Selfridges Beauty Workshop Lucky Bag

I am aware I am really late posting this but thought I would share what I got inside Selfridges Lucky Bag from last month! These limited edition lucky bags, only 1000 made, were brought out to celebrate the launch of the new Selfridges Beauty Workshop and sold out almost immediately! A surprise bag costing £15 that contained a lucky mix of beauty products from make up, hair, body or skincare brands. There was a minimum of 5 products per bag, some of which could be travel size and several bags contained pampering experience vouchers or Selfridges Gift Card worth upto £150  - which you are very lucky indeed if you blagged one of these! My lucky bag contained....

REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash (50ml)
James Reed Wash off Tan (30ml)
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (13g)
OCC Lip Tar in Demure 
Nails Inc mini polish (no name) 
Anatomicals snog me senseless mints 
Disco duck lip balm in creme brulee
and....a £25 Selfridges Gift Card!




I know from reading on Twitter many fellow beauty addicts were happy with what they got in their bags, and others weren't so happy - but that's how the lucky 'dip' works! I really like this concept and I hope they bring out more lucky bags in the future. The OCC Lip tars have been on my wishlist for some time and I can tell you they totally live up to the hype - they are super pigmented and have a lovely texture. I adore the shade of the OCC Lip Tar it's perfect and I look forward to trying the James Reed tan. I'm already a huge REN fan so this travel size body wash will come in handy when travelling, mints always come in handy and the disco duck lip balm is cute! Of course I can't wait to go and spend the Selfridges Gift Card when I return to London! The only thing I'm not fussed about is the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant as this is something I already have but over I'm very happy with the contents of my bag!

Did you get one of these lucky bags? What was inside yours?

  3. This is the first positive review of the Lucky Bags that I've read! Your bag does look wicked and I would have been very happy if I'd received it too. You don't mention the Nails Inc polish from the photo. I know a few people received Nails Inc minis in their bags, did you? What shade is it? Have to agree with Sara too, that Lip Tar shade looks fantastic - want!

  5. I wish I was in the UK now so that I could pick one up for myself! I've never bought any lucky bags before but if one's got goodies like this one, I would like to get it!

  7. You got a great bag! Mine was a bit hopeless in comparison. I did get the duck though, hooray!

    I love the microfoliant, its my new cult product, I'd have been totally made up to get it in my bag, haha!

    Enjoy spending the gift card :)

  8. It wasn't so much a lucky dip when some people got things to the value of a few pounds including packet of tissues and nail stickers and you got a £150 selfridges card and lots of nice proper "cult" beauty products.

    Majority of people were either underwhelmed or really unhappy with their bags everyone else by the looks of it got absolute crud you could get in a bargain bin at Superdrug. I'm really angry with Selfridges for ripping us off like this.

    I pay £15 I expect to get AT LEAST £15 worth of goods. It was badly promoted, badly executed and was their way of getting rid of a ton of crap that wasn't selling but also throwing in some nice bits and pieces for a select few.

    Lucky you - I for one, will be boycotting Selfridges in future and will be more cautious at being led into hype over something that I have no control over and it looks like they've sent their best bag to a blogger to review pre release in order to make people think the bag is of any value - when in fact it is practically worthless.

  9. Anonymous - Sorry you weren't happy with your bag. I totally agree you should have got £15 worth of products minimum, especially if some of the products were sample size. Just to add the selfridges card I got was £25 not £150 - I wish! x
