Urban Retreat Beautique: Ultimate Gift With Purchase

Spend £150 online at Urban Retreat Beautique and receive this ultimate Gift With Purchase worth £110 including 11 luxury brands. The offer has started online since yesterday and with so many luxe brands to choose from, you'll only be spoilt for choice.

A perfect way to double up on Christmas presents as you'll receive all the products shown above in addition to your purchase which means your festive shopping for the ladies in the family and social circuit is sorted when it comes beauty! A lovely way to get a little something for yourself when shopping for others. I'd sneakily keep a few things for myself and distribute the rest as stocking fillers or personalised beauty boxes. It might seem extravagant but I've always done that in the past depending on people's make-up and skincare likings.

With Diptique, Creme De La Mer, La Prairie, Sisley, Nars and a tonne more to wander amidst, it's actually pretty quick to fill up your basket with £150 worth of goodies. They also have the entire Guy Bourdin by NARS collection to ogle at.

The GWP above is seriously the best I've ever come across. Pretty much in line with SpaceNK but a tad bit better I suppose? I absolutely loved coming across some new niche brands that I wouldn't have stumbled upon before. The travel sized hair oil and hair conditioning spray by Pureology and Unite as to die for. They instantly make hair feel velvety soft and moisture quenched. The Unite one stays in my bag now!

Then there are two face masks by Valmont and Omorovicza which are gorgeous. I love the tiny glass jars they come housed in, uber cute and perfect to take around with you when globe trotting. One's a regenerating mask and one's a deep cleansing one and the formulas are ingenious. My skin loved them after a stressful day at work.

Obviously, there's got to be your obligatory NARS and Laura Mercier goodies thrown in. You'll be shocked to know this is my first time trying our Laura Mercier's cult favourite product and so far, I'm liking it. The dinky NARS lipgloss I would throw into a teenage niece's stocking filler as I'm sure they'd appreciate the glitter and sparkle.

There's also the rare cellulite melting and body detoxifying products which I haven't tried yet but I'm super intrigued, especially by the body wrap mask application of which should be followed by a tight cling film wrap. Mummified my cellulite prone thighs will be this weekend!

I couldn't fault a single product here and these might lead to full sized purchases for sure. A browse at www.urbanretreat.co.uk is HIGHLY recommended this weekend.
