I’m a bit of a beauty gift with purchase snob. I prefer beauty goody bags that contain a good mix of several brands, especially skincare. It makes all the difference to discover a new skincare product and really fall for it without splurging $$$ for full size.
Space NK is our luxury beauty gift bag heaven and they are now offering the biggest gift with purchase of the year called Space NK Spring Beauty Edit with any $285 purchase, through 2/18 only. The gift bag contains 30 deluxe samples from brands like Diptyque, Sunday Riley, Hourglass, Chantecaille, Omorovicza, Verso, 111SKIN and more which are worth over $470! And here’s my first review post of the Space NK Beauty Edit Gift Bag 2019!

Ilia Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Forever (0.04 oz) | Full size $28
Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream (7ml) | Full size $110
IcanGWP Review: I’m so glad Space NK carries this green beauty brand, Ilia. The well-thought clean formula lip conditioner is something rare and I want my lips to love so that I can buy more shades. ILIA’s signature, bestselling Tinted Lip Conditioning really is amazing. Packed with organic ingredients including castor seed oil, jojoba seed oil, sesame seed oil, cocoa butter, olive fruit oil, orange peel wax, beeswax, jasmine oil and vitamin E – it closely resembles human sebum.
As it turns out, Ilia lip conditioner is super comfortable to wear. It would be the only one lip product you want to put on. The color payoff is great, buildable light to medium. It creates a natural look that is neither matte, glossy, oily, sticky nor velvety. It’s like my lips-but-better with gorgeous thin matte color. This is a beautifully sheer accented and highly conditioned lips. If you are looking for more serious, sophisticated, and mature tinted lip balm, Nobody’s Baby (warm nude) is a good shade to begin. The package is also beautiful, you won’t be disappointed.
Omorovicza Rejuvenating Night Cream (0.5 fl oz/15 ml) | Full size $235
Rodial Pink Diamond Instant Lifting Serum Crystal (0.17) | Full size $135
IcanGWP Review: According to Omorovicza, working with a Hungarian Nobel prize winning laboratory, Omorovicza Cosmetics developed and patented the Healing Concentrate™ to deliver all the potent minerals occurring naturally in the Omorovicza healing waters deep into the epidermis. Complexion appears firmer, suppler and more youthful.
This Omorovicza night cream has provided me one of the softest skins ever when I woke up in the morning. It’s more like my Zen is restored every time I wake up. It’s recommended for dry to combination skin. It’s rich, thick and very creamy but not greasy at all. The sweet aroma is very soothing.
It’s ideally designed for dry skin and packed with heavy duty ingredients including shea butter, Squalane, jojoba seed oil and beeswax. It contains natural extracts, thermal water, beneficial oils, ferments, pro-Vitamin A and a few fruit extracts. This product does not contain petrochemicals, silicones, synthetic colors, or synthetic fragrances. Several reviewers have reported this product as their best night cream. It did not irritate my skin or break me out. The outrageous $235 price tag is quite something. But this is absolutely a great night cream for dry skin during cold winter months. If you are willing to invest and struggle finding a rejuvenating night cream that will strengthen your skin overnight, this sample from Space NK might be your solution.
Patchology Clean AF Cleansing Wipes (15 pack) | Full size $5 – $20
REN Radiance Glow Daily Vitamin Gel Cream (0.51 oz) | Full size $48
IcanGWP Review: According to Patchology, loaded with Vitamin B5 for max moisture, Biotin for a lit-from-within glow, and Folic Acid to detox and purify pores, its your one-step system for a clean slate.
I use this wipe and then face wash as double cleansing. They are very thin, soft, not cushioney and a little elastic. These wipes are gentle on the skin and take all my makeup off quickly including sunscreen. Some waterproof eyeliner and mascara do need extra steps. My eyes are not burning up and it has no scent. The formula has a bunch of skin beneficial ingredients in it. It will wash off but I love that there’s no harsh surfactants. My skin is left cleansed and healthy. I can use one wipe to clean my entire face. Definitely handy after the gym or when you travel.
Verso Hydration Serum with Niacinamide (10 ml) | Full size $95
R + CO Waterfall Moisture + Shine (15 ml) | Full size $29
IcanGWP Review: Have you tried the Nordic formula from Verso? The mild lemonade scent serum has a fluid texture. It glides on effortlessly and absorbs quickly. Niacinamide is the second ingredient which means we get a lot. You either love it or hate it depends how your skin responds to Niacinamide.
Niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B3, helps tremendously to tackle enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, redness from pimples, hyperpigmentation from sun damage and rough surface skin texture. Yes, it is worthy of its reputation as a skincare all rounder.
Niacinamide actively encourages the skin to produce more ceramides (lipids that hold skin cells together). Ceramides decrease when we get older, so it will help retain better moisture which plumps the skin as a result. A niacinamide-infused product is a brilliant way to really boost the overall skin suppleness.
