March Surprise [I don't really miss the haul :D]

You would have never imagined a gift like this.. okay at least not me ! My school friend [bestie] came down from the US after 2 years and before she left the country she kept asking me if I need anything from there. I was too confused to pick anything. I just sent her a small list at the last minute and almost all products had a minimum of 1 week shipping time and she was about to leave before that. Cursing myself I told 'Might be next time :( ' . Once she reached India she called me to say that she got a gift for me that I would love. I had no idea then that she would exactly know what I wanted !!!!!

Best Gift Ever !


It is the limited edition Beauty Oil Essentials kit by Sephora !!! I was literally jumping with joy when she sent me the link. I couldn't wait to hold it in my hands. Nobody would have seen that kind of excitement on my face ever ! 

Calming down myself let me tell you a little about the kit, if you haven't heard about such kits before. Sephora U.S, once in a while comes up with such LE kits - Perfume sampler kit, Beauty Oil Kit and so on. I was dying to try some beauty oils and how my friend guessed that I would love this, has a clever little story behind.

Remember I told you I sent a small list of products to her? It had the Josie Maran Light Argan Oil and she instantly guessed that I would like the entire Beauty Oil set. This might sound like a drama but trust me she was about to leave to the airport by 5 in the evening and the kit reached her by 4 !! It was so sweet of her to let some little space in her luggage for this and packed it at the last minute. 

Best Gift Ever !

Sush, I love you looooooooooooooads. Not just because of what you got for me but for all the efforts and pain you took to get this gift for me. Thank you so so so so so much.

Now coming to the kit, it has 12 products - few sample sized and few full sized too ! The oils have been segregated into 4 categories - Cleansing, Face, Body and Hair. You can see them in the box and I shall list the same too.

They don't make too many of these kits so I was one of the lucky girls to get one :D The original value being $162,  Sephora gives it for just $56 !

Best Gift Ever !

Don't you think the deal is just mind blowing. I love the fact that Sephora included a mix of facial oil along with hair oil, cleansing oil and body oil too because say, if the kit had all 12 facial oils 

1.My skin would suffer for sure.
2.Products might expire before I actually try all of them !

I am planning to start with just 1 facial oil and 1 body oil for now and shall review all of them one by one :)

I don't really miss my monthly haul at all !!

A lil secret only for you girls - I am hugging this box and sleeping when hubby is not in town ;)
