What's in my Handbag?

What's in my handbag is a website where you can register to be selected to receive free samples.  Every week they put up a new "try" if you would like to receive the sample you register your interest then if you are chosen you end up with a surprise through your letterbox!

If you would like to register please feel free to use my referral link

I have been lucky to receive a couple of items of the past few weeks, a perfume sample and a face mask.
The personalised label is a lovely touch!
I received an Oskia Renaissance Mask.

The mask has worn quite a few awards Best Anti-Ageing Mask - Celebs on Sunday Beauty Awards 2011; Best New Product - UK Beauty Awards 2011, Best Mask - Red Magazine; Top Beauty Find of 2010 - The Beauty Shortlist

The mask is designed to increase cell turnover and is packed with beauty-boosting nutrients.  It is an exfoliating mask which leaves the complexion smooth, refined and illuminated.
This is a very generous 15ml sample and the full size of 50ml retails for £48.50 on their website making the sample worth £14.55! I can't wait to try it out.
The other sample I received came in an envelope.
It is a sample of Bond No.9 Central Park West

Top notes: narcissus, ylang ylang and black pepper
Middle notes: gardenia, jasmine, citrus-like lindena and orris
Bottom: vetiver, musk, white oak and treemoss

The full size of 100ml retails for a whopping £350 in Harrods, making this 1.7ml sample worth £5.95. It smells really nice but I could never justify spending £350 on a perfume!!

Have you signed up to What's in my Handbag yet? What samples have you received?