The formula is unique, gentle and contains very few ingredients. They don’t put regular moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, oils, hyaluronic acid or wax. Instead of the traditional formula they generated this gel-like serum with oat and coconut extracts with extra water binding ingredients like hyaluronic acid. It has perfume and silicone but is free of alcohol. The mid-weight formula hydrates the skin well but not the in the traditional ways we’ve found in most products. There are either 5-stars or 2-stars reviews for this product. How we feel the difference is subjective and might not really tell how it works on the skin. If you have one of those skin analyzer devices, that might prove if this unique formula is effective for you.
I like the “bounce” of my skin the most from this serum. What do you think of Verso?
Eve Lom Radiance Transforming Mask (8 ml) | Full size $90
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray (30ml/1oz) | Full size $29
IcanGWP Review: According to Eve Lom: A natural source of AHA extracted from the precious Australian caviar lime, Lime Pearl™, is a gentle yet effective exfoliant that works to remove the buildup of debris and promote natural cell turnover. The result is visibly brighter, smoothed skin. A combination of an antioxidant rich botanical oil and a plant-derived amino acid support suppleness, for skin that looks and feels firmer and plumper. Oxygenation of the skin is improved with nutrient rich, regenerative micro algae extract, and a unique mineral complex protects from free radicals and oxidative stressors.
When massaged into the skin, the mask’s decadent texture warms upon application and transforms into a silk-like cushion. Upon removal, the mask becomes a soothing milky rinse, revealing youthful radiant skin. Skin is left hydrated for up to 6 hours after use when washed off after 30 minutes. When used overnight skin remains hydrated for up to 72 hours.
If you are a high maintenance treat-your-skin person and love the prestigious Eve Lom Cleanser, this is another rich radiance mask to try to complete your ritual. True to its name, it contains moisturizing and exfoliating ingredients that will promote “radiance” as claimed. If you have dry skin or flaky patches, you’ll love this mask. It contains AHAs, Hemp seed oil, micro algae extract, fatty acid, amino acid, magnesium/ zinc /copper complex that should stimulate our stressed cells to be more smooth, brighter, firm, hydrated and fight free radicals as well.
It has a pleasant light botanical scent that is so relaxing. The balm is firm, not creamy like pictures shown everywhere. The full size product comes with a nice spatula. It’s more like a pressed Vaseline in a jar. Fortunately, it transforms into a silky cocoon layer. It left a little sticky and greasy finish on the skin. I’d change my bedlinen to regular cotton if I planned to use it as an overnight mask.
The product turns into a milky liquid when I rinse it off with lukewarm water. There is zero stickiness left. My skin felt moisturized, soft, plumped and thoroughly quenched. Eve Lom is well-known for its incredibly hydrating formula, this product is out of stock at several UK sites. I have combination skin and I enjoyed this mask way more than the famous Eve Lom cleanser (too many steps). I can’t imagine if you have dull stressed dry skin, how wonderful this mask will be on the skin. How do you like Eve Lom products? Do they work great on your dry skin or was it just hype?
Lipstick Queen Altered Universe Time Warp (0.08 fl oz)| Full size $22
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder (0.45oz) | Full size $60
Lipstick Queen Altered Universe Time Warp Review
According to Lipstick Queen: stunning when worn alone and sublime when paired with any Lipstick Queen hue. Each gloss contains crushed pearls that act as travel pigments radiant illuminators designed to capture and reflect light spectacularly. The effect: An incandescent, glowing beauty that lights up the face and pushes the boundaries of prismatic color out of the stratosphere.
Time Warp Shade: This decadently gleaming gloss gives the illusion of candlelight dancing off the lips and adds depth by intermittently morphing between cherry and gold tones, creating an overall iridescent rose-gold champagne tint.
IcanGWP review: Lipstick Queen Altered Universe is a stunning super shiny and iridescent gloss. This gloss adds such a syfy shine and makes my lips look juicy and volumized. It’s not pigmented, not sticky, and has no flavor nor scent. Time warp is pretty alone or as a topper – it layers so well. The duo: rose champagne sparkle and icy lilac metallic are so fine and gorgeous. They pick up the light great. It doesn’t stay long and needs touch up. I like this very hydrating versatile gloss at night, it’s young, sparkly and interesting!
Derm Institute Cellular Rejuvenating Serum (0.17 oz) | Full size $210
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Exfoliating Moisturizer ( 0.13 fl oz) | Full size $68
IcanGWP review: This serum from Derm Institute is packed with so many anti-aging ingredients that are proven to improve overall skin health. Even if I don’t see tons of natural ingredients in it but also no rough ingredients like exfoliants or retinol – it is an alternative option for mature sensitive skin. I really like that it’s an all-in-one serum. It should promote healthier skin and tackle most skin concerns from all peptides, antioxidants, oil, skin conditioning, skin replenishing, vitamins, and others. It can be used day and night.
The product has a moisturizing gel texture with mild citrus scent. Its spreadability is great and I tend to use more than thick regular serum. I do not know the long term improvement yet but I love how it can really plump the skin. It felt like pressing reset on my tired winter skin. The wrinkles might have looked lessened. The amount and numbers of peptides are impressive and maybe… it will be my next peptide-rich serum obsession after Peter Thomas Roth Neuropeptides has been discontinued. I don’t recommend this product to anyone young. It’s pricey and you don’t need this set of anti-aging ingredients yet.
