I’ve gathered five beauty events you can grab luxury goody bags in US and UK. We love to splurge on department store makeup and skin care and to be honest – who doesn’t? I also have the review part 2 of my Space NK Beauty Edit Sample Bag to share.
It’s that time of year when we start seeing major gift with purchases that put us on alert that the Spring/Summer 2017 Collections are just around the corner. I love this time of year because beauty retailers around the world tend to offer more value gift with purchase. I have very detailed reviews from brands – Radical, Natura Bisse, Diptyque, Mio, Lipstick Queen and Dermarche Labs. You keep seeing huge amounts of praise being tossed around for them and below is my opinion.
UPDATE 9/4/2017: See Space NK Autumn Beauty Edit spoilers here. Plus, Barneys Love Yourself beauty bag 2017 full spoilers in my post here.

See the first part of my Space NK Beauty Edit Sample Bag review in the post here. Let start from my new favorite eye cream. It works extremely fast!
Radical Skincare Eye Revive Crème Review (5ml) | Full size $125
Antioxidants, active peptides and proteins team up in this light cream to target signs of aging around the delicate eye contour. The result is restored elasticity and firmness and a visibly noticeable decrease in crow’s feet, wrinkles, discoloration and puffiness around the eyes.
- 4-in-1 Eye Cream: Hydrates, Puffiness, Dark Circles and Wrinkles
- Instant Soothing, Cooling and Tightening sensation
- Decreases discoloration around eye area including dark circles and wrinkles
IcanGWP Review: The luxury beige eye cream is so light. Much easier to apply and the same or better results as heavy creams. It sinks in quickly and hydrate skin around my eyes immediately! I love its moisturizing staying power. The best thing is it doesn’t roll when foundation is applied over it. I feel this has really helped take away any dryness. There is a wee bit of fragrance in this product but the amount is really low.
Where this really shines, though, is in its ingredients! I just want to dump my regular eye cream once I saw the 50 goodies in this gem. I will not gift this sample to anyone, no way! This product contains a salt form of ATP (new organic living thing). Research has shown that it has strong potential as a skin-restoring ingredient and as a soothing agent. And it worked extremely fast! This product should do what it promised and I could see the result within a few days!
I also love the concept of this brand: “Create the strongest skincare that can be used on even the most sensitive skins”.
The founders Liz and Rachel, have taken Radical Skincare from 2 stores in the United States, Barneys New York, to over 800 prestige stores in 15 countries in less than 3 years. True to their commitment to put the money in the bottle and not into advertising or celebrities, Radical Skincare has grown based on its Radical Results and word of mouth.
Radical Skincare Eye Revive Crème is an uncompromisingly high quality eye cream that is filled with wonderful ingredients. This is my favorite product in the post. This is one item that truly worth the splurge!
Barneys New York has the greatest trial kit from Radical Skincare: Radical Skincare On The Move Kit $70. It’s a steal, full size Radical skincare cleanser is $45.
Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil in Pink Bluff Review (3.1g) |Full size $22
Inspired by New York City’s Chinatown and Roman Polanski’s movie by the same name. A kooky collection of brightly colored, super sheer “draw on” glosses. This jumbo-sized glossy pencil comes with a jumbo-sized sharpener.
IcanGWP Review: It’s a big surprise how youthful your lips could appear with the right texture, shade and finish. I simply found one. It’s not the most pigmented, most creamy, most plumped, most glossy but it’s just the right cocktail to have the intoxicating innocent look. This lip pencil from Lipstick Queen is very hydrating and super easy to wear. It’s not sticky even a little bit. This shade provides sheer pink with velvet and slight glossy finish. It’s so lively and cheerful, like you have put a lot of filters on the lips. Think Elle Fanning, lips like that. Lipstick beginners will find this item a great staple for their purse.
Natura Bisse Tensolift Neck Cream Review (5ml) | Full size $308
Rich cream that gives your neck and décolleté a visibly younger-looking appearance. Its cutting-edge ingredients, like micropeptides and collagen and elastin amino acids, work together to make skin look firm and supple. Able to minimize dark spots, it also provides a bright and even-toned appearance to your skin. TENSOLIFT NECK CREAM will provide your décolleté with a flawless appearance that needs no accessorizing.
IcanGWP Review: $308 – This ultra luxurious Natura Bisse Tensolift Neck Cream is worth half of our paycheck! This high-end skincare product is pricey for a reason. This gem is enriched with multiple anti-aging ingredients proven to help create a younger looking neck. It promises to prevent the effects of aging on the neck, decollete and breast area.
When we get older, our skin loses some of its built-in ability to produce oil and collagen results in dry, sagging and aging neck. I am not seeing problems with my neck. Therefore, there’s only a few neck creams I’ve tried. This is one of the nicest neck creams! I adore the texture of this product. Unlike many of the heavy neck creams in the market, this one is instead a very whipped cream like a nourishing elixir! It’s a fabulous mousse-like neck cream. I like the smell (minty). There are very few creams that you can actually feel tightening on your skin, this is the one. I love that there are no harsh “nasties” to make you feel that tightening.
Prevention is most important to me. I can’t say that I have seen a decrease in lines but I could see slight improvement on the uneven skin. It could buy you a few years before getting a surgery lift. If you feel like the need to improve the overall appearance of your neck, see if you can get a sample before dropping the $$$.
