy Tubes and I really like the fragrance.

Yeah, about the fragrance! Lancome describes it as:

A candied rose of love, warm and juicy, sweetly addictive.
A vivacious scent enhanced with intense rose and bold blackcurrant notes.

Top Notes: The caress of jasmine and peony meet fresh blackcurrant bud absolute and intense pink pepper.
Heart Notes: From the very first moment, it’s love at first sight between deep, intense rose absolute and vibrant, bold raspberry.

Base Notes: For the final touch of seduction, the dry down – Virginia cedar essence, vanilla and musk – warms up the floral notes in an addictive and modern scent.

(L-R) Lychee, Fraise and Marshmallow Electro Juicy Tubes

This would make a really lovely gift for someone special at Christmas, or perhaps mention it to someone as a 'gentle suggestion' of something you would like to find under the Christmas tree.  Failing that, you can do what I did and treat yourself!

Models Own/Diet Coke Freebies

Don't even ask why this picture is the wrong way around.  Grrrrrrrrr! Blogger is seriously vexing me tonight... 

Anyway, for those of you that are interested I thought I'd show you the Models Own/Diet Coke glosses I picked up.  You can select one gloss for free when you purchase of 2 bottles of Diet Coke (or in my case Diet Cherry Coke) from Boots.

 I got my 2 bottles of Diet Cherry Coke and selected Pure Plum from the four Christmas Kisses glosses in the collection.  I thought I'd see how I went with one, as I had never tried Models Own gloss before.  I needn't have worried. I loved them instantly.  Pure Plum is a sheer, non sticky gloss with plenty of Christmas sparkle - although it's not gritty! I cant bear that!  So on the way home, I made a slight detour for another 2 bottles of Diet Cherry Coke and grabbed Golden Nude as well.

(L-R) Golden Nude and Pure Plum

(L-R) Pure Plum and Golden Nude

I think I'll have to go back to pick up Glossy Pink and Lacquer Red before the offer expires on the 27th December.  Have you tried these glosses? What do you think?

Speedy No7 Shopping

I don't know about anyone else, but I seemed to accumulate quite a few of the £5 No7 vouchers.  Last Wednesday I popped out to Boots to see what I could spend them on.  Low and behold the Midnight Enchantment collection. 

I got...

(L-R Smoky Eyeliner in Sparkly Black, Metallic Purple and Metallic Grey Eyeshadow Stick)

Have you picked up anything from this collection? I love the packaging. It's just so pretty!

Sunday 6th November ( QVC Beauty Day) - Clarisonic Plus TSV

Tonight, as the clock strikes midnight I shall be sat with the laptop ordering the QVC Beauty Day Today's Special Value.  I know I'll be doing this, because QVC  have decided to answer my prayers, and have revealed  that the Clarisonic Plus is the star of Beauty Day.  If the rumour's I've heard are true, it's on easy pay - Result! *** UPDATE- It's on the maximum 4 Easy Pay's***

I've wanted to try a Clarisonic for ages, but I've always baulked at the cost.  I figure that if I take advantage of this deal,  I can try it without fear of making a terrible and costly mistake and if I really don't like it, I can send it back.  That''s one of the massive plus points with QVC.  I know people complain that the shipping costs are pretty high.  And they are!  But what other retail outlet lets you buy something, use it and return it for a refund within 30 days?  The no quibble refund policy is particularly advantageous when you are spending a fair bit of money.  This is a win/win situation for me and probably others out there who do not want/cannot afford to make an expensive balls up, particularly with Christmas just around the corner.

You can watch Alison Young reveals what's coming up on Beauty Day for more information about the other fantastic beauty brands taking part in Beauty Day. I'm sure there will be lots of goodies at really great prices. 

My big question is: Does anyone have a Clarisonic?  Love or loathe it? I'm interested to hear your thoughts. I'll be able to add my own to them in 3-5 working days!!!
