Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

haha! nice!

 

When I do that my order gets cancelled. Boooooooo

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

i ordered the Consenant organic hand hand cream and some formula x nail polish, i always thought we couldn't redeem any point perks without a $25 (CDN for me) purchase.

 

my hands are disgustingly dry so im really excited to get the hand cream. i purchased it for my brother for christmas and he seems to like it. his hands were all cracked and dry so i have high hopes!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@EmmyLove If the Consonant doesn't end up being enough for you, my HG hand cream is Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve. I haven't found a better hand cream in the 15 years since I started using it Smiley Very Happy 

 

My brother uses it as well; he's a rock climber and says it's well known in the community because of how well it heals dry and cracked hands after a climb! 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

  1. @Llgc thank you for the recommendation!! my hands are not in good shape so its good to have a backup, it sounds amazing. i might have to pass that onto my brother as well, the factory he works in does a number on his hands!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank you for commenting on the smell! I thought I was crazy!  (Still a possibility)

 

When I smelled the BB it was like.. cilantro.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Wow!  I can't wait until mine arrives- super curious as to how it will smell!

Omg love the hair do! We need to take up a collection to buy some hair products to tame his mane! Haha

@Insomniacmuffin,

I love the smell of cilantro (the real thing!)  Smiley Wink

I own BB Sandwash Pink, and I love the color and the lipstick formula.  I don't remember noticing the scent at all when I put it on.  Smiley Happy

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@tsavorite Mmm I'm with you there, I love cilantro...

 

I feel like most of my friends have this opinion on cilantro though:

I loveeeeeeee cilantro!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

The dislike of cilantro can be linked to genetics. To something like 15% of the population - cilantro tastes like bitter or soap. 

 

Similar in how some people can eat asparagus without issue, whereas others have a smelly bathroom issue later. Some people have the ability to digest the mercaptan found in asparagus, hence the smell, whereas other people cannot - and pass it odorlessly. 

 

Science is fun!

@Insomniacmuffin *raises hand* I'm one of those cilantro people. Dislike for onions also runs in my family (probably a social trait rather than a genetic one though!), so I don't eat pico de gallo or certain sauces with my Mexican food.

@Insomniacmuffin fun/disgusting asparagus story...

 

A couple years ago my coworkers and I (scientific work environment) got into a, lets call it, heated discussion on the topic. There was disagreement on whether it was the production of the odour or ability to smell it, and we found conflicting scientific reports.

 

Needless to say a few days later we had a potluck of cooked asparagus and had a little test of our own.

 

My non-science friends think a lot of the stories from the science folks' work is weird. We think we're normal. Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Llgc love the science test story. and seriously, your profile pic is CLASSIC next to your comment to @Insomniacmuffin. I think the little guy is grossed out! HAHA

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Llgc that is a very cool perspective I had not thought of (olfactory) !!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Really excited to get mine now!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thanks for posting! I was curious about the Bobbi Brown, deciding if I should make an order to get it.

Girls , can you return point perks in the store? I recently order online and redeemed 850 of my points (the new rewards have tempted me) but i have a changed of heart and only want the bobbi brown ( not sure if this color will be good to tan skin tone , anybody have tried/swatched?) question is anybody have done this recently?

I've heard of others doing it but when I tried to return a 100 point perk in store they wouldn't let me.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

some new 100 rewards include beautyblender cleanser and clinique creaa!

I think the solid cleanser is one of the best 100 point deals ever. It lasts a long time and works great.
