If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
I received my latest promo code and wanted to go over the contents while it is still available for those considering it. The promo code WATERWORKS gives a 12-piece sample bag with a $35 purchase. It is also available in store, but you will need to show a picture of the promo to the sales associate. The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel is deluxe sized, and the other 11 items are foils. This bag coincides with the 2x points event on skincare at Sephora. Ulta also celebrates skin in January with the Love Your Skin Event. If you happen upon this article after this offer expires, I keep a general listing of Sephora sample bags.
There are bloggers who calculate value on foils. Because I do not believe in assigning value to foils, I never do. Foils are a valuable tool in giving us access to new products and tiny travel friendly versions of ones we already know and love. They should always be free given their temporary packaging. I always calculate value on deluxe sizes. Some brands sell items in deluxe items and even if they don’t, there is actual value in a deluxe sample.
The items inside this sample bag are:
This promo code has a $5 value and the benefit of using whichever foils interest you. There are a couple I want to try and a few I already know and love. While I generally disagree with a $35 buy-in for a disposable bag of foils with one deluxe item, it is worth it if you want to place the order and cannot find anything better. It is also worth it if there is anything in here you really want to try. You could always order some of these samples during the selection period but even if you got any samples, they will probably not be the ones you ordered. The bag almost guarantees you a shot to try them.
Sephora does not inform a single Beauty Insider of all deals. Certain offers are targeted and others have different purchase minimums based on the code. Remember to check New Offers and/or Recycled Offers before placing an online order. If you’re spending over $25, you can add a promo code to any order. See all Rewards Bazaar and Sephora articles.
