Hello My Lovelies!
Hope you're all having a great weekend so far? After a pretty tiresome week I'm glad to be sat down blogging and writing about some gorgeous products for you lovelies. Today, I'm going to be talking about a simply gorgeous gift with purchase set (exclusive to Harrods) and who doesn't love a good old gift with purchase and who doesn't love Harrods?! Whether you're looking to try more from a brand, give as a gift or just to accumulate a few more beauty bags (us beauty lovers can't get enough) then a gift with purchase is always a bonus to spending x amount on a certain brand. Estee Lauder is a brand close to my heart, as it's what my mum has always used and since getting into skincare and beauty I've also taken a shine to Estee Lauder (especially my beloved ANR II) To qualify for this fabulous gift worth over £155, you need to spend £75 with Estee Lauder, which can be done, especially if you're in the market for some new skincare & make-up, or maybe shopping around for a mother's day gif? I've trialed a few of the products already, so that I could give you an initial thoughts kind of review on a few of the products! I hope you enjoy this review lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below!

Firstly, you're presented with two gorgeous beauty cases (which have already featured in half of my blog photo shoots) They have a slight snake-skin pattern and are a lovely light grey, one is very large and the other is small and a perfect size for a daily make-up bag. I really don't think you can have enough of these type of bags! I seem to have a draw full of them, but they all get used. Next up we have the Re-Nutriv Intesnice Smoothing Hand Creme (Full size £56), which is described as a sumptuous hand creme, which uses advanced anti-spot technology to help reduce the look of dark sports and to keep yours hands supple and visibly smoothed. I have to admit I'm not a huge hand creme user and at the moment this one is a little rich for me, but I've been using this in the evening, as part of my pamper routine! The next product is the Re Nutriv Hydrating Creme Cleanser (Full size £44), which is a rich, luxurious creme cleanser that cushions and conditions the skin whist gently removing impurities. I've used this product a few times already and i really like it, I don't find this product too rich and it definitley leaves my skin feeling supple. Onto one of my favourite products the Re- Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Corecting Creme (50ml £175) I must admit I almost choked when I was researching this product and found that it's top level price was over £600!! It definitely made me feel lucky to have a generous sample size within this gift set. Described as being an ultra-luxurious and powerful creme, this moisturiser is designed to repair, hydrate, lift, firm and leave your skin radiant and energised. I've been using this creme first thing in the morning and last thing at night and I'm in love! It's extremely moisturising without leaving a residue and after leaving it on overnight, I definitely find I wake up with a firmer and far more radiant complexion.
Next up we have the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Creme (Full size £90), described as being a deeply hydrating, age-resisting eye creme that brightens the under eye are, whilst reducing puffiness and dry lines. I've been using this eye-cream daily for over a week and I'm definitely impressed by it. It's very softening and feels nourishing, which is nice as I do use quite a lot of concealer and can feel my under-eye area starting to get more uncomfortable and dry (god damn dark circles) I haven't used it long enough to make a full decision on it, but so far so good! The next product in the gift set is the Sumptuous Extreme Mascara (Full Size £24) and I'm always grateful for sample sized mascara, especially as I spend so much time travelling between work, home and Daniel's house! The packaging is just beautiful and I love how sleek and sophisticated it looks. However, I've found that it clumps my lashes slightly and I'm definitley a lover of a more natural clump-free lash. Finally, we have the Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Scarlet Siren (Full Size £22) I'm a huge fan of Estee Lauder Pure Color lipsticks, so I was really excited to see the shade Scarlet Siren, especially as I love a statement Red lip. Scarlet Siren is quite a classic red with a glossy opaque coverage. It's definitely a brightening Red and I think that it could be possibly more suited to someone with cool undertones.
I have really enjoyed trying this Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase worth over £155. It has given me a chance to try the premium Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv range, which I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise. I definitely think the Re-Nutriv range is suited to drier skin types and more mature skin, but saying that I haven't found the formulation too much for my normal/combination skin. I especially liked the Re-Nutriv face creme, eye creme and the Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick. If you're looking to treat yourself or someone special to some Estee Lauder then this gift set is such a bonus to have. I also think this would make such an amazing Mother's Day Gift and I've already had my mum asking about a few of the products included! I would love to hear your thoughts below, do you think this gift with purchase would make a perfect treat?
This exclusive Harrods offer runs from 11/02/16 - 06/03/16 and is available on Estee Lauder's purchases of £70 and above
Lots of Love
