Special Buy: David Jones Deluxe Beauty Edit Bag!

Hi guys! I got an email from David Jones alerting me to a 'special buy', this Deluxe Beauty Edit Bag, valued at over $250, which you could purchase for just $39.95. This was touted as an Online Exclusive, however there was no option to buy it online, so I was confused, along with other eager beauty lovers complaining on the David Jones Facebook page! Come Monday, I immediately emailed hubby the link and asked if he could check it out for me, thinking he'd go to DJ's in his lunch break. My awesome hubby left his desk immediately on the quest for this bag (isn't he amazing?), and lucky he did! He was first told they had sold out (eeeeek!), then another SA checked and they had received a few more in. YAY! So here I am blogging about it today, and I'm pretty excited to get stuck in and try out these 'deluxe' beauty products!

Here's what I got in my Bag:

~ Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
~ Sampar So Much To Dew Midnight Mask
~ Weleda Skin Food
~ Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
~ Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
~ Shiseido Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream
~ Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules
~ Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Cream

~ Guerlain Abeille Royale Daily Repair Age-Defying Serum
~ Ella Bache Eternal Beautifying Eye Cream
~ Philosophy Purity Exfoliating Clay Mask
~ Molton Brown Vetiver & Grapefruit Bath & Shower Gel
~ MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base
~ Clarins Lip Comfort Oil in Candy
~ L'Occitane Immortelle Reset Overnight Oil-In Serum
~ Cremorlab T.E.N. Starter Kit (Fresh Water Gel & Mineral Treatment Essence)
~ Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Eau De Parfum
~ Versace Dylan Blue Eau De Parfum
~ Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau De Parfum

As you can see, this bag is filled with samples of high-end brands. I'm really keen to try the majority of them, and now that I've photographed and blogged about it, I can LOL #beautybloggerlife I need to mention how cute the Good Girl fragrance sample is; look at the mini high heel bottle, you guys! I'm in love! I'm also super happy to get a weeks supply of Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules as I love the effect they have on my skin, but never buy them for myself. Also included is a $10 David Jones Beauty Gift Card which can be redeemed on selected brands included in the bag.

The page on the David Jones website advertising this offer has been removed, but then it was never available to buy online. I know that David Jones Adelaide Central Plaza has sold out and they are unsure if they are getting anymore in, so if you're interested it's best to try your local David Jones beauty counter. This offer was super popular though, as you can imagine!

Did you pick up this Beauty Bag? What are your thoughts on it?


  1. Man I’d get it just for that perfume bottle! Haha. I knew it would was going to be crazy getting one of these and I just couldn’t deal with the anxiety and stress of trying to find one (LOL), so I left this time. But they have such a collection of luxe samples! And the samples do seem pretty generous in size too.

    1. Yes you're right, the sample sizes are quite generous. And the high heel is so cute!

  2. It's such a shame that it is not available online!! I might have to go in town and see if I can get my hands on one, so many good samples and such generous sizes.

  3. This is such a generous beauty bag of high end goodies. I can totally understand why it's been so popular. I love the high heel shaped perfume bottle!


  4. What a good husband! Terrible about the mixed messages from David Jones. The pack looks amazing value for money! Great way to try before committing to full sizes.

    1. Yeah there's a lot of products I haven't tried yet, so this will be handy!

  5. Yay for your husband! There are some amazing products in there, what a bargain!

  6. It's awesome your husband could pick this up for you! Such great value, I wonder if they would have any in Brisbane left? probably not but I might go see in my lunch break tomorrow! :)

    Hope that you have had a lovely weekend :) We went to a wedding which was a lot of fun :)
