Dior Beauty VIP

Love the idea of high end beauty freebies?
Then you NEED to get yourself on the Dior VIP beauty mailing list!

Every time you purchase something at your local Dior counter make sure they fill out a VIP form for you.

Sometimes I haven't even made a purchase and I'm just there picking up some new samples and or checking out the new collection. I still ask the staff to fill in a form for me and have never been refused.

Being a VIP means I receive invitations through the post several times a year to go to my local counter and be given freebies. These can be anything from a sample of a new product to full on gift sets! The more times you have purchased from a counter (and so had a VIP form filled in) the higher value gifts you receive – it's that simple!

You also get invitations to special Dior events held in local department stores, invitations to have free makeovers and sometimes miniatures and samples are sent direct in the post.

Today for example I popped in to replace my trusty Diorskin Nude Air Powder (in 030 if you were wondering) and left with the bundle of goodies you can see in the pictures below. I've also included the Miss Dior Soap gift set that I received about 2 months ago as I forgot to share it at the time.

Lastly, don't forget to ask for it all to be gift wrapped. This costs nothing, the boxes are stunning, they change designs seasonally and are the perfect dressing table/bedroom storage solution for little bits and bobs. Just look how pretty today's box is!

Product Review: Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Nose Pore Strips With Activated Charcoal

Okay, so these bad boys are awesomely gross and satisfying and just 100% my guilty pleasure! I’ve always been a fan of the nose and facial strips but have wanted to try the charcoal ones for a while as apparently they draw out way more gunk and nastiness.

These come with 2-steps, which I’ve never seen before. The first strip you put on a clean wet nose and leave for about 15 minutes or until rock hard. They you rip it off and get to admire all the crap that just came out of your face!

Then you rinse off any leftover residue, dry your nose and put on the second strip, which is saturated and has an immediate cooling and tightening effect to close your pores but also moisturise.

Pretty impressive for the price. Needs to be used regularly for maximum impact I would say.

£5.99 from Boots
