Today I had every intention of heading to my meeting in London and then heading home to work from the comfort of my sofa. All this changed however when I received a text telling me my Selfridges Lucky Bag had been delivered to the office. It would be sacrilege to leave my lucky bag waiting in the office all weekend, so I took a detour to grab it on my way home.
With the treasured box in my mitts I eagerly tore open the box, remembering to take some dodgy iPhone snaps on my way. However once my bag was opened the excitement ended.
Inside my bag I found the following….
Perhaps I had inflated expectations, but when the likes of Selfridges offers a Lucky Bag I don’t expect to find tissues as one of the gifts, though I’m sure they are very nice tissues. Also of the 6 items in my bag only 3 are actually stocked on the Selfridges website, the rest produced this wonderful message when trying to suss out their value.
Thankfully Google was able to help with the missing prices. So what was my Lucky Bag worth? A grand total of £17.93, I’ve broken down the exact product prices below. Sure I got more than the £15.00 I paid, if you don’t include the £4.95 postage, but would I really use many of the products? Probably not.
NPW Nail Art Correction Pen (full size) – £3.95
Anatomicals “I’ve had the Thyme of my life” Body Cleanser (full size) – £3.50
St Tropez Everday Body Moisturiser Medium/Dark (50ml) – £3.63*
Nails Inc Nail Polish in Porchester Square (4ml) – £4.40*
Beauty Junky Strawberry Fragrance Face Mask (full size) – £1.50
*All sample size costs have been worked out based on the cost of the full price items.
I don’t mean to be a grump about these things, but seriously when you’re buying a Lucky Bag from Selfridges you expect the items to be from Selfridges, right?
Did you order one of the Selfridges Lucky Bags? Would love to know what you got in yours if you did.
