Elizabeth Arden GWP

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I just received a little card from Sears about the upcoming GWP with Elizabeth Arden. I tried to find a better image on the net but there's nothing, probably until Sears announces it online.

Basically, with any CAD38 purchase, you'll get an 8-piece gift valued CAD81 which includes a Zebra print tote, your choice of either the new Ceramide Plump Perfect Ultra Lift and Firm moisture cream SPF30 or Prevage Anti-aging formula. That's all the card said, based on the picture, there'll be a lipstick, a small sized Pretty perfume, 2-in-1 cleanser, Ceramide capsules and mineral makeup (either foundation or blush). Are you a fan of Elizabeth Arden?

Talking about the brand, I might as well tell you what I am/was using from Elizabeth Arden. I have their Intervene line for almost a year now. Among the 3 products I got, I liked (and still do) the 3-in-1 Daily Cleanser/Exfoliator/Primer (retails for CAD32) the most. It is gentle enough to use everyday but still gives me the feeling of my skin being exfoliated. My skin feels good after each use. Sometimes I switch around to a stronger exfoliator or a soft cream cleanser, just to give the skin a different treatment when needed, but I find myself coming back to it afterward.

The Pause & Effect moisture cream SPF15 is a good moisturizer, not heavy or greasy. I just didn't notice any big change in my skin after using it for a while, considering it was not a cheap item (CAD68). They came out with a Radiance Boosting Moisture Cream to replace it now, as I don't see it on the site anymore. After finishing the jar, I switched to Olay Regenerist Enhancing Lotion SPF 15.

The Pause & Effect moisture eye cream (CAD49) is also replaced by Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream. I haven't used the new product, so I can't say, but the old one works quite well. It stops fine lines around my eyes, makes me feel young again. I'm on the second jar now.

I certainly like GWPs, as a little extra confetti in the makeup party :-) But I probably won't shop this time, as I still have a few products to finish off. I like the idea of the zebra print and the perfume though (don't think I've seen fragrance in their GWP).

Have a nice day, everyone.


  1. Hiya! Thank you for following my blog. :) Yep, unfortunately Island Girl products are exclusive to ABC Stores. But now you know you don't have to go to Hawaii for it...just Vegas!

  2. I'm not usually a fan of animal prints, but that one is cute!

    though I have seen it, I had never owned one for myself, and figured for the price, well...SCORE! lol. Bought a few non-acetone ones, and one concentrated acetone for fake nail removal...when and if I buy and wear them! lol

    i'll put up a post on the polish this weekend, need to take pics :P

  3. I just saw the display in store, the freebies are quite tiny, lol. A little disappointed.

    Thanks for the comments, guys
