Everyone seems obsessed with launching beauty kits/bundles these days, don’t they? Liberty, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges… I do not particularly mind, however it seems that this is becoming a new trend. You cannot argue that there haven’t been more such bundles in recent months than ever before!
Today I want to talk about not one, but two new bundles from Selfridges. You can find out more below. Shall we?

What do you think of these two bundles? I think they are pretty cute, even though I am a bit concerned in general about the motivation behind creating such kits.
The makeup bundle is one I am a bit skeptical about despite the amazing product it contains. I really do not think people purchased that much makeup lately (for the past year or so) and I am sure the store had plenty stock to get rid of… The good thing is that there is always the possibility for returns. On the other hand, I am sure that the kit is welcomed especially with lockdown restrictions easing in the near future.
In terms of products, I am happy to see that the Makeup Bundle does not contain any tinted lip products. Those would be truly unnecessary. The one lip product included from Summer Fridays is more than welcomed as the weather is still a bit on the cold side, plus I found that wearing a mask can lead to incredibly dry lips. The best part is that the product is relatively a new launch!
I cannot really moment on the rest of the products as I have not used them, well with the exception of the eyelash curler. The Eyelash Curler from Kevyn Aucoin is a cult product that everyone should own. It is truly amazing and works interestingly enough better than most random eye lash curlers you can find on the market. Yeah, I was skeptical as well, but I have been using it for 3-4 years now and I really like it.
As for the Skin Saviours kit, I do not have much to say in this case. The kit is pretty nice and the products are nothing to frown upon either.
With spring/summer upon us, the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist is absolutely perfect. It definitely saved my skin one summer. In 2018 I decided to stay all summer in London and it turned out to be a hot summer. For some reason, most apartment buildings (even newer ones) do not have air conditioning outside of shared areas… It was probably the worst summer of my life as I was writing my master thesis and I felt sick the entire summer because of the heat. To make matters worse, my skin was acting weirder than usual, but a few spritz of the mist helped, with the skin part at least. It did provide a short lived relief overall though, but of course it did not help with the underlying causes (just so that no one misunderstands).
I haven’t used all product, but I have tried the Dermalogica Microfoliant way too many times in the past. The product is good and highly effective. I have not say that it is not my favourite from the range, but it is good nonetheless if you can look past the scent. The other product I tried is the Pixi Toner which is a good one, but definitely nothing special. However, if you have sensitive skin, you might appreciate it more.
Overall, I do think both of these kits are worth a second look. If you do end up shopping at Srlridges and particularly if you live in the EU or the rest of the world, then I recommend having a look at Selfridges+. I also shared my experience with the program here. The program is worth every penny and makes the shopping experience significantly more pleasant. Even if you live in the UK and need next day delivery or you at least wound not mind next day delivery, then you should check out the program.
