Make-up in the Mail: Kerastase, Kiehl’s & Jane Iredale

Just thought I’d do a quick post sharing some beauty items that have made their way to me recently:

1) Kerastase Cristalliste Shampoo, Conditioner & Serum – I love entering blog contests – I’ve won quite a few amazing items. My latest prize is thanks to Beauty Crazed in Canada – I received these amazing Kerastase products designed specifically for long hair. I’ve always read rave reviews about Kerastase products, so I’m super excited to try these out – PLUS how pretty is the pink packaging? (P.S. Try your luck by entering my Annabelle/Marcelle contest here – runs until July 6)

2) Neutrogena Wipes & Suncreen samples – One of the Canadian Deal blogs I follow posted about a freebie in honor of Neutrogena’s 60th anniversary. You could choose from a variety of products – and would receive samples & coupons. This was such a generous offer – the sunscreens are the perfect size to keep in my handbag for emergency touch-ups, and the wipes are going in my overnight toiletry bag.

3) Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream – This is now my 4th pot – I’ve got hubby hooked too, so we’re using these up faster. I like waiting for special offers to stock up – this time Kiehl’s was offering a deluxe sample of their Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter along with their usual 3 free samples (for those I chose: Abyssine Eye Cream, Creme with Silk Groom & Midnight Recovery Concentrate). Love getting freebies when purchasing something I needed anyway!

4) Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base, Handi Brush, Flocked Sponge & Hydration Spray – This is one of those “pinch me, am I dreaming?” blogger moments. Remember my post on my search for the best mineral make-up? The #1 product on my to-try list was this HIGHLY recommended pressed base. Well – a very kind employee at Jane Iredale contacted me and asked me to try their products! Seriously – I could not believe this was happening to me! I’m so grateful and excited – I was seriously on the verge of buying the base & brush myself (was just looking for a salon I could try it on in person). I’d never have thought to try the mist or sponge – but after 3 days of use, I’m amazed at the concealing power of the sponge! I’m giving myself a month to test this out – and then I’ll write an update. (As always – when I review a sent item, I will view it as if I paid retail price for it…and discuss whether it was worth it. Gifted or not, I blog to share my true feelings and help my readers)


Have you received anything exciting in the mail recently?
