Honestly, I say this a lot but there are two things I really love. One, Elizabeth Arden (I find it hard to find something of theirs I’m not crazy about). And two – mini’s. I’m a sucker for anything mini or compact and literally have a jar of all my travel sized / mini products. I just love them. If you’re like me, Elizabeth Arden is running their “Gift with Purchase” collaboration with Sparrow Society again this year, and it’s totally fabulous.
The Sparrow Society X Elizabeth Arden Gift with Purchase started in 2017 and this year it’s back! By purchasing two Elizabeth Arden products (one being a serum, foundation or moisturiser) you quality for the free Gift With Purchase. The Gift with Purchase is a stunning cosmetic bag (This year’s design was inspired by the intricate designs in traditional African basket weaving) and, wait for it – SEVEN SAMPLES!
What is Sparrow Society aiming to do?
It’s all about upliftment and empowerment. According to Kate Senekal it’s purpose is reviving jobs and empowerment of seamstresses.
“The continued manufacture of the Elizabeth Arden bags by the Sparrow Society team in South Africa has served to sustain local manufacturing and revive lost factory jobs due to increased imports flooding the local market. Within the sustainable job creation
program, Sparrow Society was also able to further empower their seamstresses with a
Creative Business Course to equip them to start their own small businesses.”
What are some of the samples?
Some of the AMAZING things you have to look forward to in your GWP include:
- Fifth Avenue perfume samples (It’s my favorite Elizabeth Arden scent)
- A travel sized Eight Hour Cream (it’s 15g – perfect for your handbag!) – You can read why I love the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream here.
- A tube of the iconic Ceramide Capsules Restoring Serum (can’t wait to tuck into mine!)
- A 15ml Ceramide Lift and Firm Day Cream SPF30 (Once again, totally fabulous for travelling!)
- A 5ml Superstart Skin Renewal Booster
- A huge 50ml Superstart Probiotic Cleanser Whip to Clay (it’s hardly a sample/travel size it’s so big!)
- A Standing Ovation Mascara sample sized (Really nice to keep with you for emergencies)
