Clarins Super Beauty Gift at House of Fraser Glasgow - Last Chance!



A quick public service announcement for all my beauty loving Scottish babes today. If you're a fan of a Gift with Purchase - Clarins are pretty much doing the best one ever right now in House of Fraser. Their Super Beauty Gift event is taking place in store only and it ends tomorrow (14th April). This is not a drill. Go go go. 

So if you'll be cutting about the shops in Glasgow or Edinburgh after work today or tomorrow (lets be honest, what else will we be doing in this miserable rain guys) make sure you pop in. It's a great excuse to stock up on some of your Clarin's favourites and get a fab reward for doing so. When you buy two or more items from the counter (one of which must be a skincare item - but the lovely gals will keep you right) you can choose 4 complementary items worth £54 from the following; 


  • Gentle Eye Make Up Remover 50ml;
  • Water Comfort One Step Cleanser 100ml;
  • Gentle Refiner 30ml;
  • Beauty Flash Balm 30ml;
  • Hydra-Essentiel Serum 15ml;
  • Extra Firming Serum 10ml;
  • Super Restorative Serum 10ml;
  • Exfoliating Body Scrub 100ml;
  • Moisture Rich Body Lotion 100ml;
  • Foot Beauty Treatment Cream 50ml;
  • Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate 100ml;
  • Tonic Body Treatment Oil 30ml.

They are all sample sizes but I must say, they are some of the most generous sample sizes I've seen in a long time. They're at half the size of full sized products (some of them are more than half of a full size) which is brilliant. No-one likes a stingy sample. 

I love gift with purchases, especially ones where you can tailor your own gift like this, as its a great chance to try a few new bits from a brand you already love without the risk of spenders regret if you don't actually like the product. I've been trying all the samples out above and have discovered a few items that I know are going to be favourites for a long time. My top picks from the items available in the Super Beauty Gift have to be the following (it was a hard choice);

Moisture Rich Body Lotion

This has been a favourite of mine for a long time. My skin is very dry and eczema prone and I used to be guilty of being a bit neglectful when it came to moisturising my whole body as I found it never made a huge difference anyway. That is until I discovered this miracle from Clarins a few years ago. A luxurious body lotion that isn't greasy, sinks in to the skin wonderfully and smells heavenly. Yes please. My skin feels nourished and soft every time I use the product and it doesn't irritate my sensitivities. I am addicted. It makes a noticeable difference to dry skin, particularly scaly winter legs,  immediately from first use.

I am so amazed to see such a huge sample included in a gift with purchase (100ml - hello!) and definitely, definitely recommend that you choose this as one of your fantastic four if you're going to be scooping up a GWP this weekend if you're a dry skin sufferer. Also a great opportunity if you're an eczema sufferer to try a new lotion that might work for you like it did for me - as you know I'm a huge advocate of always try before you buy.


Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate 

Ohhh my. I think I might have died and gone to spa heaven with this product. I'm not one for investing a huge amount in body care, other than body lotion, and prefer to invest on products for my face but I think that sentiment might have just gone out the window. I can't even describe how this smells other than like the best spa day ever.

A bath dosed with this little blue treat has quickly become my favourite way to unwind after a long day. And you only need a wee capful - a little goes a long way. The 100ml bottle from the beauty gift is sure to last you well. Just long enough to become completely addicted to the aromatherapy loveliness anyway!

Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream

This classic cream exfoliator was a definite win for me when it comes to discovering new skincare. I enjoy the results of physical exfoliators but sometimes find them too abrasive and drying for my sensitive skin. This non foaming option was very gentle on my skin. The natural microbeads are very finely ground and I loved the results. My skin felt smoother, softer and a little bit brighter right from the first use.

The sample size is again fantastic (do I even need to say that at this point!?) 30ml is more than half the size of the usual product (50ml) and all you need is a pea sized amount so very generous for a gift with purchase.

Water Comfort One Step Cleanser

Whilst I am a big double cleanse with all the bells and whistles kind of gal when it comes to skincare I think a product like the Water Comfort One Step Cleanser is essential to have in your product repertoire. Why? Because we all get lazy now and then when it comes to skincare. Whether its after a night out or just when you're feeling a bit sluggish and down we've all had those nights where we commit the cardinal skincare sin of forgetting to take off our makeup. I love a one-step product like this for nights when I can't face a full skincare routine but still feel guilty enough about not removing my makeup. 

Clarins offering does the job wonderfully. It smells like peach, is very gentle and removes everything with a few sweeps (thought it takes a bit of soaking for heavy eye make up - just hold a saturated cotton pad over your eye for a minute first to loosen it then it comes away easily). Its such a refreshing product to use, especially after one too many. Just pap on a bit of moisturiser after and you have the easiest skincare routine ever for lazy days. 



Will you be rushing in to town tomorrow morning to scoop this amazing Super Beauty gift? I would if I were you - it's an absolute bargain. Especially if you were planning on stocking up on a few Clarins necessities anyway. Obviously I recommend you choose all four of my favourites but I'm bias, you do you. That's the beauty of a GWP you can tailor to suit yourself.
