Try Me…Secret Potions from ESPA

ESPA’s gift with purchase is utterly gorgeous. The “Try Me..Love Me” skincare collection has been inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the cute little box is filled with four “secret potions”! Completely up my street.

The four “potions” are picked from a range of ten, including Radiance Skin Mask and the 24-Hour Replenishing Moisturisers, and there’s also a chance for each recipient of the “Try Me” box to win £500 worth of ESPA skincare products.

I love a gift with purchase that has a little thought behind it, this is definitely one to look out for! I’m a bit of a miniature product collector because I travel so much – I find the trial sizes absolutely perfect for just throwing into my hand luggage. It’s how I discover loads of my new skincare finds, too!

This GWP runs from now until the 31st of May and you can find ESPA at spas, salons and online:

    Ohhh great offer :-) I’ve checked out the link but there doesn’t seem to be any reference to the GWP, actually on the site do we have to enter a code at checkout ?
    Also can you recommend any good products to try from ESPA, thinking to give the cleanser a go :-) xxxx

    I have seen the range before on QVC, it seems to have mixed reviews on their website, but this is for the balm one I was thinking of the milk cleanser, I am still looking for a good replacement cleanser for the Rosa fina discontinued one, I’m using Pai cleanser and I’ve gone back to liz Earle C&P for now and am giving sanctuary hot cloth cleanser a trial, not bad but could be better :-)
    Also Ruth can you recommend a good illuminating all over face powder, I have used Clinique gentle light powder for years but the gave discontinued it, sighs :-(, anyway I’m struggling abit to find a replacement thank you xxxx

      @Love all over? Hmmm. I’m not big on powders, to be honest – setting powder, I assume you mean, with a subtle glow? xx

    HI @love in a mist,
    I’ve checked for you and your nearest stockists are in Derby (Bliss Health & Beauty or Heaven V @ Virgin Active), Glossop (Health & Beauty Studio) or Manchester (Harvey Nichols or Le Petit Spa @ Malmaison). If these are not convenient for you, keep an eye on our website for the launch of Try Me Love Me online. We have some very exciting things coming up soon! Emma

    So, how do you feel the espa skincare products hold up against Revive? I’ve been using Revive for a while now and not I’m not so sure that I’m willing or ready to try anything else. :)
