Yesterday I did a post on the Harry Potter Chest Gift Set, and today it’s the turn of the more evil side of the franchise with the Deathly Hallows Tin Gift Set. There’s a lot of products in this that are the same, or rather equivalent to, the ones in the other gift set. Originally this tin was £20 so in the sales at the moment it’s £10 and has a range of bath and body products in it.

The tin itself is a nice quality and has a dark design for Harry Potter fans, while inside there’s two sheet masks, a bath bomb, eye mask, makeup bag, nail varnishes and a sheet of nail art stickers with a Deathly Hallows theme.

Review: Harry Potter Trunk Gift Set

Anyone who knows me knows I love Harry Potter, I’m sat here in a jumper with a giant Harry face on at the moment, so when I saw the two gift sets in Boots in the half price offer I had to get them. I’ll do a review of the Deathly Hallows tin tomorrow so check back for that if you’re interested. There are some similar products in it, there’s only a few products that are completely different in them. I’ve been to Boots near me recently and these were both still in stock, they seemed to have quite a few of them.

The Harry Potter Trunk Gift Set has a range of products in it, some of them were available separately (and still could be in the sale) and others were part of a set, I’m not sure any of these products are available exclusively in this set, except the box itself. There’s bath essences, hand cream, sheet masks, a bath bomb, makeup bag and an eye mask so it’s all definitely bath and body related and could make a great few evenings of Harry Potter themed pampering.

Review: Korean Beauty Secret Key Gold Racoony Hydro Gel Eye and Spot Patches

korean-beauty-secret-key-gold-racoony-eye-patches-1

A while ago I bought some Secret Key Gold Racoony Hydro Gel Eye and Spot Patches from eBay as I’ve liked under eye gel patches before but they’re so expensive here in the UK. These are a Korean brand and in general cost around £7 – £10 depending on where you get them from. I got them from the f2plus1 eBay store (the eBay store for Beauty Net Korea) and at the moment they’re listed for £8.55.

These eye patches contain gold and claim to be good for refreshing your skin as well as hydrating it and improving elasticity. A lot of these patches with gold in claim to be anti wrinkle and with the amount you get in each tub they’re actually quite a cheap way of treating this if they actually work. Each pot contains 60 of the eye patches, the semi circular shaped pieces, and 30 of the spot patches. You can use them daily if you want and then they’d last a month, but I don’t think they’re something that would be part of my daily routine so a couple of times a week makes them last three or four months.
