Elizabeth Arden Gift With Purchase!

I had a pretty low-key, but wonderful Birthday recently! We went to McLaren Vale and had a lovely lunch followed by a Joseph wine tasting experience at Primo Estate, that I had a voucher for. So there was lots of food, wine and gorgeous countryside!

Anyhoo, in the lead up to my Birthday, I might have emailed the husband with a gentle hint that I'd love the Elizabeth Arden Gift With Purchase (GWP), in case he was short on present ideas! Little did I know he'd already pre-ordered the new iPhone 6s for me! How amazing is that?! It gets better. In my hint-hint email, I made it easy for him by saying for the qualifying $70 or more purchase, I'd love either the Flawless Future Powered By Ceramide Night Cream, or the Skin Illuminating Firm and Reflect Moisturizer and for him to choose as I'd be thrilled with either. I also asked him to request free samples, because if you buy this GWP offer online, you get free samples with it. Well hubby, being the best catch in the entire universe, went and bought me both creams, and did it on separate days so he could get me two GWP's! I nearly cried I was so happy! Then add to that the snazzy new iPhone that's coming, and basically I'm just super-spoilt, very lucky and don't deserve such an amazing husband!

Let's look at the products.....

Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Night Cream (50ml) $78.00

Elizabeth Arden say: 'Flawless Future Night Cream supports skin's nighttime renewal process to help brighten and even skin tone, and ease the appearance of fine lines. This intensely hydrating moisturizer features a stress-busting, mineral-rich botanical and an exclusive fragrance technology that's clinically proven to induce a feeling of well-being and relaxation for a better night's sleep. Wake up to skin that looks revitalized, luminous and flawless.'

Skin Illuminating Firm and Reflect Moisturizer (50ml) $80.00

Elizabeth Arden say: 'This luxurious cream formula deeply hydrates and immediately brightens skin with micronized Diamond Powder. Purified mushroom extract encourages surface cell turnover and reduces the appearance of pores, while a silicon derivative replenishes skin’s essential moisture binding proteins and fights moisture loss. Vitamin C derivative fights the formation of dark spots and uneven skintone. Skin feels soft and supple, and looks even toned, fresh and luminous.'

Gift With Purchase
This is a 9-piece gift set valued at $232, free when you spend $70 or more at Elizabeth Arden, exclusively at David Jones. This is available until the 27th of September if you're wondering, so if you like what you see, haul thy arse to DJ's toot sweet! I loved the contents of this GWP, and would have bought it myself had hubby not taken the hint! Here's what you get:

~ PREVAGE Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum (5ml)
~ PREVAGE Anti-Aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser (50ml)
~ Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Serum (7 capsules, 3.2 ml)
~ Ceramide Lift and Firm Day Cream with Sunscreens (15ml)
~ Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant (30ml)
~ Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black (3ml)
~ Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Pretty Pink (3.5g)
~ Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Desert Rose (3.5g)
~ Cute Red Bag!

Free Samples
(not automatically included - you have to request them). I got...

Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Night Cream (5ml)
Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum (5ml)
PREVAGE Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum (5ml)

Most of these samples are the same products as either my qualifying purchase or what's in the GWP, but this is an advantage for me, as I now have extra to use, so everything will last me longer. All the products will last me twice as long anyway because I have two GWP sets! Plus the cute-as-pie samples are mini-sized, which is perfect for travelling, in particular my upcoming week away.

  1. Happy Biryhday! He's a good husband!
    I asked mine for the chanel body moisturiser last year, I cause him a dilemma as they had a body lotion and body creme so he brought both :)
    I've been eying off the new EA highlighter so I might need to try and sneak in to the city!

    1. Thankyou! And he sure is! Haha, seems they never know what to do when faced with a choice. It worked in our favour though!

  2. Oh my! Such great products and freebies. He's such a good husband for getting you this. How i wish my husband would do that too :)

  3. Happy birthday, you were well looked after! I am currently browsing for my own present for next month . . .

    1. Yes, I'm very lucky! I love the Prevage range, so I loved the inclusion of Prevage in the GWP.
