Do you like your products with a purpose? The Sparrow Society is a South African non-profit company that aims to create an equal community via job creation initiatives and partnerships with skills development organisation. To learn more about them you can pop on over here.
One of Sparrow Society’s recent partnerships is with Elizabeth Arden that’s seen them create the most gorgeous screen printed make-up bags that are almost 100-percent proudly South African with the exception of the zip that comes from Swaziland. While you can buy one of their bags from their online store, you can also get one for free via Arden’s latest lovely gift with purchase promotion. Simply buy any two Arden products, one of which must be a moisturiser, serum or foundation, and you’ll walk with a beautiful Sparrow Society bag filled with three of Arden’s best sellers.
So, what’s in the bag? First up, you’re looking at a full-size Eight Hour Cream which I know needs no introduction. Then you’ve got a Grand Entrance mascara – fabulous if you’re keen to create a wide-awake, feathery-looking lash line – and a 15ml Always Red EDT. You can read my review of warm and sweet-smelling Always Red over here. If you like Armani’s Si, you’re going to be a fan.
But ja! We all love it when brands whip out great gift with purchases, but major props to Arden for whipping up something that’s linked to a proudly South African product that really makes a difference.
