Adore Beauty Haul + Gift With Purchases!

What GWP's, you ask? The ones from five weeks ago, because that's how late I am with posting this! Adore Beauty were offering the choice of a skincare or haircare GWP with a qualifying spend, an absolute no-brainer for me! I will always go for skincare over haircare products. Besides, the Skincare Discovery Pack was so good. I'm glad I jumped at the offer toot sweet, because I checked back a short while later and it had sold out. So obviously I wasn't the only one to beautygasm over the skincare pack! LOL, sorry.

Not only that, my Alpha-H Liquid Gold had nearly run out, so I was excited to see a Liquid Gold GWP, too! It's always great to get a bonus product when you're going to be buying something anyway. Although, I'm not going to lie; I often finish a beauty staple and wait for one of my favourite online stores to have a special promo, deal or GWP offer before repurchasing. I'm sure we all do this, right? I wasn't sure if the system would allow two Gift With Purchases in the same order, but it did. YAY! Way to go, Adore Beauty!

Here's what I ordered for my qualifying spend:

~ Alpha-H Liquid Gold 100ml
~ Benefit World Famous Neutrals Most Glamorous Nudes Ever Eyeshadow Kit
~ The Balm How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream Palette

Cute packaging, much?

Here's my Alpha-H Liquid Gold 50ml GWP plus two free samples....

I do love my Liquid Gold!

~ Alpha-H Liquid Gold 50ml
~ Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream (5ml sample)
~ Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery (sample sachet)

Of course there was a free Tim Tam with my order as well, but that didn't make it into the photo. LOL

A closer look at the palettes I bought....

It took an Apples palette to pop my The Balm cherry!

Can't go wrong with Neutrals!

And here's the Skincare Discovery Pack GWP:

Packed full of goodies!

Contents -
~ 2 x Benefit The Porefessional (total 6ml)
~ 2 x La Roche-Posay Uvidea XL 30SPF Extreme Fluid (total 6ml)
~ Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum (5ml)
~ ASAP Daily Facial Cleanser (15ml)
~ Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Eye Cream (3ml)
~ Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque (22ml)
~ Alpha-H Instant Facial (30ml)
~ Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% (50ml)
~ SK-II Facial Treatment Mask (1 piece)

Skincare makes me happy :)

I'm thrilled with the products in the Discovery skincare pack! There are brands here I've never tried before (SK-II and Skinstitut) and particular products I haven't tried from brands I already love, such as the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque and Alpha-H Instant Facial. Can't wait to have a play with my new skincare goodies!

What's your favourite skincare brand?


  1. I love the balm! Im interested to hear what you think of the blushes once you've used them for a bit!

    1. It's interesting using cream blushes as I'm used to powder, but I like them. Some shades better than others obviously!

  2. Crikey you did so well Di - now that's smart shopping! Xxx

    1. Yes it did work out rather well, Kat. Quite pleased with myself! xxx

  3. The benefit kit looks pretty awesome!!

    What an impressive gwp as well! I think you did the right thing going for the skincare as well!

    1. Yes, it seems heaps better than the hair one and sold out a lot faster too!

  4. Di, you got so many lovely products!

  5. amazing goodies, that skincare bag! Wow want everything lol

    I agree, you can never go wrong with the neutrals from benefit, love the look of the palette, I've never seen it before!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Helena! I'll check out your blog. :)

  8. Wow! That is such a high quality GWP! I love everything in that skincare discovery pack! I need to start paying more attention to when these GWP offers come up.

    Oh and btw I think I would get a bit distracted in choosing a shade from that The Balm palette! Lol!

  9. I'm drooling! That's a great haul and some awesome GWP!!

  10. You picked up some amazing products, I don't often see GWP on beauty websites, what a great incentive!!!

    Re. movie chat - Have you seen the martian? I saw it last week and it was a good but frustrating movie!

    1. I'm always looking out for GWPs, I love them! No, I haven't seen it yet! I want to though, it's getting rave reviews. What was frustrating (no spoilers, lol)? I've won double passes to The Walk and Miss You Already so I'll be seeing those on the weekend! Can't wait. Love our movie chats, by the way :)

  11. OMG I'm so jealous of that skincare discovery pack! Some super amazing products in there, I should sign up to Adore Beauty's newsletter it turns out..? :P

  12. That gift looks amazing! I am lusting after those apple balms now too. They are so damn cute. Bron x

    1. I know, the packaging certainly helps! They look nice on, too. x
