Last week Rach and I went to Douglas, a European perfumery, to buy a birthday gift for one of our friends. When we entered the store I got really excited – they just put up their ModelCo + Karl Lagerfeld stand! We tried some of the products and I decided to buy a lip balm. A nice Douglas employee told us that when you buy a product from the ModelCo + Karl Lagerfeld collection you could enter a giveaway, where you needed to guess how many lip balms where in a huge glass bowl. I guessed 86 and left my phone number at the register. Yesterday I received a call – I won!
This afternoon I went to our local Douglas to pick up my goodie bag. I was really excited! The goodie bag consisted of nine products. Curious?
The first item in the bag is from Douglas home spa, their own skin care brand, comparable with Rituals. These two items came with a black wooden tray what makes it look very luxury. I received from the Seathalosso Seaweed & Sea Minerals line a shower foam and a hand wash. The products have a nice, fresh, scent and will look very luxury on my sink.
Next up is the Paco Rabanne Lady Million Lucky Eau de parfum. I received a mini bottle – it has 5 ml. When I was younger – like 16-ish – I was obsessed with Lady Million. It smelled so good and I remember that every boy in my year used to wear one million. The small bottle looks really cute and has the same diamond shape as the normal lady million. Lady Million Lucky is a bit fresher than the original.
I also got the Paco Rabanne Lady Million shower gel. Normally I’m not a huge fan of perfume shower gel, but I will try this one. It smells just like the Lady Million perfume. I received a full size.
Next up is the Douglas sun lotion SPF 30. I never tried Douglas’ sun protection because I am a huge fan of Hawaiian Tropic’s sun oils. I opened the package and the product smells like any other sunscreen, which I like! I tried some on my hand and it stays quite matte, so maybe I will use this sunscreen for my face!
From Shisheido I received a Delicious Skin Bento Box, which contains the quick gentle cleanser, the soft + cushy polisher and a color-smart day moisturizer. The products don’t have a distinct smell but smell a bit powdery, which I like. I’m most curious about the color-smart day moisturizer.
I also received Volume Lashes from Eylure London. I’m not a big lash-user, but I will give this a try!
Next up are the ModelCo + Karl Lagerfeld Limited Edition Puffer Stickers. These are very cute and totally my style, so I think I’m going to use these to decorate my laptop. This is the only ModelCo + Karl Lagerfeld item in the goodie bag I’ve won, and I must say, that is a little disappointing. I’m very happy with the prize I’ve won, don’t get me wrong, but I thought because this is a contest from the ModelCo + Karl Lagerfeld collection, there would be more items from the collection.
And last but not least: a very cute pink make-up bag, totally in Chanel-style! I am very happy with this one.
Well, I hope you enjoyed reading what I’ve received, talk to you later!
