Cosmo Careers Masterclass Goodie Bag Haul

I'd like to start this post by thanking everybody that has contacted me to tell me that they've purchased the Superdrug Coconut Oil from my last blog - I'm glad you all think it's as wonderful as I do!

This is just gonna be a quick post to show you all the uhhhhmazing goodie bag I received from the Cosmo Careers Masterclass that I attended in London this week. The Masterclass, which was hosted by Cosmopolitan magazine, was an opportunity to meet and hear speeches from some media experts and get tips on how to kickstart my own career (I'm hoping to go into public relations this summer). It was an insightful evening, made better still by this bag of joy that I received upon entering the Masterclass.

Mascara - Tanning Mitt - Little White Lie Tanning Mousse - NYC Expert Last Lipstick
Not bad, eh? I was over the moon when I spotted Benefit's They're Real! Mascara, which I have wanted for absolutely ages but couldn't justify the £20 price tag. I'm also really excited to try out the Lash Fibres Brush on False Lashes, as I've been longing after a fibre-based mascara for a while but again, there were more urgent things to spend my non-existent money on.

The other products that I'm particularly excited to try are the Litte White Lie tanning mousse, which contains argan oil so should be lush (and for the £18 RRP so it should be), and the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, simply because I've never used an oil-based cleanser before.

In terms of potential beauty bargains, I'll be letting you know how I get on with the NYC lipstick, and the Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White toothpaste which promises to be a cheaper alternative to teeth whitening (we'll see). I've also heard good things about the Kleenex Shine Absorbing sheets, a much cheapter alternative to MAC's Blot Film. I'll also aim to post comparisons between some of the high-end products I received in the goodie bag and budget alternatives, so watch this space!

I'll leave you with one little gem of advice from Jazz Kaur, head of PR for Benefit (what a DREAM job that must be), who was one of the speakers at the Masterclass: If you love something, then you'll do it.


  1. I'll be honest - i read your last one about coconut oil, but havn't gone for it as i'm a religious user of palmers cocoa butter. I have the bottle you have, but much prefer the original tub of solid formula, which is as the coconut oil is - solid at room temperature. I just love it, and super cheap too! Id be interested to know what you think of the 2 in direct comparison...

  2. Believe it or not, getting this tub of palmers is the first time I've ever actually owned my own bottle! My dad uses it on a scar so there's usually some in the house, and recently I've been using a cheapo cocoa butter i found in the chemists for a quid. Definitely prefer the palmers by a mile though. My dad actually has the solid formula at the moment so I will definitely try it when I get back from uni! Direct comparison is a good idea xx
