Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

[ Edited ]

Hey gift bag haulers-I know you are out there! If you are like me and feel compelled to purchase every department store and boutique gift bag event, this is the place to share your info, pictures, decisions, reviews and more.

I just went for the Bergdorf Goodman Be Beautiful bag and will post my picture down below in a little bit. There are more of these GWP bags coming up and I would love to discuss your favorites, what the gifts bags have or will contain. I even have the idea that we could possible negotiate swaps between the gift bags and potentially go in to share a bag (split the gift and $250 purchase) for example..Lots to discuss!

 

Dates-please post any info that you get and I will try to update

 

Neiman Marcus Beauty Event February 11th 2016- gift with purchase, gifts and buy in TBA

 

Space NK- TBA I believe it is coming up in February

 

Barney's Gift bag- February/March (there is already a thread for this specific event, so just mentioning it)

 

Let's gift it up!!!

 

Edit: if you got a gift bag and want to switch up, swap or stockpile your faves, head on over to this thread

Is this usually a good value? I need to search and see what last year's was like to get an idea. Thanks for sharing @Sansara

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

@AnneMCC yeah, it is usually 5-7 products, mostly skincare and mostly full size. Set is aprox with 45-50% discount, price is around 200$. Picture is from last November (there were two kits - in May and in November).

Wow it looks super nice! Can't wait to see. Now have to decide if I want to pre-order/wait list for it..

@AnneMCC The waitlist just ensures you get an email to buy before they open it up to the public. There's no obligation to buy so doesn't hurt to sign up anyways. That's what I'm doing. Smiley Happy

@bonafide11 oh thanks for telling me! I was wondering about that. Ya know, my purchase 'fear of commitment' won't have to worry about that lol

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

@Sansara  Thank you!!  I was waiting for this, and still regret not getting the last one.

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

@Ispend2much6 Hope this box will be awesome! I will post when any spoilers or full info will be available.

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

Thank you, @Sansara.  I wasn't impressed at first with the last one, had even ordered it, but I canceled.  Then I tried my Zelens and Kypris samples and regretted it because they were great!

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

@Ispend2much6 oh, I still have my Zelens, need to try it. I skipped box last May cause it was box with cleansers. Even if it is great, it has to match your needs. But you always can gift something, or split with someone from BT or friends or even sell things you don`t need. Hope next box will make you happy Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

I tried the Zelens after I did either an acid peel  or exfoliator.  That seemed to work well.

$150 buy in

april 19-30

can presell now. I can give my SA recommendation. You get bloomingsdale points too. Shipping however is like $5 through my SA however. I still prefer her than website but if free shipping to you means more than bloomingsdale power points (last time I got 25 dollar gift card) then go with the online store. My SA is in Chesnut Hill MA. Her name is Loren 617-630-6768. You can say you were referred by Alexandra. I think you can also kindly ask her for more samples since the online store offers some promos right now but I can't guarantee that! Worth trying!

 

I have to acknowledge I was myself referred by @iwantitfree a couple of months ago

thanks again!

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

Oh no, why did i have to see this thread!!! I'm unfamiliar with a lot of these stores...spaceNK for instance. I love, love, love GWP/Gift Bags! Now if I can quit my monthly subscriptions I could afford these buy ins!

Glad it is working for you.  Loren also contacted me about this event.  I have to decide what I need......er....want!

Thanks for posting @Alexmarya I was just about to do a SpaceNK order and I will hold off. I didn't realize they do a spring gift, I feel like they just had one didn't they?