Natura Bisse Diamond Luxury Eye Set $384 and Natura Bissé Diamond Instant Glow Set $88 (both sets are out of stock at Bluemercury!) The latter set may include in the upcoming Space NK UK Spring Beauty Edit Goodie Bag 2017 this week!
Diptyque Eau Duelle Eau de Parfum Review (12ml) | Full size $90
Vanilla is refined between shadow and light. Brightened up by a vibrant top note of cold spices, then made sensual by black frankincense, its powers of seduction are devilishly engaging.
IcanGWP Review: I am so lucky to accidently find my new perfume obsession from Diptyque! I dislike it on the paper but totally die for it later. It’s somehow pepperly and too intense at first but then, it changes. And the sweetest scent with a tiny hint of spicy is what’s left behind. Beautiful, light fragrance makes me so happy -like endorphin flow!
Diptyque 5 Mini Candles Set $78 (Five 1.2 oz/35g single-wick candles)
Dermarche Labs Roloxin Lift Instant Wrinkle Smoothing Mask Review (0.07oz x2) | Full size $79
Roloxin Lift is an instant skin-smoothing treatment applied in just minutes that lasts 12 hours. It’s an entirely new way to revitalise your skin – and your sense of self. By improving facial texture and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, it will leave you with refreshed, truly radiant skin.
As Roloxin Lift dries, it smoothes the skin, temporarily reducing the appearance of wrinkles and pores, leaving the skin with improved texture and a bright event skin tone.
Instant reduction of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 7 minutes.
This product is an Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough winner and received the Good Housekeeping Seal in 2015. Suggested Usage:
- -Activate sachet by squeezing vigorously for 20 seconds.
- -Apply an even layer over cleansed damp skin of the face (including eye area) and neck.
- -Rinse it away after it dries to a white powder, rinsing thoroughly with only the hands and water. Pat dry.
IcanGWP Review: I like this mask because it is unique and it’s fun. The product, after I squeezed, has a white runny lotion texture. It dries very fast. It turns into white powder as described above. It tightens my skin for a while. Make sure you secure your hair well. I made a mistake and my hair was glued to the dry powder! Average review is 3.5. Here’s the thing; people in the 30+ group love it but not others. Isn’t that interesting? This product is fragrance free.
Mio The Activist Firming Active Body Oil Review (30ml) | Full size $48
The Activist is packed with nourishing Omegas, antioxidants and vitality giving vitamins. This skin firming body oil will give your skin resilience and bounce. What’s more, it sinks in quickly and smells gorgeous! Strong is the new skinny, so go on and show us your strength!
IcanGWP Review: I finally get my hands on a Mio product. It comes in an opaque bottle with a pump. It is such an ideal bottle for facial or body oil, no mess!
Mio body oil is a daily nourishing oil like no other. If you have very dry skin, you likely know it can be difficult to find a moisturizer that’s rich and soothing yet not greasy. Thankfully Mio gets it right with The Activist Firming Active Body Oil! I added a few drops to my moisturizer and applied it daily to shower damp skin to seal in extra moisture. A little goes a long way.
Although it seems greasy at first, it absorbs quickly to a non-greasy finish. This is a unique resilience-building, antioxidant body oil—sealing in vital moisture for strong, supple skin. My skin feels so silky smooth and fit! More to love: This lightweight oil also smells devine.
FYI – If you are expecting it’s a good idea to avoid certain Vitamin A ingredients in the skincare. It’s not the end of the world but I am sharing what I know. B-glowing is carrying Mama Mio here 40% off.
Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser Review (15ml) | Full size £62
Tata Harper’s Regenerating non-foaming cleanser freshens the skin’s appearance as it cleanses, without drying it out.
With this product you receive a double detox and yet your skin won’t feel tight and dry after you use it due to aloe, pomegranate, and neroli extracts.
IcanGWP Review: I have mixed feelings about this product. The paste is thick and glue-y. It has a pleasing fresh scent that soothes and calms while using.
I find the scrub beads are a bit abrasive. My cheeks felt a little scratchy. The result is fantastic. On one occasion my skin was dull and needed exfoliation. After only using Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser, I noticed that it truly cleansed my clogged pores and leaves my skin smooth and radiant in no time. Some cleanser or exfoliator did their job but I still need some extractions or chemical exfoliant.
All Tata Harper products are
- Paraben-free; phthalate-free; sulfate-free
- 100% natural ingredients
- Made in the USA
A nice essential set: Tata Harper Skincare Daily Essentials Set $70
KAT BURKI Intense Recovery Rose Hip Eye Serum (7ml) | Full size £100
Powered by the strengthening antioxidants of Rose Hip coupled with Vitamin C, DMAE and Retinol, this fast-penetrating, strengthening anti-aging formula reduces the look of all visible signs of aging: puffiness, dark circles, uneven skin tone, dryness and fine lines.
High-end beauty products are expensive, so it’s a good idea to first have a complete understanding of what you would like your skin care routine to achieve. Space NK beauty edit gift bag is the best gift with purchase you can find in North America, only Barneys New York Love Yourself Bag is on par with it.
