Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Thanks to @notcreative for starting the Deals Too Good to Pass Up (and website of the same name).

 

This thread will be for posting deals too good to pass up!  In this thread, please keep deals on topic - mainstream/"prestige" beauty only.  Please post deals you really love, and think others will love, too!

 

Help us keep this thread fun and interactive.  If a deal has already been posted, please do not post the same deal a second time.  This will keep the thread easy to read.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@Ispend2much6 Thanks for sharing!  I have seen this come up before.  Here are two previous boxes from 2020 for anyone who is thinking about this:

Spoiler
dgl2eyz4yyl51.jpgizlgmerksfd51.jpg

Has anyone got these before?  As I'm learning more about subscription boxes I'm also learning about brands I've never heard of.  For example, there's a brand 111skin, that's sold in high end department stores, and is also a frequent addition in subscription boxes.  From what I've learned, the products that are sold in subscription boxes are made in China, whereas the products that are sold in the department stores are made in Europe.

 

Ever since I read about the Valsartan drug recall, I'm weary of anything made in China.  

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@itscarin   Thanks for the past boxes photos- I didn't find those when I searched for some reason.  Now that I see them, I may regret my decision to purchase this as my bday present.

I think I remember reading that China issue with beauty boxes; maybe not all of them or all products, but wasn't Boxycharm involved in that?  I hope the products are correctly labeled if so.  Did you happen to hear anything about that?

These boxes are supposed to have high-end products in them...we'll see.

Totally agree with you about being concerned about drugs/cosmetics from China.  Hopefully we will continue to pursue manufacturing our own, like we used to.  That's not a guarantee, but it seems more likely to be safe. 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@Ispend2much6 Yes the 111Skin thing is something I came across in connection with BoxyCharm.  

 

I'm on the fence about this issue because on one hand I can see how some of it is fear mongering.  Cosmetic companies, for example, often warn about counterfeit cosmetics and show the counterfeit labs where these items are made, and yes, they're truly disgusting.  I wouldn't knowingly purchase a counterfeit anything, but I would buy from an "unauthorized" retailer, provided I did not have a reason to think the item was counterfeit.  

 

So much stuff is made in China, and for the most part, it's fine.  But then you read about some drug manufacturer in China that decided to cut corners by using a cheaper solvent to make a drug, and it erodes any trust you may have had in Chinese health and safety regulations.

 

I mean, who knows?  There's a $39 jar of Glo Recipe Banana Souffle Moisture Cream coming in my March Box of Boxy Charm, along with some items, and I only paid $25 for it.  Maybe the Glo Recipe is produced more cheaply in some manufacturing plant other than the one it normally is manufactured in, and they keep their costs down by using some known carcinogens.  😐 

 

I have no idea why this stuff is so cheap!  LOL, conversely, I also have no idea why some make up is so expensive.  Yes, the packaging is a factor.  I remember someone once said 'this drugstore face powder is the same as this high end face powder because they have same ingredients' and someone else pointed out that yes they can be the same ingredients, but not necessarily the same quality.  I guess a more tangible example of this is cashmere.  Like, yes Banana Republic sells cashmere, but is it the same is Burberry cashmere?  Nope.  

 

Sorry about going off on the tangent... I'm just allergic (mentally) to stuff made in China lately.  And I'm very salty about the blood pressure drug recall with the known carcinogens.  So much blame to be shared -- FDA didn't do Americans any favors either.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@itscarin   You're fine; what you are saying makes perfect sense.  FDA releasing any type of medical without testing adequately and saying it's safe is not good.  Let people who want to take the chance and have no alternatives use it, at their risk.  But don't do your stealth testing on an entire population.

 

One aspect that I wish was different is being able to easily and adequately know where the components to beauty products, supplements, and medications come from.  I don't know if there is anything of these made of 100% USA materials, even if made here.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

I don't know how long it will be available, but Trendmood has a Boscia box with body products up. $32, free shipping.  Shipping available in Canada!  Sorry for the sloppy editing repeat at the end.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Not the best deal but free shipping today at QVC.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Estee Lauder has a discount game.  I played several times, and I'm confident in saying that 1 or 2 of your 3 spins will be a 20% off coupon.   The next most frequent offer is a free Rebel Rose lipstick in a cute Valentine case.  The least frequent offer was a Nutrition line kit worth $125.  Buy-ins required for freebies.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@Ispend2much6 Thanks for sharing the mini game! It doesn't seem like it's available on the CA site so I played on the US site just for fun. The free lippie's design is super festive! 😊

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@Guessgal   Well boo!  I wish it was on the CA site.  Yes, it's so adorable!  I saw Emily Noel on YouTube review the new EL primer; it looks really good.
