No7 Mystery Prize Gift Bag
I was very lucky recently to receive this No7 gift bag. My father won this as a raffle prize at his local store but it was designed to be won by a woman, I was a very lucky daughter to get given it, and I was told it was filled with all kinds of mystery goodies from Boots.
When I opened the tape on the beautiful purple bag and looked inside, I saw a selection of items inside including samples, No7 items and what looked like some full sized products too. I decided to photograph all of the items together before testing or using any of them, so the next image depicts a flat lay of the things inside the prize. This is the reveal of what was contained in this prize.
Item 1. Estee Lauder – New Dimension Serum Sample
Item 2. No7 Dramatic Lift Mascara – Handbag Size
Item 3. Lancome – La Vie Est Belle – Perfume Sample
Item 4. Benefit – It’s Potent – Brightening Eye Cream Sample
Item 5. Paco Rabanne – Olympea – Perfume Sample
Item 6. No7 Stay Perfect – Duo Nail Colour in Pink and Gold (2x4ml)
Item 7. Ted Baker – Body Lotion (50ml)
Item 8. No7 Single Eye Shadow – Handbag Size
Item 9. Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask (100g)
Item 10. Clarins – Anti Pollution – Cleansing Cream (5ml)
Item 11. Elizabeth Arden – Original Cream – Eight Hour Cream – Sample
I’m looking forward to trying these products and the samples, if I’m impressed with anything I will probably write a blog post about that specific item. Although most of what was included seem to have one time uses unfortunately.
Review of this Prize
I found it rather interesting how many samples were included in this winners bag. I of course expected there to have been more handbag sized products than full sized, however for a prize, it should be worth the ticket price at least.
A lot of places still give you samples if you ask for them, so you could potentially remove 5 or 6 of the prizes in this bag, which only leaves you with 6 or 5 products, some which are still not full sized anyway. The question is if the prize is worth the prize money, because it felt like a lot was included until you look at it all.
In my eyes if companies are going to provide prizes which have samples inside, they need to put a lot more in the bag than just a few and especially if they are only at 5ml or less.
A lot of what has been won here will be single use items. If I had arranged such a prize, I think it would’ve been more worthwhile to supply 5 full sized items and handbag friendly products, than to put two or three proper sized pieces
in a bag filled with samples to make it seem as though the recipient was getting a lot more. It is needless to say a little disappointing and a bit misleading (considering the size of the bag too!)
Saying this I am not ungrateful in any way, because I still have the opportunity to try some products I wouldn’t have purchased full sized versions of.
I hope you have found this reveal interesting, and I will update with future posts if any products stand out to me enough to have their own review.
