Alice Temperley & Elemis launch Safari Travellers Collection for Charity!

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

My spontaneity will be the death of me one of these days. A lunchtime browse of Twitter, whilst at work resulted in a frivolous, yet rather fabulous purchase this afternoon.

In case you didn't know, Elemis have teamed up with British designer Alice Temperley to create a stunning animal print travel bag, which is crammed full with Elemis' hero products. The set has been put together to raise £40,000 for Mothers4Children and is available exclusively at John Lewis and Johnlewis.com now until March 27th, then nationwide from May 2011.

My excuses currently range from “Well, it’s for charidee” to “I've been meaning to replace my travel cosmetics bag anyway” to simply denying the transaction has taken place. One minute I was reading about it, the next I'd ordered it! Whoops!

The bag contains:

Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml
Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 30ml
Soothing Apricot Toner 50ml
Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask 15ml
Skin Nourishing Shower Cream 100ml
Papaya Enzyme Peel 15ml
Exotic Frangipani Monoi
Moisture Melt 35ml

The set costs £79 and a men’s version (see below) is available for £50. £1.50 per sale goes to charity. Hmmm I must say I was surprised so little was actually being donated, I hope that can be amended.

I'm hoping I love the bag in reality as much as I do staring at the photos. I've taken note of the stud detail on the handle down to the gold plaque on the front. I'll find out tomorrow when I pick it up from John Lewis after work. If I don't then that's my Mother's Day pressie sorted!! I'll post pics on Thurs (I won't be home 'til late tomorrow night).

If you're new to Elemis, then this is a pretty good way to introduce yourself to the UK's leading skincare brand.
