Elizabeth Arden collaborate with the Sparrow Society once again an amazing initiative for women in South Africa. It was such a great success the last 2 years its back again for 2019. The initiative already started back in Jan and I got the latest goodie bag from Elizabeth Arden. So of course I am spreading the word and some girl power. The Elizabeth Arden bags are basically manufatcured by the Society which helps sustain local manufacturing. The initiative also helps revive lost jobs and helps empower seamstresses to start their own local businesses. So ladies get busy shopping at Elizabeth Arden so while you are looking pretty you are really helping others at the same time.

For every Elizabeth Arden purchase you get this handmade bag thats filled with seven samples. In order to get this goodie bag you need to buy 2 products of which one needs to be a moisturiser, serum or a foundation. The bag contains mostly skincare and a mini Standing Ovation mascara. So not only do you walk away with a makeup bag you get some great samples too.

So what’s in the bag?

Of course you get the cult beauty product loved by so many the Elizabeth Arden 8HR Cream Skin Protectant. Its got so many uses fro protecting your lips, glossing your cheek bones and eyes, protecting split ends its a pretty long list.

The mini Cermamide Lift and Firm Day cream SPF 30 is an anti ageing super moisturiser that lifts and plumps the skin. Yes please. Plus you get a few of the Ceramide Advanced Daily Youth Capsules these are a fav of mine. They are serum capsules that have triple anti ageing powerthat infuses skin with youth-restoring ceramides and potent botanicals for a visibly smoother, firmer and youthful appearance. I have tested these out and they are truly gorgeous.

The bag also contains two products from the Superstart range which I also love. The Probiotic Cleanser Whipped to Clay is actually the biggest sample in the bag so you are winning here. Its a whipped mousse mineral rich cleanser that minimises pores and removes makeup and impurities. Plus there is super a mini version of the Superstart Skin Renewal Booster which I also love. helps restore the healthy look of skin’s surface layer, fortifying its natural ability to repair and renew. Used before a serum or moisturizer, it boosts the results of your skincare products.

Last up one of my fav mascara’s the mini version of the Standing Ovation. Its soft formula nourishes the lashes and also gives great volume to lashes.

So when does the offer start on this goodie bag?

This cute makeup bag plus 3 gorgous goodies from Elizabeth Arden landed on my desk last week. At first I thought it was a delayed Christmas gift but then I soon found out it was an Elizabeth Arden/Sparrow Society Collaboration. Once you have read this post you are definitely going to be hitting the stores to get busy shopping. I am a massive fan of the brand but I am even more so now. Why I hear you say? Because Elizabeth Arden have partnered with one of their Make A Visible Difference partners the Sparrow Society. The non profit organisation empowers women from certain townships to be creative through design.
