I just love a deal and I love ordering online, so I was pretty excited to learn about Scarlet & Julia, an online beauty shop with a range of brands, expert advice and exclusive deals. I was sent the most adorable lipstick USB filled with information about Scarlet & Julia, as well as a giftcard so that I could test out the service for myself.
I was honestly a little overwhelmed by how many exciting products were available on Scarlet & Julia, and at first I didn’t know what to pick. In addition to the regular La Boutique, Scarlet & Julia has a weekly, limited edition Beauty Outlet where you can get amazing deals on prestige brands like Burberry, Marc Jacobs and Cargo.
Plus, not only is there free delivery and free samples on orders over $75, but 1% of sales are donated to Look Good Feel Better, an organization that supports women battling cancer. Then there’s the loyalty program, which gives you 5% back in Scarlet & Julia credits you can use next time you order!
As I said, there are lots of great products available on Scarlet & Julia, but I finally narrowed down my pick to the Vera Wang Princess Gift Set*. This set originally retails for $82 Canadian, but it’s on sale right now for only $49. That’s an amazing deal because this set includes a 50 mL bottle of Vera Wang Princess. In terms of the shipping process, Scarlet & Julia shipped out using Expedited Parcel from Montreal two days after ordering, and it included tracking. The parcel was really well packaging, and everything arrived looking perfect a few days later!
I first tried Vera Wang Princess because it’s actually my twin sister’s signature scent. I didn’t want to copy her, so Vera Wang Lovestruck was the first high end fragrance I purchased and it’s still one of my favourite scents. But I never forgot how amazing Vera Wang Princess smelled, so when I had a chance to pick up this amazing Gift Set I went for it. I’m kinda in love with it, but I might be a good sister and share–or better yet, order a second one for her!
The Vera Wang Princess Gift Set includes a Creamy Body Lotion (75 mL) which has a really nice consistency and the same great scent, as well as Foamy Body Polish (75 mL) which is a creamy consistency with small exfoliating pieces that lathers really well. To layer on top, there’s both the Vera Wang Princess Eau de Parfum Spray (50 mL) as well as a Rollerball (10 mL) that’s perfect for your purse or travel. I will say that I don’t need to reapply Vera Wang Princess throughout the day–this is a scent that lasts!
Vera Wang Princess comes in a gorgeous bottle with a cap that removes to reveal a ring (similar to Vera Wang Princess Power) and a lilac liquid inside. It has an amazing creamy, sweet and slightly floral scent that starts off with fresh aquatic notes of water lily, apple, mandarin and apricot. The heart of the scent includes sweetness from guava, tiare flower, tuberose and dark chocolate. Finally, it rests on a base of vanilla, amber and wood. To me, the strongest notes are really the creamy vanilla, with a hint of rich chocolate and a sweetness from the guava. This is not an overpowering scent, I find it very easy to wear and really love it.
I think the Vera Wang Princess Gift Set from Scarlet & Julia would make an amazing gift. I really love the products inside, and the set itself is a great value. If you’re not looking for fragrance, I definitely still recommend checking out Scarlet & Julia, as they have plenty of other great products (I had my eye on a Stila palette!) that are perfect for the beauty lover in your life–especially if that person is you!
