Every year I can not wait for the Elizabeth Arden & Sparrow Society collaboration. Their bags are honestly out of this world, crazy amazing. I have every bag since they started their collaboration in 2017 (I eventually gave the first year’s one to my sister). Keep scrolling to see which products is in this year’s Elizabeth Arden Gift With Purchase 2020 bag and how you can pick one up for yourself.
Sparrow Society was founded by Kate Senekal. It is a non-profit organisation which connects and empowers women in the townships of Gugulethu, Masiphumelele and Philippi through their craftsmanship, design and creative skills. Kate gave up her profession as a photographer to follow her passion of empowering disadvantaged communities. These women inspired her through their talents, but despite still not reaching their full potential. She created a platform to guide and train these women and together they have grown Sparrow Society into a proudly local brand
Elizabeth Arden Gift with Purchase 2020
Retinol Ceramide Capsules.
Inside you get enough capsules to last you about a week. These capsules are a serum based treatment targeted at diminishing wrinkles and fine lines while improving skin texture and tone. A lovely step in your evening skincare routine to ensure a more youthful appearance.
Ceranide Lift & Firm Day Cream
If I can remember correctly this use to come in a tiny tub in previous years. It sinks into the skin instantly and have got SPF 30. This moisturiser has got a plumping effect that makes your skin look firmer. The sample size is a decent amount and I am sure you will fall in love instantly.
Superstart Skin Renewal Booster
I have featured this product in so many empties as I keep on repurchasing it over and over again and again. This serum helps the rest of your skincare items sink in and perfume better. It boosts your natural defences and ability to renew. This right here is my favourite skin care product!
Superstart Probiotic Cleanser
Think whipped mousse but also clay. One of the most interesting cleansers I have ever used. You apply it with dry hands and fingertips and the mousse turn into a clay mask that dries after a minute or two. This doubles as a slightly exfoliating cleanser. I am in love and already repurchased this cleanser a couple of times.
Grand Entrance Maskara
This is one to write home about. The curve in the wand makes it easy to coat all your lashes and then comes the lift. I found that my lashes looks separated and almost like a used a eyelash curler. It truly is a fantastic mascara and worth all the hype it has received.

Some suggestions :
The Daily Defense moisturiser is the newest edition to the 8 Hour range and you can read my thoughts here. Its a beautiful light weight but potent moisturiser. Eight Hour All over Miracle oil is one that can be used in so many ways. On the skin, the face or even the hair. Come read all about it in this post. And the other product I have repurchased at least half a dozen times and always have a backup – 8 Hour Sun Defense for the face. It plays well with makeup and does not leave that white cast that some SPF’s sometimes does.
The Flawless Finish Foundation has always been part of my collection since I was a teenager. Different packaging way back then, the formula has changed over the years but it is still a favourite and will always will be.
Little firecrackers these ones! A rich and moisturising oil to hydrate and nourish the area under and around your eyes. You can also use these in the morning if the skin under your eye is extremely dry, but you will have to wait long enough for it to sink in before applying the rest of your makeup.
The Retinol and Vitamin C capsules are both amazing!!!!! If you come and visit the blog again in February I will tell you all about these two ladies.
