Lancome Purchase, Free Gifts, And How To Save $$$



I wasn't planning to go shopping today but my sister called me while I was at work and told me that she wanted to check out the Boston Store because Lancome was having a free gift with purchase sale.
So with that said, I stopped by her place and picked her up when I got off work before heading to the mall.
When we got there, we found out that Goodwill was giving out coupons. Goodwill, in collaboration with the Boston Store, will give you one coupon per item you donate. Since today was the first day of the promotion, we got double coupons, Yaye! You can use as many coupons as you want. One coupon per item you want to purchase.



Here is what you can get with the coupons:
  • Valid from March 9 through March 23, 2011
  • 20% off apparel, fine jewelries, footwear, or accessories
  • 15% off cosmetics, fragrance, home store, or luggage item
  • 10% off toy, electronics, small electrics, health & wellness, furniture, rug, furniture accessories.
I didn't want to buy makeup because I have plenty to play with but I've been wanting to try the Genefique serum. I tried the tester and wow, this feels like silk. I can't wait to use it. The sale associate told me that this serum is good for all ages to help prevent wrinkles and keep the skin looking youthful.



Here is what Lancome says about this serum:
"Our first skincare that boosts the activity of genes1 and stimulates the production of youth proteins2. A true skincare innovation with 7 worldwide patents pending, Génifique is the foundation of every woman’s skincare at any age or for any skin concern.

1In-vitro test on genes.
2Clinical study on skin proteins associated with young skin – France.

Result:
Visibly younger skin in just 7 days. Skin looks as if lit from within – breathtaking radiant. Its youthful quality returns: cushiony soft and velvety to the touch. Drop by drop, skin is vibrant with youth, its tone becomes astonishingly even, its texture dramatically refined."

I purchased the 1.7 oz bottle. Initially, I just wanted the 1 oz bottle but because I was getting such a great deal out of this purchase, I went with the larger bottle. The sale associate said that this should last me about 9 months. The original price of this 1.7 oz bottle is $98.00 (pricy I know) but with the Goodwill coupon, I saved $14.70. On top of that, I reactivated my Boston charge card that I didn't use for a long time, which gave me an additional 20% off, which is another $16.66 off the price tag. In the end, my total before tax came down to $66.64. I saved $31.36.

On top of my savings, I was given the free gifts. You need to spend at least $32.50 in order to qualify. If your total is $65 or more, you get additional free gifts. Surprisingly, the sale associate slipped in an extra lotion for me...I didn't know that until I got home. So I was very grateful and happy.

My free gifts include:
  • a sample size Genefique serum, .25 oz
  • an eyeshadow quad
  • a Color Design lipstick
  • a sample size Definicils mascara
  • Bi-Facil makeup remover, 1.7 oz
  • Lancome Hi-Resolution face moisturizer
  • Lancome Tresor body lotion, 2.5 oz (additional gift)
  • Lancome Tresor roll-on perfume (additional gift)

Here's a direct link to Lancome's sale at the Boston Store http://www.bostonstore.com/shop/beauty-fragrance/lanc-me/

I will try to do a review on the Genefique serum after I have had the chance to use it for at least a month.

What do you think of my purchase? Do you plan to go shopping at Boston Store?

  1. My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII(www.geocities.jp/hongkong_skii/index_e.htm) to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It's good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren't that great and I stopped using. But my mum's moisturizer is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it
