As far as gifts go, this one is pretty unbeatable. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bigger gift with purchase. It’s worth about sixty billion pounds.
OK, it’s worth over £600. But, hello, SIX HUNDRED POUNDS! Who is mad enough to give away that much stuff in a single hit? Harvey Nichols, that’s who. Not a store you’d really associate with getting a load of free stuff – it’s one of the most prestigious shopping destinations in the world, after all – not the sort of place you go into expecting surprise discounts or impromptu money-off vouchers…
But here we are, with a whopping great big tote bag full of high-end beauty products and samples. It’s so much booty that the sturdy tote bag it all comes in appears to have reinforced rope handles. And from today, if you spend £195 on three or more products from Beyond Beauty at Harvey Nics then you get this enormous beauty haul, completely free.
It’s almost an entire beauty and grooming regime – everything from super serums to luxury toothpastes, bath essences to overnight tans. Obviously £195 is a big spend, but I’m taking a wild guess that HN are aiming to catch all of the people who have started their Christmas shopping and are buying a load of gifts anyway – it’s the classic temptation, isn’t it? A little something just for you as a reward for buying all of those nice presents!
Only it’s not just a “little something”, it’s a massive something – and there are a few bits and pieces in the GWP that you could feasibly wrap up and add to the presents pile, including the EOS lip balm gift set, the Foreo cleansing device and the Rodial Eye Masks…
I’ve listed all of the contents here on this page, so take a good look – I’ll wager that more than a few of your favourites are on there. But it’s always the new and mysterious things that grab my attention the most – I love trying new brands but hate wastage, so these little trial sizes are just perfect. Guilt-free beauty testing, usually done when I’m travelling and I dig into my enormous stash of minis!
And my Beyond Beauty picks? I’d be going in for a mixture of Christmas presents and things that need restocking in my bathroom cabinet: the Sleep Together gift set from This Works (£26 here), Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist, (£49 here), their gorgeous Thermal Cleansing Balm (£46 here) and then the Ole Henriksen Three Little Wonders kit, (£80 here). Blatantly that’s actually all for myself, but I have to at least pretend that I’d give some away…
I’ve listed the full contents below, just in case my pictures haven’t done the gift justice – you can also find more details and shop at Beyond Beauty here.
