During December, Boots UK ran a 12 days of Christmas campaign on their Instagram page. As part of this, one of the prizes was the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect makeup collection. On a bit of a whim, and with no expectations, I liked the post and commented that I would love to win this for my Mum. She cares so much for others that she often forgets to take care of herself, and I thought this would be a lovely extra Christmas present for her.
Around a week or so later, I got a notification from Boots that I had in fact won the prize! I was so shocked as I’ve never really won anything online like this before, and I was so happy knowing that my Mum was going to be super spoilt! I sent Boots my details and eagerly anticipated my parcel.
I was totally not expecting what arrived. From the Instagram image, it was hard to judge the scale of what I had actually won. I came home from work to a box at least 2 feet high, which weighed a tonne! I knew instantly what it was and I was stunned. As I unwrapped the collection, I was like a child in a sweet shop. The box was HUGE. I had never expected to win something so big, for what I thought was very little effort on my part!
There was a hand-written note from the L’Oréal Paris team, which was so nice and added a real personal touch. I began to open and explore the collection and I was simply amazed at the volume of what I had received. Every shade of lipstick, every shade of foundation, two mascaras, eyebrow pencils… The lot. I was in awe.
I have tried a few of the products so far and did consider writing a review post as they’re really great, but that wouldn’t sum up how thankful I am to Boots and to L’Oréal for gifting me such an amazing prize. As you can tell, it really outdid any expectations I had and I feel really touched to have won, so thank you!
