  10. Robyn says:

    Fab idea! Although knowing me I’d open it all at once and then be annoyed that there isn’t any chocolate.

  11. kirsten russell says:

    I’m gutted! Just saw it mentioned in Stylist Magazine. Call to buy and they have sold out :(

  12. Bili says:

    @ Lucy, Kaja, Kirsty, etc, I was also gutted to see they had run out, but then I tried one from Latest in Beauty, and it was pretty amazeballs! Got a bit of everything

    Plus it’s packaged SO nicely, i was pretty excited when I got it, so got one as a Xmas pressie for my mum.

    Try n get it before they run out too! As everyone seems to be running out of stock! lol
